The Alkaline Method © – A Natural Treatment For Lupus
If you’ve read Dr Connie’s story about how she overcame her Lupus then you’ll be aware that the key to getting her life back was to go beyond traditional medical advice.
Despite her doctors best efforts, they just couldn’t solve the problem because they weren’t working with all of the information.
Natural treatment for Lupus, or any other health issue are frowned upon by the medical establishment.
Despite that, they’ve been proven to be effective in treating many conditions.
They work because they seek to understand the ROOT CAUSE of the condition, rather than just treat the symptoms.
Through years of painstaking research and trial and error, Dr Connie was able to identify a natural treatment for Lupus which significantly improved her condition.
By adopting these practices, Dr Connie also improved her ability to lead a normal life again.
This process has now been shared with hundreds of patients at the Alkaline Wellness Clinic that Dr Connie operates from in Georgia.
The key components of this process, known as “The Alkaline Method” are:
- Alkaline Detox Diet
Refrain from gluten, legumes, and grains as they can be inflammatory.
These foods contain proteins known as lectins, which act as a natural pesticide for crops and can wreak havoc on the lining of your gut.
Eliminate dairy and ALL processed foods from your diet.
Avoid fruits as they can cause a spike in blood sugar which can also cause inflammation.
- Gut Health
It’s important to build our defense in your gut again to prevent further toxic burden.
By supplementing foods and nutraceuticals that supply your gut with good defense (probiotics, prebiotic foods, and immunoglobulins), your body can establish balance and harmony again.
That leads to a tolerant immune system that aims to defend you from toxins only and STOP attacking YOU.
- Brain Health
Manage stress by cultivating a mindful practice of meditation and living daily.
Practice being “present” in YOUR body and get out of your HEAD.
Living with Lupus can impact your nervous system.
You often feel the heavy “foggy brain”, lack of focus, motivation, leading to depression and potentially anxiety.
It’s important to note that the neurotransmitter of your brain is also modulated by your diet and gut.
With Lupus, however, we have a compromise to our gut (leaky gut) and immune system which resulted in inflammation.
Inflammation causes our nervous system, which is part of your brain, to be less efficient.
Your brain takes up lots of energy to run, you know the feeling when you’re quick to think, remember names, and able to focus?
That’s a great feeling, but when burdened with inflammation from Lupus, our body can’t supply the necessary energy your brain needs.
This is why we have foggy brain, it takes a while for your to remember things, etc.
Meditation allows for rest from our incessant negative dialogue and thoughts that can cause negative feelings.
Also growing body of research proves that it improves our body function all around when we quiet our minds.
And YES, you have the power over your body and thoughts at your finger tips.
This practice is not inherent in us, it needs to be cultivated but is a key part of any natural treatment for Lupus.
- Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal Health
Lupus can cause so much pain and stiffness in your joints, muscles, and nerves. All the more important to move.
Gentle Yin Yoga, a 15 minute walk, Pilates, and/or Tai Chi are all great ways to keep the toxins to flush because this enables the muscles pump the toxins away.
When we sit still because of pain, the inflammatory chemicals in our bodies sit stagnant causing more inflammation within.
Instead we want to move so that we can get the body to be efficient and help our liver, kidneys, and gut to flush and move toxins out.
Plus gentle exercises mentioned will allow for strength, flexibility, and stability to look and feel your best!
- Lupus Supplements and Natural Herbs
Because of the leaky gut, which not only lets the toxins in, but it also limits the amount of nutrients to properly be absorbed into our bodies.
For this reason, it’s important to support the immune system with supplements such as vitamin D, omega-3 fish oils, curcumin, multivitamins, probiotics and glutathione.
The stated supplements are powerful immune modulators, meaning that they can help support your immune system.
Vitamin D has been shown to help regulate the immune system.
Omega 3 fish oils and Curcumin help to reduce inflammation, and Probiotics allow for increased defense against pathogens in the entire body.
Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant in the body which can help reduce inflammation and improve detoxification.
Lastly, CoQ10 allows for more energy efficiency allowing you to have more energy to live your life.
