Autoimmune disorders refer to the condition in which the body attacks its own healthy cells. Current medical approaches to tackling diseases related to Immune System Dysregulation involve treating the symptoms instead of the root causes. Take control of your life and health by managing the root causes of chronic inflammation in your body to bring your autoimmune disease into remission.
Test for Mercury and Mycotoxins
Mercury and Mycotoxin – a toxic substance produced by mould have been implicated in problems associated with immune cell activation causing autoimmune dysfunction. Consult with a functional medicine practitioner to help you determine if you are dealing with heavy metal exposure. If you still have amalgam fillings in your teeth, visit a dental practitioner to have them replaced.
Change your Diet
In the immortal words of Hippocrates “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” and consider drastically changing your diet. Eliminate sugars and processed food that contribute to issues of gut permeability. Eliminate inflammatory foods like grains, legumes, dairy and vegetables from the nightshade family. If you don’t know where to begin with changing your diet, consider signing up for a Paleo meal delivery service to introduce you to possibilities of the Paleo Food approach, helpful in managing inflammation and leaky gut causes of autoimmune diseases.
Manage Stress Levels
Not only does stress trigger autoimmune disease but the disease itself can also trigger a great amount of stress trapping you in a never-ending cycle of the illness. Aggressively eliminate or manage your individual sources of stress as it disrupts immune pathways that intensify dysregulated immune responses and attack your own system, joints or organs. Proactively maintain a calm disposition by regular meditation, yoga and daily gratitude practice.
With these approaches directed to the root causes of immune dysregulation, you have hope to live a full like and put your autoimmune disease into remission.
