Proud father of six, five girls. Found this group and hope to help others while getting a better understanding of my immune system and what I can do to to stop the spreading of my psoriasis
Thanks for the clarity Steve. Perhaps not necessary as Susan said, but indeed helpful to the newbies trying to go down natural the path that you both have walked...Thanks to both of you for still being here and contributing...Hope I can get to the same place and that I am a big enough person to continue to give as you both do.
I did a trial last spring for a generic version of a existing cream that is already on the market. Obviously the generic version, if approved, will be sold at a much more reasonable price. I believe trials like these are a requirement to get the necessary approvals. I thought it would be smart to do, because if it helped me, at least I would find out if that particular type of cream helped me. We all know here that what works for some does not work for others. In these trials, you have a control(placibo) and the tested product(medicine). As a participant, you do not know at least initially if you are even trying the medicine. I was one of the control subjects so I had no positive or negative results. It did pay a few hundred bucks for very little time spent, just did not help my condition. Hopefully my participation eventually helps others. I will find the name of the company and the name of the product they were trying to offer a generic option for.
Prior to joining this super positive group, didn't really have a support system except that I look at Jon Morrow(owns smarter blogger and can only move his face), his success, and what he overcomes on a daily basis.... I don't need any more positive motivation then his story provides..... just need the support here to make the obvious necessary lifestyle changes as my psoriasis had gotten worse over time

My personal experience suggests that my body is out of balance and begging for me to repair. Sleep(rest) in our society is one of the things I believe most of us could benefit from and first on your list. Think about the things that you didn't put your body as a kid, I will leave the list to you. The tough part is changing, because without lifestyle changes my belief is that all other treatment is probably temporary.
Just found this group a couple of weeks ago and everyone is fantastic. I want to find more time in my day to contribute because everyone is so awesome. I have avoided my psoriasis for 5 years or so because it was mostly an inconvenience. It has progressively gotten worse...time to address and help others keep from making the errors I have committed to date.
