Lupus is an autoimmune disease that can affect a wide range of organs and body systems. There is no cure for the disease, but treatments do exist that help ease the symptoms. The disease is much more common in women than in men. At Flow Natural Health Care in Milwaukie, Oregon, we use our extensive knowledge of modern medicine and natural healing to help you manage the symptoms of your lupus. We will set you up for better long-term health rather than simply treating the symptoms with prescription drugs.
Every individual has a unique body chemistry and immune system makeup, which means that every case of lupus is different. Most people with the disease have mild symptoms most of the time, and experience flare ups of worsening symptoms occasionally. Some common symptoms of lupus include exhaustion, fever, aching joints, butterfly-like rash on the face, skin irritation, chest pain, headaches, dry eyes and memory loss. The symptoms a person experiences depends entirely on which part of the body is being affected by lupus. The disease is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors, but the cause of most cases of lupus is unknown. However, there are tons of different medications, treatments and lifestyle changes that exist which can help keep lupus flares under control.
