Is Your Body At War With Itself!

By Dr. Greg Fors, DC / Board-certified Neurologist An autoimmune disorder is a condition that occurs when your immune system attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. Actually, it is as if your immune system becomes so enraged it declares war on the body. Autoimmune diseases are now the third most common category of disease in the United States after cancer and heart disease, with more than 80 named types and estimated at being among the ten leading causes of death among women in all age groups up to 65 years These diseases affect approximately 22 million persons, but why? From the year 1900 to the end of World War II, most of the diseases throughout the world were â&#x20AC;&#x153;diseases of contagion.â&#x20AC;? These were diseases caused by outside pathogens entering the body. With the introduction of proper sanitation practices and antibiotics, most of these contagious diseases have been controlled, especially in the developed world. However, with opening act and band music by beginning at the end of World War II and especially at the present time, Sherwin and Pam Linton the primary disorders in the developed world became diseases of the toxic burden. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simple really; as this planetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toxic burden increases, so your Sat, March 26, 2011 bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toxic burden increases. 3 PM Matinee ~ 7PM Evening Show When your body is exposed to chemicals, heavy metals and plasticizers it struggles to take these toxins out of your bloodstream Anoka High School by eliminating them through the stool and kidneys. The problem is that 3939 7th Ave N the higher the toxic load and/or the more compromised your organs of detoxification and elimination become the more you accumulate these Reserved Seats $15 Gen Adm. $13 contaminants in your tissues. These chemicals can then wreak havoc on For Ticket Information Call your body destroying your health and well-being. Your bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only defense 763-757-4143 or 763-421-4361 against this onslaught is calling the immune system into action. Ask yourself, how many people do you know with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, environmental sensitivity, lupus, Hashimotoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thyroiditis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;dry eye syndromeâ&#x20AC;? or children with autism or ADHD? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably aware of the ever-increasing numbers of people who no longer can eat foods containing gluten, casein, corn or soy, or be in the same room with someone wearing perfume. All of these modern disorders are related to an angry over taxed immune system and systemic inflammation triggered $1</LIW&KDLURU6FRRWHU U RU 6FRRWHU by toxic injury from â&#x20AC;&#x153;fakeâ&#x20AC;? foods and a toxic environment. Many of the autoimmune disorders of today were not that prevalent even 25 years ago. ,QFOXGLQJ6DOH,WHPV Hashimotoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thyroiditis is the most common thyroid disease and autoimmune disorder in the country today. It is triggered when antibodies from your immune system attack your thyroid. This can decrease the thyroidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hormone output (a condition called hypothyroidism). Symptoms include weight gain, fatigue, constipation, dry hair, depression, joint and muscle pain, infertility and often increased cholesterol. Research finds this condition to be seven times more common in women than in men and frequently goes undiagnosed unless the right lab tests are run. Thyroiditis can also increase thyroid function (hyperthyroidism). As an autoimmune disorder, this results when thyroid-stimulating antibodies begin to mimic thyroid-stimulating hormones causing your thyroid to :H6WRFN7HQD increase hormone production. This can cause symptoms of such as rapid ,QFRQWLQHQFH3URGXFWV heartbeat, heat intolerance, weight loss, frequent bowel movements and )UHH6DPSOHV$YDLODEOH anxiety like symptoms. 1R([SLUDWLRQ0XVWSUHVHQWDWWLPHRISXUFKDVH/LPLW2QH&RXSRQSHUXQLW Common causes of Hashimotoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thyroiditis are specific antigens 0F.QLJKW5G1 such as a food, a mold, bacteria, or chronic virus that triggers the autoimmune (0RRUH/DNH'U )ULGOH\ 0DSOHZRRG reaction. Environmental chemicals and heavy metals can also be triggers.   Gluten sensitivity is also a very common cause of Hashimotoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thyroid ZZZGD\PHGLFDOVWRUHFRP dysfunction and is commonly undiagnosed. +RXUV:HG)ULĆ&#x201D;6DWĆ&#x201D;6XQ0RQ7XHV&ORVHG How does someone conquer these devastating autoimmune disorders? Proper laboratory testing by a knowledgeable doctor is the only way to know what is causing your thyroiditis and how to heal it. The common approach of utilizing drugs actually suppresses the immune system which can lead to devastating side effects such as lessening your ability to resist infections and the spread of malignant cancer cells. These drugs can also cause hypertension, gastric ulcers, increased blood lipids and glucose along with kidney and liver injury. However, as have many other doctors who practice functional medicine, I have seen numerous patients with autoimmune disorders conquer them through a natural approach, without dangerous drugs. There Yâ&#x2122;&#x20AC;u & Yâ&#x2122;&#x201A;u is a better, safer way!

