Autoimmune diseases symptoms

We’ve all heard how a natural approach to food is the best. We know that we shouldn’t eat high fructose corn syrup. We’ve all wondered if we should be buying free range chicken eggs. We’ve visited local farmer markets to pick up local produce. We understand that there needs to be a natural approach when it comes to our food. But what about a natural approach to our medicine? While a conventional medical approach has been working miracles for the past 50 years, we have lost a little of our magic for healing our bodies, not just treating the illness.

Guest article by Dr. Jake Schmutz, NMD.

There are many natural and alternative approaches to illnesses and autoimmune diseases that, unfortunately, are not used nowadays. Healing our whole bodies is so much more complicated than just eliminating the symptoms of a disease.

To explain the alternative approach to autoimmune diseases completely, an understanding of two philosophical models needs to be explained. These two philosophical models are naturopathy and allopathy. Most Integrative and alternative physicians follow the model of naturopathy, which identifies a disease and works with the healing mechanisms of the body to bring about a cure. Its main focus is to identify the cause of the disease and stimulate the bodies’ own healing mechanisms to eliminate the disease. The philosophical model that most conventional doctors follow is allopathy. This model treats a disease through identifying a disease’s pathology and uses treatments like drugs or surgery to suppress the symptoms of the disease. If the symptoms of the disease are eliminated the disease is cured according to the allopathic model.

A physician that specializes in integrative and alternative medicine would treat autoimmune disease first by looking for the causes of the autoimmune disease. The main causes of autoimmune disease are food sensitivities, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, oxidative stress, hormonal imbalance, increased intestinal permeability, heavy metal toxicity and chemical sensitivity, and Chronic Infectious Diseases. To do this an integrative physician would take a thorough history and order laboratory tests to identify the cause of the autoimmune disease.

Thanks for your words of understanding and encouragement. It's all we've got, eachother. It helps to be able to comprehend others' pain and so I want to you know, you're not alone.
There are so many new autoimmune diseases out there. I think we are poisoned in so many ways and our bodies don't know how to react.
I am silly when I get up too some days. I literally pat myself on the chest, while I am still lying there, and say, "Come on, let's get up. I'll go with you, haha!"

Celiac disease

by PunK--1971

All or most bowel or intestinal disorders can be similar to Celiac Disease and can manifest with symptoms of severe diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and weight loss, to name a few. Symptoms of celiac disease can vary with each individual. Celiac Disease can also present with few symptoms and can be associated with autoimmune diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis, anemia, osteoporosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, and infertility. Many intestinal diseases mimic celiac disease, such as the intestinal disorder group of inflammatory bowel disease, which includes intestinal illnesses as colitis, Crohn's disease, and proctitis

Before saying stupid things, you would find that true CFS is none of the things you described.
Trust me, I've been following a neurologist for years who is studying the illness.
Those who are correctly diagnosed with CFS are sincerely suffering. Their fatigue, pain, and flu-like symptoms are on the level of some advanced cancer, MS, RA, and other autoimmune diseases.
There are also certain biological markers that come up in subsets of the CFS population. It's all very confusing and doctors are scrambling to figure out the pattern. but there is no doubt by researchers that the symptoms are quite real
