Autoimmune disease, what does it really mean?

Autoimmune disease, what does it really mean?

May be an image of fire and text that says 'WHAT IS AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE, REALLY?'

A common symptom that haunts those with autoimmune is widespread inflammation, which usually leads to pain in the muscles and joints. The severity and location of the symptoms may vary, depending on underlying health issues and where they originate..

But to make it simple, autoimmune is simply an immune response that seems to be stuck on autopilot. Some believe that it’s a reaction caused by the body being “confused” and it’s attacking itself.

Let me be blunt – the idea the body attacks itself is RIDICULOUS.

This is a response generated by the conventional health industry that have no clue and no interest on how the body REALLY works and how intelligent it is in its response to pervasive health threats. Plus, that self-infliction idea also perfectly aligns with their model of treat the body as the troublemaker, so they can distract you from the real shit disturbers – which is them.

After they successfully get you to blame your body as the problem they then swoop in with their white coats and stethoscopes like counterfeit superheroes to save the day by offering up toxic medications to kill the immune response, and you in the end, and then walk away with their pockets lined and their bellies full, while you suffer from their contrived arrogance.

But many keep going, because they can’t give up on their false God, and they are afraid to leave a relationship that is not helpful at best, and deadly at its worst. For those select few that are brave or frustrated enough, they search for that unicorn that can help save them from their health problems (these unicorns exist, by the way), but they’re not always easy to find (but keep your eyes open, they might be right in front of your face).

But let’s get back to why the body would be on autopilot, causing chronic inflammation. Why would it cause so much pain?

That’s your signal that something is seriously wrong, and shutting down the immune response with medications only makes the problem worse long-term because it’s not the immune response that is the problem, it’s what is CAUSING that response that is the issue

.So, what is the body responding to when it generates symptoms, like inflammation, fever, high liver enzymes, high cholesterol, etc?

INFECTIONS. Biological and chemical in nature mostly, but sometimes ethereal as well.

Biological infections are things like viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungus. Chemical infections are things like heavy metals, glyphosate, parabens, fluoride, and xenoestrogens. Ethereal infections are things like non-native EMFs and emotional traumas.

When any or a combination of these infections become prominent and systemic, the inflammatory response becomes “automatic”, while the body tries to isolate and send resources to the areas to counter it. But in a severe autoimmune case it often doesn’t have enough resources, and like an out of control fire, the firefighters are out matched.

So, to actually beat down the fire, you need to CLEAR the infections, which means providing your body with the nutritional constituents that are the antithesis to the infections, and removing the parts of your lifestyle that only feed it.

A tall task for someone listening to a doctor or trying to figure it out on the internet, because it requires a comprehensive understanding and plan to master the details needed to clear these infections and fill in the nutrient deficiencies that will also be a result of the chronic inflammation.

That’s a lot more information required than ANY doctor would hope to give to you. Which is part of the reason people still suffering (that and people rather keep their habits that be truly healthy).

I hoped you’ve been enlightened and not frightened by my latest blog — A tale of recovery to save a woman who caught OCD, Hypothyroidism and an Autoimmune Disorder –

Please follow along with me on this journey of discovery as I share with you my brush of madness with exquisite clarity. Luckily, I was never a quick fix-it junkie where I said no to many suggestions from board certified or certifiable doctors because I felt it in my soul that it was merely a banaide being placed on my issues. The names of certain doctors have been changed because frankly, I don’t want to be sued for proven their lack in their field. 

Hippocrates was right when he said: Let they food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.
