--How Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease that can actually be fatal if it impacts the heart, lungs, and kidneys.

--Why Dr. Prather says this is an under-diagnosed disease that is "tricky" to diagnose. And why a "post-surgical failure" is a common cause of Scleroderma.

--The role hormones play in Scleroderma and how women are more likely to suffer from it.

--Why surgery and opioids make Scleroderma WORSE. And how Dr. Prather looks at the scar from surgery to help determine if a patient has Scleroderma.

--That Acupuncture is well-documented to be "absolutely wonderful" in treating Scleroderma. And the specialized, gentle Chiropractic adjustments necessary for Scleroderma patients.

--What a Hair Analysis can reveal for a Scleroderma patient. Plus, the role of gut health in Scleroderma.

--Why Structure-Function Health Care is the kind of care "every person with Scleroderma" should pursue as the best approach.
