Today’s focus: Autoimmune Disease

For personal reasons, I’ve been moved to write and focus on this all too familiar health problem for many more individuals than we can imagine. The American Autoimmune Related Disorders Association (AARD) says “The National Institutes of Health (NIH estimates up to 23.5* million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease and that the prevalence is rising. We at AARDA say that 50 million* Americans suffer from autoimmune disease.”

WebMD says:  Immune system disorders cause abnormally low activity or over activity of the immune system. In cases of immune system over activity, the body attacks and damages its own tissues (autoimmune diseases). Immune deficiency diseases decrease the body’s ability to fight invaders, causing vulnerability to infections.

Autoimmune disorders include: Rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus, Diabetes Type 1, Inflammatory bowel disease, Multiple sclerosis, just to name a few. The symptoms range from joint pain due to inflammation, attack and damage to tissue (muscles or nerves) and even altered growth and function of organs.

The typical treatments include: injection or oral medications like steroids, pain medication, and immune suppressant medication. For some this is effective. Yet, for others it doesn’t work as well plus they also have to deal with various side effects from these medication.

What do you do?

Most feel they have to choose the lesser of both evils and go for the pharmaceuticals. Medications for the most part deal with the symptoms and not the cause of the problems. As per the definition  by WebMD, Autoimmune disease is the product of an immune system that cannot regulate itself. So, the best treatment for this should be to regulate it: Right? There are 2 popular approahes to this.

Suppressing the immune system:

Pharmaceuticals used to suppress the immune system is an attempt to do just that. However, in doing so we could suppress it too much and then risk being more susceptible to bacteria and viral infections. For organ transplant recipients suppressing the immune system is a must.  But this is not the case with for individuals with autoimmune disease.

Boosting the immune system:

For those that suffer from an under active immune system boosting the immune system is crucial in order to improve their quality of life. It can determine whether they can perform their daily routines or survive a life threating attack to a vital organ.

If regulating the immune system is the what we’re looking for.  How can we possibly do that without all the side effects and precautions?

Let me tell you of the most excellent way:  Using 4Life Transfer Factor

Transfer Factor:  it’s a molecule or protein that was discovered in 1949 by Henry Sherwood Lawrence, an American immunologist. This molecule found in the colostrum (first secretion of the mammary gland, rich in antibodies) helps balance the immune system by recognizing, responding and remembering threatening agents that enter our bodies. The best part of this is that it’s accessible to everyone.

No prescription needed. It has NO side effects, NO contraindications,

NO toxicity, and NO precautions.

We at The Main Salon want only the best for you….
