Dr. Candy has organized clinical training and assisted in the course development for the US Trichology Institute, (USTI). She held this position as lead facilitator for 6 years. New York-Presbyterian, Columbia Medical Center is the training partner for USTI.
Today, our guest is Dr. Candy Lewis Williams. She is the founder of the Lotus Concept, a Board-Certified Naturopathic Doctor, Functional Medicine Practitioner, Master Herbalist, and veteran Trichologist with thirty-five year of experience. Her expertise as a well-known educator and guest lecturer has taken her across the US with appearances on the Dr. Oz Show as a leading expert in hair loss solutions, alternative and complementary medicine. After being diagnosed with alopecia areata 35 years ago, Dr. Candy now provides first-hand experience on autoimmune conditions and hair loss.
So often, I hear a lot of confusion from adults, as well as parents of children living with alopecia around the topic of functional medicine. What is it? How is it different? In today's interview, Dr. Candy clarifies the differences, and she gives us an idea of what an appointment with her might look like.
