Borax is obtained in US from Mule Team borax used as laundry detergent. In other countries is obtained as borax food grade or commercial grade borax. H2O2 3% is prepared from higher concentration medical grade and dilute it down to 3%. She may respond well to any trace elements such as copper chlorophyllin, zinc, EDTA, etc. There are many other supplements but it boils down to fungus as cause of lupus. She will respond to ozone therapy also. Since there is no stores that handles this you might have to obtain from chemical supplier. Ted

Asma, Lupus is an autoimmune disease for which low dose naltrexone (LDN) has been shown to be effective. Dr. Burt Berkson had two aunts who had lupus, and he asked them if they would like to try LDN. They did and both had no more symptoms, as long as they remain on the LDN. Here is the site to read about it| www.ldninfo.org

There is a Yahoo LDN Group mentioned on the LDN site with over 11,000 members and if you join, they will be happy to answer any questions you may have. People who take it for lupus will tell you their results, if you ask. It is FDA approved at 50 mg/day, but lowdose is 1.5 - 4.5/day. The group can tell you how to make low dose with a 50mg pill. It sells in India at pharmacies, without a prescription, so you may be able to get it that way in PK. The names it comes under are: REVIA, ARROP, DEPADE, NODICT, NALTIMA OR NALTREXONA

Your sister would need to take 3 - 4.5 mg per day. It has no toxic side effects, but could disturb sleep for the first week or so. It is inexpensive but needs to be taken once a day to halt many autoimmune diseases (MS, Crohn's, some cancers, helps HIV, UC, Hasimotos, etc) by modulating the immune system. Best wishes!

Asma: The number one economy in the world is a toxin, hydrocarbons. The number two economy in the world is a toxin, meds. The number three economy in the world is a toxin, food. The least expensive way to nourish the cells properly and detox the poisons is to make home brewed water kefir from 75g/quart organic or traditionally grown whole flours. Keep fat below 10%/calorie. Take 1/2 coconut oil and 1/2 oil high in omega 3. Believe in God and have faith in His Goodies.

Hello Asma,

Re Lupus/SLE treatment:

First go to "Ailments" on this Earth Clinic site and look for "Lupus" and there is a whole section dedicated to the various treatment methods and causes. About two thirds of the way down in the column is the "Lupus Theory" section. You'll find a post that sites an article in the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases in its 2005 research edition which presents compelling evidence that the Epstein-Barr virus is the cause/trigger of Lupus. Google "National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases Lupus Epstein-Barr" and you'll find the article; FASCINATING.

YET ANOTHER DEMONSTRATION of the insidious impact of viral infections.

The next issue is how to get rid of said virus; assuming the condition does not take on an independent life...but, nonetheless, the EB virus must be alive and still causing serious problems if the article is correct. And the writers of the article can show solid Evidence that it is the EB virus which is at work due to the Lupus onset relative to the antibody activity against the EB virus.

Hello,

my brother has been diagnosed with lupus since he was 15 and since then his health has become worse at 21 now. He has had many lupus flares and his arthritis has become unbearable. He's had bacterial infections in his blood, has lost so much weight and his facial structure has shifted and doesn't look like the same person anymore. I'm emailing because I'm worried that he's gotten so sick that he's going to die soon or the steroids and medication he's getting will harm his organs. The doctors dont know how to help him get better, they are simply giving medication to ease the symptoms. I'm very concerned and am trying to find something that will turn his life around and allow him to gain faith and at least live because he is not living, he is only getting by and getting worse. Please help!!

Low dose naltrexone has been shown to be effective in treating Lupus without any side effects. See this site, and then join the Yahoo LDN Group (listed on the LDN site) that has over 11,000 members who use FDA approved LDN. The members are very willing to help with their personal experiences and answer any questions you may have. www.ldninfo.org. Best wishes to you and your brother.

Your brother sounds like he is not getting enough vitamins and minerals. Stop the processed foods and eating out! Start him on fresh fruit juice you make at home in a juicer and juice fresh vegetables. 6 glasses a day, apples, oranges, beets, celery etc.

Stop using table salt and use Himalayan salt (you can buy it on Ebay). Salads, and more salads. No soft drinks or junk food.

