Thoughts on autoimmune diseases/disorders and spirulina/chlorella? Lots state that you shouldn't take these if you have autoimmune. However I'm going to take chlorella, maybe not spirulina. I have possible M.S but no diagnosis or for Lyme. Frustration..

But hmmm...found this

Study reveals spirulina's power to suppress an overactive immune system

The study, reported in the December, 2008 issue of the journal Natural Medicine (Tokyo) was designed to test the ability of spirulina to modulate the immune system. The in vivo effect of spirulina on humoral immune response, cell-mediated immune response, and tumor necrosis factor alpha was investigated in mice. In vitro, its effect on induced T lymphocyte proliteration was analyzed.

The researchers found spirulina significantly inhibited the humoral immune response, cell mediated immune response reaction, and tumor necrosis factor alpha in the mice in a dose-dependent manner. In vitro, spirulina decreased the mitogen-induced T lymphocyte proliferation in a concentration-dependent manner when compared with controls. The scientists concluded that spirulina's ability to suppress the immune response was remarkable.

Seems like you found good evidence to not take the spirulina!

Yes,but what I pasted above was opposite,lol. It was saying spirulina could control an immune response pretty much. I did order some,and will take with chlorella to see how goes. Will start slow

I take spirulina and chorella in my super green food and I feel quite good afterwards. I also just started taking spirulina tabs, (from Trader Joes, just $4 a bottle) they also contain GLA. Spirulina is purported to help with detoxing (according to Lyme specialist Dr. Klinghart). I haven't noticed herx after I take them.

Hope you feel well!
