An autoimmune disorder is a condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue.

Causes :-

In patients with an autoimmune disorder, the immune system can't tell the difference between healthy body tissue and antigens. The result is an immune response that destroys normal body tissues. This response is a hypersensitivityreaction

One theory is that some microorganisms (such as bacteria or viruses) or drugs may trigger some of these changes, especially in people who have genes that make them more likely to get autoimmune disorders.

Autoimmune diseases often run in families, and 75 percent of those affected are women.

The cause of autoimmune disease is unknown. If you have a family member with an autoimmune disease, you may be more susceptible to developing one. There are many theories about what triggers autoimmune diseases, including

•    bacteria or virus
•    drugs
•    chemical irritants
•    environmental irritants

An autoimmune disorder may affect one or more organ or tissue types. Organs and tissues commonly affected by autoimmune disorders include:

•    Blood vessels
•    Connective tissues
•    Endocrine glands such as the thyroid or pancreas
•    Joints
•    Muscles
•    Red blood cells
•    Skin

The following are some of the more common autoimmune diseases:

•    rheumatoid arthritis—inflammation of joints and surrounding tissues
•    systemic lupus erythematosus—affects skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs
•    multiple sclerosis—affects the brain and spinal cord
•    vitiligo—white patches on the skin caused by loss of pigment
•    psoriasis—a skin condition that causes redness and irritation as well as thick, flaky, silver-white patches
•    inflammatory bowel disease—a group of inflammatory diseases of the colon and small intestine
•    Hashimoto’s disease—inflammation of the thyroid gland
•    reactive arthritis—inflammation of joints, urethra, and eyes; may cause sores on the skin and mucus membranes
•    Type 1 diabetes—destruction of insulin producing cells in the pancreas.


Symptoms of an autoimmune disease vary based on the disease and location of the abnormal immune response. Symptoms worsen during flare-ups and lessen during remission.

Symptoms that often occur with autoimmune diseases include:

•    Fatigue
•    Fever
•    General ill-feeling (malaise)

Tests that may be done to diagnose an autoimmune disorder may include:

•    Antinuclear antibody tests
•    Autoantibody tests
•    CBC
•    C-reactive protein (CRP)
•    Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)


The goals of treatment are to:

•    Reduce symptoms
•    Control the autoimmune process
•    Maintain the body's ability to fight disease

Which treatments are used depends on the specific disease and your symptoms.

Homeopathy obviously fits into the class of therapeutic methods that augment the body's own defenses. The basis of homeopathy, called the principle of similars, suggests that a microdose of a substance will heal whatever pattern of symptoms this substances causes in large dose.

Homeopathic medicines are both considerably smaller and safer in dose and more individualized to the person they are being used to treat.

The right constitution will improve the immunity and the counter actions of our own body cells will reduce giving way to improvement in the signs and symptoms. The health becomes stable and he future complications will be under control
