The immune system is designed to protect the body by seeking invaders and killing them. It has special cells that deal with invaders and allergens. These cells create antibodies to fight off the infection or foreign intruders. With a normal and fully functioning immune system, invaders like a virus, bacteria, fungus, or parasite will not be able to proliferate.
The Autoimmune Disease
Autoimmune disease happens when the immune system, programmed to defend our body against invaders mistakes healthy cells to be foreign invaders. As a result, the immune system attacks healthy body cells as well. One of the components of the immune system is the Regulatory T Cells. When T-cells fail, the body fails.
The Immunodeficiency Disease
The immune system malfunction disabling the body to kill the virus and bacteria invaders. Unlike Autoimmune diseases, it does not attack healthy cells. Immunodeficiency disorder is the most common result of people who have HIV or AIDs virus where the virus (Human Immunodeficiency Virus or HIV) that causes AIDS, attacks the immune system and leaves the body vulnerable to a variety of life-threatening illnesses and many forms of cancers.
Cause of immune diseases
Immune disorders are often times categorized as either congenital or acquired. When you’re born with a compromised immune system. Also called a congenital or primary disorder, it is difficult to determine the actual cause. The most common acquired immune disorder is a result of getting the HIV virus, usually through blood transmission or unsafe sex.
Generally, the lack of nutrition is an underlying cause of for immune-related problems. When certain enzymes (failed nutrition) diminish, toxic build up inside the immune cells ultimately compromises the whole system.
Immunodeficiency does not attack healthy cells, but autoimmune disease does
The most common autoimmune disease
The type of autoimmune disorder depends on the type of body tissue that is affected. There are more than 80 known types of autoimmune disorders. Disorders of the immune system can result in autoimmune diseases, inflammatory diseases, and cancer, according to the NIH.
1. Rheumatoid Arthritis
When the immune system attacks the lining of the joints. This results in discomfort and many times the intolerable pain.
When the immune system attacks various parts of the body. Organs including kidneys, hearth, lungs, and brains can be damaged and the result is extreme fatigue, joint pain, skin sores, and rashes. The immune system is designed to attack foreign substances in the body but with Lupus, it attacks healthy cells, tissues, and organs of the body.
3. Multiple Sclerosis
When the immune system attacks the Central Nervous System, leading to mobility issues, in some cases blindness, paralysis, and death.
4. Type 1 diabetes
When the immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas.
5. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
Related to Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, it is when the immune system attacks the intestine.
When the immune system attacks the skin, sometimes the eyes, nails, joints. Psoriasis often results in a build-up of scales called plaques on the skin (accelerated skin cell growth).
7. Grave’s Disease
It involves the over-activity of the thyroid, which is rooted in an autoimmune condition.
When the immune system attacks the skin and blood vessels causing them to thicken. The most common result of Scleroderma is Reynaud’s Syndrome – a sensitivity of the hands and feet to cold.
9. Reiter’s Syndrome
Inflammation and pain in the joins and tendons.
10. Addison’s disease
Damages to the adrenal glands, causing a deficiency in the secretion of hormones. It results in weakness, fatigue and skin rashes or lesions.
Autoimmune diseases are often treated with steroids. Medications such as corticosteroids or other immune suppressive agents can be very helpful. In some immune deficiency conditions, the treatment may be the replacement of missing or deficiency elements, (infusions of antibodies to fight infections, Dr. Diana W. Lau, MD)”.
How dietary food supplement can help
Prebiotic and Probiotic DIGESTIVE+++
Special polysaccharides complex (prebiotic formula) boost the defensive abilities of the body’s ‘bacteria eliminating cells. Dietary supplements like LifePharm’s DIGESTIVE+++ a solid warrior of defense that contains 3 powerful mushrooms (Reishi, Maitake, & Turkey Tail).
Time-release Vitamin C Complex IMMMUNE+++
Immune+++ can maintain your body’s front-line defense against the most dangerous illness-causing pathogens. It also contains Vitamin C and a special herb of botanical blends (Camu Camu, Acerola, Ashwagandha, SeaBuckthorn, & Pomegranate)
These ingredients generate a powerhouse of immunity to colds and infections. Together with Laminine Food Supplement that contains Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF), these supplements will help boost and balance the immune system with the right diet and proper exercise.
