In brief: Danger
Treating lupus with complementary medicine would have to be done by someone who is very familiar with lupus, not just complementary medicine as certain "healthy" supplements such as echinacea can worsen lupus.
Also, delay in traditional medical treatment can be deadly in lupus kidney or brain disease. Try stress reduction, smoking cessation, a healthy diet, routine exercise, and avoidance of sun.
