Lupus and Joint Pain:

The Ultimate Natural Treatment for Lupus

If you have lupus and joint pain, there is something you can do. At Water Cures, we feel that the ultimate treatment is the Cater Cures protocol. If the theory of the cause of lupus is correct, we can help you to stop it without ills, bills or pills.

Traditional wisdom says that Lupus is an autoimmune disease and the cause of Lupus is unknown. We disagree.

Joint pain is, for most people with lupus, the first indication that a flare (or attack) is coming on. Joints with small bones such as our hands, wrists and feet. These will get stiff, difficult to move and will cause considerable pain. This pain is so limiting that many normal activities of daily living are impossible.

For some, there is ankle, knee and shoulder pain.

Lupus and Joint Pain Cause

The reason lupus causes joint pain is controversial. There is no disputing that Lupus causes inflammation in the joints. We suggest the reason is chronic fluid and electrolyte imbalance or what is more commonly known as chronic unintentional dehydration.

Before showing why dehydration is the cause, consider this...

Occam's Razor: the principle used in logic that among rival theories, the one with the fewest assumptions is the most likely to be the correct theory.

Science recognizes that the synovial membrane, the lining of knees, hands and hips thickens. The fluid fluid-filled sacs called bursae are likewise affected.

This change along with inflammation causes pain and swelling. The swelling and inflammation also affects the joints and tendons.

This inflammation in the connective tissue can cause the release of chemicals that erode and destroy the cartilage. It is not the same as arthritis although the medical treatment is the same.

Medical treatments usually recommend over the counter anti-inflammatory medications like Ibuprofen, aspirin and naproxen to lessen the pain and inflammation. The thinking is that the risk and damage these drugs do to the body is not as bad as the pain.

Additionally, warm heat from a shower or bath may help. Some find that cold packs help.

What if There Was A Better Way?

Some have tried another option called the Water Cures protocol. Unprocessed sea salt dissolved in the mouth (the electrolyte) and water help the body in numerous ways.

The minerals in the salt help provide for numerous physical functions of the body. The salt helps the water get into all the cells of the body. The salt helps get the water into cells that have no vascular support, such as the synovial membrane and the bursae, the kind of cells your joints are made of.

Also, the salt helps the body become alkaline in places it needs to be. Alkalinity helps the body fight inflammation.

Some think that to manage both lupus and joint pain, all is necessary is to help the body become alkaline. This is done by by drinking alkaline water. But, one word of caution here, the machines that electronically convert tap water to alkaline have some draw backs and should not be considered for long term use. Those on certain medications should not use the water from these machines at all.

Only water naturally alkaline or water that is made alkaline by filtration should be used.

The Future of Lupus Treatments and Cures

There have been no major breakthrough treatments for lupus in over 40 years. The book, ABC of Asthma, Allergy & Lupus was written in the year 2000. His theories had almost no medical support during his life. Now, after his death, a few doctors around the world have adopted his treatments for their patients.

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.

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.
