Understanding Autoimmunity: A Guide For Inner Peace!

Well, believe it or not, autoimmunity may be one of the issues that have been holding you back – even if you don’t know it yet. In this comprehensive blog post, we’ll explore everything there is to know about autoimmunity: what it is, how to diagnose it, and most importantly – how to find inner peace and live a healthier life despite this challenging condition. So let’s get started!

Did you know that autoimmunity begins in the gut?

Autoimmunity is when your body starts attacking your own tissues and organs. That means your immune system has somehow gone haywire. What makes your immune system go haywire? It could be due to one of these: 

  1. Exposure to toxic chemicals
  2. Poor gut health (this is one of the major causes)
  3. Vulnerability to heavy metals
  4. Susceptibility to molds 
  5. Nutritional deficiencies

In order to find out what causes autoimmunity, you have to understand where your immune system lives.

70 to 80% of our immune system lives in the gut. So if your gut is not healthy, your immune system is not healthy. Several times I’ve seen people who have been diagnosed with so many issues. Let’s say, for example, thyroid issues. Major thyroid problems could root from pre-existing autoimmune problems like Hashimoto’s disease. It can be reversed in the early stage and it can be controlled. Just like Hashimoto’s disease, many other autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and very recently, endometriosis and PCOS have been linked to autoimmunity.

The body has many ways to communicate with us, and one way is by showing signs in your health. The more you pay attention, the better chance there is that things can get fixed before it becomes too late!

So how do we actually start healing ourselves?

Healing the Gut.

In my practice, I use the 5 R Protocol. 

  1. Remove foods that cause inflammatory reactions. 
  2. Replace digestive enzymes we digest.
  3. Repopulate the good bacteria. 
  4. Repair your gut lining with certain nutrients and natural herbs (slippery Elm and glutamine for example).
  5. Rebalance your body. When your cortisol, the stress hormone, starts to go up, a lot of stress happens which can trigger an autoimmune reaction.

What do we do next? 

Autoimmune diseases remain a mystery even to experts. For some reason your immune system does not distinguish between healthy tissue and potentially harmful antigens. So as a result, the body sets off a reaction that destroys normal tissues. Although most autoimmune diseases don’t go away on their own, you can treat symptoms and learn to manage these diseases and get to enjoy a fully active life.

In fact, so many of my patients who come to my practice have some form of an autoimmune condition going on. We use the 5 R protocol first to get started. We support the immune system with a good diet, which is composed of nutritious and real food. Next, we do use some supplements and herbs, which will help support your system. Last but not the least, we help with sleep stress management, which is really important, https://www.cdhfinechemical.com/cdh_data/ambien-zolpidem/.
