Immune System Disorders

“One of the biggest shortcoming of the Western biomedical approach is to not actively utilize the body’s natural healing abilities.”

---Dr Javed Hingora

Even a pandemic of Covid 19 magnitude did not really teach the so-called ‘scientific’ world that our immune system is of supreme importance when it comes to fighting any infection. The focus of the world is still on the virus and its mutations, rather than the shortcomings of the human immune system. Our immune system has been and is being damaged and if this does not change, we can expect many such pandemics and infections that do not respond to treatments. In this blog, I would be presenting ideas from a holistic point of view, stressing that it is not the infecting organism, but our immune response that really matters. This explains why a majority (more than 85 percent) recover from Covid 19 easily and the remaining struggle to cope with it. If Covid 19 virus was that lethal, everyone infected would end up in the hospital! Its a pity that the media, scientific bodies and even WHO does not talk enough about keeping our immune systems healthy.

The primary function of our immune system is to defend us against infection-causing organisms and substances that may harm us on entering our body. In fact, it is only if our immune system is weak that an infection can occur. If the immune system does not do this job properly, we see a host of conditions like recurrent infections and slow healing of wounds.

If on the other hand, the immune system overreacts, or acts against our own body, it is called an allergy or an autoimmune disease. This is essentially a confusion in the immune system. It either can’t differentiate between an enemy and a friend or perceives too much of a threat from something harmless. This is the reason why in a small minority of people infected with Covid 19, we see a phenomenon called a cytokine storm, wherein the immune system starts to attack various organs leading to complications. It is still not the virus that kills. Its an immune dysfunction that leads to complications.

So what causes this confusion in the immune system? Here is an explanation from homeopathic philosophy:

It is a result of interfering with normal immune function and development due to a lethal combination of toxic agricultural practices, indiscriminate vaccinations, polluted dairy and meat, environmental toxins, chemicals found in commonly used products, genetically modified foods, indiscriminate and overuse of antibiotics, chemotherapy drugs, wrong lifestyle, poor sleep quality, loneliness, lack of love and stresses caused by our modern way of living. This systematic demolition of the immune system not only leads to a weakened and a confused immune system but also to a host of other chronic diseases like heart disease, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure etc..

The development of a healthy immune system starts with our birth. And our gut microbiome plays a crucial role in this development and functioning of our immune system. Most immune disorders are due to unnatural interference with the normal healthy immune development or function.

Some important factors that negatively influence the immune development and function are:

  1. C section birth
  2. Lack of Breastfeeding
  3. Use of antibiotics
  4. Adverse reactions to vaccinations
  5. Wrong diet (dietary deficiencies, lack of variety, lack of fresh foods, processed foods, preservatives etc.)
  6. Side effects of chemical medications
  7. Environmental toxins
  8. Stress or emotional trauma
  9. Poor quality or insufficient sleep
  10. Lack of exercise
  11. Jet lag
  12. Alcohol
  13. Tobacco
  14. Overuse of sanitizers and antibacterial agents

Common Immune System Disorders

Poor Immune Development or Function causing:

When the immune system is unable to defend the body against infections due to its poor development or due to damage, it leads to the following common conditions:

Recurrent infections like:

  1. Recurrent colds or influenza
  2. Recurrent bouts of coughing
  3. Recurrent fevers
  4. Recurrent ear infections
  5. Recurrent throat infections
  6. Recurrent tonsillitis
  7. Recurrent urinary tract infections
  8. Recurrent painful boils or abscesses
  9. Recurrent herpes outbreaks
  10. Slow healing of injuries.

Allergies:

When the immune system is programmed to react strongly or wrongly to various foods or environmental triggers leading to the following common conditions:

  1. Allergic eye inflammation
  2. Asthma or allergic cough
  3. Blocked nose or mouth breathing
  4. Eczema
  5. Hay Fever or allergic rhinitis
  6. Skin rashes
  7. Urticaria or hives

Food Intolerances:

Some Associated Symptoms And Health Conditions:
(Also see Digestive System Disorders)

  1. Abdominal bloating or gassiness
  2. Acne
  3. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  4. Constipation
  5. Diarrhea
  6. Fibromyalgia
  7. Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  8. Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Autoimmune Diseases:

When the immune system is confused and works against the body, it leads to the following common conditions:

  1. Alopecia (Partial or complete baldness)
  2. Crippled, ridged or deformed nails (an important indicator of autoimmune activity)
  3. Graves' Disease
  4. Graves' Disease
  5. Habitual Abortions
  6. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
  7. Infertility
  8. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD - Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease)
  9. Lichen Planus and Sclerosus
  10. Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  11. Myasthenia Gravis
  12. Psoriasis
  13. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
  14. Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)
  15. Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
  16. Vitiligo

Treatment of immune system disorders under the STEPS Program© and KIDS Program©:

First of all, the whole person is treated, not just the immune disorder. The immune system alone can never be improved, unless the overall health of the person improves. This is what distinguishes a holistic approach from a vaccine- based-antibody-production approach. Everything in the body is interconnected and lifestyle, environment and emotions play a crucial role in disease creation as well as in healing.

Note: Not all of these conditions are curable and response to treatment is limited by the patient’s age and general health condition. Each person responds differently.

How We Treat

Treatment involves 3 essential steps:

Know ----> Heal---->Evolve

To truly heal, one must first know oneself, and all that causes one’s disease. For, it is only after true healing that one evolves to their full potential.

Know ----> Heal---->Evolve

Step 1

Know

Using the Health-O-Meter© Analysis all factors adversely affecting general health, including the immune function are identified. This analysis reveals the following about the person:

  • The person’s unique homeopathic remedy type, body type, sensitivities and associated factors involved in causing this disorder.
  • The current health status based on an analysis of genetic history, birth history, medical history, laboratory tests and evaluation by various holistic experts.
  • Lifestyle factors like diet, sleep, exercise, toxins that contribute to the condition.
  • All therapies, interventions and changes needed to heal and restore normal functioning naturally are determined.
Step 2

Heal

  • With the STEPS Program© in conjunction with programs from PhiloLifeWellbeing.com, one or more of the most appropriate natural therapies are employed to treat the problem and its core causes.
  • Periodic assessments are done to ensure progress and permanency of healing.
Step 3
