Autoimmune - When your body turns on itself

What is an Autoimmune Disease anyway? Unlike any other disease your body attacks itself . An autoimmune attack on your own glands, organs and joints. Your body creates antibodies and it can’t tell if it is a friend a foe and your immune system starts shooting inward instead of at potential invaders like bad bacteria, viruses and allergens.

There are 100's of different types of this disease that can cause a confused immune response that creates inflammation. Inflammation is the leading cause of all chronic disease and autoimmune is no exception.

Talk a look at this chart for the Top 8 signs and symptoms of Autoimmune (AI) conditions.
