Holistic Rheumatology Specialist
What is holistic Rheumatology? Rheumatology is a specialty of medicine that focuses on treating musculoskeletal diseases and systemic autoimmune conditions. In conventional rheumatology pharmaceutical drugs and surgery are the typical first line treatments, however, in holistic rheumatology we focus on correcting the underlying immune imbalance that has lead to the problem in the first place through natural treatments. Common diseases that we can help are rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, psoriatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout and tendonitis.
Why see a holistic rheumatologist? If you have muscles, tendons, bones and joints that are chronically in pain you should see a rheumatologist, especially if the pain is due to an autoimmune condition where your body’s immune system is incorrectly attacking your own tissues. While conventional doctors will prescribe medications to treat the problem, these drugs are not addressing the underlying condition and are often symptomatic. Many of the currently used drugs are not fully understood and flare ups in the disease and symptoms of the disease are still common. There is no cure for these conditions and there are many limitations in addressing the full range of symptoms. These therapies often have numerous side effects and there are many additional ways outside pharmaceuticals to control your condition. Ultimately lasting damage can occur if pain and inflammation is not addressed, so prevent permanent damage later by seeking help now.
