Home treatment for vasculitis addresses the underlying immune system problem causing the condition. Lifestyle changes involving proper nutrition and exercise will help detoxify the body and correct pH balance. An apple cider vinegar tonic is one of the effective natural cures for this condition while home remedies like garlic help strengthen the immune system. The primary treatment goal for vasculitis is to reduce the inflammation and reduce or stop the immune response in affected blood vessels.
What is Vasculitis?
Vasculitis is an immune system disorder characterized by blood cells mistakenly attacked as foreign bodies, leading to inflamed blood vessels. There are many types of vasculitis, some of which are genetic. This condition can be either short-lived or chronic, causing blood vessels to scar, weaken, narrow and thicken. In severe cases, organs and tissues are starved for blood; this form of vasculitis can prove deadly. Some types of vasculitis may improve if left alone, but other types require long-term treatment.
Natural Remedies and Lifestyle Changes for Vasculitis
The most effective natural treatments for vasculitis utilize a holistic approach. Working to achieve a healthy immune system through a treatment regimen incorporating proper nutrition, exercise and detoxification should be the ultimate goal. Since vasculitis can attack all tissues and organs, natural treatments would address symptoms for that particular type of vasculitis. In general, vasculitis sufferers are also afflicted by a variety of flu-like symptoms which can be effectively treated with home remedies.
Proper nutrition is an essential home remedy for correcting the underlying immune system malfunction causing vasculitis. Raw organic fruits and vegetables, especially green leafy vegetables, fresh herbs and olive oil are especially useful in strengthening the immune system and regulating pH. There are strong links between illness and people becoming too acidic (ideal pH is 7.35 while the average person is 5.5-6.5). At least 30 minutes a day of aerobic exercise should become part of the treatment regimen.
Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic
ACV Tonic is a wonderful natural remedy for many of the vasculitis symptoms, with reported natural cures for, among other ailments, chronic fatigue, flu and allergies (an immune system problem). The acetic and malic acids in ACV have antiviral, antibiotic and anti-fungal properties. It’s important to use natural organic apple cider vinegar with the ‘mother’ as that contains the healing enzymes.
Garlic, Echinacea and Goldenseal are all excellent herbal treatments to boost the immune system. Garlic is particularly useful because of its anti-inflammatory and astringent properties. In addition, garlic is a useful home remedy as it has effective antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal properties. In addition to strengthening the immune system, Echinacea enhances lymphatic function while Goldenseal is an antibacterial that also detoxifies and cleanses the body.
Vasculitis is an immune system problem causing blood vessels to become inflamed and incapable of supplying organs and tissues with an adequate blood supply. Incorporating a holistic approach utilizing natural treatments and lifestyle changes will build up the immune system while alleviating fatigue and other symptoms.
