Herbal Remedies for Antisynthetase Syndrome

Abstract

Antisynthetase syndrome is an autoimmune disorder. Autoimmune disease is a condition in which the immune system mistakenly attacks its own body. Our immune system normally protects us from various bacterial, viral and other microorganisms infection. When our immune system senses these foreign invaders then it sends out an army of fighter cells to attack them and protects us. But in autoimmune disease, this immune system releases proteins called antibodies that attack the healthy cells. There are many autoimmune disorders such as Sjogren’s disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, Psoriasis, Ulcerative colitis, Atrophic gastritis, Systemic lupus erythematosus, Antisynthetase syndrome, etc. In this article, we are going to discuss Antisynthetase syndrome and its Ayurvedic management in detail.
