Dr. David Bilstrom to expand reach with agency’s expertise.
(Las Vegas) Your Marking Liaison has been retained by David Bilstrom (M.D. P.C), to handle his e-commerce, social media, digital advertising, content creation and public relations.
Ginger Allen, CEO of Your Marketing Liaison, says the agency is honored to work with Dr. Bilstrom, “to share important advances in the medical treatment of autoimmune disease.”
According to Dr. Bilstrom, a person can see four to five doctors over a period of 3 to 5 years before their symptoms are finally identified as an autoimmune disease. Once the disease is identified, patients are usually prescribed medication that is temporarily affective at best and destructive at worst.
Dr. Bilstrom incorporates a philosophy that chronic disease mandates a treatment plan with patient education to afford the most comprehensive outcome. He estimates that there are over 50 million Americans that have an autoimmune disease and it is reaching epidemic portions.
“One important fact to know is that while there are over 100 different names for autoimmune disease, there is really one disease that can impact any body part,” Dr. Bilstrom explains. “By addressing the underlying causes of the immune system disruption, not only is the primary body part being affected able to heal, but all of the person’s other health issues are able to be reversed as well.”
Dr. Bilstrom is now the director of the International Autoimmune Institute and the Bingham Memorial Center for Functional Medicine. The clinic is the first and only one in the country associated with a teaching hospital that specializes in reversing and preventing autoimmune disease. The practice is based in Blackfoot, Idaho, after Dr. Bilstrom spent two years to locate the right teaching hospital.
A positive ANA test (a positive anti-nuclear antibody) is a sign that the immune system is now attacking a person’s own DNA. The positive ANA test is a marker of autoimmune disease but is not a named disease, so people are told to wait until they feel worse and additional tests are positive so a “diagnosis” can be made and medication prescribed.
“I named the disease that is a positive ANA only, Bilstrom’s Nuclearitis, so the treatment can start earlier, before people feel even worse, and when the autoimmune process can be more easily reversed,” says Dr. Bilstrom. He can also help couples before conception and pregnant women so that an autoimmune disease will be less likely to develop in their children and future generations as a result of bad genes being turned on and good genes being turned off. This is called epigenetics.
Dr. Bilstrom is a fellow of the American Academy of Integrative Medicine and American Academy of Medical Acupuncture as well as an advanced fellow in anti-aging, regenerative, and functional medicine. Dr. Bilstrom is quadruple board certified in Anti-aging and Regenerative Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Medical Acupuncture.
The clinic is accessible from the Idaho Falls Regional Airport and an eight-hour drive from Las Vegas. For more information, call (208) 782-2444 or visit drdavidbilstrom.com.
