 Sjogrens's Syndrome

Sjogren's syndrome is a chronic disorder that causes dry eyes and mouth and effects over 1 million people in the United States alone. This condition is classified as an autoimmune disorder that often lasts the person's entire life. It is named after Dr. Henrik Sjogren a Swedish eye doctor who is credited as the first to describe it. Primary Sjogren's syndrome occurs by itself and is not associated with other diseases. Secondary Sjogren's syndrome occurs along with rheumatic diseases like: Rheumatoid arthritis , Lupus , Polymyositis, and some types of Scleroderma. Rheumatic diseases are conditions that affect joints, bones, muscles, skin, and may effect other organs. Sjogren's syndrome can affect people of any race and any age. However it affects women more often. ...more

Nutrient / Supplement Importance
( 1 - 10 )
Helpful notes
Methionine 10 aids in cell protection and preservation, important in skin formation and in low white blood cell count both of which can be problems for people with lupus or Sjogren's syndrome. Methionine works very well in supplements that also include omega fatty acids in their formula.
Magnesium 8 low intake of magnesium has been linked to Lupus related disorders and a good source of magnesium is a quality multi-vitamin & mineral supplement especially one that includes calcium, zinc, and garlic. Magnesium also helps with PH balance in the body and for protection against bone loss.
Aloe vera 9 herb that helps with stress and healing in the body  (see Genesis below)
Olive leaf extract 9 herb aids in healing
Red Clover 9 herb to detoxify and cleanse the blood 
Dandelion 9 herb that works with Red clover  (see Genesis below)
Echinacea 9 herb that helps with the immune system (see Immunity below)
Essential fatty acids 9 important for people with lupus, aiding with arthritis prevention, protection of skin cells, and is required for production of all body cells. Fatty acids are found in omega fatty acids from fish and flax and borage seed oils from plants.
vitamin C 8 vitamin C helps Sjogren's syndrome patients by strengthening and normalizing immune system function. Usually can be taken in a good multi-vitamin and mineral supplement. Be sure that it is not synthetic vitamin C.
Bioflavonoids 8 work with vitamin C  (see Mega Juice below)
Multi-vitamin & Mineral supplement 9 vitamin B complex, inositol, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E, and others all serve to help the body with Sjogren's syndrome symptoms. A daily supplement provides nutrients that promotes general good health and well being. (see NutraPack below)
Garlic 8 garlic has been shown to help strengthen the body's immune system which can be weakened by Sjogren's syndrome.

Sjogren's syndrome, changes occur in the immune system which serves as the body's defense against disease. In Sjogren's, the immune system control is affected. This causes white blood cells to invade glands in the body that produce moisture like both the tear and salivary glands, and also the Bartholins glands located in the vagina. They can destroy the glands and cause them to stop producing moisture.

Sjogren's syndrome can also cause problems in other parts of the body, including: joints, lungs, muscles, kidneys, nerves, thyroid gland, liver, pancreas, stomach, and even the brain.
