HHi, I have a family member diagnosed with severe Lupus, has anyone worked with clients who have this condition and if so I would appreciate knowing the therapies that were beneficial, Aromatherapy I know can be extremely good so even if someone has used this can you let me know the benefits/results.

Many thanks

Hi Frances

You're right, aromatherapy can prove very helpful in such cases. Perhaps you would like to consider contacting Chris Katsis of Katseye Blends Aromatherapy? He's a great fountain of knowledge, and through Katseye you can be put in touch with a practitioner local to yourself, if you wish. He can be contacted at Good luck!

Thank you Stephanie and I will contact him, I am a qualified therapist/lecturer so I am going to work along side her doctor and discuss Aromatherapy with them. I appreciate your reply as I do not have any experience of working with anyone with Lupus.

Hello Frances,
Just saw your request. I have no idea where your family member lives in England. Have you ever heard of EDEN ENERGY MEDICINE? You can google Donna Eden's website: Donna Eden has the ability to sense and see energies and after succesfully working with thousands of clients she has been teaching her Energy Medicine for the last 10 to 15 years. Donna distinguishes 9 energy systems. Eden Energy Medicine finds a lot of its roots in Chinese Medicine and blends it with western insights, you can learn how to do a daily energy routine, how to energy test a person and how to work with their energy systems to balance them.
The first European Foundation course is starting in the beginning of March near Dorking, South of London. You can find information on Donna's website. There you can also find a list of Certified practitioners in England.
Donna Eden is, together with her husband David Feinstein the author of: ENERGY MEDICINE & ENERGY MEDICINE FOR WOMEN. Very worthwhile books. In her ENERGY MEDINE book she mentions LUPUS as having an autoimmune component, where Triple Warmer in its overvigilance directs the body to attack its own tissue.
It would be worthwhile to do some research into Donna's work.
I wish that find gems on your path,
Kind regards,

Josie Scholman,

Many thanks Josie for your reply and this will be a route I will follow up, I am also very much into Chinese Medicicine and have also been looking at the triple burner with re: to lupus! I will contact the website you posted and hopefully can get a one day workshop form them here in Glasgow.

Thanks again

Dear Frances,
I checked the Practitioners' section on Donna's website, but there is no practitioner name for Scotland, only some names for England. The person who is organising the European Foundation Training is Madison King, she now lives in Spain. Her email adress is Madison may be able to bring you in touch with somebody from the Eden Energy Medicine Community. Donna Eden herself actually was I think in Edinborough and other places in Europe last year. She did a European tour and held her 5-day Introductory Training in Cardiff. I have no idea whether she'll be back soon again. But there will be increasingly more trained practitioners, especially now that the European training is starting. You could ask Madison whether there'll be anyone from Glasgow on the training. Sometimes it may be possible that you invite a Certified trainer, provided there will be enough participants. Again you could talk to Madison. Wishing you much inspiration and guidance on your search journey!

Hi Frances,
I currently work with someone with lupus. There are a number of possible remedies and self management through supplements and diet. If you'd like to give me your address I can post some info to you or scan it in an email if you give me your email. My email address is if you want to keep your details private. I also practice energy healing working on all levels through physical to soul in the treatment. Whilst help with the physical symptoms needs addressing initailly it is worth while exploring what caused the imbalance on a deeper level.
I am based in Glasgow if that helps.

One therapist in the USA has written a well research book on auto immune issues including Lupas and recommends massive amounts of Pro-Biotic (Keffir), and increased enzyme consumption with meals, either in tablet form or in food form. Also reducing common intolerance foods such as wheat or gluten.

Just letting you know that Donna Eden (See Josie Scholman's earlier reply)is making a tour through England. Anyone who wants to learn more about Energy Medicine and how to support our various energy systems, is welcome to visit Donna's workshops.
For details see under Classes / Events. She'll be in
LONDON on Sunday 16th March, Manchester on Tuesday 19th March, BIRMINGHAM Thursday 21st March and present a Weekend Workshop in BRISTOL on SATURDAY & SUNDAY 23rd and 24th MARCH.
Donna Eden's work recognizes energy as the force behind the physical symptoms, Donna is able to see and sense energy and has developed very simple protocols to get our energies flowing in a joyful and alive way.
Well worth checking out!
Many Blessings to you all,
Josie Scholman
