Could the food we eat and the air we breathe be damaging our immune systems? The number of people with autoimmune diseases, from rheumatoid arthritis to type 1 diabetes, began to increase around 40 years ago in the west. Now, some are also emerging in countries that had never seen the diseases before. Ian Sample speaks to genetic scientist and consultant gastroenterologist James Lee about how this points to what western lifestyles might be doing to our health, and how genetics could reveal exactly how our immune systems are malfunctioning.

I have always been an avid health guru and focused so much on preventative care. I live a pretty active lifestyle, and love running and being outdoors. I currently live in Detroit, MI with my husband and 2 girls. From a young age, I always had a passion for natural healing and preventative care. After obtaining a Doctorate in Pharmacy, this passion became an obsession as my learnings conflicted with my core beliefs. While I maintained what I thought was a healthy lifestyle, my world came to a crashing halt in 2015 when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. I couldn't understand why I had developed an autoimmune disease. I started to question, why people develop Autoimmune disorders and why is it that the human body fights itself? After doing my own research, I discovered there was not a concrete answer to any of her questions, but that nutrition plays a critical role. This is something that was never taught to me in conventional medical training. For this reason, I embarked on a journey to gain knowledge in the field of Functional Medicine and Human Nutrition. Through this path, Dr.AutoimmuneGirl was born. A blog with a mission to identify the root cause of disease through health and wellness, and create the balance between nutrition and medicine. Through functional medicine autoimmunegirl focuses on the underlying causes of autoimmune disease and the impact inflammation and gut health have on autoimmune disease management. As a health and wellness professional autoimmunegirl is on a mission to help you get to the root cause of autoimmune disease through education, empowerment, and support.

In this episode we will discuss Myasthenia Gravis, an Autoimmune Disease affecting the neuromuscular system of the body with Tasha White.  We spoke with Tasha a few years back and wanted to touch base and see how she is doing in the midst of the pandemic. Tasha White, Director of a new Non-profit organization called "My Walk with MG" located in St. Louis, MO.   The CDC has announced authorization of an additional COVID-19 vaccine dose for people with compromised immune systems, including patients with myasthenia gravis (MG) taking immunosuppressive treatment(s). This recommendation is specifically for patients that completed the mRNA vaccines (Moderna and Pfizer).  The recommendation does not apply to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because available data are insufficient at this time. Recent data suggests that patients with weakened immune systems, such as those on immune suppressing medication(s), may have a reduced protective immune response to the COVID-19 vaccine. An additional vaccine dose can increase the immune response to the vaccine. Although similar data specifically for patients with MG is lacking, given the currently available information, the widespread increase in the more contagious and severe delta variant, and the good safety profile of available SARS-coV2 vaccines, the potential benefit of the additional vaccine outweigh the risks.  Therefore, the MGFA supports the CDC authorization of SARS-coV2 vaccines for patients with compromised immune systems and recommends that patients with MG taking immunosuppressives discuss getting an additional mRNA vaccine dose with their treating provider.  SARS-coV2 vaccines may not be available in all areas. The MGFA continues to strongly support the use of recommended precautions to reduce the risk of getting a COVID infection (e.g., masking, social distancing, frequent handwashing, avoiding close interactions with non-immunized individuals, etc). **Regardless of whether you are vaccinated, if you get a COVID infection, it is very important to immediately notify your treating provider(s), including your MG provider, to determine whether there should be changes to your treatment, such as a monoclonal antibody treatment. We continue to recommend that you reference the CDC site. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/covid-19-vaccines-us.html