Stop the sugar use maple syrup, honey, or stevia. Nuts are good for him as are Groats (you can ground them and eat them raw with organic milk. They are a form of oats. With all the vitamins. Millet is great for protein.

I had a cousin that only ate out and used junk food, diet aids and drank. She died at 51 from a form of Lupus.

Hope this helps.

It is known that Lupus can result from vaccine injury.

The most dangerous things to a lupus person and chronically ill people will be a conventional medical doctor and their pharma medications. It becomes terminal when the patient embraces toxic treatments.

Prescription medications will eventually kill the patient or make their health worse due to the side effects and the fact that they don't address the cause. Throwing in some natural medicines may not overcome the toxicity of the other medications. Unless the lupus person can wean themselves off the conventional medications and doctors, my advice won't be worth anything. I run into people all the time who refuse to listen to anybody but their doctor. Those people are incurable.

It is known that most people who die from lupus die due to complications, such as kidney failure or heart disease. There are also Lung and blood problems. So you need to address all these vital areas that will bring him down.

It is clear that people with lupus have blood coagulation problems. I happen to have a chronic disease also which cause blood coagulation problems. This is easy to address.

Protecting against heart disease is fairly straight forward. He should be taking high doses of nattokinase and serrapeptase. They won't have bad side effects. If he is on warfarinm coumadin etc, he needs to wean himself off. He also needs to take K2 (ML7) to clean calcium from the arteries. This will keep him from dying from heart attack and strokes.

Of course, you will read lots of things that say - no studies have been done to prove this. There has been thousands of studies on fibrinolytic enzymes in China to prove their efficacy. No US studies have been done because it would effect make the prescribed medications obsolete. They won't allow that to happen. They do work. He would likely feel their efficacy within one month. I would also recommend other enzymes like bromelain etc. The will help his infections also.

Lung problems are usually caused by fungus. Normally the fungus in the stomach is under control but sometime it gets out of hand and spreads. Use of antibiotics will increase this likelihood. I am not saying don't use antibiotics but realize that if he has lung problems in the future, he may need to treat the fungus with nystatin and other antifungal agents. Coconut oil is an antifungal so that could help protect him from any fungus getting out of control.

Other people on here have had kidney problems so find their posts and read them. Look under ailment.

They say that people with lupus live up to 20 years after diagnosis. If they take matters into their own hands and go the natural route, they will likely live a lot longer.

The one barrier I see is how will you treat your brother with natural medications while the doctors are treating him.

Your brother might want to consider taking vitamin d because people who have lupus and have low serum vitamin d levels are more likely to have more symptoms while people with higher vitamin d serum levels are likely to have less symptoms related to lupus.

The following abstracts tend to confirm this:

http://arthritis-research.com/content/16/1/R49/abstract
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24503020
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24057183

One common symptom of lupus is sensitivity to sunlight which leads many people to avoid the sun and or use sunblock liberally, both of which will add to lower vitamin d serum level (25 OH d) and also treg cells which can lead to the appearance of more lupus symptoms.

The main way that most people get vitamin d is from the sun and not food. If you can't go out in the sun, then your vitamin d level is very likely to be deficient unless you supplement with vitamin d at doses that are capable of moving your serum level into the reference range( 30~100 ng/ml).

There are many health benefits to being vitamin d sufficient and many of the multiple symptoms of lupus can be associated with low serum levels of vitamin d, so it may be worth it for your brother to at least discuss this option with his doctor.

People from Lupus die from complications of the kidney, heart, lung and blood. The life expectancy is just 20 years after diagnosis. I can understand why it is just 20 years. Conventional medicine is generally toxic to chronically ill people. Vaccination is one of the major causes of lupus.

Since there may not be a simple cure for the disease, the individual general problems need to be addressed if you want to protect him from dying. I think if he goes natural, he will out live most people who have the disease. This is critical to success. Mixing prescription medications with natural medicines lowers the odds of success.

