Cori Broadus, Snoop Dogg’s 24-year-old daughter, has gone entirely natural to treat her Lupus symptoms. Broadus told People that she transitioned because she’s been repeating the same routine nearly her entire life since being diagnosed with the disease at age 6.
“I’ve had medication since I was 6 years old, depending on these drugs all my life. So, I wanted better for myself. 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 remarked.
She told the outlet that after going natural five months ago, “I’ve been good, better than I’ve ever been,” following a rocky path that included a suicide attempt in 2021.
She drinks a lot of water and takes a variety of herbs, sea moss, teas, and other supplements as part of her new regimen. She also mentioned that she goes to the gym on a regular basis and works with a personal trainer with her fiancé, Wayne. Her body, she said, is adjusting to it.
“My body is not achy,” she shared. “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.”
Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system mistakes healthy tissues as foreign invaders and attacks them rather than targeting bad bacteria and viruses. It causes inflammation affecting the joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs. There is currently no cure for the disease.
Despite her current progress, the 24-year-old explained that she understands it’s a learning process, and she still has some lifestyles she’s combating, like her eating habits and not resting enough.
“If I can do a whole 360 change and just get healthy all around, I think I would be so good. But I tell people all the time, it’s a day-by-day process. Things are going to take time. Nothing is going to happen overnight,” she explained.
Last year, the Snoop Dogg family launched the Broadus Collection of luxury scarves dedicated to and inspired by their youngest daughter, who started losing her hair after being diagnosed with lupus. In order to help Broadus feel more confident, her celebrity parents and siblings all started donning scarves.
Even though lupus does not currently have a cure, Cori holds on to hope.
“I want to be okay. You’re not going to always be okay, and that’s okay because we’re human, but I want to be okay overall, mentally, physically. And we’re going to get there,” she told People.
She has been open about her health and has documented her wellness journey on social media.
