The 3 best herbs for autoimmune problems are the ones I use and they help me control breakouts and get it back to normal quickly.
These are not your typical immune-boosting herbs. In fact, using herbs that boost the immune system can be detrimental. They can cause your immune system to get so out of control that they literally eat you alive.
No, we want herbs that calm and regulate proper immune function. These herbs help get things back to normal. There are specific herbs that will help you protect certain organs and systems, but they work directly on your system.
Here’s the key: don’t try them yourself. You need a qualified herbalist to prepare these herbs. Like most things, if abused or abused, they can cause serious harm.
- Japanese knotweed – He is not well known for his immune system, it really works. This herb is best known for being invasive and treating Lyme disease. This is one of the 2 herbs that are making sensational headlines for allowing the body to completely rid itself of all Lyme bacteria and concurrent infections. Knotweed does this by reducing inflammation and regulating the immune system. It allows the immune system to peak when fighting something and then relax when the fight is over. For autoimmune problems, this herb calms the immune system under normal conditions and allows it to function when an infection appears.
- Turmeric – Yes, this super spice is also here. This herb reduces inflammation by helping the adrenal glands produce anti-inflammatory hormones. It doesn’t actually stop inflammation, it just works to keep it in check. Turmeric also protects the body from attacks, including self-attacks. There are also now several studies showing that turmeric can reduce the frequency and intensity of lupus attacks.
- Ginger – Helps calm the digestive system and since there is more digestive system than the rest of the body combined, that’s a good thing. Ginger also stimulates the body to reduce inflammation and supports the proper production of T cells and other immune components. But you need to be careful, too much for too long can have reverse effects.
Although the grass of the knots is not a food, the others are. You can get them at the store and start eating them as part of your daily routine. If you want to use them medicinally, speak with a qualified herbalist.
Speaking of food, you have to start with your diet. Eliminate allergens (soy, milk, wheat) to see if your symptoms improve.
