Just me, but if a cure hasn't been found for all practical purposes it doesn't exist, therefore I don't consider it a cure.
Lupus symptoms come and (hopefully) Lupus symptoms go, but you still have Lupus. Taking care of basic needs is important to keeping Lupus in hand -- healthy food, deep restorative sleep, moderate exercise, and keeping life as stress-free as possible.
From over 10 years of this illness, reading plenty of in-depth research and talking to hundred's of people -- if it were simple, like the alternator analogy, we would have more results!! The body is a complicated system, and Lupus is one of the more complicated diseases. We don't even know what causes it yet, and that is the very simple basic start toward finding a cure. I mean, we *do* know plenty of causes of cancer, but nope, no cure.
In conclusion, JstJohny & SickOfSulphites, please agree to disagree. Our common purpose here is to support those with Lupus! Thanks.
