Seizure, Brain Fog, Brain Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue. All AUTOIMMUNE confirmed with testing



Inexplicable Symptoms Linked to Autoimmune Disease

Conventional medical practice might be unable to link several seemingly ‘inexplicable’ symptoms to autoimmune diseases. But in many cases, rapid deterioration of health in previously-healthy humans can cause autoimmune diseases.

Sometimes, doctors might become puzzled about what’s going on and tell patients “it’s all in your head”. But in reality, it’s not.

Proper testing and diagnosis of certain symptoms could be enough to identify autoimmune disorders.


Symptoms of Autoimmune Diseases

The most common symptoms of autoimmune diseases include:

- Lethargy (prolonged bouts of fatigue)

- Seizures (intermittent)

- Joint pain

- Swelling in the joints

- Skin disorders

- Brain fog

- Insomnia

- Digestive problems

- Abdominal pains

- Swollen glands


Most of these symptoms could be triggered by engaging in regular activity. People suffering from autoimmune diseases might have to deal with a massive list of symptoms tied to specific conditions too.


Genetic issues or attacks from viruses can also cause an increase in exposure to autoimmune diseases.


Neurological Effects of Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune diseases can cause a ‘flare-up’ – a burning sensation some people experience after a clash of symptoms. The flare-up from autoimmune diseases affects the neurological make-up of patients and causes several awkward symptoms.


Cell damage from autoimmune diseases is a major cause of brain issues experienced by people with symptoms. The body’s immune system can attack healthy tissues and cells in the spinal cord or brain. Such an attack ultimately leads to chronic inflammation and the burning sensation sufferers feel.


Common symptoms linked to neurological flare-ups include swelling, redness, heat and pain. Advanced neurological problems linked to autoimmune diseases include:

- Multiple sclerosis

- Guillain-Barré Syndrome

- Myasthenia Gravis

- Sjorgen’s Disease, etc.


The best way to manage neurological effects of autoimmune diseases involves co-management from experts. A poly-therapy approach and advice from certified neurology expert is crucial to beat these symptoms effectively.


Weight Gain, Fatigue, and Autoimmune Disease

Failure to properly manage autoimmune diseases could lead to a nasty bout of weight gain and prolonged fatigue. Conditions like Type 1 diabetes, hypothyroidism and Celiac disease usually develop after long periods of neglecting symptoms of autoimmune diseases.

A compromised immune system could lead to a rapid accumulation of weight in previously-healthy individuals. Management of the conditions linked to autoimmune diseases is an effective way to solve related weight gain problems.


Tests to Spot Autoimmune Disease

A special Multiple Autoimmune Reactivity Screen (MARS) Test is best suited to locate autoimmune diseases with ease. A properly-conducted MARS test will check for autoimmune diseases against body tissues.


Regular MARS tests will check for these diseases over a pre-determined range. Three result ranges – in range (normal), equivocal (intermediate), and out of range (positive) help identify autoimmune diseases. Readings ahead of the normal range are classified as positive, indicating the presence of an autoimmune disease. Readings in range point to an absence of autoimmune diseases in the tissue of interest.


Floxies and Autoimmune Disease

Floxies (people with antibiotics-related health challenges) also suffer from a range of autoimmune diseases. Seeking expert diagnostic and management of these diseases is vital to living comfortably after being floxed.


Management of Autoimmune Disease

Correct handling of autoimmune diseases doesn’t have a universal template for all people. Some people might experience significant results with some methods while other struggle to get any benefits.


Working out a plan to restore your overall health is easy with a template from tests conducted. Considering results from tests adds more comfort and introduces a method to your overall recovery process.


Abandoning a tailored management plan could lead to tissue degeneration and an increase in symptoms of autoimmune diseases.


Positive Antibodies against Adrenal Glands, Cerebellar, and Collagen

The adrenal glands help our bodies cope with stress and could be affected by autoimmune diseases. Observing positive antibodies against adrenal glands from an array test signifies a breakdown in stress management capacities.


The cerebellum is a part of the brain responsible for controlling balance and movement. Identified antibody attacks on the cerebellum exposes patients to a range of conditions like autism, PCD Syndrome, and so on.


The same goes for collagen – a component of connective tissue abundant in skin, ligaments, tendons, blood vessels, etc. If antibodies appear to attack a human’s collagen, symptoms like arthritis and Type 1 Bullous SLE may become common.


Myelin, Demyelination and Stunted Body Functions

Myelin supports easy transmission of electrical impulses along nerve cells. Autoimmune diseases may lead to demyelination – the loss of myelin coverings along several nerve fibers. Sustained demyelination results in the impairment of several regular body functions like walking, balance, and so on.


Stop-Go Rule and Autoimmune Disease

Proper brain functions work along a ‘stop-and-go’ rule. All functions are performed by specific parts, with a massive region acting as the ‘stop’ part. Most anecdotal references term this stop-go function as the ‘90/10’ rule.


Regular functions of the brain will require lesser parts to perform regular activity, but that’s for healthy individuals. Unhealthy people will most likely experience spastic reactions linked to several illnesses. In some cases, the increased ‘go’ function from altered brain functions may lead to other symptoms.


Extensive management of autoimmune disease symptoms are vital to help ease effects that may influence the brain. Neglecting to reverse the effects of autoimmune diseases could spiral out of control to cause awkward brain activity. Some common neural disorders linked to autoimmune diseases include:

- Optic neuritis

- Neurosarcoidosis

- Neuro–Behcet’s disease

- Hashimoto’s encephalopathy

- Cerebral lupus

- Central nervous system vasculitis

- Neuro-myelitis optica

- Autoimmune-related epilepsy

- Autoimmune encephalitis

Consulting a qualified medical practitioner is the smartest way to manage any brain disorders linked to autoimmune diseases. Proper management of symptoms will also address inflammation and help send the disorders into remission.
