When I got my PPP diagnosis I was determine to find a way to cure myself. There was no way I could accept life, living with a chronic disease which was disabling me.
I started to do a lot of research in to nutrition and how to boost and repair a dysfunctional immune system naturally. I discovered the key to improve your health, is basically to start with the gut or the flora which resides there. Your Gut health literally affects your entire body and it's the part of your body where most of the vitamins and minerals are absorbed which are needed for your immune cells to work properly. The only way to do this is to eat a diet containing all the nutrients you body (cells) so badly need to function and to remove the bad stuff from your diet that causes inflammation and don’t have any nutritional value.
I discuss this subject more in my book.
But what does "Start with your gut" actually mean?
Palmoplantar Pustular Psoriasis causes - 4 Quick Tips to boost your immune System and clear from PPP
There’s a lot of information out there how to boost your immune system and how to heal your self from various autoimmune diseases, and I totally understand it can be confusing and difficult who to listen to and where to start. But to boost the immune system is not about tactics such as trying various supplements and lotions and potions which might be helpful but after a while has no effect. Trust me I’ve been there and tried most of them.
To get well from an autoimmune disease you have to understand the whole system. There are a million little pieces to it and the trick is to see how they all fit together for your body to heal as fast as possible.
When my doctor told me I got PPP I was very eager to try anything that might cure me from this horrible disease and randomly tried to boost my immune system with probiotics for a couple of months and then vitamin D3 to move on trying biotin as I read that had successfully healed people with palmoplantar pustulosis.
I want to write about 5 areas of focus that are particularly important for you to be able to heal from your palmoplantar pustulosis psoriasis. It doesn't matter if you've been suffering with PPP for a long time or if you recently got diagnosed… these are certain cornerstones that you can control to reverse your PPP. I discuss all this in more detail I my upcoming book about how to clear PPP naturally in 90 days.
The day has finally arrived when I decided to make Well Healed public. I have spent the last year writing my book and working on this site and feel I'm nearly there. The website is starting to look the way I want it and the book is nearly finished.
I wanted to create a forum for us who's suffering with PPP or has been suffering with this horrible disease, a place where we can meet, talk, share our ups and downs and support each other. I managed to clear my PPP by diet and lifestyle changes and would love to help other sufferers by telling my story.
Please check out the forum to introduce yourself, I would love the forum to grow and become a support center for us with palmoplantar pustulosis psoriasis.
Since we bought our juicer 6 months ago we have been "using" it daily :)
It's a great little machine from Philips. We all (the three of us) love making our juices and to see the vegetable and fruits quickly resolve and turn in to a delicious nutritious juice :)
It all started with me and my husband watching "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead which is a 2010 American documentary film which follows the 60-day journey of Australian Joe Cross across the United States as he follows a juice fast to regain his health under the care of Dr. Joel Fuhrman. I was blown away and the film was definitely an eye opener. This documentary is available to watch on Netflix.
The documentary explains the importance of what all the minerals and vitamins which you get from fruit and vegetables plays in our body and why we need to consume these on a daily basis. We all know we need to eat our daily greens but I don't think many people know why that is :)
When I was diagnosed with Palmoplantar pustulosis doctors told me there is nothing we can do for you apart from giving you an immune suppressant drug (biologic). Those type of drugs will suppress your immune system even more than it's already is and you should not become pregnant within two years after stop taking them as there is a big risk your unborn will be defect. From my view of things there must be another path.
My way of thinking was............if I managed to destroy and collapse my immune system (due to stress, a bad diet as well as antibiotics) there must be a way to rebuild my health again. And juicing has been one way to do this
Apart from drinking green juices daily I actually did a three day juice fast back in June which I will write about in a near future :) I felt great and lost a lot a weight and my skin was glowing afterwards, even the cellulite on my thighs seemed to have been reduced.....so all good :)
Another great documentary in the same genre worth watching is Super Juice Me by Jason Vale aka "The Juice Master". He brings eight people who collectively suffered from 22 different chronic diseases and put them on his ‘Juice Only’ diet for 28 days.
The best thing is my 6 year old daughter has slowly but surly started to drink the juices I make. She is the most important thing in my life and her health and well being is my main focus. Today's juice consisted of Apples, oranges, kale, and cucumber...yum
