Lupus is an autoimmune disease of unknown origin. For some reason the body is not able to fight off bacteria/virus etc.. Colloidal Silver if taken consistently gives the immune system a boost by killing the bacteria and viruses that are invading. CS IMHO is a must for anyone with an autimmune disease. Also consider colon/liver/kidney flushes to make sure your system is cleaned out as much as possible. This heightens your body's ability to deal with disease.