The thing that sticks out about the disease is the blood coagulation. I have a different chronic disease but the same problem. That needs to be eventually addressed. You can protect your brother from heart disease with nattokinase, serrapeptase and vitamin K2 (ML7 form). I would advise you use enzyme therapy to add other enzymes like bromelaine etc. These will help with other infection in the body also.

His body is likely depleted of many vitamins and minerals. make sure he uses the activated B vitamins. A, C, E, Selenium, D3 are others he should take. He should minimize processed foods. If possiblem go non GMO. Filter out the floridation from the water. I would have him take coconut oil to protect him against fungus problems that can attack the lungs.

Chronic illness is a complex health problem unless the underlying infection causing lupus can be addressed so each area of body needs to be addressed separately. Improving one area will improve other areas.

What type of arthritis does your brother have ?

Hi, does anybody have any latest info on cures/treatments for Systemic Lupus? Does the ACV not cause any infections when the immune system has been suppressed by steroids. My daughter has SLE and I want to treat her with nature's medicine. Also has anyone experimented with black seed oil?

Posted by Belinda (Houston, Texas) on 09/23/2011

Hi, my name is Belinda and I've been diagnosed with Lupus SLE. I'm new to this site and have enjoyed reading all that I see. I am currently experiencing pitting edema in my feet, ankles and legs (seems like it's trying to go into my thighs). The edema started about a little over a month ago and don't know what caused it. I'm thinking that it may have to do with my kidneys not functioning properly. I was put on Lasix but it didn't work for me so I just started taking Demadex (diuretic) 20mg 2x daily as needed. I also take Prednisone 30 mg and Folice acid for the lupus. I recently had some blood work done and the results show that my blood is very low but I have had problems being low blood for years. My white blood cell count is 10 (4.0-10.5), Red Blood Cell count is 3.17 (3.80-5.10), Hemoglobin is 9 (11.5-15.0), Hematocrit is 28 (34.0-44.0), Albumin-Serum 2.3 (3.5-5.5), Platelets 295 (140-415), Lymphs 4 (14-46) and Lymphs-Absolute 0. 4 (0.7-4.5), Monocytes 3 (4-13) and Monocytes-Absolute 0.3 (0.1-1.0). The results also showed that my Potassium Serum is high 5.7 (3.5-5.2), Carbon Dioxide-Total is 18 (20-32), Calcium-Serum 7.8 (8.7-10.2), Sodium-Serum 137 (135-145), BUN is 35 (6-24), Creatinine-Serum 1.26 (0.57-1.00), BUN/Creatinine Ratio is 28 (9-23), EGFR IS 60 (>59). My doctor told me to start taking 1/2 tsp baking soda daily for the high potassium and iron tablets 2x daily for the low blood. I think she also wants me to do infusions.

I've been reading different postings here on the site and it's been very knowledgeable to me. What remedy would you suggest to treat or improve my numbers? I don't like taking medication do to the damage it can cause and do... I'm trying to go holistic and use what God gave us for health and healing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hello Ted, thank you for describing lupus as a blue-black patch on the skin (arm) which no doctor wanted or was able to confirm it.

And from all the postings, it seems that everyone has a different path towards developing lupus.

I just want to share with you that a nutritionist/medical physician has told me that lupus is either due to copper or zinc overload in the beginning. I must say that I am inclined to agree on that point first as most vegetarians tend to take in more copper from their food.

I am working on copper overload first. An infra-red lamp is recommended in the sauna therapy.

Salt Therapy   0  0   

Posted by Neal (Asheville, North Carolina Usa) on 02/20/2013

Hello Ted, I was wondering if you had any information about using salt therapy in the treatment of Lupus? By salt therapy I am referring to a manufactured salt micro climate similar to what is found in a salt mine. I have 'built' a micro climate of Himalayan and Polish salt from approximately 20 tons of salt mined from approximately 1-2 miles underground from salt that is about 200 million years old. This 'cave' is a controlled environment kept at between 67-72 degrees fahrenheit and 50-60% humidity. This mimics the conditions in a salt mine.

This type of treatment has been shown to be beneficial for respiratory problems (asthma, bronchitis, allergies), dermatologic problems (eczema, psoriasis, acne), hypertension, stomach disorders, stress, and some autoimmune diseases, but have not found specific guidelines for Lupus.

