This goes to the person who has the daughter. You say you are open minded. Have you ever tried what the above people mentioned, or are you just saying it won't work for you before you try it. Just curious. I know nothing about lupus, but I do know ignorance. Maybe you have tried these things with your daughter as teh people above have described, in which case I would be sorry it did not work, but the saying "Don't knock it, till you try it comes into play" Anyhow, best of luck for your daughter.
