Th1 Th2 Th17 Dominance Test | Advanced
For those with a confirmed autoimmune condition, the Th1 Th2 test is possibly the most important test. The test points out imbalances in the immune system by looking at cytokines, proteins that the immune system relies on to communicate.
Bad communication results in complications for those with autoimmune conditions. The information this test provides helps your doctor develop a strong and effective treatment plan for you, especially when seeking alternative medicine support.
The Th1 Th2 Test is also highly recommended by Dr. Datis Kharrazian in his book Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms When My Lab Tests Are Normal? In the book, Dr. Kharrazian shows how one can use lab tests to understand the true cause of hypothyroidism.
How Can the Th1 Th2 Dominance Test Help Me?
The immune system works like a seesaw. On one side you have Th1 cytokines that initiate the first line of defense. On the other side, you have Th2 cytokines which help produce antibodies to protect you from future invasions. However, when one side goes up, the other side goes down. This can contribute to a weak immune system and potentially promote autoimmune issues.
Running this test will help to understand where the imbalance is. Because certain botanicals used in natural medicine can boost Th1 cytokines and Th2 cytokines, this test can help you and your doctor develop an effective plan to help balance a weak immune system and turn the volume down on autoimmune attacks.
