autoimmune-disease(NaturalHealth365) Autoimmune diseases currently affect at least 24 million Americans, reports the National Institutes of Health – and this group of devastating disorders is on the rise. Experts say that autoimmune disorders, which include such serious diseases as multiple sclerosis and lupus erythematosus, will soon affect 1 in 12 men and 1 in 9 women.

HUGE announcement: Starting Nov. 14, in response to the growing threat of autoimmune disease, over 85 of the world’s foremost experts in the field of functional medicine and autoimmune research and treatment – physicians, scientists, immunologists, biologists, naturopaths, and nutritionists – have joined together to present a FREE. 7-part docuseries to reveal little-known truths about autoimmune disease.

Western medicine baffled: Conventionally-trained doctors offer no hope for people suffering with autoimmune disease

Autoimmune diseases occur when the immune system mistakes healthy cells for foreign invaders or pathogens and attacks them. This over-reaction creates inflammation, destroys tissue and causes organs to malfunction.

Yet, interesting to note, developing countries with primitive conditions and poor sanitation have virtually no autoimmune disorders. Douglas Kerr, MD, PhD, a faculty neuroscientist at Johns Hopkins Hospital, asserts that most of the risk of developing an autoimmune condition is the result of environmental exposure to toxic chemicals. (Genetics may also play a role)

Of course, in all fairness, autoimmune diseases – with all its overlapping systems and symptoms involved – can be quite difficult to diagnose, especially for the untrained healthcare provider.


Gastrointestinal problems pose a primary threat to human health

Since 80 percent of immune system cells are located in the gut, it’s not surprising that autoimmune diseases are often connected to gastrointestinal issues.  For example, vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain can be a clue that you may have Celiac disease – one type of autoimmune disorder which causes inflammation of the small intestines.

Diarrhea, nausea and stomach cramps are also common symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), a chronic inflammation of the gut and lining of the large intestine. And ‘leaky gut’ – in which undigested food particles and bacteria escape the intestine and enter the bloodstream – feature symptoms of cramping, gas and bloating that are virtually indistinguishable from those of IBD.

Other signs that you may have an autoimmune condition include, constipation, diabetes, frequent urination and unusual changes in body weight or appetite.

Don’t ignore the warning signs: Emotional instability and sleep disorders demand your attention

Autoimmune diseases can wreak havoc on your mood. Keep in mind, depression that doesn’t go away – after a reasonable amount of time – can be a sign of serious (underlying) health issues like, Hashimoto’s or Graves’ disease.

Don’t panic: If you’re diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder – just understand that there are a variety of natural protocols designed to eliminate your unwanted symptoms and promote the self-healing response of the body. The right diet – filled with allergen-free, anti-inflammatory organic foods will most certainly help.

Other key components toward healing the body (and mind) involve cleaning up the gut; taking the right dose (and quality) supplements and incorporating many other useful lifestyle habits like aromatherapy, homeopathy and stress-reduction techniques.

Don’t miss this extraordinary event: Betrayal, a FREE, 7-day docuseries will showcase 85 top experts talking about exactly what you need to know to cure autoimmune disease – safely and naturally.

    I know quite a few people that have been diagnosed with an autoimmune problem. This seems to a widespread source of health problems. I doubt that this was always the case. It must be due in part to lifestyle.

  • Omar Kaletta

    May family are from a part of the world where don’t experience so many of these problems. Now, that we are in America we find that we are having more of these symptoms.

  • Ethan Barnes

    I never heard of autoimmune disease until recently. I think that it is becoming more prevalent. Also, I hope it doesn’t become a catch all when a doctor has no idea what is going on.

  • Bella Chase

    When I was told I had and autoimmune disease, the only solution I was given was a prescription for an anti-inflammatory. That is not what I was looking for. What I wanted was some ideas on how I can change the course of the condition.

  • Chuck

    Thanks for a very informative and also hopeful article. For years my wife told she had to stay on very powerful medication for her condition, I signed up to hear what else can be done to help her get her life back to normal.

  • Jody A

    Since childhood I have seen my mother suffer from major thyroid problems. So far no one has been able to help. Doctors have tried various thyroid medications without much success.

    This may be an autoimmune disorder as some doctors suggested. I just signed up for the event in the hopes of finding things out that the doctors aren’t aware of.

  • Gordon Bisbe

    We have not taken big strides in either understanding or treating autoimmune disease. This seems typical of the medical profession give something a name without understanding what caused it.

  • Winston Reading

    I don’t support the notion by giving medicine you can change anything. In medicine the only interaction between a doctor and patient is take what I give and we are working together. As if prescriptions are a panacea for all ills. I like the notion that it takes work on the part of the patient to change things.

    I signed up for this, because it has a message that we can apply to our own lives to heal.

  • Arthur Ardel

    I learned the hard way there in no short-cut to healing, it takes hard work and diligence. Once people understand that they will stop asking for pills to fix everything.

    All these autoimmune disorders are caused by a neurotransmitter imbalance which causes too high of serotonin levels. It is serotonin toxicity that causes the problems.

    autoimmune diseases are quite easy to fix with the correct diet and supplementation, I’ve seen it several times. I used to co-host a radio show for a great Naturopath, and we helped many people get off dangerous drugs that were making things worse for them.

    what’s recommended for hashimoto’s? Or years of (sorry TMI) internal hemmerhoids? I’m told that the latter is caused by a toxic liver?

  • Crohn’s Question

    I have Crohn’s. I am interested in trying this. You mean it fully cured your crohn’s and you were able to reason a normal diet after fasting on raw goat’s milk for two weeks?
