Science Says: To answer the question, 'What is Lupus?' Science classifies it as a disease of unknown etiology. This means it is a disease of unknown reason or cause.
We disagree because the human body does everything it does for a reason. We have found lupus to be a disease of chronic fluid and electrolyte imbalance. This means not enough water and not enough of the right kind of salt taken in the right way.
Both water and salt, when taken in the right way and in the right amount can eliminate the symptoms of lupus for most people. Note: you will not find this information in the medical books and it is not the subject of any scientific studies. It is however, logical and when you consider the evidence, you will see it. More importantly, water cures works with lupus.Note about Liquid Chlorophyll: For unknown reasons, this causes flair ups. Chlorophyll is an important part of the advanced Water Cures protocol. Those with lupus should not use chlorophyll made from alfalfa.
This means it hangs around for 6 months or longer or reoccurs continuously.
This is a condition where the immune system turns on and attacks the some of the same body it is a part of.
The attack is by antibodies. Most often, these antibodies most often affect the blood vessels of the lungs, kidneys, brain, skin and the joints.
When the blood cells are attacked, inflammation, swelling and even bleeding (called vasculitis) can occur.
Sometimes the antibodies attack the nucleus of the cell. Sometimes they attack the membranes inside and or outside the cells. Sometimes they attack the blood proteins or structures of the blood cells.
Lupus is diagnosed when the symptoms are identified and then blood testing identify the antibodies present when there is lupus.
This means it gets worse and then it goes away.
It is estimated that more than 1.5 million people have lupus and as many as 5 million have it world wide.
Women of child bearing age are the ones most often to develop lupus. Lupus is an equal opportunity disease. It can affect any ethnic group and any race.
