The moringa oleifera tree is now considered by many as a miracle tree for its medicinal benefits. The trees leaves are typically utilized to make moringa extract which includes anti-inflammatory components. Moringa also carries anti-toxins, anti-oxidants, vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids to develop one's wellbeing and immune system. With these perks, the World Health Organization, the European Union and other none government offices in the world appreciate moringa. To combat malnutrition, countries like the Philippines and Africa cultivate moringa trees to be utilized as components for drugs and cosmetic products, and also as products from bulk production and wholesale of its oil and powder form.

One of the most imperative functions of moringa is the truth that it inhibits the COX-2 enzyme which is accountable for swelling and pains in the body. In this case, lupus and the battle in opposition to it comes into the situation. In a nutshell, Lupus erythematossus is an illness with unknown reason which leads to the inflammatory conditions of several parts of the body counting the kidneys, joints, and the skin. Another truth about lupus is that it can influence anybody without thought to their age and sexes, and you can anticipate that things are not going to be pleasant. In addition, the pain of the production of the COX-2 enzyme particularly throughout the constant flare ups could be hard to bear. No one really understands what causes these flare-ups and many sufferers of lupus are continuously on the guard of how to stay away from them. This states that sufferers need to keep away from sunlight and eat foods rich in omega 3. The way of life of the lupus sufferer can be very costly because of all the drugs they need to take to inhibit the disease. Moringa being a cheaper form of alternative medicine and a source of nutrition, aids the sufferers to decrease their bills.

As it contains natural anti-inflammatory properties it is thought to be to be safer to use on the long term than the NSAIDs which can be addicting or can cause some unwanted unwanted side effects. There are lots of side effects to anti lupus drugs can do to a person. For example, it can affect the kidneys, the circulation, the digestive system and many more parts of the body. Apart from being less toxic, taking in moringa is also more effective. Now moringa is made in many forms and to name a few there are moringa leaves and powders which can be acquired in bulk over the Web.

    Examples of stem cells treatments in humans and ongoing researches or trials?
    In addition to succesful or at least a little bit succesful applications currently done by stem cells, I wonder especially examples of treatment conbining gene therapy and stem cells? Could you give me some detailed information and related web site?
    thanks.

      In a breakthrough trial, 15 young patients with newly diagnosed type 1 diabetes were given drugs to suppress their immune systems followed by transfusions of stem cells drawn from their own blood.
      The results show that insulin-dependent diabetics can be freed from reliance on needles by an injection of their own stem cells. The therapy could signal a revolution in the treatment of the condition..
      People with type 1 diabetes have to give themselves regular injections to control blood-sugar levels, as their ability to create the hormone naturally is destroyed by an immune disorder.
      All but two of the volunteers in the trial, details of which are published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), do not need daily insulin injections up to three years after stopping their treatment regimes.

      The initial results from Phase I of the trial were encouraging,“ Raval says. ”Subjects reported feeling better with reductions in chest pain and improved exercise capacity during the early stage of the trial. That’s encouraging to us.“

      Another Adult Stem Cell Breakthrough: Lupus Successes

      Edjuana Ross, now 33, was diagnosed with the autoimmune condition known as systemic lupus erythematosus – lupus for short – soon after graduating from high school. She was one of 48 people who received the experimental therapy – a stem-cell transplant from her own bone marrow.

      Ross said she has been in remission since recovering from her stem cell treatment done in 2003. “I’m just trying to get used to being well, and it’s a very weird feeling,” she said

      Heart Disease – German heart specialist Bodo Eckehard Strauer successfully treated a heart patient, using stem

      cells from the man’s bone marrow. Dr. Stauer said, “Even patients with the most seriously damaged hearts can be

      treated with their own stem cells instead of waiting and hoping on a transplant” (“Stem cell therapy repairs a

      heart,” London Daily Telegraph, August 25, 2001).

      From the research I have done it appears that use of stem cells can be used to treat most illness that affect the Human body.

      Stem Cell & Gene Therapy

      It is my understanding that the use of one’s on stem cells. Represents the possibility of the sickness returning if
      the problem is genetic. Then a combination Of gene therapy & stem cell is just a possibility likely to cure the condition, this dose not mean that it should be used.The third best way to treat the condition would be to remove the defective cells replacing them with healthy ones. Or if you could grow a replacement organ that would be second best. The best being never being sick or injured in the first place. From what I have read as of right now the FDA has not approved any form of gene therapy.

