In brief: No
it may only help you deal with the stress, pain, depression etc associated with a serious chronic disease.
See an immunologist who is open to alternative therapies. He/she will help you include positive thinking in your regimen but give you the right medical treatment at the same time.

In brief: No
Although emotional well-being can help your immune system in it's normal function, positive thinking and faith cannot replace medical treatment when dealing with an autoimmune disorder.
