Autoimmune Conditions

doctor discussing autoimmune disease with patient

Anatara Medicine is committed to helping individuals overcome autoimmune conditions through powerful innovative and natural therapies that address the root cause of these diseases. 

By getting to the root cause, rather than simply treating symptoms, we can help our patients achieve long-lasting relief and vibrant health. 

Page Summary: What are autoimmune conditions, why does the body attack itself, examples of autoimmune conditions, and the powerful natural therapies we use to treat them.

What is an Autoimmune Condition?

An autoimmune condition is a disease in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues. 

Normally, the immune system helps protect the body from harmful invaders such as bacteria and viruses. However, in autoimmune conditions, the immune system seemingly mistakes healthy cells for foreign invaders and attacks them.

Why the Body Attacks Itself

The reasons why the body attacks itself are complex and can vary from person to person. 

Some factors that can contribute to autoimmune conditions include: 

  • Genetics
  • Exposure to environmental toxins (metals, mold, viruses, etc.)
  • Infections (present and past)
  • Leaky Gut 
  • Imbalance of the gut microbiome
  • Imbalanced Immune System
  • Chronic Stress
  • Nutritional Deficiencies

Examples of Autoimmune Conditions

There are over 80 autoimmune conditions, each with unique symptoms and underlying causes. 

Some examples of autoimmune conditions include 

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Lupus
  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis)
  • Psoriasis

Our Approach

Lab Testing at Anatara

We take a comprehensive approach to treating autoimmune conditions. We believe that every patient is unique and that the underlying causes of their condition must be addressed in order to get you to a state of well-being and provide you the tools to achieve lasting results. 

To this end, we begin with a very thorough patient workup, which includes an in-depth medical history, a physical examination, and various kinds of lab tests. 

These tests can assist in identifying the causal factors in your condition. Based on this information, we formulate a personalized treatment protocol that is tailored to your specific situation. 

Our goal is to help you achieve optimal health and wellness by addressing the root causes of your condition and using safe, natural treatment therapies to promote natural healing processes.

Therapies We Use to Treat Autoimmune Conditions

At Anatara Medicine, we take a comprehensive approach to treating autoimmune conditions. 

We use a variety of natural therapies that work together to address the underlying causes of the disease rather than simply masking symptoms. 

Some of the therapies & approaches we may use include:

  • Ozone Therapy is a natural therapy that uses ozone gas to help reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and support the immune system, making it a valuable tool for treating autoimmune conditions.
  • Extracorporeal Blood Oxygenation and Ozonation (EBOO) is a high-powered ozone therapy that cleans up the blood, supports immune function, improves circulation, and reduces inflammation in treating autoimmune conditions.
  • IV Therapies provide targeted nutrients directly to the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and ensuring maximum absorption and effectiveness in treating autoimmune conditions.
  • Fixing Nutritional Deficiencies – Nutritional deficiencies can contribute to non-optimum health, inflammation, and immune dysfunction. We help our patients optimize their nutrient status and support their body’s natural healing processes through targeted supplementation, IV therapies, and dietary interventions.
  • Heavy Metal Toxicity Testing & Therapies – Heavy metal toxicity can contribute to autoimmune conditions. We offer testing and treatment for heavy metal toxicity.
  • Addressing Stealth Pathogens – Chronic infections such as Lyme disease or Epstein-Barr virus can contribute to autoimmune conditions. We work with our patients to identify and treat these underlying infections.
  • Peptide Therapies – Peptides are naturally occurring molecules that can help regulate immune function, reduce inflammation, and support tissue repair.
  • Mitochondrial Optimization – Mitochondria are the energy-producing structures within our cells. When they are not functioning correctly, they can produce excess free radicals and trigger inflammation, contributing to immune dysfunction and the development of autoimmune conditions.
  • Infrared Sauna – Infrared saunas can help improve circulation, stimulate the lymphatic system, and support detoxification.
  • PEMF – Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy can help reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and support cellular repair.
  • Diet – We work with patients to develop personalized diets tailored to their needs. This may include eliminating certain foods that trigger inflammation, increasing nutrient-dense foods, and supporting gut health. We offer food allergy testing to help identify any sensitivities or intolerances.
