Autoimmune diseases are characterized by the body's immune responses being directed against its own tissues, causing inflammation and tissue destruction.
Autoimmune disorders can either cause immune-responsive cells to attack the linings of the joints (rheumatoid arthritis) or trigger immune cells to attack the insulin-producing islet cells of the pancreas (leading to diabetes).
A healthy immune system recognizes, identifies, remembers, attacks, and destroys bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, cancer cells, or any health-damaging agents not normally present in the body.
A defective immune system, on the other hand, wreaks havoc throughout the host by directing antibodies against its own tissues.
Some examples of autoimmune disease may include, celiac disease, fibromyalgia, Crohn's, pancreatitis, systemic lupus, Sjogren's syndrome and Hashimoto's thyroiditis.
The autoimmune system needs a good nutritional foundation (over a long period of time) to alleviate or reverse lifestyle autoimmune dysfunction and assist with combating fully developed autoimmune diseases.
Mounting evidence suggests that vitamin D may be a critical missing link in virtually all autoimmune diseases, including lupus. There are many considerations to keep in mind when seeking to heal:
Autoimmune diseases and the physical, chemical and emotional pain they create impacts millions around the world. The primary way doctors treat these diseases is to prescribe immune suppressing drugs. Unfortunately, this approach has failed to achieve a meaningful outcome and has created an even greater health crisis--what Dr. Peter Osborne calls “The Prescription Pain Trap”--which you will learn more about.
