Living with an Autoimmune Disease can be difficult. Getting the right medications doesn’t have to be.
Living with an autoimmune disease can be challenging. Coping with ever-changing symptoms, understanding the implications of dietary and lifestyle choices, and even managing your complex emotional concerns and those of your loved ones can sometimes make even routine choices difficult. Ensuring that you have ready access to the medications you need to treat flare-ups and manage day-to-day symptoms can, unfortunately, add significant stress into an already stressful life.
At American Integrative Pharmacy, we believe that getting the right medications when you need them should not be difficult or stressful. Our expert staff understands the unique concerns of patients with autoimmune conditions and the critical need for specialized, high-quality medications that match the individual requirements of every patient. We will take the time to speak with you and your physician to understand your disease and your general health concerns, as well as any sensitivities that may impact your medications. And with on-line refills and free shipping to many parts of the country, access to the right medications at the right time has never been easier!
What is an Autoimmune Disease?
An autoimmune disease is a condition in which the body mistakes its own cells for dangerous foreign antigens, attempting to destroy those cells as it would a virus, bacteria, or other invading microorganism. Autoimmune disorders are chronic, usually degenerative, conditions that over time can destroy healthy issue and impair organ function, usually in blood components, endocrine glands, muscles, joints, and skin. There are more than 80 different autoimmune illnesses, including illness such as:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Crohn’s Disease
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Celiac Disease
- Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
- Sjögren Syndrome
- Grave’s Disease
Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for any autoimmune disease. Treatment usually involves managing day-to-day symptoms, and when possible, minimizing the potential for flare-ups. Because many autoimmune diseases involve multiple and oftentimes unique symptoms, creating a highly customized treatment plan based on the unique needs of each individual patient is extremely important.
