Eat a salad that comprises of tomatoes, carrots, cabbage, lettuce and cucumber, and instead of using mayonnaise for dressing, use curd or lemon instead.

This snack food is actually good at providing as with the needed carbohydrates, while containing only few amount of calories, but with high fiber.

Oranges – When you want to lose weight, make sure to also incorporate some fruits into your diet. The best fruit for those who are trying to lose weight are oranges. Just like with some citrus fruits, oranges are important for our diet since they are loaded with fiber and Vitamin C, as well as some micro nutrients.

Dark Chocolate bar – To stop yourself from eating too much sweets, it is best that you treat yourself sometimes. A 20-gram dark chocolate bar in a day is already enough to fill-in those sweet cravings. Dark chocolate bar is really a good alternative for sweet cravings because it could give you a lot of health benefits while containing only a few amount of calories, as compared to cakes and ice cream.

Baked Potatoes – This might come as a surprise to you, but potatoes are actually fat-free, and they are loaded with carbohydrates. Medium-sized potatoes is great for providing us with potassium and vitamin C and it's also the best source of fiber, not to mention that it only has 100 calories with no fat and cholesterol.

    Any good suggestions on how to alleviate osteoarthritis pain?
    For example – I know someone who has osteoatthritis and joint pain, some due to Lupus. I heard Glucosamine Chondroitin is good? Anything else? (traditional or alternative means – or home remedies )

    1. perryparmer

      take asprin reguraly , or advil to help with the pain. also apply aspercream often to the most painful places.use real warm towels to soak on the skin for 20 minutes 4 times daily. try walking some everyday–if possible. also take vitiman D everyday. drink fluids reguraly and eat foods rich in niacin and magnesium. good luck.

    What is this blister on my lip and how can I get rid of it?
    A couple months ago I got what looks like a blister on the inside of my lower lip. It occasionally comes close to going away. I can still feel it but it is not really visible. When I eat hot foods or things with lots of acid in them or get stressed it gets inflamed. I have seen my doctor and he recommended seeing a dermatologist but I’m wondering if there is anything I can do to remedy this or if anyone has had something similar before going. I am 100% certain it is not herpes or any sort of STD… I was tested when i went to see the doctor but all my tests came back negative and the doctor also said that it does not look at all like herpes. Also, the “blister” or bump does not hurt or itch or anything, it is just unsightly. It looks like a half cm bump that is either white or normal “lip” tone. I tried popping it thinking it was a blister and nothing came out. What gives?

      well if it is on the outside, it probablly is caused by the herpes virus, and not the STD one. Almost everyone has it. Just having had chicken pox or shingles as a child puts the virus in your body. i get them just from going in the sun too much. they are small, and dont hurt, unless they get dry and cracked. I use a little abriva (13.00) and they get rid of them quickly. It dosent make you dirty. its just a little virus most people carry. its not the same herpes that people have on their genitles. if inside your mouth, they are canker sores or still the herpes, Im ot sure but they could be one in the same. There are other causes, but if your basically healthy, you have no worries. Lupus would be one, but It seems your male, young, and women make up 90% of Lupus paitents, another is maybe your allergic to somthing and dont know it.

    I feel weak and shaky if I don’t eat and almost never have energy.. What could be wrong with me?
    I take the Depo shot and diabetes, anemia, and lupus runs in the family.

    1. Darkie

      Everybody gets weak when they do not eat. You need energy and you get energy through calorie intake when you eat food. EAT and you will be fine, If there are more symptoms see a doctor and he or she will tell you what is going on with you.

    How can i stay healthy when taking an antibiotic for a long time?
    My doctor prescribed me tetracycline for my acne and he said i’ll have to be on it for a while until my acne “burns itself out”.I looked online at the side effects and one serious one is drug induced lupus and a weak immune system.It says if you take multivitamins then it will make the medication less effective.So how can i boost my immune system and stay healthy while on this medication for a period of time without lessening its effectiveness?Thanx.

