Unfortunately, I have been suffering from Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and a clotting disorder since 2009 and before then, I was perfectly healthy. I have tried all sorts of treatment, plenty that have not worked. Methotrexate which put me in the hospital with Pancreatitis, plaquenil, pain medication after pain medication, cymbalta which only helped for a month and then suddenly stopped working. I'm exhausted of this trial and error and would like some feed back of what others have used and has helped them.

I do live a very healthy lifestyle and active when my body allows me to, but I am considering limiting myself to a strict diet of shakes, smoothies, and whole healthy foods. Have any of you done so and has it helped?

I just want my inflammation to go down so I don't ache badly, daily and do not need to take large amounts of pain medication just to feel normal.

Any feed back would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all!
