This week, on A Different Perspective, Doc talks about environmental triggers for autoimmune conditions. How do you support the immune response? Doc breaks it down.
- Health is function. If your body is functioning well, you’re healthy. If not, you’re sick.
- Science is your understanding of the world around you. It’s observation.
- The science of medicine changes all the time.
- Both the fireman and the carpenter are good. As long as they stay in their own lane.
- Expert in health
- Expert in trauma
- We’ve never seen only one cause for anything. It’s always compounded factors.
- The immune system is pac-man. Did anything change in him to get him to attack healthy cells? No!
- What are you considering a healthy cell?
- What made it attack this organ, and not every cell in the body?
- There are over 80 autoimmune diseases that affect over 24 million people. They all come down to the same principle.
- If it’s genetic—if it’s in your blueprint—why did you develop it at 40, and not have it the day you were born?
- It’s not a genetic problem
- You didn’t give your body what you needed, so it responded to that
- The actual roles gender/race/socioeconomic aspects play in autoimmune disease
- Vitamin D and how melanin affects sun absorption
- Organic mercury
- You still had to put a stimulus in for the body to respond
- Some genes are overloaded easier than others; it doesn’t mean your genes are your destiny
- The body is protecting you by breaking things down that are dangerous
There is no drug or medicine that supports the body
- Immune system boosters
- The importance of vitamin D
- Omega-3 fatty acids—cod liver oil (vit A)
- Reishi mushroom
- These are all still just a natural compensation for the triggers and stimulus that are leading to the autoimmune diseases in the first place.
- If all you do is take supports and supplements and don’t figure out the triggers, you’ll still be sick in two years
- You need to get tested and find out what’s really going on before you can begin to truly fix anything.
- Vaccination and autoimmune disease: what is the evidence?
- You swerve too hard to one side or the other and you end up in the ditch. The answer is in the middle.
What are environmental triggers?
- How environmental triggers work
- The solution won’t come from the cause.
