Autoimmune Issues

What is Autoimmune Disease?

Autoimmune disorders cause abnormally low activity or over activity of the immune system. In  cases of immune system over activity, the body attacks and damages its  own tissues (autoimmune diseases). Immune deficiency diseases decrease  the body's ability to fight invaders, causing vulnerability to  infections.

 In response to an unknown trigger, the immune system may begin producing  antibodies that instead of fighting infections, attack the body's own  tissues. Treatment for autoimmune diseases generally focuses on reducing  immune system activity. 

What are some Autoimmune Disorders you have treated?

The list of Autoimmune disorders is expansive.  Some examples of autoimmune cases we have treated are Addison's Disease, Celiac Disease, Chron's Disease, Fibromyalgia, Hashimoto's, Interstital Cystitis, Lyme Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Pancreatitis, Psoriasis, Rheumotoid Arthritis, and Sclerodomo.

The list is expansive and we more than likely treat many more labeled as autoimmune disorders.

How do I begin treatment?

Each new patient dealing with an autoimmune disorder gets a one hour consultation with Dr. Rucker in order to review their medical history.  This allows Dr. Rucker to build a protocol based on the patient's respective needs. 

Do I need to have labwork done prior to consultation?

Many of our patients dealing with an autoimmune disorder have had extensive labwork done prior to visiting our office.  Typically we can use the previous medical records during the initial consultation.  If Dr. Rucker wants additional labwork performed we can have our patients get the labs performed after the initial consultation.

If the patient has not had labs done in over a year a lab slip can be sent to the patient prior to the initial consultation.

How often will I be getting treatment in your office?

That depends on the recommendation of Dr. Rucker.  Some of our patients come in for weekly IV Therapy, while some patients use our Ozone Steam Sauna a couple of times per week and our PEMF on a daily basis.

It all depends on Dr. Rucker's recommendation and figuring out the best protocol for each individual patient.

How much is the initial consultation?

The initial consultation is $995 and we dedicate 90 Minutes with Dr. Rucker to go over your history and develop an individual based protocol.  We do not bill insurance for the consultation or any of the alternative therapies but will happy to provided you a detailed invoice that you can submit to your insurance company.
