Keep it Real TV Episode 12
Video by Dr. Chad Larson
In episode 12 of his video series, Dr. Larson discusses:
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
