Lupus is an autoimmune condition that can attack multiple organs, including the kidneys. Addressing kidney damage or inflammation requires two main actions: address the kidneys and address the factors contributing to kidney damage or inflammation.
There are many herbs to help with kidney disease. Astragalus, for instance, has been shown to reduce infection rates, decrease protein in the urine, and improve immune function in individuals with Lupus Nephritis.
Reducing inflammation is essential in any autoimmune condition, including Lupus. A few ways to do this are:
Avoid consuming your food sensitivities – I often test my clients for these
Heal the GI tract – a compromised gastrointestinal tract is often associated with autoimmune disease
High quality Fish oil – Omega-3’s are known to reduce inflammation, and higher doses may be more indicated by a Naturopathic doctor such as myself depending on the severity of the condition
