View Full Version : Lupus???

Hi everybody! I've been too busy to post lately! :D
My MIL has been diagnosed with Lupus and my husband and I are in search of stories of raw healing or curing the disease. I found one woman doing a search on google, but thought I would post here in case there was anyone that knew someone who had gone raw and the Lupus symptoms had gone away. My MIL is about as far from raw as you can get and it's going to be tough getting her to even try raw, but she knows about it, and saw me eating this way when she came to visit over Thanksgiving, so I'm hoping the seed has been planted!

my dad has Lupus...he's not raw...i tell him to go raw all the time though...he did change his diet quite a bit though (for the better) he eats more raw now and not too much meat and stuff...his is in remission right now...he didn't have a flare up for about a year or longer...but he also takes prednisone whenever any symptoms appear...i know that doesn't help you...just thought i'd share...

Sorry. Not to be ignorant, but what is Lupus?

Debra, it's a disease of the blood I think. I don't know much about it (either does the medical community) I think your white blood cells are diminished and many people with Lupus get very sick. The symptoms range from rashes to organ shut down, etc.

Nope, Helen, that's the same one I found. That's ok, hopefully one story will be enough for her to make a change! :)

I know you posted this a while back but I just popped back to the forum and thought you might enjoy reading
I downloaded her e-book and read it - sounds logical. I just have not tried it so I cannot tell you about it. She is very into raw and plant based diet.
Hope this is helpful.

Dr Joel Fuhrman addresses lupus in Eat to Live. It's not 100% raw, but it is vegan and he only advocated cooked once a day. Lupus is an autoimmune disease, and he has his patients off all meds with no symptoms very quickly. I found it easy to do his program raw-it was my preference actually. But since he's an MD an accessible, you might have luck passing along his book or website. You can join and become his patient online. It's expensive, but then he monitors things for you. Worth it of you need it and aren't close to New Jersey.
Catherine, makes my heart feel good to see a post by you. Hang around if you want. We don't bite - anything but raw vegan that is.

Hi - I'm glad to read about Dr. Furman. I haven't heard of him, I just looked him up and it looks great. Thank you for posting it.
I am re-committing to a new diet tomorrow and will look up his book.
Going to start with his smoothy and substitute the soy milk with almond milk.
p.s. thanks Doe for saying hello!

My grandfather died of Lupas. That was way before I knew anything about the raw diet or I would have gotten him to do it. My RVD (raw vegan doctor) treats patients with lupas. I believe he does teleconferencing. I would highly recommend him. His website is www.ecopolitan.com. His name is Dr. Adiel Tel-Oren. Just look at the left of the website and there are the telephone numbers.
