Multiple joint pains, muscle aches and pains, joint swelling, sore dry eyes, skin problems, gut symptoms, fatigue, foggy brain, inflammation, or a sensation of feeling unwell, are some of the problems patients with autoimmune conditions present with.
Autoimmune conditions can occur in clusters so a patient may have more than one autoimmune condition. Some common autoimmune conditions include Hashimotos hypothyroid, Diabetes, Sjogrens, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Raynaud’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Coeliac disease or other inflammatory bowel diseases and many others.
Autoimmune conditions can be clinically challenging and are often complex to manage because many organ systems of the body may be involved. This may be complicated If a patient has other co-existing medical conditions. A personalised and integrative approach would be required to manage and optimise their health.
At QIM, our practitioners are trained to address not just the symptoms but also the cause/s of the symptoms, treating the whole person and not just the disease.
