7 Things I Learned about Lupus

These are things I have researched and have solid evidence on, ask me and I will tell you the books to read from acclaimed medical doctors and other doctors that these facts are true.

1) Lupus and Celiac Disease (gluten intolerance) many times go hand in hand

2) Other food allergies to dairy and eggs etc (many times from the leaky gut caused by undiagnosed gluten intolerance) also go hand in hand with Lupus

3) There are holistic and natural treatments to lessen you Lupus symptoms or maybe even to reverse Lupus altogether (pharmaceuticals are not the only way to go, they only suppress Lupus symptoms they do not cure Lupus)

4) Nutritional deficiencies (many times from leaky gut and the inability of the intestines to absorb nutrients properly) can contribute to Lupus symptoms

5) 75%- 80% of your immune system is in your gut/digestive system, if your digestive system is "off" so is your immune system

6) Toxin overload (heavy metals, pesticides etc.) can add to Lupus symptoms

7) Nutrition and what is eaten ABSOLUTELY matters and a change in diet can lessen Lupus symptoms.(especially if you avoid what you, personally, are allergic/intolerant to)
