SLE and Homeopathy








SLE is one of the autoimmune disorders that occur when body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs. Systemic lupus erythematosus is a chronic disease which causes inflammation in the connective tissues, such as cartilages and the linings of the blood vessels.

It involves many organs and systems, including skin, joints, kidney, lungs, central nervous system.

The term lupus is used to represent a number of immune diseases that have similar clinical presentations and laboratory features.

Signs and symptoms of SLE vary among affected individuals.

Patients with SLE have certain episodes in which the condition gets worse and at certain times, it gets better.

In short, SLE  gradually gets worse over time, damaging the major and vital organs of the body and thus it can be life threatening.

In homeopathy, we always know the case of an individual in detailed way so to deliver the best treatment possible and medicines administered to the patient are on the basis of characteristic individuality and holistic approach.


The exact cause is yet not known.

But, a few of the factors are thought to be associated with the disease.

  1. Genetics ( Risk factor): people with lupus often have family members with other autoimmune diseases.
  2. Environment:
  • Certain drugs
  • Viruses
  • Physical or emotional stress

  1. Sex: (Risk factor): SLE affects women more than men. Women with SLE may experience more severe symptoms during their menstrual cycle and pregnancy.
