Controlling your Autoimmune Disease!
What is an autoimmune disease?
It’s when our immune system, which is supposed to protect us from invading microorganisms, turns against us and attacks our proteins, cells, and tissues instead.
There are more than one hundred confirmed autoimmune diseases and many more that are suspected of having autoimmune origins.
Which proteins, cells, and tissues are attacked determines the autoimmune disease and its symptoms.
For example, in Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, the thyroid gland is attacked. In rheumatoid arthritis, the tissues of your joints are attacked. In psoriasis, proteins within the layers of cells that make up your skin are attacked.
It’s easy to feel that our own health is beyond our control—we blame our genetics or our environment, we say it runs in our family, our doctors tell us that it’s just bad luck and that no one knows why one person gets a particular disease while the next one remains healthy.
But in truth, we do have control: our health is almost entirely within our power to change and improve.
