    Estrogen Can Both Cause And Exacerbate Lupus

    A quick post as a response to a recent argument I had over email with an endocrinologist who follows me on Twitter. His claim was that the causes of Lupus are currently unknown but are likely "multifactorial" and me ascribing such causes to "isolated peculiarities" such as endotoxin (LPS) or...

    Stress (cortisol) Can Cause ANY Autoimmune Condition By Disrupting Gut Barrier

    A great new study that is not afraid to point out the paradox between mainstream medicine's claims of beneficial effects of cortisol and the reality of "autoimmune" conditions more often than not being associated with elevated levels of CRH, ACTH and cortisol. The role of CRH as a causative...

    Anti-adrenaline Drugs Like Clonidine May Prevent Diabetes Type I

    Peat mentioned a few times that the pancreatic damage seen in type I diabetes is caused by prolonged exposure to PUFA, as unsaturated fats are toxic to the insulin-producing beta cells in that organ. Many of the cases of new onset diabetes I occur after a period of extreme exhaustion and/or...

    If there is any doubt in anybody's mind about the role of estrogen as a cause of autoimmune conditions I hope that his will clarify the situation some more. The excerpt below is from the study on adrenals and Alzheimers I posted today but I thought that this excerpt deserves its own thread given...
