Ted's Remedies for Lupus
Our resident natural remedies expert offers a regimen that has brought more relief to sufferers than any other Lupus remedy. Ted's remedy concentrates on a few supplements and aims to alkalize the body, since putting your body in an acidic state seems to worsen Lupus symptoms.
- Twice daily, take a half-teaspoon of baking soda mixed in a small glass of water.
- Vitamin D supplements. Take 2000 - 20,000 i.u./day, especially during the winter.
- Avoid B6 and nicotinic acid supplements, as they are acid forming.
- Drink filtered water to reduce chlorine, fluoride, and heavy metals.
- Reduce or eliminate acid-forming foods such as sweets, meats, oily foods, white flour, fried foods, etc.
- Monitor your urine with pH strips to maintain a pH of 7.0 or greater through the above steps.
[YEA] 04/11/2006: Mayla from Adelanto, CA: "Ted's remedies cured my swelling of the joints and all the pain that I had due to the fact that I have Lupus and I am no longer taking any of my medications for it, I'm just on 17 different vitamins daily and I have changed my diet no read meat just lots of greens and fish,chicken not fried."
[YEA] 01/10/2006: Shara from PHILADELPHIA, PA: "Thank you so much!! I have been ill for my entire life but I was hospitalized when I was 13 yrs old. The Dr's had nothing useful to me other than a sugar and Saline drip and a lot of bed rest. They said that what I had looked like lupus but they could not peg it. Finally a few years ago I learned that Lupus ran in my family thus I believe that I may have a bastardized version of Lupus. My mother put me on a vitamin theorapy treatment of vitamins e,c,Lecithin, Bcomplex, multi, omega 3, Calcium, and many other things here and there. Just recently I have added Lipoic acid. I can honestly say that my lupus has not progressed as the Dr's were afraid of with out their treatment. They said that I would be in a wheelchair by the time I was 19 yrs old and now I am 29 and just having less episodes than when I was 13. I do still have episodes that consist of Extreme muscle break down, memory loss, Brown urine and extreme muscle cramping. Skin rashes are also a symptom along with facial sores that my have bonded with a herpes simplex virus. This mixture of herpes and lupus rash is a constant battle but I contain it by taking L-Lysine, Larrea Root, and Red Marine Algea. But still I am very vulnerable to virus attacks b/c of my immune system and when I contract a virus it sends me into an episode that can take me down for a week to a month depending on the virus. Anyway just wanted let you know that your information is very useful to me and I plan to use it daily"
[YEA] 10/05/2005: Aristo from New York, NY: "Before I say anything about this Holistic treatment on Lupus I would like to thank Ted from Bangkok, Thiland for posting this Lupus treatment on the internet.
I am 20 years old and I have been diagnosed with Lupus when I was 18. I have been taking pills for 2 1/2 years now and I was devastated. I've been to four different Rheumotologists - The best ones here in New York city and all of them told me the same thing. They told me that I'm going to have Lupus for the rest of my life and that I am going to have to take medications for the rest of my life so my Lupus conditions won't get worse. That's a lie!!! This is a true story of my life experiences I want everyone with Lupus to read about. Wether your conditions are mild, moderate, or severe. The things that Ted from Thailand said has saved me from this disease. I really thank you Ted.
My father had severe Lupus ever since I was 7 years old. My father took all his medications and went to the doctor for blood tests once a month and his Lupus became worse. First it affected his legs and he couln't walk well and when he walked fast he ended up falling on the ground. When I was 11 years old my father was hospitalized because at home his head was extreamely red and he had blood in his brain at the time. He stayed in the hospital for two months. He became a little bit better and he was released from the hospital. He was still very sick and he was getting worse as months went by. But when I was 18 years old my father ended up in the hospital for good. My father was 54 years old back then. For two years my father went from hospital to nursing home constantly and for two years I did not see my father home as I used to before that. I prayed everyday and I told god I want my father and everyone else who is sick to get better one day and live a healthy and normal life at home with their family.
That did not happen for me. My father took all his medications, two pnemonia vaccines, several surgeries, he was also on morphienes and in two years after he was transferred from hospital to nursing home he passed away at the age of 56 on December 11, 2004.
I have been diagnosed with Lupus when my father was in the hospital. I was given Plaquenil 200mg. I took it 2 times a day with Bayer asprin 81mg one a day. I took the plaquenil and the asprin for a year and a half. I developed arthritis on my shoulder, fingers, arms and legs. Two doctors gave me plaquenil at the time. My arthritis was getting worse and worse. My doctor told me it was because of the lupus so I decided to go to another doctor he gave me prednisone and it made me sleep all the time I told my doctor and he told me keep taking it as your body adjusts to the medication. I went to the fourth doctor, he told me to take Methylprednisolone 4mg, Chloroquine phosphate 250mg, and the Bayer asprin once a day. In 6 months I felt very week, my memory was not good, and everyone who saw me knew I was sick because my face had changed and I looked sick. I was tired of all this. For two years I was looking for the cure of Lupus and I came across what Ted wrote here so I told myself I will give it a try. I am taking a little more than what Ted mentioned above. I am taking Calcium/Magnesium 500mg/250mg, Vitamin E 400IU, Vitamin C with bioflavonoids 1000mg, vitamin B complex 50mg, Niacin (in the form of nicotinic acid) 100mg, Zinc 30mg, L-carnitine 500mg, Alpha Lipoic acid 60mg, and N-Acetyl-L-cysteine 600mg. I take all of these once a day along with Echinacea 3ml daily, RNA/DNA supplement 100mg/10mg daily. I know that Ted mentioned Cellfood but it's very expensive and I cannot afford it, and I also take Kyolic aged garlic 600mg 3 times a day for my arthritis. The only vitamin I am not taking is vitamin A. I have taken these vitamins and suplements for a month now and was shocked to see my blood test results. I compared my blood test results from last month (I was taking the medications) and This month (when I am taking my vitamins and supplements) I saw a big improvement on the results. The first blood test was terrible that was when I was taking my medicine. And my blood test results now are perfect with everything being at the normal range and it's as if I do not have Lupus at all. With these supplements and vitamins I feel strong, energetic, and my memory is perfect because I remember things clearly now and as a college student my grades are up too, I am very Happy now that I got my Lupus cured but I will still be taking my vitamins and supplements.
Thank you Ted from Bangkok Thiland for putting this on the internet."
[WARNING!] 07/31/2007: rhonda from tallahassee, fl, usa: "Concerning taking Vitamin D, one must be careful when taking it. It is important that it is balanced with Vitamin F. Some doctors will diagnose people with lupus when they actually have sarcoidosis, and diagnose them with sarcoidosis when they actually have lupus. The 2 are not the same, although they are both thought to have a type of mycobaterium involved, but not the same mycobacterium. Vitamin D would be very helpful for lupus but detrimental for sarc. The difference appears to be due to whether or not the mycobacteria has infected your macrophages. If this is the case, your active vitamin D levels will actually be high, even in the presence of low stored vitamin D. A good rule of thumb may be to have both the stored and active levels measured. If taken vitamin D causes you dizziness, this can also be a clue that you active levels may already be high. In this case, it needs to be balanced with Vitamin F."
