Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

Lupus erythematosus + alopecia totalis


I would like to ask which adaptogen would be suitable for me. I have lupus erythematosus for 8 years, sometimes I feel better, sometimes I'm worse, I'm very tired and I suffer from various infections. To make it short while 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 the adopogenes could be possible and at least partly solve my problem. Thank you for your answer and wish me 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 of it. If you intend to use a medicinal plant to treat a particular serious illness, 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 tried something wrong with 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 therefore have to try them gradually, knowing that it is quite possible that nothing in your case will do anything at all. Adaptogens I would recommend testing 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 a ginseng, then try adding a schizander, then a stapler and finally a gloss. The caterpillar is somehow extra, because it is really expensive and you should not be able to adjust the dosage for testing the adaptogens.

Your chances of improving the status are small, but not zero. If no plant / sponge from the short list listed above, 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 bark, seed caraway seed, black pepper ("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 Chinese liquorice, pineapple, green papaya salad. This second list, which I was mostly inspired by one of Dr. Duke 's personal prescriptions, is not exhaustive. Visit the herbivore / herbivore or the TCM 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 glossy glossy, which you can try at the same time . But that's what I'm saying at the end, because I do not want other amazing herbs because of the adaptogenic celebrities suffer from lack of attention :-)
