I have believed for a long, long time that autoimmune diseases are reversible. I’ve seen people recover fully from autoimmune disease, including reversing the associated blood markers. They achieved these results by following healthy living principles for many years.
There is an autoimmunity expert from the USA, Dr. A. Fasano, who believes that several things need to be in place for autoimmune diseases to occur. Necessary factors include genetic predisposition, an environmental trigger, and the formation of leaky gut.
Up until a few years ago, many doctors didn’t believe in leaky gut. I’ve known about leaky gut for about thirty years, although back then we called it dysbiosis. We called it a permeability problem with the gut. We called it allergies. At the time, we didn’t understand the breakdown of the intestinal barrier and the mucous membrane. We didn’t understand how the tight cell junctions would open and allow antigen expression through there to trigger immune reactions.
Although we can’t alter genetic predisposition, we can modify environmental triggers and leaky gut. You need to follow a good, clean, healthy lifestyle and avoid putting any junk into your body.

I suggest eating clean, healthy foods, drinking fresh water, and living a low-stress lifestyle. If you follow these principles, you have a much better chance of not having a leaky gut, particularly if you don’t take regular pharmaceuticals, such as antibiotics.
It’s essential to understand the concept of repairing your digestive membrane, reducing your stress levels, and stopping environmental triggers from affecting your body. Do that, and you can reverse autoimmune disease.
In many cases, autoimmune diseases are determined to have no known causes. The only treatments available are steroids and painkillers. That’s crazy because there is always a cause.
The more chronic the pathology, the more difficult it will be to reverse autoimmune disease. That’s why it is important to start following a healthy lifestyle as early as possible in life. If we fix things early on, the body can self-heal. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22109896 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28588585 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30081517
