I haven't heard of a Dr recommending that 'treatment' for autoimmune disorders.
I do know that there are some foods that are better or worse for inflammation. Inflammation is a huge part of an autoimmune issue, and may be part of why your face is getting flushed/hot.
Hot/flushed face is also associated with many thyroid disorders, as well as with menopause. Did your Dr do any tests?
If you've ever looked at the main reference on Lupus, "The Lupus Book: A Guide for Patients and Their Families" by Dr Daniel Wallace, you'll see that many of us have actual allergies
to legumes -- and as I understand it legumes (beans) are the main source of protein in a vegan diet. For that reason, (plus I actually hate legumes,) I would never try a month on a vegan diet.
I think I'd consider using organic chicken/beef (to avoid hormones & other additives) before I'd go vegan. Just my $.02.
