Question by bluemoonmuse2: How do you boost your immune system to fight off a cold, allergy, or flu if you have an autoimmune disease?
Am writing a school paper about multiple sclerosis, so if you can relate your answer to MS, that would be awesome. I am very puzzled: The immune system is misidentifying myelin as a foreign invader, so if you "feed" nutrition to the immune system to fight off a virus or pollen, for example, doesn't it also increase the autoimmune response that destroys the myelin sheath?
autoimmune diseases are kind of controversial.
