What is Autoimmune Disease?

Autoimmune disease refers to an illness or disorder that occurs when healthy tissue gets destroyed by the body’s immune system. This is like a boxer who has knocked himself out. There are more than 80 different types of autoimmune disorders. More about this you can read here.



What causes the immune system to act this way?

The exact cause of the autoimmune disease is unknown, according to conventional medicine. Although, there are many theories about what causes it to malfunction, including:

  • Bacteria or virus
  • Drugs
  • Chemical and environmental toxins


Why can Candida overgrowth trigger an autoimmune reaction?

Firstly, the yeast. Candida can change its form from a simple non-invasive cell to an invasive mycelial form with tentacles. This happens when the conditions are right, and there is an opportunity for overgrowth. Secondly, these tentacles grow like roots and can penetrate the wall of the bowel. Consequently, the process increases bowel permeability. It acts like a leaking pipe through which bigger molecules, waste products, and toxins enter the bloodstream. Finally, this leads to Leaky gut, food sensitivities and can trigger an autoimmune reaction.


Which Autoimmune Disease?

It will depend on the person’s genetic vulnerability. Some people have weakness of the nervous system, and they are more prone to develop neurological autoimmune conditions like MS. Other people have weakness of the endocrine system and may develop Hashimoto’s or Addison’s disease. If your skin is susceptible, you may get Psoriasis and so on.
