Autoimmune Health

An autoimmune disorder occurs when the body's immune system attacks and destroys healthy body tissue by mistake. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune disorders.

   

As we enter the new millennium, we are facing an onslaught of new, unexplained, often undiagnosed, and usually mis-treated health conditions.  Many of these fall into a category called auto-immune conditions, or sometimes referred to as AI.   It is estimated that 50 million Americans have an autoimmune condition.  In comparison, there are 9 million Americans affected with cancer.

So, what is an autoimmune condition, you might ask?  In the simplest terms, it is a condition in which the body develops antibodies, creating an immune response to a particular tissue in the body, resulting in a self-destructing attack on that tissue.   It may involve tissue in the joints, the colon, the pancreas or worse yet, the brain, just to name a few.  When this happens, it may cause at best, impaired function, and at worst, premature death.

Among the more common of these are:  Fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus, autism spectrum disorders, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Type I Diabetes, MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s disease, ulcerative colitis, Irritable bowel syndrome, and Celiac disease.  This isn’t by any means, a comprehensive list of AI disorders.  Today, there are over 100 disorders or syndromes that fall into this category, and the list is growing almost monthly.  Depending on your age, you might look at this list, and realize that most of the conditions were very rarely if ever heard of 15 or 20 years ago.  While some may simply say that they simply weren’t diagnosed “back then”, the truth is, that they didn’t exist.

Sadly, in almost every case, those diagnosed with these conditions are left with a life sentence of hopelessness, that their condition can only be managed, but never resolved. 

Upon receipt of an AI condition, it is usually explained that the cause of your condition is unknown, or simply the result of poor genes, or just bad luck. .  Left to believe that their only, and best option is a conventional pharmaceutical approach that may give them symptomatic comfort while their zest for life spirals downward as their underlying condition absolutely worsens.

The truth is, there is always an explanation for these mysterious conditions, but it takes a comprehensive search to find the underlying cause.  Once uncovered, a specific, and strategic approach must be applied to repair, and reverse the syndrome.  It may not surprise you that the underlying cause of most of these conditions is toxicity.  Much like peeling away the layers of an onion,  your health returns in layers, as you are guided through the process of removing your toxic stressors.
