I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis 14 years ago. My grandmother told me about ACV and the many ways it could help arthritis, sleeping problems and stomach problems. I take 1 tbsp. once daily with just water and all of my physicals for the SLE & RA have come back great. I have no deformity in my joints and have not had a flare up in over 7 years. I also had several bleeding ulcers & was having to take daily stool samples to my doctor, but my physical showed scarring but no ulcers. I also use ACV as a toner for my face and my pores are smaller and my age spots are nearly invisible. I have printed out several pages of literature on ACV and have over 20 friends on this daily regimen and all of them can tell the difference and have been taken off their medications for their illnesses from arthritis to high blood pressure & cholesterol. I am a 48 year old grandmother that works with a younger market and I work circles around all of them. ACV helped me with my SLE, RA, Ulcers, Chronic Fatigue, Crohn's Disease and IBS.

Aloe Vera Juice and Probiotics
Posted by Sue (Albany, Ny) on 10/05/2014

I have had lupus since Dec 2013. Not sure what caused it. I don't have the skin lupus though. I have been taking ALOE VERA JUICE for 4 months now. Within two weeks of starting to take it my lupus symptoms reduced to where I felt almost normal. With no arthritis or pains anywhere in my body. I no longer felt like something sick was going on in my body. It needs to be cold pressed juice and not heat processed. **For lupus you need to take the maxium dosage. I worked my way up to 4 oz at one time, 4 times a day. It has changed the severity and I have had NO FLARES since I started taking it. If you have lupus you NEED to try this. I was told by the dr that manufactures this that she's had people who have used this for months and it had cured them or put them in remission. You have to take it at the max dosage faithfully every day as if it's medication for it continue to modulate your immune system and hopefully put you in remission, possible permantly. With this I've been taking a super strong Probiotic which will help your digestive track and immune system. Also take supplements.

Hydrogen Peroxide
Posted by Kokil (Roslyn Heights, NY) on 07/15/2013

Hi, I cured myself of Lupus within months by taking 25 drops hydrogen peroxide (food grade 35%) in 8oz water 3 times a day as well as this cured my vasculitis on my legs! I also combined this treatment with a purely homemade vegan diet (the RAVE diet) as well as green smoothies every day! Of course supplements helped as well, but I really feel the hydrogen peroxide cured me, as I was disparing 6 months ago with a lot of pain/swelling and fatigue and very high C-reactive protein levels in my blood.

Hope this helps others...


Lupus Caused by Medication
Posted by Janet (UK) on 06/13/2006

I would like to say that I totally agree with Ted's solution to this disease. Only thing is, I believe lupus is caused by the medication that they give you in the first place. Let's face it, the drugs they give out have been tested on animals. We do not have the same metabolism as these creatures that they test on. You cannot compare a rat's immune system to an adult's. We all know that these venom can eat from contaminated substances. "We can't," not without some awful result. A rat's immune system is probably over a thousand times stronger than any human being. So how can they compare drugs and these levels. I have lupus and I do not take anything anymore. I have been taking Pharmerton vitamins. And also been adviced on getting Hempseed oil, Pumpkinseed oil and Hemp Tea. It detoxes the body. I stopped taking the medication 4 months ago. I was getting so ill, and taking so many pills, loss of memory, all the things that go with rheumatoid. Then I realised that if I did not stop taking these drugs, I would definately die. I have not felt this good for two years. I won't even let them take a blood test. they are not sticking another needle in me. Taking blood from the system on a regular basis, cannot possibly to the human body any favours, especially if one is poorly, the last thing we should do to a sick person is to take a lot of blood. One drop of blood can tell so much. When are we going to learn. All lupus is caused by anti-inflammateries. etc., Your immune system lets them take over their work, so the immune system forgets how to protect, because something else has done it for it. I could go on forever. I will be writing and letting everyone know the true awful experience of the last 12 years of so called trusting NHS. So Ted, good on you my dear friend. I am spreading the word.

I have lupus, with kidney related problems, I was on dialysis for 6 months and taking steroids before I started my road to recovery with natural remedies, my DNA us still positive but overall I feel good most of the time, I have taken many products over the years, but the ones that have worked the most are a multi vitamin with minerals.

I am a woman so I feel that hormones play a role in my lupus as well, so I also take DNA 50mg a day in combination with dong quai, damiana, and maca, I use half the dose as directed by the bottle.

For the inflammation I use fish oil, 2,000 mg per day or more sometimes, and for kidney I use kidney support from Tibetan Herbal Balance.

