Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune disease is an immune response caused by antibodies (disease-fighting proteins) being produced against the body’s own cells and tissues. This can include any gland, organ, joint or, in fact, any tissue of the body. Over eighty diseases are classified as either definite or probable autoimmune diseases. Common autoimmune diseases include:

  • Hashimoto’s Disease (attacks thyroid)
  • Grave’s Disease (attacks thyroid)
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis (attacks joints)
  • Multiple Sclerosis (attacks brain and nervous system)
  • Diabetes Type 1 (attacks pancreas)
  • Fibromyalgia (attacks muscle and connective tissue)
  • Autoimmune hepatitis (attacks liver)
  • Celiac Disease (attacks small intestine)
  • Crohns Disease (attacks the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus)

The causes of autoimmune disease are generally considered to be unknown. Many scientists think that genetic factors are somehow involved in pre-disposing people to autoimmune reactions.

Through natural herbs and supplements and getting consistent results, I have found that the inappropriate immune response is due to toxicity in the body and deficiency of certain essential nutrients.
