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 do autoimmune disease affect fertility and pregnancy?
    I would like to start trying for a baby next year. I have chronic erticaria and raynauds, and I have been tested for lupus twice and recieved a low positive result. I am really worried.

    1. .

      Systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus) may appear for the first time, worsen, or become less severe during pregnancy. How a pregnancy affects the course of lupus cannot be predicted, but the most common time for flare-ups is immediately after delivery.

      Women who develop lupus often have a history of repeated miscarriages, fetuses that do not grow as much as expected, and preterm delivery. If women have complications due to lupus (such as kidney damage or high blood pressure), the risk of death for the fetus or newborn is increased.

      In pregnant women, lupus antibodies may cross the placenta to the fetus. As a result, the fetus may have a very slow heart rate, anemia, a low platelet count, or a low white blood cell count. However, these antibodies gradually disappear over several weeks after the baby is born, and the problems they cause resolve except for the slow heart rate.

      Autoimmune Disorders: The abnormal antibodies produced in autoimmune disorders can cross the placenta and cause problems in the fetus. Miscariage often happen in 1st and 2nd trimester of pregnancy. Pregnancy affects different autoimmune disorders in different ways.

      Raynaud’s comes in two forms. One is Raynaud’s disease, which occurs in isolation. The other is Raynaud’s phenomenon, which occurs in conjunction with other diseases, including scleroderma, a hardening and shrinking of the skin; lupus, a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the skin, joints, kidneys, nervous system and mucous membranes; and rheumatoid arthritis. Raynaud’s phenomenon also commonly occurs in people who use vibrating or hammering tools or instruments
      It’s not known why more women than men have Raynaud’s, but women get autoimmune diseases such as scleroderma and lupus more than men do, and Raynaud’s often develops with these.

      Pregnancy often aggravating urticaria.

      Your condition is very complicated.But there are many worst condition. Baby are worthed, every women ready to sacrifice almost everything to have baby. You might need ask your family to support you, get as many information as you can, and very important to cooperate with your physicians. Select them carefully. We want you and your future babies to be safe.

      Best wishes.

    Does anybody know how persisting conditions affect the Swine Flu?
    My daughter is a school teacher and she was recently diagnose with Lupus. My question is does certain disease makes you more likely to catching swine flu, or if you do catch it does it make it worse?

    1. traveltrollop

      I also have lupus. The effects of swine flu on lupus depends what medications she takes like steriods or immune suppression drugs These drugs may suppress her own natural immune system and thus make it difficult to fight the H1N1 flu. If by some chance she does get the flu, it could cause her to have a flare or some type of secondary infection. Does she have any renal involvement? This might also determine the severity of the flu. I would suggest that she be very aware of any person or child that might be sick. Also, as the new reports having been saying, wash your hands, wash your hands!! She should also speak with her own Dr. to discuss any fears she may have. I’m just trying to take precautions, but I’m not going to stop living because of this outbreak. If the virus becomes more widespread, I will take more precautions. There is no need to panic! Good luck and be well!

    why is the butterfly rash in systemic lupus erythematosus was called such?
    other than being shaped like a butterfly, are there any other mechanisms on why this butterfly-like appearance or rashes becomes visible on the affected patients? I hope you could help me. thanks!

    1. Bre

      Only 30% of patients with lupus have a butterfly rash.
      Since Lupus is a system disease, meaning inside. Lupus can affect kidneys, joints, blood etc. As eczema it’s an autoimmune disease.
      I know I’m off topic….
      The butterfly rash will get worse with sunlight as most lupus patients are photosensitive, like having sensitive skin, it’ll act like a sunburn.
      It’s an anti-inflammatory action of the body.

    How do I deal with lupus with out taking drugs?
    I have had lupus for three years, but I just started get treatment from a lupus specialist at Magee womens hospital. I take a small dose blood pressure medication. But my doctor wants me to take plaqunil and prednesone. But those drugs have so many side affects and I hear so many bad things about how they help one thing but then something else breaks down, Then you are on this cycle of adding on medicine after medicine. I want to live, but I don’t want to lose my eyesight, have liver problems, or other complication caused by these medicines. I know their has to be a way of life change, or natural medicine that will help and have less or no side affects. I lived three years without medicine or help. But I do notice that I had more flares lately. I need to make a decision, I recieved my plaqunil in the mail a week ago, i need to decide if I am going to take or find something else that help to present to my doctor at my next appointment. I want to live but not taking alot of medicine

    Here is the question i have to answer:
    Compare your disease with systemic lupus erythematosus and evaluate which disease is worse and why (think about body systems affected, treatment, and prognosis)

    what happens if the immune system attack itself?
    My aunt has some strange things on her skin and I think her immune system attacking itself do you think that’s right?
    I just want to know what happens if the immune system attack itself?

    1. bunmi~

      Thats like system lupus erythema. SLE

      •Skin rash — a “butterfly” rash over the cheeks and bridge of the nose affects about half of people with SLE. The rash gets worse in sunlight. The rash may also be widespread.

      For SLE, theres no cure, but the symptoms can be controlled..
      SLE (lupus) is an autoimmune disease. This means there is a problem with the body’s normal immune system response.

      Normally, the immune system helps protect the body from harmful substances. But in patients with an autoimmune disease, the immune system cannot tell the difference between harmful substances and healthy ones. The result is an overactive immune response that attacks otherwise healthy cells and tissue. This leads to long-term (chronic) inflammation.

      The underlying cause of autoimmune diseases is not fully known.

      SLE may be mild or severe enough to cause death.

      SLE affects nine times as many women as men. It may occur at any age, but appears most often in people between the ages of 10 and 50. African Americans and Asians are affected more often than people from other races.

      SLE may also be caused by certain drugs. For information on this cause of SLE, see drug-induced lupus erythematosus.