Even though my lupus is still active I don't have to take all the crap from the doctors, hope this helps other people

LDN Plus Immune Supplements
Posted by Candybeagle (Ohio) on 01/12/2018

I have lupus/scleroderma. I went on low dose Naltrexone about a year ago. I find I have very good results with this. Plus I take a lot of supplements. My disease I feel has not progressed as others have. I decided after my forth Rheum. that I was NOT going to go the synthetic drug route. All of which do destruction to organs and the immune system. I found that immune modulating supplements really help.

Borax, ACV, Colostrum, D3, Taurine, Selenium, magnesium, Vit C, Lecithin, Ubiquinol, fermented fish oil, B complex, inhaled peroxide, etc...have all helped me to make this disease bearable.

When ever you go DRs and they say...there is no cure for this...I start asking myself...then why should I take the drugs? At the risk of damaging other parts of my body. My alternative med. Dr.said, You can take the drugs but it will kill you faster than the disease. He was right. I had to have some Depomedrol in my ear for hearing loss, I developed all sorts of side effects. That was enough for me. I found that using the information from this website and other natural forums have proven invaluable to me. Am I cured...no but is my quality of life good...yes and I have had this for 7 years. I feel blessed to have found this site and recommend to my other AI sufferers also. WE who have these diseases know from experience what is helping and by sharing can possibly help others. God Bless all of you who contribute to this site. It's an invaluable resource.

Bentonite Clay, Ted's Remedies
Posted by Therese (Australia New South Wales ) on 04/28/2014 1 posts

Hello Ted,

My name is Therese and I am from Australia, Sydney, and I want to tell you my experience curing (sucking out) my Skin Lupus.

I am 53 years of age and I have had to deal with my skin Lupus for the pass 30 years. Always following Doctors and Specialists advise and directions "that Lupus can not be cured just controlled". All this medications made my skin Lupus very strong and healthy as I become to protect the Lupus and adjust my life style, making the Lupus very comfortable in my environment. So strong and comfortable I made the Lupus it showed up all over my body, especially on the top part of my body and very intense on arms, back and scalp. Wow what a monster I created.

Becoming very depressed and confused I started seeking my own help. I found you on the internet and read about you helping many skin Lupus suffers. I kept reading and realised I maybe able to cure myself.

I started with the Bentonite Clay Powder mixed with water (plastic bowl no metal allowed and all jewellery to be removed from body) using my hands to create a paste which I then placed all over my body including my head, face and sole of my feet. I left the clay on my skin for about 1hour until it started turning to powder or I could not bear the itch no longer I would then lye in a bath for about 1hour. What a itch I created. Had trouble locating the Urea Cream 40%. Started controlling itch with Oil of Cloves (about 10 drops to 1litre of water). Burning feeling for about 15minutes then what a relief, skin felt free for the first time in many years. After about 10 days I stopped using the Oil of Cloves and I used creams for Mature Aged Skin containing Shea Butter to help with itchiness and dryness until my Urea arrive. (Urea 40% costed $50 for 75mg difficultly with shipping to Australia).

I also started taking my supplements one week after I commenced the clay procedure, my supplements are: MSM 3grams daily, Lecithin Granules 10grams daily, Echinacea & Vitamin C 4 Capsules each containing 722mg and 200mg of Vitamin C daily, Citric Acid 10grams with Bio-Carb Soda 1gram mix in water twice daily to drink and Licorice Root Extract 250mg Licorice Root Extract and 225mg of Raw Licorice Powder daily.

I had to learn to identify the Lupus which I was drawing out of my body. Little black dots as small as a pin hole was what I had to look for as this is the sign Lupus coming to surface of the skin. Not in clutters but spread out enough to be identified. Especially notifiable when cream was placed on skin you can see the Lupus on surface. Two to three days later the black dot would be gone.

After 12 days into my treatment and 7 clay treatments I managed to start bringing out the Lupus to the surface (started sucking out) I also managed to bring a lump the size of my palm up my back (right side) and placed itself on the bottom of my neck. I kept monitoring the lump I could not touch the lump as it very hot and sore. The whole time I presumed this lump was part of the Lupus I am trying to suck out.

24 days into my treatment I started getting the Lupus and itch under control. My lump was not getting any smaller and my ears have had a bad discharge for the past 10 days. I went to see my GP (Doctor) and told him of my treatment (my Doctor being African related to my treatment) and discovered I had been trying to handle two seperate issues. The Lupus and the massive infection I brought out of me. The Doctor immediately placed me on "Cephalexin" 500mg 3 times daily to clear up infection. Also had my ears swipe, blood test and ultra sound done on lump that day.

