The human body is designed to protect you from disease and infection. The immune system fights against harmful invaders, such as the flu bug. Simply put, a healthy immune system keeps you healthy.
But what happens if your body starts to attack the healthy cells in your body? This reaction is known as an autoimmune condition. It’s where your immune system is in overdrive. If left unaddressed, autoimmune reactions lead to inflammation and potentially serious tissue or organ damage.
Autoimmune diseases are increasing at an alarming rate. Why? In large part, environmental factors, such as increased toxicity in our surroundings and dietary conditions like gluten intolerance, are triggering our immune systems to overreact.
If you have an autoimmune disease it’s important to address the underlying causes, to stop the destruction, and then, to heal your body.
