Recently, a TV entertainment program mentioned lupus disease and attracted attention. The son of the late Choi Jin-sil, who appeared on the broadcast, said, “Lupus disease has been cured” about his younger sister.
Lupus disease refers to a disease of the autoimmune system. It is a disease that causes problems in the immune system that protects the human body from external invasion, attacks healthy tissues of the body, and causes inflammation and tissue damage.
It is characterized by an overwhelmingly higher incidence of women, especially young women than men. Symptoms such as skin rash, fatigue, joint pain, and hair loss are very diverse. In severe cases, it can damage major organs, including the heart and kidneys. It is known as a disease whose cause is unclear and it is difficult to find a fundamental cure.
Good news was delivered to lupus patients. A research team from Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, published a study showing that ginger can be a light for lupus disease.
According to the research team, an experiment in mice with lupus and another autoimmune disease showed that the anti-inflammatory activity of a biological compound derived from ginger root (6-gingerol) helped relieve lupus symptoms.
“This is the first study to demonstrate the protective role of a ginger-derived compound against lupus.” This paper was published in the JCI Insight Journal and reported by Medical News Today.
The findings suggest that the anti-inflammatory activity of the ginger compound directly affects autoantibodies associated with diseases such as lupus and antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS). This is the promising news that ginger compounds can break the cycle of inflammation and serve as a potential treatment.
If the same results are found in human clinical trials in the future, the possibility of making supplements using ginger that can be used to treat blood clots and lupus has increased.
It is important to manage your symptoms on your own to minimize the damage caused by lupus. When going out, block the sun thoroughly, quit smoking, exercise regularly, and manage stress. Above all, you need enough rest. Some people with lupus sleep up to 12 hours a day.
