Biofilms Role in the Development of Autoimmune Diseases

autoimmune diseases biofilms Apr 17, 2023

Some studies suggest that biofilms may play a role in the development of autoimmune diseases. For example, research has shown that biofilms can activate the immune system by producing certain molecules that can trigger an autoimmune response. Additionally, some studies have suggested that biofilms may be involved in the development of chronic infections, which have been linked to the development of autoimmune diseases. 

Why do biofilms cause autoimmune issues?  The immune system knows that there is a pathogen in the body and is trying to destroy it. The biofilm is protecting the pathogen so the immune system and medications cannot get to it.  The immune systems only option is to try and remove the tissue where the biofilm is, this is like a surgeon removing the area where cancer is found.  In order to remove the infected tissue, the immune system attacks the tissue around the biofilm.  This method rarely works as the biofilm is always expanding and creating more problem areas.  

The key to long-term remission from autoimmune issues is to address the biofilm and the pathogens protected inside it. 

Step 1. Destroy the biofilm with a fibrolytic 

Step 2. Kill the pathogens with antimicrobials. It is important to use a broad spectrum antimicrobial because pathogens will usually protect bacteria, viruses, mold and parasites 

Step 3. Use a binder to remove pathogens 

Step 4. Rebuild the autonomic nervous system which has been overwhelmed by the continues infection 

Step 5. Rebuild any nutritional deficiencies  

This process will take 8-12 months to complete. The end results is remission and tissue regeneration. 

It is important to realize  that other chronic issues are also linked to biofilms including; EBV, HPV, Herpes, Lyme’s disease, cardiac issue, atherosclerosis, GI issues and more.
