Holistic approach to treating sarcoidosis is based on re-balancing your body energetic and chemical disturbances on several different levels.
All the approaches are based on natural substances and looking at your body as a whole rather then parts of ill or healthy organs.
Melatonin use in holistic treatment of sarcoidosis
Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally produced within our bodies and is primarily aimed at regulating sleep. A study on its use that was conducted in Italy reported back a significant improvement in almost all patients after the 2 years of the study.
What is the role of melatonin in holistic treatment of sarcoidosis?
As far as the research show melatonin helps the body of a sarcoid sufferer on several levels:
- It scavenges the free radicals
- Inhibits cytokine production and thus reduces inflammation
- regulates hormone production through regulating the sleep mechanism
Controversy over the Safety of Melatonin in Autoimmune Diseases
This controversy is due to the fact that Melatonin actually, in its nature, boosts the immune system. Many researches are underway to look into whether it’s completely safe to use Melatonin in autoimmune disease.
Nutrition guidelines in holistic treatment of sarcoidosis
Sarcoidosis and vitamin D
The most important nutrition guideline that finds its way to all the holistic protocols of treating sarcoidosis is avoidance of Vitamin D since it is common for sarcoidosis patients to develop oversensitivity to this vitamin. When designing a holistic approach to sarcoidosis treatment it is important to know whether you are hypersensitive to vitamin D.
What are symptoms of vitamin D hypersensitivity?
If you are hypersensitive to vitamin D, you might experience some or all of these symptoms: nausea, thirst, declining general health, kidney failure and kidney stone.
Special Cleansing diets in holistic treatment of sarcoidosis
Cleansing diets are designed as a part of the holistic approach of sarcoidosis treatment. These include various forms of detoxification and purification of the body. Also, herbal remedies are included. Most common herbs to be used in the holistic treatment of sarcoidosis are:
- Aloe Vera
Discussion is ongoing about the possible side effects since these herbs have also an immune boosting effect.
Breakthrough in sarcoidosis research
The problem with sarcoidosis is the lack of knowledge in modern medicine on the causes of the disease. But, lately, some exciting news has been reported on the discoveries of underlying chemical imbalance and causes. Based on this, a new new treatment protocol is fashioned with amazing reported success rate.
