Hi everyone God bless you my name is Johnny I am an American minster/missionary living in the Philippines and I have had SLE LUPUS for about 5 years now. My biggest problem or enemy is stress/diet and the sun, I keep in constant horrible dual pain in my bones and joints from my head to my toes, and I really have to be careful of what I eat, nightshade foods activate my LUPUS. I take PLAQUENIL-PREDNISONE – CELLABRIX, among other things, but it seems like nothing helps the pain and fatigue, I talked to an x doctor whose gave up his practice because his sister died when the LUPUS effected her lungs, at the age of 30 and he was the one taking care of her. so now he can’t live with himself, he told me that Diet/Exercise and a good natural colon/body cleansing and heavy metal detoxification is the only answer! I don’t if that’s true but it would sure be worth it to find out right? Has anyone ever heard this before, here in South East Asia they try to cure every naturally. And I like the idea and want to find out more about it.
May God Bless and hold you all in this difficult struggle
In His Grip

I welcome you to the forum. you will find the best well informed people about Lupus ideas and facts to be found anywhere.
ONe of the thing that you and and another person talked about. flu shots. I took my first flu shot in my life, in October 2007. I decided not to do it again. also a phnumonia shot, but will not try it again either. After that flu shot, I had a hacking dry cough, that I could not get rid of.
It was in April this year, that I went into a really hard flare. and now I wonder if the flu shot caused it.
Thank you for sharing
Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I am sort of scared to do some things, afraid I will make myself worse, if I do something to unbalance the quo.
It is interesting about the mercury poison though. The problem finds me questioning and wondering why some of us become toxic and others do not. The flu shot does not seem to have this same effect with everyone. Maybe some of us have a sort of allegic reasons to respond