      June 23, 2005 JOHNS HOPKINS SCIENTISTS USE GENE THERAPY TO PREVENT HEART ARRHYTHMIAS FROM STEM CELL TRANSPLANTS
      Two clinical trials since 2002 using transplanted adult stem cells successfully led to tissue regrowth in damaged hearts, but 11 of 18 patients later developed potentially fatal heart rhythm disturbances, including one who required cardiac resuscitation. “It was a potential case of the cure being worse than the disease,” says senior researcher and cardiovascular physiologist Eduardo Marbán, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chief of cardiology at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and its Heart Institute. “It was very discouraging to know that these patients developed arrhythmias, yet not know if it was the muscle stem cells at fault or simply a progression of the patients’ heart disease.”

      Marbán is also editor in chief of the journal Circulation Research, in which the findings will be published online June 23.

      Marbán’s team says it has discovered the source of the arrhythmias to be transplantation of myoblasts, which are adult stem cells taken from patients’ own healthy skeletal muscle. In patients, these myoblasts are injected directly into damaged heart muscle to regrow new tissue. In petri dish studies using these cells, the transplantation process caused an immediate disruption in heart muscle tissue’s regular electrical rhythm, or conductivity, which is necessary to stimulate a regular heart beat.

      Moreover, the Hopkins group was able to minimize arrhythmias dramatically by using gene therapy to replace a key protein, called connexin 43, missing in heart muscle fibers that regrew as a result of the stem cell injections. Connexin 43 makes up the gap junctions between muscle cells, allowing cells to communicate with each other to regularly contract and expand.

    I have pain… and no end in sight.?
    OK, so I’ve got pains I can’t explain… the problem is that I’ve been to countless doctors and have been unable to get a satisfactory diagnosis.

    The pain seems to be everywhere… when I am seated in certain positions… I feel it in my hips and in my mid back. When I walk or stand for any length of time… the pain is lower now… like my lumbar area… and in my neck… I also have numbness and heat in my hands (like arthritis)… tingling in my chest… numbness, tingling and heat in my legs. I have pains in my chest too… though I think that might just be panic and fear over these pains…. I don’t know.

    I’ve been given pain meds and muscle relaxants which work… but then I run out and I’ve been unable to find a doctor who is willing to give me an ongoing prescription.

    I’ve gone to acupuncturists, chiropractors, pain management centers, walk in clinics…. I’ve spent THOUSANDS, all to no avail.

    I have also invested in a Temper-pedic mattress, weekly massage, a hot tub… and still I am plagued by pain.

    Further, as this is impacting both my mood and my ability to think clearly, I’ve spiraled into a deep depression where I feel absolutely certain I am going to die… and soon. The fear of this and worry over my family is keeping me up at night… I find myself looking up my symptoms and finding the causes ranging from anything from a weakened immune system to lung cancer to leukemia. So naturally I’m terrified.

    The other thing is that I’m uninsured and insurable (due to my weight… I’m 315lbs, and the fact that I’m self employed)… and because I’m unable to really exercise…. so it’s getting worse… not better.

    I had a seated MRI in January… I think some of my problems are only clear when I’m standing since that’s when I’m in pain.

    According to the MRI (we didn’t do the lumbar), I have I have at least three blown discs… T-10 to T11, T-11 to T-12 and T-12 to L-1…. that plus macular degeneration of the discs is causing inflammation and osteoarthritis symptoms…. I’m only 38… yet apparently I have the spine of a 70 year old.

    I recently paid $3000 OOP for facet injections… a mixture of steroids and Novocaine… and I’ve gotten some minor relief…. but I’m still in alot of pain and it’s not getting better. My hands are on fire most of the time.

    To be honest, I’m not convinced the pain I’m in is all in my back…. I feel chest pains and hip pains too… I’ve been told it’s all related… but part of me says fibromyalgia, part of me says it’s depression or a midlife crisis… and another part of me thinks it might be cancer, lupus, a heart condition, or even AIDS…. because all sometimes present as inflammation of the joints… and referring pain.

    To make matters worse, I now can’t find a doctor to give me something to help the pain anymore… I’ve been to dozens of clinics…. the prevailing thought is that if it can’t be cured with 30 days worth of flexoril and vicoden… I should be made to suffer.

    The last doctor I went to suggested I lose the weight…. as if that hadn’t been discussed… or as if I could stand up long enough to exercise meaningfully.

    So guys…. what do I do?
    I am dieting… and I’m taking Alli… a great diet pill… it’s working.

    I also do not have any history selling pills or avoiding treatment.

    The pain management clinics in my area are against giving out pain medication for some reason… they all promote alternative remedies… which don’t work.

    How do I find a pain management clinic who is willing to prescribe drugs?

    H1N1 (Swine Flu) explained easily?
    I need and explanation for swine flu in an easy way..
    I researched, but I don’t understand most of it..
    I need:
    Syptoms
    Where to get Vaccine
    What is it
    How death occurs
    etc..
    Can you give me information or give me a website that explains it in a nice way,
    Thank you!

