Topic

We're happy to welcome back Dr. Shannyn Fowl from the Journey of Health Medical Clinic, as she shares some important insights for us on naturopathic approaches to Lupus.

Goals of managing or treating someone with lupus really depend a lot on the individual.  Not only does each person with Lupus or autoimmune disease have different experiences and symptoms but they have different ideas of what they want to accomplish in their health.  Naturopathic Medicine takes this into consideration by focusing on the individual and offering options that make the most sense for them.  Listen in and hear an approach that includes treating the individual, finding the cause, and using nature as medicine whenever possible.
