I have noted that Diffuse Scleroderma is not an illness listed, but Crest, also known as Limite Scleroderma is listed. Can Ted, or anyone else advise if the protocol for Crest is the same for diffuse? if not, can you please suggest a protocol. What do you think about antibiotic protocol, taking 100MG twice a day? Thank you.
I have had pemphigus foliaceus (auto imune disease) since 1996 and am on dapsone 100mg plus 5mg prednisolone (daily) - would like to get rid of the prednisolone and replace it with Lypronol. Any thoughts?

I read with interest all the posts on autoimmune diseases and was greatly encouraged to see that others with autoimmune disorders are following what I have taken years to discover.. The paleo diet, dairy/gluten/free, no chemicals and pesticides and eating organic, etc. I have had H-Pylori twice and the leaky gut syndrome and am trying to rebuild the gut lining. I am wondering if anyone has more knowledge than I do as far as supplements go. I take Standard Process supplements and have been told that echinacea and other immune boosting supplements are vital but have read that taking those is bad for autoimmune sufferers by rheumatologists as it makes the disorders more active. I have Hashimoto's, RA and have now tested positive to Scleroderma, am a little nervous about taking echinacea, does anyone have any ideas? Boost or not boost the immune system?

Auto immune disease, a rapidly increasing global problem .
Your doctor tells you it is all in your head, you are just a hypochondriac imagining you have such severe problems. Maybe you just want attention. Maybe you are depressed and feel like wasting your doctors valuable time to treat a disease that does not exist. Perhaps you should go home take your antidepressants and speak to a psychiatrist
Or maybe you have an autoimmune disease.
Where did it come from? how did I get it? The answers may shock you.

I have often considered your theory on the link between autoimmune diseases and viruses. I have seen you helping many make these connections in specific situations. And I think I am seeing patterns in my own family. Looking back, I realized that my daughter suddenly had symptoms of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis right after having Hand Foot and Mouth Disease. This same child suddenly developed asthma right on the heels of mono. She is doing great, by the way and symptom free of both at this time. I have learned from you the importance of treating suspected viruses for a long time.
Anyway, this leads me to my question. Do you have any thoughts on why autoimmune diseases seem to have exploded in frequency? If there is a viral link, which seems quite plausible, was my grandparent's generation just much healthier and able to fight off viruses, or did they suffer the same way and the problems were undiagnosed?
I appreciate your thoughts.
