Cyrex™ is a Clinical Immunology Laboratory Specializing in Functional Immunology and Autoimmunity. Cyrex™ offers multi-tissue antibody testing for the early detection and monitoring of today’s complex autoimmune conditions. Cyrex™ develops innovative arrays through continuous collaboration with leading experts in medical research and clinical practice.
An autoimmune disease occurs when you immune system starts attacking makes a mistake and instead of fighting bacteria, viruses and other invaders which is it supposed to do, it attached your own tissues.
Traditionally, autoimmune issues are treated by suppressing the immune system with medications such a prednisone to prevent the attack on your tissues. While it helps to slow down the response, the suppressed immune system unfortunately then can’t fight infections and other attackers.
From an integrative perspective, we look at autoimmune not by what organ is being attacked, but rather why the immune system is confused and attacking that organ in the first place.
After all, if someone has rheumatoid arthritis, it is not the joints fault they are being attacked, its because the immune system is confused. Same goes for Hashimoto’s where the thyroid is attacked or lupus where the attack is on the connective tissues which themselves are not at fault.
There are various things that can trigger the immune system such as specific food triggers and sensitivities, toxins such as heavy metals, environmental chemicals and pollutants as well as infections such as hidden viruses, bacteria parasites.
Cyrex Labs offers multi-tissue antibody testing for the early detection and monitoring of today’s complex autoimmune conditions. They offer 10 unique profiles to help find these triggers so that we can use this information to take the burden off the immune system and therefore help slow down the autoimmune attack.
In your initial consultation, we will decide which profiles are right for you and guide you through the process each step of the way.
