Autoimmune Diseasaes – So many drug commercials

Do you turn off the drug commercials on TV?

It is interesting as the majority of these commercials fall currently under three categories migraine, psych drugs (and their side effect tardive dyskinesia and autoimmune diseases.. None of these drugs go to the cause of the problem and are just band aids that come with side effects

I like to talk about them all but the one that i notice the most are the autoimmune medications. The ones about you skin being clear, or your arthritis, or IBS or….. All of which are autoimmune problems.

And what they are selling is a medication which lowers your immune response, thus lowers your immunity.    Per Drugs.com….. “affects your immune system. You may get infections more easily:. The ad on TV states you may be unable to fight infections

Yes, and one says it lowers the large amount of eosinophils – which are white blood cells. So the disease creates a strong immune response, but the medication lowers it.

Now interestingly, there is apparently a “link” with autoimmune and migraine per studies and research done.

We will address migraines in another article as well as tardive dyskinesia which is actually a side effect of the drugs they give for “mental health”. TD as they now call it, is connected with a lack of B12. Yes we will get to that article as well.

But autoimmune seems to be the number one target …people do suffer from the itchy, blotchy skin problems as well as digestive problems, etc. all of which are really autoimmune problems.

To address these issues – build health.

Here are some pages that talk about this including skin problems,

“See Me” Medications? Are you risking your health?

I understand that problem.    It’s embarrassing to have ugly patches of redden skin and you feel you have to cover up which is harder in the summer..   The “see Me” medication also emphasizes the fact that people see the rash and judge the person – or so it seems.   It does look like it might be  contagious.

The solution is medications that unfortunately has a lot of side effects )I think I’ve seen at least 4 commercials for similar drugs.  The information on these  drug say that it “may lower the ability of your immune system to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections” This is pretty uniform on any medication that fights an autoimmune problem.   Lower the immune response and relieve the symptoms of you health challenge.

In this time of vaccines being important due to the flu pandemic, it doesn’t see wise to risk your health for clearer skin.’

I would think a better solution is something natural that work by addressing the inflammation aspect of the conditon.

Masks & Skin Inflammation and Bacterial exposure due to wearing them

Whether you agree with the wearing of masks or not, you are often required to wear them to work for 8 hours, or when you visit a store.

Without the controversy there is another situation, many people develop skin trouble from wearing a mask (especially those prone to acne & skin problems)

There is a solution to the skin inflammation.Here is an article regarding this: Natural Skin Repair Solution for Maskne

 

Bacteria Infections – This is part of the problem, no doubt, but there is a situation (and more controversy) regarding bacterial infection from breathing in a mask.

We will find out more information on this, but meanwhile, please don’t wear a mask more than one day before changing to a new mask which has just been washed.

One of the scary thoughts is geting a bacterial infection in your lungs and then being exposed to the flu with already weakened lungs from a bacterial infection. So if you wear a mask, keep it clean and bacteria free.

More next week.

Acne from Wearing a Mask?

Yes, its not a joke, many people who have to wear masks for long hours and are prone to acne will develop what is now called Maskne.

You can read about it on this page, it includes what you can do and even the clinical trials that back this up.

Skin Relief? Discover the Underlying Cause of Skin Problems

If you are like most people with a problem skin condition, you’ve spent countless hours researching solutions.  You’ve probably tried many different products with the hope of finding something that would improve your skin. Any non-optimum skin condition can cause embarrassment and affect self-esteem and quality of life.

What most people don’t know about the underlying cause of skin problems

Inflammation is at the core of most health issues. Unresolved, chronic inflammation is a feature of a wide range of chronic health conditions, including skin conditions.

Acute inflammation is a necessary, protective response of the body tissues to adverse stimuli, like irritants, or damaged cells due to injury. Acute inflammation lessens when the stimulus is removed. In contrast, chronic inflammation is an ongoing response to stimuli that doesn’t end and the longer it continues the more it causes cellular degeneration and damage.

In fact, chronic inflammation is recognized as one of the four primary factors that affect health and cause degeneration in the body.

What effect does chronic inflammation have on the body?

Chronic inflammation can affect the following:

  • Skin health and inflammatory skin conditions
  • Immune system health
  • Cardiovascular health – many heart attacks are caused by inflammation around the heart, and high blood pressure can be caused by inflammation of the blood vessels.

Dr. Robert Crea stated, “Tackling inflammation will be at the core of medicine for the next 20 years. Cellular inflammation, and trying to control it, is going to be at the core of medicine over the next 20 years and people want to manage it with natural compounds.”

What can you do about chronic inflammation?

The good news is you can do something about chronic inflammation. Eating more plant-based whole foods will help. In addition, taking a supplement designed to have a powerful, positive impact on chronic inflammation will provide extra anti-inflammatory support.

Dr. Robert Weiss says, “Plant-based whole foods are the most powerful disease modifying tools available to practitioners – more powerful than any drugs or surgeries.”

Treating skin conditions from the inside

If you have an unresolving skin issue it is very likely you have chronic inflammation in your body.

Most people try to tackle their skin condition with a topical solution, but creams, gels or lotions don’t always deliver the desired result.

Skin conditions need to be addressed from inside the body as that’s where the chronic inflammation is happening.

Introducing Inflammation Relief – the supplement that comes from the latest research into the benefits of olive oil and raises the standard of the bioavailable active ingredient

Inflammation Relief  is a result of the latest research conducted in the field of olive polyphenols.

Polyphenols are natural bioactive compounds, naturally present in fruit, vegetables and other plants, which are known for their anti-inflammatory capacity. Olive oil is rich in polyphenols giving it anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties.

Inflammation Relief is a totally natural proprietary formula of olive polyphenols extracted from the pulp of fresh, organically grown olives (Olea Europaea.)

Each capsule of Inflammation Relief delivers double the concentration of olive polyphenols and sets a new high bar for a dietary supplement due to its bioavailable antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. One capsule contains as much antioxidant polyphenols as 8 to 12 ounces of extra virgin olive oil without all the calories.

There are numerous studies supporting the benefits of olive oil and olive polyphenols. These can be found on PubMed.gov

The Time to Act is Now!

Inflammation Relief  can improve skin conditions, whether you are suffering from itchy skin, dry skin, flaky skin, scaly skin, spots, bumps, or one of many other skin problems.

Every cell has a turnover rate. Skin cells are replaced every 30 to 40 days, depending on your age. If you start doing things now to impact the health of your skin cells, the new version of these cells will be better than the last.
