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
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.
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...
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/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.
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
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.

Sue, would you be able to tell me the brand of Aloe Vera Juice which you used for your lupus?
Bentonite Clay, Ted's Remedies
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
I have been taking 1/2 tsp baking soda in an 8 ounce glass of water on an empty stomach as part of Ted's Remedies for Lupus. My question is: How long after drinking the mixture may I eat? PS: So far the remedy I found here has HELPED my LUPUS symptoms tremendously! Still on the mend, but after one full week, I have more energy during the day. I am hopeful that the other symptoms will abate as well. Thanks to Ted & everyone who wrote in with their feedback... very helpful.
Just be sure to use baking soda that is "aluminum free". You can find this at health food stores.
EC: All baking soda (aka sodium bicarbonate) is aluminum free. This was a marketing ploy from one company in particular to spread false information on the internet about baking soda.
It is baking POWDER that contains aluminum.
My prayers are with you and hope your daughter gets well really soon. I know it must be really difficult for your daughter and your family and as a parent you are doing your best.
My 11 year old daughter has been diagnosed with Lupus/Crohns last year. Doctors cannot pinpoint whether it is crohns or lupus since she had all the symptoms related to crohns and lupus both.
We started her on SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) this year since Feb 2018. She has weaned off all her medication since Feb 2018 except proguanil which is given to Malaria patients. However this medication has shown good benefits with Lupus also.
Since Mar 2018 we are doing her blood test every 2 months and she is 100 % normal. All her results are coming as normal. I think the major benefit is because of SCD diet. You can google this to know more about SCD. I'm not sure whether it will help your daughter or please look into that.
Hope your daughter get well soon. Take care.
I am so sorry - I am sure it is hard to sleep when you see your daughter suffer so much.
The thing that come to mind as I read your post that I would be considering if this were my daughter would be charcoal poultices over the kidney area at night.
Here is an interesting study about the use of charcoal in kidney disease and its ability to decrease creatinine levels. Now, the specific kidney disease, age of patient and way of administering charcoal are different in this study, but it does make me thing that charcoal would be something to consider. Especially since external poultices should not come with interactions with any medications.
And here is a story about a child with vasculitis on the brain with suspected lupus that was healed with charcoal. (Look about 1/5 of the way down the page.)
Some other things to consider would be nettle tea as a blood purifier; we have seen it do some wonderful things for children in our house. But I would make sure with the doctor that that was okay.
Please do keep us posted. I am praying for her!

Zinc Oxide and MSM
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!
Natural medicine for lupus. I have a friend who was diagnosed with lupus 36 yrs ago developed kidney cancer and given 6 months to live. He went to natural, herbal medicine and here 36 yrs later still dealing w/ certain symtoms but still at 73 working and living faily normal life cancer gone. I do believe in holistic medicine. I know of more cases of lupus w/ same result.
To the person with the photosensitivity problem, it looks like your body is highly depleted of vitamin b12. Please note that your body does not absorb vitamin b12 and vitamin d3 unless you have magnesium and your body does not absorb magnesium unless you have potassium. So you will have to take b12, magnesium and potassium in order to conquer a b12 deficiency. Hope this helps.
Jacquelyn's Lupus Remedies
Yes, most suggestions sound reasonable. However, two major remedies deserved mentioned, one is a baking soda with malic acid, which is reacted to be malate, such as 500 mg of malic acid with baking soda, say 1000 mg, will help chronic fatigue to some extent, but magnesium is needed too, such as 500 mg to 1000 mg of magnesium chloride. Generally an inflammed thyroid in a lupus is a fungus condition responsible. I have been lately experimenting with a newer remedy to rid of that inflammed which can be applied two ways to reduce the inflammation. A 10% solution of ammonium chloride applied to the throat areas perhaps mixed with a little 5% of milk of magnesia, or a stronger 10% solution of ammonium bicarbonate. It should be noted that a lupus may not observe themselve but I can see improvement when baking soda and borax was supplement over the course of a week, unknown to them since its positive effect while not immediate were very clear. Hence baking soda and borax still remains the major remedy. The other issue is the weakness and lack of energy can be restored mostly with 5-10 drops of 3% H2O2. Steaks and overcooked meat even organic were problematic still. However, most foods, if organic can't be found can be neutralized by 90% by soaking in a weak solution of hydrogen peroxide, such as 0.5% H2O2 soaking for roughly 5 minutes. The meat may pale in a few case from the peroxide, but it does neutralize insecticides and antibiotics. As well as hydrogen peroxide usually 5-10 drops will have an effect in lifting the energy for 2-3 hours, and hence is taken every 2-3 hours. Too much hydrogen peroxide taken too long may deplete vitamin C, and caused headaches and vitamin C sodium ascorbate is often taken at 1000 mg a day, to balance off this.
