Now, 1 in 5 Americans has an autoimmune condition.
Autoimmune disorders have increased significantly over the past few decades, from Type I diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis to multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease. So much so that 1 in 5 Americans suffers from an autoimmune condition.
If you are looking for an autoimmune doctor near Hollywood, Florida, come to Rezilir Health™. Our team of doctors is focused on a results-driven approach to treating your systems. A conventional, pharmaceutical-driven method for treating autoimmune diseases usually relies on steroids, immunosuppressants, or biological modifiers.
The duration of these drug treatments, like Humira, is often indefinite and does not ‘cure’ the autoimmune condition. Pharmaceuticals also have the potential for serious side effects, including infection, malignancy, or death.
As many of our patients ask, “what is the cause of autoimmune disease?” While the answer to this is not perfectly understood, there is a significant percentage of people whose autoimmune symptoms can be reduced by adjusting their lifestyle and identifying contributing factors like infections and toxins.
At Rezilir Health™, we take an integrative approach by considering environmental, lifestyle, and genetic influences. This, combined with conventional medicine, helps us better understand the root cause of your autoimmunity and implement a plan to optimize your overall health. Our autoimmune doctors live and work near you and are ready to help.

- Gut deficiencies like dysbiosis and intestinal permeability
- Toxin exposures including heavy metals found in dental fillings, chemicals, and mold
- Infectious exposures

- Mitochondrial dysfunction
- Stress exacerbation
