An Autoimmune Disease: What Do You Mean By An Autoimmune Disease? The Criteria Involved; What Are The Causes, The Symptoms Of Such Diseases And An Example Of An Autoimmune Disorder- Alopecia Areata.


An autoimmune disease is a disorder that arises when the immune system of the body reacts against tissues and substances already present inside the body. Putting it into simpler words, it is the disorder in which the human immune system mistakenly considers a part of the body as a pathogen and start attacking its own tissues and cells. An autoimmune disease may be only restricted, however, to certain organs or might involve a specific tissue in different parts of the body.


An autoimmune disease can be treated by a method called immunosuppression, which involves medication that gradually suppresses the response of the immune system. Typically carried out using drugs, this might also include surgery or radiation therapies. A person may suffer from one or more autoimmune diseases at the same time.


Studies show that family members of patients suffering from autoimmune system disorders are at a higher risk of getting infected by an autoimmune disease. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune system diseases discovered and categorized so far. People suffering from such diseases should follow a healthy lifestyle and eat proper balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables that will lead them with a better immune system.


Immune System


What is the Criterion to Regard a Disease as an Autoimmune Disease?


A disease is considered as an autoimmune disease when it answers the Witebsky’s postulates:

  • If there is a direct evidence of transferring pathogenic antibodies or pathogen T cells.

  • If there is an indirect evidence that can be based on reproducing the autoimmune disease while experimenting with animals.

  • If there is a circumstantial evidence based on clinical clues.



Causes Responsible For Autoimmunity

The white blood cells of the immune system are the fighting agents responsible for protecting the human body from diseases and pathogens, also referred to as antigens. Viruses, bacteria, cancer cells, toxins as well as tissues and blood from other people also fall under the category of antigens. Production of antibodies by the immune system ensures that such harmful substances are destroyed and flushed out of the body.


However, in patients suffering from an autoimmune disease, the immune system is unable to detect the difference between these harmful antigens and the healthy tissues and cells of the person’s own body. Hence such a response from the immune system destroys the normal tissues of the body which is similar to a hypersensitivity reaction such as the case with allergic reactions.

Hence an autoimmune disease might cause:

  • Growth in an organ abnormally

  • Functional changes of the organ

  • One or more body tissues getting destroyed

The tissues and organs normally affected by an autoimmune disease are:

  • Connective tissues

  • Blood vessels

  • Muscles

  • Joints

  • Skin

  • Red blood cells

  • Endocrine glands, like thyroid or pancreas

Symptoms of Autoimmune Diseases and the Treatment Associated

The signs and symptoms of an autoimmune disease will usually vary depending on the kind of disease and the location of the healthy body organ or tissue that gets affected by the immune system abnormally. Common symptoms however include fatigue, fever and general feeling of illness.

Generally the goal of treating an autoimmune disease is reduction in the symptoms exhibited, controlling of the autoimmunity process and maintaining a healthier state in the body to enhance its capability to fight against disease. The treatment might vary from disease to disease and symptoms.

Some alternative therapies can be given but only with your doctors consent and approval to possibly reduce or control the effects of autoimmunity on the body such as Endosterol. Such \natural substances such as Ellagic acid, beta sitosteral, saw palmetto, as well as pumpkin seed extracts which are highly beneficial in relieving the effects of an autoimmune disease.



A Brief About Alopecia Areata- an Autoimmune Disorder!

Losing of hair from some or most parts of the body in patches usually affecting the scalp is Alopecia Areata. It is an autoimmune disease, sometimes referred to as spot baldness. A condition may arise when the baldness may cover the whole scalp or the whole epidermis making the situation even worse.

Hair is lost in mostly round or oval shapes from the scalp in bold patches. Being a non contagious disease, Alopecia Areata can be considered as a hereditary disease or may occur in people who have family members suffering from autoimmune system disorders.

In this condition, the immune system attacks its own hair follicles and suppresses their growth. In the early stages of the disorder, it might be regressed and treated and hair might also grow back.

Intake of natural herbs like saw palmetto or antioxidant phenol like Ellagic acid usually found in Endosterol can possibly help you in relieving the symptoms of hair fall and BPH.
