Lupus Face Rash, Malar or Butterfly Rash

Reading Time Approximately 4 Minutes

The lupus face rash, sometimes called malar rash, comes from the latin 'mala' which means cheekbone. When a rash is the Malar or Butterfly rash, it is often associated with Lupus.

The Appearance of the Lupus Rash

The rash goes across both cheeks and across the bridge of the nose. They may be pink, red or purple in color. They can be blotchy or evenly colored. The rash can be flat or raised.

The butterfly rash is not the only lupus face rash that might be experienced. The lupus skin rash can extend to other parts of the face and can be more severe than just a flush or welt like rash. Although the rash is a sign of lupus, it can also be of other conditions or diseases.

Warning: the theories presented here are controversial
but are backed by both logic and science.

The rash can be mild or severe but is not usually painful. It can be itchy if it is more like a rash than a blush and some patients even report a ‘hot’ feeling with more severe malar rashes. It may only appear in about 40 percent of those suffering with lupus.

Cause of the Malar or Butterfly Rash?

    Common understanding: lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease. It causes our bodies to attack the cells of the body. The most often affected organs are the brain, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, blood vessels, joints and skin. The nerves are also damaged by the effects of lupus. Nobody knows what causes lupus, according to the medical books and journals.

Lupus Face Rash: A Paradigm Shift

    Although nobody will say what causes lupus, people become experts when saying what does not cause lupus. We would like to suggest a different way of thinking.

    Lupus is Caused By Chronic Unintentional Dehydration

    The first to propose that Lupus is caused by chronic and unintentional dehydration was Dr. F. Batmanghelidj, MD., author of Your Bodies Many Cries for Water.

    Dr. Batmanbhelidj believed and demonstrated in his writings that Lupus is the survival strategy of a drought stricken body. Even the Malar Flush or Lupus face rash is a sign of dehydration in the body.

    The face is more than just a place for our nose, mouth and eyes. How many nerve endings do we have. And what happens when there is a disruption of those nerves by any of a number of causes. Consider the consequences of trigeminal neuralgia.

    What would happen if there was a drought in the body? What if there was not enough water to maintain optimal health? What response would the body have when dehydration set in?

    The normal response is to start to shut down the less important functions to conserve water for the more important functions. This shut down process will be dependent on our genetic makeup. Each of us will have a different shutdown sequence. This is why in our research we have found that the water cures protocol will help over 70 different diseases or conditions, all of which are different.

    Since diseases and conditions often involve a cascade of various thing happening in our body, depending on our weaknesses and strengths, we each will be affected differently. Depending on our diet and nutritional habits, the symptoms can be less or more severe. The commonality with almost all disease, chronic intercellular water shortage and lack of proper electrolytes.

    Water in the body is essential for life. Our nerves n our face are very dependent on hydration. They are genetically programmed to shut down for some when chronic dehydration sets in for those who have a predisposition to lupus.

It's More Than Just A Pretty Face

Dr Batmanghelidj went farther with his theory. A decade after his book, the ABC's of Asthma, Allergies and Lupus, there is research now being conducted on what at the time sounded preposterous. His understanding was also somewhat limited based on what we now know.

Your face acts like a receptor dish much like a radar. It receives energy and sends that energy to the brain for processing. Because we are not conscious of this happening, we do not give it any consideration in our daily lives. Again, because of genetics, the effects are varied for each of us.

The energy our face can pick up and our brain can process can be anywhere from the visible light to sub light energy. Do you remember hearing that light is both wave and a particle. The energy is in what is called a photon.

When the photons are in the visible spectrum, we can feel them. They cause our skin to release the steroid like substance inside our body that results in what we call vitamin D.

When we cannot sleep at night, one of the first things considered is the light. Since we now know that our face is a receptor, in effect we can see with our eyes closed, light could affect sleep. Especially important is removing the light from the blue spectrum, such as is emitted by computers and electronics.

Also consider the trigeminal nerves. Why are we endowed with such large nerves on our face. These are much thicker than anywhere else in the skin of our body. They branch out above and below the eyes and to the chin. Their thickness in relationship to the area they serve indicates they have a much more important role than just measuring temperature and touch.

Evidence that our bodies can process the transmission of energy of is sub-light intensity can be seen observed in the hospital use of magnetic therapy.

There is a second factor in the dehydration being part of the lupus face rash as well as other rashes.

Our skin is well endowed with histamine producing mast cells. It is these cells that produce the inflammatory warning signal of the lupus face rash. The other skin eruptions in addition to the malar or butterfly rash associated with lupus are likewise caused by the histamine response.

The most natural antihistamine is water. You can improve the transport of water to your cells by adding unprocessed sea salt to your diet. The fastest way to get the salt and the 30 to 70 minerals that act as buffers into the blood requires we dissolve the salt in our mouth. This way it gets into the blood through the mucous membranes.

How to Diagnose Lupus

Because of the blood work necessary to make a diagnoses, you will need to see a doctor. It is not possible to diagnose lupus by the lupus face rash. The question is, when it comes to treatment, what if there was a better way? If the treatment options are not working or not desirable to you, contact a physician who is familiar with the water cures protocol and use water and salt as a solution to your health challenges.

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.
