Our core philosophy is “whole body wellness,” that addresses the physical, emotional and communication needs and challenges of people living with MG, by combining effective medical management with complementary approaches, emotional self-care and healthy lifestyle habits. We represent “people” living with MG, not just “ patients” living with MG. We believe this perspective is critical to disease management self-efficacy and optimized quality of life.

Myasthenia Gravis is a rare chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease that impacts the voluntary muscles. Myasthenia Gravis literally means grave muscle weakness. People with a diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis may experience one or more of the symptoms referenced below. These symptoms may come on all at once or take years to develop. Some of the symptoms may get better rest while other symptoms may require medication, immunotherapy, supplements or lifestyle modification. Each person diagnosed with MG experiences the symptoms differently, this is why it is referred to as the snowflake disease. We are all very unique in the way MG shows up in our lives. Additionally, people diagnosed with MG do not all respond the same to the various treatments.
Common MG symptoms:
Changes in facial expression
Shortness of breath
Muscle weakness in neck, arms, legs, hands or fingers
