Have you been plagued with boils, cysts, ingrown hairs, and acne-like bumps that take months to resolve, leave embarrassing scars, and cause considerable pain? Have you been to the doctor, only to leave with a prescription for antibiotics, few answers, and little to no hope? Hidradenitis supprativa (HS) is a poorly understood skin condition that is believed to affect nearly twelve million people in the United States alone. Only a small fraction of those affected have been properly diagnosed, leaving many others to suffer in silence or pursue ill-advised conventional treatment methods that fail to address the cause of this painful condition. Tara Grant, a twenty-year sufferer of HS, has become an underground legend to her Internet community of HS victims by presenting a methodical, self-tested action plan to heal naturally. The centerpiece of her holistic approach rests on the understanding that HS is an autoimmune disorder caused by leaky gut syndrome. With a few simple dietary changes that eliminate certain trigger' foods, you can heal your gut, restore your skin, reclaim your health, and rid yourself of HS symptoms forever. That means no antibiotics, no experimental surgeries, and no more pain, suffering, or confusion.
You will learn to adopt a big picture perspective about disease and dysfunction, and understand how autoimmunity (the body attacking itself in an adverse manner) represents the root cause of many frustrating chronic health conditions. By modifying your diet and other lifestyle habits, you can break free from the suffering, frustration and uncertainty that seems to go hand in hand with autoimmune conditions and skin conditions like HS in particular. Author Tara Grant has synthesized years of research, personal trial and error and cutting edge functional medicine and dietary strategies to give you a simple, do-able action plan to clean up your diet and clean up your skin. The Hidden Plague is a fabulous and comprehensive resource for not just HS specifically, but many other related inflammatory and autoimmune conditions.
