At the time when I was diagnosed with Palmoplantar Pustulosis I was quite frustrated with the lack of information out there regarding this disease. During a painful and lonely period of my life, I had a huge need to read about and hear from other people in the same situation as me, I wanted to know how other people were dealing/coping with this condition and if there was a chance of recovery and getting into remission. But there was very little information to be find back then. Personally I had never heard of nor met anyone with PPP before my diagnosis and this was quite frustrating. I had a big drive to understand what type of disease PPP is and to find out how to overcome it if possible. Obviously I read all the major medical sites about Palmoplantar Pustulosis, but I couldn't find much info from actual sufferers, real people. I followed a few on Inspire (a medical forum) but there was no one there at the time which I followed who had healed from PPP (that I know of).
Readers who follow my blog and who have read my book, know that it was around the time of my diagnosis when I decided to take matters into my own hands to help myself to recovery. My philosophy was/is - if I could impair my own immune system by diet and lifestyle i could also turn things around again and fix it. So I started my research by reading a lot of books and medical reports on the subject.
After putting my newly discovered knowledge into practice I successfully manage to heal from this condition in less then 3 months. My experience eventually led me to write my book which includes the story of my own PPP journey and what needs to be done to get well. It's now been nearly 10 years since I ended up in remission and 5 years since I wrote the book.
Since my remission from palmoplantar pustulosis my drive has always been to help others , to be a voice of hope, a voice I didn't have when I was sick. This is why I love reading recovery stories like Michelle's, a fellow ex. PPP sufferer. It's so helpful for other people in the same situation.
So please take your time to read the interview with Michelle by Autoimmune Wellness. This interview is about Michelle and what she did to heal from palmoplantar pustulosis.
Her healing journey is very inspiring for anyone who's interested in going into remission the natural way without biologics.
