Autoimmune disease is a very big problem in today’s world. In the US alone, there are around 50 million people who are suffering from some form of autoimmune disease. (1)
This type of disease is a condition where your immune system attacks your own body and causes inflammation and damage to your body’s tissues.
Your immune system’s job is to defend your body against unwanted invaders like unwanted bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, but in the case of autoimmune disease it starts attacking the body itself.
This can not only greatly affect your quality of life, but in some cases autoimmune disease can even lead to death. So it’s a condition that should always be taken very seriously.

There are many types of autoimmune disease and just some of them include:
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis
- Grave’s Disease
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Type 1 diabetes
- Celiac Disease
Another big problem with having this type of disease is that your chances of developing more than one autoimmune conditions is significantly increased.
In fact it has been found that about 25% of people who already suffer with an autoimmune imbalance can go on to develop a second or even third autoimmune condition. (2)
When I (Yulia) was first diagnosed with having a low functioning thyroid gland in my early twenties, none of my doctors even mentioned anything about Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
It was only a number of years later that I discovered that I did actually have Hashimoto’s, and this was only after I had done a lot of research on the subject myself and then asked my doctor to test me for it.
I have lowered my own thyroid antibodies through diet and lifestyle modification and I help other women to do the same.
Hidden causes of autoimmune disease
Every disease has a root cause or causes and autoimmune diseases are no different.
Here are some of the key factors that can cause autoimmunity:
- Certain food proteins in your diet, including gluten, which can trigger an autoimmune condition
- Leaky gut syndrome
- An unhealthy diet and lifestyle, which can include having like lots of stress, which can increase your risk of suffering from an autoimmune disease
- Unhealthy gut bacteria and unwanted viruses, like Epstein Barr Virus
- Nutrient deficiencies (4)
