Thanks for coming back and checking out my new case study. We’re going to talk about a lady called Claire today. This is not her real name, of course. Claire is 59, which is not her real age, but I can assure you it’s a very real case. Claire came to see me some time ago now, inability to lose weight, shocking psoriasis, very bad psoriasis. I remember all around the neck, the scalp and around the ears, on the arms and on the elbow areas. Claire also had flatulence, bloating, indigestion, reflux, continual sore.
Throat, pins and needles, fluid retention, high cholesterol, sweet cravings, itching, also arthritis. I think there was a touch of psoriatic arthritis in this case. The patient had her gall bladder removed when she was in her 20s, just after her first baby was born. Psoriasis really developed in her 40s, so she’s had quite a lot of different stresses in her life. She’s also taking an acid blocker, one of the H2 antagonists, acid blocking medications that stop reflux, which is not uncommon after gall bladder removal. If you have had your gall bladder out and have reflux, you need.
To take digestive enzymes because it will make a huge difference. In Claire’s case, it certainly helped. Always hungry, she says here. Eating protein does help, but love sweets. The big thing with Claire was really the diet change. This lady is 126 kilograms, so that’s 250 pounds, quite a large person. People who are that large who have psoriasis often have sharpening psoriasis, so they can have really bad inflammation because of their weight. People who are obese, often have much higher rates of inflammation, blood sugar disorders, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, everything just crashes with these people. Think of it.
Case 26 Claire Overweight No Gallbladder Psoriasis
Like having a fourcylinder car and then putting six or seven 200pound people in it, you’re putting massive stress on this vehicle. Because that’s what you’re doing to a person’s frame when you carry a lot of weight. You’re putting massive stress on the joints, the heart, the liver, the bowel every part of the body is under massive stress with a lot of weight. People who weigh a lot less have a lot less stress when it comes to their organs and metabolic function. Bigger people get punished pretty badly.
It’s not easy for people to lose weight. Dieting doesn’t help in the majority of cases. It’s a waste of blooming time trying to get people to eat less food or change the way they eat. It’s really a lifestyle approach that will help people. People have to make changes on multiple fronts. You’re going to find people who specialize in weight loss some will target the mind, the emotional set. They’re all about motivation. You can think yourself thin and all this sort of crap. And then you get all these diet gurus and diet priests out.
There who say, Nope. You can eat yourself thin. And then you get the exercise gurus, You can exercise yourself thin. The problem is none of these guys talk together. They all try to make a million dollars with their own websites and forget about the fact that the only way people are going to lose weight and maintain that weight loss is to look at a holistic concept. Every person needs to lose weight depending on the way they think about life, the way they think about diet. The only way you really make change in your.
Life is to have a PMF, a primary motivating factor. So in Claire’s case, her primary motivating factor was to want to live long enough, the quality of life, for her grandchildren. And that’s what I found out with talking to her. She didn’t care. She was in a fantastic stable relationship. Husband loved her if she was 100 pounds or 300 pounds, so she had a fantastic marriage. That was working out quite well for her. She had a good relationship with her children, but the children were worried about mom and worried about mom getting so.
Big. Very worried about her because she might not live long enough to enjoy spending time with her grandchildren, so that was here PMF. And I tapped into that big time. I’ve had multiple consultations with Claire now. We’ve had fantastic weight loss with this lady just by gently engaging her in making changes in how she eats and thinks about food, getting out there, small amounts of walking has now resulted in large amounts of walking, etc., you know how it goes. So the big challenge here is no gall bladder. Gall bladder removal.
For a lot of people can spell lots of bowel problems, lots of liver congestion, lots of burping, lots of farting, lots of reflux, lots of sick feeling, lots of weight gain, inability to breakdown fatsoluble vitamins, the list goes on and on. When the gall bladder is gone, it’s problematic for a lot of people. So we have to do a work around with the diet. We have to look at a liver friendly diet. We need to look at foods high in natural enzymes. We need to really change the way we think about eating and the kind of foods we eat.
Processed foods are no good for people with no gall bladder. Don’t you make the mistake of thinking you can eat canned or packaged foods without a gall bladder you can’t do that anymore. You can, but you’re not going to feel good. And, of course, the bowel becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast infection, and that’s exactly what this woman had. She had huge amounts of farting, bloating, indigestion. When the gall bladder is removed, it’s easy for the cholesterol to go up. And, of course, with that kind of weight issue, you’re going to get high blood pressure. And that’s exactly.
What this woman had. The combination of high blood pressure and high cholesterol is disastrous. That’s like having a combination of no income and high gambling and high drinking. You might as well put a gun to your head. This is a heart attack waiting to happen. And I spelled it out to her and she cried. And it hit her hard. But sometimes you have to hit people below the belt before they make change. You’ve got to kick them right between the eyes. I don’t do it upfront with people. I do it gently and slowly. I’ll pinch them.
Before I kick them. But the thing is I like helping people to make change. I can’t do it for them they’ve got to do it themselves. And Claire has made change. When you make change, your life changes. Everything changes. And then when everything changes, your confidence goes up. Your selfesteem goes up and your quality of life improves. And I call that the upward spiral. You’re going up and up and up. Because I see too many patients on the downhill spiral. They feel sick. They feel fat. They feel unsexy.
They feel unloved. They hate their life. They look at themselves in the mirror and they just hate themselves. And having that negative selftalk pulls you down and down and it makes you walk to the fridge and grab another piece of bread or peanut butter, another bar of chocolate, and another can of beer because you feel like crap. And those are the people that end up with a lot of guilt, a lot of weight, and a lot of health problems. So don’t you be one of those people. Remember, change comes from you wanting the change.
