Some homeopathic medicines that have shown positive results in Sjogren's syndrome or which cover the symptom picture well are:
Nux-m, Tub, Tub-m, Silica, Brass-n-o, Lapr, Pert-vc, Dulcamara, Antim-crud, Cuprum, Fl-acid, Puls
Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc.
I have never been to a Homepathic Doctor, so I can offer no help there, but of the info available on the net, it lists all of the very same things.
I hope you find this helpful, and hope that someone can tell you of their success with this treatment.
Wishing you well,
You're right Nomad, this is a wonderful discovery! We are useless without proper sleep. My Rheum told me that is where the 'brain fog' comes from, being in chronic pain, and lack of proper sleep, from being in chronic pain'.
I seems as though D3 and B12 are deficiencies from the Fibromyalgia world, through the world of all autoimmunes, it may not be every single person, but it seems to be a common problem.
My GP did extensive tests on my vitamin status, but they came up clear, keep in mind that my Chiro had already put me on good pharmaceutical grade vitamins years before.
The neurologist I went to worked within these lines too, but after many visits and expensive tests, he could only give me a diagnosis of 'Stiff', which was a total insult to me and my general practitioner who sent me there! You have one who is working well for you, hang on to that one!
Glad the melatonin is working for you!
Sorry Nomad, I didn't catch what you wanted me to comment on. Please run that by me again?
Look what I just got a hit on, when I 'googled' vitamins for Sjogren's. I think I put a discussion on evening primrose oil on the natural healing group.
I think one of your Doctors should check the D3 and B12 on blood tests to determine just how much D3 and B12 you need. As the last thing you need is too much of it, I'm really not sure you can get too much or how it might affect you, that really should be discussed with one of your physicians.
Karyn, I can look up what the recommended dose of each is, that way you are at least taking the minimum.
Gee, I think you have 2 great choices, I'm not really sure which I would take, perhaps even speak to both, and ask them what they have to offer?
