One of the functions of the immune system is to protect the body, reacting to the microorganisms and producing antibodies or lymphocytes (types of white blood cells). In normal condition, the immune response can’t activate itself against the cells of its own body. In some cases, however, immune cells make mistake and attack the cells they have to protect. It can lead to various autoimmune diseases. For example, diseases in which the immune system attacks their own tissue. These activities lead to inflammatory processes and injuries. There are over 80 different autoimmune diseases which can be common or rare.
These diseases can be localized in one organ or tissue, or generalized (systemic) affecting many organs and tissues.
Some of the most common autoimmune diseases are Graves' disease, type I diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease (including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease), multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis and others.
Typically, the treatment of autoimmune diseases is almost impossible - usually, the measures are taken to regulate important functions and systems or to achieve a balance. In such cases, doctors prescribe anti-inflammatory medications, corticosteroids, painkillers, immune suppressors and other medications. All these factors can have a beneficial effect on the condition but they can also make it worse. Such types of disease are extremely complex and have been deeply researched to show how they occur and which are the most effective treatments. These types of diseases are extremely complex and have been the subject of numerous studies to determine how they occur and what are the most appropriate treatments.
Meantime, nature has given some elements that would strengthen the immunity, metabolism and natural healing powers. One of them are zinc, amino acids, enzymes, and, on the other hand, are hormones as messengers of various activities in other organs and systems.
