Integrative Medicine in Indialantic, Melbourne, and Brevard County, Florida, A Holistic Approach to Autoimmune Disorders
Are you experiencing the discomfort of aching joints that limit your ability to enjoy the activities you love? Does overwhelming fatigue prevent you from engaging fully with your children? Is brain fog hindering your performance at work and home? These are common indications of autoimmune disorders, medical conditions where the immune system mistakenly targets healthy cells in the body as foreign invaders.
Unfortunately, many individuals with autoimmune disorders are often told by the traditional medical system that they are "normal." Our own medical director, Dr. Rebecca Hunton, personally experienced this dismissal almost 20 years ago when her own autoimmune condition, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, went undiagnosed for years despite appearing as a "normal" thyroid panel.
At Radiantly Healthy MD, we understand the frustration and challenges faced by those with autoimmune disorders. We are committed to addressing the underlying causes, not just managing symptoms. Autoimmune diseases are on the rise, particularly among women and even in the pediatric population. Research in this area is expanding, shedding light on the contributing factors such as genetics, lifestyle, nutrition, the microbiome, and antibiotic use. Importantly, many of these factors can be identified and reversed. If you have a family history of autoimmunity, proactive measures can also be taken to prevent these disorders.
Q: What are some examples of autoimmune disorders and symptoms?
While it can be hard to determine if you are experiencing an autoimmune disorder on your own, some common signs and symptoms to look out for include:
Pain or discomfort in certain muscles and joints
Changes in indigestion, abdominal pain
Our mission at Radiantly Healthy MD is to treat the root cause, not merely the symptoms. We offer an alternative approach that goes beyond symptom suppression and harsh medications. Led by our board-certified medical director, Dr. Rebecca Hunton, our dedicated team will work closely with you to identify your underlying causes and develop a comprehensive plan to regain your radiant health. In some cases, we have even seen autoimmune disorders reversed.

At Radiantly Healthy MD, we combine traditional medical techniques with proven natural alternative treatments to provide you with the best possible care, allowing you to live your life to the fullest.
Hashimoto's disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes the immune system to attack the thyroid, leading to a state of chronic inflammation. This attack can impair the thyroid's ability to produce the needed hormones, resulting in symptoms often associated with hypothyroidism.
