Triggers of autoimmune symptoms

Making no apologies for my selfish passion in researching autoimmune illness, I find myself stumbling over papers that I feel you may be interested in too.

As a crohns disease patient who is pretty well these days,  I still find myself aiming to get to the bottom of many other issues that lurk just under the barrier of health for me.

What is autoimmune illness?

The body can have a response to itself abnormally.  Causing damage and symptoms.
While we can currently list at least 80 types of autoimmune diseases, this is a growing list.
Here are some of the better known diseases:

Ulcerative colitis
Crohns disease
Multiple Sclerosis
Type 1 diabetes
Lupus
Rhumatoid arthritis
Coeliac disease
Endometriosis

We also experience may symptoms of the disease which are not the disease itself. Such as gastritis or chronic fatigue syndrome.









This article lists 12 common triggers of autoimmune illness.  You may not be shocked at many of them but it's good to revise once in a while.

Could food really be responsible?

Can we relieve symptoms by eating specifically for the autoimmune illness?

I believe so yes.  As I undertake research into this hypothesis, I will feed back here on this blog any exciting information or findings I can share with you.