    1. JG

      I’ll try to help as best I can, but I’m not a doctor so please make sure to review the government link below.

      Symptoms: The same as any other flu. You may have some or all of them: Fever, muscle aches & pains, headache, fatigue, congestion, cough. Some folks have vomiting or diarrhea.
      Vaccine: There is no vaccine yet for this particular strain of flu.

      What Is it: A viral organism usually found in pigs. A mutation allowed it to infect humans but essentially, it’s the same as any other flu virus. Antibiotics will not help as they only work on bacterial organisms not viral ones.

      Death: The flu itself does not cause death. Secondary complications are the cause of death, most frequently pneumonia. People with immature or compromised immune systems are at high risk for such; Infants, elderly, those with diabetes, cancer, lupus, etc.

      If you are at high risk and suspect you have the flu, visit with your doctor is in order to be on the safe side. If you are not at high risk, treat the symptoms to ease your discomfort while the flu runs its course, about a week to 10 days. Fever reducers (Motrin, Tylenol, etc), lots of fluids, bed rest, something for congestion & cough, etc. Stay at home until you are fever free for at least 24 hours naturally (no Tylenol, Motrin, ect to help). Until then, you are contagious. If the fever goes above 103, or goes away and then returns, call your doctor. Also if you are not showing any signs of improvement by the one week mark.

      There is also a medicine that won’t cure the flu but can help kick it out of your system sooner. Many docs are giving this to their high risk patients to lower the chances of complications.

      I’ve already had it and it was miserable just as with any other flu. I’m at high risk so had to pay close attention to secondary infections, but I was fine. Both my kids, also high risk, also had it and breezed through it better than I. My husband also had it.

      The reason there’s such panic for this flu is that it’s taken everyone by surprise by its source and its early arrival. Most flues start showing up around September but this one’s been going full blast since summer. No warning to give time to formulate a vaccine, so it swarmed over the population, who being unaware, did not get treatments for secondary infections until too late; hence the higher than usual death toll.

      Don’t ever hesitate to call your doctor if you have questions about this or any other health issue.

    looking for information about holistic healing for lupus.?
    tired of all this medication looking for a more natural way to control this lupus.Please healp

    1. mgunnycappo

      I ditto the answer above by Linda. You can try to cut down on fatty foods and live a healthier way but there is no ‘cure’ for Lupus. Even all the people who try to sell their ‘snake oil’ will admit that it isn’t a cure and hasn’t been evaluated to control the disease. Look closely at the pill bottles, it says so right on them. The problem is that lupus has flares, that is, it comes and goes. So people naturally equate that they took something and it ‘cured’ their Lupus only to have a flare up months or years later. There are hundreds if not thousands of people who want to schlep holistic cures but when put into a corner to provide any research they have none, just allegorical evidence. I know taking all the meds suck but it beats the alternative of not breathing.

    Could this be an HIV false positive?
    I was recently tested and the results came back positive. I am very afraid because I have NEVER been tested for HIV before. Is it possible for you to get HIV from having PROTECTED ORAL? I also have other health issues like high blood pressure and a bulging disc.

    I’ve had STI’s before but I’ve taken medicine for them and was cured of those illnesses.

    I think I may get a second opinion about this result. The only time I have gotten an STI was from unprotected intercourse and each of those individuals tested negative for HIV. Could this possibly be a false positive result?

    1. Red Fairy

      If they weren’t tested as positive they were either a) lying (most women do lie about this sort of thing) b) were tested and the results came back positive but if they had half a brain they would know that HIV is something which should be tested after 6 months. Let me explain about the tests . . .

      HIV-1 is the most common type of HIV and there are four categories; subtypes M, N, O and P. The Elisa test is a test to see whether there are HIV antibodies present, this shows whether there is activity. Since their results were apparently non-rective, then it means they did not active HIV antibodies. HOWEVER HIV antibodies will give false negative results for up to 3-6 months after exposure so people should want to do this again in three months at least. After the Elisa test you should have a confirmatory test (normally the Western Blot) as this will determine which type of antibodies are present.

      Yes there ARE factors which will cause for you to have false positive HIV results and the list is VERY long
      -Anti-carbohydrate antibodies
      -Naturally-occurring antibodies
      -Passive immunization: receipt of gamma globulin or immune globulin (as prophylaxis against infection which contains antibodies)

      -Malaria
      -High levels of circulating immune complexes
      -Hypergammaglobulinemia (high levels of antibodies)

      Psoriasis is a common and chronic condition that usually causes patches of itchy, scaly and sometimes inflamed skin.

      Although they can appear anywhere, these patches — called plaques — are most likely to crop up on your knees, elbows, hands, feet, scalp, or back. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the fingernails and toenails are also affected in about 50% of cases of active psoriasis.

