Lupus Flare-up Question

Posted by Anon on 04/26/2011

Hello Ted,

I have read your posts on lupus treatment and thanks much for them!

I have probably a flare-up now - inflammed bowels (trying to keep a GF diet now, but still), liver/gall-bladder, lymph-nodes around testicles and maybe kidneys (those are the areas, that hurt) - I know you are very busy, but please, could you write me just a short list of most important things to do/supplement now according to your current knowledge (many of Your posts are from 2006, so I don't know what is up to date)?

Hopefully you will be able to respond soon, before the inflammation gets worse... thank you very much! If there's some PayPal donation possibility for you, I would definitely like to do that.

Thanks again,

P.S.

I have one more question, which isn't so urgent, but I'd like to know your opinion sometime - recent growth of the paleo-nutrition theory and regime confuses me a bit, because they base a lot of the food on (fatty) red meat. Is it true, that it worsens lupus, or do you think this kind of diet is suitable for lupus? (For example blogs at donmatesz.blogspot.com, archevore.com, or high-fat-nutrition.blogspot.com). (Also I was recommended psyllium etc. for a colon cleanse, NONI for supplementation etc. for the initial detox, if it's of any use?)

The update version is as follows:

Borax and hydrogen peroxide is the same as per postings in 2006. As for the other ones:

Beta glucan. 1/8 teaspoon 4 times a day
Lysine 1/2 teaspoon four times a day.

So certain kinds of lupus may come from environment. So this is to address that:

bentonite clay with water to a consistency of a thin paste. This is applied to face, arms, legs and perhaps torso. It applied and fan dried and wash. Then it is applied again, dried and wash and applied and dried again. So it is done three times. I prefer it is done twice a day that way. The application will dry up the skin so I used a light solution of aloe vera oil. I think the application should be done for 3 to 7 days and most of the lupus should reduce.

The other is magnesium chloride solution is applied after the above finish. It may me taken internally also at 8 drops before meals and twice a day.

Your question:

Is it true, that it worsens lupus, or do you think this kind of diet is suitable for lupus?

My experience has not been so good. It causes flare up for a whole months on just one meal. Psyllium may help yes.
