Lupus

Lupus is a chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune disease that affects the blood and connective tissue.   It is uncommon, complex and poorly understood condition that affects many parts of the body and causes many different symptoms ranging from mild to life-threatening. Lupus is an autoimmune condition, which means that it is caused by problems with the immune system (the body’s natural defence against illness and infection). In people with lupus, for reasons that are not clearly understood, the immune system starts to attack healthy cells, tissue and organs. As with other more common autoimmune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, it is thought that a combination of genetic and environmental factors are responsible for triggering the onset of lupus in certain people...

    Hi Linda,

    We don’t currently have information about this disease. We have passed this along to our researches and hopefully we will have some information for you in a couple of days(if there is a cure).

    Thanks

    Regarding Nathan Kennedy’s message above — did you mean to write “high doses of HCI supplementation” or HCL supplementation?? Because HCL is the prescription drug Paxil which is supposed to be dangerous and poison to our bodys. Please clarify and then qualify for me.

    My wife was diagnosed with connective tissue disorder, and a mild case of Lupus. Her disease manifested itself by eating the flesh on her shin. Got 12 cm in diameter ( as big as my hand with NO SKIN) We have been eating organic, mostly wholefoods diet for 8 yrs. Buy our meat,eggs,raw milk, from local farmer, all produce from farmer market in season for new England. What’s up with that :-(. These things shouldn’t be happening. Did have enormous amounts of stress last 5 yrs, which she is finally learning to deal with much better. Plus she had an idiot dentist remove amalgam fillings without taking special precaution. Reumatologist put her on 60mgs a day of prednesone , but Naturopath is helping her ween of & having her take mega C and A. It seems to be helping, but 9 months later wound is still 7.5 cm of no skin. Never thought this would happen to her :-( It has severly curtailed a very active lifestyle. We are 58 yrs young & not ready to sit and wait to decay. Any thoughts ?

    Thanks for the advice Shiela. I believe you are correct in saying I should do meditation &/or some relaxation exercises. I am overly nervous most of the time & my inner thinking has been telling me to relax. So I will work on this, plus be a better watch-dog on the food I eat.

    Pauleen, have you changed something about your diet? Are you getting enough rest? Meditation? I have SLE, I get the rash severly, usually when I am overdoing myself or eating all the wrong unhealthy stuff. It didn’t use to itch but now it does. In order to keep the rash away I have to do meditation and yoga daily and constantly watch what I eat.

    I was diagnosed w/ discoid lupus over 18 years ago. For the past two years it has been very active. Lesions up & down my arms, my back & chest. Recently, the rash is across the bridge of my nose. In the past the rash never itched, but the past 6 months I itch all over which is driving me crazy. My question is why is my skin itching more than it did years ago? I am wondering if I have acquired some kind of food allergy that is not in relation to the discoid lupus.
    I am not on any drugs & haven’t seen a doctor in 6 years, because I am without insurance, & truly do not have any faith that they will help me. I appreciate any info you can pass my way, & I will try some of these supplementation’s. Thanks.

    Hello I am a chiropractor who has worked with a few patients that had lupus. I have seen that raising the immune system actually seems to help people get better. I have spoken with other doctors who have noticed the same thing. There must be some kind of error in the research or perhaps the body works more efficiently and stops attacking itself when the immune system starts working. I have found HCL supplementation works very well at sometimes very high dosages built up over time. Also I know that oral tolerance works very well with lupus. Here is a research article link to ncbi.nlm.nih.gov . Oral tolerance may involve ingesting animal organs so the immune system attacks the animal organ. For example if the lupus is attacking your skin there are companies that sell animal products that are close to the human tissue so your body attacks that instead of your skin. So what happens is the body attacks the animal tissue instead of yours and allows for more healing. Just thought I would tell you. Also Echinacea should make your tounge go numb when you chew on it if it has enough immune stimulating secondary plant coumpounds. It is a quick check to see if its a good product.

    Wouldn’t echinacea be the worst possible thing for Lupus patients since it’s an immunostimulator, and Lupus patients already have an over active immune system?! That sound more like a death sentence to me.
