What is autoimmune disease? An easy explanation is your immune system has been over stimulated and is now attacking your body. I remember sitting in the car with my daughter when the test results came in confirming she had autoimmune antibodies. She was crying and said, “My body is not supposed to attack itself.” It broke my heart. She is right, your immune system should not attack your body.
Our immune systems are supposed to protect us from virus, bacteria, toxins and infections. Our immune systems are not supposed to “protect” us from our organs. When you get a cut your immune system gears up and sends blood to the area to flush the wound and clean the area. The cut will become inflamed as your immune system does its’ job.
When you are exposed to a cold virus again your immune system rallies and sends antibodies to fight off the cold. You might run a fever as your immune system fights the cold or flu.
Autoimmune can be caused by leaky gut, stress, and infections to name a few. If you have leaky gut food is getting into the blood stream that does not belong there. Your body sees food in the blood as an invader. The same food in your gut might not be an issue. Your body does its’ job and attacks the food in the blood. Your immune system creates antibodies to combat the invader. Your immune system is now constantly battling the food in the blood and it goes into overdrive and in the worse case,starts attacking self.
I know my daughter has been leaky gut for a while. She was away at school eating the standard American diet, SAD, in the cafeteria. This was the first time in her life she was inundated with foods from SAD. This alone probably caused great stress in her body. She was under stress from her class load and jobs. She had not been well the semester leading up to her crash. She had a bout of what she called food poisoning that sent her to bed for three days. Her immune system was definitely over worked. At the hospital we learned she had multiple infections.
Autoimmunity changes the way you treat any illness. The herbs she would have taken in the past to support her immune can’t be used now because they boost the immune system. Her immune system is already on overdrive it doesn’t need to be boosted. We are finding new ways to support her without stimulating her immune system.
Last weekend I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. O’Bryan. He is the author of The Autoimmune Fix and put together Betrayal – The Series. If you did not watch Betrayal when it was on last month I would urge to catch it next week when it will be aired again.
Why is Autoimmune disease so hard to cure – or even diagnose? The truth is this: We cannot change what we do not understand.
In just a few days Dr. Tom O’Bryan invites you to begin a deeply personal journey with his powerful FREE 7-Part documentary series “Betrayal: the autoimmune disease solution they’re not telling you.” This documentary is crucial for you if you know someone with autoimmune disease, have it yourself or simply want to be proactive and prevent it.
Do you have someone in your life that is suffering with rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, celiac disease, thyroid disease such as hashimoto’s, dementia and alzheimer’s? Or are you yourself facing a life-debilitating disease?
This project leaves Dr. Tom’s hands after 30 years of clinical research, patient care and relationships and it goes out to the world at large to change the face of autoimmunity.
This is my invitation to you to watch the Betrayal series for FREE as my guest. Register here for access to the series, as my guest.
“Doing these interviews has been a privilege and one of the most inspirational experiences of my life. I literally traveled the globe (twice) gathering interviews from the leading minds on autoimmunity.” ~ Dr. Tom O’Bryan
The world’s leading minds say that autoimmunity is the core cause for almost ALL disease, for cardiovascular disease, for CANCER. Even for depression and suicide.
Autoimmune disease robs our youth, steals our years and ruins lives... But it CAN be reversed and put into remission... this is the information desperately needed.
The Betrayal series is yours as our gift to you. There’s no cost, other than your time – and that is an investment you will gain back a hundred fold in health. AND PLEASE SHARE this email with those you love who are affected. Just register for access to the series, as my guest.
Even ONE piece of information from just one of the experts on Betrayal could be the tipping point for you. One insight from Dr. David Perlmutter or Dr. Joseph Mercola, Mike Adams, Dr. Mark Hyman or one of our doctors and scientists from around the GLOBE that Dr. Tom interviewed – from England, Portugal, Italy or Germany, the list goes on… The seven episodes of Betrayal are made up of over EIGHTY-FIVE interviews.
There are scores of stories of breakthroughs. These are people that have stopped or even reversed their disease! And I want yours to be one of those.
