Prayers up.

I have a friend who suffers from this. One thing that has apparently helped a lot is to work hard at avoiding glutens in her diet. Your friend might benefit from this as well. (See, e.g., here.)

Many many prayers for Ana. May the doctors relieve her pain, and use all their modern knowledge to treat the underlying disease.

There is an online support group for scleraderma patients...it can be Googled.

God bless Ana, and please, lord, take away her pain and grant her peace of mind. Amen.

Yes, I've heard of great success with diet change. Actually, I know there are quite a few autoimmune diseases that are being studied with diet as a main factor in recovery. I don't know why more doctors don't investigate this angle.

"I know there are quite a few autoimmune diseases that are being studied with diet as a main factor in recovery. I don't know why more doctors don't investigate this angle."

The reason why doctors don't investigate diet as a key to recovery is because they aren't taught it. Medical schools are largely funded by the pharmaceuticals, and if it can't be patented they don't want to know about it.

Prayer: "Father, have mercy on Your daughter Ana and take away this pain. Let her find the healing that she needs, and if it has to do with what she is eating as has been suggested in this thread, lead her to the diet that You will use to bring her out of this. In Jesus Name we pray, Amen."

thank you very much for your prayers. My friend is home from the hospital but without any real relief. She sees her own doctor hopefully tomorrow. I will tell her about the support group and about looking into diet changes. Thank you all soooo much.

Prayers up here in Jesus' Name for your friend, for relief from her pain, and also for guidance to diet or whatever it may be that will help to bring a cure, not just a suppression of the symptoms. May she have abundant grace and peace in the midst of all of this.

Heavenly Father, we return to thank You that Ana was able to return home from the hospital ... may she have ease from her pain this night, O Lord, that she might be refreshed from her trials. May Your healing hand rest mightily upon her as she seeks treatment ... put before her all that she needs to overcome this disease. Grant wisdom and judgment to her medical team, that they might be a means of Your healing. Let not Ana be discouraged, but may she find comfort in Your Presence and assurance in Your Promises, for it's in the Name of Jesus, we pray, Amen ...

May God hold Ana close to Him now and guide those who care for her. May He comfort her family and friends and give them peace and strength. May He restore her to health in His service, in Jesus' name.

I have not heard anything new today but I can not tell you how much I appreciate your prayers for Ana and I know that when I get to talk to her it will be a comfort to her as well.


Thank you all.

Arriving late to this thread....my heartfelt prayers join those of the others. May God bless and guide the hands that care for Ana, and may He grant them wisdom to make the best decisions for this young lady. May our prayers be a small comfort to her, and may she feel the Lord's presence around her and allow Him to hold her close.

Update:

Ana is doing much better today. She went to our church prayer meeting and the Lord really touched her. Thank you for joining in prayer with me for Ana. God Bless you all and please, keep praying for Ana. We are believing for a complete healing from this disease.
