Dr. Kharrazian’s new research links BPA with multiple sclerosis; neurological autoimmunity

A new study by Dr. Kharrazian shows a link between bisphenol-A (BPA) in plastics and autoimmunity to brain and nerve tissue. The paper was published with Aristo Vojdani, PhD. BPA is a chemical found in plastic products such as water bottles, plastic utensils, and plastic bags. The paper shows two important ways BPA impacts the…

Autoimmune gut-repair diet

We have received many emails from people asking what they can do immediately to manage their autoimmune condition. The science can be confusing and complex, especially to the person with Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism who also suffers from brain fog, fatigue, and some loss of cognitive function. What people frequently fail to realize is that underlying all…

New research shows spinach, tomatoes, soy, and corn may be an immune trigger for multiple sclerosis

With immunologist Dr. Aristo Vojdani, PhD, I co-authored a study that found statistically significant associations between multiple sclerosis and spinach tomatoes, soy, and corn. We studied these food proteins because they share a similar protein with an autoimmune target site of nerve tissue called aquaporin. To read more about this research, visit this study. These…

Autoimmune research; just graduated from Harvard Med School program

We are in the process of publishing our peer-reviewed autoimmune research regarding food and chemical molecular mimicry and Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism, type 1 autoimmune diabetes, and autoimmune cerebellum ataxia. We have also discovered some interesting research on plastic compounds and neurological autoimmunity.  For a review of my most recent scientific publications please go to this link…

What you need to know about chelation, chemicals, and heavy metals when you have autoimmunity

Science has reliably proven that environmental pollutants, chemicals, and toxins can trigger autoimmunity. These chemicals include mercury, lead, benzene, solvents, and other compounds found in our everyday environment — carpets, mattresses, plastic utensils, plastic water bottles, fire retardants found in furniture and children’s pajamas, etc. Many people mistakenly believe the best thing to do in…

The Effect of Plastic Products on Autoimmune Disease and Thyroid Function: Stop Using Plastic Coffee Lids!

When managing Hashimoto’s or any autoimmune disease, one goal is to avoid triggers that cause flare ups. Although avoiding dietary triggers — such as gluten, grains, dairy, GMOs, lectins, etc. — is foundational, did you know environmental triggers can cause flare ups too? For example, one of the most common and most overlooked autoimmune triggers…
