Pourquoi se soigner par la Micro-immunothérapie ? La Micro-immunothérapie a pour but de soutenir et réguler le système immunitaire à doses infinitésimales non toxiques pour rétablir l’équilibre naturel de l’organisme. Le système immunitaire (S.I.) intervient dans la défense de l’organisme à la fois contre des agents extérieurs nocifs comme les protéines immunogènes, en général virale (antigène), mais aussi dans les phénomènes de régulation interne (en particulier contre les propres constituants de l’organisme que sont les autoantigènes).

L’immunologie a révélé l’existence d’un réseau de cellules immunitaires et de médiateurs cellulaires appelés de façon générale les cytokines, parmi lesquelles sont classés les interférons (IFN), les interleukines (IL), des facteurs anti-tumoraux ou facteurs de nécrose tumorale (TNF), des facteurs de croissance et des chimiokines.

De nombreuses substances étrangères tentent de pénétrer chaque jour dans l’organisme : des germes (virus, bactéries, parasites, champignons), des allergènes, des substances toxiques… sans parler des cellules anormales voire même cancéreuses qu’il faut éliminer.

Contre ces antigènes, le corps possèdent un système immunitaire composé par les globules blancs et par les anticorps afin de les neutraliser et de les éliminer. Pour cela, l’immunité est capable de reconnaître immédiatement ce qui appartient à l’organisme (le soi) et ce qui lui est étranger (le non-soi).

Fibromyalgia Treatment & Learning Center. Are Happy Gut Bacteria Key to Weight Loss? A few years before Super Size Me hit theaters in 2004, Dr. Paresh Dandona, a diabetes specialist in Buffalo, New York, set out to measure the body's response to McDonald's—specifically breakfast. Over several mornings, he fed nine normal-weight volunteers an egg sandwich with cheese and ham, a sausage muffin sandwich, and two hash brown patties.

Dandona is a professor at the State University of New York-Buffalo who also heads the Diabetes-Endocrinology Center of Western New York, and what he observed has informed his research ever since. Levels of a C-reactive protein, an indicator of systemic inflammation, shot up "within literally minutes. " "I was shocked," he recalls, that "a simple McDonald's meal that seems harmless enough"—the sort of high-fat, high-carbohydrate meal that 1 in 4 Americans eats regularly—would have such a dramatic effect.
