Case Study – Stress

Mr S, a city worker, came to see me because he felt stressed.

His presented with psoriasis, a chronic, non contagious autoimmune disease which affects the skin and joints. It commonly presents as red scaly patches on the skin. Red, lizard type flaky skin covered his eyebrows which by now was devoid of any hair.

A detailed health history revealed that Mr S had suffered with Rheumatoid Arthritis (a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder which often affects the joints) in his very early twenties. This affected his knee joints such that he could not walk unaided for a lengthy period of time.

He suffers from seasonal Hayfever (allergic rhinitis triggered by the pollens of specific seasonal plants) which renders him incapable of normal activity due to swollen, watery eyes, excessive mucus and laboured breathing all through the Spring season.

A dietary history revealed a particular fondness for certain foods.

For further in depth investigation Mr S agreed to an Oxidative Stress Analysis.

After a reasonable period of time of incorporating an agreed specific diet, supplementation plan and introduction of gentle stress reduction lifestyle approaches, Mr S noticed significant improvement in his health. His eyebrows had grown back and his overall capacity to deal with the normal stresses of his work life had improved considerably.

He says: “It was really good to see how some very simple changes made such a difference to my condition. I’d pretty much resigned myself to living with it as I’d tried other avenues before, without much success.”
