Cleansing and Auto Immune Disorders

Three years ago, I was diagnosed with wheat intolerance - it all came to a head when I started a healthy lifestyle change of eating yogurt every day. This caused my system to completely over amp when I ate anything with wheat in it; my beloved home made bread, pasta and many other pre-packaged items such as - of all things - mushroom soup.

After a year of reading so many ingredient labels, it's been under control for a while.

I've been advised to slowly add wheat back into my diet, but I've also come across a lot of information about completely cutting wheat and wheat gluten out of your diet even if you don't have any issues with it, as wheat is a relatively new (anthropologically speaking) addition to the western diet.

Okay, last year (2010) in the spring, I started having issues with dizziness and fatigue, long story short, after blood tests, I was found to have low thyroid.

The dizziness abated after starting to take Synthroid, an artificial thyroid replacement, only to return along with some other very odd symptoms, including in August, complete numbness of my whole body starting in my feet.

The numbness crept up my whole body, and I started getting scared when it reached my neck.

However, after it reached my hands, it receded from everywhere else, leaving only my hands numb, which they still are today.

After numerous tests, including an MRI, I was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) as well as Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (which is where your immune system destroys the thyroid, thinking it's a foreign body).

So, the upshot of all these odd seemingly unrelated issues is that they are all auto immune problems, where the immune system attacks various parts of your body, thinking they are invaders.

Unfortunately, you can have many issues that remain hidden until an event such as surgery (hysterectomy in 2005, after which I had pneumonia) or other stressor (agents that cause stress).

So, after that long winded explanation, my question is: do you think it would be beneficial to do a colon cleanse on a regular basis? I'm not into doing a high colonic cleanse, but I would like some information on where to start.

I've also found that acupuncture really has helped my numbness, headaches and other varied symptoms, but I'm still having digestive issues, including diarrhea, interspersed with episodes of constipation, which is a common occurrence with MS.

Phew. That's it! Do you have any advice for me in my particular circumstances?

High Colonic Cleanse Answer

by: Kamala

Your Question:

I'm not into doing a high colonic cleanse, but I would like some information on where to start.

Do you have a colon irrigation center in your locality. You can make an appointment to see the colon hydro therapist, who will be able to advise you.

You can also read the history of colon hydrotherapy., to know how long it has been used. That shows it is not a new fad, but a revived old and trusted way to cleanse your colon

You can do a high colonic enema at home too. You need an enema kit. You can do a colonic cleanse with an enema bag, by hanging the enema bag at least 2 feet above you. A silicone enema bag or an enema bucket that has a high volume of at least 4 quarts is better than the small disposable enema bags.

I bought a very good enema bag many years ago. Now after 12 years it is still strong and good as new. If you plan to keep it a long time, you must get a good sturdy enema bag, a silicone bag is good.

The only problem with mine is its low capacity. So, I have to give myself at least three rounds of enema for it to be effective.

If I were you I'd buy an enema bag or bucket that holds more water - a four or five quart capacity plus a Ultimate Deluxe Home Colonic Board w/Matching Container where you can relax and not run to the toilet every time, as the water entering will keep cleaning out your colon.

Make sure you get a Silicone Enema Set, as it'll last a long time.

As to the question on where to start, read as much as you can on colon hydrotherapy. Then if you want, go for a colon irrigation at a colon hydrotherapy clinic in your area, where you can get more information

I just went into it and found it easy to carry out.

There are homemade colon machines that can do the trick too.


Total Body Cleanse

Your Question:

Do you think it would be beneficial to do a colon cleanse on a regular basis?

Doing a colon cleanse regularly is important especially if you suffer digestive problems. But do it only once you've done a whole body cleanse.

Another total body cleanse every six months or at least yearly is in order.

What is a total body cleanse that you must do before you even think of doing a colon cleanse regularly?

A whole body cleanse has the complete works of cleansing your colon, the parasites, the kidney and the liver.

Won't it be great to find your symptoms diminishing and maybe finally vanishing? The home made colon cleanse is for when you are healthy.

There are many different remedies that you can use to kill or stun parasites. The herbal parasite cleanse gives you a choice of ingredients.

You can do this as maintenance, after you've got rid of parasites in your colon, and when the symptoms of your auto-immune diseases are much less.

The latest research points to parasites as the prime cause of auto-immune diseases. In the next comment session I'll recommend some good colon and parasite cleansers.

Do a kidney cleanse by eating watermelon or drinking watermelon juice or watermelon tea.

Finally do the jewel of cleanses for the gallbladder and liver with a gallbladder flush. I find the liver or gallbladder flush very effective, once you've cleansed the rest of the body.

By cleansing the rest of the body, you allow the toxins released by the liver flush to be removed effectively by the colon and kidneys.
However I do recommend that you use good colon and parasite cleansers for the auto-immune condition.

Autoimmune Disease Causes

by: Kamala

Let me first comment on some of the things that you have written about and then get on with the questions.

Natural home-made yogurt is healthy unlike commercial yogurt that may have gluten. An excess of gluten may have caused the wheat intolerance to start.

Gluten is sometimes used in commercial yogurt as a thickener or stabilizer. Gluten is also used in many other commercial products such as soups, as a thickener or, as a flavor stabilizer, So, the taking of gluten may have caused your reaction to wheat products.

Digestive issues may indicate the presence of parasites. No one is immune to parasites especially if you handle raw meat, eat undercooked meat, handle pets, work with soil or even eat healthy salads.

All these contribute to bacteria and intestinal worms that can harm your body without you even knowing about it.

Parasites may produce toxins that are harmful to the body.

Conventional researchers have found Chlamydia trachomatis, Yersinia enterocolitica, Shigella, Y. pseudotuberculosis, and Ureaplasma urealyticum as the cause of some inflammatory disease.

The bacteria Yersinia enterocolitica can do the following:

Yersinia lays eggs in the intestines. The body will make antibodies to fight it. But the unfortunate part is these antibodies attack the thyroid and can cause Hashimoto?s Thyroiditis.

Not that I am saying that you have this bacteria, but you may. A good cleansing regiment would be good for you.

Excessive amounts of toxic metals like mercury in teeth together with certain bacteria in the root canals, are connected to fibromyalgia, MS, lupus and others.

Sometimes the immune system attacks an organ because it is trying to get rid of the toxin that is in the tissues.

Let me now answer your questions as best as I can in the next comment pages. So stay tuned, when it is ready you?ll get an email notification, if you had asked for one.

Otherwise come and check this detox faq page and click on your submission and scroll down to the comments. Since the comments page is limited, and the my answer is long, I have to create a few comment pages for your submission.

So, stay tuned for the next part?

Hope I Can Help

by: Daniel D.

I have been working in the natural health care field for well over 6 years and I have worked with many that have had similar concerns as yourself. While I can see there are multiple health concerns in your story what I can tell you is that treating a symptom will not resolve the problem.

Typically and more often than not I suggest a complete cleanse of the system in order to accomplish a balance of the body. This, paired with a good diet should help you considerably and many find they are able to over come these problems.

I would suggest being in contact with the Global Healing Center, which is where I currently work.

You can ask for me and I will be more than happy to help you. For us its more about education than selling a product and we offer support in this regard, we can review in more depth what your dealing with and go from there.

I look forward to speaking with you!
