There are over 80 different autoimmune diseases, and these include Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Thyroid Disease ( Hashimoto’s & Grave’s ), Inflammatory Bowel Disease ( Crohn's disease and Ulcerative Colitis), Celiac Disease, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Psoriasis, and many others.
The function of immune system is to protect the Body from “Invaders”, yet in autoimmune illness it attacks its own body tissues. Depending on your body’s “weak link”, it may attack your joints, thyroid, gut, brain, skin, or all of them.
