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!”

Building White Blood Cells with Thymic Protein A During Chemotherapy

White Blood CellBecause the immune system requires Thymic protein to mature new immune cells, it is an essential component in the battle for fighting cancer. However, the thymus gland which produces this protein shrinks as we age and eventually stops producing  Thymic Protein A. Fortunately, thymus extract can be refined to produce active Thymic Protein A.

Cancer treatments with chemotherapy drugs are for a variety of types of cancers. But these drugs have a number of undesirable effects, like hair loss and the destruction of some of the immune cells necessary to fight infection. However, chemotherapy may be a lifesaving necessity.

So how does chemotherapy work and what can you do to mitigate the undesirable effects?

Hair loss during chemotherapyThe rapid proliferation of abnormal cells in the body is how cancer spreads. Chemotherapy introduces one or more drugs in order to kill rapidly proliferating cells. It is a treatment that can be very effective in terminating cancer cells, but it also kills normal, healthy cells, especially targeting cells that also rapidly divide like hair and white blood cells. This is one of the reasons why people subjected to chemotherapy end up bald.

Perhaps the most serious negative effect of chemotherapy is on the impact on another highly proliferate cell – white blood cells (WBC). There are a variety of types of WBC’s but they all have the job as infection stoppers. When infection is present in the body, the number of WBC’s increase to stop the infection before it can get out of control. Without sufficient white blood cells, also called leukocytes, someone undergoing chemotherapy treatments is vulnerable to a host of serious, even life-threatening bacterial or viral infection.

Studies were performed to determine whether thymus extract helps in the prevention of infection during chemotherapy. According to WebMD, thymus extract can be used to “maintain white cell production in cancer patients treated with radiation or chemotherapy”. A nurse who underwent chemotherapy tells her story about taking ProBoost Thymic Protein A and the effect on her treatment.

Cancer and NK cellsAlso the subject of study was that bovine-derived thymus extract, Thymic protein, can help fight cancer by suppressing tumor formation and has been shown to increase cytotoxic activity, improve immune system response, restore lymphocyte function, and activate natural killer cells.

Since the immune system requires a variety of T-cells and B-cells to fight disease and maintain a healthy number of cells and it needs Thymic Protein A to mature new cells, it makes sense that people going through chemotherapy would benefit from thymus extract.

Shingles – A Painful But Avoidable Disease

ProBoost for ShinglesShingles is a painful illness brought on by the varicella zoster virus (VZV), the same virus that causes chickenpox. In addition burning, distinct skin blisters, it may be accompanied by flu like symptoms like headache, fever and pain.

Anyone that has had chickenpox can develop shingles. The virus lays dormant for years within the nervous system following childhood chickenpox. Shingles is most common within the older population striking most often after age 50 and even more commonly after age 60. Some medical experts estimate that people 50% of the population over the age of 85 will get shingles. However, anyone whose immune system is compromised due to age,  illness, cancer therapy or medications that suppress the immune system, such as prednisone, is vulnerable.

Dormancy, the latent stage, is what the individual’s immune system relies on to keep the virus from becoming shingles. However, if the virus becomes activated, it travels along the nerves, surfacing on the skin as painful blisters.  Encouraging to note, is that proper immune response prevents activation of the virus. T cell-mediated-immunity (TCMI) is believed to be the most important factor in preventing shingles. TCMI is the immune system’s method of retaining memory of the initial virus during chickenpox and keeping it in a dormant state. With the addition of new T-cell production, the immune systems’ memory cells, it has the ability to stop the reactivation of the virus.

Shingles painThe human immune system naturally produces antibodies when it defends against a virus but it also responds at the cellular level by sending lymphocytes or T-cells that defend against the virus if it activates. Science believes that the cellular or T-cell response is most important in preventing reactivation of the virus and consequent shingles. Older people, the most likely to get shingles, usually have adequate levels of antibody to the  virus from having had chickenpox, but have a diminished levels of T-cell response due to age related shrinkage of the thymus gland as well as other factors.

Unfortunately, once the immune system weakens,  TCMI loses control and the virus activates resulting in blistering, painful lesions. Early symptoms that precede the blisters include a prodromal period of pain without lesions, numbness and tingling and even itching. If treated in the earliest stages, prior to lesions erupting or within 48 hours of a shingles outbreak, the disease can be somewhat minimized. There is no cure but early treatment with antiviral prescription drugs can accelerate healing and does reduce the risk of complications.

People that contract shingles also risk  facial nerve weakness, meningitis and loss of eyesight. Postherpetic neuralgia pain that results from a bout of shingles can last months, even years.  The shingles vaccine can reduce the chance of developing shingles by 50%. One in four people who have had chicken pox will develop shingles, so getting the shingles vaccine is important to people over the age of 50. People can have shingles breakouts more than once, so even if you have had the virus, be sure and get the vaccination.

