Autoimmune

How would you know that you may have an autoimmune condition?  What’s scary, is that seemingly innocent symptoms may sneak up on you, and you could end up with a full-blown autoimmune condition if not addressed early.

Not getting well? It’s most likely autoimmune, which means that part of the body is attacking itself.  Conditions associated with an autoimmune condition include celiac disease, colitis, types 1 and 2 diabetes, Grave’s disease, Hashimoto’s, leaky gut, allergies, IBS, lupus, arthritis, and more.

Common Symptoms of Autoimmune Conditions:

Skin

Have you developed rashes, or other skin issues, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea, or acne?

Respiratory

Do you suffer from asthma, allergies, dry mouth, or frequent colds?

Brain

Do you experience brain fog, anxiety, headaches, or attention deficit problems?

Thyroid

Do you suffer from extreme fatigue, or hyperactivity? Do you have unexplained weight gain or loss?

Muscles and Joints

Do you wake up with stiff joints or achy muscles?

Adrenals

Feeling burnt-out most of the time?

GI Tract

Are you bloated after a meal?  Do you suffer from frequent constipation or diarrhea?

Neurotoxicity is connected to the rise in most serious autoimmune conditions:

  • cancer
  • diabetes
  • autism
  • hormone imbalance
  • heart disease
  • chronic fatigue syndrome
  • fibromyalgia
  • thyroid conditions
  • chronic pain
  • and all other inflammation-driven diseases

The Solution:  The 3-Legged Stool!

My favorite way to describe the 3 causes of autoimmune conditions, is to ask you to visualize a 3-legged stool!  If all 3 legs are not strong, and functioning properly, the entire stool will fall.  In other words, each of those legs must be addressed in order to create the natural solution in which your body can heal itself.  Here are the 3 legs:

Gene Triggered On

Chronic cellular inflammation, if left unaddressed, can cause bad genes to be triggered on to whatever you are predisposed to.

Stressors (Physical, Chemical, Emotional/Mental)

  • Physical: nerve interference, injuries, auto accidents
  • Chemical:  toxic overload.  There have been over 100,000 chemicals added to our world, and many of us suffer from bioaccumulation from birth to present.
  • Emotional/Mental: We all have stress, but when we have the first two then it makes it even harder to deal with “any” emotional/mental stress that is unavoidable, called “life”.  If you need tools to lower the stress in today’s fast paced lifestyle, we can help.

Gut Health 

Also known as leaky gut, is what all people with autoimmune disorders have in common. Leaky gut is caused when the gut is missing certain bacteria. Scientist have discovered that we have around 2,000 different strains of bacteria in our gut. A typical probiotic can have up to 20 different strains, so it is only part of fixing a gut but not the solution on its own. In fact at times taking a probiotic can make the problem worse if you are suffering from SIBO and that it needs to be addressed first in order to resolve the problem.

Unfortunately, even if you get a diagnosis of autoimmune disorder, the usual treatment typically kills the immune system with steroids or immune suppressing drugs.  These approaches are designed to slow the autoimmune process, when the problem is actually a poor immune system.

We find the true cause, and address the interferences upstream to solve the problem.  The solution is to address all 3 legs of the stool, fix the cell, detox, and turn bad gene back off.
