My last post was on the subject of NIDS. NIDS stands for Neuro Immune Dysfunction Syndrome and plays a part in the state of health of every family in America. NDIS are acquired disorders that impact the body and the brain.
To better understand NIDS it refers to a group of illness that are the result of how the immune system and nervous system relates to one another in chronic conditions. You may want to go back to my previous post on NIDS in order to bring you up to date on the various names of the conditions.
I just returned from a trip where I spoke to 300 members of IACT on this very subject. I want to share the ”what to do” message. NIDS are normally treated with steroids and ibuprofen (Advil, Children’s Advil/Motrin, Medipren, Motrin, Nuprin, PediaCare Fever etc.) Ibuprofen is used for the treatment of mild to moderate pain, inflammation and fever caused by these diverse diseases. It is also used for treating menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea), osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
I have heard from or spoken to several people who previously suffered with one or two forms of NIDS but were able to stop the process by addressing their digestive system first. They added supplemental digestive enzyme with meals (cutting down the swelling from allergy type foods), protease (systemic) enzymes between meals (assist with chronic inflammation and taking waste out of the cells) and probiotics before bed (balancing the microorganisms in the body environment). This obviously works because 80% of our immune system is located in the digestive tract and most inflammation begins in the digestive system during poor digestion. I have formulated products to address the small intestine in rebuilding the mucosal lining for this very reason.
What happens to one who was able to change their bowel condition for several years but when suffering an injury was given a prescribed ibuprofen for their injury? You probably guessed it; he began suffering from the “old” symptoms once again. Now, he starts over by healing the small intestine first and then after 21 days returns to the supplemental formulas that kept him symptom free for several years.
About 1 million Americans have IBD, and 30,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. … In the United States, it’s thought that as many as 100,000 kids younger than 18 years old have Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
All these various symptoms of NIDS are all connected. An example is the 7.5 million Americans who suffer from Psoriasis. You may not be aware but psoriasis can lead to Psoriatic Arthritis (pain without swelling). If that were not bad enough it is found with those suffering heart attacks, stroke and Type 2 diabetes.
Our digestive system is one and the same with our brain and they speak through our nervous system hence Neuro Immune Dysfunction or Disease Syndrome. There is another word which means the same thing it is “psychoneuroimmunology”. Your body systems hear what your beliefs say or you think!
How does one get beyond bodily illness? You have to have a base from which to begin. I can only answer from my own experiences and those who have come to me for help.
• Change your mind- think positive or loving thoughts. Forgiveness works!
• Address your digestive system with supplemental digestive enzymes and thereby you address your immune system.
• Balance your bodily environment with healthy bacteria (probiotics).
• Keep your blood healthy with the removal of waste from the cells (protease enzymes).
