Lupus erythematosus + alopecia totalis

Hello,

I would like to ask which adaptogen would be suitable for me. I have lupus erythematosus for eight years, sometimes I feel better, sometimes worse, I am very tired and I suffer from various infections. To be a little ill at the time when I was diagnosed with this disease I started to lose my hair gradually, it was so far I was my hair came completely and basically no treatment helped me. I would like to ask if it is possible for adopogenes and to solve my problem at least in part. Thank you for your reply and wish a nice day. Katka U.

Thank you for another virtually irresponsible question. Unfortunately, in a situation similar to yours - that is, in a situation of chronic, treatment of a defying immune problem - there are many people. It is virtually clear that your alopecia totalis is autoimmune and has the same cause as lupus erythematosus . Your various infections with autoimmunity do not have to or can be the cause. If you intend to use medicinal plants for the treatment of particular serious illnesses, it is my duty to inform you that only the treating physician has the right to decide on the course of treatment and my voice is only advisory. On the other hand, however, it is clear to me that medical science has already tried something unsuccessfully for you.

What adaptogens are considered in autoimmune problems

It is beyond doubt that some adaptogens you should try. But it is not clear what. You will have to try them gradually, knowing that it is quite possible that in your case it will not do anything at all. Adaptogens I recommend to try are: Cordyceps sinensis , Ganoderma lucidum , Rhodiola rosea , Schisandra chinensis , Panax ginseng . Sorting is alphabetical only, but it happened to happen when testing is to start from the end of the sequence: Then start with ginseng, then try to add a schizander, then a stapler and finally a glossy mirror. The caterpillar is somehow extra, because it is really expensive and it can not be used for the dosage of the adaptogens.

Your chances of improving the condition are small, but not zero. If no plant / sponge from the above short list does not kill, do not give it up and try the other plants. There is still a chance that even outside the list of famous adaptogens you will find something that suits your illness exactly. To be specific, a list of other herbs for testing can begin as follows: bark, seed caraway, blackberry ("black cumin"), celery, chamomile, horseradish, oregano, peppermint, rosemary, Gaulteria procumbens , replace the cranberry with the fruit), thyme, yarrow, turmeric, galangal (if you can not, replace the ginger ) and maybe also liquorice Chinese, pineapple, green papaya salad. This second list, in which I was largely inspired by one of the personal recipe of the famous Dr. The Duke is not exhaustive. Visit herbivore / herbarium or center for more herbal tips. If you read other articles, it will not be a secret to you that my favorite autoimmune disease is ginseng and shiny glossy shine that you can try at the same time . But I say that right now because I do not want other wonderful herbs because of the adaptogenic celebrities suffered from lack of attention :-)

Sincerely,
