Can acupuncture alleviate lupus?

Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Can acupuncture help alleviate lupus?

A: Unfortunately, lupus is relatively new and not fully understood. Also, autoimmune conditions like these have no known allopathic cure. The symptoms of this condition can be managed with acupuncture, lifestyle and dietary modifications, and herbal formulations. I recommend contacting a licensed practitioner to determine the proper course of action.
