Suggest natural remedies for myasthenia gravis

a friend of mine has just recently been diagnosed with myashenia gravis, and his eyelids are now sluggish. According to the research on-line there is no cure known to mankind. With some added research, I ve found some think tumeric can help; St. John s Seng supplement. What has helped your patients from a natureopathic perspective? Can you suggest anything please. Am putting together a care package to mail At the moment he has been given intensive steroid medication, and as a result the muscles in his legs have just caused a very painful achilles tendon injury. Can you help me, help him (he is elderly and does not use the internet; his dearest wife is an excellent nurse).
