Celiac disease
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Multiple Sclerosis
Rheumatoid Arthritis

What do all these disorders have in common? They are all types of autoimmune disorders.

Autoimmune Disorders?

Our bodies are built with an amazing immune system. But what happens when that system gets confused and turns on itself? It begins to attack various areas of the body wreaking havoc. The result is an autoimmune disorder.

What causes autoimmune disorders?

We’ve been talking about one of the leading causes for weeks on ths show…and this week we are bringing back gluten expert, Dr. Tom O’Bryan.

In this show learn:

• Auto-immune Disease is the #1 cause of morbidity and mortality in the Industrialized World.
• The initiation and early development of auto-immune disease requires a triad of factors which includes environmental triggers. The most prevalent and common environmental trigger today is the food we eat.
• How diet and nutrition contribute to the development of auto-immune diseases.

    I found the discussion about gluten and autoimmune disease, very enlightening. What was the name of the book on thyroid disease that he talked about? I couldn’t catch the author’s name. It was something like Denis Carvasian.
