Lupus – Break Through To Healing

New research opens the door to healing Lupus…hundreds of people who have systematically and effectively reversed their condition.

You won’t hear or read about this anywhere else, because it isn’t in the interest of pharmaceutical companies or medical professionals to inform you. “Why?” You might ask.

• If everybody knew about holistic healing and transformation, pharmaceutical companies could not sell their life-long maintenance drugs and multiple doctor appointments.

• Pharmaceutical companies and medical professionals would lose billions of dollars in profits. This is why you will only hear about this through word-of-mouth, or in articles like this.

• It is terrifying for pharmaceutical companies to realize that natural healing/transformation, without the use of pharmaceuticals, is helping people eliminate disease and all other body malfunctions completely.

“Spring is the perfect time to commit to a healthier lifestyle. For anyone with a chronic illness, pushing the body and mind not only helps improve health, but it also boosts overall mood and energy.” (Washington, DC – Lupus Foundation of America)

The spring issue of Lupus Now magazine, published by the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA), features a cover story highlighting several simple but critical steps people with lupus and other chronic conditions can take. These include the basics of any health routine, such as moving your body and enriching your spirit. According to Lupus Now Magazine, an estimated 1.5 million Americans have a form of lupus. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes inflammation and tissue damage to various parts of the body, including the skin, joints, blood, and blood vessels, as well as major organs such as the brain, kidneys, heart, and lungs.

The Lupus Foundation of America recommends the following:

• “Aim for activities that strengthen without aggravating inflamed joints and muscles, such as walking, swimming, bicycling, or a variety of stretching exercises,” says Daniel J. Wallace, M.D., a rheumatologist and clinical professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in Los Angeles.

• Connect with friends and giving others inspiration as ways to rejuvenate yourself and feel better. “Chronic illness makes people feel isolated, so if they can come together and have that sense of belonging, that’s very healing,” says Sharon Mack, co-chair of the Lupus Foundation of America’s Education Committee. Local support groups are a great place to meet people who understand how you feel and what you’re going through.

• Writing or participating in any kind of artistic activity are other great ways to express yourself and feel productive. Simple patio gardening can also get your creative juices flowing and at the same time get you outdoors in the fresh air. Following these easy steps, which are discussed in more detail in the Spring 2006 issue of Lupus Now, can help patients feel revitalized.

• “By improving your physical functioning and mental outlook, you help yourself, you help your family, and you help your physician as well because a patient who tries is easier to work with,” says Evelyn Hess, M.D., M.A.C.P., M.A.C.R., a rheumatologist and immunologist at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

While these tips are excellent ways to cope-healing remains elusive because the strategy is focused on coping and does not reach the core issue that creates the symptom called Lupus.

To fully heal any physical malfunction the core cause for the disease needs to be addressed. The core cause(s) reside in the mind, body, and spirit.

With Traditional Medicine, Lupus can never be cured (healed). Traditional Medicine “fights” Lupus through drugs that mask the symptoms of the disease, but never deals with the root cause of the body malfunction.

Doctors acknowledge they have no idea ‘What’ causes Lupus, they don’t know how to cure (heal)it-but prescriptions are dispensed with an authoritarian attitude, “This will help you feel ‘better.'”

Does that make sense to you? Why would you take drugs if doctors don’t know what Lupus is, what caused it, or how to cure (heal) it? Yet, people do just that for every physical malfunction.

These physical malfunctions are:

• Cancer-all varieties

• Multiple Sclerosis

• Diabetes

• High Cholesterol

• Cardio-Vascular diseases

• Lupus

• High blood pressure

• Acid Reflux

• Ulcers

• Tumors

• Chronic Fatigue

• Fibromyalgia

• and the list goes on.

In the West, we have a high incidence of these diseases that practically don’t exist in “undeveloped” parts of the world. This has been known for a long time, and for years, scientists didn’t have an answer.

Western Scientists have recently acknowledged what Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has known for centuries that Lupus and all body malfunctions can be reversed with natural means.

They have acknowledged that it is our modern lifestyle that is actively causing these diseases-and that-Western Medicine’s theory and doctrines fail to recognize that diseases are not separate from the person. In fact, every disease can be more accurately called an expression of the patient’s lifestyle, beliefs, and energies. Cancer is not a tumor, for example, it is a systemic disorder that can only truly be healed by helping to support the body, not by attacking it with chemical bombs or knives. The tumor is merely one physical expression of the systemic disorder, and simply removing the tumor does nothing to cure the disease. The body is designed to heal itself-given it has the proper care-nutrition, herbal supplements, spiritual and emotional well-being.

Using a combination of a healthy mind (psyche), body, spirit (spiritual) lifestyle you can prevent or heal any and all body malfunctions. After 25 years working with hundreds of people with everybody malfunction imaginable, I came to know no matter how dire their circumstance, if the person is willing to do the work-mind, body, spirit-anything can be healed. The word, ‘incurable,’ only means the condition cannot be cured by ‘outer’ methods and that the person must GO WITHIN to effect the healing.

The body is designed to heal itself provided it has the proper support to do its job. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is based on a concept of balanced qi (pronounced “chee”), or vital energy, that is believed to flow throughout the body. Qi is proposed to regulate a person’s spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance and to be influenced by the opposing forces of yin (negative energy) and yang (positive energy). The disease is proposed to result from the flow of qi being disrupted and yin and yang becoming imbalanced. Among the components of TCM are herbal and nutritional therapy, restorative physical exercises, meditation, acupuncture, and remedial massage.

