Myasthenia Gravis is caused by a combination of ongoing anxiety coupled with depression producing feelings of entrapment/restriction. Myasthenia Gravis is actually what I have termed Autonomic Claustrophobia meaning a mental health disorder that manifest itself with physical symptoms of weakness. A person experiences a stressor that triggers flight or fight syndrome and the stressor is perceived incapable of being resolved so the persons fight or flight is ongoing and not turned off as a result their endocrine system is overtaxed.
When endocrine system is exhausted and has over produced hormones such as cortisol which compromises the immune system MG or Autonomic Claustrophobia goes from bad to worse by activating Candidiasis thus becoming debilitating. Candida Albicans is a yeast that occurs naturally in the human body. Normally it lives in harmony with a variety of other microorganisms and actually performs a couple important functions. The problem occurs when something upsets the balance of bacteria in the body and this allows the yeast organism to proliferate and take over all the healthy microorganisms. It normally resides in the intestinal tract, mouth, throat and genitals, however it can burrow holes in the intestinal tract, enter the blood stream and then make it’s way into any organs of the body. To make matters worse it emits over 70 different toxins into the body. Some people may even become allergic to the yeast itself. Once this hardy organism proliferates in the body, it wrecks havoc in many ways and is the initiator of many common maladies, conditions, syndromes and illnesses in our population like Myasthenia Gravis or Autonomic Claustrophobia.
