The Immune System Expert
At the base is your genes, all 23,000 of them. Each of these is inherited by your parents and are present your whole life. However, they are not necessarily noticed until some other factor activates them.
The genes can be turned on or off, much like a light switch, by what we can visualize as the points on the health are:
-The Chemical Self
-The Physical Self
-and the Mental Self
The Autoimmune Matrix
It is understood that autoimmune diseases are caused by chemical, physical,
or mental influences turning on certain genes. In other words, autoimmunity is
bred by lifestyle choices and behavior. It is also important to note that each of
these elements can interact with one another. If we are not
tending to our physical self, our chemical self reacts and vice versa.
Food Allergies & Sensitivities
For such people with allergies, the joy of eating is diminished by the ever-present concern that they might consume a food or food ingredient that will elicit an adverse reaction.