Holistic, Metaphysical, Energy or Mind, Body, Spirit healing has existed since the beginning of time amid religious beliefs and practices, along with the mystery, superstition, fear, and misunderstanding. Holistic Healing is now becoming recognized regardless of what anyone chooses to believe or think. Ask almost anyone about their spiritual well-being and they will probably tell you, “Yeah, I am a spiritual person, I go to church frequently.” Therein, the confusion arises out of the association of healing with religion. The majority of people, including religious leaders, do not understand the difference.

Definition: “HEAL”

1. To restore to health or soundness,

2. To set right, repair,

3. To restore a person to spiritual wholeness,

4. To become whole and sound, to return to health.

Definition: “SPIRIT”

1. The vital principle or animating force within living beings, Incorporeal consciousness. There are about twelve more elaborations mostly to do with various religious implications.

Definition: “RELIGION”

1. Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor of the universe,

2. A set of beliefs, values, and practices based on the teachings of religious doctrine.

Thus, based on Western Medicine’s common interpretations of how things ‘ARE’, many paradoxes are created. The resultant effect is confusion and un-wellness. The Truth, as Carl Jung and others have carefully worded in their writing, is this: Every Thing in the universe is Energy and Consciousness. How anyone thinks or feels about that Fact cannot change it.

The purpose of All religions is the recognition that humans have a part of themselves that is not physical and there is a need to explore and experience this aspect of themselves. Part of the intent is to discover one’s purpose and to live in the best way possible. Another part of that goal also includes the attainment of Truth and Spiritual Wellness. However, the result of religious teachings with regard to our Spiritual health has been an abysmal failure. If the most important aspect of our being is our Spiritual self, and it has been neglected, it is a miracle we have existed this long.

Your diet is one of the major influences on your Lupus symptoms. How can diet be a big impact on one’s body?

A metaphor for what’s happening inside your body is from a scientific view. Picture your body as a car, that was designed to function on all-natural, organic, fuel. The car is a living, breathing machine, not unlike the human body. For 12 million years, this car has been using fuel such as:

• Water

• Seeds

• Nuts

• Herbs

• Roots

• Fruits

• Vegetables

• Grains

That’s the fuel the metaphorical car thrived on. More significantly, that’s the kind of stuff it was built on, natural raw materials. Then, precipitously, after 12,000,000 years-that car switches over to, for the last 100 years, a new modern mixture of:

• Sugar

• Wheat-highly acidic hybrid grass

• Chocolate

• Soft-drinks

• Fats & oils

• Cigarettes

• Alcohol

• Pharmaceutical drugs

• Chemicals, pesticides, and preservatives

That is like putting diesel fuel into the tank of a car that functions on gasoline and expects it to function properly. What do you think would happen to the mechanics of the car? That’s right: It breaks down!

If you keep pouring in fuels that your body can’t process properly-eventually the mechanics start experiencing serious difficulties.

Some people develop tumors. Other people have Cholesterol levels that are through the roof. For you, your diet and lifestyle are causing the condition commonly known as Lupus.

This condition is simply a ‘symptom’ of a very fundamental and dangerous imbalance within your body, and Lupus is simply the initial way it is manifesting itself in your body. Lupus is truly the least of your worries.

If you really think about that-it means that-Lupus is not a Disease, But A Symptom of Your True Disease Inside Your Body: The Root Cause.

In reality, Lupus is not the ‘disease.’ It is a “symptom” – an outward “signal” – of a damaged inner terrain that simply is too polluted, toxic, and acidic! A compromised, toxic, acidic inner terrain is a breeding ground for all kinds of “malfunctions” to proliferate.

These pollutants, toxic and acidic wastes collect in all parts of the body and start tearing the body’s processes down. That’s what scientists have found. Lupus doesn’t just happen, it is the direct result of a breakdown inside your body.

When millions of people around the world start experiencing the same health problems, something is seriously wrong. Something is unbalanced. And it’s never an “accident.”

What scientists have now discovered is… that the “Root Cause” of Lupus is the modern lifestyle, causing your body to become diseased by poor nutrition. Because our body is a very delicately balanced organism, whatever you ingest can radically destroy that delicate balance.

Therefore, any physical malfunction is merely a warning sign of a breakdown in your body due to your lifestyle means-this is when you develop “Lupus” And if you don’t stop the attacks on your body, you develop even more serious conditions and eventually truly life-threatening health problems.

The radical change in diet and lifestyle in the last 100 years has actually transformed your body into a toxic wasteland. A leading scientist, Dr. Robert O. Young states, “There is only One Sickness and One Disease, and this one ‘sickness’ is the over-acidification of the body due primarily to an inverted way of living, thinking, and eating… there can, therefore, be only one remedy and treatment, and that is to alkalize the body and break the cycle of imbalance, thus allowing us to experience the energy, vitality and true health we’re all meant to have.” Once these acids stop overflowing your body, your body gets a rest from constantly working to absorb and neutralize them. When you “cleanse” the body from the overflow of acids, it starts to heal and rebuild itself. It starts to recover, slowly but surely.

Once you focus on the ‘Root Cause’ of your Lupus-you instantly start seeing Lupus from a different perspective-instead of “Medication” and “treating the symptoms,” you start thinking about “Health” and “Healing” the cause.

The simple and unacknowledged truth about Lupus–and all other modern diseases -is that it’s more important to attend to what you put inside your mind, body, and spirit than to have to deal with the symptoms that drugs can fight from the outside.

The solution to all of this is to get back into your natural state of vibrant health… by “cleansing” yourself from the inside, physically, mentally, and spiritually allowing your body to rest and heal itself by stopping once and for all the incessant attacks on your inner terrain.

For every disease, your immune system needs to ward off; it immediately starts fighting it. Your body can restore every wound, diseased organ, or damaged cell that comes to its way-but it cannot do that if you keep polluting it with toxic fuel, toxic thinking, and toxic lifestyle.
