Immune System Recommendations?
Ted, I have read the info you have given on lupus on the Earth Clinic website and have a question. My husband has sarcoidosis which is an autoimmune disease - when people don't know what it is, I usually just say it is a lot like lupus - can affect different organs... his is in the lungs and he does have fibrosis. So.. my questions is do you want to suppress the immune system or improve? I have never known if I should have him take NAC and vitamins or would that do more harm. I realize you may not be familiar with sarcoidosis but it is an immune disease. It really upsets me that all they do is prescribe predisone I wonder why there are no answers for immune problems...... Any comments you have would be appreciated. PS(his dr. is totally against any "Herbal" (that's what he calls it) help - I had asked him about some clinical trials they had with retonic acid?(vit A) and he knew nothing about it.) Thanks, Pat
