Like all other animals in the animal kingdom, humans also possess an immune system. The main functions of the immune system are to defend the body from germs and other foreign invaders.
The immune system is composed of special cells and organs that deal with invaders and allergens. The cells create antibodies to fight off the infection or germs.
To defend the body, the immunity must recognise what belongs to your body (self) and what is foreign to the body (non-self).
Autoimmune disorders occur when the body fails to tell the difference between self and non-self. When this happens, the body makes antibodies that are directed towards the body’s own tissues. These are called auto-antibodies. The auto-antibodies attack the normal cells by mistake as they cannot tell the difference so our body ends up attacking itself.
In order to end the war you need to strengthen and support your immune system. In other words, your immune system needs some TLC, and you are the perfect one, actually the only one, who can give your body what it needs.
