Autoimmune Diseases

The Major Cause of Chronic Diseases

Autoimmune diseases arise when the organism attacks and destroys its own cells and organs. One out of ten European Union citizens suffers from an autoimmune disease.

We have reached a point where autoimmune diseases make up the majority of chronic diseases and affect the health of more people than cardiovascular diseases or cancer.


Why is this happening   

According to new studies, the higher the standard of living, the greater the incidence of autoimmune diseases; it is the price we pay for a lifestyle that departs more and more from a natural way of living. 

In order to understand what exactly is happening we must examine the problem at its source: the cellular level.

Cells are the biological units that make up the organism. Colonies of cells sharing common characteristics aggregate to form organs and ultimately a human body.

The operating condition of the cells reflects the organism's general state of health. 

Any cell is made up of certain chemical compounds that can be divided into two broad categories: structural and functional. These compounds, which are vital to the existence and proper functioning of cells, are procured through food. They include minerals, amino acids, proteins, vitamins, enzymes, fats and carbohydrates.

The question is: does the food we eat provide the body with the compounds it needs to build its tissues and perform vital cellular functions? And can it do so in the required quality and quantity to stay healthy? 


Our food has changed

The difference between the food we consume today and the food we consumed just fifty years ago is tremendous. 

In order to get the same amount of nutrients one lettuce could provide fifty years ago, today one has to eat ten, which is rather impractical. The same goes for the rest of man's food, of both vegetable and animal origin. 

What can be done

1. Specific metabolomic examminations give us the necessary guidelines for the restoration of the cells' native state. According to Harvard Medical School, metabolomics is the simplest and most accurate method of evaluating the individual's state of health today. If at the same time healthy functions are restored, making use of the indicated pharmaceutical treatment where necessary, we have in our possession an extremely powerful weapon in the fight against autoimmune diseases.

2. The patient can be made to locate and manage the stress factors hiding in the background. This aspect is most often ignored. In the majority of cases autoimmune diseases are accompanied by a severe emotional drop which feeds back into the disease, making things worse.    

alterations on the biochemical level and stress stemming from the modern environment are the culprits behind the explosion of autoimmune diseases. A gradual restoration of natural condition can stop deterioration and lead to steady improvement.

The human body is genetically programed to be healthy; it is medicine's duty, and ours as well, to assist it in its effort. Recently gained scientific knowledge gives us the possibility and also the responsibility to further the work of nature.
