Lupus: CAM Therapies for Specific Conditions

  • DHEA, the steroid hormone, may help improve symptoms of lupus in some people. In a 1995 study of twenty-five female lupus patients at the Stanford University Medical School, improvement was noted in energy, patients required less medication, and symptoms decreased.

 

Traditional Chinese medicine has achieved some success in treating lupus. In a controlled study, Chinese herbs were administered to twenty-seven lupus patients, along with prednisone. Prednisone alone was administered to a control group. The group using herbs responded more favorably.
