[YEA] Dear Ted, Re: SLE - Lupus remedies feedback (baking soda, borax, ACV and coriander)
I thank God for you and for leading me to earthclinic when I started researching on lupus to understand what lupus was all about. Numerous renowned medical websites and my rheumatologist claim lupus causes are not known, there's no cure and advocate prescribed drugs are the only way to put lupus under control, some with lifetime consumption. I was deceived by such websites and my rheumatologist initially until I found your contributions in earthclinic. I've got a rheumatologist who is always quick to add dosages in the name of preventing flare-ups, by simply basing on unreliable numbers from laboratory tests which are not lupus-specific, scares me. You have imparted valuable truths and knowledge for healthy living. Thank you very much for being very patient, very kind and very committed in finding lupus cure and with me. I suppose this is not your job and you are doing this outside your working time, I truly appreciate you and all that you have done.
I'm in my mid-30s, I've got SLE with no organs implications. I'm weaning off prednisolone which I've taken for 2½ years, the side effects were getting more unbearable and worrisome and the frequency of pains and inflammation were on the increase without your lupus remedies, dropped plaquenil recently which caused blindness intermittently and I've tried traditional chinese medication for 5 weeks which gave me many other side effects, your lupus remedies gave me strong confidence to wean off prednisolone. I know long-term consumption of prednisolone will shut down my immune system and from a patient's point of view and experience, I concur with you that I should not suppress my immune system. Insofar I strongly believe there's no way I can wean off prednisolone without your lupus remedies. Your lupus remedies deal with the causes and hence the pain reduction or elimination and in my opinion, they do it speedily relative to the other treatments I've tried. I hardly change my diet to know and monitor what works for me and against me.
When I first read about your borax treatment on earthclinic, I had much faith in it even before I tried it. The very mention of lupus nanoinsects feeding on heavy metals caused me to link it with the nose infection I had about 8 years ago and I thought it made so much sense. I developed this nose infection shortly after I joined a MNC selling valves when I had to come into contact with them. I had 1 dent on each side of my nose, they looked like my flesh has been eaten up. Before this nose infection was cured 7 years ago, the scalps were never dried up and were growing bigger by and by. I had a biopsy done 7 years ago and I just found out recently I had discoid lupus then.
Over the last 6 months, I've tried your lupus remedies separately to see and feel my body's response to each of them:
1) 1/8 teaspoon of borax in 1 litre of water on empty stomach - I drank 250 ml 4 times a day and eating fresh coriander on empty stomach everyday to chelate mercury which feeds the lupus nanoinsects
When I first started borax treatment, I took it 4 days consecutively. I didn't see any lupus nanoinsects (tiny black dots) surfacing from my skin and I didn't have diarrhea, I used a see-through glass container to collect my stools hoping to see these tiny black dots. My stools are usually light brown to medium brown but during these 4 days, my stools were totally covered by so much of these tiny black dots (I broke down the stools with water to make sure they were not black stools to begin with) and I also experienced constipation and had piles. I understood from you that the dead lupus nanoinsects also cause inflammation hence the constipation and the piles did not make me stop the borax treatment. No more piles for subsequent borax treatments. I had loss of appetite and I experienced drowsiness whenever I take this borax treatment and I welcome drowsiness because I could sleep only 2-4 hours a day for the last decade. For a few months, I was very aggressive on borax treatment because I knew I had 'sticky blood', evident by the big blood clots from my periods. I made the mistake of not unclotting my blood first to allow the borax treatment penetrate into all my cells. The lupus nanoinsects were kinda wrapped up inside the blood clots. I used asprin as per your advice to unclot my blood and I have much lesser 'black blood' during menstruation now, which I've learnt from you that it is an indication of lowered levels of bacterial infection. I'm less dependent of borax treatment now that I don't see tiny black dots from my stools.
2) ½ teaspoon of baking soda in ½ mug of water on empty stomach once in the morning and once before bedtime in the evening to provide unfavourable terrain for mycoplasmas growth
Recently, I had a very speedy recovery from flare-up using this. I had a huge flare-up (intense pains and inflammation everywhere in my body) caused by eating vegetables not cleared of chemicals previously sprayed on them and sugar intake. The chemicals and sugar seem to fuel mycoplasmas growth very fast, gauging from the speed and intensity of pains and inflammation spreading all over my body. Bearing in mind I've been taking prednisolone and plaquenil faithfully since 2½ years ago, they didn't help one bit in any way whenever flare-ups occur. Then I took baking soda treatment and borax treatment on empty stomach, on an alternate basis with 1 hour interval 3-4 times each and only had one meal for the day before I took medicine, the pains and inflammation reduced by 80% at the end of the same day. The next day and the day after, I simply take the baking soda treatment as per normal without taking borax treatment, no more pains and inflammation by the 3rd day. I didn't see any tiny black dots from my stools during these 3 days, figured baking soda treatment did the job. The existence of lupus nanoinsects or mycoplasmas give rise to the same kind of pains and inflammation.
3) 1 teaspoon of baking soda + 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar + 8 teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice + 250 ml of water on empty stomach
Prior to asprin intake, this ACV treatment has made my blood less sticky, the blood clots became smaller. Together with baking soda treatment, the white coating (candida) on my tongue is getting less concentrated, I see more redness on my tongue. From http://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/acvinegar.html#why, I'm sure it also helps me in many areas which I'm not aware of.
I shout "YEA! YEA! YEA!" to the abovementioned lupus remedies.
God Bless You
