Five years ago I was suddenly hit with a horrible illness. But it wasn't till three years ago that I was diagnosed with Lupus. I have not yet given into any prescription medication, but only because I have been able to control it with what I eat. My physical body structure has scoliosis and lordosis so I would suffer from a lot of pain in the arms, neck, and shoulders, to the point I couldn't work. I have tried different types of natural healing therapies and nothing really has helped. Except for a diet I have been very dedicated too. That is Gluten-Free. I am now 100% gluten free, and it is amazing how much the pain has reduced. I am able to do a regular days work. I also avoid direct sun light and try to consume the least amount of sugar and fried foods. I as well drink smoothies with high anti-oxidants , ginger and tumeric. Drinking Ginger and Tumeric teas as well help. The diet has given me my life back and eating health will not hurt, but really help. It took me around 10 days to start to see the difference. Please do your research about it and talk to your doctor to make sure the diet won't affect you in any way.
