Bernard MONTAIN has been studying For several years the sensitive problems posed by the syndrome of Gougerot-Sjögren. Here he describes the various key aspects whose knowledge will be useful to practitioners, but also to victims of this pathology which still constitutes a modern medical enigma. Women can suffer from this disease, especially after 40 years old, which suggests also the emergence of a hormonal component.
The lacrimal, salivary, digestive, tracheal and vaginal glands gradually dry up, giving rise to the following ; Keratitis, conjunctivitis, rhino-pharyngitis, etc, The patient, his/her family, but also the practitioner, quickly become desperate especially as complications may appear, such as the rheumatoid arthritis.
This is an Enigma as this is deemed autoimmune disease.
In fact, in naturotherapy, we have reasons to believe causes such as heavy metals (for example, dental mercury amalgams), medicines to determine, perhaps also (who knows?) some vaccinations or toxic substances for the man. The suspicion is particularly laid on some drugs (authorized or not), on hormones (natural or artificial) more and more present in our food (meat, fish, vegetables), without forgetting the pesticides, fungicides, pollutions, etc.
Piecemeal measures would hardly be useful. The Gougerot-Stögren syndrome among others, seemed to require a general review of our eating habits and medication, particularly with the prospect of a thorough study of crudivorisme which perhaps may be essential in terms of safeguarding our capital immune defenses.
That is what BERNARD MONTAIN exhibits with his usual concern to discover the tracks, but also to make accessible new data to the greatest number of people, useful in our time where health problems expands to infinity.
