Hi - I am a lupus patient and am in remission now after having received 14 pulses of cyclophosphamide (cytoxan), a breast cancer chemotherapy. I felt as though the quality of my life was very limited after the treatment technically put me into remission. Quantitatively I appeared disease-free (my lab work was fairly normal), but, clinically, I was very fatigued and experienced tremendous joint and muscle pain. It wasn't until I began eating a whole-foods based diet and a specialized, joint-friendly exercise routine I developed using my background in mechanical engineering that I regained my energy, vitality, strength, and health.
Has anyone else experienced such a dramatic, happy turnaround?