In summary, here is what people can do to avoid the chances of activating the virus and minimizing the severity of a shingles outbreak:

  • Minimize Your Risk – Get vaccinated, it cuts the risk of shingles by 50%. People can have shingles breakouts more than once, so even if you have had the virus, be sure and get the vaccination.
  • Take Preventive Steps – Boost your immune system with thymic extract to help prevent activating the virus. According to WebMD, Thymus extract works by improving or boosting the immune system for infections, viruses, including shingles and autoimmune disease.
  • Treat Immediately – If  you do get shingles, get treatment with an anti-viral prescription such as acyclovirfamciclovir, or valacyclovir, within the first 48 hours of a breakout or when the first symptoms occur prior to breakout.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity – Maybe It’s Not All in Your Head

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity  - Tired and in PainMultiple Chemical Sensitivity and the role of Thymic Protein A. Our immune system is remarkable in its ability to keep us healthy; however, it declines with age like the rest of our body. The thymus gland, which produces Thymic Protein A to mature new T-cells, plays a central role in our immune system and decreases in size and functionality over time.

In the early formative years when our bodies are “learning” immunity, “educating” T-cells and producing new ones, the thymus gland is almost the size of the lungs. Starting at about age three, the gland begins to slowly shrink in size until between ages 50-60 when the thymus gland can be as small as a pea. At some point, it is lacking the capability to produce sufficient levels of a critical thymic protein a needed by the immune system to mount an effective immune response.

How Does Thymic Protein A Help for Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Other Conditions

Conditions like Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), chronic fatigue syndrome /chronic fatigue immune disorder (CFS/CFID), fibromyalgia, Lyme disease and other illnesses that have environmental triggers, often involve a compromised immune system. The result is chronic infections, viral impunity and inflammation which, along with the disease process, contribute to debilitating symptoms like pain and fatigue.

Thymus gland - fetal to adultProBoost was originally developed to support the function of the thymus in maturing t-helper lymphocytes (T-cells) for severely immune compromised patients. It worked because synthesized Thymic Protein A has the identical biological activity as the natural form produced by the fully functioning thymus gland.

Thymic Protein A, is an essential substance for cell-mediated immunity which is how our bodies deal with viruses, bacteria, fungal infections and other threats. Clinical studies on cats and dogs, humans and in vitro cells, have all shown significant improvements in how the immune system activates T-4 helper cells. Reported results include:

  • Increased overall immune function
  • Improvements in sleep and energy
  • Reduction of pain from inflammation
How is ProBoost Taken

ProBoost must be taken under the tongue in order to bypass being destroyed by the digestive system. Used sublingually, Thymic Protein A is delivered to the body intact and in biologically active form.

So maybe it’s not all in your head…maybe it’s in your immune system. ProBoost can help.

Thymic Protein A – The Immune System’s Weapon of Mass Destruction

Thymic Protein A Killing a human virusWithin the immune system is the thymus gland, a very specialized organ. If there was no thymus gland, there would be no T-cells to support the immune system in defending the body against infection, viruses, cancer or inflammation.

The thymus gland together with Thymic Protein A produce the immune systems “weapon of mass destruction”, the T-cells. After the neo-natal and teenage years, the thymus decreases in size. The thymus ages, effecting the production of Thymic Protein,  which results in a decrease in immune function. One way to offset some of the decrease of immune function is to supplement Thymic Protein A.

Importance of the Thymus Gland

The thymus gland provides cells (T-cells) to fight infection and helps the endocrine system carry out its task to balance the immune system. The first and foremost duty of the thymus is the propagation and segregation of mature T-cells or T-lymphocytes to assault bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that attack the body. Both T-cells and B-cells are important in the immune reaction and come from the bone marrow.  While B-cells are fully mature whether they leave or stay in the bone marrow, the T-cells must travel to the thymus gland to grow. There are three diverse classes of fully grown T-cells:

  • Immune system cellsT-4 Helper Cells: Trigger additional immune cells and provoke the manufacture of antibodies
  • T-8 Cytotoxic (Killer) Cells: Guided by the T-4 cells, assault and wipe out microorganisms and cancer cells
  • T-8 Suppressor Cells:   Stops the T-8 cell attack

T-cells must be completely mature in order to perform accurately. The key to a longer, healthier life is an improved immune system response against assailants.  This is true for all immune cells.

Origin of Thymic Protein A:

When Terry Beardsley, PhD discovered Thymic Protein A (TPA), the thymic supplements that were available at that time did not target a precise part of the thymus.  The first thymus supplement to call attention to the T-4 Helper cells is Thymic Protein A.    T-4 cells regulate every immune cell, and together with the stimulation of antibodies, are vital because they trigger the entire immune system. Not to interrupt the natural function of the T-4 cells, Dr. Beardsley’s objective was to focus on escalating their actions.

