Hi all, so like I said in a few of my past posts that I had to stop the plaq and when I informed my rheum he seemed baffled by the side effects. I was NOT happy with his reaction to me.
Yesterday I went to see him and he was way more receptive than he was on the phone.
He agreed the plaq was not for me. He knows I am big into natural approaches to health and he suggested I go natural. I was shocked!!! Most Docs would not even suggest anything natural since they are pretty much conditioned by drug co's.
The suggestions he made I knew about already (I have a good background in natural healers) but he mentioned something called SEMe (which is all natural) I've not googled it yet, but he said about 10 yrs ago the Rheum journals were touting this as a good aid in Lupus.
My rheum will continue to monitor me and suggested if I find any more good info, to please email him.
I was pleasantly surprised by his attitude. I left there feeling like he was really listening to me.
So question" have any of you heard of SEMe and or have you used it?
Does anyone here use MSM or any other natural products?
I used MSM and started on L-Glutamine which helps with lupus aches and pains. It's also wonderful for IBS. No side effects at all. The 2 weeks I've been on it I've felt pretty darn good.
Any input would be great
