Autoimmune Illness Symptoms – What is The Real Source?

You can only submit entirely new text for analysis once every 10 seconds.n out of the bloodstream (to help its survival) and sequestering it into the fatty tissue. This is considered a safer storage than in the bloodstream itself.

Our bodies then release chemicals to convert these fat-soluble poisons into a water-soluble form so that they can be eliminated through the stool and the kidney. However, the higher the toxic load, the more compromised the detoxification pathways and the more overtaxed the organs of elimination. Consequently, this bio-accumulation of contaminants stays stored in the organs and tissue. While there, they compete for the same biological space as many nutrients. Therefore, one becomes both poisoned AND undernourished.

To add insult to injury, these contaminants create a hospitable terrain where opportunistic organisms can thrive. This can lead to a yeast and fungal overgrowth in the small intestine, as well as to the increase of bad bacteria, parasites, and a condition called leaky gut, where more toxins from the gut “leak’ into the bloodstream.

All of this triggers what the Japanese call “diseases of the toxic burden”.

What Is The Autoimmune Reaction To All Of This?

When bio-accumulation in the gut and in the tissue becomes extremely elevated, or when a toxin is introduced into the bloodstream in a condition of “leaky gut”, this triggers a reaction where auto-antibodies are released. The initial intention of these auto-antibodies is to find these toxins, these pathogens, and to inflame them so that the white blood cells can use the inflammation as markers to destroy these invaders. However, because this toxic insult is so prevalent, and because this auto-antibody release is 24/7, surrounding healthy tissue also gets inflamed, a sort of collateral damage. After a while, cellular communication breaks down completely and the auto-antibodies cannot distinguish between a pathogen and one’s own healthy tissue. This is when the full force of the body’s immune function turns on itself – a case of misplaced immunity or autoimmunity.

The more the planet carries this burden, the more human bodies carry this burden – and the more the body adapts in creative and confused ways. Many of the autoimmune disorders that are so prevalent now were not around even 25 or thirty years ago. Thirty-five years ago, did you know anybody with fibromyalgia or environmental sensitivity or Type II diabetes or chronic fatigue? How about Autism or symptoms along that spectrum like attention deficit? How about “dry eye syndrome” or the numerous folks you meet who have a sluggish thyroid or a candida infestation? How about the increasing numbers of people who have gluten, casein, corn or soy sensitivities? How many people did you know 30 years ago who could not eat dairy? Or be in the same room as someone with perfume?

All these are autoimmune in nature. And all these are triggered by the increasing toxic insult by our preserved, make-believe foods and by our environment.

Modern man equals great creative innovations. And modern man also equals a slow destruction of the human organism.

The Final Say

We all believe that we “get” these disorders when, in actuality, we “do” these disorders, unintentional though it may be. Our health, or lack of it, is the by-product of our lifestyle choices: the foods that we eat, the air that we breathe, the water that we drink, the attitudes and the stress that we hold. It is said that “Genetics loads the gun, but environment pulls the trigger” and it is no more true than it is today. We cannot control our genetics, but we can make conscious, informed and loving choices about our environment – both inner and outer terrains.

Very simply, the key lies in taking the poison out of our tissue and brains AND in getting proper, whole food nutrition and supplements to our cells. Address our toxic load and the subsequent undernourishment. This we can control!

The answers do not lie in a laboratory where someone is going to discover “the magic bullet” that saves us all. No one else can give us what we refuse to give ourselves. And no one can deny us what we freely give to ourselves.

There is no magic bullet. Never has been. Technology and the control by the vested interests is not the key. Empowering yourself with honest information and then having the courage and the discipline to implement it into your life IS the key.

Genetics DOES load the gun, but the trigger does not HAVE to be pulled. It is up to each of us, first as individuals, and then as the collective. We can grow more conscious and more healthy together.
