Herbs for lupus nephritis
Licorice root is used to eliminate inflammation, which can help reduce your need for prednisone (which comes with many unpleasant side effects). It can help ease symptoms during a lupus flare.
Turmeric is one of the most beneficial herbs for lupus. Studies have shown that, in some cases, turmeric is as effective as steroids in reducing inflammation and lupus joint pain. You can also try taking an all-natural anti-inflammatory agent, such as Zyflamend containing ginger and turmeric.
Astragalus serves as a famous Chinese herb known for its immune-building properties. In cases of lupus, where the immune system is out of control, the herb is used to suppress overactive cells that fight and destroy healthy tissue.
Garlic contains sulfur compounds and is a potent anti-inflammatory. It's also great for your heart. If you don't want the breath associated with eating raw garlic, garlic supplements are a great option.
However, if you are also taking immunosuppressants for your lupus nephritis, you should firstly talk with your health practitioner before you use any herbs.
These are some common herbs which are widely used because of its ability to support the immune system in fighting off colds & flu. However, some herbs enhance the immune system by increasing white blood cell production, so it is best avoided by lupus nephritis patients.
