What is Autoimmune DiseaseAutoimmune Disease

Autoimmune Diseases affect as many as 50 million Americans. Autoimmune Disease develops in an individual  when the immune system that normally defends the body and it’s systems against disease and foreign invaders, instead turns and attacks your body’s own healthy cells and tissues viewing them as the foreign entity.

This attack by your immune system can impact nearly any part of the body harming systems vital to the maintenance of health and wellness. When your immune system goes offline and fails to break off it’s attack on healthy tissues and ends up causing damage to you, you have what is called an Autoimmune Disease.
