HelloMy name is Lynne and I am a medical nutritionist. I write books on how nutritional medicine can address disease states without the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs, many of which , of the latter, are not necessary in the first place and have detrimental side effects. I have been studying nutritional medicine for 62 years (since the age of 8 yrs) either from the elders in my family or through more conventional routes like uni.I offer nutritional alternatives for people to consider as these come without the side effects of pharmaceuticals.In the case below, this patient had been on Amlodipine - a calcium channel blocker - for over 20 years - and had a case of Schamberg's Disease - see top left hand side where the 'rash' is angry looking. I replaced the Amlodipine with magnesium, which is also a calcium channel blocker but a natural one. The result of this, after 6 weeks, can be seen bottom left. Another six weeks we can see the rash is much less angry looking and has receded rapidly.The patient had been informed that the rash was due to the 'ageing process' 🙄Withdrawing Amlodipine had no effect on the patient's blood pressure whatsoever but had clear benefits for his skin.
I research difficult conditions which are generally classed as 'no treatment available.' This generally means no treatment that we are willing to pay for within the system. The Amlodipine rash is known as Schamberg's Disease and it is either not recognised by medics as associated with Amlodipine or it is ignored as such. Some of the books I have written can be found on my website below. I also have a BUY ME A COFFEE website on Twitter where there are protocols for various disorders which are FOC to access. I hope that you find this interesting.
In and amongst this, I grow my own food, love foraging ( I have written a book on foraging) and along with my OH, challenge injustices.
I am a member of the British Union of Journalists and a Member of the Guild of Health Writerswhere I intended writing as a health journalist before finding out that even health magazines want to push the narrative which I am not prepared to do.
