Is Your Gut Related To Autoimmune Disorders?

Autoimmune diseases have registered an alarming increase worldwide since the end of the Second World War. This pandemic includes more than 80 autoimmune disorders and increases in both the incidence and prevalence of autoimmune disorders such as;

  • Crohn’s disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritisGutHealth
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Type I diabetes

Genetic predisposition, environmental factors (including infections), and gut dysbiosis (improper gut bacterial flora) play major roles in the development of autoimmune diseases. Autoimmunity develops over time. Initially, symptoms of autoimmune disorders are vague and include fatigue, low-grade fever, muscle and joint aches, and malaise. They usually progress and can become debilitating. Patients are often seen by physicians only after their disease process has become symptomatic, clouding the understanding of the early events leading to disease.

How Does Your Gut Impact Immune Health?

The gut-brain axis acts as a bidirectional communication between the brain and the gut. Your gut wall houses 70 percent of the cells that make up your immune system. You might not attribute digestive problems with allergies, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, irritable bowel syndrome, acne, chronic fatigue and mood disorders. Many diseases seemingly unrelated are actually caused by gut problems. When there is an imbalance of intestinal microflora (good vs bad bacteria) immune health is weakened leading to serious health complications if not addressed from the on-set.

 Can Chiropractic Help?

In chiropractic, we seek to identify areas of nerve interference along the spine and strive to improve the communication between the brain and the gut thereby allowing this system to self regulate and self heal as it was intended. The upper cervical nerve center is the section of your spine located at the base of your skull. This nerve center stimulates the proper functioning of your immune system. When you experience an interference of this nerve center, a weakened immunity is possible.
