INTRODUCTION

Autoimmune disease can be defined as a disease developed due to abnormal and attacking behavior of the immune system towards the body’s own cells. Normal behavior of the immune system is to differentiate foreign and body’s own cells, but in the case of autoimmune disease, the immune system begins to attack the body’s own cells by mistakes of foreign particles. Immune system can attack healthy cells of your joints and skin by releasing auto-antibodies in it. Some autoimmune diseases affect only one organ while others may interfere with functioning of multiple body organs.

Therefore it is essential to provide health to the gut by avoiding consumption of sugars and grains, drinking large quantities of water, including dietary vegetables and fruits in diet.

4. Eat an Anti-inflammatory Diet

Risk of autoimmune diseases can be reduced by eating an anti-inflammatory diet. An anti-inflammatory diet is a diet which includes vegetables, fruits, healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids and olive oil and whole food protein sources. Foods like grains, sugars, omega-6 fatty acids, and trans-fats should be excluded in an anti-inflammatory diet because these foods can raise the risk of autoimmune disorders.
