Autoimmune & Inflammation

Elusive answers? We can help.

We peel back the onion, if you will, examining layer by layer to understand and treat complex conditions.

We Partner with You

With involved cases, we work closely with you to get a complete picture for diagnosis and treatment.

Functional Medicine

Bloodwork, stool analysis, and adrenal panels can help us glimpse the interconnections contributing to your symptoms.

Inflammation plays a role in all autoimmune conditions—and is what really ages all of us. Acupuncture and our other modalities all have anti-inflammatory effects; with them, we balance, calm, and reactivate an immune response.

Testing plays an important role in our approach to autoimmune and inflammation-related disorders. You may bring lab results that you already have—and we will likely order others. 

Often, Western medicine fails to unearth root causes in these cases because they are looking for the presence of disease, not for subtle or interwoven influences. For example, a patient’s thyroid function may fall within “normal” levels in traditional medical settings but we look at results with various lenses—and at how your body uniquely employs thyroid hormones.

We also place an emphasis on gut health and environmental stressors. And search for causes that may have been missed: hidden infections, parasites, toxicities, allergens, and sensitivities.

Let us help you identify and treat the root causes that present themselves as:

  • Leaky gut
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • Rheumatoid arthritis and Osteoarthritis
  • Hashimoto’s and Graves Disease
  • Eczema and Psoriasis
  • Lupus
  • Irritable Bowel Disease
  • Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis
  • Pernicious anemia
  • Sjögren’s syndrome
  • Mood disorders

One practitioner, drawing on a broad range of medical and holisitic perspectives and utterly devoted to the big picture of your care? Few of us have experienced this in traditional Western medical settings. And particularly for complex cases, this level of attention can be transformative.

I found Concept Wellness when I was the sickest I had ever been with my autoimmune disease. I was facing surgery or steroids I did not want to take as I wanted to have another child. Within six months, thanks to Lisa, I was in complete remission. I finally didn’t have pain every day.
