Flare Management Strategies
Flaring is the *worst* so interviews tagged in this category contain strategies for both the physical and mental strains of trying to tame the beast.
The best psoriasis diet? Well i don’t believe one size fits all but I am a big time fan of nutrition feeding the systems we need to support health.
Hello mental strain- its HARD living with psoriasis. Even pretending you’re fine is exhausting sometimes! This is an important, and under-talked about topic. Not any more 🙂
I’m not against drugs- but I do believe the body has innate abilities to heal if we learn to listen. That is the focus of these episodes.
Er…Dating and psoriasis. Two hard things mixed together to create a harder thing. Do not fear- I ran a whole special on this topic – I have you covered.
So where should you get started?
If you want to improve your diet to introduce anti-inflammatory foods or are thinking of trying an exclusion diet then check out my interview with Nutritionist Sally Duffin and if you are looking for something more gut health and hormone related you will love this interview with Kezia Hall.
If you want to find like minded people to talk to you (because really friends who don’t understand can only help so much) you will find value in my interview with Todd Bello and there is a Social Media guide for members you might like to check out in the resource area.
I get you. I have had some seriously unhelpful experiences, but we need to make sure our healthcare professionals work alongside us as equal partners. This interview with GP Dan Maggs on how to get what you want from your GP is a great starting place plus this chat with Dermatologist Dr Jon Goulding is great too.
I have been here and its awful. I talk to one of my favourite humans- Reena Ruparelia about this exact topic so this is a great place to start.
I have lots of specific content coming for you soon, but all of the interviews factor in psoriatic arthritis; for example the anti-inflammatory diets discussed with Sally Duffin and getting the most from your doctor, in particular when you see multiple specialists with Dr Dan Maggs.
