Top Homeopathic Remedies for Sjogren’s Syndrome

Sjogren’s syndrome is an autoimmune disorder that attacks the glands that make saliva (salivary glands) and glands that make tears (lachrymal glands). When the salivary and lachrymal glands get destroyed, it leads to a dry mouth (xerostomia) and dry eyes (xerophthalmia). Apart from these glands, Sjogren’s syndrome may also damage other parts including joints, lungs, thyroid gland, kidneys, skin, and liver. Homeopathic medicines for Sjogren’s syndrome help in the symptomatic management of the disease. Nux Moschata, Belladonna, and Rhus Tox are the top homeopathic medicines that help treat Sjogren’s syndrome by moderating the overactive immune system.

Reasons and Risk Factors for Sjogren’s Syndrome

Sjogren’s syndrome is a disease of the autoimmune origin where the immune cells start to destroy healthy body tissues as a result of a misplaced immune response. The glands that make saliva and tears are destroyed in Sjogren’s syndrome. Certain risk factors predispose a person to develop Sjogren’s syndrome. These factors include a genetic predisposition and having any another autoimmune disease including lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. When Sjogren’s syndrome appears in association with any other autoimmune disorder, it is known as secondary Sjogren’s syndrome. Sjogren’s syndrome arising without any other related autoimmune condition is known as primary Sjogren’s syndrome. Women are a higher risk to develop Sjogren’s syndrome as compared to males. It is mostly diagnosed at the age of 40 years or above.

Symptoms of Sjogren’s Syndrome

The significant symptoms of Sjogren’s syndrome include dry eyes (xerophthalmia) and dry mouth (xerostomia). Along with dry eyes, other attending eye symptoms include itching, burning, stinging, redness and a sand-like gritty sensation in the eyes. Dry mouth may lead to difficulty in speaking, difficulty in swallowing and the tongue adhering to the roof of the mouth. Dryness and cracks of the lips may also be present. Having a dry mouth also predisposes a person to get oral fungal infections and tooth decay. Other symptoms include pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints, fatigue or tiredness, and dry, itchy skin. In some cases, there may be swelling of the salivary glands, prolonged dry cough, and muscle aches. Women may experience vaginal dryness.

    Hello Dr. Sharma,
    My wife is diagnosed with Sjogren’s Syndrome.
    She has been taking homeopathic treatment for the past 12 years & recently (last 6 months) we tried Allopathy treatment. But the allopathy medicines included steroids, so we have stoped using them.
    Now again we are back to Homeopathy treatment.

    My questions to you are :
    How serious is this Sjogren’s Syndrome ?
    Is this cure-able or non-curable disease ??

    Will eagerly wait for your response.
