Systemic lupus erythematosis or SLE is a fairly uncommon health condition.  It affects women about nine times as often as it affects men.  Most who are diagnosed with it are between 10 and 50 years old.  African Americans and Asians are more affected than Caucasians.  It is considered an auto-immune disease by the medical profession.  There is no known medical cure for it.




These usually include joint pain, weakness, and often a variety of other symptoms depending upon how severe it is and what parts of the body are affected.  Symptoms often come and go.  The most common symptoms include:


Fever with no other cause

General discomfort, uneasiness, or ill feeling (malaise)

Hair loss

Mouth sores

Sensitivity to sunlight

Skin rash -- a "butterfly" rash over the cheeks and bridge of the nose affects about half of people with SLE. The rash gets worse in sunlight. The rash may also be widespread.

Swollen lymph nodes


Other symptoms depend on what part of the body is affected:


Brain and nervous system:


Mild cognitive impairment

Numbness, tingling, or pain in the arms or legs

Personality change


Risk of stroke


Vision problems


Digestive tract: abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting

Heart: abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias)

Kidney: blood in the urine

Lung: coughing up blood and difficulty breathing

Skin: patchy skin color, fingers that change color when cold (Raynaud's phenomenon)




A tentative research finding is that lupus is associated with toxicity with a particular form of lead.  This is based on a limited number of cases, but appears to hold true, so far.  This may help doctors and researchers to find the exact cause and to correct the condition.




                  So far, we have had decent success in helping people with lupus using nutritional balancing science.  It appears to be very important to do the optional detoxification procedures, which are the daily use of a near infrared lamp sauna (this type of sauna only), and daily coffee enemas.  These appear to assist with the thorough detoxification and renourishing of the body.  Their success may also be due to other mechanisms of which we are not aware at this time.

                  We look forward to working with more people with this condition, as this can help us to fine-tune the programs for this debilitating health condition.
