Did you know that 1.5 million Americans have been diagnosed with Lupus? Not only that, but there are 16,000 new cases diagnosed each year! When more than 5 million individuals struggling with Lupus worldwide, you would think more people would know about it. However, with Lupus being ranked as one of the top 20 leading causes of death in females ages 5 to 64, it is something that needs to be discussed.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease that comes with a variety of health issues. Some of the most common symptoms are fatigue, fever, joint pain, shortness of breath, chest pain, dry eyes, headaches, memory loss, white or blue fingers when cold, and the most well-known, a butterfly face rash. However, it also affects the lungs, skin, kidneys, blood cells, joints, brain, and heart in a number of ways. Unfortunately, because so many of the signs and symptoms are extremely common for numerous health issues, it makes diagnosing Lupus extremely difficult to diagnose.
Given that these signs and symptoms, when left untreated, start to break down our kidneys, liver, lungs, and blood cells, and more early diagnosis is critical to prevent any damage. Lupus is an autoimmune disease that affects women more than men. This is largely due to the fact that estrogen increases our body’s immune response. As women naturally cycle and produce their own estrogen, their levels are already higher than men. However, with all the estrogen-based chemicals we are now exposed to the majority of us are experiencing estrogen dominance within our bodies. This has resulted in an increase in all autoimmune diseases.
Along with the high estrogen exposure, other risk factors can increase the odds of developing Lupus. Some of the most common contributing factors are medications such as blood pressure medication and antibiotics. Frequent infections can also put individuals at a higher risk of developing Lupus. Unfortunately, individuals dealing with multiple infections, including colds and flu, are much more likely to take antibiotics which can do even more damage to your body.
So what can we do to leave and prevent developing Lupus? The best part is that doing one thing can check off all the boxes for preventing and supporting your overall health! Detoxing regularly helps your body purge any excess chemicals or hormones that have accumulated in your body. The best way to detox is by using primarily foods to help your body transition from season to season. One of the downsides to living in the United States is that we have access to food year-round. While it is nice to be able to get what you want when you want it. Forcing foods to grow outside of their normal season depleted them of nutrients. It also costs a lot more to produce.
Have you ever noticed how Europeans have much lower obesity and chronic illness rate? This is largely due to the fact that seasonal foods like fruits and vegetables are marginally higher than processed foods. These processed foods are slowly killing us and they are filling our bodies with chemicals designed to look like foods that further break down our bodies until we can no longer keep up the fight. The only thing we can do is eliminate as many toxins as possible from our bodies while preventing additional toxins from coming into our systems. We can do this by detoxing every other month and eating seasonal foods that are whole foods, meaning not processed. Detoxing through nutrition is by far the best way to assist our bodies and support our health with ease. Our bodies are designed to detox themselves, however, when they become overtaxed or overworked, they need help to do so.
