In this week’s episode, we’re talking with Margaret Romero, who shares her stunning lupus turnaround story. After a sudden and dramatic health crash, she received a lupus nephritis diagnosis and was told she would likely be on the kidney transplant list in five years.

Instead, she’s thriving and no longer has any signs of lupus. She can even be in the sun again, which is something that lupus patients are told to never do.

A nurse practitioner by training, Margaret ultimately sleuthed the root causes behind her own health issues, began addressing them, and engineered a complete lupus recovery.

Margaret Romero is a Columbia-trained nurse practitioner who uses functional medicine to treat chronic illness, autoimmunity, and women’s health issues. She’s been a clinical instructor and taught Functional/Integrative Medicine at Columbia University. She’s the host of The Sacred Medicine Podcast and author of From Flare to Fabulous: 25 Things You Must Do to Avoid Your Next Lupus Flare.
