Dr. Musnick has 20+ years of experience in treating autoimmune diseases from a Functional Medicine approach

Dr. Musnick looks for underlying causes of autoimmune disorders, including:

  • Leaky gut
  • Molecular mimicry
  • Toxins
  • And more

Most Rheumatologists do not look for underlying causes

 

Dr. Musnick utilizes different Functional Medicine lab tests to look for antibodies, Zonulin and other proteins in your intestine as a portal of entry into your immune system

He may evaluate your microbiome in your GI tract to see if it is contributing to your autoimmune condition

Treatment programs can include:

Dr. Musnick can work separately with you or as part of a team with your Rheumatologist to decrease or eliminate autoimmunity and to improve your symptoms and your overall health

Many times the approach of labeling your autoimmune disease and matching it with a drug or drugs including a “biologic” does not get at the underlying cause of autoimmunity. The underlying process may continue and a biologic may be only partially beneficial, and may lead to significant side effects. Dr. Musnick uses a Functional Medicine approach which are much more comprehensive to get at the underlying processes that are causing the autoimmune condition.
