Learn how to address 4 underlying causes of autoimmune disease.

Are we talking about your health issues? There are more than 100 different autoimmune diseases. Check out the list at the end of this blog. 

Genetics can increase your inherited risk and perhaps prime your immune system so that it’s ready to attack your body. This inherited risk does not guarantee that you will get the disease. Each of the following 4 causes will work with your genetics and increase your risk of developing an autoimmune disease and allow the symptoms to worsen. You can’t do anything about your genetics but you can address 4 causes. 

Four Causes of Autoimmune Disease

The following 4 causes may be interrelated. A problem with one may lead to a problem with another.

  1. Intestinal Bacterial Balance
    • Bacterial balance in the intestines is often the source of the autoimmune disease whether or not you have a genetic tendency. Most of your immune system function comes from your digestive system. Certain types of harmful bacteria from the intestines may release toxins into the body that stimulates or allow the immune system to attack your body.

  1. Low Stomach Acid
    • Stomach acid turns your food into a liquid (tiny particles) and allows the stomach to empty properly and reduces your risk of reflux. If you’re not digesting your food completely and or the intestinal wall is allowing undigested food to be absorbed the immune system will respond to the undigested food and may damage parts of the body. Stomach acid goes into the intestines and helps the good bacteria to thrive and kill the bad bacteria, yeast, and parasites.
    • Solutions include
      Vital Absorption Challenge
      Flourish Vital Absorption Capsules 
  1. Low Vitamin D3
  1. Excess Stress
    • Your adrenal glands make cortisol, a type of natural cortisone, that reduces the symptoms of autoimmune response. Long-term stress fatigues your adrenal glands so that they can’t make enough cortisol.
    • Solutions include:
      ZRT Saliva Cortisol Test
      Flourish Adrenal +B5
