What Is An Autoimmune Disease?
The body’s immune system is extremely important to a person’s well-being. It is responsible for producing antibodies that help to attack foreign invaders, such as bacteria, viruses, toxins and other microorganisms from outside the body.
However, sometimes, the immune system cannot differentiate between healthy tissues and foreign invaders, and it creates an autoimmune condition. Autoimmune diseases are disorders that occur when the immune response mistakenly attacks the healthy tissues in the body. There are more than 80 disorders that occur due to this action, as stated by MedlinePlus. The main cause of these conditions must be determined by our practitioners at Agape, but it has been attributed to medications/drugs, Hormone imbalances, Food intolerances/sensitivities, abnormal gut bacteria and other microorganisms. Examples of autoimmune diseases include Hashimoto’s, Graves Disease, Type I, II, III (Alzheimers/Dementia) Diabetes, heart and blood vessel disease and Reactive Arthritis among many others.
