Autoimmune conditions in Boulder are on the rise! So much of our immune system relies on the proper function of our gut. Nearly 80% of our immune function stems from the gut and unfortunately, we are bombarded with toxins both in our foods and environmentally on a daily basis. With a continuous stream of toxins causing persistent immune responses, our immune systems can often become overwhelmed and confused and begin attacking organs, and systems in our body without reason! In addition, our gastrointestinal tracts can become compromised and stop functioning properly. Things like constipation, diarrhea, food intolerance and/or sensitivities, and malabsorption start to creep in. In long-standing situations, this can lead to conditions such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.

At Wolfe Functional Medicine, we offer innovative PCR technology to evaluate your GI tract for pathogens, parasites, fungal infection, immune function, inflammation and auto-immune related infections.
