Health Conditions : Auto - Immune Disease
Autoimmune disease arises from an inappropriate immune response of the body against substances and tissues normally present in the body. In other words the immune system mistakes some part of the body as a pathogen and attacks its own cells.
There are over 70 classified auto immune diseases and frequently treated are,
Diabetes Type 1
Symptoms of Auto- immune Disease
The symptoms with auto immune syndromes are often quite varied. Often, there is genetic predisposition, environmental insult, low stomach acid, which can then lead to inadequately digested proteins in the gut or inflammation associated with food sensitivities, this in turn leads to increased intestinal permeability and then an increased load on the liver and detoxification pathways. This can then lead to tissue specific symptoms, which were determined by genetics and the above mentioned antecedents and then ultimately the development of auto immune syndromes.
How can nutripharmdirect help?
The most common approach we take are assessing gastro intestinal health, looking at leaky gut undetected bacterial or viral infections and very commonly, undiagnosed gluten sensitivity. It is this gluten sensitivity that is driving many inflammatory and auto immune conditions. An autoimmune disease diet will normally consist of the avoidance of foods that trigger symptoms. we would look to do a digestive stool test and a food intolerance test to assess gut function, and look at inflammatory foods.
