Is It Really Autoimmunity? | El Paso, TX. | Part II

Share

Autoimmunity: One of the most common things is to leave the doctor’s office with a diagnosis of an autoimmune disease and no nutritional or lifestyle changing insight. Autoimmune diseases are related to inflammation. Keeping  the inflammation down is the goal with autoimmune attacks. The foods you eat make a huge difference in the frequency and severity of flare-ups. Steady dietary changes can help you reach your optimal self.

Is Autoimmune Disease A Result Of The Collective Perturbations Of The Exposome & Its Impact On The Immunometabolic System?

High Fiber Influences On Diabetes In Animal Model

80% Of Patients With Autoimmune Disease Are Female

Why?

Estrogen & Autoimmunity

  • The greatest association with autoimmune diseases is the female gender
  • 17‐beta estradiol seems to play a role in activating T cells in autoimmune disease
  • T cells have ER‐alpha receptors that are activated by 17‐beta estradiol resulting in the production of inflammatory cytokines
  • Blocking ER‐alpha receptors may have a beneficial effect on autoimmune activation

Making Friends With Ourselves: Clinical Implications

  • Reduce exposure to agents that activate immunometabolic dysfunction through the exposome
  • – Dietary
  • – Infection
  • – Parasites
  • – Xenobiotics
  • – Hormone
  • – Allergy
  • – Specific medications
  • – Dysbiosis
  • Reduce exposure to DNA damage (radiation, chemicals)
  • Support hepatic detoxification
  • Implement gastrointestinal restoration program
  • Reduce metabolic inflammation and endotoxin
  • Reduce psychological stress factors that activate HPA axis