      The symptoms of psoriasis can vary a great deal depending on its severity, ranging from mildly annoying to truly debilitating.

      While the itchiness and pain can be unpleasant, some of the worst effects of psoriasis can be emotional. People with severe psoriasis sometimes are so overwhelmed by their condition and self-conscious of their appearance that they feel isolated and depressed.

      According to the American Academy of Dermatology, up to seven million people in the U.S. have psoriasis. That’s about 2.6% of the population. Unfortunately, there isn’t a cure. But there are many effective treatments that can help keep psoriasis under control.

      What Causes Psoriasis?
      Normally, skin cells are constantly being formed deep beneath the surface of your skin. Over about a month, these cells are pushed up to the surface. This is called cell turnover. The cells eventually die and flake off, revealing new skin cells.

      In people with psoriasis, the skin cells grow too quickly. Cell turnover can happen in a matter of days. Layers of skin build up, forming a whitish, flaky crust. Blood vessels increase flow in an attempt to nourish this skin, which leads to redness and swelling. The classic symptoms of psoriasis are reddened, inflamed skin with a whitish, flaky layer of dead cells on top.

      Although psoriasis usually appears as a skin condition, recent discoveries show that its real cause is a problem with the immune system.

      Your body naturally fights infections and heals injuries with special cells — called white blood cells — that battle viruses or bacteria. Normally, these cells go to the site of infection or injury to help repair wounds and prevent infection. One byproduct of this normal process is inflammation (redness and swelling).

      For reasons that doctors don’t yet understand, the immune systems of people with psoriasis malfunction. One type of white blood cell – the B-cell – begins creating antibodies that destroy normal skin cells. Another type of white blood cell – the T-cell – begins overproducing a substance called cytokines. This overproduction turns off a signal that controls the growth of skin cells.

      So this is why psoriasis is considered an autoimmune disease – your own immune system malfunctions and attacks normal body tissues. Other autoimmune diseases include lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

      Psoriasis of the skin or nails may look like a rash or fungus, but you can’t catch psoriasis from another person. You also can’t give it to anyone else or spread it from one part of your body to another by touch. Experts now know that if psoriasis runs in your family, your chances of developing it are higher.

      Types of Psoriasis
      There are several different types of psoriasis. About 90% of all cases of psoriasis are plaque psoriasis, but other varieties include:

      Guttate psoriasis. This form of psoriasis usually affects children, teenagers, and young adults. It often appears after a bacterial infection, such as strep throat. Its typical symptoms are red, scaly, raindrop-shaped spots on the skin, usually over the abdomen, arms, legs and scalp. It can often clear up on its own without treatment.

      Pustular psoriasis. The typical symptoms of pustular psoriasis are pus-filled blisters on the skin. The blisters usually dry up, turn brown, become scaly and peel off. The lesions usually occur on the hands and feet.

      Erythrodermic psoriasis. Symptoms include red and scaly skin over large areas of the body. This condition can evolve from other forms of psoriasis or be triggered by psoriasis treatment. It can also be triggered by withdrawal from drugs such as corticosteroids (often taken for diseases such as asthma).

      Inverse psoriasis. In people with this condition, dry and bright red patches appear in folds of skin, for instance under the breasts, in the armpits, or on the genitals. This type of psoriasis can be exacerbated by obesity.

    Off most meds for Lupus?
    I was officially diagnosed in 2001 with Lupus by a rheumatologst based on a high ANA titer, joint pain, rash, hair loss and other symptoms. Now my primary care doctor is doubting my lupus diagnosis because my blood work isn’t showing signs of inflammation even though I am dealing with chostochondritis, joint pain, hair loss, photosensitivity, malar rash, extreme fatigue, depression, brain fog, myofascial pain and other symptoms. Because of my blood work, her and my rheumatologist have taken me off of plaquenil and methotrexate, are tapering my prednisone to 0 and just have me on a multitude of depression meds and celebrex and have sent me to a chiropractor. As the prednisone comes down the pain gets worse but they say since my bloodwork shows no signs of inflammation that it isn’t due to the lupus and that the prednisone is not doing anything, it is just something else. I’ve been on plaquenil since 2001 and generally my lupus has been stable except for the past 2 years. They also added MTX about 18mths ago which helped with my joint pain immensly but because I am still having other symptoms they feel the meds are not working and it is safer for me to be off of all meds. I think this is a huge mistake but have any of you been through this. I made an apt with a Lupus specialist in NYC to get a second opinion because I can’t take the pain and fatigue. Am I overeacting to this change? Has anyone been taken off all meds even though symptoms are present and are getting worse?

    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.