30 days in my treatment my ears have almost cleared up and my lump is much smaller. My Lupus I feel is very close to being all sucked out and my skin is healing well. Still awaiting my Urea cream 40% to arrive. I am looking at keeping my supplements going for another 2months to help my white blood cells to open up and function correctly.

I am due to see my Doctor tomorrow to follow up the result of the lump and monitor the infection which I now have under control. In 2 months time I will be having a blood test to see if the Lupus is still showing in my blood system.

Thank you so much for being on the internet and helping cure my Lupus.

Therese from Australia.

Russian Herbs
Posted by Sam (Portland, Oregon) on 07/03/2012

I am Russian, and we, as the rest of the world, rely on herbs as a first choice of treatment for chronic and acute diseases. Here is a translation from Russian wikipedia about treatment of lupus. Phytotherapy in the treatment of lupus erythematosus: a good supplement to traditional methods of treating lupus will phytotherapy. It will gradually reduce the dosage of drugs, reduce their side effects. For this purpose, use herbal teas, relieving symptoms of inflammation and improve blood circulation. Properly chosen herbal remedies relieve symptoms of an allergic reaction, can help the body to recuperate faster. As preventive measures to avoid the impact of ultraviolet radiation and other treatments, while staying in the open air should be applied on the skin sunscreen. Despite the fact that the disease is chronic, many patients with poorly marked form, are able to maintain their way of life. If this is the main importance is the depth and nature of the lesions of internal organs, especially the dangerous of which is severe and irreversible renal failure leading to death. Modern medicine has a wide range of drugs that help slow the pathological processes that greatly facilitate the negative symptoms, and thus extend the life of man.

For the treatment of lupus herbs should be taken: nettle leaf, bilberry pine, color, tansy, herb St. John's wort, birch leaves, grass, Knotweed, leaf plantain, mother and stepmother, pine, dandelion root, Oregano grass, clover drug, herb yarrow - equallyTwo tablespoons pre-shredded (in a coffee grinder or grinder) collection pour 0.5 liters of boiling water, drain, along with the grass in a thermos, leave overnight. Take 1/3-1/4 cup 3-4 times a day. The course of 1.5-2 months. After 1 month of treatment interruption herbs can be repeated.

Hello, I had suffered with Lupus for two years before dietary changes improved my condition immensely.

First, you must stop drinking alcohol and smoking. It hinders all other things you are doing to improve your health.

Next, change your diet. Start including salmon, fruits, vegetables and green leafy salads. Drink lots of water. And finally add these supplements: vitamin E-100 IUs, Panothenic Acid -500 mgs and Manganese- 50mgs. Take these daily. I also took a strong multi-vitamin called "Stress tabs."

Although I can't get a doctor to say I am "cured." I have gotten them to use the words: "in remission."

My medical doctor said there is now research that vitamin E negatively affects the heart but temporarily it should be fine. (right?)

My Lupus disease was severe with rheumatoid arthritis, hair loss, blood clotting and severe fatigue. Now, you would never know I was ever sick. I am healthier than most women I know my age and younger.

Thank you for this website...you have changed my life for the better.

Ted's Remedies

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.

Sue, would you be able to tell me the brand of Aloe Vera Juice which you used for your lupus?

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

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.

Multiple Remedies
Posted by Ted (Bangkok, Thailand) on 06/03/2008 391 posts

Dear Bret:

My own experience in dealing with lupus after taking certain supplements, pus reduces within matter of hours, condition is noticeably reduced within a week. However, most of the lupus I encountered were in line mostly with the mycoplasma or fungus like organism as being the prime cause because they more responsive to anti-fungal remedies as opposed to anti-viral remedies.

For instance anti-viral remedies, such as zinc and magnesium wasn't so responsive as the antifungal remedies used in borax, chromium, and alkalization. Both antiviral and antifungal remedies were responsive with alkaline remedy.

This means the best remedies I have found so far that worked the best is baking soda, sodium carbonate, and borax in general, while zinc and magnesium were somewhat less responsive. The remedies I mentioned were laid out in details as mentioned.

As to apple cider vinegar, containing polyphenols, etc. alkalization involves alkalizing both extracellular fluids and intracellular fluids. Therefore, sodium bicarbonate and sodium carbonate will resolve the extracellular fluids and intracellular fluids are potassium bicarbonate. The pH in monitoring lupus help is the urinary pH for extracellular fluids and salivary pH for intracellular fluids.

