Miscarriages, Inflammation and Autoimmunity
Posted By Braverman IVF & Reproductive Immunology || 21-March-2018
Short Term Medicinal and long Term Natural Remedies
Over the last 20 years we have clearly documented the role of Autoimmunity and Inflammation as a cause of:
Late Pregnancy Complications such as:
Fetal Growth Restriction (IUGR)
Our detailed immunology profiles have not only led us to treatments for those with active autoimmune disease and the above complications, but also to the discovery that many woman who present to us for treatment have
1. Pre autoimmune disease (all the early elevations of inflammatory markers and the genetics that will lead to active autoimmune disease)
2. Active but underlying autoimmune disease (all the markers are present but currently no active symptoms)
3. All the genetics for predisposition to autoimmunity but no active markers at all (which does contribute to the above complications , but only predicts the likelihood that these autoimmune diseases may activate at a later date)
After successful pregnancies at our center, we have seen many of our patients begin to experience symptoms of autoimmune disease at later dates and it has become so obvious to us that our care must not finish with the successful pregnancy, but that we have to help guide our patients to help reduce the likelihood of activation or exacerbation of these autoimmune conditions.
We are so excited to announce our affiliation with the nation’s leading expert in Lifestyle and Diet modifications to treat autoimmune disease, Aimee Raupp, to help us treat our patients during and long after they finish their therapy with us. Our job is not complete until we build families and also reduce the effect of these autoimmune predispositions and active autoimmune syndromes in our patient population.
This is an area that we literally just “fell into” but feel a strong sense of obligation to improve the lives of all of our patients after our care.
Dr. Raupp is available for all of our patients during our care to help with Diet Modification and Lifestyle Changes that reduce or eliminate the likelihood of autoimmune disease. She can answer all your questions about all the different diets that we recommend to reduce inflammation and assist us in our medicinal therapies during your care and of course help you maintain your health once you are finished being treated at our center.
Her prices are very reasonable
but her advice is invaluable.
I recommend everyone consult with her at some point during or after your care with us at Braverman Reproductive Immunology.
