Autoimmune disease

How does an autoimmune disease arise?
The immune system is involved in the development of an autoimmune disease. To understand what is happening in your body it is important that you know what the immune system is and how it works.

In the medical literature, an autoimmune disease is described as follows:
Autoimmune diseases arise because the immune system sees the body’s own cells and substances as foreign to the body. The body then starts to form antibodies against its own tissues. The autoimmune diseases can be classified into organ specific and generalized autoimmune diseases.

Your immune system
Different organs work together in your body to prevent pathogens from entering your body. Here we make a distinction between bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. Hereafter jointly referred to as pathogens.

Your skin forms a physical barrier between your body and the environment in which you live. The task of the stomach acid in your stomach is to kill pathogens that come in through your diet. The mucous membranes in your lungs, airways and intestines provide protection there.

If a pathogen enters your body along these limits, it is the immune system’s job to ensure that the intruder is harmless.

Disrupted immune system
There are several factors that can disrupt your immune system, resulting in a chronic inflammatory response. At Intestinal Specialist we focus the treatment on restoring your body and the immune system.

Factors that influence:
-A lack of good nutrients
-Loading foods
-Heavy metal load
-High ignition potential
-The presence of pathogens

The presence of pathogens
In practice, we regularly find the presence of pathogens such as Candida or a parasite in people with Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis. These disrupt the functioning of your digestion, making nutrients less available for your body. This causes a lack of nutrients.

Furthermore, these pathogens cause damage to your intestinal wall. To defend your body, your immune system responds with an inflammatory response. If this takes longer than 42 days, we speak of a chronic inflammatory process. After a while you will get a diagnosis for Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis with the message that you will never get rid of it. That’s right, as long as you don’t tackle the source of immune activation.

Why medication does not offer a sustainable solution
Now that a diagnosis has been made, your immune system is portrayed as the culprit. It would react uncontrollably and attack its own body cells. They have not regularly found a solution for this problem. The only thing doctors can do is prescribe medication that suppresses the immune system and inhibits the inflammatory response.

By using this medication you will (temporarily) feel relief from your symptoms. The major disadvantage of this method is that the medication only suppresses the symptoms and symptoms. The source of the problem remains active in your body. If you stop mediation, it is a matter of time before the chronic inflammation or autoimmune reaction is back. This will seem familiar to many people.

Effects of immunosuppressive medication
Suppression of your immune system entails a number of consequences. Your immune system is responsible for protecting your body and many other important processes in your body. When it cannot perform these functions properly, you become more susceptible to other pathogens and processes.

The reason for energy loss
A chronic activation of your immune system requires a lot of energy from your body. This causes energy loss. Even if you suppress your immune system with medication, it will do everything to fulfill its primary task of protecting your body.

It is a vicious circle that you cannot escape if you continue to follow the same route. By understanding what happens in your body, why your immune system is chronically activated, it becomes clear what you can do to gain control over your health and the course of the disease.
