Autoimmune Diseases

Your immune system defends your body against attacks from viruses, harmful bacteria, pathogens, or diseases that you encounter. But this complex system of defense can be compromised or imbalanced by many lifestyle factors, including food allergies, toxins, and infectious agents such as bacteria or viruses.

Autoimmune disorders cause havoc with your health since your immune system is malfunctioning, attacking and damaging its own healthy tissues instead of the harmful invaders it’s meant to attack. Dealing with this kind of illness can be challenging as your body’s defense systems are working against it. If left untreated, serious medical issues may occur and even organ damage.

Types of Autoimmune Disease

There are hundreds of autoimmune illnesses, each of which has its own unique symptoms. Symptoms of Autoimmune Thyroid Diseases (Graves disease and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis) can include depression, fluctuations in weight, difficulty sleeping, hair loss, and anxiety. Celiac Disease manifests itself through digestive problems, neurological issues, rashes, and the sudden loss of control of your body’s movements. Those suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis will often notice symmetric joint problems the wrists and hands.
