Looking For Lupus Cures In This Modern Age Of Medicine
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Lupus is a insidious condition that affects millions worldwide. Although overall symptoms are similar from case to case, lupus has unique symptoms and triggers to each and every sufferer. The most unusual thing about lupus that separates it from most other diseases is the fact that it isn't caused by a specific pathogen like a bacteria or a virus. This makes identification of lupus and the looking for lupus cures quite different than the approaches implemented for more common diseases.

Lupus is an autoimmune condition. This means that the body is actual attacking itself. The immune system of the sufferer is overactive and confused and can attack organs, skin and even joints and soft tissues. This can be from mild annoying symptoms to life threatening situations, especially when major organs are involved. Which ever your case, lupus is debilitating even in its mildest forms and looking for lupus cures becomes an obsession.

When I first suffered the serious lupus conditions and couldn't get out of bed for almost two months I had no idea what was wrong. I had been healthy up to that point and the quickness of the attack convinced me that I must be dieing from cancer or something. My doctor immediately suspected lupus and placed me on steroid treatments. I recovered and went back to my daily activities but from that point on never took my health for granted.

The flares came and went, so did the various treatments that my doctor prescribed. At times when the lupus was inactive the side effects were the focal point of my anxiety. So began the constant cycle that is enough to drive a person nuts. As a side note, my lupus was not verified for over two years by any test although I had better than half of the "required" symptoms. Eventually I had my first positive ANA test.

At first I relied totally on my doctors judgment and treatments, no questions asked. He then retired, so I moved to another specialist recommended by him. This was a female doctor and although I appreciated this change very much, my over all health continued to gradually go down hill. More frequent flares and longer recovery times stopped me from working and limited what I could do with family and friends. I was beginning to wonder if I would every get my life back.

At the urging of my husband I began a more proactive approach to my health. I started looking into Natural Remedies for Lupus and discovered a whole additional strategy that can be implemented in concert with standard treatments to successfully treat not only lupus symptoms but also modulate the immune system in a way that is beneficial to my health.

Looking for Lupus Cures and implementing natural methods is a daily routine for me now. It truly amazes me how much that standard medicine has overlook because of the blinders of pharmaceuticals and advances in surgery technologies. It is also a trend to see more and more doctors being open to the idea of natural alternative treatments being used as "complementary."

I have discovered that your own personal research and education along with taking the the responsibility to implement what you learn is the key to permanently putting your lupus in remission.
