Greenwich Functional Medicine Specialist Explains Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune disease is a major cause of chronic pain and is the number one cause of suffering in North America.

Your immune system is your body’s defender. It’s designed to protect your healthy cells by attacking viruses, bacteria or pathogens that are not supposed to be there. It’s what helps you heal itself and feel better.

Autoimmune diseases are different. They cause your immune system to get confused and attack the healthy cells in your body instead of the bad ones. This complicates the things even further because your body’s defense system is working against itself. If left untreated, serious damage may occur.

There are over 100 known autoimmune diseases, each of which have their own unique symptoms. Symptoms of autoimmune thyroid conditions such as Hashimoto’s can include depression, weight fluctuations, difficulty sleeping, and anxiety. Celiac Disease presents as digestive problems, neurological issues and rashes. Rheumatoid Arthritis will often cause symmetric joint pain and destruction in the wrists and hands.

Other common autoimmune diseases include Lupus, Crohn’s Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Ankylosing Spondylitis and Type 1 Diabetes.
