Lupus erythematosus is a connective tissue disorder characterized by a chronic inflammatory process that occurs as a result of the body’s immune system attacking its own tissues and organs. Inflammation caused by lupus can affect many different body systems including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, heart and lungs. Lupus occurs more frequently in women than in men, although the reasons for this are unknown.

Autoimmunity is the failure of an organism to recognize its own constituent parts as self which allows an immune response against its own cells and tissues. Any disease that results from such an aberrant immune response is termed an autoimmune disease.

Various offending factors may weaken the immune system and potentially induce an autoimmune response. This pathological autoimmune response in turn may trigger the development of lupus.

We comprehensively test the patient for hidden gluten intolerance, various food allergies, dysbacteriosis, vitamin and nutritional deficiencies, adrenal suppression and other pathological conditions.

If present, these maladies constantly drain and deteriorate immune system making the vicious cycle of inflammation and pain to repeat itself again and again.

The first and main task of the practitioner is to precisely determine the immune system offenders.

The next step is to eliminate them.

Consequently, it is to support immune system and suppress inflammation with combination of natural remedies.

At the same time, we focus on correcting the secondary functional changes associated with or resulting from disease, such as suppressed adrenal function.
