Microbiology deals with the smallest of living things: bacteria, fungi, algae, protozoa, and viruses. Immunology is the study of how the body protects itself from microbes that cause infectious disease and tumors. Lately, so many people getting autoimmune diseases.  While many people develop autoimmune disease without any identifiable cause, risk factors include being a woman of childbearing age, having a family history of autoimmune disease, being exposed to certain environmental irritants and being of certain races/ethnic backgrounds. 

Inflammation is the root cause of many diseases 

Though not all disease begins in the gut, many chronic metabolic conditions are hypothesized to be caused or influenced by chronic gut inflammation.  Our gut might not be the first place we look to for the root of our autoimmune disease but as the second brain, our gut microbiome is closely tied to our immune system. In fact, our gut microbiome touches multiple aspects of our health, including our mood and metabolism.  Chronic inflammation is the root cause of so many diseases, including: Heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension), nevertheless, some microbes do keep us healthy too.   

Bacteria that cause autoimmune  

They found that a common gut bacterium, Roseburia intestinalis, can trigger the disease in individuals who have a genetic predisposition. In those patients, the immune system's defender T and B cells react to a blood protein involved in clotting, and also to the bacteria, in certain amino acids found in the bacteria. 

Bacteria can activate various cells of the immune system directly (as the blue cell), or through regulatory cells (the “policeman” cell) that make some immune cells more active (like the green cell) and other cells less active (like the red cell). The beneficial gut microbes do this by ordering specialized immune cells to produce potent antiviral proteins that ultimately eliminate viral infections. And the body of a person lacking these beneficial gut bacteria won't have as strong an immune response to invading viruses. These beneficial bugs are called commensal bacteria. One of the most important functions of commensal bacteria is boosting the immune system. The surfaces of the body – the skin, digestive system, and the lining of the nose – are covered by a community of microbes called the normal body flora. They help protect the host from becoming infected with more harmful micro-organisms by acting as a physical barrierAutoimmune conditions are those where the body's immune system confuses healthy cells with unwelcome micro-organic intruders. Microscopic creatures—including bacteria, fungi and viruses—can make you ill. But what you may not realize is that trillions of microbes are living in and on our body right now. Most don't harm us at all. In fact, they help us digest food, protect against infection and even maintain your reproductive health.  Rheumatoid arthritis  (RA). It has been reported that the IgM response to some bacterial infections, e.g., Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, and Proteus mirabilis is associated with rheumatoid factor   Countries such as US and UK have higher prevalence rates than other countries.for the most autoimmune diseases. Since autoimmune diseases are caused by diet and Fast foods like these have become very popular around the world, but eating them regularly could be responsible for the global spike in cases of autoimmune diseases.  It's not known why autoimmune diseases develop, although most people who have an autoimmune disease have a genetic predisposition. An environmental factor such as an infection, stress, medication, diet or even ultraviolet radiation then triggers the symptoms of the autoimmune disease. 

A cure for autoimmune disease is much more challenging. Unlike cancer or infection, where the goal is to get rid of bad cells in the body, we must maintain an immune system. The key is to reduce inflammation by resetting the controls and help tissues and organs regenerate from the damage caused by inflammation. 

During the autoimmune nutrition protocol, nuts and seeds are avoided temporarily to aid digestion and gut healing. Coconut Is good for autoimmune The low glycemic coconut meat and water inside contain many healthful macro and micronutrients to support gut healing, fight inflammation and boost immunity 

Here are supplements that research shows may help reduce inflammation 

Curcumin. Curcumin is a compound found in the spice turmeric, which is commonly used in Indian cuisine and known for its bright yellow hue.  

Fish oil.   




Vitamin D.  


Green tea extract. 

Simple rules of thumb for anti-inflammatory eating 

Eat more plants. Whole plant foods have the anti-inflammatory nutrients that your body needs.   

Focus on antioxidants. They help prevent, delay or repair some types of cell and tissue damage.  

Get your Omega-3s.  

Eat less red meat.  

Cut the processed stuff  

Natural anti-inflammatory for humans 

Garlic,  ginger, pineapple, and fatty fish, are common foods that's rich in anti-inflammatory compounds.. Garlic is especially high in a compound called allicin, a potent anti-inflammatory agent that may also help strengthen the immune system to better ward off disease-causing pathogens. 

It is said that the microbiome is important for the immune system since it plays critical roles in the training and development of major components of the host's innate and adaptive immune system, while the immune system orchestrates the maintenance of key features of host-microbe symbiosis. Zinc also has protective effects against autoimmune conditions in which the body starts attacking healthy cells. (The author has his own study and views)
