Autoimmune Disease Specialist

It is estimated that there are approximately 80 different autoimmune diseases, with women being the most susceptible to them than men. Many millions of Americans will suffer from an autoimmune disease during their lifetime and will have to seek the guidance of an autoimmune disease specialist.

What are Autoimmune Diseases

Some of the most common autoimmune diseases include Crohn’s disease, endometriosis, psoriasis, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. These, and many other autoimmune diseases, are caused when the when the body’s immune system mistakes healthy tissues as being a danger to the body and so it goes after the, attacks and destroys them.

When the tissues are under attack in this way, they become inflamed and this can result in redness, heat, pain, and swelling in whichever part of the body is affected.

Different Autoimmune Disease Specialists

There is no one title for an autoimmune disease specialist but more often than not they take their title from the condition they treat. If you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, your practitioner can refer you to a specialist who deals with the condition. Some autoimmune disease specialists include:

  • Chiropractor – can offer relief when autoimmune disease can affect the musculoskeletal system.
  • Dermatologist – can help manage autoimmune skin conditions.
  • Endocrinologist – specializes in autoimmune disease of the glands.
  • Gastroenterologist – can treat autoimmune gut issues.
  • Hematologist –treats autoimmune diseases which affect the blood.
  • Nephrologist – is a kidney specialist.
  • Neurologist – can treat autoimmune diseases of the nervous system.
  • Rheumatologist – is trained to deal with arthritis and related diseases.

How Doctors Treat Autoimmune Disease

Many autoimmune disease doctors offer medications to treat the condition. These may offer relief from symptoms, replace substances which the body can no longer make (such as hormones) and may suppress the immune system.

However, many people do not relish a potentially life-long reliance on medication. At LifeWorks Wellness Center, the first step in treating autoimmune diseases is to immunize the patient to their own blood. In this a simple, effective procedure where a small amount of a patient’s blood is taken and mixed with a homeopathic remedy. This combination is then delivered back into the patient. This has the effect of re-programming the patient’s immune system and in many cases, begins the process of improving their symptoms toward recovery.

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
