Hi. Like many of you here, I came here thinking I had Lupus. I had most of the symptoms. I obtained full recovery from sun sensitivity, rashy itchy skin, and some stomache problems by eliminating soy from my diet, and topical urine therapy (for fungal elimination). This brought me below the amount of symptoms needed to conclude "lupus".

What I still have is tendon pain. My thoughts are that if soy was causing it, I would be recovering now. That is not the case. My 1 sister of 4 who happens to have been a health nut like me just notified me of her being diagnosed with degenerative joint disease. Enter the common factor: Silicon! But that's not all I found.. Keep reading!

Personal Comments

-I don't know how in the world doctors could think this is a disease that should be cured by drugs when it's growing in spectrum as it is. Everything I research points to poisons which leads to our symptoms! If it were a disease; why is there no fool proof test for it? I took my health into my own hands; and feel I'm recovering. There are many natural cures out there that the pharmaceutical industry will suppress. History demonstrates this with Scurvy, and Pellagra.
