So I was diagnosed with Lupus about 2 yrs ago. No symptoms, was feeling fine up until i got a weird rash on my left quad when I was out hiking one afternoon. I was told I had high inflammation. So instead of researching what was wrong with me, I subjected to trying this medication called Hydroxychlorine. 3 month trial of that actually made me sick, hair loss, numb fingers, toes, dizziness. Sick! And Inflammation actually increased. The rheumatologist suggested I take a higher dose so my system adjust quicker to the meds (Ha what a joke right) Declined! Brain became alert, my health became priority. Detoxed naturally off that medication, put myself on a anti-inflammation diet and go figure inflammation decreased dramatically! Duh it's the foods!! The doc didnt even seem to care my inflammation improved. He was a jerk and still suggested I try a different medication. (I changed doctors)
This whole diet, stress, confusion changed my digestive system. I looked into holistic homeopathy treatments since I'm so over going to the doctors just wanting to poison me with medication. A good friend reffered me to Chinese herbalist (Orange County, CA)
Took a Biomeridian test that pointed out the organs I needed to repair. Colon, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, liver and my heart. I trusted this man more then all the doctors I've ever seen in my life. 40 pills total a day, all herbs, natural. Then BOOM, Month later I have my strength & energy back. Happy, feeling better. Slowly getting back to my intense workouts then eventually back to martial arts. I still notice a lil sun sensitivity maybe a rash here and there depending on what I eat but totally learning the ins and outs of my body for healing. No processed,fried foods, definitely no bread. I'm lactose so no dairy and have been skipping out on the red meat.
My meals consist of juicing veggies more than fruits pitaya bowls for breakfast chicken, Salmon. Alot of salads. (Similar to the Mediterranean diet) Organic is good but could get a lil pricey!
Along with the herbal pills I was given, I also drink aloe vera shots, Olive oil every morning, coconut oil after my meals, Moringa seeds garlic pills, Vitamin D., Biotin from Mothers Market. (I know it's alot, but I'm not trying to die yet)
Staying active, Yoga, very early hikes, Prayer and a positive mind helps tremendously. God bless and hope you all heal.
P.s. Castor oil on the scalp at bed time (wrap it) for hair growth.
