Your immune system helps to attack bacteria and viruses and, therefore, it is crucial that it functions optimally. Though, in some instances, your immune system can actually launch an attack against your own cells instead of fighting off a virus or infection. When this happens, we refer to it as an autoimmune reaction and it can affect different parts of our bodies – from our skin to our muscles to our blood vessels.
The team at Brisbane Naturopath can provide natural autoimmune treatments if you battle with pain or other symptoms linked with the improper functioning of your immune system.
What can cause a dysfunctional immune system?
There are several risk factors which can result in your immune system starting to break down. One of the main factors is genetics. You are more likely to battle with similar issues, if someone else in your family experiences issues with his/her immune system. A second major factor is your gender. About 75% of patients who suffer from dysfunctional immune systems are women! The changes in hormones that women experience during major life events like pregnancy, childbirth and menopause can set in motion an autoimmune reaction. Lastly, environmental factors like bacteria, irritants and drugs can also play a role.
