Ki Your Health Defence Tablets

Good day everybody,

Each tablet contains herbal extracts equivalent to the dried herbs:

Astragalus membranaceus root 5g (Astragalus)

Lentinula edodes mushroom 3g (Shiitake Mushroom)

Olea europaea leaf 2g (Olive tree leaf)

Welcome to LUpus Patients Understanding & Support (LUPUS) at HealthUnlocked.!

Please do NOT take anything without discussing the tablets/products with your lupus specialist. There is a belief that if it is "natural" it cannot do any harm. This is untrue. There are many "natural" or "health products" that can and do harm. For example, certain Chinese preparations can cause further kidney damage to those with lupus nephritis.

Other products may interact with medications prescribed. They can either make the medication less efficient, or they can cause "over dose." For example, St John's Wort is a "natural" antidepressant and therefore anyone taking antidepressants, will by taking more than originally prescribed.

Do you think that if these products were "good" for lupus patients that our doctors would not know about them.

I was given this advice by my lupus specialist:

1. First, research as to whether it can do no harm. If this cannot be guaranteed (verified by medical doctors), do not take it!

2. Second, if it costs money - don't buy as the only people to profit are the manufacturers!

My conclusion:

I took a look at their PDF. All they say,in a nutshell, is it "MAY" help . . . I could not find any medical studies on this product. It "may" be harmless but do you really want to spend a great deal of money on a product that "may" - and this "may" may also be part of the "placebo" effect - help boost your immune system when people with lupus have an "over active" immune system that fails to distinguish between foreign bodies such as bacteria and virus and one's own body cells!

Patients with lupus are vulnerable and sadly, there are those who target vulnerable groups. We want to feel better! We want SLE to disappear! Don't risk either your health or your bank balance!

I am glad you raised this very important issue: natural products!
