I've been searching and hoping to find peers within my age group to befriend and talk to living with the same (or similar) disease. Major fatigue, hair loss, joint paint are an upside symptom to organ failure, but still incredibly limiting and difficult to communicate with my friends/peers. I'd love to talk to someone going through this similar journey. Any other young adults battling with Lupus out there?
I am always looking for holistic remedies to try to help with my symptoms from lupus.
My go-to remedies are Turmeric with black pepper, ginger root, D3 and B12 (pill form). I also try to stay away from dairy and eggs, because they have more pro-inflammatory markers than anti-inflammatory markers. I keep my protein levels high, since it is easier to lose protein with Lupus (usually with organic poultry, ONE gluten free bars, Quest low-carb protein chips, etc.). I also try to keep my carbohydrates close to a moderate level, and my fat intake as low as possible, which seems to help eliminate some of my symptoms.
What are some things that you all usually take or withstand from in order to lower your symptoms?
Coping with being a lupie is hard, but the support from my family and coworkers have Made me realize I have a lot to fight for and this won’t bring me down! Thank you for reading!
