As an Autoimmune disorder sufferer myself (lupus) I am really happy to see this..gives me hope that at some point, I can come off the horrible
methotrexate I have to take every week to control my immune system.
methotrexate is not a nice medicine, it does control Lupus though, by inhibiting Folate metabolism. It is considered an antimetabolite and the med
has long term side effects. The vaccination works a different way, it blocks part of the immune system which means you might have some issues with
I have the lupus genes, but I also have reduced folate metabolism naturally. So unless I take folate supplements on a regular basis, I probably won't
get lupus or the Spondylitis. RA is also another problem in the family and I have genes for that too, the same thing goes for that. I do take the
active form of methylfolate about once a week, I tried it every day and it was too much. But once a week works great. I take methyl B12 with it.
Sometimes the gene corrections actually protect us, but evidently the people doing the genetics research on methylation are not tying this together
My cousin died of lupus, RA plagued my sister for many years before she died at forty years old, she was cripled up pretty good, my brother had
Spondylitis active and they wanted to kill his immune system, but I told him just to give up the calcium supplements he was taking and it went into
remission. He just has the damage that occurred while on calcium. Taking calcium supplements can fire cells up and if you have these autoimmune
issues it can make them worse. Calcium is present on receptors and along with glutamate at the other point, it fires up the ion pump to the cells.
That may confuse people, but I cannot put it any simpler than that. WE need adequate calcium, but too much can give us problems. Folate is found in
dark green leafy veggies, some people cannot eat much of those. Glutamate and glutamine are interchangeable in the body, moderate consumption and
watch not to eat too much aged food.
