I'm delighted I finally finished the book trailer for my book and added it to Youtube. It took a while. If you ended up on this page and wants to know more about Palmoplantar Pustulosis, just check out my blog where I share a lot of information on how you can treat this disease naturally.
I’m thrilled to announce the launch of my new book
How To Treat PPP Naturally: Put Your Palmoplantar Pustular Psoriasis In Remission And Get Your Life Back In 90 days
I wrote this book because I used to be struggling with PPP but thankfully been cleared from this disease for the last three years without a single outbreak,
My book is the result of me spending hours of studying health and nutrition to find a way to restore my non functional immune system and to found a solution to heal myself from this painful and life destroying disease naturally. After implementing everything I learned along my journey, I successfully manage to heal myself from PPP.
If you are PPP sufferer and find it difficult to walk and wear shoes due to the severe pain from when the pustular opens up turning in to fissures and starts bleeding, please continue reading.
The worst part of having Palmoplantar Pustular Psoriasis aside from the itchiness and the fact it doesn't look very pretty, has to be the unbearable pain. Specifically the pain whilst walking, and particularly if there are deep fissures (cracks in the skin) which are also bleeding.
Before I got my PPP diagnosis I had been to over 9 doctor appointments where one of them was a trip to the ER where I was diagnosed with having scabies. Another doctor persisted it was my shoes causing the blisters ignoring me when I said it doesn't explain the blisters on my hand?
My PPP started after I had taken a course of antibiotics due to a gum infection around my wisdom tooth. It took several months before developing in to a full on PPP outbreak. It started of with approx 10-15 red pin sized red dots on the sole of my right foot. In the first couple of months it stayed like that, just a few red dots. Gradually my foot started to become itchy as well but there were no blisters. I had no symptoms on my hand as far as I was aware of. My foot actually didn't bother me too much even though I was a bit concerned.
One morning a few months after first noticing the red pin sized dots I woke up with an outbreak of skin bumps and blisters all over my inner thighs, bum, genital area and my foot and hand. It was so soar and itchy at the same time. I made it to the ER where they first thought it was herpes but quickly changed their mind and decided it was the foot and mouth disease, to go on and change their mind again (after a quick google on the Internet) and confirmed it was scabies.
There has been little investigation into the role of stress in PPP, but in one small study (Saez-Rodriguez 2002 ) anxiety scores were found to be higher in patients with PPP than in control patients. The authors suggested that stress and the worsening of PPP may be related. According to this study most autoimmune diseases are triggered by a major stressor. In fact, 80% of people report uncommon emotional stress before disease onset.
At the time I was diagnosed with PPP I went through a really stressful time in my life. I was working full time in a very stressful and negative environment, as well as being a mother, taking care of a toddler, and I didn't sleep well. I remember back than waking up in the mornings with an abnormal high pulse and having pains in my heart terrified with fear what the day would bring. Not a very good place to be in if you ask me. I silly enough choose to ignore all this and the signs my body was sending me. I know for sure that stress was one of my triggers to onset PPP . At the time I wasn't eating properly which meant my immune system wasn't functioning at the level it should. I had also been on several antibiotic courses due to repetitive strep throat infections.
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
