After 32 years of working as a traditional nurse, applying pounds of cortisone cream to hundreds of people suffering from psoriasis and autoimmune skin problems, I realized this approach was never going to “cure” these afflictions. At best cortisone calmed the skin down temporarily but was not worth the side effects of blurred vision, uneven heartbeats, thinning of the skin, and the rest of the list that is just as bad as the psoriasis itself.
After years of research and training by some of the world’s greatest holistic doctors, it finally made sense to me that a major contributing factor to the development of psoriasis and other autoimmune skin problems is the wide variety of foods that contain saturated fat, sugar, and yeast. This is a lifestyle that most Americans follow over the years and often leads to the initial appearance of skin problems. It’s not easy recognizing this link and connecting the dots of diet to illness.
The healing process begins with the recognition that certain foods can be damaging to the natural flora of the digestive tract. Such foods also disturb the proper functioning of the immune system and cause subclinical inflammation. After looking at hundreds of slides of blood under the microscope and connecting these images with the subject’s lifestyle habits, the term “autoimmune disease” became understandable to me for the first time.
The prevalence of yeast in the bodies of most Americans has been linked to acid/alkaline imbalance; liver, lung, and colon toxicity; digestive issues; bacteria and parasites; leaky gut, and more.
There are diet and supplement “tools” along with lifestyle changes that I can recommend for a firm foundation of good health. Once causes of disease are identified, a solution and plan of resolution can be established.
