The incidence of autoimmune disease has tripled since the 50s and 60s. Let’s take a look at why that might be.
The immune system works to differentiate our cells and friendly microbes from external pathogens, viruses, and microbes.
Autoimmune diseases are typically caused by inflammation. Intestinal permeability, also known as leaky gut, is one of the most common culprits of autoimmune disease. When you have a leaky gut, food particles can leak out of the small intestine and confuse your immune system.
Chemicals from our environment can lead to inflammation in the gut. Most of the wheat in America is sprayed with glyphosate, which inflames the gut and destroys the microbiome. It also disturbs certain enzymes in the liver involved in detoxification.
If you have gut inflammation, you will have trouble absorbing vitamin D. Vitamin D is the most important vitamin for your immune system. Vitamin D is a powerful anti-inflammatory that helps to prevent autoimmune diseases.
Consumption of ultra-processed foods like seed oils, refined sugars, and refined starches also creates inflammation in your gut. Medications like PPIs can potentially contribute to autoimmune disease. Drug-induced lupus is directly linked to the use of PPIs.
Stress-induced autoimmune disease is very common. Many people experience a stressful event right before they develop an autoimmune disease. Stress activates cortisol, which paralyzes your immune system.
So what’s the solution?
1. Avoid seed oils and grains! Follow a keto diet and consume high-quality animal protein and healthy fats. Cook your vegetables and consume fermented vegetables. If you have bad gut inflammation, try the carnivore diet for a few months.
2. Consume 30,000 to 50,000 IU of vitamin D each day.
3. Consume red meat for L-glutamine or take a supplement.
4. Consume small amounts of colostrum.