Action of TPA:

After the T-cells reach the thymus gland and mature, their biological corridor can be tracked. In the thymus gland, the cells are activated and programmed by an effect of a certain thymic protein.  Since Thymic Protein A is particular to a precise transmitters and the T-4 receptor, it is superior to other thymic hormones and extracts.  Longevity, stamina, health, energy and immune function are boosted when a person takes thymic protein a due to the specific action on maturing T-cells.

An average dose of 4 micrograms (mcg) of Thymic Protein A taken under the tongue as a nutritional supplement in powder form is adequate to reinforce the immune system. TPA can be taken 1 to 3 times a day in higher doses and has never shown side effects. This is essential to people taking TPA for reoccurring or stubborn infections, inflammatory disease states and for chemotherapy patients to maintain white blood cell counts.

Lyme Disease Treatment with ProBoost Thymic Protein A

Stop Lyme Disease with ProBoost

Lyme disease treatment is critical in the first 24 hours after being biten.  If you know about Lyme disease or someone that has it, you have seen first hand how debilitating, long lasting and expensive it can be. Medical bills, loss of work, health and energy can be devastating. But did you know that Lyme disease treatment can prevent, or stopped in the early stages of the disease, or that even after contracting, it can be treated and that serious symptoms can be mitigated?

So how do you “Beat the Bite”? With a powerful,  naturally occurring amino acid protein called Thymic Protein A. Tick season carries an especially high risk, particularly in certain areas. Early prevention and treatment can spare suffering and expense. If you think you are at risk for Lyme disease or suspect you have been bitten, keep Thymic Protein A on hand.

Those suffering from Lyme disease might also experience active chronic virus infections like the Herpes related viruses Epstein Barr (EBV) or HHV-6. These infections can lead to neurological complications such as multiple sclerosis, mesial temporal lobe epilepsy, status epilepticus and/or mimic chronic fatigue syndrome. Fortunately, clinical studies found these viruses and infections can be addressed with Thymic Protein A,  found in ProBoost. Thymic Protein A prevents the spread of the viral infection and may even stop it in the first 24 hours.

 What Is Lyme disease?

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that spreads through the human body via the bite of blacklegged ticks. Blacklegged ticks become carriers of the bacteria when they feed on deer or mice that are infected with Lyme disease. These ticks carry the bacteria called Borrelia burgdorferi that is present in their systems after they bite and draw blood from infected deer or mice. When infected ticks bite humans, the bacterium is transferred, resulting in Lyme disease.

Since their discovery in the town of Old Lyme, Connecticut in 1975, infected ticks have been found in the northeastern United States, Wisconsin, Minnesota and northern California. Those who live in or frequently visit grassy and heavily wooded areas where blacklegged ticks are found are far more prone to Lyme disease.

How Do You Know When You Are Infected With The Disease?

If you have contracted Lyme disease, the first thing that is noticeable is a rash that resembles a bull’s eye. The tick bite’s rings of redness cause this ‘bull’s eye’. As the infection spreads, you might suffer from fever, headache, muscle and joint aches, stiffness in neck and fatigue. Lyme disease becomes difficult to diagnose if the initial tick bite goes unnoticed.

Moreover, the symptoms are similar to those of flu and are often be confused with viral infections. If left untreated for months, Lyme disease can lead to abnormalities in the joints, heart, and nervous system. Lyme disease has three stages:Lyme disease bulls eye rash

  • Stage One
    • Classic bulls-eye rash (called erythema migraines at the site of the bite)
    • Generalized symptoms of fatigue, chills, fever, headache, muscle, joint aches and swollen lymph nodes
  •  Stage Two – Develops over a few weeks
    • Loss of the muscle tone on the face called Bell’s Palsy
    • Severe headaches and neck stiffness due to meningitis
    • Shooting pains
    • Heart palpitations and dizziness
    • Joint pain in large joints similar to arthritis pain
  •  Stage 3 – Can develop weeks, months or years after a tick bite
    • Intermittent bouts of arthritis
    • Severe joint pain and swelling, fibromyalgia like symptoms 
    • Neurological complaints including numbness or tingling in hands and feet ending with sensory nerve damage, MS like symptoms
    • Chronic Fatigue

 The good news is the Western Blot assay antibody test is currently a reliable test for Lyme disease.

Connection between Thymic Protein A and Lyme disease treatment

When the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium infects the human body, it attacks the B-lymphocytes and other components of the immune system, which are responsible for creating the antibodies. Thymic Protein A is required to mature the T-cells. These T-cells in turn activate the B-cells that are the anti-viral part of the immune system. White blood cells then attack the virus and bacteria in acute and chronic viral infections. In addition to cold and flu viruses and respiratory and gastrointestinal virus infections, chronic Lyme disease defense requires Thymic Protein A.

ProBoost Direct for Lyme Disease
