Food-Induced Autoimmunity: Tips for Taming Immune System Anarchy

Chronic systemic inflammation and autoimmune reactions underlying many common metabolic, digestive, respiratory, and musculoskeletal disorders.

Delayed type food allergies and sensitivities are major drivers of inflammation. Left unchecked, allergies and sensitivities can lead to immune system “anarchy.”

The challenge for clinicians is that sensitivity patterns are highly individualized, and many common foods which are not problematic for most people, can be highly problematic for some.

This free webinar, Roger Deutsch and Amy Pieczarka explore the role of the innate immune system in delayed type food allergies and sensitivities, in the context of chronic inflammatory conditions.

They share data on newly discovered pathways that lead to food-induced autoimmunity, the role played by neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs), and the ways to apply neutrophil activation assays to identify individual triggers and tailor therapeutic interventions.

The session covers:

  • How food sensitivities and “NETosis” drive chronic inflammatory states.
  • The contribution of unchecked sensitivities to foods, herbs, environmental chemicals, molds, and pharmaceutical substances to many common chronic diseases.
  • Ways in which continual exposure to offending foods and toxins may prime the immune system in ways that render people more prone to COVID-19 and its complications.
  • How to use Alcat testing to detect “hidden” food sensitivities with a high degree of accuracy.
  • Ways to help patients toward a balanced immune response that is strong enough to fend off infection, but not over-reactive so as to cause autoimmunity.
