Autoimmune Disease Interventions
Autoimmune diseases happen when your body’s immune system begins attacking healthy cells. A broad range of chronic illnesses can occur when the immune system glitches in this way. There is no specific or certain cure for autoimmune diseases. However, faulty immune reactions and resulting symptoms can be counteracted and managed through compounded drug treatments.
For a majority of patients, treatment and symptoms of autoimmune conditions are life-altering. These chronic conditions can be a burden for patients and families.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides safe and reliable compounding medications to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
Treating Autoimmune Diseases with Low-Dose Naltrexone
Physicians in the 1980s began treating alcoholics and people struggling with various addictions by giving them naltrexone. This drug would help patients increase their quality of life and get through difficult withdrawal periods. It would also decrease the risk of a relapse.
There is evidence now that low-dose naltrexone can benefit people with a wide range of medical issues. This includes autoimmune conditions. LDN binds to the brain’s opioid reactors. This stimulates endorphin production in the brain. Endorphins are your body’s ‘feel good’ hormones. Increased endorphin production in the body helps in regulating those parts of the immune system which attack the body.
With this approach, the symptoms of your autoimmune disease can be reduced and controlled so that you can get your life back. Your physician will carefully take a look at your autoimmune disease and overall health as a whole. This will be done for determining whether you make an ideal candidate for LDN treatment or not.
Full spectrum and professional grade CBD or cannabidiol oil has proved to be very beneficial in treating a wide range of autoimmune conditions. CBD goes a long way in reducing pain and inflammation in the body. It also modulates the immune system. Most patients tolerate CBD well. However, it may cause drowsiness in some.
This is why physicians recommend starting with a nighttime dose to see the effects. You need to stick with CBD since it can take a few weeks for benefits to manifest completely. Pharmaceutical grade CBD products are recommended since potency and purity is consistently guaranteed in each batch.
Other Options for Compounded Drug Interventions
Symptoms in many autoimmune diseases can be sent into remission with proper drug therapy. Treatments are aimed at avoiding flare-ups. Drugs used for treating autoimmune disorders include prednisone, methylprednisolone, and dexamethasone among other anti-inflammatory agents. Sirolimus, methotrexate, and cyclophosphamide are other forms of potent drugs used for suppressing the immune system that are not corticosteroids.
Disease-modifying drugs or biologic response modifiers are among the newest class of drugs. This includes etanercept, belimumab, and infliximab, which are effective at reducing inflammation. These drugs have several side effects that may interfere with other medications. Thyroid hormone, vitamins, and insulin may be used for controlling symptoms resulting from organ or tissue destruction in some autoimmune diseases.
