Re: alternative immune modulators??

caroleye, is this touted as BOOSTING the immune system? If it is, personally I'd ask dr. before trying. My understanding is that we need to SUPPRESS, not boost, our immune systems, in that they're already both overactive and aberrant. I think conventional lupus therapies either modulate (Plaquenil) or flat-out suppress (steroids & immunosuppressants). I hope you update us on what you find out. Take good care, from Vee
