Your immune system is designed to protect your body’s healthy cell tissues by attacking any viruses, bacteria, or diseases that enter your body. Simply put, it’s what prevents you from getting sick, and also what helps you feel better if you do fall ill.
The healthy immune system spends much of it’s time monitoring your health in a “resting state”. However, autoimmune diseases are different. They can result from the prolonged activity of the immune system when it’s under constant attack. In addition, this activity creates waste products that have to be cleaned up. The clean up crew are some of your specialized immune system cells. With this in mind, imagine if these cells are constantly putting out fires and cleaning up without a break! In addition, because your immune system has memory, it recognizes the structure of foreign invaders. If the foreign molecules look similar to some of your own structures, this can create a problem for your system. Some of your own cells can lose their function as a result of mixed signals from the immune system. If left untreated, serious medical issues may occur.
