Selena Gomez revealed her struggle with lupus, a debilitating autoimmune disorder, in 2012. Since then the brunette beauty has seen all the top specialists from LA to NY, but still suffers with painful joint swelling and exhaustion. Now a source tells Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Selena has a new plan of attack to get well.
Selena Gomez, 24, has had it with pills, steroids, and bed rest. She’s planning to take her lupus, a disease in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue, from a whole new angle: holistically. Selena told fans in early September 2016 that she’s struggling with lupus-related panic attacks and depression, but now she’s determined to turn her life around. She’s enlisted a new team of holistic doctors, naturopaths, and acupuncturists.
“Selena Gomez has not experienced a lot of relief from classic western medicine, and is seeking alternative treatments for her lupus diagnosis,” a source close to the singer told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She wants to begin ‘chelation therapy,’ which is a method of pulling toxins and metals out of the body. She’s switched to an all organic, grain-free diet, and thoroughly ‘detoxed’ her house. All her soaps, beauty products, and cleaning supplies are natural and organic.”
And that’s not all! “She’s also juicing 3 times a day. Her new team of doctors thinks drugs will only cover up the problem, but [these methods] will really help, if not cure [her lupus]!” Hopefully this works out for Selena! She revealed in 2015 that she had major problems with some of the traditional medicine that she tried. Selena told her fans that she had undergone chemotherapy to treat the illness. She was weak, nauseous, and her hair thinned as a result. Poor Selena!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Is the organic approach the way to go, or should Selena stick with white coats and stethoscopes?
