While I was doing research for a new blog post I found this term "hygiene hypothesis", so I decided to investigate and see what it had to do with autoimmune disorders. I found the information interesting and that this isn't a new term. This has been around since the late 80's.
Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disorder that many lives are being touched by. This is one autoimmune disorder that I do not have, but I can empathize with those who do. I find reading books written by others who are living with this disease informative. If you are living with MS you may find these memoirs comforting, filled with hope and maybe full of answers to your questions.
October is... A very busy month when it comes to an "awareness month". I want to focus on the days that relate to autoimmune disorders.
