My Personal Journey:
Healing Psoriasis Naturally

After years of figuring out what exactly causes my psoriasis,
I finally have healed my chronic elbow patches!

In honor of psoriasis awareness month, I wanted to share some more photos of my own psoriasis. Over the past 5 years, I’ve experienced periods of chronic patches lasting for years each on my elbows, forearms, ankles, feet, & inside my belly button (gah!). I’ve also had many periods of transient patches, that pop up most frequently on my face but also my toes, wrist, & upper arm.

Circa 2016, when I had 2 chronic psoriasis patches on each arm.

Treating my suspected chronic intestinal fungal infection with anti-fungal herbs allowed me to greatly reduce the four chronic patches I had on my elbows & forearms to just one little tiny patch on one elbow. Significantly reducing my stress (hello having the privilege to quit my dangerously stressful job & start a yoga teacher training!) has allowed me to completely heal my ankle & feet patches. Now, I am nursing very small patches that come & go on one elbow & in my belly button – a WORLD of difference!! I hope to one day find full remission from my psoriasis, using only natural methods.

My professional opinion is to NEVER doubt the body’s ability to heal itself. Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition – so learn everything you can about supporting & healing your immune system. Eating well & regularly, getting enough sleep, managing outside stressors as much as possible, meditating or participating in any activity that makes you experience “flow”, moderate exercise, checking your vitamin D levels, & treating any concurrent chronic infections are some ideas to get you started on supporting your immune system for optimal healing & disease management. As I continue to research & learn more on this topic, I will be sure to share my findings!

Thank you all for coming along on this journey with me. My only goals are to inform & inspire!
