If you strengthen your immune system, does it follow that the immune cells which fight foreign invaders will also have extra ‘welly’ to attack your myelin?
I’ve just pinched this explanation:
Autoimmune disease occurs when an immune response attacks our own tissues. Like all adaptive immune responses, it is focused on specific antigens by T-cell receptors and B-cell receptors. In contrast to infection, the antigens that these cells recognise are processed from proteins within the target organ and this drives a chronic inflammatory process that disrupts the normal function of the tissue.
(I pinched that excerpt from https://www.immunology.org/public-information/bitesized-immunology/disfunciones-del-sistema-inmunitario/autoimmunity )
So I’ve always thought that while taking vitamin D is necessary for us (possibly alongside Vitamin K and together maybe with B12), and it probably can’t hurt to take a multi-vitamin, making the immune system as a whole much stronger wouldn’t be such a great idea.
Or am I barking up the wrong tree? Or just barking?
