Lupus erythematosus + alopecia totalis


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'm very tired and I suffer from various infections. To be a little ill at the time 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 adoptors might be possible and at least partially 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 resolving 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 may not be related or, on the contrary, may be the cause of it. If you intend to use medicinal plants for the treatment of particular serious diseases, 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. But, on the other hand, 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 have to try them gradually, knowing that it is quite possible that in your case it will not 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 that it would be convenient to start from the end of the sequence: Try to start a ginseng, then try adding a schizander, then a stack and finally a glossy cork. The caterpillar is somehow extra, because it is really expensive, and it is not allowed to move on the dosage when trying 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 exactly suits your illness. To be specific, a list of other herbs for testing may begin as follows: bark peel, rosemary seed, blackberries, blackberries, celery, chamomile, hornbeam, oregano, peppermint, rosemary, Gaulteria procumbens , Replace the cranberry 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 mostly inspired by one of the personal recipe of the famed Dr. Duke is not exhaustive. Visit the herbivore / herbarium or the TCM Center for more herbal tips. If you read my 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 I say that right now, because I do not want other wonderful herbs because of adaptogenic celebrities suffered from lack of attention :-)
