I recently read an article in a local paper of interest to the topic of Psoriatic Arthritis. It brought out the identical biological medications used for ailments like, RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis), can also be used for psoriatic arthritis sufferers. It highlighted that there are five distinct kinds of psoriatic arthritis currently known. Sadly, it mentioned, there’s absolutely no cure for psoriatic arthritis.
Conventional treatments involves using nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). Needless to say, the common problems of the drugs and many others like them, are the range of serious side effects that could happen. If you currently use any of these kinds of drugs, you know what I mean. Interestingly, these medications are immunosuppressant drugs that actually suppress the sistema inmunológico. Both psoriasis and arthritis are autoimmune diseases.
This basically means that the body’s ability to differentiate between self and invader is hampered. To put it differently, the body’s first line of defense, the immune system, is imbalanced. On the one hand, a healthy immune system is equally balanced and dynamic. Cellular immunity, which is, what occurs within the cell, involves T-cell and macrophage activity.
Outside the cell, typically involves the actions of antibodies. In a healthy immune system Th1 and Th2 activity switches back and forth between the two answers as needed. However, an inability to respond adequately with a Th1 response may lead to chronic infections and cancerwhile an overactive Th2 response can lead to alergias. The failure of Th1 arm of the immune system along with an overactive Th2 arm is implicated in a huge array of chronic illnesses.
If both of these arms of the immune system could be balanced, by stimulating Th1 and diminishing Th2, then a number of the symptoms related to the chronic illnesses would diminish, or, disappear and we’d have discovered the solution to immune recovery and balance. With over eighty (80) forms of autoimmune diseases currently understood, such an approach would make a substantial difference in the lives of endures and their families.
One remedy for immune system imbalance (Th2 Dominance) is increasing glutathione levels. Glutathione levels in antigen presenting cells determine whether Th1, or, Th2 response patterns predominate. Increasing glutathione levels helps reduce Th2 dominance. Glutathione (pronounced”gloota-thigh-own”) is a naturally produced protein fabricated within every one of the trillion cells in the body. This small protein keeps three crucial protective purposes. It’s the body’s master antioxidant, immune system modulator and powerful detoxifier.
