Low dose immunotherapy (LDI) has become increasingly popular in the area of autism because it is known to reduce the inflammatory responses in the body and restore balance to the immune system. It works with the infections in the body. LDI has become recognized for its ability to provide relief from symptoms and improving the health of people with multiple areas of disease and chronic illness such as Lyme disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Hashimoto’s, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and more.Originally used to offer relief from allergies, it can also be referred to as low dose allergen therapy or LDA. LDI is often used along with LDA.
Autoimmune issues can be created by the harmful toxins released by bacteria in the G.I. tract. Children with autism are well known to have an ill gut. There is a direct gut to brain connection, so if the gut has inflammation, so does the brain. The immune system can be triggered by many things such as toxins from bad bacteria, heavy metals, or undigested food particles leaking through the gut lining. These toxins and foods become sources of an allergic response that creates a cascade of inflammation throughout the body, and in the brain.
LDI helps to reduce these immune responses by training the immune system to stop over-reacting, and therefore, helping to desensitize the system to acquired allergies. Please listen to the full interview with Dr. Karima Hirani on low dose immunotherapy and learn how it can help improve the overall health of you and your child.
