ES 5 Auto-immune The immune system is a major defense system of the body and is basically a cell-destroying mechanism. As such, it must be able to distinguish ‘good’ cells from ‘bad’ ones. If this process goes awry, for example through incorrect production of antibodies, then autoimmune diseases and allergic reactions may result. Your body’s immune system protects you from disease and infection. But if you have an autoimmune disease, your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. Autoimmune diseases can affect many parts of the body. No one is sure what causes autoimmune diseases. They do tend to run in families. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune diseases, and some have similar symptoms. This makes it hard for your health care provider to know if you really have one of these diseases, and if so, which one. Getting a diagnosis can be frustrating and stressful. Often, the first symptoms are fatigue, muscle aches and a low fever. The classic sign of an autoimmune disease is inflammation, which can cause redness, heat, pain and swelling. The diseases may also have flare-ups, when they get worse, and remissions, when symptoms get better or disappear. Treatment depends on the disease, but in most cases one important goal is to reduce inflammation
- • Women of childbearing age — More women than men have autoimmune diseases, which often start during their childbearing years.
- • People with a family history — Some autoimmune diseases run in families: o such as lupus and multiple sclerosis.
It is also common for different types of autoimmune diseases to affect different members of a single family. Inheriting certain genes can make it more likely to get an autoimmune disease. But a combination of genes and other factors may trigger the disease to start.
- • People who are around certain things in the environment — Certain events or environmental exposures may cause some autoimmune diseases, or make them worse. o Sunlight, chemicals called solvents, and viral and bacterial infections are linked to many autoimmune diseases.
- • People of certain races or ethnic backgrounds — Some autoimmune diseases are more common or affect certain groups of people more severely. For instance, type 1 diabetes is more common in white people. Lupus is most severe for African-American and Hispanic people.
Although each disease is unique, many share hallmark symptoms, such as fatigue, dizziness, and low-grade fever. For many autoimmune diseases, symptoms come and go, or can be mild sometimes and severe at others. When symptoms go away for a while, it’s called remission. Flares are the sudden and severe onset of symptoms.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia are often misdiagnosed as autoimmune diseases.
- • Chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, or ME/CFS,
- • Fibromyalgia (feye-broh-meye-AL-juh) (FM) o are not autoimmune diseases. But they often have symptoms of some autoimmune disease, like being tired all the time and pain.
- o ME/CFS can cause you to be very tired, have trouble concentrating, feel weak, and have muscle pain. Symptoms of ME/CFS come and go. The cause of ME/CFS is not known.
ES 5 liquid remedy has been designed to assist with correcting the considerable disturbances that distorted autoimmune functions generate. Taking ES 5 at the time of an allergic reaction may be beneficial, working to lessen symptoms. The Thymus Driver liquid remedy may also correlate to the reduction of long-term allergic issues. ES 5 may be of benefit for childhood development disorders caused by inflammatory responses in the brain from virus infection or live inoculations. *Response to this preparation needs to be closely monitored. If there are strong reactions, you should stop it until symptoms subside.
