La soluzione autoimmune. Previeni e affronta le infiammazioni, i disturbi e le malattie autoimmuni

Amy Myers

editore: Gribaudi

pagine: 480

Oltre il 90% della popolazione soffre di infiammazioni o di disturbi autoimmuni. La dottoressa Amy Myers - specializzata nelle malattie autoimmuni e riconosciuta come leader nella medicina funzionale - offre con La soluzione autoimmune un programma di 30 giorni per prevenire e invertire un ampio raggio di sintomi e malattie di natura infiammatoria. Il suo metodo si basa su quattro principi fondamentali: Eliminare i cibi tossici, come zucchero e caffeina, e quelli infiammatori, come i latticini, il glutine e i cereali, che interrompono l'apparato digerente. Introdurre integratori e alimenti ricostituenti, come proteine, grassi sani e probiotici per proteggere l'intestino. Identificare le tossine ambientali contenute nei prodotti di uso quotidiano come shampoo, sapone, cosmetici, detergenti e altri prodotti per la casa. Curare le infezioni di origine autoimmune e intanto alleviare lo stress mentale, emotivo e fisico che esasperano la risposta del sistema immunitario alle tossine esterne.

Clinical Immunology

Angela Hall, Chris Scott
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press

pagine: 360

Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, and research into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible. The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. Clinical Immunology gives the new biomedical scientist an insight into the function of the immune system, the front line of defence against pathological disease, and the diagnostic techniques used to identify associated malfunctions and disorders. By examining the key immunological principles and scientific basis of laboratory techniques with a focus on the biomedical scientist's role in the diagnostic laboratory, the reader is provided with everything needed to prepare for a specialist qualification in immunology. Current tests, the rationale behind their use, the technologies employed, and the quality measures applied are illustrated by specific case studies showing how the clinician interprets the results to help the patient. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Clinical Immunology features: For registered adopters of the book: - Figures from the book, available to download For students: - Answers to self-check and end of chapter questions - Video podcasts including interviews with practicing biomedical scientists and 'in the lab' footage showing biomedical science in practice

Interactions of Diet, Genetics, and Inflammation

Bharat B. Aggarwal, David Heber

editore: CRC Press Inc

pagine: 368

The interaction of immune function and nutrition underlies the low-grade chronic inflammation involved in the etiology of many common obesity-associated and age-related chronic disease conditions. This close interaction is the genesis of the term immunonutrition, which represents a new interdisciplinary field of nutritional and medical research. Immunonutrition: Interactions of Diet, Genetics, and Inflammation introduces the breadth of this field, which implicates nutrition in both immune function and in the etiology, prevention, and treatment of common diseases influenced by inflammation and immune imbalance, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, asthma, autoimmune diseases, and common forms of cancer. The book begins by reviewing the basic mechanisms of immunity and cellular mechanisms of cytokine activation. It discusses the effects of dietary fat intake and changes in Western diet and lifestyle linked to inflammation. It also describes the interaction of genetics and environment in the modulation of immune function and inflammation, and addresses exercise and skeletal muscle as an endocrine and immune organ. The book reviews the entire spectrum of inflammation and cancer from causation to its role in tumor therapy. It examines abdominal obesity and metabolic diseases, interactions between nutrition and autoimmunity in systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis, and inflammation associated with type 2 diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, Alzheimer's disease, and asthma. Considering potential nutrition-based treatments, the book explores approaches for reducing abdominal obesity, anti-inflammatory effects of phytochemicals, practical strategies for increasing fruit and vegetable intake, and anti-inflammatory properties of spice phytonutrients. In addition, it explores how uninformed food choices related to fats and oils create a balance of tissue-selective signals that produce harmful health outcomes and how to restore a healthy balance.
