There are more than 80 known autoimmune diseases. Some of the most common include lupus, MS (multiple sclerosis), RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis), Crohn’s, colitis, and Type 1 diabetes. These conditions are generally characterized by the body’s immune system turning on itself. This system tasked with defending the body from diseases and infections mistakenly attacks healthy cells, tissues, and organs – weakening and even threatening the health and function of the affected body part.
At the New York Center for Integrative Medicine in Manhattan, we have a powerful antidote: IV therapy. While these conditions may not always be “cure-able,” intravenous therapy works with your body’s unique physiology – not against it – to ease symptoms, such as persistent aches and pains, impaired concentration, low-grade fever, swelling, rashes, and hair loss. Additionally, we may be able to head off flare-ups and improve patients’ overall quality of life.
With each patient’s concerns, we take a big picture view. We can identify risk factors specific to the individual and pinpoint those “triggers” that increase the severity and frequency of symptoms associated with autoimmune diseases. Furthermore, through comprehensive bloodwork and assessments, we can better understand your body’s needs. These findings inform treatment planning. IV therapy and the infusion process can be planned and administered in a highly personalized manner to deliver just the right amount of beneficial substances to make a difference in chronic diseases that inhibit immune function. IV therapy and, more broadly, our comprehensive and integrative approaches can even reduce the reliance that our patients have had on medications, which may only provide fleeting symptom relief.
Formulas designed specifically for each individual and delivered intravenously may include:
We can further personalize treatment for autoimmune conditions by integrating the many other available therapeutic options alongside IV therapy. Acupuncture, mind-body medicine (such as biofeedback), and targeted nutraceuticals can also promote lasting healing and well-being with intravenous treatment.
