There appear to be so many possible causes for conditions that ALL fall under autoimmune diseases.
We treat symptoms and not any root cause. Because its not possible? I find it strange that no studies were done to find root causes. Conclusion maybe as simple as "those who had MMR between 19xx to 20xx" ! Or had xyz before travelling or blood type plus exposure to xyz.
Guess the list of combinations are endless but someone should start investigating somewhere surely!
Why antibiotics help some autistic patients.
Why these so called age related conditions are happening to people in their 20s! Why cancers are so common.
All very strange!
No idea what my cause is, but do now know one factor that triggers it and so have managed to control flares and even wean myself off most of my RA medication over a period of 4 months. (All meds had very bad side affects for me).
During my quest for alternate natural ways to heal, found some that are working (in progress) I came across this video by Dr Tent yesterday. It starts off slow but is quite a shocker.
Its very lengthy but I think worth watching.
The exploding autoimmune epidemic

I decided research and "listen" to what my body was saying was the wat to go.
Maybe this info will help understand and make sense of what might have happened .
Many others out there Dr Mercola, Dr. Bergman etc who talk about a downward spiral due to meds. I certainly felt my body was being forced to shutdown.
Science has not advanced enough to know everything and main stream Doctors are trained in treating patients with predetermined medicines dictated by Government's and Pharmaceuticals.
Often they contradict themselves years later after what was prescribed wide spread.
Half the time we don't know whats in our food, GM or not, really organic? Pesticides, chemicals etc but then we are quite happy to have a pill that is not a cure and has multiple side effects, can cause organ failure, heart attacts and does not even claim to ease the pain temporarily let alone cure anything! even the literature says that they don't really know how it works!
Oh well...thats my rant for the day. Hope the damage done is not too bad and reversible eventually.
Hope this gives food for thought and incentives to share alternative treatments too.
