Best Treatment of Sarcoidosis is Through Herbs
A person is said to be healthy when he is free from all kinds of disease and each of his organs is working properly. Nowadays everybody wants to be fit and have a strong immunity to keep themselves free from all kinds of infection. Our immunity is responsible for fighting with a specific type of viral or bacterial infection. There is a condition when multiple organs of the body start to get affected called Sarcoidosis where the immunity instead of protecting starts to attack the body. It is also known as the Auto-immune disease.

What Causes Sarcoidosis?

These are some of the reasons which trigger the overreaction of the immune system and through this, the immune cells start to get inflamed leading to granulomas. The granulomas start to build upon the specific organ.

Treatment for Sarcoidosis
According to modern science there is no specific treatment for Sarcoidosis they will prescribe medications like corticosteroids, hydroxychloroquine, etc but these are not the proper solution for the problem. At last, it might lead to other problems which can lead to more complications.
According to Ayurveda auto-immune disorders are caused due to accumulation of endotoxins in the body. The collection of Ama (Toxins) in the circulatory system and lymphatic system results in an imbalance of the immune system. This disturbance makes the immune system very weak and results in the accumulation of antibodies in the organ forming a lump. Ayurveda provides excellent herbs that are useful in treating Sarcoidosis without even causing any other complications.
