Autoimmune disease is a condition in which the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells in the body. This can cause a wide range of symptoms, since the immune system can affect any part of the body. Autoimmune diseases are becoming increasingly common in the United States, and they affect more than 23.5 million people.
Some of the most common autoimmune diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes, and inflammatory bowel disease. The cause of autoimmune diseases is not yet fully understood, but some environmental and genetic factors are thought to play a role. These diseases occur when the immune system becomes confused and starts attacking healthy cells instead of foreign invaders.
Autoimmune diseases can be difficult to diagnose, since their symptoms can vary widely from person to person. Common symptoms include fatigue, joint pain, skin rashes, and muscle weakness. In some cases, the symptoms can be similar to other illnesses, making it hard to make an accurate diagnosis.
AAIM is able to help reduce symptoms associated with autoimmune diseases by helping to reduce inflammation, balancing the immune system, alleviating pain, increasing circulation, and helping to reduce stress. It can also help to reduce the side effects of medications and may be beneficial for digestive issues.
