We are constantly inundated with the importance of doing a detox; this detox will make you slim, you must detox to give you more energy, help you sleep better, stay youthful looking and so on.
But are detox diets necessary and do they work?
For years I would hear, “When you get pregnant, your psoriasis will go away”.
With one doctor even presenting the possibility that it may completely go into remission once I fell pregnant.
Unfortunately, these were neither the case for me and over the years I have seen many women share similar experiences to me. Typically when you fall pregnant there is a shift in your immune system that prevents your body from rejecting the baby.
Illness is likely to affect most of us.
Whether we are ready for it or not it can happen at any time and what may appear to be over night. Once the initial shock subsides, we tend to get straight into looking for help.
For many of us, me included, the answers may not come immediately which gives the illness time to exacerbate. My experience was quite distressing in that my psoriasis had spread to cover my entire body within 7 years of having it.
Admittedly, different severities of psoriasis will respond differently to food.
Stiffness, burning, pain, swelling around the joints.
These are typical symptoms for those suffering from psoriatic arthritis.
The difference between Psoriatic Arthritis(PA) and Rheumatoid Arthritis(RA) is the way it affects the body. RA tends to affect the body symmetrically, so both sides of the body are affected ie: both wrists, both feet etc.
