  2 cases with lupus erythematosus nephritis were given foot reflexology. The first patient was free of symptoms and lost 5 kg of weight after 20 days and her urine test showed only small amounts of protein. The second patient showed a reduction in her leg edema and an increase in her urinary excretion after 3 sessions. After 3 months of treatment, the protein in her urine was reduced and she was free of symptoms.


  Foot reflexology was found to be effective for the relief of the symptoms associated with lupus erythematosus nephritis (SLE)
