Autoimmune diseases are conditions in which the body turns on its own tissues and organs and starts destroying them.
But why does the body allow this in the first place? What triggered the immune system to attack its own tissues instead of protecting them?
The mainstream explanation is that the reason the body does this is not known and that there are no cures. This is not what we believe. Everything has a cause and knowing the cause is knowing half the cure.
Toxins And Their Roles In Autoimmune Diseases
There are many factors that contribute to autoimmune diseases but they can be summarized into one thing called TOXINS.
Toxins are the root causes of autoimmune diseases and we are swimming in a sea of toxins today.
We get toxins from:
- What we eat (unnatural food additives, pesticides, herbicides, etc.)
- The utensils we cook with and eat in (Aluminium pots, plastic plates, and cups, etc.)
- What we rub on our bodies (Unnatural skincare products)
- What we wash our clothes with (Synthetic chemicals that get absorbed through the skin pores)
- The contaminated air we breathe in
- Drugs and vaccines. And even some herbal products not well prepared can be contaminated with heavy metals.
God in his infinite wisdom made the body in a marvelous way. He knew we would live in a sea of toxins and he put in-built systems to effectively handle these toxins for us.
The toxin-handling systems of the body are the immune system and the detoxification pathways.
When something goes wrong with our detoxification pathways, the door opens for autoimmune diseases to come in.
2 Unknown Causes Of Autoimmune Diseases
1. Faulty detoxification pathways
The main job of our organs of detoxification is to handle non-living toxins. These include all the chemicals mentioned above and many more.
Your detoxification organs are your liver, colon, kidneys, skin, and lymphatic system. Their job is to remove non-living toxins from the body in a safe way.
When their functions are impaired due to:
They are no longer capable of removing toxins from your body. The toxins begin to circulate in your bloodstream causing symptoms like headaches, fatigue, skin problems, etc.
In a bid to save you, (the body is designed to protect itself no matter what), your body hides these toxins in your fat cells (like the breast, thyroid, prostate, etc.) so they don’t continue circulating and cause problems in your body.
These toxins remain “imprisoned” in the fat cells until you help your body heal your detox organs so that they can safely eliminate them.
With this tactic, your body can hide toxins for years and even decades. If you continue eating wrong and unnatural foods and live an unhealthy lifestyle, your body won’t have any space to remove the toxins.
When the body discovers that it can’t remove these toxins safely, it will add them to the fats they are hiding in and create vital molecules. Hope you know that your body uses fats to build vital molecules needed for optimal wellness.
When this happens, the molecules will no longer be healthy ones that can resist diseases. They will be sick molecules that trigger autoimmune conditions like diabetes, neurological meltdown, hypertension, atherosclerosis, cancer, arthritis, etc.
This is why unexplained weight gain precede most autoimmune conditions. Excess weight is an invitation to diseases while losing it invites good health.
Don’t allow your body use wrong materials to create your fundamental units of life because they won’t function well and you will start having symptoms that disturb your consciousness.
This is one cause of autoimmune diseases.
2. The immune system crossing its line
Remember that I established above that the detoxification system handles non-living toxins. The immune system is the one responsible for living toxins like bacteria, fungi, and other pathogens.
Your immune system’s work is to kill and we all know that only living things die. This is why your immune system can effectively handle pathogens without creating a scene like autoimmune diseases.
However, non-living toxins like BPA, dioxin, chloride, fluoride, or heavy metals like arsenic, lead, or mercury cannot be killed.
So when these toxins are hiding in your fat cells and your immune system finds them, it turns on them and starts attacking them and even creates antibodies for these non-living things that now destroy your tissues or organs.
And remember, these toxins have already been joined to your fat cells and used to make molecules.
And since your immune system is not designed to handle non-living things, it causes what I call “collateral damages” when doing so. Heavy metals or chemicals cannot die, so your body will be destroyed in the process of your immune system fighting a futile battle.
One amazing thing about our body is that it is designed to overcome. Your immune system will never rest until it achieves victory, it won’t stop until it kills. But the sad truth is that toxins don’t die.
So what we call autoimmune diseases is actually the immune system trying to kill a non-living thing it shouldn’t have attempted to do so in the first place due to a faulty detoxification system.