Therefore the theory on the basis of responsiveness to remedy were more in line with fungus, nanoinsects, and mycoplasma more so than virus. The only viral cause I have found were very much due to Morgellon's disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, astenia, and Epstein Barr Virus.

In which case most virus conditions are more responsive to zinc, magnesium, vitamin B complex, but also to alkalizing.

It's difficult to cover all possible cases for different conditions, but for lupus it appears to be one of mycoplasma and fungus like organism.

Ted's Remedies

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 https://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

Black Seed Oil
Posted by Amanda (Algeria) on 05/27/2021

About Black Seed Oil -

I have been living in countries where black seed oil is used quite a bit. They say it is good for everything but death. I take it for general health - a teaspoon first thing in the morning about 5 times per month. I used to take it daily but the local folks said I should take breaks and not take it daily for eternity. I'm not sure why. But try it - 5 mornings, then take a break for a week. See if it makes a difference. It has an acquired taste. I bought some from Amazon once and the flavor was very harsh. I had a hard time taking it. But the oil I've gotten here in Algeria was from Saudi Arabia - Camel brand. It's not too bad tasting. I think it's a good idea to take it with honey and water. Maybe even with juice from half a lemon.

Discoid Lupus
Posted by Chantelle (London, London, London) on 04/11/2012

Hi, Although I haven't personally corresponded with Ted, I would like to share with others the amazing results after 1 week of taking bicarbonate Soda 1/2 teaspoon in half a glass of water 3 times a day, 1/4 of Borax in 1 liter of bottle water, Lysine 1000mg 2 a day with 1000 Vitamin C powder 2 a day, Beta Glucan 1000mg 2 a day, Zinc 15mg with Copper 0.75mg.

At first I put the Bentonite Clay all over my body fanned it dry & washed it off, three times. A few days later, I applied the clay only on the affected areas. I also have been applying Virgin Coconut Oil on my lesions.

Bless Ted, I have suffered significantly over the years and for the first time I believe that my lesions will heal. Prior to taking Ted suggestions from different post the lesion on my cheek felt hard and inflamed, the inflammation on the lesion on my nose is reducing and changing in colour.

I went to Holland & Barratt today, the sales assistant recognized me from my last visit, when I share my experiences with her, she admitted that she was surprised as the last time she saw me the lesion was looking much pinker.

I am in the process of purchasing Potassium Bicarbonate to add to alkalizing and DMSO for old scar.

Will keep you posted on my success, Chantelle

Coconut Oil
Posted by Bibi (Nashville, Tn Usa) on 10/27/2009

I read Ted's posting dated 04/02/2007 under "Lupus" as an ailment. At the end of his posting, he stated that lupus was still rare where he lives (Thailand). My understanding is, there is a large consumption of coconut products in Thailand. I have been using coconut oil (daily), and occasionally consuming coconut milk, coconut juice and other coconut products. As coconut is reportedly antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial, I am wondering if this is a potential cure for lupus.

I was diagnosed in March of 2008 as having lupus (SLE). I took myself off the toxic meds I had been put on in Sept of 2008. Since taking coconut oil and other coconut products, my swelling has subsided and I am doing much better. Of course, it may be just a remission, but I truly believe in the power of coconut. That's my two cents...

Have you read the book Goodbye Lupus? The raw vegan diet with chia seeds for calories/fats/protein and omega 3 put one medical doctor's lupus into remission after having it for 12 years. She was on a kidney transplant list. Last name Goldner. It may work, I hope and pray it does work.

Zinc Oxide and MSM
Posted by Shirley (San Diego, CA & Puerto Vallarata, Mex) on 12/10/2014

I was diagnosed with skin Lupus Feb. 26 2014 by an excellent dermatologist in Puerto Vallarta. This was confirmed in a second opinion in San Diego. Both doctors recommended several skin creams, one "pro topic" was so strong and a steroid I was very very sick, dry mouth, dry heaves in the morning, and loss of appetite. After trying several other creams I found the best thing was zinc oxide! Besides being better, it is so cheap and no prescription needed. My husband suggested this as it is used for diaper rash, and anti-sun protection. Lately my friend gave me a bottle of prepared liquid MSM in a spray bottle, I have used it for about 5 days in the evening, and it seems to have helped. I also noticed, anything stressful in my life leads to more severe rash. I try to take a nap or at least get horizontal for at least 30 min. a day and read. I realize everybody's "body" reacts differently to different things, but another Mexican product Quadraderm, or its generic works much better than any of the US creams I've used. Good luck everybody!
