Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome (MAS), AutoInflammatory Disease and Inflammation

Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome (MAS)For a long time, people who suffered from the seemingly related disorders known as multiple autoimmune syndrome (MAS) and autoinflammatory disease were thought to be hypochondriacs or lazy when they complained to their doctors about their symptoms: skin rashes, chronic fatigue, joint pain, unexplained fevers, chest pain and abdominal pain just to name a few.

Now, doctors and researchers have organized patients and their symptoms into two primary and related groups:

Painful Psoriasis: MAS & AutoInflammatory DiseaseWhile the two categories have distinct differences, they also have commonalities, the primary one being inflammation. With both types of conditions, the body’s immune system is “confused” and attacks itself.

Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome (MAS) occurs when a person has three or more autoimmune diseases simultaneously and one of them is a skin disorder such as psoriasis, scleroderma or vitiligo.

Autoinflammatory disease is also an autoimmune disorder, and comes under a number of different guises:

  • Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF)
  • Behcet’s disease
  • Neonatal Onset Multisystem Inflammatory Disease (NOMID)
  • Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) receptor-associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS)
  • Deficiency of the interleukin-1 (IL-1) receptor antagonist (DIRA)

These inflammatory diseases cause problems that range from skin rashes, soresabdominal pain and joint pain, unexplained fevers, inflamed blood vessels, adrenal insufficiency /fatigue, inflammation (chronic) is at the root of most human diseases and heart failure.

Chronic inflammation is commonly associated with each type of MAS. It is believed the inflammation encourages T-cellsv, intended to defend the immune system for a short-term assault, to stay “on” and attack the body instead. This causes tremendous damage in various areas of the body depending upon which system the T-cells falsely identify as a harmful invader. If the chronic inflammation is in the brain it can contribute to Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s for example, in the circulation system, heart disease or stroke. If fat cells are chronically inflamed, it begins the process of type 2 diabetes. Inflammation in the gut leads to a host of painful skin disorders, joint diseases and bowel diseases including cancer. Genes become damaged and the immune system’s ability to correctly function is further compromised.

Add into this equation the many toxins present in our modern food chain and environment, plus high-risk behavior such as overeating, a diet high in carbohydrates and bad fats, lack of exercise, smoking, too much alcohol consumption and you have the unhealthy beginnings of MAS. However, there are actions you can take to reclaim your health.

The degree to which multiple autoimmune syndrome and autoinflammatory disease can be remediated, and chronic inflammatory response “turned off”, with lifestyle changes such as an anti-inflammatory diet, supplements and exercise has been area of intense study for several years.

Some of our ProBoost customers have shared two excellent resources written for laymen, that provide enlightening, actionable and scientific information about the tremendous impact of diet, toxins and life choices on our immune system’s function and our health. In fact, one of our customers Endocrinologist gives a copy of the first book to each of her diabetic patients:

  • Clean by Dr. Alejandro Junger, Cardiology & Functional Medicine
  • Grain Brain by Dr. David Perlmutter, Neurology

Multiple Autoimmune Syndrome and AutoInflammatory Disease is not “in your head” or a sentence that you can do nothing about as you will discover in the two books above. No supplement supports healthy immune function like ProBoost Thymic Protein A. Here is a testimonial from a customer whose daughter has MAS.

“My 21 year old daughter has fibro, chronic fatigue, AZOOR, necrobiosis lipoidica, granuloma annulare, and irritable bowel syndrome IBS. We swear that ProBoost has helped with almost all of them. And the best part about ProBoost is it’s natural – no harsh drugs, no side effects. It seems every drug she takes requires yet another to offset the effects of each other. Not so with ProBoost. We are sold!”

ProBoost for Fighting Cancer – The Connection Between Thymic Protein A and Natural Killer T Cells

Beat Breast CancerNo one wants to face cancer. It was even difficult to write this blog about the “Big C”. But cancer has a face – it is someone you know, someone you care about or even yourself. No one wants to face cancer, but everyone wants to beat it.

ProBoost can help.

As the human body ages, the natural immune system can become more vulnerable to diseases and infections. Why does this happen?  As we get older, our thymus gland shrinks and so do the levels of Thymic Protein A (TPA) which are needed to mature critical, Natural Killer T cells (NKT) for the immune system to prevent or stop the chronic inflammation that can fuel disease. The scientific community has identified chronic inflammation as the root cause of many diseases. A recent study out of San Diego discusses the link between inflammation and cancer. ProBoost was developed in clinical trials to increase or supplement Thymic Protein A, thereby boosting the body’s natural immune system response.

What is ProBoost Thymic Protein A?

Thymic Protein A is a complex protein moleculeThymic Protein A (TPA) is the active ingredient in ProBoost and mirrors the properties of natural thymic protein produced by the thymus gland. TPA is a 500 amino acid chain, comprising the entire protein molecule, and allowing the body to utilize it as if it was produced by the body’s own thymus gland.

How ProBoost Thymic Protein A Works

Originally, Dr. Terry Beardsley produced ProBoost to stimulate the immune system for extremes cases of TPA deficiency like those found in HIV and certain kinds of leukemia cases. He studied the thymus gland and was able to isolate a single thymic protein – Thymic Protein A. He found that this protein was necessary for the body to mature T4 lymphocytes (T-cells), Natural Killer (NK) cells, and Natural Killer T-cells (a subset of the NK cells), thus boosting the ability of the immune system to fight infection, viruses, bacteria, tumor fomation and diseases like cancer. Properly deployed, NK cells (Adaptive T-8 cells) provide rapid responses to virally infected cells and tumor formation, usually within three days.

Killer Immune Cells in action against cancer These T-Cells are a special type of white cell matured in the thymus gland. These cells operate by recognizing and targeting infected or tumor cells.  The infected cells are first suppressed and then destroyed.   We are exposed to infections, viruses and cancerous cells every day, but we rarely get sick because of the action of these T-cells. Cancer presents a particular challenge to the immune system as it is adept at making the cells appear normal to the body in the early stages, which is why certain cancers can go undetected until it has advanced.

What happens when we do get sick?

As noted earlier, because the thymus gland shrinks with age we make less Thymic Protein A and mature fewer T-cells. When that happens the immune system’s ability to deal with disease, viruses and infections diminish.  In many adults, the thymus gland is relatively small by age 40. The correlation of age and increased risk of illness is one of the factors, environmental and dietary stress another, as is family predisposition to certain kinds of cancer. In a clinical setting, ProBoost has been shown to increase the number to white blood cells needed to fight cancer, even when an individual is undergoing chemotherapy.

ProBoost has also been shown to improve the functioning of the immune system. Clinical trials have been conducted on other diseases such as AIDS, Cancer, Herpes, Hepatitis-C and Lyme disease. Dr. Beardsley proved that Thymic Protein A boosts levels of T4, T8 and other natural cell killers.

How Should I Take ProBoost – Active Disease or Preventive Measure?

Keep Calm and Fight BackThe Immune System’s own T-cells may be the best hope for many types of cancers. Dr. Beardsley’s studies discovered that ProBoost has the ability to raise the white blood cell count when taken 3-4 daily during the acute disease state and during chemotherapy.

As a preventive measure, 1-2 packets a day of ProBoost is excellent for warding off colds, flu and other viruses as well as giving your body what it needs to keep more Natural Killer T-Cells actively working when a health treat is detected. ProBoost is a safe, natural supplement and can be taken by adults or children.

ProBoost is placed under the tongue to dissolve sublingually and should be taken one hour after meals.  Studies have found no reports of any adverse side effects.
