Living Beyond Inflammation, Auto-Immune Disease, Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis

If you are interested, you can read My Story.  I have battled MCTD, an Auto-Immune Disease consisting of a  combination of symptoms from Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Scleraderma.   I have learned to manage my health through exercise, nutrition and  meditation.  I rarely need to take Prednisone.

I will share information and add content about many topics relating to my health, nutrition and lifestyle.  Including the many emotional challenges and set backs along the way.  I may have been diagnosed with Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis and MCTD but I’ve learned to live despite it.

I am LIVING an active lifestyle again. Feel free to share your auto-Immune story on this blog site, whether Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, MCTD, MS, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or other connective tissue disease.

We can share our experiences to help others. I also encourage you to read about how I have achieved optimum Health and Nutrition in my journey Beyond Inflammation, Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis.


  1. I’m treating with biomolecular therapy. I found my RA pain get better but not totally away. They said that i have to wait for 1 and a half month to let it works. I will start to take wheatgrass juice to try. Nowaday, i’m vegetarian and follows part of Gerson therapy(eating program). I will share if it works.
    If anyone has experience about wheatgrass, please share.

  2. PS maybe you already know that lupus is light sensitive. More than about 15 min per day causes flare symptoms so you may need D3 even in summer. Watch your light sensitivity including lowering your indoor bulbs to 40 watts. The new long lasting bulbs including fluorescent ones especially in stores have to be limited exposure. Careful of high uvb exposure. I think it is the uvb Ray that is a danger to lupus. Limit the 10 am to 2 pm high uvb exposure. Sun glasses are important. You can even become overly exposed through some thin t shirts.

  3. PS always wear a hat outside during high uvb exposure times and under fluorescent lights. Even protect your eyes by turning down computer screen brightness and limiting computer time with breaks. That last one goes for everyone!
