    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    Auto Immune Disease

    BB,

    Did you know AID (Auto Immune Disease) is prevalent in those of us with European bloodlines?

    Like Native Americans are well known for Diabetis, High Cholesterol, and Meditarrian are known for blood disorders.

    The Auto Immune System is strongly connected to the production of white blood cells within the spinal column. For 10 Years I was diagnosed with Lupus, (Which is AID) 5 years with MS, (Again AID) diagnosed by bloodwork: ANA, C3, C4, Complete Chem Profile, because of the above average results I was then subjected to MRI's which showed spinal plaque and white matter on my brain, consistant with AID... The third and final test was the Spinal Tap. Extracting cells from the spine's bone marrow. This show an over production of white blood cells which results in auto immune disease, as the white cells attack my body, treating the body as an enemy. Because of this, I am prone to catch any and everything as my systems are constantly being attacked.

    Interesting to note: Back in the 70's when the Federal Government used me and other unwanted's for lab rats, testing drugs on us... They found a connection between a strain of Horse Serum and Lupus... When a class action suit was filed in the 90's... this was brought to light. Inccidently... the class action law suit filed on behalf of we, the unwanted, lab rats... Was just a transference of funds between Government and Big Pharmacutical's for further testing and research. I'm certain that children are still be used as lab rats...

    Just sharing a little knowledge on Auto Immune Disease...

    Hugs,
    Bonnie
