The weather is starting to change over from summer to fall; with that being said our bodies need a extra boost and or kick to maintain a healthy immune system. I have introduced Five Essential Herbs to Treat Autoimmune.
Sarsaparilla and Yarrow are commonly thought to treat autoimmune symptoms by purifying the blood and reducing joint and muscle inflammation. Sarsaparilla has been used all over the world as a folk remedy for gout, arthritis, fevers, digestive disorders, psoriasis and other skin diseases. Yarrow also displays antiviral properties.
Yucca plant extract is thought to decrease stiffness and pain in muscles and is also good for skin/dermatology-related autoimmune diseases. Yucca can be consumed by mouth or can be found in body soap and shampoo.
Chlorella or Spirulina is a natural “algae” (cyanbacteria) powder that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins and other nutrients. When harvested correctly from non-contaminated ponds and bodies of water, it is one of the most potent nutrient sources available packed with vitamins, amino acids and chlorophyll.
Green tea is another affordable option; it contains polyphenolic compounds, which possess anti-inflammatory properties. In studies, green tea extract protects rats against autoimmune arthritis by modulating disease-related immune events.
