Rheumatology Services Functional

Rather than expensive drugs with many side effects to manage symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, Functional Medicine looks at the triggers that created the imbalance that caused this autoimmune condition and seeks to remove that cause. Examples of triggers are certain bacteria and viruses, toxic mold, gluten, leaky gut and intestinal infections, mercury and other heavy metals, and dental infections from some root canal treated teeth. The immune system is supported while addressing these underlying causes.
