Can you cure Autoimmune Disease?
Autoimmune diseases are known to be lifelong conditions that can be managed and treated. According to modern scientific literature, autoimmune diseases are NOT curable – instead, they usually have periods of flare-ups (where symptoms worsen) and periods of remission (where symptoms are less intense or not noticeable at all). While this is the case, there is recent literature that is discussing the use of alternative treatments (such as stem cell therapy) that has been shown to completely reverse autoimmune diseases (not just put them into remission).
Recent research of stem cells for autoimmune diseases states that: “Stem cell-based therapies offer many exciting possibilities for the development of novel treatments, and perhaps even cures, for autoimmune diseases.” Other research has concluded that factors that trigger, perpetuate and exacerbate autoimmune disease are: modern Western diet, chronic stress, changes in gut microbiota, environmental toxins, sleep deprivation, vitamin D deficiency, reduced sun exposure, and other unidentified aspects of the modern lifestyle.
