Mother with Lupus
Hi Ted, My mother was recently diagnosed with Lupus. The doctors say there is no cure. The doctors had first assumed that she suffered from an unknown type of arthritis. They kept switching her medication yearly, but her pain never lessened. She has suffered from this pain for approximately 6 years. She has severe flare ups, they occur at random. The wellings are very red, painful, and ususally occur in the joints of her hands, elbows, knees, shoulders, wrists, etc. It is very difficult for her to move her limbs when these flares occur. After a recent visit to the rheumotologist, it was determined that she has Lupus. While researching we came across your page on Lupus on the earthclinic website. We are hoping that you will be able to provide us with a way to help our mother. Many people seemed to have benefitted from your assistance. She is in her late 40s, average build, not overweight, but she does have high blood pressure. Her skin appears to be pale, and she is very weak. After reading your page, we have decided to start providing her with baking soda and borax as you consistently mention. What dose should we give her? What other types of vitamins should she take? Can you please provide us with some recommendations as to what steps we should take, and what medications or remedies we should use to help her and eventually make this Lupus dissapear.
Thank you soo much for your time, it is greatly appreciated.
