Some of you may know I developed psoriasis on the top of my feet about 10 years ago, apparently it happens when one goes through menopause. It began to slowly but surely creep up my legs and the rest of my body. The itch kept me awake at night. A specialist said no cure, use steroid cream and diet doesn’t help. Being the health nut that I am, steroid cream was not an option. Steroid cream certainly gave relief from he itch. However, I stopped eating processed sugar and that mostly dealt to the itch.The psoriasis began to recede. It hung round on my feet, sometimes elbows and knees. Not eating sugar was great, my moods were much more even. Occasionally it flared up, being worse at this time of year.
Four months ago my dear friend of 30 years Tania Coombs, a homeopath suggested I take a remedy. Tania knows me very well, more details of my life story than anyone else. She gave me a remedy that was for deep trauma. I had certainly had my share of that. In my mind I thought but I am over all that. Tania told me to watch my dreams, to ring her with any changes good or bad, or if I needed to talk. I did that, I had emotional shifts. I also did some hypnotherapy and regression work with Ashley Ferris. Some old buried feelings came to the surface. After one regression session I felt so much more connected with my feet. I had spent the last 10 years not liking my feet but it was deeper than that.
My feet, elbows, knees are completely clear my skin looks normal ! This happened slowly, rather like the way it began.
I was taught about Nature Cure 46 years ago. The core belief is that give the body the right conditions and it will heal itself. Homeopathy works in a similar way.
Homeopathy often gets bad press which is why I have shared this story. Tania tells me that it is important for her to hear the story from the client so she can get the right remedy. Tania is very good at that.
It is so nice to have my feet back and like them again. I am going to buy some nice new sandals for summer. I used to hide my feet and the foot that it started on was always swollen. I am thrilled.
