Lupus Causes + Alternative Care
- Lupus is an autoimmune disease where your immune system “attack” its own tissues causing inflammation throughout the body. If lupus becomes severe enough, it can seriously damage your kidneys, eyes, heart, lungs, blood cells, or nervous system. As with any autoimmune disease, understanding what may be contributing to this “self-attack” is key.
- The exact cause is unknown in medical fields and there are not really definitive lupus specific tests to diagnose it. Most likely there is an underlying genetic component which can be “flipped on” by toxins, unhealthy lifestyle, stress, food allergies, emotions, and viruses.
Some folks are just more prone to autoimmune diseases in my opinion, and if you are one of these people, then making necessary changes can empower yourself in a new direction towards health and wellness. If you simply try to medicate and “control” symptoms, you are missing a real opportunity for healing. Lupus is not about one thing its about many complex interactions resulting in inflammation. Just giving anti inflammatories is not a long term solution. Often these medications have side effects and eventually they will weaken your body in other ways.
- I often advise people with Lupus to take a physical and emotional inventory of their lives. What it is in your life that supports health and vitality and what simply does not? Genetically susceptible individuals who can for unknown reasons develop an autoimmune issue must look at how stress, toxicity, leaky gut, food allergies, inflammation, and “stuck” emotions contribute to the activation of this disease.
My approach is to perform a comprehensive assessment of all laboratory tests, diet, nutrition, lifestyle, stress, and liver and kidney function and then prepare a personalized program of core foundation nutrients, cleansing, dietary changes, improved digestion, stress management, and balance any hormonal or neurotransmitter issues. There are many natural anti inflammatories to help with symptoms while the underlying issues are being addressed to bring relief of the physical symptoms.
- The biggest mistake people making in trying to achieve improved health is to choose one vitamin or supplement and expect total body results. The truth is the body has different needs and one product is not the answer.
