An Autoimmune Disease is a medical condition characterized by a mistaken function of the immune system that starts to attacks cells of the body itself, which are gradually not recognized as its own, but as foreign.
Under normal circumstances the immune system protects the human body from harmful microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. As soon as one of these microorganisms is detected by the immune system, several specific and complicated defensive mechanisms are set in motion in order to repel the potential threat. However, in some cases, our body mistakenly perceives some of its own cells as foreign and attacks them by producing antibodies (autoantibodies). More than 80 diseases are recorded formally as the result of such an Immune System attack.
According to the AARDA (American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association), more than fifty million Americans suffer from an Autoimmune Disease. Statistics in Europe are similar, with a recorded sharp increase of Autoimmune Diseases during the last fifteen years.
Diagnosis of Real Causes & Treatments of Autoimmune Diseases
- Gradual restoration of cellular function
- Personalized therapeutic protocols, without chemical residues and excipients
- Treating the real causes
- Therapeutic formulas that work alone or in combination with any other medication
- Adopting a Molecular / Therapeutic Nutrition Plan
Causes of Autoimmune diseases
As it was mentioned above, autoimmune diseases occur as the human body’s defense mechanisms attack the body’s healthy tissues. Recent scientific research proposes a number of reasons for this phenomenon.
The immune system is responsible for the repelling of any attempt from a virus, bacteria or parasites to infect the human body. This procedure is also known as an immune response. However, in certain cases healthy cells and tissues of the body itself are mistakenly caught in the crossfire, creating an opportunity for an autoimmune disease. More specifically, many scientists support a theory that this exact procedure happens before the onset of rheumatoid arthritis. This theory is supported also by the notion that many people with psoriasis reported an infection from Streptococcus before the onset of the disease.
