Do You Recommend People Stop Medication Before Using Natural Treatment
I have been diagnosed with lupus for 3 years now. I have been on many medications and tried the gluten free diet. I was on the diet for about 7 months and ended up in the hospital because my lupus turned from attacking my joints to attacking my muscles. I was then diagnosed with polymyositis with arthritis, my muscles broke down and I could barely walk or raise my arms. In the hospital they started me on a mega dose of Prednisone and I slowly recovered over this past year and a half. I am now off prednisone but take 15mgs of methotrexate each week. (I call it my poisen) It seems to be working ok for now but I would rather use a natural method. Do you recommend for people to stop medication before using natural treatments first? Or can they use vitamin therapies and natural treatments and stay on their medications? I will admit I am a bit of a sceptic because my last try at a natural cure ended up with me hospitalized.
