Immune modulation


Dear Stephen,
I have noticed that a lot of herbs that are for “immune modulation” might actually mean immune “stimulation,” which causes me to launch into a lupus like syndrome with positive blood work for drug induced lupus. This goes away when I drop the offending drug/herb. In the description of your herbs, when it says “immune modulation,” what does that mean – “stimulating” or “regulating”?


Stephen’s response:
In general immune modulation means that if your immune function is low the herb will bring it up. If it is high the herb will bring it down. In general, when I say an herb is modulating that is what I mean by it.
Stephen
