Autoimmune Diseases


What Is An Autoimmune Disease?

Your immune system is designed to defend our body against infections and diseases.  When your immune system does not work correctly, it can either become underactive or overactive.  Underactive means things like immune deficiencies and frequent illnesses.  The other type occurs when it mistakenly attacks our own healthy cells, tissues, and organs.  When this happens it is called an autoimmune disease.   This can affect any part of the body, weakening your body and can even be life-threatening.

There are over 50 million Americans ( 1 in every 6 people) suffering with some form of an autoimmune disease.  In fact, there are even millions more that have symptoms but have not even been diagnosed.  An autoimmune disease doesn’t just suddenly happen, they develop slowly over months and years but typically only get worse over time and can severely diminish your activity and can rob you of your quality of life.

If you have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease you often face a grim reality.  Current treatment options like prescription pain medications, anti- inflammatory drugs, and immune suppressant treatments try to address the symptoms and not the root cause of the actual problem, which is why most people continue to suffer or even get worse over time.  Most often taking the medication approach has limited results or worse like create terrible side effects. In many instances, your doctor may have even told you that you’ll just have to “live with it”.  THIS IS JUST NOT TRUE!

Autoimmune Treatment  Options

When it comes to treating any type of autoimmune issue, it’s important to know there is hope. At Health Source Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine we are helping people get back to doing the things they love with the people they love. In fact, we pride ourselves on being the last resort with the BEST RESULTS!

With over 20 years of experience we have pioneered a cutting edge solution to help improve autoimmune diseases. For most of our patients, symptoms experienced from your autoimmune disease can be reduced, or even eliminated in certain cases.

Our innovative Bio Electric Cellular Regeneration (BECR™) Method is a painless, drug free, non-invasive and most importantly, a personalized medical treatment solution developed by Dr. Dominic Sembello, L.Ac.

Over the course of his two decade plus career he has helped thousands of patients with all types of chronic illnesses and chronic pain get results they didn’t even think were possible. The BECR™ Method addresses not only the symptoms but treats the root cause of why you possibly developed an autoimmune disease in the first place.

The root cause of ANY health issues, including autoimmune disease, are the result of months and years of cellular regenerative deficiencies which over time leads to chronic inflammation in the body and reduced immune system function. BECR™ helps restore cellular function which allows the body to unlock its true healing potential, which is how we help our patients achieve an 80% to 90% success rate for those that receive care in our clinic.

Scientifically, BECR™ Does Three Main Things

Increases ATP production in the cells which increases cellular energy so that your body can reduce inflammation and promote faster healing.

Facilitates oxygen, circulation, and nutrient uptake to restore damaged nerves, tissue, and organ function as much as possible.

Puts your body into the optimal nervous system state to rest, relax, and repair.  This is known as the parasympathic state, which is required for healing.

Is BECR™ Right For You?

The BECR™ Method is designed specifically to treat the underlying root causes not just cover up the symptoms.    

An initial consultation is first required so we can find out more about your unique health situation to find out if the BECR™ Method is even an appropriate treatment option to help you get the results you desire. This simply can not be determined over the phone, you need to be evaluated in our office.

Our Promise To You


During your consultation, we’ll listen to your unique situation.        No two people are exactly the same and symptoms manifest differently for everyone. We want to understand you and what you are going through.


  • Can we actually help you?
  • What are your treatment options?
  • How many treatments are needed?


If our clinic or treatment options are not right for you, we’ll tell you.  We don’t want to waste your time, we are here to help you.  We are happy to point you toward another doctor, or clinic, or treatment option, if possible.


You might be asking yourself, "Why should I do this now, why not just wait or push it down the road?"

Well... you could keep pushing it down the road and cross your fingers and hope that things magically get better, OR,
if you want to take back control of your health the best time to take action is NOW. 

Did you know that the vast majority of patients we help in our office have suffered for 5, 10, 15 and even 20 years or more before actually coming into our office?  It's true.

One of the most common phrases we hear from our patients is that they wish they had done this sooner. 

When it comes to treating autoimmune diseases, the “conventional care or standard of care” approaches which are a “one size fit all approach” often times don't provide enough relief from your symptoms.

Things like prescription medications, infusions, steroids or other medical interventions don’t actually treat the underlying issue at a cellular level.  This is why temporary or short term relief typically occurs, because it is only masking the real problem and not working to correct it.
If your body does not have the proper cellular activity and regenerative energy to help the immune system function better, there is no way to truly experience your true healing potential.

This is why most people come into our office in the first place.  In our office we take a different approach to find out the underlying root cause so we can work to correct it.  When we take this approach, it puts your body in the best position to unlock its healing potential.

Well...we are not quite sure it would yet.  Did we really just say that?

We would have to meet you first and find out about your unique health situation as no two people are exactly the same. That is why we would have to meet you first to find out more about you.

The reality is there is no guarantee that any medical procedure or treatment will work.  If someone gives you a guarantee that a treatment will work, turn and run the other way.

If after meeting you, we feel strongly we could help you then we can discuss your options.  If we feel that other options might be better for you, we will be more than happy to point you in a different direction.

How does hearing this from your doctor make you feel?

Sadly, this is exactly what we hear from our patients ALL THE TIME! The reason doctors say this is because they simply don't know what else to do for you.  It's not that your doctors aren't skilled or well qualified, it's just that within the current medical system they are working within,  they have exhausted the options they actually know. 

With over 20 years of experience specializing chronic health illness and diseases of all types where standard medical care has not been the answer, we have helped thousands of people who have been deemed “hopeless” or “untreatable” get results that people didn’t think were even possible.

Not if your past 175 years old...just kidding 🙂

YES!!! Why wouldn't it work for you? Our treatments work with human physiology and biology, rather than against and has nothing to do with your age. We have patients who are 6 years old all the way into their 90’s and everywhere in between that see improvement with their health issues.

Now, we haven't met you yet, so we are not sure if we can even help you.  This is why you have to come in for a consultation, so we can understand more about your unique situation and find out if the medical solutions we offer could actually help you.

Oh my goodness, what a great question!!!

We have helped thousands of patients over 20 plus years.  Our proven track record of success stories for those that seek care at our office speak for themselves.  We get that you are probably skeptical or even doubtful that you can even be helped, and you know what...that makes total sense.

But don't take our word for it, see for yourself.  Take a look on this page and on our website and social media, or even our google reviews. These are just a fraction of the success stories from our patients who have so kindly shared their own experiences.  See how the results they achieved changed their lives.

We haven't even met, which is the reason why we have people come in for a consultation in the first place.  Once we have a better understanding of your current health situation, we can then discuss possible options if what we do could actually help you get to where you want to go.

YES! We can guarantee you a couple of things.

We can guarantee that if you continuing doing what you are doing and keep approaching your health situation the same way you are now, than you will just stay in the “status quo”, and most likely get worse, and nothing will ever change for you!

We can also guarantee that if you don't make an appointment, you will never find out if we could possibly help improve your current health situation.

So the question is...  What's riskier?  Staying in the "status quo" and keep letting time go by while your current health situation stays the same or even continues to get worse day after day or year after year OR making an appointment to find out if the medical solutions we offer could actually help change your health situation and life.

The good news is that the choice is YOURS to make.
