It made me laugh Lindakay... which is a good thing. Hope this makes you smile...
Was in Lidl at the checkout the other day when I noticed an elderly lady in front of me bearing blotchy legs..I leaned towards her and whispered ‘ I do admire your courage , is that psoriasis?’ She turned with a big smile and we had a lovely chat. She then went on to say ‘you know only intelligent people get psoriasis’and I said ‘can you say that a bit louder so my husband behind me can hear’ and she did. We left the supermarket with not only food to eat but food for the soul.....
I must say I saw a new one this time and he was very on the ball. He changed all of my skin creams and shampoos body washes. He put me in with this light treatment of which im on 15 session out of 30. He also made a referral for me to see a rheumatologist. So i couldn't fault him for effort. The light treatment is curing me this time and I've also got it on my face this time so i fear I have a worse flare up this time and I'm getting worried my face is going to stay horrible like this 😓😓
I asked this because I wanted to offer what might have been a final cure for my psoriasis and may also cure others. Many people in industrialized nations are deficient in three important nutrients. These are D3, magnesium, and K2. The reasons for the deficiencies are varied. For D3, we spend inadequate time in the sun due to our jobs and overuse of sun screens. For magnesium, it has been stripped from our soils through over farming. The vegetables and fruits that were once rich in magnesium contain far less now. K2 is even more elusive as it comes from the fats of grass fed animals. Most of our animals are no longer grass fed so the animals don't produce K2 and then we don't consume it. Eggs would normally contain high concentrations, but very few do anymore unless they are truly pastured. Organ meats from grass fed animals would contain a lot of K2, but who eats organ meats in western societies. It's also prevalent in Gouda and Brie cheese, but many psoriasis sufferers stay away from dairy. So unless you make a conscious effort to get K2 or supplement, you likely don't get any. In the 1930's, Dr, Weston A Price discovered many diseases prevalent in western cultures to be rarely present in non-Western cultures. He isolated something he called the X-factor that was prevalent in health non-western societies. It took 60 years for scientist to identify this as K2 and to understand it's role in disease prevention, Research is still underway. In short here is what happens. D3 is essential in helping your body absorb calcium and phosphorus. D3 needs magnesium to metabolize, so D3 without magnesium is useless. Then the next critical thing is K2. K2 regulates where the calcium goes like a traffic cop. With K2, the calcium goes to building strong bones and teeth where it is intended. Tooth decay can even be reversed. Without K2, calcium builds up in unwanted places, like your arteries, skin, and kidneys. This is potentially why psoriasis suffers get flares from high calcium products like dairy. Without K2 directing the calcium, it goes to their skin ad other undesirable places.
Psoriasis plaques are known to contain high concentrations of calcium. A, C, and Zinc are also important, but people are not as deficient in those and a good daily vitamin will cover you there. For anyone suffering from psoriasis, consider start taking all three orally. And if you can stand it, spray Magnesium Oil (Magnesium Chloride) directly on your psoriasis. It's going to burn, so dilute if needed to the point you can take it. Or you can dissolve magnesium chloride crystals or Epsom Salts into a bath and soak. But if you can't, just continue the oral supplements along with a good daily vitamin. This has cured some people including me. I am getting MK-4 K2 through a variety of sources, but it may just easy for others to take a MK-7 K2 supplement to start out and get things moving quickly. Double the dose if you like, you can't really overdose on K2. There is no risk in trying this approach and has potential to significantly reduce if not cure your psoriasis. Since many foods no longer contain the magnesium they once did, a magnesium supplement is probably best. I'm taking a 3 in 1 and also use a product called Calm containing magnesium citrate. I also use magnesium oil spray. Same for D3, supplement if you don't have time get enough sunshine. If this is going to work for you, I would expect you to see significant improvement within 30-45 days. I saw my last remaining psoriasis disappear in less than 30 days. I previously was in significant remission from Kombucha with turmeric, ginger and pineapple juices, but I had a half dozen pencil eraser sized patches on my knees, a persistent dime size patch on the back of my left leg, and two toenails that remained deformed with nail bed separation. This discovery took it all way for me. I hope it helps for some of you.
Thank you Bev.i think maybe i just not put anything there, think i am making it worse to be honest,now its quite hot, the sweating dont help, think the lemon set it off, lemons fine elsewhere but not the bum ,i healed it right up last year, didnt have it there , this year its there, think i just made it worse by rubbing it, it was very mild there a while ago,its a nice feeling rubbing it but, after, not good at all, burning starts, could be worse though couldnt it :) thank you :)
Great question Joshua! I am married and so my long term partner is very much aware of my p and how it is part of me and my life, so that is kind of a given for me and I don't have to consider it very much. But I do wonder sometimes how it would be if my relationship were to end and I was back "out there"... how I would fare on the dating scene. And the answer is I really don't know! I guess I feel that my psoriasis would be one thing out of many that I would be apprehensive about... my wobbly bits, my private bits, my looks, my hair, my grooming blah blah blah. But I guess loads of people get like this when dating no matter what they look like and if they have p or not! I always believe that most people have some sort of "health stuff" to worry about and if it isn't p it is something else. Before I met my husband my p was worse than it is now, and I guess I managed to get out there and lure him in with whatever weapons I had, psoriasis and all! But it is hard, no doubt about it 😐
