For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139: 13-14
Our bodies are wonderfully made. Our bodies grow from tiny group of cells, a perfect combination of chromosomes into living, breathing, creating, thinking, walking, talking, disease fighting machines.
A whole maintenance system is installed. Fueling. Building. Defending. The defense if our immune system It is amazing how it works. Attacking and demolishing foriegn attack from germs, and pollens and outside poisons. Knowing what to keep out and what to keep in. Perfectly made.
Our immune system is perfect, it keeps us well. Sometimes though, the immune system gets ‘confused’ and starts to attack it’s own body. Still doing what it was created to do, destroy what it ‘considers’ damaging to the body. This happens first with allergies Which is actually an immune over reaction. The next response, more serious is is an autoimmune reaction.
So why does this happen? Why does the immune system all of the sudden decide grass is an evil invader and start Star Wars attack on it? Why does the body body turn from having watery eyes and hives as an allergic reaction to shutting down the digestion of wheat gluten and ‘having’ an autoimmune disease? I don’t know! THEY don’t know. They can tell you the results of, but not the exact ‘WHY. But it does happen, it is happening, to EVERYONE.
Understanding it is happening, and what to do about it is the CURE. Our immune systems are doing their job, and will attack anything it deems as BAD. Our job is to know what is BAD and keep the BAD out!.
Autoimmune disease sounds ominous. Sounds rare. Sounds like HIV /AID’s , which not everyone ‘gets’ right? Actually, no. HIV AIDS is started with a virus, which causes the the immune system to fail. Auto immune disease is caused by something( ie. wheat gluten,) entering the body, something that it cannot dispose of. The immune system can not destroy/dispose/digest this something because it is not suppose to be injested. It was never intended to be ingested in huge quanities by man, just like arsenic,a poison. The immune system does all it can to destroy gluten, which is undestroyable, and when it can’t ‘kill’ the enemy it starts to attack everything the ‘enemy’
So who could have an auto immune disease? I think it easier to say who does not have an auto immune disease.
Look at these diseases. Think about them being caused by the body reacting to someTHING that has entered the body. Consider the someTHING could be wheat gluten.
Myself and my family have all suffered through many many symptoms of auto immune diseases. Received medications, treatment,that did not heal. By removing wheat /gluten we have removed these symptoms:joint pain/arthritis, allergies, rashes, blistering of skin, mouth ulcers, migraines, asthma,tinnitus, thrombosis, fevers of no origin, blood vessel inflamation, numbness, weakness, paralysis, eye twitches, IBS, thyrioditis, vertigo, malabsorption of vitamins and minerals, vision changes, insomnia– All of these symptoms can be attached to an auto immune disease -If we add wheat back in the diet, and almost all of us have, the ‘disease’ come back.
We can be disease free, IF we are gluten free.
