Autoimmune diseases

DZIP, metabolic disorder, autoimmune disease, thyroid disease

Autoimmune diseases are chronic inflammatory processes. Worldwide, there are currently approx. 5 – 8 % of the population is affected by about 80 – 100 different autoimmune diseases.

In a normal state, the immune system protects the human body from viruses, bacteria, parasites or other foreign substances. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system can no longer distinguish between “foreign” and “self” (auto) and thus fights healthy, endogenous structures.

If left untreated, an autoimmune disease can lead to the destruction of the affected organ due to the inflammatory reactions. Timely diagnosis and appropriate therapy is therefore extremely important.

A distinction can be made between organ-related and systemic autoimmune diseases.

Organic autoimmune diseases:

  • multiple sclerosis
  • Diabetes mellitus type 1
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Pemphigus vulgaris
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • Graves’ disease
  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

Systemic autoimmune diseases:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus erythematosus
  • Polymyositis
  • Sjogren’s syndrome
  • Scleroderma
  • Systemic vasculitides
  • Graves’ disease
  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

Symptoms

Since there are more than 60 different individual diseases, the symptoms are as varied as the diseases themselves.

Causes

The search for the causes of autoimmune diseases is in full swing in all industrialized countries. The large number of different diseases, as well as the associated number of clinical pictures, suggests a diverse composition of causes. Many signs point in the direction of intestinal germs, which significantly influence the immune system of people. In the course of life, the intestinal flora changes and, depending on the diet, inflammations can be triggered.

Certain autoimmune diseases occur more frequently in women in particular. According to the current state of medical research, it is assumed that this is related to the female sex hormones. Researchers are working hard to find the connections between these diseases.

However, stress and other strains on our nervous system also have an influence on the outbreak of an autoimmune disease.

Therapy

We understand autoimmune diseases as a disturbed balance in the immune system. Therefore, our measures are aimed at balancing the disturbed processes. This is how we try to eliminate drivers of this dysregulation such as food allergies or environmental toxins. We use the intestinal immune system as a communication platform by using the intestinal flora as an ally and creating a balancing effect through symbiosis control. There are also possibilities to intervene in case of a genetic disposition.

It is important to have a comprehensive diagnosis that takes into account all influencing factors as far as possible and also intervenes in daily processes that produce stress.

In the treatment we use biological and naturopathic methods in addition to the intestinal symbiosis control and the cause-oriented measures. It goes without saying that we attach importance to a healthy diet, the right amount of exercise and good stress management and integrate these into our strategy.
