One out of every 12 people has one, so chances are good
that either you have one or know someone that does.
Autoimmune diseases can strike virtually any area of the
body and cause extreme pain and discomfort.
Here are examples of autoimmune diseases:
- IBD (inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn's and
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Type 1 diabetes
- Multiple sclerosis
- Lupus (SLE)
- Scleroderma (thickening and hardening of the skin)
- Sjogren's syndrome (chronic dry eyes)
- Graves' disease (overproduction of thyroid hormones)
- Hashimoto's disease (underproduction of thyroid hormones)
- Glomerulonephritis (kidney inflammation that can lead to
- Guillain-Barre' syndrome (weakness, numbness and
Simply put, with autoimmune diseases, your body wages war
Your immune system strikes out against your cells, harming
your tissues and causing loss of normal bodily functioning.
This can happen anywhere in your body--that's why you see
such a variety of conditions listed above.
Autoimmune diseases don't always have a clear pattern of
symptoms, so they can be difficult for doctors to diagnose.
But there is one constant with ALL autoimmune diseases...
This is what's happening:
With autoimmune diseases, your immune system sees a
harmless substance (like your own cells or tissues) and
reacts like it's something dangerous or harmful.
This causes chronic inflammation and other painful
Normally, your immune system's Regulatory T cells should
"shut down" this overzealous immune response and stop the
But with when you have an autoimmune disease like the ones
above, they fail to do their job and the inflammation gets
worse and worse.
Now the typical medical treatment for most autoimmune
diseases is, naturally, prescription medication. But these
offerings from Big Pharma only address the symptoms -- not
the perverse immune system reaction that's taking place.
Plus they have frightening side effects.
For example, a drug commonly prescribed for psoriasis
(Soriatane) can't even be used by pregnant women because it
causes birth defects. So don't get pregnant after you
start taking it, or...
Plus, it can also cause heart attack, stroke, aggressive
feelings and/or suicidal thoughts, numbness and thinning of
A much better approach for autoimmune diseases is to
tackle the culprit that's causing the problem to begin with
-- the immune system.
That's where probiotics may be a big help.
Your immune system's cells (called T cells) are made in
your bone marrow. These T cells will develop into one of 2
types -- a Helper T cell or a Regulatory T cell.
Helper T cells patrol your body like a police officer,
looking for dangerous invaders. Once they detect a real or
perceived threat, they quickly multiply themselves and
Regulatory T cells stop inflammation and keep harmless
Most often the decision of whether a T cell becomes Helper
or Regulatory takes place in your gut.
Probiotics in your gut help to encourage more Regulatory T
cell formation, which means more cells for your body to
naturally fight inflammation.
Plus probiotics help other cells in your intestinal tract
to see normal molecules to be innocent instead of
dangerous. This means fewer allergic responses to harmless
things like foods, pollen, etc.
And ALL of this is great news for people with autoimmune
Unlike dangerous drugs, probiotics can help address the
immune system's mixed-up response to normal tissues and
One of Super Shield's strains, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus,
helps to strengthen your gut-barrier function and has been
shown to have a beneficial impact on autoimmune conditions
as well as constipation, diarrhea and IBS symptoms.
Plus Super Shield's 12 other powerhouse strains will help
keep your gut flora in proper balance, encouraging the
formation of more anti-inflammatory T cells.
PS: Omega-3 essential fatty acids are also a natural anti-
inflammatory. Most people that have a typical diet are
extremely deficient in Omega-3 EFAs, making them
susceptible to inflammation and pain. VitalMega-3 fish oil
supplements can rectify this imbalance for you and fight
inflammation from within. Learn more about VitalMega-3
