I was reading an article on another forum about this. I have Sjogren's and Hashi's.
If we have an autoimmune illness caused by our immune system attacking our body, isn't it counterproductive or even harmful to take supplements/vitamins etc that claim to 'boost' our immune system? Thereby making it attack our body even more forcefully? Don't we need to be dampening down our immune system rather than giving it a 'leg up' to cause even more problems? Can vitamins/supplements/herbals exacerbate the situation? Thoughts?
