Holistic Therapy: Lupus (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus)

What is Lupus?

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), more commonly known simply as lupus, is an autoimmune disorder disproportionately affecting women (10 times more often than men) and causing various symptoms and in varying degrees for each person. This is a chronic condition with at present no known cure, but holistic treatment may significantly reduce your symptoms and allow you to live a normal life. Lupus is not the same as arthritis, but if you think you have SLE you should consult with a rheumatologist for a definitive diagnosis and medical advice.

SLE is primarily an inflammatory condition, and lupus symptoms include painful inflammation of the joints as well as of the skin, nervous system, and internal organs. Rashes, fever, and fatigue are also possible. These symptoms will most likely set in during one's 20's or 30's and they may wax and wane in severity, sometimes going into complete remission for some time.
