An Alternative Treatment For Lupus? - Avoiding Misconceptions And Stereotypes
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When looking into alternative Treatment For Lupus one needs to realize the broad scope this covers. It is not just about taking a few herbs or eating some type of super food. It is a complete strategy of taking care of the body. This approach is rooted in assisting the body to heal itself as it was designed too. If given half a chance your body will overcome this painful and debilitating condition.

As an autoimmune condition, lupus is really your body attacking itself. It is overactive and confused as to what is good and what is bad at the cellular level. For different people this means different things. In my case lupus attacks the soft tissues in my body so during flares I have pain and swelling in my hands , joints and other places. At times even heart attack like chest pain. Your lupus is no doubt different and may even be more severe.

Anything you can do to alleviate the systems and even send your lupus into remission that is not  using prescription drugs or surgery is what "alternative lupus treatment" is.  This could also be referred to as "natural" because they are based on things that your body naturally needs or responds too. Because of this, if used correctly there are minimal or even zero nasty side effects.

A common misconception, one that is slowly being left behind, is that standard medicine and alternative treatment for lupus are at odds. You have to choose one or the other. Nothing could be farther from the truth. As a lupus patient you must be under doctors care, this is critical. But you can also use alternate or natural lupus treatments in conjunction to your doctor's recommended treatment. This approach means that you are using the alternative treatment as a "complementary" treatment.

This works very  well and is what I recommend. Be completely open with your doctor laying all your wishes and concerns on the table to get his or her full cooperation. Most doctors will welcome your being involved. Many of their patients are not. If your doctor is unwilling to cooperate you can look for one who will. Many doctors themselves now incorporate alternative treatments for lupus with standard treatment

Lupus has many triggers or things that activate the flares. I have discovered that although most lupus patients are aware of this they are not fully informed as to the details of their personal triggers. For example the sun or sunlight can trigger a flare. This is pretty common in most lupus patients. So most avoid direct sunlight. But this is not an accurate understanding of the issue and so their flares are not reduced.

Lupus flares are triggered by UVA and UVB light. Sunlight contains both. But only one is blocked by clouds or overcast, leaving the other unaffected. This means you can get exposure without direct sunlight. With that correct knowledge you can implement an alternative treatment for lupus and only wear sunscreen that protects against both.

When it comes to an effective Treatment For Lupus, natural alternative treatments should be included in your options. You shouldn't ignore this, alternative remedies are successful. Learn the natural methods used by a previous victim of lupus to rid herself from this painful condition. For more detailed information Visit My Website.

Thank you for this information. I know someone with lupus and was interested in what you had to share. I really like the idea of combining treatments. I think natural therapies are awesome and also give people control over their health. It's very empowering to take some control when an illness may otherwise leave you feeling helpless or at the mercy of a doctors opinion.
