These recommendations can not be considered as an alternative to medical treatment. However, in combination with taking drugs, these recommendations would facilitate disease control process presented below.

The immune systems of people who suffer from auto-immune disease mistakenly attack the healthy tissues and organs of their bodies. Experts do not authentically know what the causes of auto-immune diseases are, but it widely is suggested that they develop due to a combination of hereditary factors and from environmental factors.

Among the most common auto-immune diseases we have:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Skin diseases such as eczema or psoriasis
  • Disorders of the thyroid gland work – Graves’ disease (diffuse toxic goiter) or Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

There are methods of treating of auto-immune diseases, although, these disorders can not be fully cured.

There are more than 80 auto-immune disorders, many of which have the same symptoms. It is often difficult for doctors to determine the source of the problem because of the similarity of symptoms. The most common symptoms of auto-immune disorders include:

  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • low-grade fever
  • Problems with the digestive tract
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • itchy skin
  • Redness and swelling

Those people who are suffering from auto-immune disorders notice that they may have “bad” or “good” days. Sometimes the disease can become worse very rapidly and sometimes the symptoms may even weaken. It is very difficult to understand the reasons as to why there are such sharp changes, so it is not difficult to understand why so many people feel helpless.

The treatment of auto-immune disorders depends on the specifics of the disease. Although medicine is not able to cure the auto-immune disease completely, some of the techniques can ease symptoms.

What to do

Collect data

One of the ways to control the auto-immune disease is to keep a journal of your symptoms. This will help you and your doctor to determine the “image” of the disease. For example, if the appearance of symptoms coincides with the consumption of certain products, or from some type of training or other factors – sleep, stress, hormonal changes. All these may affect the appearance or increase of symptoms.


Keep a journal and make sure that there is no consumption of certain types of food wich make you symptoms become worse. If you have an intolerance to some food, in this case, name the food wich can wreak havoc in the digestive tract by damaging the cells of the intestine and allowing food particles and other substances enter the bloodstream.

Such innocuous for other things as auto-immune diseases intolerance may increase inflammation, because of which the immune responses against “allegedly” foreign substances.


There is no diet that would suit all those who suffer from auto-immune disorders. However, the sensitivity of tracking the products with their further exclusion from the diet can be a good starting point in the fight against the disease. Read about the GAPS diet.


Symptoms of auto-immune disorders such as fatigue, weakness and chronic pain can make it difficult even just to go in the kitchen to prepare a meal, so just imagine how bad you can feel during the training. However, if you’re determined to fight, you should find for yourself a kind of low-intensity physical activity, which will bring at least a little fun.

Regular training for people with auto-immune disorders:

  • Help to be more energetic,
  • Improves mood,
  • Improve flexibility and mobility,
  • Release endorphins that reduce pain,
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Alleviate depression and anxiety.

Consult your doctor what type of exercise is right for your auto-immune disease.


Vitamin D helps correct the immune system (particularly in patients with multiple sclerosis). Dosage: 1000-2000 IU per day.

Probiotics: These bacteria may improve the health of the gastrointestinal tract, and potentially reduce inflammation. Consume lactose-and bifidobacteria in the doctor recommended dosage.