A heavily inebriated gentleman is going ice fishing. He starts to drill a hole with his auger when a loud booming voice says, "THERE'S NO FISH DOWN THERE!" So he stops drilling and moves a little and starts to drill again. The same voice booms, "THERE'S NO FISH DOWN THERE!" So he moves a little further and is about to drill again, but the voice immediately comes again, "THERE'S NO FISH DOWN THERE!" The drunk looks around and says, "who are you anyways? God?" "NO, I'M THE RINK MANAGER"

Thought for the Day: “You don’t get anything clean without getting something else dirty.” -- Cecil Baxter

CONSIDER THIS“Animals have these advantages over man: They never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills.” -- Voltaire

●Most people think of Abraham Lincoln as an iconic president and the Great Emancipator, but many don’t realize that he also was an inventor. He was issued patent No. 6,469 for an inflatable device he designed to help buoy river-going vessels over shoals. ●In Somalia it is common for a girl to be engaged before she is even born. ● If you get squeamish around bugs, you might not want to read the following little tidbit of information: Nearly every human carries around tiny eyelash mites that live out their entire lives on our faces -- including mating and laying eggs there. ● Due to a series of earthquakes in 1811 and 1812, the Mississippi River ran backward for a time. ●An enterprising inventor named Andrew Schneider has come up with the latest geek apparel: a solar bikini. With it, you can tan while also charging up your iPod. No word on whether there are solar swim trunks in the pipeline for men. ● J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books are so popular worldwide that now they’re not even being writing by Rowling herself. The booming bootleg industry in China seems to have taken the Potter series to heart, creating such titles as “Harry Potter and the Leopard Walk-Up-To Dragon,” “Harry Potter and the Chinese Overseas Students at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry,” “Harry Potter and the Chinese Porcelain Doll,” “Rich Dad, Poor Dad and Harry Potter” and “Harry Potter and the Filler of Big.” ● In 1955, a woman in Italy gave birth to a baby who weighed 22 pounds, 8 ounces. ● The substance now known as cat litter was originally designed to be used as nesting material for chickens. ● The blood of the icefish has no color. ● Have you ever noticed that there’s a pale crescent of flesh at the base of each of your fingernails? If you want to be technical, the word to describe it is “lunula.”

• Thomas Jefferson wore many hats over the course of his lifetime — lawyer, statesman, architect, agronomist, linguist, naturalist. This third President of the United States also penned the Declaration of Independence. In addition to his many political activities, Jefferson was also the inventor of the swivel chair, a plow, a portable copying press, a macaroni-making machine, and mechanical dumbwaiters that enabled his servants to send wine bottles from the cellar to the dining room at Monticello.

• ACanadian inventor, Harry Wasylyk, hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, is responsible for the invention of the disposable green polyethylene garbage bag. He started his operation in his kitchen in 1950, intending them for commercial use only, rather than for ordinary consumers. His first customer was the Winnipeg General Hospital. He teamed up with an employee of an Ontario Union Carbide plant, Larry Hanson, and the pair sold their invention to Union Carbide, who marketed them for home use under the name “Glad.”

We all know about Edison and Alexander Graham Bell, but what about some of the more unfamiliar people whose resourcefulness resulted in some pretty clever devices? This week, Tidbits looks at a just a few of those folks.
