Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease which can cause pain and inflammation, among other symptoms. Lupus is an autoimmune disease, meaning that your immune system—which generally fights invaders and infections—mistakenly attacks its own healthy tissue and organs instead. Pain can occur anywhere in the body, including skin, joints, and even internal organs.
WHO’S AT RISK?
Anyone can develop lupus, but statistically you are more likely to develop it if you fall into one or more of these populations:
- Women 15-44
- African American, Asian American, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, Native American
- People with a family history of autoimmune disease.
SYMPTOMS OF LUPUS
- Painful, inflamed joints
- Skin rash, notably a butterfly-shaped rash across the face
- Painful or difficult breathing
WHAT CAUSES LUPUS
- Imbalanced Microbiome
- Environmental Triggers
- Genetic Predisposition
Although many will claim that there is no cure for lupus, or that only symptoms can be managed, our innovative microbiome-centered approach has shown to offer patients significant improvement, and in some cases a complete reversal of the illness. All autoimmune diseases have their root cause in an imbalanced microbiome; when we restore the microbiome, we are often able to reverse autoimmune disease. Some of our treatment methods include:
- Restoration of the microbiome
- Natural anti-inflammatory compounds
- Targeted probiotics
- Potent IV nutrient therapy
- Homeopathic immunomodulators
Naltrexon, a medication which modulates the immune system and, in conjunction with certain natural compounds, helps to reverse autoimmunity.
