What is Autoimmune Disease?
In a healthy body, the immune system works to fight off intruding bacteria and viruses that enter through the environment. Autoimmune Disease develops when your immune system identifies healthy cells as foreign and begins attacking them, which can cause internal damage, affect the functionality of your organs, and several other side effects that can impact your health. There is no known cause for this disease, although environmental factors, drugs, and chemical irritants are thought to be triggers.
