Lupus or Thyroid Related Problems
Hi Ted, The following link describes the problems i've been having for the last 5 years...
I don't know for sure, but my gut feeling is these problems may be Lupus and/or thyroid related. Just recently I have been supplementing with: MSM 6000mg per day Complete Vitamin B complex DGL Chewable Liquorice 2280mg daily Mastic Gum 1000mg daily before bed (I started taking the DGL and Mastic Gum as I read that a bacteria known as H. Ployri was a possible cause for Urticaria) I have been taking the MSM very recently, all the other things I have been taking for 4 weeks. I have only just noticed a difference in my skin. My bloody vessels are not as inflamed, skin is smoother and my face looks alot clearer & moisturised! I have only been on the MSM for 3 days but noticed this massive improvement! So I shall continue what I am doing.
What do you make of this? Does this point the finger at Lupus being the culprit of all my problems?! Can I start adding other supplements to further my healing? My dream is for the Urticaria to clear up so I can start playing sports again! I havn't done for over 5 years now and it has made me very depressed. BTW I started taking the MSM just in the off chance it may help me, i'm so glad it has and only today I found the Earth Clinic page which has some very encouraging ideas! I'm very keen to know your views on this? and any possible guidance you can give me. Thanks,
