Lupus with Nephritis 2

Posted by Anonymous on 05/10/2008

I have a child who was diagnosed with Lupus with Nephritis 2 and half years ago. My child still showing a great degree of inflammation after 13 cytoxin & prednisone tx as well as daily predinose. She basically is spilling about 2+ protein & 1+ blood (FYI....I am Spanish married to an American, in my husband side of the family (mother side) his grandmother had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis, His mother had psoriasis & joint pain, My husband has psoriasis & my son vitiligo...all autoimmune disorders. My son about three years ago started body building, he was taking protein supplements, No2, etc... and he started to regrow pigment). Please let me know what you think and if you could help me! Thank you.

In a condition of a Lupus with Nephritis, the common approach is to take care of the kidneys first. Usually the best remedy tor reduce some kidney problems is CoQ10 but the dose they use in commercial arena is usually too low. I find that for an adult dose it requires about 5000 mg per day, so in a person with at 1/10 the weight of a 100 pound human adult may require just only 500 mg, which these softgels may be squeezed and put in teaspoon for convenience.

Most inflammations are often reduced with just baking soda, and a pinch of potassium bicarbonate, so in a mild adult dose of 1/2 teaspoon taking three times day day in 1/2 glass dose of water, the dose is again reduced accordingly on the basis of weight. This will usually reduce most of the condition. Magnesium citrate ( or magnesium chloride and magnesium gluconate as substitutes) are very helpful in reducing the inflammation also.

Interestingly, arthritis might remotely NOT run in the family, but dietary habits lacking in certain nutrients can give way to rheumatoid arthritis. While there is no cure for that, I found magnesium supplements to be one that is most helpful against such a pain, especially if I'm talking about the pain between the joints, where the source is the ligaments. To some extent bacteria may be introduced into the body usually frequent brushin of non fluoridated toothpaste, especially in the far back of the teeth is quite often the cause for excessive pathogens that gets into the bloodstream, especially if intensive brushing of the teeth is not done before sleep.

There are actually many theories as to the cause of rheumatoid arthritis, but most Mexican diets in my opinion are lacking in certain B complex, such as niacinamide, and magnesium. Usually an adult dose is vitamin B complex, in form of B50, taken twice a day, which is a 50 mg dose for most of the vitamin Bs, and a magnesium, which is often 500 mg of an adult dose. For a child of 10-12 for example their dose is 250 mg, so a child of 5 may be 100 mg still.

A psioraisis, eczema and allergy and internal inflammation of the organs in my opinion are the same in which certain foods may trigger such as condition. Assuming it is a Mexican diets, so peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, diet coke, sugar free products, milk, cheese, peppermint toothpase, all fruits, sugar, glucose for example are often the trigger. A newer alkalizing remedy can be effective against these condition, but much of the problems is people simply can't get the ingredients I need. Therefore I will have to settle for 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate (or potassium bicarbonate) as twice or three times a day in 1/2 glass of water as a way to slowly reduced the condition. Personally I used other more effective one, but this is something that is easier to find, so some cannot even find potassium, so if that can't be found than baking soda alone will have to do.

A skin condition can easily be reduced of eczema, only superficially by applying the skin with milk of magnesia, where there is no aluminum added as the one remedy I found most effective.

In my personal experience, the best remedies for psioriasis and eczema for adults and a very limited extent rheumatoid arthritis is the 1/4 teaspoon of sodium carbonate plus 1/4 teaspoon sodium carbonate in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day, once in the morning and 2 hours before sleep. The alkalization has a broad effects in killing off bacteria, but especially fungi which I often view it as a common cause of this condition. It should be noted that I have received many private feedback with results, although it simply can't be posted due to privacy issues. For this to work effectively, I find they have to be taken for about 2-3 weeks. It should be noted that the dose has to be adjusted by individual differences, so common sense applies.

A lupus condition, is often resulted in spilling of protein due to the pathogens often digest the body's cells, resulting in that conditions. In Mexico I found the that certain sources of contaminant resulting in lupus came from contaminated water usually from waste water where initial sickness from drinking water, is often the trigger. In other instances of life long eczema and psioriasis it comes from past living in a house high in fungus count.

A powerful simple remedy, but only superficially to reduce extreme itchiness, at least my newer remedies, is a mixture of milk of magnesia one TABLESPOON with one TEASPOON of ammonium chloride (or ammonium bicarbonate) in 1/2 glass of water for TOPICAL external application to the effected area. It will cause the stinging (killing off the fungus) then the itchiness and irritation will go away.

In the long run, adding some borax to the drinking water is helpful for many conditions such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis since boron (found in borax) is an essential mineral. A general dose that I use, a more conservative one may be 1/8 teaspoon of borax per one liter of water as a source of drinking water. It should be noted that drinking this may result in detoxification and result in loose stools if it is taken along with meals, but it won't cause loose stools if taken on an empty stomach, so if it is not taking immediately with meals than its ok. But there is a twist to this issue, if they are taken to cause a loose stool and along with food, the detoxification results and most of the inflammation, whether they be skin, kidneys, or joints are reduced within an hour or two after going to the bathroom by reducing the pathogen load the body has to carry. Usually these are taken 4 or 5 days out of a week.

Interestingly spirulina dn chlorella, taken once every two days, is a metal chelator, and so is cilantro (U.S. calls it that - but in some parts of the world is called chinese parsley or coriander - it's the same) If they are taken alone or in combination once every two days, or once every other day, the free metals is reduced, which starves the fungus, mycoplasma and other pathogens of their protection from food source and these tend to hide behind the heavy metals rendering antibiotics completely ineffective. They also hide in calcium shells, but that's another matter. A lemon and baking soda remedy such as two tablespoon of lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass ofw ater taken twice or three times a day will reduce the calcium shells used to protect these organism. In a few cases artemisia is helpful in some cases of lupus, often called wormwood too, but I find the borax/baking soda to be of most help for the lupus.

A newer addition of the supplements, chromium picolinate is helpful to these general conditions, of lupus and in a limited way, eczema and psioriasis by their very mechanism in reducing the blood sugar, which starves the pathogens of their primarily food source: sugar.

It's really difficult to cover every aspect of the sickness, but the primary trigger in decaying of organism or a person who is sick is metabolic acidosis, often trigger by acid forming food. The primary trigger for these are quite often wheat, white bread, meats, sweets, coke, pepsi, and all sour foods.
