Both SSRIs significantly inhibited disease progression in mice with CIA, with fluoxetine showing the greatest degree of efficacy at the clinical and histologic levels. In addition, both drugs significantly inhibited the spontaneous production of tumor necrosis factor, interleukin-6, and interferon-gamma-inducible protein 10 in human RA synovial membrane cultures. Fluoxetine and citalopram treatment also inhibited the signaling of TLRs 3, 7, 8, and 9, providing a potential mechanism for their antiinflammatory action.
Autoimmune conditions are connected by one central biochemical process: A runaway immune response also known as systemic inflammation that results in your body attacking its own tissues. (click link for full text)
Nine Steps to Treating Autoimmune Disease
1) Check for hidden infections — yeast, viruses, bacteria, Lyme, etc. — with the help of a doctor, and treat them.
2) Check for hidden food allergens with IgG food testing or just try The UltraSimple Diet, which is designed to eliminate most food allergens.
3) Get tested for celiac disease, which is a blood test that any doctor can do.
4) Get checked for heavy metal toxicity. Mercury and other metals can cause autoimmunity.
5) Fix your gut. For details, see my blog on irritable bowel syndrome.
6) Use nutrients such as fish oil, vitamin C, vitamin D, and probiotics to help calm your immune response naturally.
7) Exercise regularly — it’s a natural anti-inflammatory.
8) Practice deep relaxation like yoga, deep breathing, biofeedback, or massage, because stress worsens the immune response.
9) Tell your doctor about Functional Medicine and encourage him or her to get trained — go to www.functionalmedicine.org for more information and to get a copy of the Textbook for Functional Medicine.

GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, playing a central role in regulating cell-to-cell communication. Healthy levels have been associated with positive mood.
A recent study indicates that GABA also enhances alpha wave production in the brain to promote relaxation and moderate occasional stress. In the same study, it supported healthy IgA levels, suggesting that it may support immune health during occasional stress.
Far superior to other diffusers, it uses no heat or air pumps (which can seriously damage the chemistry of essential oils), and safe low voltage direct current.
