Autoimmune diseases are disease of the immune system. If you have an autoimmune disease, somewhere along the way your immune system decided to take its own path and began attacking your own tissues such as your thyroid, your intestines, your skin, your brain, your pancreas, or other organs. But no matter what part of your body is under attack, the culprit is your immune system. That said, in order prevent, and reverse autoimmune diseases getting your immune system in check in necessary.
Sadly, in our current medical system, autoimmune diseases are not recognized as diseases of the immune system as a whole. Instead they are treated as diseases of specific organs.
