Autoimmune Disorders - Address It Naturally
Over 23 million Americans suffer from an autoimmune disorder and the rate of occurrence is increasing. Autoimmune disorders occur when the body attacks itself. The target can often be the nerve system, digestive tract or hormone tissues such as the thyroid. Joints are often affected leading to significant pain.
How Does Autoimmune Disorder Develop?
An autoimmune disease like Hoshimotos, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis occur when the central nervous system mistakes the body’s own tissues as foreign, thereby attacking itself.
An autoimmune reaction is comparable to an allergic response but the allergen is internal and can not be removed with fully destroying the tissue.
Types of Autoimmune Diseases
Multiple sclerosis (MS), type 1 diabetes (IDDM), inflammatory bowel diseases (mainly Crohn’s disease) (IBD), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), primary biliary cirrhosis, myasthenia gravis (MS), autoimmune thyroiditis (AT), hepatitis and rheumatic diseases (RA), bullous pemphigoid, and celiac disease (CD) are several examples of autoimmune diseases.
