Symptoms of Scleroderma That Can be Cured by Natural Treatments:
Symptoms vary depending on the organ systems involved:
– Stiffness of hands and feet at times accompanied with pain in the joints.
– Swollen fingers and hands.
– Tight skin around the hands, face, or mouth causing the skin to appear shiny.
– Improper movement of food in the intestines leading to indigestion, heartburn, acid reflux.
– Difficulty swallowing.
– Shortness of breath, wheezing.
– Small blood vessels present in fingers and feet narrow as the body’s reaction to extreme cold temperatures or emotional stress.
Natural Treatments Cure Scleroderma Caused by:
– Excess collagen (insoluble fibrous protein) deposits in the skin or internal organs.
– Abnormal immune system. The immune system, for unknown reasons, turns against one’s own body attacking and destroying healthy tissues.
– Environmental factors like exposure to industrial solvents, hair dyes, etc.
Types of Scleroderma:
Scleroderma is neither contagious nor malignant.
Limited cutaneous scleroderma (morphea): In this form the skin hardening is limited to a specific area primarily lower hands or lower feet.
Diffuse cutaneous scleroderma (systemic sclerosis): In this form a larger skin area is involved with at least one internal organ being affected.
Certain groups of symptoms define subtypes of systemic sclerosis namely CREST syndrome which is a form of systemic sclerosis characterized by –
Calcinosis (excess calcium deposits occur in soft tissues).
Raynaud’s phenomenon (vascular changes seen in extremities leading to extreme sensitivity to cold and psychological stress).
Esophageal dysmotility (changes in the esophagus causing swallowing difficulties).
Sclerodactyly (thickening of skin noticed primarily in fingers and toes).
Talengiectasia (multiple dilated blood vessels visible generally on the face, upper trunk area, and hands)
There is no complete cure for scleroderma. Managing the disease depends on organ system complications. Treatment options may include medications, lifestyle modifications, regular exercises, and stress management.
Natural Treatments That Can Cure Scleroderma:
– Low-fat diets benefit scleroderma patients. Reduce intake of poultry, cheese, butter, etc. Avoid highly processed foods and stick to whole fruits and vegetables.
– Evening primrose herb is a natural vasodilator and this herbal oil is recommended for scleroderma sufferers.
– Flax seed oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and has anti-inflammatory properties thus beneficial for scleroderma sufferers.
– The Chinese herb ginkgo biloba helps in proper circulation of blood flow through the body relieving symptoms of scleroderma.
– Wear protective clothing minimizing exposure to cold.
– Increase consumption of magnesium in diet. Magnesium helps preventing calcification of soft tissues. Magnesium rich foods include pumpkin seeds, wheat and oat bran, almonds and cashew nuts, soy, etc.

– Massage therapies are beneficial as they are stress relievers and increases blood circulation to the skin tissues.
