As autoimmune diseases are on the rise for the last decade, it is import to find the right treatment. It is not easy because even scientists still don’t have definite answers about a lot of aspects. What new research suggests is that the secret might lie in the gut.
This new research provides the support to understanding why diet changes are so important. In my experience even changing food just a bit can make a big change for numerous conditions or pre-condition stages even such serious autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, etc. In the previous article about the lies about autoimmune diseases you could read about the process of how the body attacks itself, but there is more detailed research about the possible autoimmune disease causes.
What alters gut microbiota?
- High-fat diet
- Environment (e.g., if it is clean or polluted)
New research shows profs that “good” and also “bad” bacteria that is in the intestinal tract can have a much higher role than one might think. One of the research shows how intestinal microflora is linked to autism in children. Another study shows bacteria influence on the main neurotransmitter that means that it can influence the way a person feels, thinks, behaves, and neurological conditions. Changes in the overall bacteria in the gut changes inflammation that can be one of the autoimmune disease causes. One of the leading authors of the study Dr Yuying Liu told that “Beneficial gut bacteria promote immune homeostasis, which means that resident gut bacteria have beneficial nutritional effects and the effect of reducing autoimmunity and inflammation.” His research with other colleagues showed that “good” bacteria also called probiotics and help to restart the whole gut bacteria and thus also reduce or eliminate inflammation.
Where can you find “good” bacteria?
- Probiotic supplements (e.g., Balance ProBi-Plus 100)
- Fermented foods (yogurt, kefir, etc.)
For autoimmune disease treatment or prevention, it is important to choose the right approach. You cannot do that without help from a professional nutrition specialist or some other specialist that has a specialization in autoimmune diseases. Additional dietary and lifestyle changes are also crucial especially when medical and other treatments are not successful. The immune system is very important not only for avoiding autoimmune diseases. Further research can help to discover new autoimmune disease treatment options exactly for the immune system. There are further autoimmune secrets for discovery in the upcoming years.
