Today we’re going to talk about autoimmune diseases and how an autoimmune disease could be related to a virus. 

It’s been found that the microbe (a virus) and the host cell (your own cell) many times have similar codes in their genetics. Over time, they can actually cross-react. In other words, you could develop antibodies for this virus that also attack parts of your own tissues. I think this could be a strategy that the microbes have developed to try to go underneath the radar and trick the body into thinking it’s a part of the body.

In order for cross-reactivity to happen, I think you also have to have some chemical involved or stress trigger involved. It seems there would need to be a lot of factors that would need to align, but if they did, you could potentially develop antibodies to your own tissue. 

What could you do?

1. Vitamin D (high doses)
2. Purified bile salts 
3. Oregano oil and colloidal silver
