Keep it Real TV Episode 12

Video by Dr. Chad Larson

In episode 12 of his video series, Dr. Larson discusses: 

  • Autoimmunity
  • Most rheumatologists focus on prescription medications to treat autoimmunity
  • Often times doctors just focus on the symptoms
  • The temptation is to use prescription medication to suppress symptoms
  • A recent study challenged the current paradigm of autoimmunity
  • Autoimmune conditions include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, & Multiple Sclerosis
  • Genetics only account for about a third of risk factor for autoimmunity
  • Environmental triggers account for another third
  • Environmental triggers could include dietary proteins, dairy, egg, and other foods
  • In celiac disease, for example, the trigger is gluten
  • Pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, molds can be a trigger
  • Intestinal permeability accounts for another third
  • There is a barrier system in your gut that keeps things from getting into your circulation
  • BPAs can play a role in autoimmunity
  • Speak to your doctor about an evaluation for environmental triggers
  • Evaluate yourself for "leaky gut", A.K.A. intestinal permeability
