Inflammation And Disease

BYB_Inflammation

Majority of diseases are caused by inflammation. Those diseases include hypertension, cancer, diabetes, migraines, hypo/hyperthyroidism and strokes. As the healthcare system is now, we just address symptoms with a pill. Any talk of nutrition is misguided by Big Ag lobbyist who bribe the Congress to give “health” recommendations. Needless to say, there is nothing healthy about their recommendations.

One example of this is the fight between sugar and fat in the 1970’s. Fat lost the lobbyist battle and sugar won. Due to this, it was recommended that we eat a low fat diet for weight loss and health. In turn, HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) was created and added to nearly everything in the grocery aisles. One effect of this was that our farmlands have disintegrated; reducing our soil to dust because of the over planting of corn. The other effect was in our health.

We were told that fat increases cholesterol in our bodies and causes heart disease. However, the cholesterol in animal fat does not translate to cholesterol in our bodies. Our bodies makes our own cholesterol. Since sugar won out over fat, the incidence of heart disease and other illnesses have increased twenty percent. Sugar and other toxins in our food are the culprits.

Our guts are the homes of our immune systems, which controls our physical and mental health. The sugar causes the inflammatory cascade which damages tissues. It is much like a nasty case of itching poison ivy inside your vessels and organs: red, irritated and swollen.This damage leads to autoimmune disorders (the diseases listed above); basically you cause your body to fight itself by what you put in your mouth.

Add to this, the fat we were told to avoid, is exactly the thing we need to reduce inflammation of natural stress. Yes, of course, it is not just any fat, but unsaturated, polyunsaturated, monounsaturated and omega 3’s. Eliminate trans fats and omega 6’s.

The damage increases when we do not sleep properly, fail to take time to relax, do not balance our work/play and forget our spirituality. We must take a holistic approach to regain our health; beginning with  feeding our bodies with more nutrient dense, low sugar, low toxin food.

Here is a list of autoimmune diseases and how it is triggered. This list is from Dr. Mercola’s website and you can visit his page by clicking on to the list. The author of this list is from Dr. Marquis.

Disease Mechanism
Allergy 4 Immune Mediated Types + Sensitivities, all of which cause inflammation
Alzheimer’s Chronic inflammation destroys brain cells
Anemia Inflammatory cytokines attack erythropoietin production
Ankylosing Spondylitis Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against joint surfaces
Asthma Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against airway lining
Autism Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions in the brain arresting right hemisphere development
Arthritis Inflammatory cytokines destroy joint cartilage and synovial fluid
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Chronic inflammation causes excessive muscle tension shortening tendons in the forearm and wrist compressing the nerves.
Celiac Chronic immune mediated inflammation damages intestinal lining
Crohn’s Disease Chronic immune mediated inflammation damages intestinal lining
Congestive heart failure Chronic inflammation contributes to heart muscle wasting
Eczema Chronic inflammation of the gut and liver with poor detoxification and often antibodies against Transglutaminase-3.
Fibromyalgia Inflamed connective tissue often food allergy related and exacerbated by secondary nutritional and neurological imbalances.
Fibrosis Inflammatory cytokines attack traumatized tissue
Gall Bladder Disease Inflammation of the bile duct or excess cholesterol produced in response to gut inflammation
GERD Inflammation of the esophagus and digestive tract nearly always food sensitivity and pH driven
Guillain-Barre Autoimmune attack of the nervous system often triggered by autoimmune response to external stressors such as vaccinations.
Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Autoimmune reaction originating in the gut triggered by antibodies against thyroid enzymes and proteins
Heart attack Chronic inflammation contributes to coronary atherosclerosis
Kidney failure Inflammatory cytokines restrict circulation and damage nephrons and tubules in the kidneys
Lupus Inflammatory cytokines induce an autoimmune attack against connective tissue
Multiple Sclerosis Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against myelin
Neuropathy Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against myelin and vascular and connective tissues which irritate nerves.
Pancreatitis Inflammatory cytokines induce pancreatic cell injury
Psoriasis Chronic inflammation of the gut and liver with poor detoxification
Polymyalgia Rheumatica Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against muscles and connective tissue
Rheumatoid Arthritis Inflammatory cytokines induce autoimmune reactions against joints
Scleroderma Inflammatory cytokines induce an autoimmune attack against connective tissue
Stroke Chronic inflammation promoted thromboembolic events
Surgical complications Inflammatory cytokines (often pre-dating the surgery) slow or prevent healing
