Autoimmune Disorders And Conditions

Your immune systems job is to protect your body from disease. Immune system disorders cause abnormally low or abnormally high activity within the immune system. When there is a low response, the body becomes highly vulnerable as it is unable to fight off infections. Over activity, in turn, causes the body to attack itself, as seen in autoimmune disorders.

Autoimmune diseases are a result of an abnormal immune response where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys healthy body tissues. There are over 80 different autoimmune diseases, and as many as 50 million Americans are affected by autoimmune disease. Often times the various autoimmune condition have similar symptoms which makes them very hard to diagnose. Additionally, a single person can have multiple autoimmune diseases at once.

Below you will find a list of some of the most common autoimmune diseases:

  • Addison’s disease: characterized by insufficient functioning of the adrenal gland. Due to the chronic under functioning of the adrenal glands, people with Addison’s disease may experience muscle weakness, low blood pressure and blood sugar, fatigue, weight loss, nausea, depression and irritability.
  • Celiac disease: the inability to eat gluten due to a reaction that damages the small intestine lining.
  • Graves’ disease: results from an overactive thyroid which produces excessive hormones. Those who have Grave’s disease may suffer from symptoms including irritability, unexplained weight loss, difficulty sleeping, bulging of the eyes, heat sensitivity, and heart palpitations.
  • Hashimoto’s disease: involves inflammation of the thyroid gland. Symptoms may not always be present, but can include fatigue, weight gain, depression, weakness, sensitivity to cold, and enlargement of the thyroid gland that creates a bulge in the neck known as a goiter.
  • Inflammatory Bowel disease: involves multiple inflammatory diseases of the colon and small intestine, including Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative colitis.
  • Multiple Sclerosis: affects the brain and spinal cord through damage of the myelin sheath. Symptoms include visual disturbances, muscle weakness, trouble with balance and coordination, difficulty speaking and walking, paralysis, and numbness sensations.
  • Pernicious anemia: involves the inability to absorb vitamin B12 which decreases red blood cell production.
  • Psoriasis: a skin condition resulting in redness, irritation, and thick, flaky patches of skin that are itchy, dry, and silver-white in appearance.
  • Raynaud’s Phenomenon: a problem with blood flow that causes some areas of the body to feel numb and cold, and look discolored with exposure to cold temperatures.
  • Reactive arthritis: inflammation and pain in the joints as a result of an infection elsewhere in the body.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: occurs when the immune system attacks the tissues in the joints, most commonly occurring in the hands and feet, and results in pain, swelling, stiffness and loss of movement in the affected joints.
  • Scleroderma: a connective tissue disease that causes changes in the skin and connective tissues such as hardening and tightening.
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome: this autoimmune disease destroys the glands responsible for tear and saliva production, causing dry eyes and mouth.
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus: occurs when antibodies from the immune system attack the body, and can affect all organs in the body.
  • Type 1 diabetes: the immune system attacks cells in the pancreas responsible for insulin production. This results in the inability to control glucose levels and can cause kidney failure, vision loss, circulation problems, stroke and heart disease.

Autoimmune diseases do more than just affect you physically, they affect you emotionally as well. Your thoughts and emotions are closely tied to your physical body, and can create chemical reactions that impact your nervous, digestive, and endocrine systems, as well as your hormone and energy levels. Finding emotional relief can help you achieve physical benefits, and you can get this emotional relief through Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Tapping. When you use EFT Tapping to improve your emotions, feelings and thoughts, you create powerful leverage to help improve the imbalance in your immune system.

Because people who suffer from autoimmune issues frequently experience both physical and mental symptoms, EFT Tapping can make a real difference. When your body is sick, you often also experience subconscious limiting beliefs or deep emotions that can create an emotional reaction that causes an attack on the immune system. EFT Tapping can relieve negative thoughts, like you don’t deserve to be healthy, or that your body is supposed to fail at a certain age. By incorporating EFT Tapping into your life, you can begin an emotional healing process that has the possibility to relieve some pain and suffering and put you on the path to a healthy life.
