Dr. Anju Mathur is a Los Angeles Lupus specialist that uses her Back to Wellness Program to help patients that are suffering from the effects of lupus to overcome their conditions and regain their health. As a part of her Back to Wellness Program, Dr. Anju Mathur will check the functions of many different bodily systems, such as the immune, cardiovascular, hormonal, and nervous system, which may all be involved in the autoimmune disorder of lupus. Upon analyzing these different systems and running the appropriate tests, she will then determine which therapies in her Back to Wellness Program can help to balance an individual’s specific needs. Dr. Mathur specializes in choosing therapies for patients that can augment their health and overcome the symptoms and consequences of Lupus. Through the Back to Wellness Program, many patients suffering with this disease have been able to improve their symptoms and prevent further complications.
What is Lupus? Lupus can come on suddenly, or the symptoms can appear over time and seem vague or disconnected. The lupus symptoms are sporadic, with most people experiencing “flare ups” as well as periods without symptoms or any other signs of the disease. Diagnosing lupus can be difficult due to the symptoms of lupus being closely related to other illnesses and it’s similarity to other autoimmune diseases. A common indicator of lupus is a rash across the nose and on both cheeks that resembles a butterfly, though not all of those suffering from lupus have it.
Other symptoms of lupus may include:
- Skin Rashes
- Kidney Problems
- Seizures & Psychosis
- Chest Pain
- Skin Lesions From Sun Exposure
- Mouth Sores
- Joint Pain, Stiffness, or Swelling
- Sun Intolerance
- Dry Eyes
There is no cure for lupus and most treatments are intended to decrease the occurrence of flare-ups with autoimmune suppressing drugs. This is where Angel Longevity Medical Center of Los Angeles is different. Dr. Mathur’s approach as an integrative functional medical clinic is one of a medical detective. She gathers all the clues of the patient’s past through extensive personal and family histories and present lifestyle, potential toxins in their environment, social life, stress level, relationships, diet, workout regimen, sleep habits, and symptoms. Armed with this information, and all appropriate lab tests Dr. Mathur strives to uncover how and why the patient’s body is not functioning well.
No two cases are alike, which is why Dr. Mathur’s Back to Wellness Program makes sure that no two treatments are alike. Dr. Mathur’s Back to Wellness Program selects therapies that will help the different facets of the disease, and this is because the illness can differ in severity, location, and frequency of flare-ups. Therapies that are a part of San Fernando Valley Lupus specialist, Dr. Mathur’s Back to Wellness Program, such as IV Nutrient Therapy can allow the body to get the nutrition it needs to support a healthy immune system and overcome the symptoms. Phospholipid Exchange Therapy can detoxify the body at a cellular level, and it may cleanse the cells of systemic toxins to improve overall organ function. Chelation Therapy can also help to detoxify the body, which may improve immune system function and organ health.
Patients do not have to accept their condition because there is hope for autoimmune disorders. Dr. Anju Mathur offers very personalized and tailored programs to eliminate the cause of the problem and bring patients back to health. Some common autoimmune disorders Dr. Mathur specializes in are Grave’s Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
