Natural Options Help Combat and Relieve Scleroderma

Natural Options Help Combat and Relieve Scleroderma

(NaturalNews) An estimated 300,000 people in the U.S. suffer from scleroderma, an autoimmune related disease that involves changes in the skin, blood vessels, muscles, and internal organs. Mainstream medicine attempts to treat the symptoms of scleroderma with immunosuppressant drugs, NSAIDS and corticosteroids, but has no cure and little advice for prevention. However, the world of natural healing has much to offer to help address scleroderma.

Scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a widespread chronic connective tissue disease; its name comes from two Greek words: "sclero" meaning hard, and "derma" meaning skin. It is not contagious, infectious, cancerous or malignant. Skin symptoms are the most often ones associated with scleroderma and include:

*Blanching, blueness, or redness of fingers and toes in response to heat and cold
*Hair loss
*Hard or thick skin that may be abnormally dark or light
*Shiny hands and forearm
*Small white lumps beneath the skin
*Tight and mask-like facial skin
*Ulcerations on fingertips or toes