By the time he was 42, Dr. Tom started to have vision problems. Tom had a cataract. An asymmetrical cataract in a 42-year-old guy is unusual. After doing some research, Dr. Tom saw that lead poisoning could trigger his health issues. When Dr. Tom tested himself for lead poisoning, he had the highest levels of lead that he had ever seen. Tom grew up one block from the Ford assembly line with no government regulations for heavy metal filtration. He was sucking in a lot of lead as a kid.  [16:30] Five Pillars That Contribute To Chronic Disease Intestinal permeability is a Zonulin modulated mechanism. When you have too much Zonulin being secreted, your cells are open too much, too frequently, and too large. All disease begins in the leaky gut. There are five mechanisms that create the perfect storm in developing chronic inflammatory diseases: Genetics Environmental Triggers The impact of the environmental triggers on the microbiome in your gut Leaky gut Systemic inflammation in the body [37:25] You Have 10 Times More Bacteria In The Gut Than All The Cells In The Human Body A teaspoon of poop has more bacteria than all the stars in the known universe. Every forkful of what you put in your mouth will feed good bacteria or bad bacteria. It will take months and months and months to change the environment of your microbiome. Taking a capsule of probiotics each day will not fix your gut. [40:20] Most Bacteria In Your Gut Have 100 To 150 More Genes Than The Entire Human Genome Are we really humans with a whole lot of bacteria? Or are we bacteria having a human experience? Genes determine function; every scientist knows that. The genes that get activated stimulate the production of the proteins that determine action. Is bacteria running the ship, or are genes running the ship? [42:10] 36% of All The Molecules In Your Bloodstream Are The Metabolites From The Gut Bacteria produce exhaust; that exhaust is called the metabolites. Those metabolites get into your bloodstream. 36% of all the small molecules in your bloodstream are the metabolites of the microbiome. The more bacteria you have, the stronger the message. Whenever you have brain dysfunction, you need to fix the gut. Remember, all disease begins in the gut. [51:40] The Autoimmune Disease Solution They're Not Telling You Tom interviewed 85 different people who are the world leaders in autoimmune diseases. If you choose to do vaccines, you should give your children one at a time. You should never give children six vaccines at once. With multiple vaccines, there will be an inflammatory response.

Hello! Ahhh here we are, the last interview for the season, and the year!Today's guest is the amazing Allira Potter who has been a Yours Only user for some time. When she was 17, her mum was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and little patches started to form. When she passed away, the autoimmune condition came in full force and with psoriasis, comes psoriatic arthritis. Psoriatic arthritis affects approx 15% of people with psoriasis. This particular arthritis can affect any joint in the body, and symptoms vary from person to person. Research has shown that persistent inflammation from psoriatic arthritis can lead to joint damage. Allira speaks very openly about her experience with trauma and how she is managing her health day to day. She is a real advocate for self awareness, and manifesting the life you want. For more information on psoriatic arthritis: https://arthritisaustralia.com.au/types-of-arthritis/psoriatic-arthritis/

Do you struggle with being sensitive? Do you feel too much too quickly?  No question, being over-sensitive can be a challenge. Highly sensitive people sponge emotions – their own and those of others - making them feel easily wired and overwhelmed. There seems to be not enough time or energy to process the feelings and sensations, which can lead eventually to emotional exhaustions and physical problems. On top of it, sensitive people often feel “different” and isolated from the rest of the world.  Generally speaking, our society has little room and patience for feelings. Logic and toughness are far more accepted than emotions and sensitivity. Being highly sensitive is considered a flaw and weakness, with very little “competitive” value. …so what can you do? Suppress your sensitivity or pretend that you are unaffected by it? The fact is that sensitivity is a strength, which when you learn how to control and utilize it can lead to greater self-awareness, success and fulfillment.  Listen to this Get Real interview with self-empowerment expert Dr. Friedemann Schaub and special guest and health coach Courtney Marchesani to learn the keys on how to access and work with your power of sensitivity.  Dr Friedemann's Takeaways: Intro (00:00) Feeling Uncomfortable (3:24) Traumatic Experiences (5:28) Sensitivity Is Healing (12:02) Autoimmune Disease (19:07) A Good Guide (23:07) Might Be More OCD Related (24:30) I Saw The Overlap (30:54) How To Detach (35:33) Meet Courtney - Courtney Marchesani, M.S., Clinical Health Coach of Inspired Potentials, is an integrative mental health and wellness educator.

