COMMON AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE CONDITIONS WE TREAT
Autoimmune diseases are complex, chronic illnesses that can have a number of triggers. They can explain a series of seemingly unlinked symptoms, such as fatigue, joint pain, swelling, skin problems, abdominal pain, digestive issues, inflammation, and more. Let’s find answers.
Autoimmune diseases occur when the immune system starts mistakenly attacking healthy cells. This can cause a range of chronic symptoms that can significantly diminish your quality of life.
If you’ve already tried a traditional treatment approach, you’ll very likely have been prescribed medication to suppress your immune system and mask the symptoms. However, as you probably already know, this can lead to a range of other issues. When you choose a functional medicine approach, we will work with you to identify the triggers, help your body understand the difference between healthy and unhealthy cells, and start reversing the process of autoimmunity.
We’re not here to put a band-aid on the problem, we’re here to help you live a healthy and happy life for many years to come. It’s time to take control and start living the life you want.

Can you work with me?
Telehealth — sometimes called telemedicine — lets you visit your doctor and receive care without an in-person office visit. Telehealth is done primarily online with internet access on your computer, tablet, or smartphone through video conferences and internet phone calls. This remote option is ideal for people who live in remote areas, or need consultation with a specialist whose office is an unreasonable or burdensome distance away. If you have internet access, we can help.
The sooner you start the journey, the more time you’ll be able to enjoy.
It’s absolutely worth the work, effort, and time you put in! I’m loving the results so far and feeling more like myself. I’m integrating what I’m learning into my life and know I’ll always be able to use the positive new skills + tools I’m gaining. I’m incredibly GRATEFUL for Dr. Loy and the entire Thriven team.
I am so thankful for the guidance from the Thriven team and the other practice members who have given me so much knowledge and the tools to continue my healing process. I honestly feel that my quality of life will be improved because of the changes that I’ve been taught through the program.
I have received not only information to stay healthy, but the coaching and encouragement from the staff was exactly what I needed. Getting to the “root” of problems leads the way to better health and sustainability. I believe my health is better for the wisdom of Dr. Loy, and her search for each one of us in better health. It’s all about choices for each one. My thanks for this team of people!
