    Junk science that has NOT been proven to help in a y way. You will find tons of these kind of things online. We here at WHL have a clear policy about treatments and medication. Only approved treatments and medications are endorsed and discussed here. Not being rude to you, I just get upset because we have had people die that came off of meds to try unproven things.

    We have info about why in the "stickies"

    Just FYI - antiibiotic therapy was partially based on the theory that inflammatory rheumatic diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, scleroderma, polymyositis, spondyloarthropathy and other forms of arthritis are caused by mycoplasmas and other bacterial L forms. (Mycoplasmas are similar to viruses and bacteria, but much smaller.) The theory was that by using low dose antibiotics from the tetracycline family, the treatment would be aimed at the source of the disease-- or what the infectious theory implies is the source of the disease. Since it is now known that this IS NOT the source of the disease (the source is yet unknown), this treatment therapy is no longer widely used. I suspect that somewhere, someone may still be using it. But, as Tgal mentioned, it has not been proven to do anything for Lupus symptoms.

    it is good to know why these ideas do not work. it is only with correct information that we really learn.