    1. Greatmommy

      Is tetracycline all they could come up with? It burns out your teeth too, they say.
      I didn’t think they used that anymore.
      If you are going to take it, eat healthy food. Fruit and vegetable juicing would be a good way to load yourself with what’s good for you.
      Also, anytime being on an antibiotic, I would take in lots and lot of dairy. Antibiotics clear out systems of all bacteria, not only bad, but good bacteria as well. With females that prevails in a very itchy way. I don’t know how males experience it but the theory behind it is still the same.

    Is there any natural herbs that I can take to control my Lupus? Also to get rid of discoid Lupus naturally?
    Is their a way that I can naturally control my lupus with out taking a great deal of medication. Also I have discoid lupus on my face, can something like shea butter help

    1. Linda R

      No. It is not normal for your immune system to attack you. That’s what happens in lupus.

      Lupus symptoms, whether in the skin or the body, are controlled when the overactive and confused immune system is suppressed. Shea butter moisturizes. Period.

      You have a choice. You can run around looking for the magic “natural” bullet or you can bite the bullet and work with your doctors.

      By the way, hemlock and arsenic are quite natural, but they can kill you. I have systemic lupus. Early on, I was sure there was some “natural cure” out there.

      I take very few meds now, despite the fact that I had severe organ involvement (heart, lungs, bone marrow, kidneys). I am 98% vegetarian, severely limit processed foods, do not eat fast foods or junk foods, exercise daily, practice yoga and meditation AND follow the treatment regimen that my doctor and I have worked out.

    What are the health benefits of Flaxseed Oil?
    I take flaxseed oil everyday. I want to know all of the benefits, and what foods I should be eating when taking these vitamins.
    Mr. Answer…Im not really sure what you mean?

    1. happyjack

      Flaxseed oil is a rich source of alpha linoleic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid. Alpha linoleic acid is converted into DHA (docosahexanoic acid) and EPA ( eicosapentaenoic acid). It is used to reduce inflammation, promote healty circulation and healthy skin, hair and nails: as well as to improve constipation. It is also used for Asthma, Attention Deficit Disorder, Bipolar disorder, cancer, cardiovascular disease, copd, depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglycerides, IBS, Lupus, osteoporosis, preeclampsia pregnancy, and schizophrenia.
      Too much flaxseed oil can cause diarrhea. Men with prostate cancer should avoid supplemantation with flaxseed oil and use ground seeds instead. Flaxseed ooil has a mild blood thinning effect, so check with dr. if on blood thinning meds.
      Usual dosage is 1-2 tbsp a day or 8-12 capsules a day

    What is a good diet regimen for a lupus patient to follow? What foods should be avoided?
    I would like to know what foods to stay away from and what foods may help people diagnosed with autoimmune diseases. What is a good diet regimen for this diagnosis? Are there any foods that are harmful or that should be totally avoided by lupus patients?

    1. Linda R

      Lupus patients should avoid alfalfa sprouts. They stimulate the immune system, just the opposite of what we need.

      Outside of that, here are some basic guidelines that work for me.

      1. Eat lots, and I mean lots, of fresh fruits and vegetables
      2. Limit or eliminate animal fat. We have a high rate of premature atherosclerosis. A healthy heart diet is essential.
      3. Limit processed foods
      4. Eat plenty of fiber (#1 will accomplish that)
      5. Get regular mild to moderat exercise-it improves immune function, lubricates joints and elevates mood. Ask your rheumy what would be good for you.
      6. Do not take echinacea or goldenseal. They also stimulate immune system.
      7. Some lupus patients find wheat gluten to be inflammatory, but many of us have no problem with it.
      8. If you can’t pronounce the ingredients, don’t put it in your mouth.
      9. Fish oil is anti-inflammatory. You can eat cold water fish like salmon to get that. A small amount of nuts is good, too.
      10. Make sure you get plenty of calcium. Our meds make us prone to osteoporosis. Exercise helps with that, too.

    What foods can help you lose weight during menopause?
    I am 50 years old and do not eat fried foods or any fattening foods yet I cannot seem to lose weight. I lost 50 pounds and am now stuck. I still need to lose about that much more. What are the best foods to help lose weight and what should I avoid? I have lupus and cannot do strenous exercise.

    1. umpyamy

      Check out webMD. Lots of research has been done into the metabolism boosting qualities in green tea. Also soy products, like tofu, soy milk, etc. are known to soothe the less pleasant effects of menopause.
