Lupus, Gluten and Hypo Allergenic Diet Research (A Repost)

11/29/2011 Another link that I found today on the subject, check the end of the articles medical references too if you want to read further and delve deeper!

Want a book to read to learn more (I found it at my local library)....has the story of how Dr. Wright "cured" 100 cases of Lupus completely with diet change (from reading the book a long while ago I believe it was a diet free from gluten, dairy and beef--not sure if there were more foods eliminated I will request the book to take a look again- he also gave high doses of supplements/vitamins)...worth a look! Knowledge is power!

The rest of this is from an older blog post (an oldie but a goodie) Please read!

Someone had posted a website link on my blog a while back and I was just re-reading it the other day. The rest of this post is from someone else. Below is this person's opinion and research. Read on below. I am doing more research on Dr. Reading and Dr. Wright for myself.

A little bit more on Lupus...

There are actually many cause and many approach towards treatment of Lupus depending on how you look at it. If the treatment is to prevent hair loss caused by lupus, treatment with prednisone might stop hair loss. There is a story of an Australian doctor who successfully treated lupus based on gluten allergies which was to avoid all grains except corn and rice. Here is some information:

Dr Reading, an Australian doctor who cured a hundred Lupus [SLE] patients by [among other things] taking them off all grains except RICE and CORN. Dr Wright discussed the connection between a Lancet article recently reporting a link between the genetic marker HLA-B8 and 17 diseases with what he had learned from Dr Reading. All but one of the 17 diseases [Celiac Disease] arethought to be autoimmune diseases. Dr Wright deduced that if dietary restriction of gluten cured the one gene-linked disease known to have an external cause that perhaps all of the gene-linked diseases had an external cause and that it might just be gluten sensitivity!

I would bet on it!!

Here is the list of the diseases linked to the gene that might respond to restriction of gluten containing foods. My advice is that ANY patient with one of the following diagnoses be taken off ALL grain and ALL dairy products until their involvement is ruled out.

Addison's Disease

Autoimmune hemolytic anemia

Celiac disease

Childhood asthma

Chronic autoimmune hepatitis

Dermatitis herpetiformis

Grave's disease

Insulin dependent (type 1) Diabetes mellitus

Lupus erythematosis

Myesthenia gravis

Pernicious anemia [100% also suffer total lack of

stomach acid]

Polymyalgia rheumatica


Sjogren's syndrome


Ulcerative colitis


Dr Wright recommends the tTG test for gluten/gliadin sensitivity, a measure of tissue transglutaminase and supposedly the most sensitive test now available. Information from a website is included below for your convenience.

Other tests are the endomysial antibody test [EMA] for short lived antibodies and the antigliadin antibody [AGA] test for the longer lived IgA and IgG antibodies.

Be sure the patient has consumed gluten containing foods right up until test day or the tests might show negative even in gluten sensitive people.

Again there is a story of someone who was "cured" of lupus taking a common medicine available in most pharmacy stores, Calorad.

Some people are allergic to certain drugs and environmental toxins. So stopping certain medications, or drugs might help. Common drugs that induced lupus are procainamide (Pronestyl) hydralazine (Apresoline) quinidine (Quinaglute). Also, its been known that taking nasal vaccines causes lupus to be much worse. Discontinuation of vaccines might also be helpful.

Personally, I suspect that many authorities know what causes lupus and its cures, but they are keeping it mum and for a good reason. There has been many stories I hear of people taking vaccinations such as polio and hepatitis A for example then suddenly wham, lupus! I hear that taking high dose steroids for example cured lupus. Hormone therapy such as prednisone were also helpful.

Let me conclude about treatment with Lupus to make it simple: The main cause of lupus is nucleic acid deficiency. Supplementation with RNA/DNA, liquid protein supplements (e.g. calorad) and Sulfur rich foods and sulfur supplements (MSM, Brewer's Yeast, Selenium) and cofactors for DNA synthesis such as vitamin B complex should help along with TMG (Trimethyglycine).

Finally avoidance of gluten containing foods such as white flour and wheat, sugar, overcooked meats, drug medications, and vaccine should eliminate most of the lupus conditions. Short term treatments such as steroids and prednisone might be helpful. Detoxification is necessary in first stages such as liver detoxification, and reduction heavy metal toxicity by using EDTA for example are the basics. Elimination of environmental toxins is also important. If you just follow this email alone, most of the conditions of Lupus should be alleviated."
