I see clients of all ages suffering with psoriasis and adopt a holistic approach, combining medical, lifestyle and wellness approaches using my Holistic Elements Skin Consultation, to create a personalised plan which always includes recipes.
WHAT IS PLAQUE PSORIASIS?
The exact trigger to plaque psoriasis is unknown, although family history, hormones, stress and sunlight exposure are known to play a role in its development. Some studies have shown that elevated levels of leukotrienes – compounds which cause inflammation in the body - are present in the skin of sufferers. People with plaque psoriasis may also have reduced levels of selenium and beta-carotene.
HOW IS PLAQUE PSORIASIS DIAGNOSED?
This type of psoriasis is the most common, affecting around 2-3% of the global population. Plaque psoriasis is usually diagnosed by looking at the symptoms: large or small patches of thickened, raised skin which often have a red and silvery appearance, seen most commonly on the torso, arms and legs. A skin biopsy or blood test may be necessary to gain a clear picture of psoriasis type and general health.
WILL MY SKIN EVER BE CLEAR?
In my experience combination treatment works best, and getting to the root cause helps to prevent future flare ups. I see clients of all ages suffering with psoriasis and use my Holistic Elements Skin Consultation to create a personalised plan and identify triggers whicb may lead to plaque formation.
