Lupus is one of many autoimmune diseases. The immune system is a complicated network of cells and molecules that normally works to defend the body and eliminate infections. A healthy immune system produces proteins called antibodies, and specific cells called lymphocytes, that help fight and destroy viruses, bacteria, and other foreign substances that invade the body. In lupus, the body's immune system does not work as it should and produces antibodies that attack the body's healthy cells and tissues. These antibodies, called autoantibodies, contribute to the inflammation of various parts of the body and can cause damage to organs and tissues.
Lupus can affect many parts of the body, including the joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood vessels, and brain. Lupus symptoms vary. Some of the most common symptoms of lupus include:
We know that many more women than men have lupus. Lupus is three times more common in African American women than in Caucasian women and is also more common in women of Hispanic, Asian, and Native American descent. Lupus can run in families, but the risk that a child or sibling of a patient will also have lupus is still quite low.
Lupus symptoms can be debilitating and, at present, there is no cure for the disease. Treatment has historically been limited to costly prescription drugs (and their many potentially dangerous side effects). But a new approach takes advantage of the cell-modulation properties of plant sterols (which possess potent anti-inflammatory properties) found in the all-natural supplement Natur-Leaf ®. It has been demonstrated that plant sterols and sitosterolins are potent immune modulators capable of reversing abnormalities of the immune system.
Dr. Chris Morris, Clinical Director of Transformational Health states that, "Probably the autoimmune condition responding most dramatically and consistently to my treatment with sterols and sitosterolins is systemic lupus erythmatosis." In documenting a patient's care, he says: "... She suffered severely from chronic fatigue syndrome ... daily bouts of migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, depression, and more. ...From my prescribing the sterols and sitosterolins ... she was able to take back her life. ...Currently my lupus patient is fine." Dr. Morris' clinical experience has been verified by studies recorded in medical literature and by public announcement. (See Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients-December 1999)
Lupus can have serious effects on a person's life and well being, but there are ways that allow most people with the disease to lead active and productive lives: exercise, rest, proper daily nutrition—especially as supplemented with Natur-Leaf ®, pain-relieving drugs and medication when needed. Natur-Leaf ®, with its synergistic combination of natural ingredients, yields powerful immuno-modulating and anti-inflammatory effects. It can play a strong, positive role in your management of lupus and all autoimmune diseases.
