Autoimmune Disease Symptoms Checklist… Are you on the SPECTRUM?

Autoimmune Symptoms may “Begin” to manifest very early in life.. and be entirely different for each person.  Wherever your weakest links are, is where the tissue damage will start to occur.

For example: 

If someone is diagnosed with “coeliac disease”, their first symptoms (possibly many years or decades before) may have begun with:

  1. Cognitive problems like brain fog and headaches
  2. Intestinal issues such as spasms and constipation
  3. Fatigue and weight gain

Most autoimmune diseases take many years, many symptoms and many wasted doctor’s visits before you actually get a diagnosis

In some case you will never get a diagnosis as a lot of doctors simply don’t connect the dots.

In this pre-diagnosis period, your weakest link/s get plenty of time to manifest.  Left unaddressed, further inflammation and damage may occur, and systems may become severely compromised.

All this happens without your knowledge, under your radar, fueled by stressors, poor diet (or an incorrect diet) and poor lifestyle choices.   Along with a many other contributing factors and possibly a plethora of mostly unnecessary medications.

Other examples of first symptoms may be:

  • Thyroid – you may start to experience cold intolerance or weight gain
  • Brain – you may start forgetting things or develop memory problems in general
  • Muscles & Joints – you may become weaker or start noticing aches and pains

What is the Difference between a Condition, a Disorder, a Syndrome and a Disease?

  • CONDITION is an abnormal state of health that interferes with normal feelings of well being
  • A DISORDER is the result of bodily dysfunction
  • A SYNDROME is a collection of associated symptoms and signs that consistently occur together (these may suggest a particular disease)
  • A DISEASE occurs when dysfunction has progressed to organ damage.  This may be a result of one or all of the above.

Pathway of Autoimmunity

CELL DAMAGE = TISSUE DAMAGE = ORGAN INFLAMMATION = ORGAN DAMAGE = Symptom = diagnosis
all unfelt by you… until you get a SYMPTOM, go to the doctor and (if you lucky) finally get a DIAGNOSIS!

Unfortunately those suffering with an autoimmune disease commonly will have other inflammatory conditions manifesting as symptoms.  There may be other weak links in your chain with the strong possibility of developing other autoimmune diseases.

This can result in a cascade of pain and inflammation and loss of quality of life

SCALE of AUTOIMMUNITY

VIBRANT HEALTH at one end and DISEASE at the other

Where inflammation first appears as a symptom is the weakest link in your metabolic chain.  The location is determined by your physical, chemical and emotional stressors.

There may be a genetic weakness; although, it’s how you live your life that determines if this genetic factor is expressed.

Is Inflammation Pulling on your Chain?

Lets Get REAL !
I watched something last night that I woke up still thinking about this morning.

The Right for Information, Free Speech and Freedom of Choice.

When authority say “ this is how it must be; why don’t we demand evidence to back this order up.

Professors and scientists etc. are saying this or that is true, so let’s check it out.. is it actually true?

Where is the disclosure and information to back it up and make it justifiable?

So question and research so called “facts” yourself. Broaden your perception of reality and critical think outside of the narrow minded narratives that they force feed us.

Now your blinkers are off; see what you come up with from your own “new” perceptions.

I’ll tell you from experience that once you start to do this; you can never unlearn what you find.

Your whole life of learned and programmed perception of what’s “true” and what’s actually the “truth” will begin to unfold.

This step out of the box will begin to open your mind and world in a way that then forces knowing.

We have been brainwashed by repetition; if that all you’ve ever heard, then that’s all your ever going to believe.

The range, width or corridor of allowed information has decreased exponentially with heavy censorship of information.

They only provide the “information” that fits into their agenda for humanity and society.

The more lies and deceit or as I like to call it “theatre” that you reveal the more “truth” you’ll crave.

We have all lost our voice and self sensor our personal beliefs and perceptions so we fit the mould created.

We have become fearful to speak our minds because of reticule from our peers and persecution from our “so called” authority.

How can we make it ok to have a voice and agree that it’s ok to have a different opinion.

To allow someone to say something that you don’t agree with and be ok with that.

Thinking in life has become polar or what I like to call “black and white” thinking.

There is no allowance for the grey area in between.

As authority in history has proven over and over again; they get it wrong, a lot.

How can they tell us; you must “do this” cause I am right.

Therefore you must be wrong; people are forced deeper into the illusion of awareness and ignorance about everything.

The system tells us; this or that is what we must believe.

We can set ourselves free by no longer believing what the “system” in all it’s forms tells us we must believe.

To break free of this unrelenting brainwashing; allowance of critical thinking; contribution of many personal perceptions; along with actual facts, evidence and justifications are necessary.

The censorship and manipulation of information must cease.

When this happens the narrow corridor of allowed thinking will vastly widens to a massive ocean of possibilities.

People will once again be able to stop self censoring everything they think and say and will finally be able to speak without fear.

Ask yourself this one question and then “critical think” your own response. “Where did I form the basis of everything that I believe to be true”??

Then create in your mind or write it down if need be; a flow chart or in other words the origin of your source of belief.

Is it from the tv or media, your doctor maybe your teacher!!! Follow the threads backward from your source.

You will connect the dots and alarm bells and lights will go on.

The problem seems so vast but the solution is actually quite simply.

We all want to be free; let’s just set ourselves free!

Once again we may be able to have conversation and opinion without being attacked and that will be ok.
