Whether you have lupus or not...this is worth reading!!!
(lots on MSG too)
BizBrokerGirl: I have something I want to share with any of you in here who are holistic practitioners...
I have Systemic Lupus Erythematosis (SLE)
And have recently been diagnosed with CNS (Central Nervous System) Lupus
It has attacked muscles, brain, EVERYTHING in my body.
I turned 30 on the 13th of this month.
Two days later I woke up with half of my face paralyzed...
it gets better though...just bear with me... it's very interesting.
We thought maybe it was Bell's Palsy
And it was, but was brought on by Lupus attacking my brain and inflammation around the 7th
And also...I have begun falling down from muscle failure..not MS but from Lupus as well.
This is something I didn't know about Lupus...even though I knew a LOT.
Well, the neuro said I HAD to go on CHEMOTHERAPY if I wanted to live longer than six months.
I am not willing to, but may not need to...
I'm sure you have all probably heard of SAM-e
Well, I began taking it 2 days after paralyzation started
only because I knew it was supposed to help with neurotransmitters
48 hours I saw some improvement
I thought maybe it was getting better on it's own so stopped taking it
I got worse
I started taking it again
I now have almost 80% movement in my face back!!!
This is something even my neuro and rheumies didn't know!
I actually believe I have stumbled on an unknown treatment for Lupus!!!
my case of CNS is very rare... only 5% in ALL Lupus cases.
I didn't do steroids like they said to because my friend who had Lupus died after 6 months
of being on them.
They made her worse...
For 10 years I've been taking ALKA SELTZER for mine...
it takes care of inflammation, pain, relaxes me, takes care of heartburn
AND thins the blood which reduces risk of stroke (It's just carbonated aspirin)
WELL, I had STOPPED taking Alka Seltzer a few weeks ago because I thought
maybe I was taking too much...
I was having ringing in my ears.
LOOKING BACK THIS IS WHEN MY SYMPTOMS GOT WORSE!
Taking aspirin as a natural anti-inflammatory in the form of Alka Seltzer
may be more beneficial than just regular aspirin (for me at least)
But I started taking it again 2 days ago and have seen more improvement!!!
I also want you all to know, that CNS is usually fatal in Lupus but I have a feeling
it may not be for me.
Also, would you believe that there is something called Lupus Psychoses which causes
you to do strange things and bizarre behavior if the CNS is affected as in my case?
This actually explains a LOT of things I didn't know about!
Well, I'm trying.
But I want everyone in here to tell ANYONE who has Lupus about this PLEASE!
I'm building a web site, and have done some lecturing of rheumies in the past on Lupus issue
I am going to really go crazy with this now! It's awesome!
Yes you may use the story and my screen name.
Please include my e-mail and e-mail me where I can see the page.
I am not doing anything else at this time although I'm going to start Candistroy again....
and cleansing formulas, etc.
ALSO something you should know...
I'm doing some research into hidden MSG in foods in relation to auto-immune diseases
and also yeast candidasis (sp?)
and am finding so much that makes sense....
I HAVE STOPPED EATING ALL FOODS WITH ANY FORM I COULD FIND MSG IN
I have a list if anyone wants it e-mail me and I'll let you know when I get it on the site.
Natural Flavors is a PRODUCT containing MSG
and 40 other ingredients have it
Your body also naturally contains ARSENIC
but in too much quantities it can kill you as you know
so can MSG we are finding
Would you believe that the other day I forgot to check ingredients and ate a frozen dinner
and started getting numb all over
checked ingredients and found that it had "natural flavors"
More on MSG
One reason many people view MSG as a hazard to their health is that it
has become so ubiquitous in our food supply. It isn't as if we were
exposed to minute amounts once a year, for most people it's more like
several times a day!!! And the effects are cumulative. It targets the
nervous system, where it does its mischief, until the liver can
metabolize it, that is, break it down.
Let's just look at the three most common symptoms of an MSG reaction -
headache (often severe), numbness, and tingling. The numbness and
tingling can occur anywhere but is most common around the mouth or in
fingers or toes, arms or legs. All of these manifestations represent a
reaction to an irritant of the nerves serving that part of the body. The
ultimate reactions are seizures and anaphylaxsis, with possible death.
Take a moment to study the list of symptoms.
COMMON REACTIONS TO MSG
Immediate or within hours:
migraine and other headaches
numbness or tingling sensations often with flushing of skin
nausea, with or without vomiting
shortness of breath
anxiety and/or panic attacks
heart attack-like symptoms
mental fog and confusion
inability to concentrate (children and adults both)
depression and/or mood swings
behavior disorders (especially in children and teens)
any allergy-type symptoms
bags under the eyes
. . . and more!
REACTIONS OVER TIME:
Retinal deterioration, loss of brain cells and other (mostly neurologic)
Notice how the symptoms reflect the involvement of the nervous system.
Since our nerves run to all parts of the body, the possible symptoms are
diverse and widespread. A firm and objective diagnosis is made more
difficult by the fact that each of those symptoms can also be caused by
other things, they are not unique to having ingested MSG.
The national acceptance of MSG at first blush seems astonishing, then
disappointing and alarming. And the more we learn about the many ways in
which it can harm the human body, the more incredulous we become about
it being allowed at all. The very powerful food industry has embraced it
with total enthusiasm, as it works to their advantage. To help you
understand why, I'll quote from a brochure put out by an activist group,
NoMSG: "MSG 'tricks' your brain into thinking the food you are eating
tastes good. Thus manufacturers can use inferior ingredients to make
their products seem tastier. Inferior products and higher profits
prevail at the expense of consumer health."

Watching out for MSG
I thank you BizBrokerGirl...for letting me put this page up with your
Story....I think we all should be careful to check ingredients
on all of the products we buy...and as consumers...demand
what we want and don't want in our food....Kes
