As a stressed, 40-year-old primary school teacher, Kate succumbed to inflammatory arthritis, later diagnosed as psoriatic arthritis. It seemed like every joint in her body was inflamed and in hindsight, she realised that she had suffered a few previous undiagnosed attacks over the years, but this was the most debilitating. Everything was extremely painful if not impossible; walking, sitting, and even sleeping. She was signed off work for a year. Thankfully with medication, her condition was brought under relative control. Soon after, 15 years ago, and with support from her husband, she embarked on a vegan diet and was able to slash her medication by more than half.

Four years ago she discovered a whole food plant-based (WFPB) diet, and it’s amazing restorative and disease preventing benefits. At last she is completely in remission and medication free.

With a new lease of life, she is an active community member, founder of Hunstanton Community Orchard, graphic designer, ceramicist and community arts provider. She loves cooking and growing vegetables. She is a passionate advocate of plant-based nutrition and exercise, now runs half marathons regularly.

She is beyond thankful that there are plant-based doctors and other health professionals who are championing a WFPB diet so that other people need not go through the torture of psoriatic arthritis and other dreadful health conditions. Kate’s story has been published in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine.
