Listen up, /sci/. I'm so fucked. I got some bullshit arthritis overnight. Pic related is a stock pic, but it looks very similar.
I've seen pics of how it ends and it is horrible.
Please explain to me, how in the fuck can the body attack itself? It is appalling that doctors are Ok with this stupid "autoimmunity" explanation. I'd rather believe that the body IS in fact attacking something deep into the joints. Or maybe something in our environment is triggering it.
Is there any relevant investigation trying to shed some light on this? Apparently doctors are fine with treating diseases of UNKNOWN causes with chemotherapy drugs from the 1950s.

Evolutionarily, it is much easier to live with an immune system that attacks too much rather than one that attacks too little

It usually happens at a late age. Evolution wouldnt care if you have disabled hands at 50 when you survived childhood and popped out 10 children.

Doctors don’t actually understand what is going on, scientists do quite well.

Protip: you might be eating shit food

I'm not nearly that old. This is not osteoarthritis.

I had one of these spontaneous arthritis things. I couldn't walk without assistance for a good four months and I was in constant awful pain. Then it went away entirely and I haven't so much as felt a twinge in years. Don't give up hope anon
>>
>>13066964
I'm eating healthy, /anon/.
But you might be onto something. Something bad might be in the food.

I thought auto immunity was pretty well understood, What makes you think it is bullshit?
>>
>>13066982
It has been 2 months already.
Got blood tests done, but my female GP is retarded and completely dismissed my hands problem. She suggested me to go to an specialist to further investigate my slightly high sugar levels.

Why are female doctors so incompetent?

This disease is not the product of evolution. I think it has been induced by something I've been exposed to.

All diseases are the product of evolution. Same with accidents. You didn't evolve to survive falling off your roof too bad.
>>
>>13067031
The causes were established long ago, people chose to reject them because it faulted their behavior. For over 2000 years from Galen to Gilbert two principle contributors to inflammation were noted. First, meal frequency. The lack of fasting and frequent intake of meals prevents healing. Mechanisms are now establish that prove their long heralded benefits which used to be mocked. Second, sexual excess causes autoimmune disease. This is seen quite clearly with the elevation of prostaglandins following orgasm. Gilbert of England observed this to be a cause of arthritis. My psoriasis and arthritis have resolved upon adopting intermittent fasting and reducing masturbation to no more than 2 times a month from what used to be 4 times a day.

I went to the (female) reumatologist. There is light years of difference with my (male) endocrinologist. This cunt didn't even listen. She was supposed to prescribe additional RA-specific blood markers, and she didn't. She told me to take over the counter AINEs, which I told her twice that didn't work!
I lost another month.

try this for like a month
do a fast. 2 days, no water. youll feel like youre dying
if you really must drink water, add some himalayan rock salt and potassium "salt" for electrolytes. but try to go 2 full days without

congratulations, youre now going to be a ketogenic vegetarian for a month
source organics from locals if possible
eliminate all carbohydrates that are not plant-fiber based (starches dont count)
make your body run off fats. nuts, oils, avocados. never cook your oils, dont let the oxidize.
make whatever meals you want with nuts, any vegetables, oils, and eggs. don't cook your eggs, consume them raw. again buy local if possible.
juice vegetables as well.
avoid salted nuts.
eat fermented foods <<<
you can eat as much of this stuff as you want.

fast for 24 hours on the weekends.
look into purchasing some quality water for the month, dont drink from the tap.

if you feel at all fatigued, consume more nuts and raw eggs. if that's not doing it for you, have some fish and/or a piece of fruit, but ideally avoid all carbs.

just a recommendation of self experimentation for a week
idk you, your body, your diet, anything like that, but autoimmune is diet oriented, full stop.
>>
>>13069117
>just a recommendation of self experimentation for a week
a month***

I have several autoimmune/rheumatological disorders. The immune system, in these cases, is hyperactive and attacks everything. Self receptors are mislearned as foreign. Allergy therapy shots may be able to reteach the immune system to recognize self receptors as being seperate from foreign; I start allergy therapy in a few weeks.

Human evolutionary fitness isn't determined only by physical fitness but also mental traits, hence why Jews who are riddled with genetic health problems, are highly prolific and have the world by the balls
>>
>>13066879
Autoimmunity is caused by gut issues, go on a carnivore diet for a while until symptoms are gone, then add things back gradually to determine which foods are problematic
>>
>>13067169
Fasting really does help, I will have mild flair ups of some kind of eczema when I start eating too frequently. The moment I fast or eat less often shit will magically vanish.
I personally believe humans were never designed to eat more than once a day, the three meal system is one of grand excess.

