Autoimmune diseases are on the rise and conventional medicine has no cure, nor any explanation for them. Autoimmune diseases are where your body produces antibodies or proteins that attack your own tissues, organs, glands, and cells. This attack leads to inflammation, deterioration, and in some cases, partial or total destruction of the target of the antibodies. Conditions such as systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjogren syndrome, Hashimoto thyroiditis, Graves disease, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile (type 1) diabetes, polymyositis, scleroderma, Addison disease, vitiligo, pernicious anemia, glomerulonephritis, and pulmonary fibrosis, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis/psoriatic arthritis, even gout and others are lumped into the autoimmune category.
Immuo-suppressive drugs such as steroids, anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDS), anti-inflammatories, avoidance of the sun (which lower your Vitamin D levels), dietary & lifestyle limitations and surgeries are your only mainstream treatment options.