If You Want To Want To Avoid Autoimmune Disease, You Should: Listen to your symptoms, advocate for yourself, and ask for more testing Calm your inflammation by focusing on gut health, nutrition, and lifestyle  Implement breathwork and meditation to live a more balanced life   The prevalence of autoimmune disorders in the past 50 years has risen so drastically that autoimmune disease is now the 3rd most common category of health issues in the United States. So what is causing so many Americans to develop these conditions? While many factors contribute to your overall health, food and gut health are the foundation for a working immune system.   Finding a Balance with Donna Mazzola Dr. Donna Mazzola is a Pharmacist with a Master's degree in Functional Medicine and Human Nutrition. After obtaining her Doctorate in Pharmacy, Donna realized that it is only by finding a balance between medicine and nutrition that we can impact disease. After receiving her Hashimotos diagnosis in 2015, she created her blog Dr. Autoimmune Girl to help others identify the root causes of their diseases and take back control of their health.   Understanding the Why Understanding the ‘why' behind your autoimmune condition can be a frustrating journey. The greatest challenge that people suffer from is the unexplained symptoms that can go unanswered for years before receiving a diagnosis.  Donna knows that in order to better control what is happening in your body, you have to understand it better. By asking the right questions, learning how to decipher our labs, and advocating for ourselves, we can delay the progression of symptoms and take back control of your autoimmune disease rather than letting the disease control you.   Heal Your Gut to Heal Your Condition Autoimmune conditions are proven to be the gateway to other illnesses down the line, which is why it is so important to be mindful of your symptoms and address your autoimmune condition as soon as possible. The majority of us live in a chronic inflammatory state without realizing it, and a gut protocol will always be your best friend when finding healing.  Whether you have an autoimmune disease or not, starting with your gut is key if you have unexplained symptoms. Focusing on your gut health has many side benefits when it comes to not only autoimmunity but your overall health and longevity. While you may not like to hear it, it is time to identify your drivers of inflammation in order to heal your autoimmunity and find the balance you are missing. Are you ready to get to the root cause of your autoimmune condition, alleviate your symptoms, and find real balance and healing? Share your biggest takeaway from this episode with me in the comments section of the episode page.   Quotes: “It is so important that we raise awareness of autoimmunity. We talk about the pandemic going on, but I look at autoimmune disease as the other pandemic that is going on that nobody is talking about.” (5:32) “Empowering yourself to understand these things and understand how these things are connected will allow you to ask the right questions.” (17:45) “When we start talking about how to mitigate that, it's focusing on those triggers; it's identifying what those triggers are, and removing them, mitigating it, and recognizing how your body responds when it is exposed to it. So for me, it is all about being in tune with your body.” (24:01) “Control what you can control, and provide your body with what it needs so that it can control the rest.” (28:04) “If you are able to overhaul your diet and recognize the nutrients you can get from whole foods; you are nourishing your body to function at a cellular level where it needs to be.” (44:23)   In This Episode The importance of understanding the ‘why' when it comes to what an autoimmune disease truly is (9:10) How Covid-19 could be affecting your likelihood of triggering an autoimmune disease (19:33) The role of inflammation when dealing with your immune system symptoms (21:29) Understanding the spectrum of autoimmunity and how food can help put you in remission (31:40) What you should be focusing on if you want to shift away from the ‘Standard American Lifestyle' and the diseases that come with it (37:46)   Resources Mentioned: Use Promo Code drmariza to get 15% Off Your Paleovalley Order Get Donna's new book The Immunity Food Fix here!

Elizabeth's education, life experience, drive and entrepreneurial spirit proved to be the very thing that saved the life of both herself and her son after they were diagnosed with rare and very serious autoimmune diseases.    In 2008, Elizabeth's son came down with a case of strep throat, after receiving antibiotics he seemed to be feeling better, but then his behavior became erratic.  After consulting numerous doctors, specialists and undergoing multiple tests, Elizabeth's son was diagnosed with Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS) and he was prescribed psychiatric medication and they were sent on their way. Her son got worse. He began having uncontrollable compulsions and ended up in a juvenile detention center.  His psychiatric symptoms were replacing his physical symptoms and Elizabeth realized that her son's immune system was misfiring.  Around the same time, Elizabeth was diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome, experienced hair loss, limb numbness and more. Elizabeth decided to take matters into her own hands, quit her job and dedicated her life to finding the real root of her son's health issues.  She discovered that both herself and her son were infected by a bacteria called Mycoplasma Pneumonia and was able to follow a treatment plan to finally solve their health issues.

I invited her back onto the podcast today to talk about vaccines. This is a topic many of you requested when the vaccines first became available in early 2021. At that time, there was no data on people with autoimmune disease because we weren't included in the initial research studies. Now, enough people have been vaccinated that the data is available, and we'll be sharing it with you today.

They include type 1 diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, colitis, Crohn's disease, and dozens of others. While your body is designed to fight off harmful things like infections, toxins, allergens, or a stress response, with autoimmune issues the body directs a hostile attack on its own joints, brain, skin, and more.In this episode, Dr. Hyman speaks with Dr. Cynthia Li and Dr. Terry Wahls about their personal stories of working through autoimmunity and how it led them to help others using Functional Medicine. They also dive into the underlying triggers of inflammation such as stress, hidden infections, food allergies or sensitivities, toxic exposure, genetic predisposition, nutrient deficiencies, and leaky gut. Dr. Cynthia Li received her medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. She's practiced as an internist in many settings, including Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, San Francisco General Hospital, and St. Anthony Medical Clinic serving the homeless.
