Infectious disease can trigger the development of autoimmunity. Viruses, parasites, mycobacterium, bacteria, and mycoplasma have all been shown to trigger autoimmune disorders. Dr. Heather Moday will discuss the immune mechanisms underlying autoimmunity, the role dysbiosis plays in promoting pathogenic triggers, and how to diminish infection-driven autoimmunity.
This presentation will explain the relationship between bacteria and autoimmune disorders by describing how bacteria can trigger an autoimmune response. It will also address the effect of cumulative bacteria when developing an autoimmune disorder. It will define the specific types of bacteria that can trigger these kinds of autoimmune responses.
She will also discuss targeted anti-inflammatory treatments for pain caused by autoimmune disorders, along with the manipulation of the helper T cell in order to improve the outcome of an autoimmune disorder. She will introduce various substances and remedies that can be used to lessen or treat the symptoms brought on by these diseases. This course is recommended to anyone looking to improve their treatment of autoimmune diseases in their homeopathic practice by helping you understand the root of these diseases.
