Rapper Snoop Dogg’s daughter, Cori Broadus, has taken a new holistic approach to combating her battle with Lupus.
She was diagnosed when she was 6 and has been on numerous medications since then, according to People Magazine.
Broadus stated, “I wanted to change because it just became a lot. I’m only 24 years old, taking 10 to 12 pills every single day. So I kind of just went cold Turkey.”
She described how the medications made her “feel like I was going insane.”
“I stopped taking all of my medication like five months ago,” Broadus explained. “I’m just doing everything natural, all types of herbs, sea moss, teas.”
Broadus added, “I started working out, drinking lots of water … So now I think my body’s like, OK, this is the new program and she’s getting used to it.”
The new program has helped. She said, “I’ve been good, better than I’ve ever been.”
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disorder that affects multiple areas of the body, including the kidneys, lungs, brain, and heart. It also causes inflammation and has no known cure.
Broadus is committed to her new approach.
She said, “It’s continuously a learning process because there’s so much more I could be doing.”
Eating healthy, getting enough rest, and working out despite experiencing how “hard it is to get out of bed in the morning,” have helped.
“My body is not achy,” she explained. “When you have lupus, that’s one of the number one things.”
“You have achy joints, you have arthritis. And now I’m like, damn, I’m not complaining about my knees, my feet, my hands, my back,” she said.
She also noted, “I want to be OK,” she said. “You’re not going to always be OK, and that’s OK because we’re human, but I want to be OK overall, mentally, physically. And we’re going to get there.”