Nearly every lupus sufferers I have found were all exposed to heavy metals of some kind, either mercury amalgam, vaccines mercury from Gulf War Syndrome vaccines used, from heavy metals in faulty showers, old faucets, old metal water filter and even one person was working in metal working and another was a metal inspector, or another lived near ships where water has high heavy metals. Hence chlorella and spirulina helps and forms the foundation for lupus.
The newer remedy against this fungus lupus, is the ammonium chloride. Is applied to throat area at 10% solution to reduce inflammation. In my opinion a low dose ammonium chloride such as 1/16 teaspoon or 1/10 teaspoon ammonium chloride dissolved in 1 glass of water is drank at only 1/3 of that and then later at 1/3 and finally in evening at 1/3 or whatever left over. This is a fairly low dose to killing off the fungus. The ammonium chloride is a diuretic, clears fungus from the system, and may cause warming initially as the body detox and should clear up some of the skin problem. In any event application on the thryoid externally is one way to do it, although a mild approach will reduce inflammation s thyroid can produce normally without excess reliance on hormone replacelement. In excess the body become to dependent and cause a thyroid shutdown, which can last for days in some cases, even a natural Amour thyroid.
Another remedy that seems to digest certain kinds of lupus is the bloodroot tincture. The remedy is 2-6 drops of bloodroot tincture in ethanol (not methanol) dissolved in 1/2 glass of water three times a day. The bloodroot tincture will digest certain lupus that caused inflammation and most notably reduce up to 90% of pain in a couple of cases I encountered.
If there is anything I like to add, I would just say the important remedy is always borax, hydrogen peroxide, bloodroot tincture, baking soda, potassium citrate (as used in alkalizing remedies) chlorella and spirulina and magnesium. Iodine drops helps thyroid functions, as in lugols solution for example. The newest remedy I am updating here is the ammonium chloride or ammonium bicarbonate to reduce glandular inflammation so that once inflammation isn't there, the glandular functions can work, especially when taken at very small amount internally can turn on many glandular functions as is borax. In fact the antifungal that neutralize fungus are the borax and ammonium chloride. Hydrogen peroxide helps, but it's effect are short term lasting a couple of hours on energy. It clears the blood for all three - namely borax, ammonium chloride and hydrogen peroxide, not taken at the same time, of course. The hydrogen peroxide drops is taken separately. The ammonium is divided in three dose, and borax is in dirnking water. But a borax and hydrogen peroxide can be combined in practice. For example, in one liter of water 30 drops of 3% H2O2 (some like 20 drops) plus 1/8 teaspoon of borax (or 1/4 depending on the size and the results).
A xylitol is an interesting one that deserves mentioned in itself. If the body is properly alkalize the xylitol will prevent further infection, but if taken alone leads to pain, if not propearly alkalized. It helps reduce infection by preventing attachment. So it's a two edge sword. I used them for urinary tract infection.
Sea salt is an important remedy in lupus and the dose is between 1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon per glass. Preferable dose is likely to be closer to 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon per day. The dose can also be mixed in the borax/hydrogen peroxide in the drinking water also. So we can call this borax/hydrogen peroxide/sea salt in one liter of drinking water solution.
Diet control are important to avoid a flare up, especially white sugar, honey, white flour and overcooked meats, and steaks. Fish and vegetables are generally safer and yes, millet and brown rice are generally the best grains, but taken not too much.
A supporting remedy not mentioned but support liver function is granulated lecithin taken at one tablespoon a day which reduces liver congestion and also help reduce blood sugar. Drinking plenty of water during meals prevent blood sugar spikes that normally result in inflammation during lunch that occurs around afternoon. Thus if liquids were driank before during and after meal, the inflammation would redusce as liquies would reduce the blood sugar spikes that caused the inflammation and weakness that occured after meals.
A good pH balance needs potassium also, not just baking soda and muscle pain may be most helpful with the magnesium.
Margaret's Lupus Remedies
Just wanted to share my story on lupus. In Dec of 2010 I went to see a intergrated doctor. Found my gluten numbers really high along with antibodies for lupus. Went gluten free and in only 2 months my lupus antibodies were gone! Just had a follow up visit and my antibodies are still gone. I say go gluten free. I also had my Vit D checked along with b12 and iron. If you live near a intergrated doctor I would recommend going. Good luck to all out there, Sherry
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.
I was diagnosed w/SLE at 12. I'm 43 now and 20+ years on hemodialysis. No kidney function,transplant didn't work,EVER. Chems A+. Still have some sort of autoimmune disease. unknown. Going gluten free,etc. I think diet, environment, bad DNA caused my lupus. They plugged me full of prednisone, which caused ESRD--dialysis. Now I'm stuck because my kidneys don't exist, and I'm trying to fight off another autoimmune. Ted, you're a genius. I hate American Medicine and their 'pimps'. ADVICE: Get lupus before it gets your organs--dialysis, transplant,death.
