Haptens: A Root Cause Of Food Intolerance, Chemical Sensitivity, Skin Sensitivity, And Autoimmunity

Many of my chemically sensitive clients have reactions from inhaling, eating, and skin/air contact with chemicals.

Haptens effect on the immune system supports why they can wear a gas mask in a perfumey room and still get sick.

I haven't seen anyone else online talking about haptens and I've noticed that a lot of my allergies and chemical sensitivities have improved by reducing my hapten exposure.

In study models, haptens can be used in to induce food intolerance, chemical sensitivities, skin disease, and autoimmunity.

In this post, we will discuss the how haptens may have detrimental effects on humans.

Why NRF2 Activation Can Make You More Sick

Recent cancer research has helped us understand how the body detoxes.

By studying upregulated genes in tumorous cells, we were able to find the Nuclear Erythroid 2–Related Factor 2 (NRF2) pathway.

NRF2 is a major transcription factor in detoxing the body and keeping it healthy.

In this post, we will discuss the benefits/downsides of NRF2 activation, as well as why NRF2 may be hurting you more than helping you (and what you can do about it).

Are EMFs Dangerous? Unbiased Science-Based Review of Electromagnetic Fields

Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) are perceived as environmental stressors on living organisms.

But since man-made EMFs are a very new stressor for humans, our cells have not developed proper defensive mechanisms against them. 

For example, EMFs are classified as possibly carcinogenic (cancer causing) as is arsenic, chloroform, cigarettes, DDT, estrogenics, heavy metals, roundup, etc. 

It seems clear that we would not willingly expose ourselves to these other agents, so why would we expose ourselves EMFs?

Is it from digital dementia (using electronics to remember everything for us) or FOMO (fear of missing out)? 

In this post, to simplify everything, I'll try to stay away from quantum physics as much as possible. 😉

I'll also show as unbiased of an opinion of EMFs as possible, but I do give you my opinion towards the end.

I'll also provide ways you can protect yourself from the downsides of EMFs.

Arsenic Lowers IQ and Disrupts the Gut-Brain Axis

Arsenic is so common, but it is not talked about much. 

It is hidden in our food and supplements, but has devastating effects on the body that we will discuss below.

We will also discuss what you can do to protect yourself from arsenic in our toxic environment.

Proton Pump Inhibitors Kill Mitochondria And Brain Function

The Actual Dangers of Taking Proton Pump Inhibitors and What You Can Do About It

Proton pump inhibitors are used very commonly by gastroenterologists for anyone with "stomach" issues.

It is probably the first thing they will give a patient before looking further into what the real cause is.

They have serious short-term and long-term downsides and are destroying our brain and our gut.

Why You Need To Get Out Into The Sun

In common day western society, we are consistently bombarded by artificial light.

Our workspaces are indoors, powered by fluorescent blue lights (which blue has its own negatives).

We only get sun rarely and it's either partial (such as through glass while driving to work) or too much (single sessions of long periods hanging out at the beach).

We also try to supplement for the sun by taking vitamin D hormone supplements, which is not as bioactive for creating the active form vitamin D.

The Truth Behind Vitiligo and How To Effectively Treat It

Recent evidence suggests that oxidative stress, auto-immunity and melanocyte apoptosis are involved vitiligo. 

Essentially what happens in vitiligo is hyperactive T cells decide to target and kill melanocytes: 

  1. Melanocytes have abnormally high levels of cellular stress, which can be caused by inherited factors, genetic factors, or both.
  2. Stressed melanocytes produce signals that activate innate immune cells to initiate inflammation that leads to autoimmunity.
  3. Innate immune signals recruit adaptive immune cells (primarily CD8+ T Cells) into the skin, which then find melanocytes and kill them, resulting in white spots, or depigmentation.

IL-8: 53 Ways to Naturally And Artificially Lower This Chemokine

Interleukin 8 (IL8 or CXCL8) is a chemokine produced by macrophages and other cell types such as epithelial cells, airway smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells. 

IL-8, also known as neutrophil chemotactic factor, has two primary functions: 

It induces chemotaxis in target cells, primarily neutrophils but also other granulocytes, causing them to migrate toward the site of infection.
It also induces phagocytosis once they have arrived.
