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!”

Fibromyalgia and ProBoost

Fibromyalgia and ProBoost – Reducing Inflammation

Inflammation and Fibromyalgia painFibromyalgia is considered the second most common rheumatologic disorder, next to osteoarthritis. It is a disorder that causes severe, chronic pain throughout the body at trigger points, as well as severe chronic fatigue with is also found in Lupus and Lyme disease suffers. Secondary symptoms include sore throat, tender nodes, cognitive difficulty and headache and sleep difficulties.

Despite affecting millions, researchers do not fully understand its cause. It is thought to be caused by dysfunction at the hypothalamic-pituitary axes, a control center for endocrine and immunomodulation.

Additionally, several autoimmune mechanisms have been associated with fibromyalgia and the thymus plays a critical role in mediating these. An imbalance between two lymphocytes which mature in the thymus, Th1 and Th2, and their local effects is thought to cause many of the symptoms associated with this disease. Th1 and Th2 cells are self-regulating. Th1 cells promote the maturation of additional Th1 cells, while suppressing the maturation of Th2 cells. Th2 self-regulates in the same way.

However, Th1 cells have a pro-inflammatory effect, and inflammation is the leading cause of pain. An imbalance which promotes Th1 maturation and suppresses Th2 maturation will lead to the inflammation and pain characteristic of fibromyalgia.

The thymus’ role is to maintain the appropriate balance between these two cell types. It does this though the action of cytokines (interleukins), chemicals which control the maturation process. Cells within the thymus secreting Interleukin-10 (IL-10) will suppress Th1 formation and promote Th2 formation. Cells secrete Interleukin-12 (IL-12) or another cytokine known as Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha (TNF-a), will promote Th1 formation and suppress Th2 formation. In this way, the thymus is able to regulate the inflammatory response properly.

But what happens when the thymus is unable to regulate the balance of the Th1 and Th2 and inflammation is not confined to an appropriate response? Science now knows that inflammation is at the root of the disease process and autoimmune dysfunction. This results in a host of potential medical problems like heart disease, cancer, Crohn’s or autoimmune issues like fibromyalgia and arthritis.  As we age, the thymus shrinks, producing less and less Thymic Protein A essential to bringing new T-cells online. That means it loses its ability to mature new T-cells and regulate the existing ones.

This is where ProBoost Thymic Protein A (TPA) may help. By supplementing TPA in the correct manner, the thymus gland is able to mature new T-cells, which supports proper immune system function and in turn helps to regulate the inflammation process. Since fibromyalgia is characterized by pain and pain is linked to inflammation, it has been found by people suffering from fibromyalgia that TPA can be beneficial and in some cases produces very noticable relief.

In the acute stage of fibromyalgia or any critical immune dyficent response, taking ProBoost 3 times daily is suggested. When pain, inflammation, infection or low white blood cell count is controlled, the amount can be reduced to 1-2 times daily according to what works for each person.

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.
