Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition and many autoimmune disorders are a result of inflammatory mediators such as leukotrienes present in a high concentration. Psoriasis is characterized by red, itchy, scaly, irritated skin. Other symptoms associated with psoriasis are psoriatic arthritis, fatigue and poor gut health. The root cause of psoriasis is unknown and therefore the first point of investigation would be antecedents. Through my experience the root cause or contributing factors have varied from client to client. Clinical manifestations have arisen from emotional trauma, diet, lifestyle, stress or a combination. In this young adults case diet played a critical role. psoriasis requires long term nutritional therapy, gut healing and skin cell regeneration. This requires reduced internal inflammation.
Food choices are building materials for your cells, therefore focusing on anti-inflammatory foods is at the core of cell regeneration. There are many other factors such as lifestyle that play an imperative role in cell regeneration.
It may be noted, clients can regress, however it is critical to maintain advice given during the program. If You desire to start the functional medicine therapy in combination with counseling. This involves a deeper look and focus on nutritional and biochemical imbalances in the body that lead to ill health. A review of the client’s health history, lifestyle and diet. Evaluate change through a bespoke assessment for each client. Deliver nutrition education tailored to each client’s condition to assist the client. Alleviate and provide preventative consultative advice related to their condition.
