Autoimmune Diseases are chronic inflammatory diseases that occur when the immune system for some inexplicable reason turns against our body.
Essentially our body attacks and tries to destroy its own cells and organs.
There are at least 80 types of autoimmune disorders that can affect any part of a healthy body.
An Autoimmune Disease can affect one or more types of tissues. It can also cause abnormal growth of organs and changes in their function.
Our goal is to identify and manage the causes of the disease.
Main Causes of Autoimmune Diseases
The human gut is the gateway to health, as it hosts 80% of our immune system. We can not have a healthy immune system without a healthy gut. Scientific research has shown that during an Autoimmune Disease, the intestinal permeability may be affected, allowing insoluble food particles, germs, toxins and other molecules to escape from the gut and enter the bloodstream. All these particles are recognized by our immune system as foreign invaders, creating high alertness in the immune system and causing inflammation.
Gluten contributes to Autoimmune Disease in three main ways. First, it is the main cause of leaky gut syndrome, as gluten activates the release of zonulin in your intestines, a chemical that tells your gut lining to “open up”. Second, it is very inflammatory, which means that it stresses your immune system. Third, gluten protein has a similar chemical structure to certain tissues in your body (specifically your thyroid), which can lead to molecular imitation, where your body mistakenly identifies tissues with gluten and attacks them.
Toxic molds (mycotoxins) and heavy metals such as mercury are the two main toxins observed in patients. Mycotoxins are highly volatile compounds produced by toxic molds that wreak havoc on the immune system. We are exposed to heavy metals, such as mercury, in a variety of ways such as e.g. filling with mercury amalgam on the teeth. Mercury is toxic to our bodies and can be a puzzle piece for those with Autoimmune Diseases.
Scientists believe that infections by bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms may be to blame for the development of autoimmunity. There are several microorganisms, such as Epstein Barr virus, herpes simplex 1 and 2, E. Coli that have been linked to autoimmune diseases.
Anxiety and Stress
Anxiety and stress have been shown to cause and exacerbate Autoimmune Disorders. Stress disrupts immune function through various channels. Chronic stress leads to long-term inflammation that never ends, creating Autoimmune disease.
Autoimmune Diseases can be cured.
Carrying out diagnostic tests at the cellular level combined with a medical history test that includes epigenetic factors, any deficiencies at the cellular level can be identified. Furthermore, accumulations of elements in the adipose tissue of cells can be detected, that act aggravatingly for the occurrence of Autoimmune Diseases.
Biochemical diversion, which can lead to cell “mutation”, can then be successfully treated with targeted therapy, which contributes to the restoration of biochemical diversions.
