The Holistic Cure For Lupus

and the Toxicology of the Allopathically Prescribed Medications

Lupus is a reaction to environmental, emotional, and chemical stressors. Common symptoms are fatigue, fever, joint pain, stiffness and swelling, butterfly-shaped rash on the face, skin lesions, dry eyes, headaches, memory loss, and confusion. Your body has an innate ability to regulate and heal itself. The symptoms of lupus are the body’s response to toxicity and deficiency. Our bodies are more intelligent than any doctor who tries to treat the reaction with toxic medications.

Medications Can Cause Lupus. Blood pressure medications, antibiotics, and anti-seizure medications can cause lupus. The symptoms usually disappear when the drugs are stopped, but not always. A list of the most common medications that cause medication-induced lupus is at the very end of the article.

The lupus symptoms appear when the body recognizes a pathogen, mounts a defense, and triggers an inflammatory response, hence the listed lupus symptoms. This inflammatory response is the body regulating itself due to tissue damage, and the body reacts by creating inflammation to restore the tissue; it is self-regulating. Lupus is an inflammatory condition. Some do not like to put it in the autoimmune category, but for our purpose of leading you in the direction of health and healing the symptoms, the classification of disease title is optional. You can reverse the condition by removing what causes the body’s reaction, no matter which diagnosis allopathic doctors have given you.

A definitive diagnosis for lupus cannot be determined through any test. Some functional medicine doctors even doubt the autoimmune nature of lupus, instead proposing that it is a set of reactions to environmental toxins or an autoimmune stressor. It may also display itself in similar ways to fibromyalgia, making it hard to tell them apart. To treat the condition properly, we need to find out what sets off the symptoms and address that underlying issue. Fortunately, autoimmune diseases are reversible by targeting specific elements found in the medications used for treating lupus. This can help figure out what activates inflammation responses within the body. Then, with dietary supplements, whole foods, among other components – symptom-free living can be achieved.

PLAQUENIL® HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE SULFATE, USP is often prescribed by allopathic doctors, but it can be highly toxic. Eating the right foods, supplementing as needed, and avoiding toxins is the only way to regain health, contrary to what that medication provides. Many people have abandoned this drug and healed their bodies in the process. For many others, discontinuing its use after a medical consultation has relieved symptoms significantly.

Some of the side effects of this medication cause lupus symptoms. Is the drug causing your lupus to get worse? Let’s keep that as an option.

A long-term study of hydroxychloroquine withdrawal on exacerbations in systemic lupus erythematosus. The Canadian Hydroxychloroquine Study Group.

The ability of antimalarials to moderate severe disease activity in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is plausible but undemonstrated.

Over the 42 months of study, 11 of 22 (50%) patients randomized initially to placebo, and seven of 25 (28%) patients randomized to continue treatment experienced a major flare.

A Randomized Study of the Effect of Withdrawing Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

The antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine is thought to be effective in controlling some of the manifestations of systemic lupus erythematosus, but its effectiveness has not been demonstrated conclusively.

The same randomized study says: Conclusions – Patients with quiescent systemic lupus erythematosus who are taking hydroxychloroquine are less likely to have a clinical flare-up if they are maintained on the drug. (N Engl J Med 1991; 324:150–4.)

Reversing Lupus

Decrease Toxic Exposure

Remove What Causes the Inflammatory Response

Things that cause an increase in Zoniliun that you must avoid to heal the gut Candida Overgrowth;

  • Gluten, grains, and legumes
  • Refined sugars and simple carbohydrates
  • Excessive use of antibiotics. Mercury toxicity – See our Article on Mercury.
  • Stress
  • Use of certain medications, including oral contraceptives and corticosteroids.
  • Bacterial Overgrowth
  • Gastric bypass surgery
  • Antibiotics
  • Organ system dysfunction, such as liver cirrhosis, chronic pancreatitis, or renal failure.
  • Parasite Infection

Increased Zoniliun is associated with;

  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Asthma
  • Glioma
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Things that assist in Autoimmune Disease Reversal

  • Coconut oil
  • Vitamin D
  • Omega 3
  • Do NOT Vaccinate.
  • Eat healthy, nutritious foods.
  • Do not eat sugars and bad carbohydrates.
  • Eliminates toxins – Spirulina and Chlorella assist the process.
  • Resveratrol – The top food sources include red wine, grapes, some berries, and peanuts.
  • Exercise
  • Eat only pesticide and hormone-free non-GMO organic foods and beverages.
  • Avoid pharmaceuticals.
  • Cook in the non-toxic cookware.
  • Remove toxins from your home: cleaners, deodorants, shampoos, Mercury, etc.
  • Glutathione – Free radical fighter.

This all helps to heal your leaky gut syndrome, your ultimate goal.

  1. Decrease toxic exposure to cure autoimmune diseases.
  2. Remove what causes the inflammatory response.
  3. Endocrine disruptors trigger the inflammatory response, which produces reactions that are autoimmune disease symptoms. Groups of these symptoms are diagnosed as lupus or fibromyalgia, etc., by allopathic doctors. When we remove the triggers that cause the response, the symptoms disappear, curing the disease.
  4. Remove all triggers to reduce the inflammatory response symptoms.

Endocrine Disruptors Trigger the Inflammatory Response, which produces reactions that are symptoms. Groups of these symptoms are diagnosed as lupus or fibromyalgia by allopathic doctors. When we remove the triggers, the symptoms are reversed.

Remove all triggers to reduce the inflammatory response symptoms.

Chemical Triggers:

Medications, sugar, aspartame, vaccines, over-the-counter drugs, gluten, pesticides, GMOs, PCBs in plastics, and toxic chemicals in household and personal care products are some of the primary triggers of the inflammation response.

Reduce your exposure to;

Vaccines cause autoimmune diseases. (Read our vaccine pages to see a plethora of documented science that proves this).

Dioxins are found in meat, fish, milk, eggs, and butter. Switch to organic products to avoid dioxins.

Phthalates are found in toys, fragrances, personal care products, and plastic wrap.

Perchlorates (a component of rocket fuel) No, we are not saying don’t drink rocket fuel. We are just describing this pesticide that is found in produce. It causes tissue damage, hence the inflammatory response. It also depletes iodine, and most are already deficient in it.

Mercury is found in fish and vaccinations. Yes, mercury is still in many vaccines and found in products illegally sold in the United States. Please take a look at our article on Mercury and its toxicity. We are told to limit our exposure to Mercury. We do not believe a little bit of poison is a good thing. Mercury is more common than most realize.

Glycol ethers are found in lacquers, paints, varnishes, and perfumes. It is an ingredient in cleaning products, foods, cosmetics, and antifreeze. Ethylene glycol ethers have been shown to damage red blood cells and bone marrow. This causes anemia. This can result in weakness, tiredness, and shortness of breath. (All lupus symptoms)

Atrazine is found in herbicides. It is one of the most widely used in the U.S., applied to sugar cane, corn, pineapple, evergreens, and lawns along highways, and it is used to control weeds. It is also shown to cause frogs to become both male and female.

“By understanding the biological effects of aberrant gut microbiome composition, it is possible to contemplate current therapeutic options and their efficacy.” – Dr. Terry Wahls.

The Whals Protocol helps rebuild your microbiome—a key to curing, controlling, or reversing all diseases. Although she believes in eating me. Our research shows it is not only a cancer causer buy an inflammatory, filled with bovine growth hormones and antibiotics.
