Lupus, Causes and Cures - Upper Cervical Health Care Los Angeles -Lupus Doctor Los Angeles
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that plagues millions. The typical lupus patient goes from doctor to doctor looking for help but usually is confined to popping pills that do little more than quell some of Lupus’s symptoms.
Lupus symptoms vary widely, and they come and go. The times when symptoms get worse are called relapses, or flares. The times when symptoms are under control are called remissions. In the coming paragraphs, we will talk about natural solutions with our lupus doctor in Los Angeles.
Common symptoms of lupus: The most common symptoms of lupus are:
- Joint pain and swelling
- A butterfly-shaped rash across the nose and cheeks
- Hair loss
- Ulcers in the nose and mouth
- Edema (water retention) in the hands, feet, and face
- Photosensitivity (sensitivity to light, especially sunlight)
- Raynaud’s Disease (extremities turning white or blue when exposed to the cold)
How is lupus diagnosed?
Lupus is not easily diagnosed because it can mimic so many other illnesses. Generally, a doctor will review your medical history and your family history, and look for symptoms of systemic inflammation.
Because lupus can involve the internal and external organs, a doctor relies on observation as well as testing in order to diagnose lupus. Because of Lupus’s stealthiness, its diagnoses can be difficult and the patient can go years before getting a diagnosis
Treating Symptoms? Or Encouraging healing?
You be the judge: Current medical treatment does not help the body heal from lupus but rather treats its effects. Our goal in this article is to give you practical tips on how you can help your body heal from the devastating effects of this autoimmune disease. Leaky Gut Syndrome: Current research suggests that many autoimmune diseases are triggered by a “leaky gut”.
This bowel inflammatory condition results from, the overuse of antibiotics, NSAIDS, steroid use and other man-made chemicals that have a deleterious effect on the gut lining Leaky Gut: Can This Be Destroying Your Health?
Once the gut lining is irritated the tight junctions(areas that absorb nutrients into the bloodstream) become more porous accepting proteins into the bloodstream that otherwise would not enter.
This causes the alarm to the immune system and over time increases sensitivities in the form of allergies, food intolerances, and immune system breakdown. Leaky gut is one of the underlying body imbalances that must be healed in order to get well from an autoimmune disease such as Lupus.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care
Upper Cervical Care is a little known discipline that has been helping chronic disease suffers to heal naturally.
Right here in Los Angles Upper Cervical Health Care has been helping people recover from health problems that have their roots in nervous system irritation and dysfunction. The upper cervical spine is vulnerable to injury because of the fact that the head weighs 10-12 lbs and rests on the top bone in the neck called the atlas(weighing 2 ounces.)
Many people who have chronic health problems had a prior neck injury that predisposes the body to ill-health due to nervous system interference. Anyone who is ill should have their upper cervical spine examined by a qualified Upper Cervical Doctor.
Oftentimes recovering from chronic health problems requires a multi-pronged approach. This includes a healthy diet, treating leaky gut syndrome, and correcting upper neck misalignments. All of these factors when addressed help the body function better so that it can heal and repair. Health is something that requires work.
Health does not come in a bottle but is the result of doing things that address the underlying cause of the condition. At Upper Cervical Health Care in Los Angeles, our Doctors are trained to help you recover your health by helping partnering with you and coming up with real solutions.
