(NaturalHealth365) Autoimmune-Autoinflammatory Syndrome induced by Adjuvants is a recently-discovered condition related to adverse reactions from ingredients called adjuvants used in some vaccinations. The syndrome was named “Autoimmune/Autoinflammatory Syndrome induced by Adjuvants” in 2011 and is abbreviated with the acronym – ASIA.
The symptoms of ASIA include generalized persistent fatigue, dry mouth, neurological difficulties, sleeping disorders, muscle wasting, cognitive issues, arthralgias, myalgias and even early death. The condition of Gulf War Syndrome has numerous symptoms in common with ASIA.
Aluminum adjuvant in vaccinations seems to do the most damage
One of the adjuvants most often used in vaccinations is aluminum. However, aluminum is a known neurotoxin that can cause an array of problematic metabolic reactions. Exposure to even small amounts of aluminum is can lead to numerous neurological disorders and cognitive symptoms. Children receive many times the FDA- allowed amount of aluminum from vaccines administered during their first six months of life.
The autoimmune condition of ASIA was first identified by Israeli doctor Dr. Yehuda Schoenfeld of the Zabludowicz Center for Autoimmune Diseases. However, it has since become so widespread that the 9th International Congress on Autoimmunity created a world registry to keep track of those afflicted by it.
Majority of ASIA cases traced to hepatitis B vaccine
Dr. Schoenfeld says that ASIA symptoms can often take years to manifest. Doctors unaware of the condition often bounce patients around to different specialists in the search for the cause.
The hepatitis B vaccination has been identified as one of the leading causes of ASIA from adjuvants. This vaccine is often administered to infants right out of the womb. Over 70 percent of known ASIA cases have manifested following hepatitis B vaccinations. And, an estimated 73 percent of all ASIA cases have been associated with the aluminum adjuvants in vaccines.
Other common vaccines that use aluminum as an adjuvant include hepatitis A, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, human papillomavirus (HPV), Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), and pneumococcus infection. Vaccines for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, chicken pox, rotavirus and the seasonal flu virus do not contain aluminum.
Genetics a factor in autoimmune response to vaccine adjuvants
Dr. Schoenfeld and his research team determined aluminum and vaccine adjuvants that cause ASIA do so by disrupting the body’s immune system in intricate ways. The damage then extends to endocrine functioning and genetic expression.
These research findings were published in the journal Immunologic Research in 2013. There is also evidence that preexisting genetic factors play a role in whether someone will have a reaction to an aluminum adjuvant. Both aluminum and silicone from breast implants have been named primary causes of autoimmune diseases.
The stated purpose of adjuvants is to “help vaccines work better” by boosting immune response. The CDC website says that aluminum has been used “safely” as an adjuvant in vaccines since the 1930s. However, the surge in ASIA cases indicates that either patients were misdiagnosed in the past, or something in vaccines has changed dramatically for the worse in recent years.
