Is Borax Safe?
Ted, I just wanted to ask a couple of questions. I am a 32 yr. old wife & mother of 2 who got diagnosed with Lupus a little over a year ago. I have no organ involvement yet but deal daily with major flare-up's, facial redness& rash, joint pain & lesions that appear all over my body. I have been on Plaquenil for 8 months & have major side effects so last week I just stopped taking it. My doctor wants me to go on Prednazone & I will not. It has about killed my grandmother who has Giant Cell Arteritis (an autoimmune disease). I can't hardly function some days now & I just want to be able to raise my family & not feel 100 yrs. old.
I have started the baking soda (1/2 tsp. in half glass of water 2x's a day), Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin D3 & Magnesium. But, when I went to the pharmacy to but borax, they told me I could not injest it. I need something to help me deal with this horrible situation that won't kill me. I am willing to try it but need to know that it is ok. It's not like I really trust what the doctors tell me anyway. It's all about their bottom line, they don't care about my life.
I will write back in a week or so to update my progress or lack there of. At this point, I am so hopeful that it will work. I don't want to live my life in misery b/c of the medications I have to take. Let me know if you have any suggestions for my digestion problems and constant bowel problems. I would appreciate it.
