I'm Allyson, I'm 48 yrs old and I was first diagnosed with Lupus in 2004.
When the doctor told me I had Lupus I basically shrugged my shoulders and he said to me "do you understand you are going to be a very sick girl?" I walked out of the room and I was so angry at him telling me I was going to be very sick!
Anyway, in January this year I went to the doctor because my thumb joint was killing me and he asked if I had any other joint pain. I said yes in my elbows when I wash my hair. He then sent me for blood tests and yes it was Lupus.
I then started sourcing information on Lupus and ways to beat it.
In Feb 2013 I came across some info about a water technique which I have been doing everyday since.
In March I saw a screening of FoodMatters.tv and this short documentary changed my life. I decided there and then that I had nothing to lose by trying to beat Lupus the natural way without drugs.
My eating habits have totally changed, I now eat 80% raw foods and so far the results have been incredible. The joint pain in my thumb and elbows has gone totally. I still have lower back pain (which I never even knew was related to my Lupus till very recently).
At the beginning of June I decided I needed to also get rid of all toxins in my house so I sourced a company where I could get safe products to replace everything in my household. The bonus being that this company has everything from toothpaste to shampoo to skin care to car care to cleaning products and it's all delivered to my house and it works out cheaper! I now have nothing at all with nasty chemicals in my home. I'm now in a totally clean environment inside and out!
My results so far this year are:
No more thumb and elbow pain
A loss of 11kgs in weight (this is awesome!)
Perfectly flawless skin (first time in over 30 years)
More energy than ever before
My next step is a mixture of natural supplements for my lower back pain. I will be starting on those within the next few days and I will update my progress as I go.
I will never give in to Lupus and I do believe that every disease is reversible but you have to make the decision to beat it, and that's what I have done with changing my inside and outside health.
