Autoimmune Diseases in Wheat Ridge

Chiropractic Wheat Ridge CO Mother and Daughter

The immune system is what protects the body from invaders such as bacteria, viruses, toxins, and parasites. Autoimmune diseases in Wheat Ridge are when your immune system attacks the other systems, organs, and tissues in your body. These attacks can target many different kinds of tissues in your body: thyroid, digestive system, joints and even brain tissue like the cerebellum.


Autoimmune diseases and the nervous system in Wheat Ridge

The central nervous system (CNS) is made of the brain and spinal cord. It is responsible for controlling and coordinating every function in your body, especially the function of the immune system. With autoimmune diseases, instead of protecting you, your immune system turns against you. Part of the reason for this is because your CNS has become dysregulated and has lost the ability to control and coordinate the actions of the immune system, think of a soldier going rogue.


What can Chiropractic & Functional Neurology do to help?

Our approach is different because our focus is different. We don’t treat the condition we look at the underlying function. In our experience, the majority of the autoimmune sufferers have never had the function of their nervous system evaluated. The brain and nerve system is the master control system of the body. When connection is lost, communication is lost and the whole system is now flying blind. Our goal is to reestablish communication, and allow the brain to regain control.

With our autoimmune clients we typically comanage with another practitioner (ie: Functional Nutritionist, Naturopath, Medical Doctor) because these conditions can be so complex and guiding the metabolic system back to balance is critical. If you are not currently under the care of another practitioner we will gladly refer you to one of our amazing partners.
