4 Common Triggers of Autoimmune Disease Most People Don’t Even Think About
Autoimmune diseases develop when your immune system starts going into an unhealthy form of overdrive and starts seeing everything as a threat to your health. Even your own cells and organic tissue are identified as hazards.
But it doesn’t stop there, after identifying these “threats”, your immune system will begin to relentlessly attack your own cells and, depending on the type of autoimmune disease you might be dealing with, even your own organic tissue.
Regardless of the pain and discomfort, it will not stop, especially if you’re inadvertently causing a flare-up.
The most common of autoimmune disease are:
1. Rheumatoid arthritis
2. Multiple sclerosis
3. Type 1 diabetes
5. Hashimoto’s disease
6. Inflammatory bowel disease
Despite the extensive research on these diseases, the medical community has still not been able to pinpoint the exact cause or culprit.
Some scientists have discovered that processed food consumption is directly related to the development of some autoimmune diseases because their processed salts cause helper T cells to go into a berserker frenzy.
This leaves the fifty million of Americans coping with these types of diseases with an almost insurmountable chronic and lifelong challenge.
4 Common Triggers of Autoimmune Disease:
Although most people, particularly people who suffer gluten allergies, should avoid consuming gluten, this is particularly true for anyone coping with a chronic autoimmune disease.
Your body’s inability to process the gluten naturally only serves to exacerbate your immune system’s ability to behave adequately without being self-destructive.
Processed sugar is a regular offender on my blog because its toxins are constantly sabotaging not only to your immune system’s ability to handle threats, but also its capacity to to regulate itself before it goes out of control. Replace this with raw organic honey as soon as possible.
You need to avoid this not only for the antibiotics that large cattle owners constantly use on their stock, but because even organic milk can cause your immune to go haywire.
In this case, it’s the casein protein naturally found in milk that causes your body to react with inflammation.
Although it’s currently the staple of many healthy diets due to its amazing fiber content, protein, and iron quantities, it could possibly a hazard to you if you’re coping with an autoimmune disease.
Why? Because quinoa’s saponins can actually cause damage to your gut’s lining thus provoking your immune system to go into overdrive.
