Your immune system defends your body against attack from viruses, harmful bacteria, pathogens, or diseases that you come in contact with. But this complex system of defense can be compromised or imbalanced by many lifestyle factors, including food allergies, toxins, and sudden illness 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 and even organ damage may occur.
There are hundreds of autoimmune illnesses, each of which has its own unique symptoms. Symptoms of Autoimmune Thyroid Diseases can include depression, fluctuations in weight, difficulty sleeping, 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 in the wrists and hands.
