At OnePeak Medical we can help get to the root of what is causing your autoimmune disorder and provide the care needed to get your health back on track. We offer on-site blood draws to test your autoimmune panels and will help come up with a treatment plan to combat your autoimmune disease.
Autoimmune Diseases on the Rise
Autoimmune disease is at an all-time high affecting over 24 million people in the United States alone.
At OnePeak Medical, we take the functional medicine approach to help restore your health and reverse symptoms without solely relying on prescription drugs or surgery. Our healthcare providers understand that this approach to medicine leads to better outcomes and ultimately gets you back on track faster.
Find and Treat the Root Cause
In most cases, traditional medicine “treats” autoimmune disease with pharmaceutical drugs to suppress the immune system, reduce inflammation, or alleviate other symptoms. However, this approach simply hides the symptoms and does not seek to find and treat the underlying causes of the disease.
Our approach treats autoimmune diseases differently than traditional medicine. Instead of only using medications to mask the symptoms, we are focused on getting to the root cause and returning your immune system to a healthy and balanced state.

What makes our standard of care so unique at OnePeak Medical, is that nutrition is woven into your overall plan of care.

Autoimmune diseases generally cause inflammation and various symptoms. Some have more specific symptoms, but most autoimmune diseases also cause non-specific symptoms such as:

Their non-specific, multisystemic symptoms often lead to a delay in a specific diagnosis from being made.
