The goal of available treatment is to reduce the severity of symptoms, prevent organ damage, and minimize its impact on the lives of people with lupus. Traditional medicine for lupus will be more effective if it is balanced with medical drugs recommended by doctors.

Lupus or commonly called Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs because a person's immune system attacks his own cells and tissues.

Inflammation caused by lupus is known to have a thousand faces because it can attack various body organ systems such as the skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs.

Lupus is referred to as an autoimmune disease. Under normal conditions, the immune system will protect the body from infection. Unlike lupus sufferers, the immune system attacks the body itself.
