Clinical immunology is the field of medicine that, through laboratory testing, endeavors to first understand which directive is malfunctioning. Through further blood tests we can usually answer the question of which of the five possible causes led to its failure. Then by using a variety of immuno-active agents, nutritional supplements and detoxifiers we endeavor to reconstitute the immune system so that it can re-engage in the healing process whether it be a situation of; immune deficiency, an auto-immune disease, severe allergy, post Lyme Disease syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or other immune dysfunction such as cancer. To stop and heal from any severe or chronic disease thus requires an addressing of the underlying issues of stress, infection, toxin or nutritional deficiency to create a movement towards health.
Our treatment approach may include a combination of: Immuno-active substances An individualized diet program Nutritional supplementation to support the healing process IV therapy to more quickly support your immune system and resolve nutritional deficiencies Laboratory tests to further clarify and diagnose your problems and to identify issues of; immune damage, toxins, stress, infection, nutritional deficiencies and biochemical imbalances Stress modification therapies Energetic medicine including Acupuncture and Homeopathy.
