Autoimmune Disorders

The Autoimmune Protocols
New evidence suggests that protocols including iodine and bio-identical hormones are in so many ways the first protocols of choice in treating autoimmune disorders; with very positive results. 

Whilst we still stand by our original autoimmune protocol that we have published for many years (through many adjustments and revisions to include new discoveries), we now feel it is time to create a new protocol rather than revising the existing one. Hence, we will now offer a choice of autoimmune protocols. There is considerable remedy overlap between the two protocols, as you will note upon comparison.

Glycine and autoimmune disorders

The severity of autoimmune disorders has been found to collate with the degree of body glycine deficiency. The reason is simple, glycine is quite possibly the major antidote to inflammation. It is inflammation that causes destruction of tissue and also damage to the beta cells of the pancreas. Supplementing with Glycine at 10 g or more daily, as discussed in the video below can have the amazing effect of stopping the inflammatory process.

Glycine is contained in gelatin/gelatine (hydrolysed collagen from mammals or fish) at about 30%. However, taking gelatin alone will require a dose of at least 30g daily to achieve the best healing. This can work out costly and inconvenient. Since glycine alone is so effective and cost effective and very easy to take in drinks, it makes sense to either take just glycine at optimal doses of 10 g a day to balance the methionine that is contained in our average daily protein input or in some cases, depending on the individual responses, doses higher than 10 g daily. One can take gelatin in addition to provide more balanced nutrition (e.g. 10 g daily each of gelatine and glycine, or more glycine if needed, as stated above).

Both are available from Regenerative Nutrition

We suggest prioritising the new protocol; designated PROTOCOL ONE as we feel this will be a far more effective programme for most cases. 

However, the original; now designated PROTOCOL 2 is still supported and the remedies are still being supplied by RN. We suggest this protocol for those not wanting to use hormones and for those who are already using it and do not wish to change. It would also be recommended as a back up for those who do not achieve success with protocol one.


A particularly useful combination of supplements for SUPPORTING the main remedies recommended are....

D-ribose is a complex 5-carbon sugar made in the human body. It is the catalyst that starts the metabolic process for the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) within the body's cells. ATP is a co-enzyme used as an energy carrier in the cells of all known organisms. D-ribose is the specific nutrient needed for ATP production, the essential component for the body's energy production. Without D-ribose, cells cannot produce ATP and a low energy state of lethargy will occur.

Benefits and applications of D-ribose
  • Energy boost for all low energy states, from simple tiredness right the way through to chronic fatigue syndrome, including fatigue brought on by autoimmune conditions.
  • Heart health; recent research shows ATP production in the heart muscle increased by 300% to 400% due to supplemental D-ribose
  • Blood health; aids in the longevity of blood cells
  • Brain health; increases the ability to think clearly by virtue of glucose production aided by D-ribose supplementation


For all of those with autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue, problems losing weight and any chronic heath issue the most common factor worsening your condition, often dramatically and covertly, is an intolerance to wheat.

Wheat intolerance is very common, in fact a study of a selection of patients with autoimmune disorders found that 100% had wheat intolerance.

Wheat has been found to cause damage and inflammation in the gut. Inflammation then spreads throughout the body and can impact on any organ or system, including the brain.

Any food intolerance can be masked, so that you are not aware of how the food is damaging you, if you have been using it habitually. The food intolerance can be found/unmasked simply by stopping the suspect food for one or two weeks to see if  symptoms improve and then re-introducing them two weeks later (have plenty) and noting if an aggravation of symptoms occurs.

One can spend years with various therapies and nutritional supplements and not regain full health when simply removing a single food (most often wheat) can result in great improvements in health.

Wheat Products: Bread, cakes, pastries, biscuits, flour, pasta etc. If you habitually consume these foods then you can more or less guarantee you have an intolerance to them.

Colloidal silver is an excellent natural remedy for a variety of lung problems including bronchitis, lung infections and COPD. While colloidal silver can be used orally to treat some lung problems, delivering the colloidal silver directly to the lungs is the optimum way to treat most lung issues.

An electronic nebuliser, the type that is commonly prescribed by medical professionals for asthmatics and those with chronic lung problems, can be used to deliver colloidal silver to the lungs. It is used successfully by many to treat bronchitis and lung infections.
5-15 ml of colloidal silver is added to the reservoir and nebulised every few hours during the day. A small portable nebuliser is all that is needed. There are a variety available on the market such as the following (as tested and recommended by Regenerative Nutrition, without any affiliation) being both portable and convenient: OMRON MicroAIR U100 Portable, Pocked-Sized, Silent Mesh Nebuliser
It is much better to use the most natural saline as a base rather than colloidal silver in water. This can be achieved with Ionic liquid minerals.
  1. Take 5 ml of Ionic Liquid Minerals straight from the bottle and mix with 150 ml colloidal silver. 
  2. Add 5-15 ml of the mixture to the nebuliser's reservoir each day
  3. Nebulise every few hours during the day
Nebulising this mixture is more beneficial than just using colloidal silver. Mineral salts on their own have proved beneficial in relieving asthma and bronchitis. It is also very gentle on the lungs as is does not disturb the balance of natural salts in the lining of the lungs as nebulising water would.

Colloidal silver not only kills almost all pathogenic micro-organisms but also has some healing effect on the lungs. Nebulising directly to the lungs gets it into the blood and extracellular fluids efficiently and quickly.
Nebulising ionic minerals and colloidal silver is a very effective way to improve breathing during an acute COPD/asthmatic episode. Furthermore,  it can be used on a regular basis for almost all lung disorders to improve the functioning of the lungs. Some mucus may be eliminated from the lungs due to the above treatment and will help improve aeration and blood oxygen levels.
Blood Oxygen levels can be checked with a cheap oximeter such as this one GHB Pulse Oximeter Finger Blood Oxygen Saturation Monitor SpO2 with OLED Display


Removal of Blocks to Health, Healing and Wellness

We have defined the major blocks to health improvement which should be considered the number one priority for resolution before one goes on to a more specific healing regimen such as that detailed in the programme above. By removing these blocks one will feel stronger and more prepared for a specific programme and will achieve far greater success with it. Please read this essential article here

The Autoimmune Protocol

Not all of the remedies listed here will neccessarily be needed. We strive to bring you the most effective remedies to resolve your health problems in the simplest supplemental regime possible. We aim to treat the actual root causes of health problems holistically rather than supply remedies that will give temporary or partial relief from only the symptoms. This has been our mission since the founding of Regenerative Nutrition in 1994. As we uncover more fundamental truths about the causes, and therefore the relief, of diseases and health problems we update and revise our product range and recommendations.

Above, we detail targeted remedy recommendations for Autoimmune disorders, but we further suggest that you view the autoimune protocol article and supplement pages by clicking here

To achieve overall good health and long term resolution of this health problem the remedies selected here should be combined with the autoimmune protocol remedies for the best results.

It may well be that there is some overlap and that many of the remedies in the autoimmune protocol are listed here also.
