Project Description

Charlotta spent 9 years battling lupus. High dosages of multiple drugs caused heart, kidney and liver problems and therefore were no longer a sustainable option. Seeing specialists on both coasts and faced with corrective eye surgery as well as infertility, she reached out to Mymee.

Through data-driven coaching using the Mymee platform underlying causes were identified and Charlotta gained an understanding of how her behavior influenced her condition enabling her to change a few key behaviors. Within the first year, her blood work came back completely normal for the first time in 10 years. She was able to safely reduce her use of meds. On top of improving her overall quality of life, she was able to get pregnant and give birth to her beautiful daughter, Lea.

Despite its significance, there are no lupus studies validating the impact of dietary intervention. Your blood work might give an indication of what’s wrong,  but it doesn’t tell us anything about the environment that goes into producing your condition.  Through beta testing and working with patients, we have gained significant understanding of lupus and we have seen that when identifying disease triggers we can reverse disease symptoms. That means that through diet & lifestyle changes we can guide you to improved health. We want to help lupus patients take control of their health through dietary intervention study.

With your $50K pledge we can start a NYC based lupus study—and change lives.

Working with Mymee has changed the way I view medicine — Dr. Paul Abramson, The Quantified Doctor.
