7 Key areas to focus on during your healing journey
As you know Palmoplantar Pustulosis is a very rare chronic autoimmune disease which is hard to treat using the conventional medical treatments.
If you are looking in to options how to combat PPP using a holistic approach and to heal naturally, changing your diet is crucial and a major part of the healing journey.
I write more about why this is a must and what to eat in the blog post called "What is the perfect diet to follow when healing from Palmoplantar Pustulosis?" and more in depth in my book.
But to be successful you need to make a few lifestyle changes as well apart from only changing your diet , and these are the steps I'm listing below.
I'm going to keep it short and precise.
Bust the stress
Find ways to reduce and manage stress. Do something that relaxes you every day – yoga, meditation, calming music, or even just a hot bath. Seriously you need to remove stress in your life to successfully beat PPP.
Cut the crap
Avoid all processed foods and sugary fizzy drinks. Stop eating sugar. Cut the carbs, and work toward improving gut health. Stop eating gluten!
Invest in good quality supplements. Your body needs good probiotics, zinc, vitamins D3+K2, magnesium.
Juice it up
Adopt a daily juicing regime to give your body all the vitamins and minerals it needs to rebuild and heal. Stick with the greens for maximum impact.
Learn how to cook nutritious and healthy meals that don’t include gluten and sugar.
Just say no
Cut down on alcohol and smoking. Drugs are a definite no-no.
Just say yes – to exercise!
Exercise daily. Go for walks, practice yoga, go swimming. Get active, your body will thank you.
Although there will be challenges along the way, my advice is to visualise the outcome, – how great it will be to walk in nice shoes again, or how you’ll feel when you don’t need to hide your hands. Don’t try to set a certain date for healing, this, as you know, is ludicrous. Instead, focus on improving your health and making lifestyle changes, one day at a time. For me it took 3 months to heal from PPP by following these steps.