Could you let me know of any findings you have that might support this treatment for sufferers of Lupus. Thank you, Neal from Sola

Posted by Deborah (New York, NY) on 04/01/2012

[YEA]  Last year I was diagnosed with cutaneous lupus. I have two large skin patches one on my arm and one on my left butt cheek. These are itchy and feel bruised and have also atrophied to leave a concave indentation in my flesh. I am told that this is because the inflammation is in my subcutanaeous fat. I'd like to say I have found a cure for these but I have not - yet. HOWEVER. I began to have accompanying joint pain - terrible nipping pains and feeling constantly like I had been in a car accident - an all over feeling off stiffness and bad bruising. It was debilitating and depressing. Through exhaustive research, trial and error I have found two supplements that are working for me and have decreased the pain SIGNIFICANTLY. One is CM - cetyl myristoleate. I would advise Googling it and doing your own research but I could find no down side. The other is Perna - green lipped mussel extract - a fairly high dose. I began taking these two things together and initially my symptoms worsened but suddenly and quite dramatically the pain lifted. I do think these are worth a try for anyone suffering from chronic joint pain. They certainly changed my life.

One more note on the lupus. I have recently been seeing a new and very good naturopath. Through stool testing for parasites we discovered that I have a very high level of the parasite blastocystis hominis. Also of candida. I knew about the candida and that it was probably part of the lupus causing package but the parasite is a new and interesting development. I will be treating both of these things appropriately with herbs and continued healthy diet (I am completely gluten, caffeine, dairy, soy, alcohol, sugar, nightshade and red meat free; I am a great cook and its really not as hard as it sounds) and will be very curious to see the health benefits of getting rid of these critters. My naturopath feels that they could very likely be a major contributing factor to the jangling of my nervous/immune system that caused the lupus. I will report back with results and would love to hear if anyone else has discovered a parasite/lupus link. If I can help or support anyone else in their healing journey please let me know. Thanks and good health to all.

Hi: My name is Ineke, I found out I had Lupus 4 weeks ago. I am on predisone and hydroxychoroquine. What a combo.....The predisone only works if taken in doses of 30 mg a day or higher. Its not the drug for me to be on. Can't sleep through the night and it makes me very edgy. Anyway I started taking Olive Leaf extract 2 capsules twice daily, msm 2000 mg twice daily, probiotic enzyme two tablets a day, purce bovine colostrum from first milking, and I had adjusted my diet, I do notice that sugar.....bad......refined carbs, bad.....so far it hasn't made a difference, buts its only been 5 days since I started the natural supplements,, but, I am hopeful for results.

Any advise is welcomed.

I caught an infection from trying on pants in a store that someone had before and now I have the disease. I find that if you try homeopathy, there was clearly no other choice after trying traditional medicine. I also find that with homeopathic medicine, nothing happens at first until 6mo-1 yr. later and then it finally works. Problem is with that though, if you don't know what you're doing and you're just testing alternative therapies, you can waste a long time on the wrong alternative medicine.

Can someone please help me? I have been dealing with a skin burning problem for over 10 years when exposed to UV computer screens, TVs, lighting in stores, regular light, and sun. It's feels like a burn/inflammation. I think it might be connected to lupus as I had the rash 10 years ago. The rash never came back but the burning is relentless. I've tried fish oil, turmeric, acv, eating only veggies, vit e (which helps a little), cinnamon, and so so many other things to no avail. I work at a computer for 8 hours so I can't escape the burn. My whole life revolves around avoiding any kind of light, cooking in the dark, going blind b/c I have to turn down my computer screen so dark so I don't burn. Has anyone heard of this? Is there a cure? I'll try anything!

