In today’s environment, the average person is exposed to hundreds of toxins per day including chemicals in the water, food, plastics in the air, in our furniture, etc. Over the past 50 years, thousands of chemicals have been produced and introduced into the environment; and now our systems have to figure out a way to deal with all these insults. Often times the body is unable to metabolize these chemicals and sees them as foreign invaders.
The immune system creates antibodies to fight them off. In addition to attacking the foreign chemical, frequently the antibodies also attack the host cell. This means they attack one’s own body. This happens with thyroid disease, musculoskeletal illnesses and is even thought to possibly cause diabetes. To date, there are over 100 listed auto immune diseases. If you are interested in learning more about these diseases, plan on attending Dr. Sal’s presentation on July 13.
