Part 8: Stop the Epidemic of Autoimmune Disease

functional medicine treeLow grade chronic infections from bacteria, viruses, fungus, parasites, and mycoplasmas have long been suspected as causes for autoimmune diseases. It’s not unusual to have multiple co-infections. All these infections create an inflammatory response. Unfortunately most medical doctors never test for these infectious microorganisms or even recognize these microorganisms are linked to autoimmune diseases even though published medical research has shown there are links. They seem to be content with only treating the symptoms with immune suppressing drugs and anti-inflammatory drugs. Epstein-Bar virus (a herpes virus), and bacterial infections of Yersina entercolitica, Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme disease), and Helicobbacter pylori have all been linked to Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

Mycoplasma infections have been found in over 90% of those diagnosed with RA (rheumatoid arthritis) and mycoplasmas have been found in Guillain-Barre syndrome according to the published medical research. At Restore To Health Naturopathic Clinic and Wellness Center, we offer natural antimicrobial herbal preparations to fight these infections and specialized Functional Medicine lab tests to diagnose these infections. Our goal is to diagnose and treat the root causes of disease and illness rather than just treating the symptoms. This is our final segment on autoimmune diseases.
