What is 'Autoimmune Diseases'?
From a doctor to doctors and the public, let me explain:
Many degenerative conditions that we doctors do not understand are labeled "autoimmune diseases." It literally means the human body is attacking itself without a good cause --- at least a cause that should be clear to us in medicine. And since we have never understood dehydration to be as a disease-producing state of human body physiology, we have never come across a simple and natural solution to this category of conditions --- at least until now.
I studied one of these conditions, which has received the label of "lupus", and published my findings in the book "ABC of Asthma, Allergies and Lupus". I explained why I believe autoimmune diseases should be viewed as conditions produced by persistent unintentional dehydration and its metabolic complications.
In dehydration, and the use of some essential elements as antioxidants to neutralize toxic waste that cannot be excreted because of low urine production, there comes a time when certain vital elements become scarce within the human body reserves. However, some of the less vital components of the body have these elements in their assimilated forms. These tissues need to give up some of their precious elements for use in other parts of the human body. The whole process is based on PRIORITIES and the IMPORTANCE of the elements that are scarce. Free water being one of the most important elements for normal functions to be possible in the human body. Under these circumstances and in this category of conditions, the human body is forced into a cannibalistic state of physiology. Such cannibalism can cause autoimmune diseases, such as lupus. It is water deficits which was the first cause.
The chemical controllers in the human body begin to break down certain tissues to compensate for the missing elements the human body needs -- especially in the brain. The human body always puts the brain first. For example, when the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas are fragmented and destroyed, not only will the ensuing diabetes increase the level of sugar in circulation for the brain to use as energy source, but the process will also dehydrate the other tissues of the human body and make their water content available for the needs of the brain and the nervous system.
The human body will then shut down one by one those organ systems to continue the cannibalistic state of survival physiology, while we doctors continue to "witch hunt" the actual cause, while desperately treat the symptoms and signs of dehydration and chronic dehydration with the mistaken protocol and solid-drugs paradigm. Until the miserable patients died of brain death in the hands of so-called prescriptions from us.
There are some neurological conditions that follow the same logic, such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson's disease, and Lou Gehrig's disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).
They will be explain in chapter 10, which deals with the human brain. AIDS is another condition that I believe finds a better logic as an autoimmune disease, rather than a viral disease, within the disciple of human body physiology.
Dehydration Is The Cause of Pain, Disease, Decay, and Premature Death.
A schematic presentation of the sequence of events in water regulation of the human body at times of sever dehydration, is available at Figure 7.4, page 123, "Water :For Health, For Healing, For Life"
