Autoimmunity

Autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, type 1 diabetes, alopecia, vitiligo, psoriasis, etc, are being reported at ever increasing rates. Functional medicine takes a whole new approach to addressing chronic conditions by focusing on the causes, not the symptoms. In his clinic, Dr. Ruscio seeks to help patients with autoimmune symptoms identify the root cause – the trigger causing their immune system to run out of control. This may include autoimmune or anti-inflammatory diet protocols to remove possible triggers, lab test, or removal of environmental exposure.
