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.

  8. Hi Dr. Sharma,
    Your website is very well organized and informative.
    It is a wonderful fact that your family heritage is connected to such a helpful and healthy
    practice like homeopathy.

    I live in the US and do not put my confidence in pharmaceuticals and “educated” “professionals”
    that treat symptoms and not the causes.
    I have a lack of saliva and tightness in my eyes at night when I sleep and wake up. They are dry. During the day, it is not really an issue. I have been to a homeopathist in the US, but they were not sure as to the cause.
    Years ago, I became stressed from work and developed allergies that homeopathy cured, but this one issue has not resolved. Should I take NUX Moscatta?
    Thank you for your insights and your good work……..

  19. Srinivasan. says:

    Hi Dr
    Thank you for this information. I’m having this Sjögren syndrome for past 7 years. But I thought my problems were due to my lifestyle as a sanyasi living with voluntary contribution of some people in the public.

    I got treatment from a few allopathic doctors for individual problems like eye problem, throat dryness, knee joints pains, frequent ruination and sleeplessness etc. Now only I am aware of this.

    Your advice on this pages are giving me some confidence. My age is 58. Male, Indian . Homeless and living with available free places.
    Now for past few months I’m eating only liquid meals and fruit juices .
    Please try to give me your opinion about my health recovery to normal condition. Can you suggest some good medicines. Do you find possibilities to relieve my pain.
    Dry eyes, dry mouth, joints pain, itching skin, restless urination and so on.
    I cannot speak with open voice because of pain in the throat and mouth.
    Thank you.
