Game Changing Autoimmune Protocol

Patients who have been ill for years with Th1/Th17 inflammatory symptoms usually collect a wide range of diagnostic labels in their quest for answers. A diagnosis is just a doctor's best guess, and can at times be useful to help determine treatment choices in some diseases or for getting disability. Some doctors order specialized testing to try to verify all possible diagnoses because they are thinking of them as separate diseases and do not recognize the common etiology. The determination to thoroughly test and diagnose is based on the premise that symptoms can then be managed, or individualized treatment can be determined.

Autoimmune diseases tend to be viewed as separate entities. A broader perspective, however, may reveal that shared mechanisms are the cause of disease, rather than just its byproduct. If this perspective were applied, patients would benefit from improved therapies and early intervention, before the development of irreversible tissue damage.

However, all the so-called ‘autoimmune’ diseases and many chronic illnesses are now believed to be variations of the Th1/TH2/Th17 inflammatory process. An exact diagnosis isn't important. It is important to understand that an autoimmune disease is a ‘STATE’ that the immune system is in. It is NOT a disease of an organ; and even though it is given a multitude of names depending on the tissue currently affected, it is a STATE of the immune system attacking the tissue it was meant to protect.

Autoimmune diseases are characterized by the body's immune responses being directed against its own tissues, causing prolonged inflammation and subsequent tissue destruction. Autoimmune disorders can cause immune-responsive cells to attack the linings of the joints--resulting in rheumatoid arthritis--or trigger immune cells to attack the insulin-producing islet cells of the pancreas leading to insulin-dependent diabetes.

A healthy immune system recognizes, identifies, remembers, attacks, and destroys bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and cancer cells or any health-damaging agents not normally present in the body. A defective immune system, on the other hand, wreaks havoc throughout the host by directing antibodies against its own tissues.
