World Lupus Day (WLD) is sponsored by
the World Lupus Federation, a coalition
of lupus patient organizations from
around the world.WLD serves to rally
lupus organizations and people a ected
by the disease around the world for a common purpose of
bringing greater attention and resources
to end the su ering and improve the
quality of life for people a ected by
lupus. Every day, more than 5 million
people worldwide struggle with the
debilitating health consequences of
lupus.
Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease
that can damage any part of the body
(skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Chronic
means that the signs and symptoms tend to
last longer than six weeks and often for many
years.
Autoimmune means your immune system
cannot tell the di erence between these
foreign invaders and your body’s healthy
tissues (“auto” means “self”) and creates
autoantibodies that attack and destroy
healthy tissue. These autoantibodies cause
inflammation, pain, and damage in various
parts of the body.
Here at Valiant Clinic, we aim to manage
Lupus with a holistic approach looking after
both the physical and mental health of the
patient professionally in a relaxing
environment. What is always important and necessary, is the
cooperation between the patient and the doctor.
