Autoimmune disease happens when the body's immune system attacks friendly and important tissue.
These attacks can show up in places like the:
A gut infection can stress the immune system, trigger inflammation, and prevent the gut from healing itself. The Body Ecology Be Clean Kit offers tools you need to fight infection and heal the lining of the gut.
When an autoimmune attack takes place, inflammation occurs as a part of the immune response. With inflammation, tissue damage follows. When enough tissue damage occurs, this tissue becomes stiff and useless. Often, pain accompanies severe tissue damage.
Controlling autoimmune flare-ups is like working with a moving target. Evaluations and adjustments need to constantly be made. This is because the body is in a constant state of response towards its internal environment and the external environment.
A deal breaker in the body is any condition that will inhibit healing and repair. Unless a deal breaker is addressed, progress cannot be made.
Red blood cells deliver oxygen to all areas of the body.
Oxygen is an essential nutrient for every cell in the body and is involved in the production of cellular energy:
Oftentimes, during an inflammatory response or constant immune distress, the endocrine system and especially what are called the pituitary and adrenal glands can become exhausted. Anemia, currently affecting 24.8 percent of the global population according to the latest WHO statistics, must be addressed first for any kind of real progress to be made.1
Body Ecology Super Spirulina Plus is equipped with a rich array of nutrients, including iron, folic acid, and B12:
If blood sugar is drastically rising or falling, or both, this is a condition known as dysglycemia. These fluctuations make it impossible for the endocrine system to reach a state of balance. Again, a healthy endocrine system is essential for gut repair and dampening the inflammatory cascade. Inflammation, as you may already know, is hallmark to autoimmune disorders.
By simply following the 7 Healing Principles of the Body Ecology Diet, you end up practicing proper food combining and reducing the total number of carbohydrates that you ingest:
A gut infection can be parasitic, fungal, or bacterial. Sometimes, several infections are taking place at once. In recent years, gut infections have become even more lethal. Denise Grady reports for The New York Times, based on CDC statistics, that gut infection deaths doubled from 1999 to 2007 and are especially dangerous to the elderly.3
A chronic gut infection will:
If you are battling a gut infection, a gut health support kit can help to greatly reduce the pathogenic load in the body:
In other cases, bacterial or fungal infections can often be controlled and eliminated with diet alone:
Food sensitivity is not just about gluten and casein, which are known as the major culprits in food-related inflammatory disorders:
Any time that the inflammatory cascade is activated (during sudden or long-term stress), the gut can become permeable and allow food particles into the bloodstream that should not be there. Your immune system, doing its job, will identify these large food particles as invaders and tag them for an immune response. When this happens, food sensitivity develops. According to the latest figures from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology, food allergies have become increasingly common, affecting an estimated 8 percent of children. Global sensitization rates (marked by the presence of IgE antibodies) to one or more common allergens among schoolchildren have reached almost 50 percent.4
It's possible to find relief for food sensitivities and allergies when you focus on strengthening the lining of the gut:
Toxicity is the result of living in modern times. Chemical, environmental, and heavy metal toxicity are issues that we all deal with on some level. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists confirms that harmful environmental chemicals can be found in almost all areas of life — from food to water to soil to consumer products. All people face daily toxin exposure, with special dangers to pregnant women, to dozens of different chemicals as the new "norm."5 Whether or not this develops into sensitivity, triggering an immune response and the breakdown of tissue, again depends on the health of the rest of the body. However, if toxicity is never fully addressed, it will be impossible to manage the inflammatory conditions found in many autoimmune diseases.
With toxicity, we often see a congested and overloaded liver. This is because the liver is the primary organ responsible for clearing out toxic debris from the body.
In order for the liver to do its job properly, the large intestine must be doing its job, and bowel elimination must take place on at least a daily basis:
Autoimmune diseases occur when the body's immune system attacks its own healthy tissue. This causes inflammation and chronic tissue damage.
