I am a Lupus patient and am currently in my final year of a BSc degree in Western Herbal Medicine at the University of Westminster. I decided I would like to explore peoples experiences with using complementary and alternative medicines (such as Acupuncture, herbs, homeopathy, massage, reflexology etc.) for my dissertation. I am looking for people who have a confirmed diagnosis of Lupus who have used or are currently using alternatives medicines to take part in some short interviews. All the information would be anonymous. I am based in London but am happy to travel for up to an hour to people to conduct the interviews. The dissertation will be supervised by Dr. Marie Polley who is a senior lecturer at Westminster.
Before participating in the interviews I would provide further information and contact details but at the moment I am just trying to get an idea of whether people would be willing to participate to ascertain if my dissertation idea is viable.
Many thanks and please feel free to send me a private message if you would like to discuss further.
