I think most of us been told by our doctors that palmoplantar pustular psoriasis is a genetic and chronic (not treatable) disease.
The below PPP Success story by Janine is evidence to the contrary. I hope Janine’s story will help and inspire the readers of my blog to get started on your own health/recovery journey by showing that it is possible to get rid of PPP after all.
I would also love to hear from other fellow Palmoplantar pustular psoriasis sufferers who has manage to clear this horrible disease with either conventional medicine or using a natural approach.
Our gathered experiences can help and spread the word that PPP does not have to be a fact of life. If you want to share your own story to the world please contact me, there are so little information about this disease out there and it's a great support to read about others in the same boat.
Take care and do get in contact.....I would love to hear from you....now...over to Janine :)
I think I found your blog one desperate night in the summer of 2014. I have PPP on my right foot. I am 50 years old but it started in 2013 when I was 46. I had no idea what it was. I have learned over the years that it is best to search for a holistic alternative to traditional western medicine. This is why I was trolling the internet, literally typing in "bottom of foot itchy", Some how my crazy random google words led me to your blog. I have been trying to figure out for years how to find you to thank you. The book you wrote is a GIFT to anyone and everyone that is seeking answers and help.
First of all and before I share my story and how I put PPP and arthritis into remission I want to say THANK YOU Asa. I was so desperate for an answer. Your story all of those years ago reinforced my inclination to go the holistic route. You literally saved me months, possibly years of uncertainty and pain. Not to mention thousands of dollars in Dr. Visits that were not going to help at all. I was so depressed, so exhausted from lack of sleep due to the pain and itching. I cried all of the time and I just wanted to curl up in a ball and stay like that forever.
So here it is for all of you ladies out there looking for hope. And again I would not be where I am today without Asa. Also, like Asa says your have to be patient, take the time to find the combination that works for you.
As I said above I discovered PPP on the bottom of my right foot when I was 46 years old. I also had a rash on my right elbow, with joint pain, and joint pain in my right thumb. I am a smoker. I do not drink alcohol, sugary drinks, or processed foods. I live in a area where we don't have fast food. Im average weight and I do like to run. I eat pretty healthy and clean, if its not certified organic its not in our house. I do LOVE hot peppers but have mostly given them up as I noticed when I cut them out it made difference in the severity of the PPP breakouts. I have a very high stress job. At the time this all started to manifest I was probably in one of the most stressful periods of my life.
I started with a supplement regiment immediately after reading the blog. I have not quit smoking (I would love to someday)
It took me a year to get the supplements right but that was because Asa had not written her book yet and Im sure she was still learning too!.
I began taking Moducare, Wobensym, a multi vitamin, CoQ10, Probiotic, Silver water. After 60 days nothing had changed but nothing had gotten worse and yes I was still dealing with the stress. I discovered I had to be patient and tweek the supplements. I wont bore you with everything I tried that did not work, I will tell you what did work, and still does work.
I know its not the healthiest thing in the world but I don't eat breakfast. I never have. I don't recommend not eating breakfast. I take the supplements in the morning and they fill me up because there are so many of them. I take some of the same supplements at night before bed.
The brand I have here in the US is Sports Research 100% organic non-GMO I buy them on Amazon. Once I got the combination right, it took less than 60 days for the PPP and arthritis to go into full remission.
-Probiotic, I switch them up each time I need a new bottle, I buy the type that need to be refrigerated and I try to get a dosage with not less than 20 billion. 1 a day before bed
-Biotin 5000 MG in the morning and before bed
-Vitamin D3 in the morning and before bed
-Vitamin K2 in the morning and before bed
-Vitamin A in the morning and before bed
-Vitamin C in the morning
-Moducare in the morning
-Silver Water in the morning
-Magnesium 2000 mg in the morning (too much can give you diarrhea so be careful when you first start with this.
-Turmeric Cur cumin The brand is from Sports Research they have the perfect blend, and its important to have the right blend or your body will not absorb it properly. (this is a god send and helps with ALL kinds of inflammatory issues related to Auto Immune.
After less than 30 days of taking this the joint pain and rashes were completely gone.
-three times a week I drink a glass of psyllium husks (organic) mixed with Bentonite Clay (liquid) Its not the most pleasant thing in the world but it does really help pull toxins and flush them out of the colon.
Im happy to say its gone! All of it, the rashes, the PPP, the joint pain, the acne, gone. I know it all lurks there under the surface waiting for me to get stressed out, give up on the supplements or go eat a giant tub of the hottest salsa ever made. The fact that I now control it, and it no longer controls me is the greatest feeling ever.
I know this can seem overwhelming, but if you are all like me, you are willing to try anything to get some relief. Read Asa's book, it will explain so much more of the what, why, how. Her story is amazing, its incredible that she wanted to take the time to share it with all of us out here. Be kind to yourself.
