I've been dealing with my Psoriasis for 28 years now. I am always looking for naturopathic ways to treat my P.

Recently tested positive for H. Pylori, a bacteria that lives in 2\3rds of the population and can cause stomach\gerd problems, as well as Leaky Gut type symptoms. Onward and upward, feeling better everyday after a rough 2 years.

Just played a fabulous NYE. It's amazing how fast a biologic can work. I'm still only 9 weeks of treatment and other than some shadows of my previous flare, I'm almost clear. After angry, red flares over 60-70% of your body, it's a huge relief.

Had another appointment with my newer Dermatologist yesterday. Very happy with my clearing, but as usual oblivious to any of my talk of diet and current infection I'm treating. (Candida) SMH

Hello all you Flaym folks. The new biologic I started almost 6 weeks ago has been amazing. Within a couple of days my BP and heart rate improved, and it has continued to improve. My psoriasis let up a lot! From 70% angry red to shades of healing.

I have a new diagnosis and interesting connection to my psoriasis. Had an upper GI with endoscopy yesterday and it showed a Candida infection in my esophagus and some shallow ulcers in my duodenum. I'll add updates. Time to get rid of extra Candida

Just took my last start-up dose of a new biologic (to me). Thankfully, I had almost immediate relief to my erythrodermic flare. My resting heartbeat came down about 10 BPM and the edema in my ankles retreated. Already a lot less red on the whole.

Have any of you heard anything about one's experience with fasting? I watched a very interesting documentary last night. Studies that were done behind the Iron Curtain during the Cold War. Not much info ever made it out to the rest of the world.

I have my first shipment of a new Med arriving Tuesday. Been enduring a severe flare for many months now. I'm curious to see how much clearing I achieve, and how quickly. With Winter here I'm very happy I am finally getting a treatment again.

I truly enjoy the Worldwide community of the internet. I'm seeing folks from Tasmania to Uganda to North America, Europe and many points in between on Flaym. Fascinating! Encouraging and emotionally therapeutic, as well. Great stuff everyone.

I am going to be starting a new biologic soon. Spent the last 18 months without any systemic treatment, except for diet improvements. Should be finally getting some relief. I've been covered at 50% or more for the past few months. Itchy Madness.

Just confirmed I have a NYE music Gig. Very happy about that. Kinda a staple over the past 30 years of playing professionally. Music is a great healer for me, and it always helps me keep my spirits up.

Dog sitting 6 month old Hank again today. What a wonderful way to focus on something else besides my currently bad, Bad, BAD psoriasis. Not a real fan of my options, but I'm seeing a new Dermatologist on Oct. 31st. Should find some relief.

Has anyone had abnormal blood work due to your autoimmune disorder? I've researched it some and found that platelet levels can be affected by autoimmune disorders, as well as other things.

Happily dog sitting a 5 month old puppy named Hank for a friend today. Does wonders to lift my spirits after a night with little sleep due to psoriasis inching badly. Only 2 more weeks till I see a new dermatologist. Much needed.

Psoriasis, the bane of my existence. Hello all, I am about to return to systemic treatment after a brief period of spontaneous remission. I am currently covered over about 30% of my body, mostly arms, back, and lower legs. Glad I found this site.
