1. since the said disease is Autoimmune in nature, thus in Ayurveda we consider the disease under 'AMA': which is formed due to weakness of the 'AGNI' [digestive fire], thus if the agni is promoted it can reduce 'AMA' which causes reduction and prevention of further production of auto-antibodies, hence ultimately disease activity of the autoimmune disorders can be controlled or minimized, thus 'Deepan' and 'Pachan' drugs are used [digestive and carminatives]
2. As the disease is systemic i.e. involving multi system thus treatment is directed towards specific system and since it is Autoimmune in nature thus Immuno - modulators [Rasayan] Chikitsa has to be given for longer duration.
3. Ayurveda can improve the life span and quality of life. Talakeshwara Rasa, Shudha Gandhaka is an excellent rejuvenator.Triphala is a well known medicine for GIT as well as skin disorder. Keeping in mind that all the Shamana oushadhi which are helpful for GIT, Respiratory System, CVS, Skin and Musculoskeltal system. Course of Vamana and Veerechana also showed a very good effect on the disease.
