AUTOIMMUNE DISORDER – BASIC PREVENTION AND TREATMENT

Autiimmune-Featured

Abstract

Autoimmune disorders are a diverse group of illnesses in which the immune system can no longer distinguish between its own cells from foreign entities and attacks them. Attacks may be directed against a specific cell, such as beta cells in type 1 diabetes, a specific organ, such as in hypothyroidism, or a systemic condition. There are more than 80 conditions that can be classified under autoimmune disorders. Common disorders are type 1 diabetes, Hashimoto disease, systemic lupus, Addison’s disease, graves’ disease, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis (MS), etc. Let’s discuss them in detail!

Autoimmune Disorders

Introduction

Our body is the most complex functional mechanism on the planet. There are several organs, tissues, nerves, and veins, as well as numerous enzymes, hormones, and other substances. Each component in our body performs one or more functions. If one organ, enzyme, or hormone fails to function properly, the body goes haywire and shows several symptoms. The severity of symptoms varies; some persons may not exhibit many symptoms externally, making diagnosis difficult. Diseases have cardinal symptoms, such as polyuria in diabetes, but this is not always the case; most diseases present with a simple cough, fever, or general exhaustion, which we normally ignore.

This results in a diagnosis at a relatively late stage. If you have an autoimmune illness, you are aware that your body does not function the same way before and after the diagnosis. The illness might have started with cardinal symptoms or the above-mentioned nonspecific symptoms. If you have had this sickness for a long enough time, you will realize that everything around you can affect your disease; food, season, occurrences that make you upset, anything. Figuring out what to take and what to avoid comes through trial and error. As we mentioned before, our system is complicated, and figuring it out is considerably more difficult with a disease. However, in this article, we will explore autoimmune illness and its treatment, as well as how to prevent it if any of your family members have it.

What Causes Autoimmune Disorders

Despite the fact that the specific cause is unknown, researchers have identified risk factors that might trigger a latent autoimmune illness. Genetics has an important influence, although it is not always required. Some risk factors include smoking or other addictions, drugs that can cause autoimmunity, infection, the existence of one autoimmune disorder that can lead to another one in the future, and so on.

Prevention From Autoimmune Disorders

Prevention is needed if any of your family members are diagnosed with any of the autoimmune conditions. you can prevent them by avoiding:

  • Cytotoxic drugs
  • Radiation
  • Neglecting infections; proper care of infection may avoid it from provoking the disease
  • And try to avoid a sedentary lifestyle, erratic sleeping and eating schedules

A healthy diet, a regular sleep pattern, and regular exercise all assist to lower the risk of not just autoimmune illnesses but also metabolic disorders.

Treatment For Autoimmune Disorders In Modern Medicine

The majority of the condition is treated with symptomatic medication or hormone replacement therapy. Pain relievers, anti-inflammatories, antidepressants, insulin injections, plasma exchanges, rash creams and tablets, corticosteroids, intravenous immune globulin, immunosuppressants, and other medications are few examples. Your doctor will provide you with a comprehensive picture of the medications and dietary adjustments that are required for a better quality of life.

How Does Ayurveda View Autoimmune Disorders

Every ailment, according to Ayurveda, is caused by a disruption in digestion, not just in the stomach but also at the cellular level. When digestion (Agni) is disturbed, malformed compounds are produced, which are collectively referred to as "Ama". Ama can be created by a variety of factors, including incompatible diet (viruddha ahara), sedentary lifestyle, impeded Agni, and so on. Even if the meanings of these phrases cannot be completely related to current medical terms or contained in a sentence, in basic terms, disruption of agni can be correlated with metabolic dysfunction, and Ama can be understood as free radicals and ojas as immunity. Ojas is prepared from the finest essence that we can get from food. Ojas will be malformed if the digestion is hampered. Autoimmunity or immune deficiency illnesses can occur as a result of malformed ojas. So autoimmunity comes under "Ojo vyapat janya vikaras".

Ways To Prevent Autoimmune Disorders According To Ayurveda

  • Ayurveda has a generalized prevention method against all diseases. It is to create a wholesome routine to live in. Dinacharya and Ritucharya were designed to help your body to function at its highest potential every day and also to cope up with seasonal changes.  
  • Body purification is advocated during particular seasons to reduce the buildup of undesired "dosha" and "ama," hence averting potential future diseases. Vamana (emesis), virechana (purgation), Basti (enema), Nasya (nasal delivery of therapeutic fluids), and Rakta mokshana (bloodletting) are the therapies executed for seasonal cleansing.
  • A qualified Ayurveda practitioner will assist you in developing a plan for a balanced food, lifestyle, and periodic cleansing of your body.

Treatment For Autoimmune Disorders In Ayurveda

In Ayurveda, treatment for every disease starts from the correction of Agni.

  1. Deepana – Pachana i.e., improving the digestive fire and digesting the impurities like excess “dosha” and “ama”.
  2. Sroto shodhana”. i.e., clearing the body channels for lightness and better functioning of the body
  3. Rasayana” – it is for rejuvenation of the body.

This is a general protocol that may change according to your condition. Medicines for each stage will be decided by your doctor.
