Herbal Remedies for Lupus

Lupus is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disorder, where the body's immune system attacks various tissues and organs in the body. It may affect many organ systems including the skin, joints, and internal organs and is often associated with inflammation of the connective tissue of the body. It is can lead to damage of the kidneys and other organs.

With such a complex disorder, there is no easy cure. A total health program designed especially for the individual based on their constitutional and life-style patterns is essential. Specific herbal treatment includes anti-inflammatories, immune tonics, and herbs to strengthen the connective tissue. Use tonic herbs and heat-clearing herbs when necessary based on individual needs.
