I am a Nurse Practitioner in a busy hospital. I have had PA since 12 years old (so a really long time) & psoriasis since a young adult. I am at peace with my condition which although a nuisance, hard work & painful could be far worse.

I am going to get this off my chest before I go. This forum is about supporting each other & offering tips or commenting on experience to other psorasis sufferers. What I have witnessed recently is certain individuals promoting their own ideas on diet & going so far as guilt tripping members by implying that they have not got rid of their psorasis because they have done nothing & by trying the diets they will have healed skin!.
This isn't a one off post from them ...it is continous. The advice is not professional even though this person calls himself a body engineer (no formal qualifications & as a QUALIFIED professional health care working in the NHS I find this frightening). The advice is anecdotal with no research to back it up. If curing psorasis was as easy as changing your diet ......why & earth do we all suffer.
Sadly psorasis is NOT that easy to get rid of. We will all have periods of respite & periods of exacerbation. It is NOT your fault & there is no easy fix. With support & some medical intervention...we can all lead happy & fulfilling lives.
People....I know you are desperate & as a fellow sufferer I realise what impact it can have on your lives but be objective with the advice you find on here. Remember a few years ago when we had deaths in the UK from Chinese herbal remedies. Things aren't always harmless as they appear. Please do not change your lives or your diets on the advice of one unqualified person. Do your research this.
Good luck to you all in your journey & watch out for those who would prey on the desperation of other suffers. Not everyone on here has your best interests at heart. Most of all be healthy ...eat well & regularly exercise & more over NO guilt.
