There is an strong link between CRC and autoimmune diseases. Candida Albicans can suppress cell-mediated immunity and down regulate the suppressor cells. The suppressor cells are those that regulate an immune response against our own tissues and organs.
Wouldn’t this tie into adrenal fatigue/hypothyroid since the endocrine systems play an important role in regulating the immune system through hormones?
From my understanding it’s almost impossible to NOT have a compromised immune system by the time CRC happens, since a faltering immune system is what allows it to get out of control. To me this suggests adrenal/thyroids are a component to solving this puzzle – tail chasing: what came first scenarios. I’m leaning towards the endocrine systems being the first to crash in the chain reaction but, that just this week. ha!
As always, Jorge thank you for sharing your generous and informative insight.
Natacha – you are correct in how leaky gut is part of this syndrome from my understanding but, I wouldn’t say foreign particles since they are mostly large molecule food particles the body doesn’t recognize as food and mounts an immune response to what it thinks are invaders. Think leaky gut causes much of the histamine reactions typical of CRC sufferers.
