Auto Immunity, Functional Medicine, and hope

Did you know Auto immunity is frequently seen in those with ASD or Sensory Processing Disorders? It is! And with 1 out of 5 people with it. You NEED to learn how to prevent it, identify it, and if need be reverse it. Therefore, PLEASE check out the series Betrayal FOR FREE! Now- next week.

IBS Awareness Month

In 1997 the International Foundation for Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders declared every April to be Irratible Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Awareness Month. The biggest reasons I am very thankful for this. Is because 1. It shows that the traditional medical field admits it’s a legit real issue, 2.  It works towards important entire world accurate awareness and research for it. 3. It helps Sensory Processing Disorders also get a real reputation as well. As you may know in the past (And still some today, Unfortunetly) . Both IBS and SPD at times can be seen as non existant. / Not a big deal. At least according to some traditional medicine mindsets. Regardless, of how wrong. That may be.

IBS is especially bad for those with a combination of SPD with atleast 1 additional co-morbid diagnosis.  So, those who have ASD and SPD for example have particular difficulties with this Digestive Sensory Disorder.  Another words.  IBS is a Sensory disorder and sometimes a sensory Processing Disorder sub type/ branch of SPD. Although, modern or traditional medicine thinks about 25% (Tops) of the world has IBS. Functional medicine actually believes that percent is way to low. And it is in reality higher. I agree, it is higher. I’m not sure. How much though.

 

Sure IBS may not kill us. But, there still real problems. And it is not only in your head literally not figuratively. If at all.  And even the parts of them that maybe in our head literally. IBS symptoms and needs need just as much recognition and respect as any other parts of these differences.  After all. We can’t ignore the micro biome brain connection. Right!?

What we don’t need is – blaming thoughts, comments, or excuses coming from yourself or ANYONE ELSE. And especially not ignorance or avoidance from others/ the individual with them.

While it’s true IBS has things in common with conditions like Colitis, Chrohns, Irratible Bowel Disease, and certain other conditions. IBS is ignored far more frequently. And that effects everyone with it. Because when it’s ignored, research is less. Seriousness of it seams lower. And the need for awareness, solutions, and services. Are harder to come buy. And as I’ve shown in certain posts. On my blogs.  IBS is certainly not a condition to laugh at or ignore. And NOT just because it could kill.

Here you can find some solid basics on it though.  I don’t love how the below URL states some things. And it’s missing some key facts. But, to be honest. I looked awhile. And couldn’t find any 1 URL that I loved to help you learn about IBS.  But, this url is pretty good.

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/irritable-bowel-syndrome/basics/risk-factors/con-20024578

The other conditions mentioned above get more acceptance from society because in traditional medicine they are thought of as more deadly. Also, sometimes those conditions don’t always change what you can or cannot eat. However, that’s likely, slowly changing too.

Functional medicine  however, treats IBS as a more common condition. Because lifestyle choices and being healthy can often significantly improve (If not cure in the FM mindset) the quality of life of someone with IBS. Also, Functional Medicine exists to serve where traditional medicine fails or could use more work.

Because of the severity of Colitis, Chron’s, and other Irratible Bowel Diseases.  Modern medicine, serve patients with these conditions pretty effectively.

I would say my mindset is Integrative. Which buy the way, (Shh! Don’t tell anybody this. Okay!?) is the best/ only kind to have- if you ask me.! 😉

 

Lol.

My book(s), will cover this topic with more depth.

The Bowel Movement – That get’s STUCK

Need a visual of what constipation inside of you looks like?  No prob!  Want to see what keeps it moving? Or why you might get constipated?  (There ARE other root causes to what causes the constipation-not mentioned, here as well) .

Constipation and IBS are two reasons to eat healthy and possibly consider/be on 1/more special diets.  Can you think of other reasons too?

For a complete picture make sure to check out my last two IBS Digestion posts on here as well. Including their brief videos. And don’t forget to tell me what you think in the comments section below!

Brain Gut Visual

Need to see the IBS  (Irratible Bowel Syndrome) Brain Gut connection? No Problem!  Check this couple minute u tube video out. After watching this do you see how SPD and IBS are both sensory related now? In SPD your brain gets miscommunication regarding your sensory triggers too.  The triggers don’t just come in through your gut with SPD though.  And in SPD your body doesn’t react normal or in a healthy way regarding incoming triggering information either.

