What research shows about autoimmune diseases



 
Research is showing that most, if not all, autoimmune diseases are underpinned by the same factors: a substance offered to the body, the immune system overreacting to the substance, and an uncommonly leaky gut. Autoimmune disorders happen when the body attacks its own tissues. Autoimmune disorders include conditions and diseases such as celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, obesity, diabetes, breast cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and acute ischemic heart disease.

A study of the factors of celiac disease has shown that genetic components, as well as proteins from foods, are involved in autoimmune disorders. An article on the study was published in Scientific America. The study suggests that autoimmune disorders may be food-triggered. When certain foods are eaten, the immune system is set off to go through a process of reactions that cause autoimmune disorders.

Celiac disease is a gluten-intolerance disease which can be reversed by eliminating gluten from the diet. Celiac symptoms include bloating, diarrhea, malabsorption of nutrients, and indigestion. These symptoms often lead to further issues, such as anemia, joint pain, skin lesions, epilepsy, chronic fatigue, depression, seizures, and a variety of neurological conditions.

Thankfully, the study found a specific protein that is involved in controlling the spaces in the gut wall that contribute to leaky gut syndrome called zonulin. Drug therapies are being researched to help prevent the autoimmune cascade that is activated by food proteins.

While these drug therapies are being researched, the best way to deal with autoimmune disorders, and the most natural way, is to find out which foods are triggering the response. The best way to do this is to get an antigen leukocyte cellular antibody test (ALCAT) blood test to test for food allergies and intolerances, and eliminate those foods from your diet right away.
