Autoimmune Disorder (A.D.) and TCM, Traditional Chinese Medicine

Many people suffer from autoimmune disorders, but what is this problem? How does it happen? Is there any treatment for it? Let’s get into it.


According to Western medical theory, the disorder comes from the immune system when it cannot differentiate its body tissues. When the immune system attacks the existing body tissues, it results in an autoimmune disorder. It occurs due to microorganisms such as transplanted tissue donated by another person, bacteria, blood, cancer cells, chemicals, such as toxins, medications and food preservatives.


Autoimmune disorders can destroy any human organ or any type of body tissue. The resulting destruction of tissue can cause abnormal growth or function of the organ. The blood components, including red blood cells, blood vessels, or skin are commonly affected. Another way autoimmune responses can occur is through reactive antigens. For instance, rheumatic fever may result from cross-reactive antigens and heart tissue.


The autoimmune disorders include systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, Addison disease, multiple sclerosis, graves disease, Sjogren syndrome diseases, Hashimoto thyroiditis, vasculitis, Rett syndrome and diabetes mellitus Type 1 .

Signs and symptoms of A.D.: Low-grade fever, weight loss, fatigue, dizziness and general malaise swollen face.

Diagnosis: Blood tests may reveal increased amounts of white blood cells, and levels of certain proteins called complements, as well as specific immunoglobulins or antigens.

Western medicine treatment: To control the immune response, you can use corticosteroids and immunosuppressants, such as cyclophosphamide & azathioprine but these drugs can have powerful side effects!

A Poem for My Patients:

Move Forward

Happiness is an inside job.
Action is better than empty talk.
Most diseases are formed by negative emotion.
Throw it away! Leave the negative situation!

The past is the past. Life is short.
Live for the present and plan for the future.

Courage is resistant to fear.
Find your way, my friend.
Move forward!

Peace and Harmony,

Old Master Tom Fung.
