WHAT MY PSORIASIS PATIENTS SAY ABOUT ME

I suffer from a chronic immune disease. I came to Milena interested in how a change in diet could further improve my symptoms plus my overall health. The advice given by Milena has helped improve my symptoms and also increased my energy throughout the day. The benefits have been so noticeable that it has been easy to persevere with the changes to my diet.

WHAT IS PSORIASIS?

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin condition characterized by the rapid overproduction of skin cells, leading to the formation of thick, red, and scaly patches on the skin. Psoriasis occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells, causing an accelerated skin cell turnover process.

Psoriasis can affect any part of the body, including the scalp, elbows, knees, lower back, and genital area. The severity of symptoms can vary from mild, with small and localized patches, to severe, with extensive coverage across the body. Psoriasis is a chronic condition, and symptoms can come and go, with periods of flare-ups and remission.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR?

SYMPTOMS OF PSORIASIS:

  • Red Patches of Skin
    The affected areas of the skin are often red, inflamed, and may feel warm to the touch.
  • Thickened or Raised Skin
    Psoriasis can lead to the development of plaques – raised, thickened areas of skin covered with silvery-white scales.
  • Silvery Scales
    The scales that form on the skin are often silvery-white and can be easily scraped off. These scales result from the excessive production of skin cells.
  • Itching and Irritation
    Psoriasis patches are often itchy and can cause discomfort. Scratching may worsen the condition and lead to skin injury.
  • Dry or Cracked Skin
    The affected skin may become dry and prone to cracking, which can be painful.
  • Bleeding
    In some cases, psoriasis patches may bleed if the scales are picked or scratched off.
  • Nail Changes
    Psoriasis can affect the nails, causing changes such as pitting (small dents or depressions), discoloration, and thickening.
  • Joint Pain
    Some patients with psoriasis may experience joint pain and inflammation, a condition known as psoriatic arthritis.

My Approach

As a Nutritionist and Nutritional Therapist, when working with patients in my clinic in Marylebone, London, and online, I take a holistic approach. Rather than suppressing the symptoms, I work on finding the root cause of Psoriasis and restoring the balance using diet, supplements and lifestyle.

The gastrointestinal system, especially the gut, houses a significant portion of the immune system. Approximately 70% of the body’s immune cells are found in the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). This high concentration of immune cells in the gut is essential for monitoring and responding to potential threats from ingested microorganisms and antigens.

The interaction between the gut and the immune system is complex, involving a balance between protecting the body from harmful pathogens and tolerating beneficial substances.

Changes in this balance, such as disruptions in the gut microbiota or increased permeability of the intestinal lining, have been suggested to play a role in the development or exacerbation of autoimmune diseases.

My 5R Approach 

REMOVE

Remove allergic/intolerant foods, parasites, bad bacteria, yeast. This may include an ‘elimination diet’ to find out what foods are causing the symptoms.

REPLACE

Replace digestive secretions, such as hydrochloric acid, digestive enzymes or bile salts, that are required for proper digestion and that may be compromised by diet, drugs, diseases, ageing, and other factors.

REINOCULATE

Populate your gut with probiotics and prebiotics.

REPAIR

Help the lining of the gut repair itself by supplying the key nutrients.

REBALANCE

Address the lifestyle factors that may affect your gut function.

WORKING WITH A NUTRITIONIST

Working with a Nutritionist can be transformative if you suffer from Psoriasis and are facing challenges. If you’re dealing with symptoms despite your best efforts, it may be time to seek professional help. You can work with your Nutritionist to create a personalised nutrition plan, identify nutrient deficiencies, and address any other underlying medical issues that might be adversely affecting your well-being.

Your Nutritionist can work with you to develop a personalised nutrition plan that is catered to your unique needs and goals. The Nutritionist can also offer recommendations on the best supplements to take and lifestyle choices, like getting enough sleep and managing your stress.