Posted by Altaf (Mumbai, India) on 08/17/2013

Ted: my sister aged 32 yrs was diagnosed of systemic lupus erythromatosis (SLE) in 2007 and has been on med: steroid (Prednisolone), non-steroid (methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine), warfarin (Acitrome), metaxcel (for endocarditis) and much more with some improvement in the past 6 years. Recently I came across this website with natural remedies which I got interested to try for my sister. I have recently (13/08/2013) started her with baking soda (Na-bi-carbonate) (1/2 tea spoon in half glass of filtered water) in the morning on empty stomach and before bedtime (at least 2hrs after dinner). Today (17/08/2013) morning (it was baking soda off day) when she took 2 teaspoons of sea salt with one glass of water on empty stomach (as suggested by you in one of your article on 'want to know top 10 lupus supplements') which I thought worth trying. But she could hold this in her stomach for an hour before she vomitted and soon followed by diarrhoea. Is this expected and okay? I plan to start her on borax (1/8th tea spoon in one liter of water throughout the day) from next week (26/08/2013) so that she can have enough pH buffering from baking soda. I would appreciate your comment on the sea salt issue and any suggestions or changes to help us implement these remedies correctly and efficiently. Thanks. God bless!

Altaf, Here is a database for users of Low Dose Naltrexone and Lupus: http://www.ldndatabase.com/Lupus.html

If you google LDN and lupus you will see other experiences of people with lupus successfully using FDA approved, low cost, no side effects LDN. And the best part, for you, is that it can be bought without a prescription at any pharmacy in India. (Trade names Revia, Naltima, etc.) If you get 50 mg. Tablets, simply dissolve one tablet in 50 ml. distilled water. Buy a children's syringe and withdraw from 3 to 4 ml of the solution and take it once every 24 hours, usually before bed. (No more often than this.) So easy. Store the rest of the solution in the refrigerator. Best wishes for improved health for your sister. For others reading this, look at www.ldninfo.org to see how it successfully treats a host of autoimmune diseases, including MS, Crohn's disease, UC, and many more. Published clinical trial are shown for Crohn's, AIDS and ongoing for MS and Fibro.

Hi: Any suggestion on whether should she stop her steroid and non-steroid meds before starting LDN OR can she start LDN and continue using her other meds and gradually get off them after seeing the response of LDN (since her regular meds are in the morning and this LDN would be at bedtime, amply spaced out) OR should she first gradually pull off all her other meds (possibly cleared from system) and then start LDN? Thanks again!

Hi Altaf, LDN can be taken with steroids and any other medication EXCEPT opiate based drugs. LDN and opiates both compete for the same receptors, and LDN will always win. This could put someone who is taking opiates into a serious and dangerous withdrawal. So, any medication is OK with LDN EXCEPT opiates. You can also join the Yahoo LDN Group that is mentioned at the www.ldninfo.org site, and the other members (over 10,000 people) are always willing to answer any questions you may have. Please let us know how your sister is doing. Best wishes!

Hello everyone ; I was diagnosed with Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in 2012; and I had difficulty accepting the diagnosis as I have always been a health freak. My 2 weaknesses were dairy products and chocolates. I was diagnosed by my GP, then went to a homeopath who confirmed the diagnosis a year later. I then discovered that there are ways to manage this sickness, of which one is to go the natural way.

I am a good cook, but sometimes I find it challenging to stay away from red meat, since I am also in the food industry. My problem is I do not pass any stools, I can go on for more than a month without going to the loo. My diet is mostly veggies, fruits, grains and beans, chicken and fish. I dont get constipated but my question is where is this food that I eat going to? I have a huge appetite, but its like there is a worm inside me that is moving up and down, and the sad part is I can feel it moving, is this normal for lupus patients? I feel like its eating me up inside especially since I am always heating up in my waist area and in my kidneys.

I am taking my meds and supplements, but I prefer the natural way. If and when I do go to the loo, there is there is practically nothing that reflects the amount of food that I eat all this time. I take a lot of detoxifying herbs, but I just urinate a lot but no stools. Any advice would be welcomed as I am always having a pain and heaviness)) in my groin especially the right side. Thanking you all in advance.

Noma: Parasite infestations almost always cause both digestive & immune disorders as a consequence. Here is a link to the E.C. page for this condition. http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/parasites.html

Roundworm & Tapeworms are the worst, although the Flukes can kill the host over time. Try all the herbal wormers first and if you're not feeling any better after a few weeks or couple of months, you will need pharmaceutical grade meds to eradicate the devils. CureZone has extensive post on this condition.
