In December of 2003, Gwen Watkins was hospitialized because her systemic lupus erythematosus had worsened. Lupus is a chronic inflammation condition caused by an autoimmune disease. Her condition was affecting all functions of her body including her skin, her nervous system, joints, kidneys and heart. Gwen could no longer function like the everyday person. She recalls her experience saying, “I had welts and sores on my head, my feet were swollen five times their normal size, I had constant pneumonia, I was losing my voice, I had arthritis and my heart could no longer function like before. The doctors told me I had too much going on and I was going to die.”

Gwen experienced all the symptoms and downfalls lupus brings. Unable to bathe or cook for herself, she called Dr. Bob Martin who hosts a health radio show. He recommended she go to Envita Natural Medical Center. At Envita, the doctors put together a customized treatment plan that would benefit Gwen’s health. Her treatment plan included supplements, a change in diet and immunotherapy treatments. Gwen says, “The first time I went to see the doctors, they were so nice. It was wonderful.”

With continuation of her customized treatment program, Gwen began to witness results. “I was getting better with the treatments. My regular doctor couldn’t believe I was getting well.”

Gwen is a huge supporter of the treatments and care Envita provides and likes to spread the news. She talks to her family members and friends and encourages them to read the literature out there on natural medicine. Gwen says, “I’m happy I found Envita. I tell others not to wait until their kidneys fail. If I had never gone to Envita I would be bedridden. I couldn’t walk or talk before. Now I walk everyday and can carry on a conversation.”

Gwen brings light and reality to the treatments and care she received. She is yet another success story to Envita. She says, “Envita is just wonderful. They changed my life completely. If I don’t get any better as of now, they have still changed my life a million percent.”
