The Autoimmune Epidemic — 2 Comments

  1. IT is completely staggering abut those statistics – my family has fallen foul to the auto immunity plague. I have psioasratic arthritis – my late brother who died had Fibro Myalgia – my ex partner she has fybro and my son has dysfunctional thyroid and vitiligo due to auto immunity dysfunction. How can we help are immune system when we are continuously exposed to toxins in the modern world – something to bolster the immunity and nervous system ability to communicate internally better – I’ve known about auto immune disorders since before my brother died in 2003 – so some 15 or more years but still the medical community has no clue how to deal with these illnesses and just throw painkillers at patients – which often can be lethal or cause more complications.

    What can we do to help ourselves. My illness is getting worse. I have no access to private health care so reliant on a system that is still so uneducated in handling this debilitating illness.

  2. James, I’m so sorry to hear about all of these tragedies in your family. Autoimmune diseases are so terrible to contend with. I also share your frustrations (to put it mildly) with the American health care system–it often gets in the way of good care. I don’t have many answers for you, but have you heard of the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA)? This would be a good general resource for you and your family. All the best to you.
