Autoimmune conditions

 

 

Personalized Approach to autoimmune disease

DrEl protocol focuses on balancing Th1/Th2, gut healing, nutrient therapy, and herb extract for autoimmunity and inflammation.

Autoimmune disease is characterized by antibodies attacking own immune system. Many factors have been attributed to imbalance of T –cell  with Th1/Th2 balance and Th17/Treg balance that leads to inflammation. Th1 (T helper cells 1) fight viruses and Th2 up regulates the antibody production. Th17 is implicated in autoimmune inflammation and Treg is inhibitor of inflammation.

Because many nutrients and anti-oxidants are able to support this balance and modulate immunity DrEl prescribes natural medicine. For example, vitamin A upregulates Treg cell and decrease risk of autoimmunity. Through an epidemiological, genetic, and environmental assessment a personalized protocol is created. In certain forms of autoimmunity the optimal levels of vitamin D are absolutely necessary to better function. Correcting the gut dysbiosis and removing the environmental triggers are important steps. Certain microbiome like porphyromonas gingivalis and Proteus Mirabilis is strongly associated with RA and Ankylossing spondylitis is associated with Klebsiella pneumonia. Gut healing with elimination of the overgrowth yeast, fungus, and bacteria are at the base of reducing autoimmunity.

Drug approach: Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) is opiate blocker that has multiple mechanisms of actions which cause the body to increase endogenous endorphins and encephaline production that was found to down regulate the autoimmunity.

Autoimmune conditions like R.A, M.S, psoriasis,Ankylosis Spondylitis are characterized by increased inflammation and botanical medicine (herbs) have an anti inflammatory effect. DrEl protocol includes European herbs extracts and nutrient therapy to modulate inflammation from evidence based herbs for autoimmunity: Vaccinium Vitis-Idea, Ilex Aquifolium, Pinus Montana, Ribes Nigrum, Vitis Vinifera, Amelopsis Veitchii, Cedrus libani,Cercis Siliquastrum, Betula Pubescens, Rubus Fruticosus, Secale Cereale, Ulmus Campestris,