      I hope your aunt gets better, her skin rash may just be a slight reaction from anything

    In lupus: is the mechanism of the disordeer an overreaction to antigens or allowence of antigens?
    Please give me a striaght forward answer with no in-between possibilities. Sources which would support your answer would be appreciated. Don’t bother answering if you are just guessing – that would be rude.

    1. Susan S

      Lupus is an overrection of your immune system.

      “Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can affect various parts of the body, including the skin, joints, heart, lungs, blood, kidneys and brain. Normally the body’s immune system makes proteins called antibodies, to protect the body against viruses, bacteria, and other foreign materials. These foreign materials are called antigens.

      In an autoimmune disorder like lupus, the immune system cannot tell the difference between foreign substances and its own cells and tissues. The immune system then makes antibodies directed against itself. These antibodies — called “auto-antibodies” (auto means ‘self’) — cause inflammation, pain and damage in various parts of the body.”

    What is lupus and how does one get lupus?
    My annoying ex-boyfriend and I got into a huge argument over what lupus really is. My dad, a physician for very sick adults, told me that lupus could be anything because it disguises itself as other diseases. My ex told me, his source being a doctor, that lupus was a skin disease and that it starts out as a skin disease. Any medical information?

    1. Anonymous

      The cause of lupus is unknown. It falls under the category of autoimmune diseases, which are noninfectious diseases where the body is believed to be, for some reason, attacking itself. There is one type of lupus which is called “discoid lupus erythematosos” which affects only the skin and is usually not very serious. The other lupus can attack MANY different areas of the body and its seriousness can go from mild to extremely severe. There is not one specific test for lupus and it can be hard to diagnose since its presentation may differ greatly from person to person and it may appear differently at different times even in the same person. Some of the more common presentations may include joint pain and swelling, chronic or intermittent low grade temperature, severe fatigue, red skin rashes (the “classic” lupus skin lesion is a red rash appearing over the nose/upper cheeks in the form of a butterfly–but of course not everyone gets that)–lupus can also affect the kidneys, the cardiovascular system, can cause blood disorders and may cause many other symptoms as well. In some cases lupus patients may experience head hair loss. If lupus is suspected, the best type of doctor to see would be a rheumatologist who would be familiar with the group of blood tests which may indicate that a person MAY have lupus–since there is no one blood test. If a person is diagnosed as having lupus, treatment would be directed at stopping the abnormal body response that is causing the patient’s symptoms–there are a number of very different types of medications which can be used to try to achieve this.I have given a very general description of a very complicated disorder and would suggest you read up on it –perhaps WEBMD would be a place to start.

    What is the difference between Lupus affecting the nervous system and MS?
    What symptoms are different for each? How are they different and how are they the same? How common is it to have Lupus (SLE) and a neurological disorder such as MS?

    1. Linda R

      Both lupus and multiple sclerosis are autoimmune disease in which the immune system goes haywire and attacks healthy parts of the self.

      In multiple sclerosis, the immune system destroys the myelin sheath or fatty covering of the nerves. This can result in loss of transmission of signals.

      In lupus, neurological symptoms can include things like seizures and neuropathy, or nerve pain. The mechanism by which lupus causes these things is not the same as in MS.

    How long does it take prednisone to get out of your system?
    I had about 60 mg for an allergy incident. How long could the prednisone affect other meds in my system that it interacts with ? A day or two? Longer? Thank you.

    1. Etienne de Quercy

      Prednisone is used for many different indications including: asthma, COPD, CIDP, rheumatic disorders, allergic disorders, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, adrenocortical insufficiency, hypercalcemia due to cancer, thyroiditis, laryngitis, severe tuberculosis, lipid pneumonitis, multiple sclerosis, nephrotic syndrome, myasthenia gravis, and as part of a drug regimen to prevent rejection post organ transplant.

      Prednisone has also been used in the treatment of migraine headaches and cluster headaches and for severe aphthous ulcer. Prednisone is used as an antitumor drug. Prednisone is important in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Non-Hodgkin lymphomas, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma and other hormone-sensitive tumors, in combination with other anticancer drugs.

      Prednisone is also used for the treatment of the Herxheimer reaction, which is common during the treatment of syphilis, and to delay the onset of symptoms of Duchenne muscular dystrophy and also for Uveitis. The mechanism for the delay of symptoms is unknown. Because it suppresses the adrenals, it is also sometimes used in the treatment of congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Prednisone is also used to treat sarcoidosis and lupus.

    I have lupus (sle) Can anyone advise me on the long term affects of Plaquenil?
    I have sle (lupus) and am on the drug plaquenil which apparently is a drug that they use to treat malaria with. They say it can cause you to lose your eyesight – Is there anyone out there on the same drug and how do you feel about it. I went off it for a couple of month’s against my Doctor’s advice and regretted it as I got sick again. Thanks for your help.

    1. mgnysgtcappo

      Long term effects can be damage to vision, liver and kidneys. Plaquenil is an old medication and is used by doctors who aren’t very current in their Lupus medications. Presently, Cellcept is a much better medication to treat Lupus flares (Myfortic is Cellcept in a time released form and can be used if stomach issues arise). Cellcept was initally used as an anti rejection medication for transplant patients but it’s ability to lower the immune system response has proven it to be very effective in controlling SLE.

      There are many additional drugs in Phase II and Phase III clinical trials. Most recently, Rituxan has been used to target the “B” cells of the immune system and seem to be showing good progress.

      I would suggest bringing up the names of these medications with your rheumatologist and inquiring to their benefits in your case. Obviously, every case of SLE is different and there may be specific reasons why your doctor has kept you on Plaquenil but in most cases we find that it’s more a lack of current education rather than any specific objection to newer medications.

      If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
