How to prevent autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis? There are many treatments for this disease but unfortunately we do not know how they affect the immune system. When there is an imbalance between our good and bad bacteria, it results in inflammation. Multiple sclerosis is a manifestation of an immune deficiency. Our body has a huge arsenal of white blood cells and they are responsible for keeping us healthy but due to a malfunction, they can no longer perform their duties and this results in inflammation. This causes pain and sometimes in severe cases, there can be brain fog or aphasia. The two most common auto-immune diseases are rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus. Lupus is a condition that results from autoimmune diseases and can range from mild to severe. This disease is characterized by Lupus flare ups that occur due to infection or other reasons. Anemia, poor nutrition, infections and stress can trigger a Lupus attack. People with Lupus may have a higher risk of developing arthritis. Many people are wondering how to prevent autoimmune diseases such as Lupus and osteoporosis. They are the result of a chronic inflammation within the gut. Our gut microbiomes is an intricate ecosystem of bacteria, yeast and other organisms. Chronic inflammation depletes this delicate ecosystem and allows pathogens, parasites and allergens to colonize and cause inflammation. Antibiotics kill off the bad bacteria but also the good bacteria so now the ecosystem is defunct, unable to deal with the onslaught of pathogens. Other examples of autoimmune diseases that affect the gut include ulcerative colitis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes ulcers and lesions in the colon. Crohn's disease is another gut microbial disorder and results in a wide variety of abdominal symptoms including cramping, bloating and diarrhea. These two disorders are related to an abnormality in the immune system and are not caused by the same thing.
