Congratulations to Shomika Patange for graduating from the Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition program. Shomika earned a Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology and Microbiology from the University of Central Florida. After a personal experience and research, she became interested in nutrition and naturopathic medicine. She believes in using nutrition as it focuses on the cause and not the symptom of the illness. Silencing symptoms with prescribed drugs can be deadly as it masks the injury inside the body and may come with a long list of side effects. Shomika entered Hawthorn to learn more about holistic nutrition. She wanted to know how to free the body from toxins, nourish with vitamins and minerals, and make lifestyle changes through diet. She is a person full of courage, faith, and a passion for holistic nutrition. Her thesis is entitled A Review of Evidence Elucidating the Role of Biochemical Pathways Along with Exploration of Nutrition-Based Solutions that Subdue the Inflammatory Response and its Aftermaths in Patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Best of luck, Shomika!
