As­sess Your Emo­tions\\ and Spir­i­tual Life

Alternative Medicine - - Quick Nutrition -

Your bi­og­ra­phy be­comes your bi­ol­ogy. Most peo­ple with a chronic ill­ness are car­ry­ing an emo­tional bur­den in­clud­ing the feeling of be­ing sick it­self. Know that the ill­ness is not your fault, but it is your re­spon­si­bil­ity to look at what in your life might be cre­at­ing and per­pet­u­at­ing stress. Chronic stress, in all its forms, un­der­lies chronic ill­ness. To heal, we have to un­cover those bur­dens and do our best to re­move them. Let go of painful mem­o­ries, re­sent­ment, re­gret, and neg­a­tive emo­tion. Find a way that works for you, whether that’s cognitive ther­apy with a psy­chol­o­gist, prayer, or a mind­ful­ness or for­give­ness prac­tice.

Prac­tic­ing these 8 steps will im­prove your health and the qual­ity of your well­be­ing and, when done ef­fec­tively, can re­verse autoimmunity al­to­gether.

Chronic stress in any form can cause adrenal fa­tigue, which causes the hor­mones cor­ti­sol, adrenaline, and nor­ep­i­neph­rine to be­come de­pleted. This can al­low im­mune sys­tem T-cells to get out of con­trol, re­sult­ing in in­flam­ma­tion and an im­bal­ance be­tween T-cells and B-cells.

> Chronic stress can im­pair methy­la­tion, which can sup­press T-cell pro­duc­tion. Im­paired methy­la­tion of T-cells may be in­volved in the pro­duc­tion of au­toan­ti­bod­ies.

> Chronic in­fec­tious stress can cause both B-cells and T-cells to be over­pro­duced, re­sult­ing in autoimmunity.

> Gas­troin­testi­nal stress, per­haps caused by par­a­sites, yeast, or an over­growth of bad bac­te­ria, af­fects all the cells of your im­mune sys­tem, and dis­rupts the bal­ance be­tween T-reg­u­la­tor cells, and Th1 and Th2 cells.

> Food al­ler­gies and sen­si­tiv­i­ties can cause over­pro­duc­tion of B-cells, which may re­sult in an ac­ci­den­tal at­tack on healthy tis­sues.
