What Is Autoimmunity?

Autoimmunity occurs when an overburdened immune system becomes hypersensitised. So how do you become so sensitive? Normally, your immune system is already very busy fighting off a wide variety of invaders – including allergens, toxins, bacteria, and viruses.

Unfortunately, many people overload their immune systems every day, in a wide variety of ways – from poor food choices to absorbing toxins from their environment, water, and even cosmetics. Apart from toxic overload, gut issues are a major catalyst for compromised immune function.  In particular, leaky gut (when cracks or "holes" form in the lining of the intestinal tract, allowing toxins to leach into your blood) is considered a precursor for many autoimmune illnesses.

As a result, your immune system stays on “high alert” all the time. This can cause it to start to attack healthy tissues as well as even entire organs. Various systems in your body can suffer – from your joints, brain, skin, and glands to your thyroid.

Dealing With Autoimmune Disorders

An autoimmune disease is a lifelong condition but managed correctly, flares and symptoms may be kept to a minimum so that you can live your life.

Doctors will often prescribe medications like injection biologics that just help to manage the symptoms – but don’t really deal with the root causes. What’s worse, many people report still feeling poorly on these medications which do nothing to address the inflammation and underlying imbalances that caused the autoimmune issues in the first place.

As a result, autoimmune disorders tend to leave many people feeling stuck & unsupported.  Yet while conventional medicine may only suggest prescription medicines, integrating this with evidence-based natural methods may help to better manage autoimmune conditions by addressing all the root causes of this chronic illness.

That’s why it may be beneficial to partner with a functional medicine provider that’s trained to untangle these chronic issues at the gut/immune level: Running the correct lab tests to figure out what’s amiss and then crafting a custom treatment protocol tailored to your specific situation.

Calming autoimmune disorders typically involves changes to your diet, lifestyle, stress levels, and incorporating natural medicines to restore and retrain your immune system so that you can experience vibrant health again.
