Fire in the Hole Intestinal Permeability, The Development of Autoimmune Disease, and a Comprehensive Approach to Healing the Cut
Autoimmune diseases are a primary cause of morbidity and mortality in the industrialized world. That means it’s in our offices every day. The number of people diagnosed with an autoimmune disease is increasing exponentially in our country. Estimates are that anywhere from 3 to 7 out of every 10 new patients coming into your office are suffering from an autoimmune mechanism (whether it has been recognized and diagnosed or not). The volume of information now of the underlying mechanisms that set the stage and contribute to the development of autoimmune disease is overwhelming.
