General Lupus Information
Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s own immune system attacks the skin, blood vessels, joints and other tissues of the body. Experts believe that lupus is due to an unidentified virus that causes the body to produce antibodies that attack its own organs and tissues.

There are two types of lupus:
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus / SLE is a systemic disease with symptoms that can range from minor to extreme.
Discoid Lupus Erythematosus / DLE is generally less serious. Although it primarily affects the skin, these affects may be disfiguring.

Women make up 90% of the people with lupus. Asian women are at an increased risk of developing the disease. Both types of lupus follow a pattern of occasional flare-ups followed by periods of remission. There is no known cure for lupus.

Possible Causes of Lupus
There is no known cause for lupus, but some factors may predispose certain individuals to developing the disease, including genetic defects, hormonal factors, some medications, exposure to ultraviolet B light, chemicals and some viral infections. Childbirth, fatigue, pregnancy and stress may cause flare-ups or could be the cause of initial development of lupus. It is believed that there may be a virus that causes the development of antibodies, which then attacks good body tissues.

Possible Symptoms of Lupus
SLE symptoms tend to resemble arthritis, with pain and swelling in the joints: Other symptoms may include fever, butterfly-shaped rash across bridge of the nose, skin sores, mouth sores, abdominal pains, chest pains, blood in urine, fatigue, hair loss, loss of appetite, low grade fever, nausea, poor circulation, shortness of breath, skin ulcers, vomiting and weight loss. Serious cases may cause symptoms of amnesia, anemia, depression, excessive bleeding, headaches, mania, paralysis, paranoia, psychosis, seizures, strokes and inflammation of heart/lung membranes.

Discoid Lupus Erythematosus / DLE symptoms are more skin-related. They include butterfly rash on the face, recurring lesions, yellowish lumps, scaring from lesions and baldness from scaring.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Lupus
Eat foods high in sulfur, which supports soft tissue repair and assists in calcium absorption. It is important to eat lots of raw vegetables for fiber and non-citrus fruits, including raw pineapple, which includes enzymes important for reducing inflammation in joints. Avoid eggplant, peppers, tomatoes, and white potatoes and alfalfa sprouts, which contain solanine or canavain, which may increase inflammation. Avoid dairy products, red meat, caffeine, citrus fruits, paprika, salt, tobacco and sugar. Avoid excessive sunlight and fluorescent lighting, which may aggravate symptoms. Birth control pills may also increase the chances of flare-up.

Beneficial Dietary Supplements
Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc balance PH levels, support bones and normalize immune function.

L-Cysteine, L-Methionine and L-Lysine are important amino acids for cell protection, skin formation, white blood cell production and immune support.

Proteolytic Enzymes and Bromelain are anti-inflammatory agents that may help reduce pain.

Flax Seed Oil and Primrose Oil are essential fatty acids that help prevent arthritis and protect the cells.

Glucosamine is important for connective tissue, bones and skin.

MSM provides sulfur that may reduce inflammation and pain and support skin and bones.

Licorice Root, Pau d'Arco, Fever Few and Red Clover may alleviate some lupus symptoms. Avoid Licorice if high blood pressure is a problem.

Multivitamin and Mineral Supplements are important for maintaining a complete nutritional balance.
