The moringa oleifera tree is now considered by many as a miracle tree for its medicinal benefits. The trees leaves are typically utilized to make moringa extract which includes anti-inflammatory components. Moringa also carries anti-toxins, anti-oxidants, vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids to develop one's wellbeing and immune system. With these perks, the World Health Organization, the European Union and other none government offices in the world appreciate moringa. To combat malnutrition, countries like the Philippines and Africa cultivate moringa trees to be utilized as components for drugs and cosmetic products, and also as products from bulk production and wholesale of its oil and powder form.

One of the most imperative functions of moringa is the truth that it inhibits the COX-2 enzyme which is accountable for swelling and pains in the body. In this case, lupus and the battle in opposition to it comes into the situation. In a nutshell, Lupus erythematossus is an illness with unknown reason which leads to the inflammatory conditions of several parts of the body counting the kidneys, joints, and the skin. Another truth about lupus is that it can influence anybody without thought to their age and sexes, and you can anticipate that things are not going to be pleasant. In addition, the pain of the production of the COX-2 enzyme particularly throughout the constant flare ups could be hard to bear. No one really understands what causes these flare-ups and many sufferers of lupus are continuously on the guard of how to stay away from them. This states that sufferers need to keep away from sunlight and eat foods rich in omega 3. The way of life of the lupus sufferer can be very costly because of all the drugs they need to take to inhibit the disease. Moringa being a cheaper form of alternative medicine and a source of nutrition, aids the sufferers to decrease their bills.

As it contains natural anti-inflammatory properties it is thought to be to be safer to use on the long term than the NSAIDs which can be addicting or can cause some unwanted unwanted side effects. There are lots of side effects to anti lupus drugs can do to a person. For example, it can affect the kidneys, the circulation, the digestive system and many more parts of the body. Apart from being less toxic, taking in moringa is also more effective. Now moringa is made in many forms and to name a few there are moringa leaves and powders which can be acquired in bulk over the Web.

    How likely is someone to die from lupus?
    My dad has had lupus for 2-3 years now. So far, it has affected his muscles, joints, and caused him to be tired, sensitive to sunlight, and has affected his kidneys. Because it has affected one organ, would it most likely affect others?

    Does anyone know of statistics for the death rate of this disease?

    Also any general or treatment info would be great.

    Or if you have Lupus.. It would be great to read your story.

    What are the best prescription meds for Cystic Acne?
    I was diagnosed with Lupus in March and have been very sick. I have had symptoms though for 7 years. Recently I have started having whiteheads all over my face that re-occur all day and over a dozen spots of cystic acne on my jawline, neck and chin. The cystic acne takes at least 2 weeks for each lesion to go away, but by that time there are several new ones. It is painful and ruining my skin. I saw another post on here that said they did not think Lupus had any relation to the cystic acne problem, but I am sure it does. I have never had acne like this in all my life, and whiteheads are an over abundance of white cells which makes sense because of the immune system issues with Lupus. I have tried all home remedies and over the counter meds and nothing is even touching this. Is there a very good prescription medicine for cystic acne that works with Lupus and does not have a bunch of ugly side effects,& that is not steroid based as I cannot take those? Thanks for any input you may have

      Wow I’m sorry to hear this, I guess if it is lupus related go to your doctor or a dermatologist, they can help you more than anything, keep your face clean by washing it twice a day. I’d recommend going to lush, its a store with only natural products so it helps a lot. Drink water, and keep a healthy diet. If this persists, laser isn’t a bad way to go. Good luck.

    If humans don’t need to eat animal products to be healthy, why do we need vitamin b12?

    B12 is said to only be present in meat and dairy, vegans are advised to take b12 supplements. Are there any other foods b12 can be found in naturally?

    1. Jody

      Your premise presumes that humans have always obtained their food from grocery stores, where it’s washed and packaged.

      In reality, there is plenty of B12 in a natural vegan diet. But it means eating some bacteria with your food.

      Not only is it harder to get B12 with washed and irradiated modern food processing practices, but the lack of exposure to non-lethal bacteria has clearly been shown to lead to weak immune systems and an explosion of autoimmune disorders in developed countries (these are mostly meat eaters, although it has nothing to do with eating meat). (Autoimmune disorders are things like allergies, ear infections, lupus, arthritis, diabetes, MS, etc.) In one example, the rates of autoimmune disorders were tracked before and after an eastern European country began to modernize and regulate food sales. People in that country used to buy naturally-grown produce from the roadside. Shortly after consumers switched to mostly buying washed produce from grocery stores, rates of even the most benign autoimmune disorders began to skyrocket.

      I’m old enough to remember when food allergies were all but unheard of. When I was growing up, allergies, in general, were uncommon, and no kids had food allergies. There was one fat kid in each class…max. Times have certainly changed, and not necessarily for the better.

      Remember, hominids were unable to hunt larger, faster animals before we developed tool usage. We’re simply too slow, and have no claws or big teeth to catch prey. Our physiologies didn’t change because we developed tools. It’s just that with tool use, we could hunt bigger, faster, more elusive prey. This is a very good thing for early hominids. When ANY species can broaden its potential food base, it stands a much greater chance of survival.

      Prior to tool usage, we still had the same physiological needs that we met with mostly plants, nuts, roots, insects, worms, small amphibians and reptiles, and many paleontologists suggest we scavenged, as well. We are biologically not much different than chimps and gorillas. Chimps rarely eat meat (although they do eat insects). Gorillas are pretty much herbivores. We’re not that much different, physiologically.

    How come some paralyzed people weigh very little?
    Ive always wondered because my ex girlfriend God bless her has Lupus and transverse myelitis and has been paralyzed for nearly 5 years now. She is 4’11 and 80 pounds. However, she looks healthy, she’s not a stick figure, and her doctor said that her weight is perfectly fine. I would always urge her to talk to the doc to see if she needs to gain weight but he’d always assure me she was fine

      Her muscles have atrophied, they are smaller and shorter. Her diet is likely designed by her doctor or a nutritionist to provide enough but not too much calories.

    What is a good diet regimen for a lupus patient to follow? What foods should be avoided?
    I would like to know what foods to stay away from and what foods may help people diagnosed with autoimmune diseases. What is a good diet regimen for this diagnosis? Are there any foods that are harmful or that should be totally avoided by lupus patients?

    1. Linda R

      Lupus patients should avoid alfalfa sprouts. They stimulate the immune system, just the opposite of what we need.

      Outside of that, here are some basic guidelines that work for me.

      1. Eat lots, and I mean lots, of fresh fruits and vegetables
      2. Limit or eliminate animal fat. We have a high rate of premature atherosclerosis. A healthy heart diet is essential.
      3. Limit processed foods
      4. Eat plenty of fiber (#1 will accomplish that)
      5. Get regular mild to moderat exercise-it improves immune function, lubricates joints and elevates mood. Ask your rheumy what would be good for you.
      6. Do not take echinacea or goldenseal. They also stimulate immune system.
      7. Some lupus patients find wheat gluten to be inflammatory, but many of us have no problem with it.
      8. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients, don’t put it in your mouth.
      9. Fish oil is anti-inflammatory. You can eat cold water fish like salmon to get that. A small amount of nuts is good, too.
      10. Make sure you get plenty of calcium. Our meds make us prone to osteoporosis. Exercise helps with that, too.
