Treatment of scleroderma in traditional medicine involves a complex approach, because all the thesaurus organs must be treated simultaneously in order to break the vicious circle of the disease. As an area in each organ is regenerated, a symptom disappears, similarly to the domino effect, until all the manifestations are completely eliminated.

TREATMENT OF SCLERODERMA BY TRADITIONAL MEDICINETHERAPIES
Scleroderma or systemic sclerosis is a multisystemic disease, pertaining to thecategory of  collagenosis;it is manifested by a pathological proliferation of the collagen cells in the body, which together with other extracellular proteins - are deposited in excess integuments and tissues.These processes will lead tofibrosis of the teguments, of the bloodvessels, of the gastro-intestinal tract, of the heart, of the lungs and of the kidneys.There are also rheumatic manifestations,such as inflammation of the organs of thelocomotor and cardio-vascular apparatus,accompanied by articular pains.Scleroderma was classified into:localized and generalized scleroderma,depending on how deeply the tegumentand the internal organs are affected.In the localized forms, the fibrosis process involves only the tegument, the musclesand the tissues in their close proximity. It does not affect the internal organs, but the skin losesits integrity in time and the lesions become permanent. There can be distinguished to clinicalsubforms of the localized scleroderma:
 
morphea
, manifested by spare dermatoses on the fingers, on the arms, on the forearmsand lower limbs. Skin loses its elasticity, it grows pigmented; it becomes hardened andthick

linear scleroderma
is localized in one of the lower limbs; is a strap of linear hardenedhyperpigmented tegument In children, the sclerodermic process may arrest even thegrowth of the bone in the affected limbIn the generalized forms, scleroderma starts by an inflammatory process, followed bythe induration of the tegumentary tissue on the limbs, trunk and face. Tissue fibrosis alsoaffects the esophagus, the intestines, the lungs, the heart and the kidneys. The pathologicalalterations of the cardio-vascular system pose the risk of hypertension and cerebral vascularaccident. The patients with generalized or systemic scleroderma show the symptoms of the CREST syndrome: 
 
 
tegumentary indurations;
 
 
rheumatic symptoms: arthritis;
 
 
esophageal disorders: disorders in the muscle functions, and disorders of theesophageal tube, burning in the esophagus and in the chest;
 
pulmonary fibrosis;
 
congestive cardiac insuficiency;
 
renal dysfunctions;
 
Raynaud syndrome symptoms: spasms in the capillaries that vascularise the fingersand the toes, the nose, the tongue and the ears; the areas inadequately vascularizedchange their color into blue, white and then into red when they are exposed to verylow or very high temperatures, or when the patient undergoes very powerful emotions.
Causes and treatment
The pathological process of collagen proliferation is caused by a dysfunction in theproduction of this protein. The production of collagen is done with the participation of thethesaurus organs, except the heart, namely the liver, the lungs, the pancreas, the spleen andthe kidneys. The disorders in collagen production occur when the areas carrying out thesefunctions in the respective organs become non functional or work at low capacity, as a resultof a poor innervation and of a vascularisation too rich but with a low oxygen supply.
