Autoimmunity in Denver, CO.
How It Starts
Autoimmunity occurs when the immune system begins to attack our own tissues. This occurs from many different mechanisms that include food protein triggers, hormone imbalances, chemical triggers, microbial triggers, excess immune activation, excess barrier permeability and low regulatory cell production. Adding to this list are lifestyle issues such as poor sleep habits, stress, lack of exercise and a diet high in processed foods.
For many people, but not all, there seems to be a trifecta that lends to the slippery slope eventually leading into an autoimmune reactive response and those are:
1. Lifestyle or Genetics that predispose someone to immune dysregulation
2. Gut-Immune Axis regulatory dysfunction
3. A triggering life event
