Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune disease treatmentThere are many different types of auto immune diseases that can be treated and even reversed using nutritional medicine. Auto immune diseases are complicated problems involving poor health which can effect one or more systems of the body and there can be are many different symptoms as a result.

The key to treating an auto immune disease is removing the underlying cause/s that tell the immune system to start an attack on the body itself. Once this is done the auto immune disease can then be reversed and from that point the body can begin to heal the damage caused by the disease.

Often with auto immune diseases there are multiple antagonists responsible for firing up the immune system, this coupled with a loss of communication between the body and the immune system causes the negative reaction. With treating an auto immune disease its important to not only remove the antagonists but also to re-establish proper communication allowing the immune system to realize the difference between the antagonist and the body part that is being attacked.

What Causes Autoimmune disease?

The first thing you need to know about autoimmune disease is that you cannot have an autoimmune disease unless you have specific genes or a genetic disposition, that means autoimmune disease runs in families, this however does not mean that you will get the same autoimmune disease as other members of your family.

What’s also clear about autoimmune disease is that just having a genetic inheritance is not enough to ensure that you will get the disease, other factors such as one or more environmental factors act as a trigger to kick start the disease.  Anything such as an infection, foods, emotional stress, exposure to chemicals, toxic metals, nutritional imbalance, pregnancy and having a leaky gut sets the stage for the development of an autoimmune disease.

Autoimmune Disease & Genetics

Many specific genes have been found to be associated with common autoimmune disease.  These genes are referred to as gene mutations or gene alterations or gene disorders or faulty genes, there are many different names but they all essentially mean the same thing, that the gene does work the way it should.

A common misconception is that if you have a genetic problem that means that you can’t do anything about it, nothing could be more untrue.  Just because you have a gene disorder for example does mean that you can’t change your circumstances, get relief from autoimmune disease and even resolve an autoimmune disease.

When it comes to faulty genes there is some good news, gene mutations that cause autoimmune disease respond really well to targeted nutrition.  Once you know which genes are behind your specific autoimmune disorder, this gives you an advantage in knowing exactly how to treat your condition.

The best way to develop an understanding of where your autoimmune disease is coming from is through DNA testing and analysis.  Testing your genes for defects based on your already diagnosed auto immune disease or even just your symptoms can be a major advantage in knowing what to do to limit or even resolve an autoimmune disease.  The biggest problem with an auto immune diseases is the damage that is done by the immune system to various organs of the body.
