Autoimmune Disease

auto-immune disease dr wilmington ncAll auto-immune conditions follow a specific pattern:

1st: You must have the genetic pre-disposition for the condition. These are the hereditary genes that are passed down generation to generation.

2nd: You must have a trigger to “turn it on”. The only known auto-immune disease with a known trigger (gluten), is celiac disease. However, we have seen clinically,that many, if not all, auto-immune diseases respond favorably by following a gluten free lifestyle.

3rd: You must have a leaky gut. Intestinal permeabilty allows large food particles (macromolecules) to enter the bloodstream where antibodies can attack them. Often the immune system goes awry, and these antibodies attack self-tissue, causing the autoimmune condition.

4th: You must have a glutathione defiecency. Glutathione is the “mother-load” of all antioxidants and becomes depleted with increased stress (physicla, chemical or emotional). Research has indicated that with adequate levels of of glutathione, autoimmunity is held at bay.
