First Symptoms Lupus

The first symptoms lupus presents with resemble other diseases. This makes it difficult to diagnose.

For those who experience lupus symptoms, you should know that no two are exactly alike. Since the symptoms may come and go, it is very difficult to diagnose lupus.

Lupus Symptoms

Symptoms may develop slowly over time or appear rapidly. The symptoms may be severe or mild. You may experience the symptoms temporarily or they may be permanent.

Usually, it is experienced as a mild symptoms with occasional occurrences of worse symptoms. These occurrences are called flares or lupus flares. After the flares, the symptoms may disappear completely for a while or may simply improve.

Lupus affects so many different organs and in different ways. The symptoms you experience will to some extent depend on the organ or organs or body systems that are affected.

Hope for a Lupus Cure

There is hope for a cure for Lupus. It is called the water cures. More on this in the end of this section, where you will find links to the water cures protocol.

First Symptoms Lupus

  • arthritis like joint pain and joint stiffness (the most common symptom)
  • swelling in the joints
  • muscle pain
  • tiredness or fatigue that lasts longer than normal
  • unexplained fever greater than 100 degrees
  • mouth or nose ulcers
  • anemia
  • rashes
  • skin sores that get worse with sun light
  • sun exposure makes skin symptoms worse
  • butterfly shaped rash on the face that crosses over the bridge of the nose
  • Only a doctor can diagnose Lupus. He can only confirm the diagnosis with a blood test.

Advanced Symptoms

If the brain is affected....

  • headaches
  • dizziness
  • vision problems
  • behavior changes
  • strokes or seizures
  • memory problems
  • difficulty expressing thoughts

The 11 Criteria Used to Determine Lupus

Usually four of the 11 criteria indicate you may have lupus.

  • Malar rash (butterfly shaped rash across cheeks & nose
  • Skin rash (raised red patches)
  • Mouth or nose ulcers (often painless)
  • Nonerosive arthritis in 2 or more joints (arthritic inflammation)
  • Photosensitivity (unusual reaction to sun light causing rash
  • Heart-Lung involvement (inflammation of the heart lining and/or lungs
  • Neurologic disorder (seizures and/or psychosis)
  • Anemia (the result of damaged red cells, low white cell or low platelet count)
  • Kidney disorder (proteinuria or clumps of red cells in urine)
  • Auto Immune disorder (immune system attacks healthy cells)
  • Antinuclear antibodies test (ANA) – positive blood test for Lupus not induced by drugs

The Water Cures Option

According to the late Dr. Batmangehlidgh, Lupus is the result of chronic unintentional dehydration.

Interestingly, all of the first symptoms lupus presents with, they can be improved using the water cures protocol. When considering Dr. Bs research and writings, the water cures protocol seems like a viable holistic health treatment option for the treatment of Lupus.

Consider This: For years the high jump was approached the same way by athletes. Then one guy changed the way it was approached and the new records were set. Man has approached the treatment of disease the same way. Science looks to treat rather than helping the body care for its self.

There is not a lot of science that proves the water cures works. Yet, there are hundreds who are trying it and finding relief. If it works for you, please Share Your Story and help others.

The water cures protocol may not work for everyone. Yet the number of people that it has helped cannot be denied. We all need water. We need electrolytes like salt. The combination of the two in our health management allow us to heal a number of diseases or conditions.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

The Great Salt Debate
Here is the Science

We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

There is more to Water Cures than just salt and water. Diet, 50 to 80% raw food is best and exercise play an important part. And we believe the science is important too. Below is some of the research we found as to why Water Cures is the solution for better health.

Water Cures is not for Everyone

Listen to your body. Do not use this if you are under a doctors care. Do not stop taking medications without consulting your doctor. If you are on medications, consult your doctor if you start the Water Cures Protocol as it may change your needs.

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
