Hanna Sillitoe is an interior designer who had one major bane in her life – 20 years of the worst kind of plaque psoriasis. Anyone who has any kind of psoriasis truly suffers – it is like having a burning, weeping poison ivy every single day of your life. Normal activities like being in a wedding or swimming may be on hold for years because you are tired of all the questions about your disease – “is that contagious?” is the most common.
She created a diet for herself that healed all of her problems and kissed psoriasis goodbye.
Her zero-tolerance approach to psoriasis triggers, inspired thousands of others to release their psoriasis for good.
But it wasn’t just psoriasis that plagued her whole life – by age 35, she was steeped in eczema, obesity, high blood pressure, constant urinary tract infections and round-the-clock exhaustion. At her worst, she needed to use plastic clingwrap between her clothes to prevent bleeding and chaffing of her raw, peeled skin. She was offered chemotherapy as a strange, last resort to her suffering. Steroid creams are the most common treatment but you must stay on them and they cause scarring and thinning of skin. Additionally the psoriasis pops up somewhere else like a never-ending whack-a-mole game.
