The Sun Is My Enemy: One Woman's Victory over Mysterious and Dreaded Disease - Lupus
Book Number: 50862
Beacon Pr June 1976 8vo softcover 167pp very good. The Sun Is My Enemy is the only published first-hand account of a case of lupus. The disease is systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), which the author has had for some 20 years. Fever, dizziness, nausea, edema, and sun-induced rashes were her lot in the early 1950s, but physicians could not decide on a diagnosis until she developed a butterfly rash and classic LE cells. A few years later, by chance, she heard of a Bulgarian doctor who had been successful in treating lupus. She went to Bulgaria, located an old professor who had been using injections of nicotinic acid for this disease. She was started on the program and advised to continue it back in Boston. In a few months, her symptoms disappeared, and she became strong enough to play tennis. Even her severe kidney damage began to repair itself. The doctors were totally surprised and are still by no means convinced that it was not a spontaneous remission!
