Autoimmune Disease

IMMUNE MODULATING PROGRAM

50 million Americans currently live with autoimmune disease. Cancer affects approximately 9 million and heart disease affects 22 million. Commonly used immunosuppressant medications end up leading to severe long term damage including immunomodulators and steroids. We advocate for alternative treatments to remove autoimmune triggers and provide the body with the nutrients it requires to boost the immune system and naturally heal autoimmune conditions.

The thymus gland is the key player in treating autoimmune conditions. The Thymus gland begins to lose function after puberty. Thymosin is produced by the thymus gland which increases the stimulation of disease fighting T-cells in the body. T-cells mature in the thymus where they then travel to the lymphatic system and stimulate the immune system.

Millions of Americans are taking methotrexate for autoimmune conditions such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. One-quarter of the population has an MTHFR gene mutation, which studies show are linked to more commonly experiencing side effects of medications. Patients can have elevated homocysteine levels which are linked to heart disease and stroke by taking the medication and not knowing their genetics. The current medical system is made to be a one size cure all, however we strongly believe in a customized approach to our patients based on genetic factors. We assist our patients by helping remove toxic triggers and replenishing your body with the micronutrients to thrive. An autoimmune disease is caused by a specific reason, a medication is used to mask the disease, our goal at Regenerative Medicine LA is figuring out why you have an autoimmune condition and attacking the disease from the core. Specially formulated thymus injections may help your autoimmune condition by reconfiguring the body’s immune system.

In one study, nearly 50% of rats with brain inflammation given immune modulating peptides showed relative functional recovery after 30 days compared to saline controls. A significant reduction of inflammatory infiltration in the brain was documented. Data from this study suggest that peptide treatment comprised of amino acids is a potential pharmacological therapy for Multiple Sclerosis patients.
