Bacterial Triggering of Autoimmunity

With the concomitant explosion of research into the microbiome, and more specifically the gastrointestinal microbiota (GM), showing linkages between specific aberrant patterns (signatures) of dysbiosis and greater prevalence of specific chronic complex metabolic diseases, including autoimmune conditions, there is a natural desire to understand why these relationships may exist, whether they are simply associations or causal, and what mechanisms may underlie such relationships. This article will review some of the known mechanisms by which bacterial organisms in the GM may contribute to immune dysregulation and potentially the development of an autoimmune disorder in an individual.

Natural Treatments for Polycystic Ovary & Metabolic Syndromes

The incidence of metabolic syndrome (MetS), type II diabetes (T2D) and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) has been progressively increasing.
