Autoimmune Disease: When the body attacks itself. Your natural cells become involved in friendly fire. But, it is not just the cells that are under fire. Your skin and joints can have an all-out war waged against them, ex. lupus and diabetes. 

Autoimmune diseases (AD) sound fairly new but have existed for quite some time. If you pay a visit to your local physician and tell her/him you have a rash or aches and pain the doctor may inform you that you have an AD. 

AD may have developed as a result of our environmental pollutants, and the foods we eat. Have you noticed how some may suddenly develop allergies for the first time in their lives? Something has changed. It is best to try to find the trigger. 

Did you know that stress, smoking, and or sex are triggers?

Create a food diary and track when your body starts developing odd reactions. Other possible symptoms are multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease, inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis, tiredness, loss of hair, achy muscles, and brain fog. Eczema may be included within this list. NOTE: Eczema can appear anywhere on your body or face. Proper hydration offers the chance to keep it at bay or at least minimize how frequently it occurs.

The best counteraction is to drink plenty of water daily (8 glasses) Hydration is a must and it is especially helpful if you have small bouts of eczema. Eat regular meals that you cooked at home. Include fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. Above all else get at least 8 hours of sleep if possible. Regular exercise can also be beneficial, do not overlook its importance.

Keep in mind, many of these discomforts may randomly appear. Do not panic. Do your best to maintain and or improve your overall health. It is impossible to have control over everything. Once in awhile our genetic makeup is the culprit. However you do have some control, so make the most out of it. You are not alone. Many people have more than one type of AD. Most are manageable. Be careful with ibuprofen, if taken to often for too long it may make your symptoms worsen.

What is your experience? How did you handle your AD? What worked for you? Talk to your doctor and do research.
