The aim of this mini-review is to introduce most prevalent autoimmune diseases, emphasize the importance of sympatho-parasympathetic imbalance in these autoimmune diseases, demonstrate how such imbalance can be effectively treated using the bioelectronic medicine, and describe potential mechanisms of bioelectronic medicine effects on the autoimmune activity at the cellular and molecular levels.
