Natural Lupus Treatments, Fact of Fiction?
Are there any Natural Lupus Treatments available? Many people that suffer from Lupus have been wondering that for decades. There are many different approaches to treating Lupus within traditional healthcare. This common approach usually will be various combinations of medications, which are not without side-effects. All autoimmune diseases have some common causes. What you won’t hear, when you attempt to heal from autoimmune diseases and issues with traditional healthcare is anything about the causes of these illnesses.
Once you have been diagnosed with lupus, a traditional doctor will develop a treatment plan based on your age, symptoms, general health, and lifestyle. The goals of any “traditional” treatment plan are to:
- reduce inflammation caused by lupus
- suppress the overactive immune system
- prevent flare-ups, and treat them when they occur
- control symptoms like fatigue and joint pain
- minimize damage to vital organs
People with Lupus often require other drugs for treatment of conditions commonly seen with this Autoimmune disease. Some of the examples of these medications might include, antibiotics for infections, antihypertensive drugs for high blood pressure, diuretics for fluid retention, bone-strengthening drugs for osteoporosis, and anticonvulsants for seizure disorders. All of these drugs come with a list of side affects that can ultimately affect other areas of the body. A traditional doctor will instruct his Lupus patients to take these medications exactly as they are prescribed. Forgetting to do this or taking the wrong dosage at the wrong time of day will affect how well the drugs work and whether your symptoms of lupus can be brought under control. This type of treatment does not address the real problem of Lupus, it merely addresses and treats the symptoms of Lupus. Treatment of this type does not look or take into consideration the causes of Lupus nor any other natural lupus treatments.