However, your IBS symptoms defiantly don’t only have to be coming from your gut/stomach however. But, that’s for another discussion.   This can be caused buy Stress, Food sensitivities, lack of good bacteria, and more.

Thanks Nathan Devery!

 

Understand? To get a more complete understanding make sure to see my two additional recent Irratible Bowel Syndrome Visual posts and there utube videos on this blog.

Irratible Bowel Syndrome IS a REAL issue – Here’s your FIRST Visual

Research shows IBS (Otherwise known as Irratible Bowel Syndrome)  effects 58 million people in the US.  With a 2 to 1 Women to man ratio. Most people with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Autism have it. And numerous others with a large variety of other conditions also do.  From MCS, Celiacs, ADHD, PTSD, Anxiety disorder’s, Dyspraxia, Dysgraphia, Intestinal permeability (Otherwise known as Leaky Gut), Candida,  SIBO, Neurological Differences, Gut Dysbiosis, Gulf War Syndrome, Depression, and  many more.

 

Watch this  video only till the host is done showing you the insides of a colon. Although, the host is accurate that typically IBS and it’s symptoms don’t kill people. It can. 1 example of how it could kill someone (And Did)  is shown in an article on my nontoxic4us  blog post called, “Pooping is no laughing matter!”  IBS symptoms include internal inflammation that may or may not be seen or felt inside of you/externally (However,  often, it is felt).  Enough internal inflammation can cause all kinds of problems- especially if it hangs around too long.  Including Cancer. An external common symptom/consequence (Especially if Constipated/and most likely if you have ASD too) is bloating.

What’s up with Processed foods?

You hopefully here allot if you’ve been following me and the conferences I’ve invited you too (via my Onlineconferences4us blog) to eat real and whole foods. And possibly to skip the processed stuff. But do you know why that is? And is all processed food bad for you? Or simply just not good for you? And if not, what is safe? And what isn’t? Here are the answers.

But first. There are two definitions of processed foods. One is any food that isn’t required to be and cooked before consuming. The second definition is the one this post and most people mean when saying anything about real food. Which is any food that isn’t fresh nuts, fruits, meat, poultry, or veggies. And anything with more then 1/2 ingredients. So, frozen veggies don’t count as processed food even though the veggies have changed to a frozen state and are slightly less nutritious possibly then there fresh refrigerated equivalents.

Whole, real foods ARE ideal for you to have as much as possible. Few processed foods are really good for you. And everything is dependent on your individual needs. And what you’d otherwise be eating. So relative partly due to lifestyle.

Assuming any possible processed food item( s) don’t have any nasty sprays added on them like glyphosate/ GMO and no unhealthy ingredients like dyes, sugar, corn syrup, preservatives, ect. Processed food is well, processed. Meaning taken out of nature’s original state and mixed up some if not a lot already for you. So, some of your digestive work was done for you prior to ingesting it. Which of course helps you since it’s often pre cooked or prepped for you at least some if not entirely. Making your prepared time possibly allot easier if not non existent.

Keeping in mind that sometimes

But, often. Especially with those with weakened or challenged immune systems. Processed food in at-least 1 way is actually harder to digest. Because,- your body has a more difficult time identifying the ingredients and then not knowing sometimes what to do with the food item(s). It can be tricked if certain ingredients are present or if you have a sensitivity to 1 of the ingredients in that food item as well.

Other reason’s they state to avoid these processed foods are the following.

It’s disabling your advanced digestion capabilities (Not stretching them another words).

You don’t know everything going into your body. Even if your a pro at reading labels. And who is now a days!?

Sometimes there more expensive due to the convenience.

They discourage u from having real cooking skills. An important life skill.

U miss out on natures candy./ the taste and benefits of real food.

Your money supports the wrong causes. Not farmers but, packing and manufacturing companies. And possibly being indirectly pro GMO. Even if the item is GMO free. For the most part. Occasionally to convenience prep services.

Higher likelihood you’ll have or get health problems immediately, later on, or both. Sometimes u won’t identify with till later on.

There are a few (at MOST) partial to complete product exceptions to this rule.
