Like foreclosures and ocean levels, autoimmune disorders are on the rise.  This is not like your bank account being on the rise, or a cake rising in the oven.  Nope, not at all.  This is a very alarming trend. Autoimmune diseases include:

Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, type I diabetes, Multiple Sclerosis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and literally more than 100 other conditions that are purely autoimmune in nature or have an autoimmune component.

Autoimmune diseases don’t get much press, and the primary causes of autoimmunen disease remain shrouded in mystery. This is odd seeing that you are more likely to be diagnosed with one of the many autoimmune diseases than you are to get the diseases we most fear.  This is especially true for women, who are three times more likely to develop autoimmune disease than men.  Think about the pandemic phobia of breast cancer, for example, and the massive industry that surrounds it as if breast cancer were a woman’s greatest threat.  Autoimmune disease strikes nearly nine times as many women in America as breast cancer, and many forms are equally fatal and even more debilitating.

Autoimmune disorders affects millions, and millions, and millions of Americans alone (about 25 million by latest estimates), but the rise in autoimmune disease isn’t just an American phenomenon, the rise is being seen across the world.

“Autoimmune” means self-immune.  Autoimmune diseases are characterized by the immune system turning on itself in attack.  It’s a grave state of hyperreactivity of the immune system.

Although concrete causes of autoimmune disease have yet to be proven,it is suspected that flaws in the immune system and hypersensitivity often begin with something as seemingly-benign as allergies.  But there are more similarities than differences between the underlying phenomena seen in those with allergies as those with autoimmune disease, and allergies are quite often a precursor to the disease. Some research also suggests a correlation between certain autoimmune disorders, like lupus and diet.

Having an autoimmune disease is also associated with giving birth to a child with immune system issues, and is perhaps the greatest familial risk factor for giving birth to an autistic child.

Although environmental toxins, heavy metals, etc all appear to be necessary ingredients in the development of a nice, juicy, autoimmune disease – here it is argued that all forms of immune system impairment exist from a similar root source, are getting worse, and that our species is speeding towards peril if this escalating continuum is not identified, understood, halted, and reversed 180 degrees.

Of course it’s not all doom and gloom.  We have some laughs along the way as life is meant to be enjoyed.  But it is important that you get a fresh perspective on this phenomenon so that you and your family can take action to avoid its perils.  What are deemed “crazy ideas,” such as the concept that this is a multi-generational cumulative illness that is taking place worldwide, and many more insights that will ultimately provide the answers to avoid impending doom are about to be laid down right here.  Don’t miss the unique opportunity to see what it’s all about, by following along closely over the coming months and years, at www.180degreehealth.com.
