Natural Approaches to Autoimmune Disorders

The human immune system is a marvel.  Most of the time it does a wonderful job of protecting us from infections, toxins and abnormal cells of all kinds.

This causes the immune system to attack and damage the body’s own tissues.  Medicine has dubbed the diseases where this happens as autoimmune disorders. This article talks about the probable causes and basic approach to natural therapy for these conditions.
