4 Types of Lupus

There are four types of lupus. Only three will be considered on this website. The good news, the three we focus on, we have heard reports from the users of Water Cures that they have ended their symptoms and have finally found relief.

You Need To See A Doctor

If you think you have lupus, you should seek medical attention. This can be a life threatening condition. Only a doctor can tell you if you have lupus. Preferably, go to a doctor that specializes in lupus. It is easy to get diagnosed with the wrong kind of lupus. We can say this because a dear friend found after years, she was misdiagnosed and once stopping acetaminophen, she got her health back. But it took a specialist to find this and get the right diagnosis.

One of the types of lupus discussed below is easily resolved by eliminating the offending drug. However, some drugs, like acetaminophen, are not thought to be the culprit because they are so prevalent and affect so few. Bottom line, you have to see a doctor to find out for sure.

Four Types of Lupus

There are 4 types of lupus. Each type has commonalities and differences with the others. This is important when considering using water cures to eliminate the symptoms of lupus.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosis (SLE)

Systemic lupus is the most common form and is the most serious form to have. It can affect the kidneys, heart, lungs, brain, blood joints and even the skin.

The symptoms experienced can vary from person to person. The symptoms can change or even go into remission (disappear) and flare up (become active again).

Commonality: Dehydration. Water Cures can help with this type of lupus.

Discoid or Cutaneous Lupus Erythematosus

Discoid Lupus only affects the skin. This kind of lupus causes rashes. The rashes usually appear on the face, neck and scalp. Although not affecting internal organs, 1 in 10 will eventually develop systemic lupus.

About 80 to 85% get a malar flush followed by a malar rash or butterfly rash which extends from one cheek across the nose to another cheek.

Commonality: Dehydration. Water Cures can help with this type of lupus.

Drug Induced Lupus

Certain medications and allergies to some medications can cause symptoms similar to systemic lupus. These disappear when the medication is discontinued. Symptoms may take six months to disappear.

Before current blood tests, acetaminophen was one such drug that, when causing an allergic reaction, produced symptoms very much like lupus. The blood test can confirm the presence of lupus or if it is drug induced lupus.

Commonality: Dehydration. Water Cures can help with this type of lupus but in a slightly different way. Water cures speeds up the process of the body flushing out the effects of the chemicals on the body. It also helps the body attain homeostasis faster. Once our body in in a state of balance, most symptoms will disappear.

Neonatal Lupus

Rarely the newborn of a mother with lupus will get neonatal lupus. This can result in rashes, anemia and or liver problems. The symptoms usually go away after a few months growth.

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.

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.
