Bilstrom’s Nuclearitis. noun. A chronic autoimmune disease characterized by the production of antibodies which mistakenly attack proteins in the nucleus of cells within the human body including structures such as DNA. First described by American Physiatrist, Functional Medicine and Integrative Medicine physician David Bilstrom in 2018.
Western allopathic medicine finds it very difficult to treat anything that does not have a specific disease name. A positive ANA is an autoimmune process in which the immune system is attacking the contents of the nucleus within each of our cells. Our DNA and it’s cousin RNA for example. This is not good. We shouldn’t attack our own DNA. It’s best not to “piss off” our DNA. Our DNA makes the proteins that each of our cells need in order to function properly. Without these proteins being made correctly, the cells can’t do the work they were designed to do. This impacts every cell in our body.
When the simple blood test ANA (Antinuclear antibody) turns positive, we know this significantly increases a person’s chance of getting rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, scleroderma, mixed connective tissue disease, dermatomyositis, autoimmune hepatitis and drug-induced lupus.
Usually, when the ANA test turns positive, a person is told to just wait and see what happens. No specific treatment is offered to help them with the many health issues they have already developed, along with the positive ANA testing, because up until now we don’t have a specific disease name for this. “Lets wait until you develop new antibodies to other structures within the nucleus” they are told. “Lets wait until you develop antibodies to structures that will tell us you have rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. Then we can offer you medicines that will help some with your multiple health issues but not really fix the underlying reason you started to attack your own body parts in the first place”. “You will still be more likely to develop new autoimmune diseases. In fact, some of the medicines that you will be offered have as a side effect the ability to give you a brand new autoimmune disease. But they probably will help you feel better for a while”.
No specific autoimmune disease? No specific treatment. Wait until you get so bad you now have a specific disease? We can then offer you some kind of medicine.
But what about making the ANA go negative by addressing exactly what causes the immune system to start attacking our body parts. We test for why this is happening. We know where to look. We address what is found. The person feels so much better in general because whatever is causing your immune system to mistakenly attack the nuclear material is also typically causing all their other issues. Fatigue, muscle pain, joint pain, stomach and gut issues, brain fog, insomnia, skin issues, hair loss, easy bruising, dry skin, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, menstrual issues, ovarian cysts, breast cysts, fibroids, endometriosis etc… Because the ANA is now negative, the person is no also longer heading to “new autoimmune problems” like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
But how can we, as western medicine allopathic people and doctors, treat something when we don’t even have a name for it? We have a name now. “Bilstrom’s Nuclearitis”. See definition above. Let’s start treating a positive ANA!
Lady Gaga. She has had a positive ANA for a while now. Because of some health issues she was having, some people speculated in the media that she had Lupus. Her aunt already has Lupus. Autoimmune diseases run in families in a huge way. Maybe it is Lupus people said. After having to cancel a run of shows, Lady Gaga came out earlier this year and said something like this, “No, I don’t have lupus. I have had a positive ANA for quite some time but my tests don’t show that I have lupus.” “I have had some widespread chronic pain and fatigue. But it is not because I have tested positive for Lupus. What I have just been diagnosed with is fibromyalgia. The pain of fibromyalgia can look a lot like the pain of lupus. They can now offer me a medicine for fibromyalgia that can help somewhat with at least the pain I have been experiencing. If the pain is less maybe I will have more energy”
Remember all the health problems people can get that are caused by the same issues that make the ANA go positive? Muscle pain, fatigue etc… etc… etc…
If Lady Gaga knew. If the millions of other people that have a positive ANA, but not other antibodies being produced thus no disease name, knew that what they had already was a disease with a name, would they seek out treatment before it gets even worse? My hope is yes. And not just a medicine to help some of the symptoms but actually fixing the underlying causes and making them and the health issues go away. Make the positive ANA go away. Make the risk of getting new autoimmune diseases go away. Avoid having to use medicines with significant side effect profiles including causing new autoimmune diseases to occur.
Bilstrom’s Neclearitis. A new disease. A new paradigm for treating autoimmune diseases. Not just for Bilstrom’s Neclearitis but all autoimmune diseases. Because they are all basically just one big disease that can attack any body part. Including our nuclear material. Our DNA.
I invite everyone to take a look at my youtube videos about autoimmune disease. Search David Bilstrom MD and autoimmune disease. They are numbered 1-13. See why people get autoimmune disease and what tests can be easily run to determine what needs to be addressed to reverse the process. To stop the body from attacking itself.
