Osteoporosis & Autoimmunity
Osteoporosis recognized as an autoimmune process:
A report in the New England Journal of Medicine identifies antibodies against osteoprotegerin (a protein that prevents bone breakdown). This protein is responsible for helping maintain bone density. When it is attacked by the body’s immune system, bone loss becomes accelerated leading to osteoporosis.
It has been well established that many immune system derived chemicals help regulate inflammation, bone cell growth, bone resorption, and more.
The importance of the connection between the immune system and bone tissue is recognized in a field of research called Osteoimmunology.
It’s long been suspected that Narcolepsy (sleepy disease) was an autoimmune condition. A recent study has confirmed this. Reporting in the latest online issue of Science Translational Medicine, researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine in California:
“Narcolepsy is an autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system attacks brain cells that make the “wakefulness” protein hypocretin.”
Narcolepsy confirmed to be an autoimmune condition.

This article adds to the knowledge of how the immune system responds to foreign invaders. When the immune system reacts and does not “turn off”, chronic inflammation results leading to disease.

With Leaky Gut Syndrome undigested food molecules and other “bad stuff” (yeast, toxins, and all other forms of waste) that your body normally doesn’t allow through your intestinal lining, flow freely into your bloodstream.
This article tells how to heal Leaky Gut through diet.
Understanding what Leaky Gut Syndrome is helps to heal the root-cause.
“Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) is the root of many of our contemporary health issues. In fact, some sources claim that LGS is the underlying cause of up to 50% of chronic medical complaints.”
Read more to find out the basics of Leaky Gut and what you can do heal from it.
Leaky Gut Syndrome not only affects the digestive system but can lead to many other health conditions. Leaky gut could be the cause of your food allergies, low energy, joint pain, thyroid disease, autoimmune conditions and slow metabolism.
This article tells you how you can heal leaky gut syndrome and possibly some of the health problems you’ve been struggling with.
29% percent of adult Americans – 70 million people – say they are trying to cut back on gluten…should you?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition fed by the protein gluten found in wheat, barley and rye.
“Gluten is unique among proteins in that it cannot be broken down completely by human beings into amino acids.”

Research suggests that digestive abnormalities may be the underlying cause of autoimmune diseases.
“Emerging research shows that most autoimmune conditions may share a common root hiding in the intestinal lining of individuals with autoimmune diseases, even years before the symptoms manifest.”
“Increased intestinal permeability, commonly referred to as leaky gut, can result in the absorption of incompletely digested protein and antigens that overstimulate the immune system through the bloodstream.”
“Alessio Fasano, MD, a world-renowned pediatric gastroenterologist, research scientist, and founder of the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research, believes all autoimmune conditions have three factors in common”:
- a genetic susceptibility
- antigen exposure
- increased intestinal permeability
According to the article: Recent evidence indicates that the autoimmune process can be modulated and possibly reversed by improving intestinal permeability.
