Autoimmune Disease and Alternative Medicine
Did you know that in the case of autoimmune disease, 24 million people suffer from the effects of diseases like Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis? This does not include the numbers of people who suffer from allergic reactions and asthma.
That sound like an epidemic.
I found the most amazing article, that I believe every single person who is immune system -impaired, should read. The title is: “How To Stop Attacking Yourself: 9 Steps to Heal Autoimmune Disease“. Here is the Linky Goodness-
I am going to quote and discuss a few of the more important facts in the article. But I hope you will read the entire piece, because there is a reason it was #2 in the Google search!
Let’s start with this, in a nutshell: “Autoimmune disease conditions are connected by one central biochemical process: A runaway immune response also known as systemic inflammation that results in your body attacking its own tissues. ”
In other words, the symptoms from these diseases happen when the chemical systems in your body go haywire. The circulatory system, digestive system, endocrine system, urinary system, lymphatic system, autoimmune system, respiratory system, nervous system and reproductive system cannot communicate and function together as they are meant to.
A functioning automobile engine uses oil and other fluids to ease the friction that develops when metal parts work together, otherwise your car would overheat. Your biochemical systems work the same way, and when they don’t have what they need to ease the “friction”, you develop inflammation, which is the basis for all autoimmune symptoms. If your car is not getting the oil it needs, you can keeps dumping oil in it and pray it keeps running, or you can remove the cause of the problem and get the systems functioning correctly.
What is Alternative Medicine?
“ (sic) Conventional physicians are trained to shut off inflammation with medication, but are not trained to find and treat the underlying causes of inflammation in chronic disease and are not addressing the cause. Functional (alternative) medicine is a different way of thinking about disease that teaches us to treat the cause, not only the symptoms and to ask the question WHY are you sick, not only WHAT disease do you have.”
If the medical community as such, does not care to repair the cause, then alternative medicine treatments should definitely be considered. Does alternative medicine work? Think about this- there’s no such thing as “alternative medicine“. If you try a new approach, and you find that a therapy works, it’s good medicine. And if a therapy doesn’t work, then it’s not an alternative for you. It doesn’t matter if it “approved” or not. If it works for you or not is the only thing that matters.
From the article: “(My patients’) results simply reflect the application of a new model of thinking about problems called functional medicine — it’s a way to get to the root of health problems and treat the underlying causes of what ails you instead of suppressing symptoms with medications.”
Call it alternative medicine or call it functional medicine. It is very simple. Do what makes sense.
Alternative for Your Autoimmune Disease?
At the end of the article are nine ways to cure the cause of your systemic breakdown. There are more than nine ways, and I have another possibility for you.
I am an ambassador for Plexus Slim, a natural, plant-based powder, that you mix with water and drink, that was developed for diabetics, to balance and maintain healthy blood sugar levels. It is called “the pink drink that makes you shrink”, because a side-effect of taking the drink is fast weight loss (if you consider 2-3 months fast…). I also say “and puts your body back in sync” because that is what it can do— get your biochemical systems functioning the way they should, and working together again.
Plexus also offers two other products, BioCleanse, and ProBio5. The use of these products has had amazing results for many people. Please click “Testimonals”, in the header menu at the top of the front page, to read the individual articles.
In these testimonials, and thousands more, you will find that, besides the relief they found, it is just so EASY! Anyone can do it. With the other two products mentioned above, yes, they are pills. If they could make those into a drink, I am sure they would have. (It’s a great company!)
(Note: Plexus Worldwide products have only been FDA-approved as a weight loss supplement, not as a medically-approved curative for any disease.)
My question to you is—what have you got to lose? Obviously-money. The products aren’t free, or covered by insurance. Would you consider that spending your money on a natural remedy and not on medications that are toxic for you, a good investment? Here’s the thing. Honesty is the best policy, so— Plexus Worldwide believes in its products so much, that they have a 60-Day Money-Back Guarantee. If you find that Plexus products do not work for you within that time-frame, then you haven’t lost a thing. (It really is a great company!)
The article suggests many ways to beat the causes of your disease. Here is an opportunity for you to possibly end your suffering. A simple drink…a couple of pills…sounds unbelievable, I know. But maybe, just maybe, Plexus Slim can change your life, and kick your autoimmune disease to the curb, for good!
