This is a list of my current treatments for my lupus flare including conventional medicine and alternative explorations…
MEDICAL : Checking in with my lovely local GP at Health First Medical Ballarat, attending the allergy unit clinic at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne, and also seeing a local dermatologist. I will get advice on how to manage my current medications including prednisone (which I am keen to wean off after my current flare) Trying to stay cool and out of the sun. Applying 50+ sunscreen to my face and upper body – and regular sunscreen to the rest of my body.
ALTERNATIVE: Kinesiology sessions in Ballarat, Trialing the eating plan from the GUT DIET designed by Dr. Junger, drinking lots of filtered water and mineral water and herbal tea, taking supplements such as: Fish Oil, Calcium, Vitamin B, Iron, Vitamin D and Probiotics. Trying to rest, which is a bit hard at the moment being on such as high dose of steroids. Take warm baths with salts and QV bath oil. Plus applying QV lotion over my rashes. My mums acupuncturist suggested I apply pure Aloe Vera gel to my skin to calm it, as luck has it I have one being dropped off to the house by a friend. I am interested to see how this compares to the QV product.
I will also continue to meditate daily using the Louise Hay Morning meditation, and aim to eat mostly organic wholefoods plus blend up green smoothies.
