Your immune system’s job is to protect you. Your bone marrow produces the soldiers – your white blood cells (WBC). These young WBCs must be trained, so they go to the thymus for boot camp. Then your trained WBCs travel around your body looking for invaders. They depend on your tonsils, appendix, and lymph nodes to hold onto any suspicious organisms. Once your WBCs capture the invaders, they travel to your spleen. In your spleen, your WBCs are debriefed. The information regarding the safety of your body is then communicated to the thymus via cytokines – the tiniest of hormones.
Natural Treatment of Autoimmunity
- Balance your Hypothalamus – since your hypothalamus controls your immune response, supporting your hypothalamus is crucial in lowering the damaging autoimmune antibodies. The specially formulated Sacred Seven® amino acids in Genesis Gold® optimizes hypothalamic communication and lowers autoimmune antibodies much more rapidly than with conventional therapy alone.
- Heal your gut -Your colon has a very intelligent transpermeable membrane. It only allows tiny water molecules in and out. If your colon is damaged, it becomes leaky, allowing toxins and undigested food particles to escape into the bloodstream. These bypass the liver and become irritants. Your body responds to your leaky gut by making lots of antibodies. You develop food allergies. You begin attacking yourself. This is called autoimmunity.
- Sleep in the dark – If you don’t get enough sleep, you will get sick. If you don’t sleep in the dark, you will stay sick. Your hormones will not come into balance unless you sleep in the dark. Your brain chemistry will not be balanced unless your sleep in the dark. Your immune system will not protect you and, in fact, may begin to attack you, unless you sleep in the dark. Your gut won’t heal unless you sleep in the dark. Nothing will heal unless you sleep in the dark.
- Eliminate the underlying trigger of your autoimmunity – It’s important to find the deep underlying trigger for each individual’s autoimmune disorder. Interestingly enough, the trigger to autoimmune disease is different for everyone. Some autoimmune disorders are triggered by stress. Some by toxins. Some by malnutrition. Some by viruses or intracellular bacterium. Sometimes there are multiple causes that trigger autoimmune response. Often people with one type of autoimmune disease will eventually develop other autoimmune disorders.