Arthritis has no cure, you idiot.
Sugar does cause inflammation and arthritis is an inflammation of the joints, so she might be onto something and trying to make it better.

also this too
i would recommend trying a vegan/vegetarian diet without carbs
if that doesn't work
and a carnivore diet without carbs
or vice versa

your issues are gut related though

im gonna go ahead and assume your diet is pure garbage

autoimmune problems aren't default solved by veganism
the point is its a gut issue, and you need to flush the biome and introduce a new one
experiment until one works

alternatively OP could try a fecal transplant or poop pills

The notion that evolution "doesn't care" about us after we reach ~35 is hilariously retarded, but

If that were true then we would be dropping dead pretty soon after 35, not living with relatively good health until ~65

It's obvious that living for a few decades after already having reproduced is an evolved trait in humans, which improved the fitness of populations who had it, because old people could share wisdom with the young people, allowing the development of more complex cultures
>>

Wow you really are retarded aren't you? Did you miss this part?

Oh no you didn't you just have 0 clue on how they work and just assume they don't. Sadly they are exactly what you describe and don't fix shit. You are so dumd kek.

IBD isn't the only form of auto-immunity nor the one presented by OP. Most of the pathology is just unkown, but people spouting: just go vegan and change your gut dont listen to the docs. Are retarded charlatans undermining any valid therapy/reasoning.
>>
>>13069946
It's not just IBD. Jordan Peterson's daughter had to have hip and ankle replacements in her teens. She claims carnivore cured her.

I had a range of AI issues (eczema, IBD, joint pain) which nearly disappeared while on carnivore

>Plenty of people have experienced total remission of AI symptoms on a carnivore diet, see Jordan Pleberson and his daughter
not the guy you were talking to but sounds like placebo if there isn't a pathological explanation. if carnivore diet suppresses immunity then you would experience less symptoms but that's not really something that can't be done pharmacologically.
the whole idea about carbs causing oxidative stress is really misleading since fat also causes oxidative stress (by the metrics keto and carnivoretards use)
>>
>>13066879
I heard that those aunoimmune cells learnt to attack some protein of some std bacteria and after they finished with that bacteria they find that very protein in our joints, which are by coincidence always were there.
I also heard that eating some gelatin products (some calf-foot-jelly, for example) is reconstruction those joints.
I also read that thc cures all auto-immune disorders, and I noticed that smoking weed soothes my allergic reactions, but damages my social skills.

I have Lyme Disease which causes severe inflammation. I’ve found a ketogenic diet helps reduce this inflammation and improve my symptoms. It might be worth a try considering you’re not sure what the cause is. It could very well be something bacterial. Regardless, an anti-inflammatory diet is sure to help.
>>
>>13067169
Don't fast. It'll kill you. The only reason why people feel good while fasting is because they don't eat shit anymore and the body eats itself (pure nutrition no toxins). Your body isn't retarded. Even cancer is a survival mechanism.

Ok. Fasting now.
The gut was certainly fucked before all this. We can now discuss wtf are they putting into normalfood that kills gut bioma. I suspect milk the most, but also meat, since they don't want us to eat meat anymore, won't be surprised if they are poisoning it.
I was on probiotics for some time and that didn't help though.

This. Doctors are not using their brains anymore. They are stuck in a frame of dogma and bad practices and don't give a shit. They are unscientific. Big pharma dictates what to sell and shamelessly buys doctors.
They are still putting people on respirators despite having a gamut of less invasive ventilation mechanisms that have been (((banned))) because aerosolization bullshit. How many people have they killed with these protocols? And then they dance in TikTok.

>>13067031
Causes aren't known, but the mechanism is usually pretty well known. It's been a very long time since I studied this, but I recall in arthritis the immune system forms aggregates around class IgM antibodies, and these aggregates cause a biochemical pathway leading to inflammation.

So while there isn't a consensus on how autoimmunities (or allergies) develop, they are treatable with medicine that targets the mechanism causing the symptoms of it

>>13067126
It's been suggested that intermittent fasting indeed has a few health benefits, but I seriously doubt that's the main thing that determines whether someone gets arthritis or not. There's (epi)genetic factors, diet, exposure to the environment, microbiota, etc.

We're likely still a few years off from being able to make accurate prediction models for these diseases based on all the contributing factors.
>>
>>13076793

>>13078999
your issue is probably mostly genetic, stop coping. it's possible that an extreme change in your lifestyle triggered this "extreme" event but that's unlikely.
keep in mind americans consume a fuck ton of shit foods that cause oxidative stress and other issues, yet only 5% have autoimmune issues

I'm not a burger though.
I didn't change my lifestyle, in fact I'm now doing exercise an walking, and it doesn't seem to help.
A better diet is not helping as well.
I think my microbiota is fucked up. I have bowel problems since a few years ago. Never looked into it because they would want to perform a colonoscopy, and that is a red line for me. I've read there is a form of arthritis caused by IBD.

I'm of the opinion that many "autoimmune" and inflamatory diseases have their origin in the bowel. And they are more prevalent in western countries because of pesticides or whatever poisons they are using.

could be. genetics is very likely so don't rule it out. if your country doesn't have free healthcare then your doctor could leverage this to milk you dry. read a lot about this subject, don't be overconfident, discuss things with your doctor (if you pay him then just do the diagnostic stuff), etc
