Did you know…?

Did you know the body can sometimes attack itself?These are called Autoimmune Disorders. This is when the immune system recognises body cells as being alien rather than as self and attacks them as if they were an antigen.

Examples of autoimmune disorders are Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Type I Diabetes.There has been recent research into how autoimmunity affects the nervous system.

It has been long thought by scientists that the nervous system exists independently from the immune system. This is because it was only discovered in the 1990s that antibodies could cross the blood-brain barrier.

Now there is an accepted linking between certain nervous symptoms e.g. muscle spasms, memory lapses and autoimmunity.This is opening doors on theories that certain psychiatric illnesses such as depression and schizophrenia may also be of autoimmune cause.
