In this video, Dr. Huntoon discusses the newest chronic health concern sweeping our healthcare system: Auto-Immune Disease.
Why would a body all of a sudden attack itself? It doesn't make sense, and yet it has grown to over 130 varieties.
When you are ready, we are here to provide sound solutions for you.

Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?
The concept that your body could attack itself is one that might seem difficult to appreciate, but there seems to be an increase in the conditions classified as Auto-Immune Disease or Disorder. In fact, in the past 25 years, there have been more than 120 different auto-immune diseases classified. That in itself seems like we need to begin understanding why this is occurring. And since one of my practice members asked about this specifically, I'd like to help you appreciate how an Auto-Immune Disorder begins and why there would be an increase in these conditions. I hope this information will educate you so that you may avoid them yourself, and that you will forward this information to any and all of your friends and loved ones who may be suffering from these disorders as well. After all, understanding is the key to prevention.
Auto-Immune Disorders are defined as "Disorders in which the Immune System produces auto-antibodies to an endogenous antigen, with consequent injury to tissues." In simple terms, the body attacks itself. The most "famous" of these disorders is called Lupus, more properly known as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus or SLE for short. It is a condition defined as "An inflammatory connective tissue disorder of unknown etiology occurring predominantly in young women, but also in children." As stated, it is of "unknown etiology, or origin" to the traditional medical profession. But through one of my mentors, I have come to understand it as an indication that the person's body is "allergic" to a component within its own blood. In other words, the Immune System doesn't recognize the body's own blood as being part of the body, but instead sees it as a foreign invader, and hence attacks the invader wherever it goes. In the case of Lupus, that would be everywhere in the body. What this will eventually lead to is multiple organ failure.
The question begs with any Auto-Immune Disorder, why would the Immune System all of a sudden begin to not recognize the cells of the blood, or other tissues such as the Spleen or Liver? If you understand how the Immune System functions and develops its memory, the answer is not that difficult to comprehend. It goes all the way back to proper nutrition. And it includes the help of taking different medications that alter immune recognition, genetic pre-disposition I'm sure, with life-style choices playing a factor too.
Studying the information presented by and lectured about from the most famous and foremost authority on nutrition and disease of his time, Dr. Royal Lee, the founder of Standard Process Whole Food Nutritional Supplements recognized way back in the 1940's these Auto-Immune Disorders as deficiency diseases. He discovered that when a person becomes deficient in essential nutrients (from a diet high in refined, man-made foods and foods high in sugar), the protective layer of the organ(s) starts to weaken and eventually breaks. This causes whole proteins from that organ to freely leak into the blood stream. This is something that should never happen. Then when the Immune System sees those free proteins, it recognizes them as being foreign. And because the whole protein molecules should not be circulating within the bloodstream (only Amino Acids derived from the proteins we eat), the Immune System begins creating specific antibodies to those proteins and begins attacking them as they leak from the organ. This is Auto-Immune Disease. As mentioned above, SLE is an immune response to a component within the persons blood. And because the blood circulates through every organ, it eventually leads to immune responses that effect all the organs.
So to simplify this condition of the immune system attacking the body (aka Auto-Immune Disease), if you are dealing with an Auto-Immune Disease, know that the organ or gland associated with the disease you have is leaking its own proteins and your immune system is doing its job of protecting you from these "foreign" proteins. The result of this is Auto-Immune Disease. Whatever the name you have been given, this is the mechanism for your condition.
Medicines Two Choices for You
So what can a body do?
That's where Dr. Royal Lee was a true pioneer. As a nutritional specialist, he developed whole food supplement products that would allow the body to focus on a special part of the ingredients of that supplement, while the balance of the ingredients would go toward repairing the organ(s) and stop the leaking of proteins. The special ingredient he termed Protomorphogen's or PMG for short. As an ingredient within the supplement, it acts as a counter measure designed to take the focus off the organ and direct it at itself. The rest of the ingredients go towards repairing the organ affected and the balance of health can begin to be restored. That is why Dr. Lee was such a visionary. He figured this out way back in the 1940's. And his company, Standard Process, has developed different PMG's for each organ that are designed specifically to help that organ heal, thus allowing for the Auto-Immune response to stop and the body to go back to a healthy balance.
What This Means To You
If you, or a loved one suffers with any Auto-Immune or related conditions such as Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, etc. you should take notice that there is hope for you that won't require you to take Prednisone or some other sort of medication/steroid for the rest of your life. You won't have to have organs surgically replaced or die of organ failure at an age much younger then you'd like. There is hope for you and there are treatments available here at Advanced Alternative Medicine Center to fix these imbalances and restore health to your body. Part of the treatment consisting of the good high quality whole food supplements that we carry in the office manufactured from Standard Process. And since they've been using the same manufacturing process for the better part of 84 years, you know the quality is superior and the technology is sound.
What do you have to lose? Honestly, nothing. A better question is, "What do you have to gain?" That would be, your life back and all the joy that goes with it.
