Hi Everyone!
I have a few questions for the forum tonight. My first question is has anyone see a chiropractor to help treat their lupus or the symptoms? If you do or you have, do you find that it helped you or did it just make matters worse?
My next question has to do with an Ayuredic has anyone ever heard of them or has anyone ever treated with one? I know someone who is healthy who sees an Ayuredic and swears by them. I was just curious if anyone here has seen one and if so what were some of the treatments the Ayuredic recommended to treat their lupus?
I hope everyone is having a good weekend :-)

Hi Blu!

Okay, you've brought up a topic that comes along every now and then. It's a great question!!!

I see a chiro myself. I have my whole life.  My uncle is a chiro.  So anyway, I had to cut WAY back on the treatments once I had my diagnosis.  Reason is that every time I got a few adjustments done close together, I would flare up.  I never connected the two until I did some research and talked to my uncle about the occurances.

Chiropractic treatments, especially the manual adjustments done to the neck, are extremely effective in boosting or enhancing the immune system.  NOT what we lupins want, right!  We need a suppressed and quiet immune system.  So that is why I was flaring up after 2 or 3 adjustments within a couple of weeks of each other. They definitely make my situation worse if I have too many.  Massage seems to be okay for me though.

Now I only get an adjustment if I'm desperate.... I get them more often on my back which seems to not make me flare, but I only get an adjustment a couple times a month now, just to air on caution.  So be careful when you're getting them.  Don't do it too often!

I haven't ever heard of an Ayuredic.  What is it?  I'm curious!

Hi All!

I'm sorry I spelled it wrong its Ayurvedic. From what I am reading it is a physician who studies hindu medicine and treats people using yoga, meditation, spices, herbs and food to treat their patients. Sounds to me something like a nautropath. I was able to find out some information on and I was wondering if anyone else had heard of them or in fact had been seen by one and if so what did they think?

Sorry for the spelling error!
