Q:I have lupus and it is presently in remission. Can you give to me
some advice, including proper eating habits, about how to keep this in remission?
A: Lupus is an autoimmune condition. What you have to do is to
make sure your immune system does not flare up again.
Here is what I suggest:
Consult with your physician about incorporating acupuncture into your treatment; it can help keep your
body in balance and maintain a good immune system.
Make sure any external triggers are eliminated. Maintaining a good balanced diet that is on the
“bland” side can do this. This means that you should avoid spicy, oily, fatty foods, and allergy-prone
foods including dairy, nightshades, chocolate, and possibly wheat. Do not drink sodas or diet drinks. In
general, reduce you intake of sweets.
Eat more of bamboo shoots, cabbage, yams, beets, and leafy green vegetables.
Avoid constipation, as it tends to stagnate toxins in the body. Drink plenty of water. Avoid exposure
to toxic air, and other environmental toxins.
