Scientists discover how to “switch off” autoimmune diseases

Scientists at the University of Bristol have made a fantastic breakthrough in the fight against debilitating autoimmune diseases such as MS, Type 1 Diabetes, and others by revealing how to stop cells attacking healthy body tissue. Rather than the body’s immune system attacking its own tissue, researchers have discovered how cells change from being aggressive to protecting against such diseases.

“Scientists were able to selectively target the cells that cause autoimmune disease by dampening down their aggression against the body’s own tissues while converting them into cells capable of protecting against disease.

This type of conversion has been previously applied to allergies, known as ‘allergic desensitisation’, but its application to autoimmune diseases has only been appreciated recently.

The Bristol group has now revealed how the administration of fragments of the proteins that are normally the target for attack leads to correction of the autoimmune response.

Most importantly, their work reveals that effective treatment is achieved by gradually increasing the dose of antigenic fragment injected.”

We hope that this latest insight into how the human body functions will lead to the widespread use of this therapy as treatment for many autoimmune disorders.

You can find the article and more on the subject on the website of the  University of Bristol.

Treat the cause or the effect?

I use the work being done by Dr. Marty Hinz and his team at NeuroResearch in Duluth, MN to help my patients balance neurotransmitters with nutrition.

And, you say, what is a neurotransmitter?

A neurotransmitter is a chemical released at the end of a nerve fiber that causes the transfer of an impulse to another nerve or muscle fiber or organ – it’s what your body uses to ‘transmit’ the signal.

If you don’t have enough of the signaling chemicals, the message doesn’t get across – like not having enough bars on your cell phone to get a message through.  If you have the wrong blend of signaling chemicals it’s like being in an area without a tower that talks to YOUR carrier.

There are many illnesses caused by an imbalance or deficiency in neurotransmitters, and correcting the underlying cause keeps us from having to chase each issue.

Here is a partial listing of diseases and disorders that are related to unbalanced or inadequate neurotransmitter levels:

Adrenal fatigue or burnout
Alzheimer’s disease
Asperger’s Syndrome
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Serotonin driven coronary artery disease
Chronic pain
Chronic stress
Cognitive deterioration
Cortisol Dysfunction
Crohn’s disease
Depersonalization disorder
GABA dysfunction
Hormonal dysfunction
Inappropriate Aggression
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Migraine Headaches
Nocturnal Myoclonus (Restless Leg Syndrome)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Organ system dysfunction
Panic Attacks
Parkinson’s disease
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Psychotic illness
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Social anxiety disorder
Tension Headaches
Tourette’s syndrome
Traumatic brain injury
Ulcerated Colitis

If you have any of these (and, especially, if you suffer with several) and are not getting satisfactory results with the treatment you are currently receiving, please consider working on the cause, instead of the effects.

New Economic Report Regarding Dietary Supplement Usage

Dietary Supplement Use Could Save Billions Of Dollars In Health Care Costs

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 75% of the money spent on US health care goes toward the treatment of chronic disease, while only 3% goes toward prevention. In their report, sponsored by the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), researchers at Frost and Sulivan conducted a systematic review of hundreds of scientific studies looking at the use of dietary supplements and the resulting impact their use could have on the prevention of four chronic disease categories: coronary heart disease (CHD), diabetes-attributed CHD, age-related eye disease (primarily age-related macular degeneration and cataracts) and osteoporosis. The report demonstrates that the use of dietary supplements among those at high risk of experiencing a costly disease-related event can lead to billions of dollars in health care cost savings, not to mention the improvement in the lives for those individuals and their loved ones.
