Just before Nitika Chopra was diagnosed with psoriasis at age 10, while her family still thought it might be eczema, she remembers her uncle saying: “I really hope it’s not psoriasis, because if it is, her life is really going to be affected by it.” That moment was a premonition of what was to come, of the 15 years she would spend battling the crippling disease, of the additional diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis that came when she was in college, the pain was so bad that sometimes she couldn’t dress herself. But it was also a challenge that Nitika would take up later in her life, overcoming both external and internal challenges to straddle the line between healthcare and wellness and find a true path to health. Hear her inspiring story here and how functional medicine played a role in her reduction of symptoms, and when she realized she needed medication for some time before she could tackle full healing.
