Are you experiencing or at risk for lupus?

Lupus is the result of your immune system attacking healthy tissue in your body. Most of the time, lupus results from a combination of your genetics and your environment. If you are susceptible to Lupus, potential triggers can include sunlight, infections and medications. If you are at risk or have Lupus, you may experience symptoms such as fever, joint pain, fatigue, butterfly-shaped rash on the face, skin lesions, fingers or toes that turn white or blue when exposed to cold, shortness of breath, chest pain, dry eyes, headaches, confusion or memory loss.

Tip for treating Lupus:

Lupus symptoms may be worsened or experienced more frequently if ongoing inflammation is present as a result of food sensitives. One inexpensive way to test this out at home is by trying an elimination diet.

To do this:

  1. Eliminate together or one at a time food types from your diet for 15-30 days (longer is better).
  2. Re-introduce the food types one at a time at least 3 days apart and pay close attention to any symptoms which you notice. You may benefit from doing this more than once to really dial into your sensitivities.

The food types which most commonly are linked to sensitivities are as follows:

  • dairy
  • wheat
  • soy
  • corn
  • yeast
  • eggs
  • refined sugar
  • artificial food colorings
