Autoimmune diseases helped by functional medicine

Autoimmune Illnesses Helped By Functional Medicine

Autoimmune diseases (i.e.,  Hashimoto’s, Thyroid Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Psoriasis, Crohn’s and Colitis, etc.) are sweeping our communities. It’s estimated that about 20% of the population has an immune condition leaving both doctors and patients baffled because of severe symptoms with normal lab results.  Once the immune system creates significant damage, the diagnosis is finally given way after symptoms started and damage occurred.  At this point, patients are only offered symptomatic relief with medications. Does this sound familiar?  Hence, the root cause remains unevaluated and the patient is left with very few options. Real help is here in Huntington Beach / Fountain Valley at Bennett Acupuncture and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Bennett takes a Functional and herbal medicine approach that looks for the root causes instead of simply shutting off the immune system. Plus, acupuncture will help regulate the healing process. Why will functional medicine get to the root cause? The underlying causes may include diet, environment, stubborn infections, toxins, imbalanced gut bacteria, and several other variables.  Dr. Bennett has worked with hundreds of patients, and she believes each person requires a personalized approach to unravel their condition. A one-size-fits-all approach will never work out well in the long run; that’s why we always work with patients to find and address their root cause(s). Our approach is safe, powerful and effective.

Dr. Bennett has served the people of our community and wants to give back to her community.  We want everyone to have the best tools to help themselves conquer their condition and live the best life possible. We have a limited number of special one on one meetings with Dr. Bennett to find out what foods you must include in your diet, how to balance your immune system, how to unravel years of inflammation, safely use herbs, what supplements to take and what to avoid.  Also, Dr. B. will order lab testing you must have done to find the cause.  Call us at 714-962-3031 or visit .   This will be a truly transformational experience and will give you a chance to see if this approach is right for you.

Hypothyroidism disorders and dysregulated immune system.

What role does the thyroid disorders develop from a dysregulated immune system?  How can you treat this?

Most thyroid disorders develop from a dysregulated immune system.  Some research shows 90% of thyroid conditions estimates it are autoimmune, so it’s imperative that we understand why your immune system is attacking your thyroid.  We do this by advanced functional medicine lab testing. Not having healthy thyroid means that you have to reduce the underlying inflammation and this can be a challenge. In the near 15 years in practice, I can tell you it’s difficult just to tell a patient not to eat this and eat more of this instead. Or take this supplement and don’t take that because it’s going to vary from person to person.  That’s why we do the laboratory testing and it’s in the end about uncovering the reasons for their thyroid issues beyond just immune dysregulation and then setting about correcting the failure mechanisms and imbalances.

Common symptoms of hypothyroidism

Increased weight, fatigue, and hair loss are the body’s way of saying something may be wrong with the thyroid. If left untreated, a thyroid condition can lead to chronic and debilitating symptoms.

Because we’re committed to helping the local community, we’re offering a free consultation. This is normally valued at $97. We have helped many people with thyroid symptoms using safe, natural and NON-SURGICAL methods.

We combine Chinese medicine with advanced labs and functional medicine. This combination is extremely profound on the thyroid.-  Dr Bennett
