What are autoimmune diseases? What are different home remedies for autoimmune diseases? PART 1

INTRODUCTION TO AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES
• Autoimmune diseases arise from an inappropriate immune response of the body against substances and tissues that are normally present in the body.
• The immune system mistakes some part of the body as a pathogen and attacks its own cells.
• This may be restricted to certain organs or involves a particular tissue in different places.
• The treatment of autoimmune diseases is typically with immuno suppression—medication which decreases the immune response.

Symptoms for Autoimmune Diseases
1. Many autoimmune conditions are associated with digestion and the digestive tract.
Such conditions will produce symptoms that include
• Indigestion
• Bloating
• Abdominal pain
• Diarrhea
• General irritation during defecation
• Low grade fever
• General malaise
• Fatigue

2. Certain nervous system based autoimmune conditions include:
• Lack of coordination
• Tremors
• Pain in various parts of the body
• Sudden loss of sensation

Causes for Autoimmune Diseases
• There is some trigger that makes the immune system believe that there is a danger present in the body that needs to be neutralized.
• There is a genetic predisposition towards the development of autoimmune disorders.
• Environmental factors.
• Extremely sterile environments may actually lead to an increase in autoimmune activity.

Evidence
– Direct evidence from transfer of pathogenic antibody or pathogenic T cells.
– Indirect evidence based on reproduction of the autoimmune disease in experimental animals.
– Circumstantial evidence from clinical clues.

Autoimmune disorders fall into two general types:
– Those that damage many organs (systemic autoimmune diseases).
– Those where only a single organ or tissue is directly damaged by the autoimmune process (localized).

Laboratory tests include
– Autoantibody tests
– Tests for inflammation such as CRP and ESR.

The following is a list of examples of autoimmune disorders:
– Addison disease
– Ankylosing spondylitis
