I have been diagnosed with gall bladder disease, IBD, Hashimoto

Customer Question

I have been diagnosed with gall bladder disease, IBD, Hashimoto Thyroid Disease (thyroid removed), a mystery rash on my skin that I have had for a year and a half that the dermatologist can't figure out, and also endometriosis. I am having surgery in a week to remove the endometriosis and gall bladder. All of these issues have one common denominator, they are all autoimmune issues. Is there anything that can be done besides treat each individual symptom?

Not in regular medicine.
In functional medicine yes. They treat the underlying disease mediators all of the time.
