Lupus Causes: The Holistic Health View

Lupus causes are believed to be the result of a number of factors combined.

Lupus is the result of your immune system malfunctioning and attacking healthy tissues in your body. Thus it is called an auto-immune disease.

Lupus is not contagious. It is simply something gone wrong inside you. However, there are triggers or things that could turn on the lupus. Here are the most common triggers that are considered lupus causes.

In most cases, the exact cause of lupus is unknown but the triggers are known. Here are the most common ones we found. There is research on additional potential causes that, once the research is compete, we will share with you.

Causes of Systemic Lupus Erythematous

Liquid Chlorophyll: We mention this first as this is an important part of the advanced Water Cures protocol. It can cause flair ups in those with Lupus and chlorophyll made from alfalfa should not be used by those with Lupus.

Genetics:Lupus can be connected to genetics. There is a higher incidence of people with lupus having family who have a history of lupus. Family history does not mean you will get it however.

Chemical Exposure: causes lupus for some. Once there is no more chemical exposure, the lupus goes away. Two substances in particular include trichloroethylene in well water and silica dust.

Sun Light: Being in the sun may trigger a lupus attack. You may experience internal symptoms or skin lesions.

Drug Induced Lupus: This is lupus brought on by exposure to certain kinds of medications. Some blood pressure medications, anti-seizure medications, and antibiotics can cause lupus symptoms. Once stopping the medications, the symptoms go away.

It is important to note that this kind of lupus goes away once the medication that causes the symptoms is no longer being taken.

In our research, we found one case where an African American woman who was diagnosed and treated for lupus had drug induced lupus caused by acetaminophen.

Acetaminophen or APAP is not a commonly considered drug that causes lupus.

Environmental Cause: Lupus can be triggered by environmental factors such as exposure to ultraviolet lights, cigarette and cigar smoke.

Vitamin D Deficiency: No wonder that there is a shortage of vitamin D since those suffering from Lupus often times avoid the sun. One case controlled study found a possible connection and suggested this as a bio-marker for both status and disease activity. (

Hormone Imbalance: Pregnancy can cause some to experience lupus symptoms. The studies are not conclusive but hormones are being considered as a possible connection with lupus in women.

Viruses and Bacteria Bacteria and viruses are being considered as potential causes of lupus.

Among the suspects are cytomegalovirus, parvovirus and hepatitis C, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)

Chronic Unintentional Dehydration: According to Dr. Batmangehlidgh, lupus is caused by and can be corrected by not having enough water and unprocessed sea salt in our diet. More on his research will be coming in future posts. We feel this is the most important lupus cause to be considered.

The Most Common Lupus Causes

These are the most commonly reported on lupus causes. In our research, there are other things that are being considered as factors that cause lupus. So far, outside of chronic dehydration, there is no one thing that causes lupus. Yet, science says they don't know. If they don't know and water has not been studied, how can it be discounted?

We will add additional research going on as time allows and will include the information here in the future.

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.
