There are more than 80 known autoimmune disorders--diseases that occur when a person's immune system turns against itself. Some of these diseases include Type 1 diabetes, Graves disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Although there is a genetic component to these diseases, they usually emerge after a period of illness or stress. Once a person receives a diagnosis of an autoimmune disorder, there are a number of nutritional steps for the patient to strengthen the immune system and limit the progression of the disease.
