Hello all! I'm a woman in my early thirties who's been actively reading threads here for years, finally breaking down for some unknown reason and creating a username today.

About a decade ago, I was diagnosed with several serious autoimmune diseases which have all but taken over my existence. Sadly, I've been up and down the medical roads, to no avail. Thus, I'm extremely interested in alternative healing, theories about TPTB "hiding" cures, etc.

Other interests include the supernatural, particularly ghosts and other inexplicable things, as well as conspiracy theories.

I'm looking forward to chatting with you!

I urge you to stay away from "alternative healing" because you could only gain a placebo-effect from them. If your medical condition requires real treatment, things will just get a lot worse a lot quicker if you rely on something phony.
The TPTB is not hiding cures, because there is no TPTB.
Something else that does not exist are ghosts.

Hi snarkysheep!

From a slightly different slant, I would like to welcome you with a more personal message than I usually place in this introduction forum. I too have health issues ( though not the same as yours ) and I have honestly found the community here at ATS to be some of the best medicine there is. One of my ailments causes constant and pretty extreme pain and when I am on ATS that pain is almost always much diminished. Enough so that two aspirin can keep me comfortable where, before, narcotics remedies were needed.

It is my sincere hope that being here will also help to distract you enough that you'll garner some relief from being part of our family as well.

A very sincere welcome to you.

Welcome, hope you enjoy all you find here and in response to this, I saw a "ghost personally, he was an elderly man, and looked totally like a real person for the few minuets he spent looking at me and my sisters standing in bright light, he wore a suit with vest from like the 1800's and had a cane in one hand.

I also cured myself of Lyme disease as I had no money or insurance. I used the salt cure after years of symptoms and going downhill badly till i could hardly function from pain, I am totally symptom free for a year now. I agree it could be dangerous using some of these alliterative cures but I had little choice.

There are many here with similar ailments. I think you will find plenty of information, take it with a grain of salt please. I'm sure it is all sincerely given, but may not be what you need. Do additional research before you try things. I wish you absolutely the best. Welcome to the family!

As far as autoimmune diseases goes... I would urge you to look into diet. By and large, we eat crap and get lousy dietary advice from doctors and most RD's.
I suggest looking into the GAP diet. Google it and you'll find their website. Heal you gut and heal your body. There may be a GAP certified practitioner near you that can help. While looking in to this, I would stop eating all processed foods. Stop eating grains, and stop eating sugar. Eat vegetables, berries, some fruit, some fish (oily fish like salmon) and grass fed beef. Keep in mind that grocery store beef is fed grains and soy, not grass like ruminants are supposed to eat.
I've done 6 years of reading about diet. I cured my blood sugar problem. I stopped eating all grains 6 years ago.

There's no doubt in my mind that modern wheat isn't fit for human consumption.

Hey welcome!

Take everything on ATS with a grain of salt, unless it has factual information.


Auto-immune? Arthritis? i use to have inflammation in my knuckles and finger joints, but it seems, change in diet and not using your muscles extensively(like moving heavy items, digging, etc over duration of hours) will reduce it, i have been free of it for 8 months now.

Thanks for your responses, everyone!

Yes, I totally understand about quack diets and "miracle cures" and all that -- no worries, I'm not about to do anything crazy! But, from my perspective, try to understand what it's like to have your entire decade of twenties and now thirties almost totally robbed from you, at the very least completely altered. Then, you go to nationally and world-renowned specialists all over the country, only to be told, "Sorry, there's nothing we can do." Of course you get a bit desperate, and you start looking for all the alternatives, y'know?

On another note, I am a first-generation American, as my family is made of recent immigrants (all legal, in case it matters to you...) So my upbringing may be a bit different than others who've been in the country longer. One of the things my family has always discussed is more of a reliance on natural products, both regular food (I was raised to cook everything from scratch for better health) as well as the notion that you can find a cure for everything within nature (however, finding it may often be a bit of a problem, if it's an uncommon ailment...) So that's a large basis between my adamance on this notion.

As for ghosts, my feeling has always been that there are many things in this world that we do not understand -- take, for instance, the percentage of dark matter vs. light! I really think that we're flattering ourselves if we think we've got it all figured out. Until we have definite proof there are no ghosts or related things, we can't rule the possibility out.
