Leaving the doctor’s office, I was confronted with the disheartening reality that autoimmune conditions are both common and lifelong. The lack of understanding surrounding their cause and the uncertainty of their recurrence left me perplexed. Determined to unravel this mystery, I embarked on a mission to restore balance within my body.
Amidst a sea of experts promoting diets and supplements as the ultimate solutions for living symptom-free, I remained skeptical. Despite adhering to a strict, unprocessed diet for years, I continued to battle the debilitating effects of autoimmune conditions. It became evident that a scientific approach, delving deeper into the body’s functioning, was necessary, rather than relying solely on lifestyle adjustments. By scientific approach, I do not mean a lifetime of pharmaceuticals, but rather acquiring knowledge of how the body truly operates.
My health journey commenced with exploring my genetics, seeking answers as to why autoimmune issues plagued me since birth and eventually developed into other conditions, including a rare disease as I grew older. This initial step revealed insights about the MTHFR gene’s role in inflammation and folate synthesis blockade, my allergies to prescription drugs and even common medications like Tylenol, and my susceptibility to oxidative stress. Motivated by these discoveries, I delved deeper into the mechanisms of inflammation, oxidative stress, and the consequential free radical damage.
To gain further clarity, I turned to Live Blood Testing, which highlighted a concerning pattern of scrunched-up cells, often associated with cancer cells. The missing piece seemed to be oxygenation, as reintroducing it to my body resulted in noticeable improvements in cell health and overall energy, albeit temporarily.
Seeking expert guidance, I consulted a rheumatologist who uncovered the pathogen profile contributing to my symptoms. This profile included the active state of the Epstein Barr Virus, Mycoplasma Pneumonia, and other triggers of autoimmune conditions. It became evident that numerous aspects of my body’s functionality were imbalanced, encompassing my gut health, sleep patterns, and mental well-being. Taking proactive measures, I underwent potent IV treatments to deactivate the triggering pathogens, embarked on an extensive detoxification journey spanning several years, and utilized stem cells to regenerate my tissues, ultimately experiencing a remarkable revitalization. I also applied various health modalities to my own body, seeking to comprehend the underlying reasons for its unique functioning.
Hormonal imbalances, blood sugar fluctuations, neurological disturbances, gut issues, and a host of other vital bodily functions were entirely out of sync. The key revelation lay in recognizing the detrimental impact of oxidative stress, prompting me to focus on minimizing free radical damage through the use of antioxidants, oxygenation, and other effective methods.
I share this story in the hopes that it imparts a profound understanding of autoimmunity, extending beyond the mere realms of food and lifestyle adjustments. It is a complex and serious matter that demands a comprehensive and scientific approach.
