Psoriatic Arthritis IBS – Do you have a good understanding of these conditions and the connections between them?
The Debilitating Symptoms of IBS
Often times, Irritable Bowel Syndrome can cause some disabling symptoms such as consistent diarrhea, constipation, dizziness, etc. It can also cause pain in the muscles and joints as a result of the histamines that result from the immune system’s defense mechanism against antigens that reach your gut via the Leaky Gut Syndrome.
Process of the Leaky Gut Syndrome
The Leaky Gut Syndrome occurs when the yeast in your gut overgrows beyond normal amounts and mutate to drill holes in your gut. The food particles from the consumed foods, would then enter your bloodstream through these holes. The foods or antigens are seen as a foreign substance and begins to attack them resulting in histamines.
Skin Problems and the Solution
With the yeast overgrowth and the histamines being present, this can quickly result in eczema and/or psoriasis being present. The most important thing to do as a result of these chronic skin conditions, is to keep your skin moisturized at all times. Ensure that you use a thicker type of cream that is considered for extreme dry skin. Use this cream on your body immediately after you dry yourself after taking a shower.
This will keep the moisture in your skin. Similarly, if you see that your skin is peeling at any point in time, ensure to keep a container of cream around to re-moisturize the dry areas on your body. In countries where the air is extremely dry, ensure that you keep a closer eye on your skin to prevent it from over-drying.
A Bucket of Problems
For arthritis problems, make sure that you try to keep rigorous activities to a minimum. Take pain medications only when it is truly necessary. It is evidently clear that there is a connection between psoriasis, eczema, arthritis, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. IBS often being the causative factor for all of these conditions.
