nobody responded to this. people think you can fix your condition with alternatives. it doesn't work. biologics yes, gives you relieve now, but what about tomorrow? just change your diet and don't be lazy about it. I haven't had pasta in weeks and my itch went. If youreé looking for an alternative then I'm sorry it won;t work,
This is a pondering issue...I mean, taking into consideration our immune system, shall we take extra care? I'm still okay. been taking immune boosters like mad but if we get sick? all I can say is... ladies and gents... lets keep our immune system up okay? drink your immune boosters and lets stay healthy.
Hi Roxanne. Don't feel bad at all. It is not your fault. Instead of feeling guilty you can be there and support your son and help him to understand the condition and how to deal with it. Introduce him to Flaym and let him read the posts of what to eat and what meds to use. This is an early stage for him and he can learn how to control it by starting to learn what food and drinks to have. I know some do not agree with the diet change but it helps a lot and it becomes a lifestyle, something he will benefit from it at the end of the day. Good luck to you both :)
yes that's good that you stopped it. if medication makes you sick then its better to just stop it as it might trigger something else. your P will get worse because your body is stressed. talk to your GP and ask if he has something else you can take? Sorry I did not see your previous post so I'm not sure what the meds are for? Good luck and I do hope you get better G. :)
well, my thoughts on this is, the easiest way to depopulate the earth is with vaccine shots. Some people do not want to give their babies the shot and what happens then? baby gets measles and die. Etc etc etc.
We live in a cruel world, we need the bad to survive for a while. Our bodies are so used to the vitamins we take in pill form or injections so what happens when that stops? you get sick. so how did the Neanderthals survive? they lived from plants, fish and meat and still they were strong but life span was till about 35 years. They never got a shot or anything to prevent a bad illness. Stronger immune system perhaps. Luckily some have Neanderthals DNA so we can fight off the flue. Okay I'm derailing now, but yes, we are all brainwashed by pharma companies and I have to add that some do care about making life easier to those who suffer.
awww G. I'm sorry to hear this but hey, chin up. Children are precious and they only see the good in things. Words may effect us more but we should start looking through the eyes of a child and see what they see then only we will see what we need to see and not what we want to see. It hurts inside when people or even children make a remark but you just stay strong and positive and because of you, the girl will grow wiser in things she see in others. :)
Hey Gary. well if that's the case then I'll permanently be on steroid ointment lol. Yes its sad to know that P can take away your zest for life, outdoor spirit etc but we just need to learn how to manage it. See what works for us. I'm using a coal tar based cream - coal tar mixed with aqueous cream. Been using it for many years. My P is looking great but I also had to change my lifestyle. Eating healthy. Thing is I can't eat too much of brussel sprouts and cauliflower as its gassy and when I'm bloated my P starts to itch. My P improved when I started drinking and eating turmeric. It does help.
Yes I'm sure that will be a worry to most especially when both have P. Thing is, it sometimes skip a generation or two. We are all scared that our kids may get it but I pray my daughters doesn't. They are now 25 & 27 and I have a grandchild of 4. They haven't shown any signs of P except for my daughter of 25. she got a few spots for a couple of weeks but it went away quick so I'm not sure it is P as it did flake or itch or anything. could be an allergic reaction to something she ate or a skin product? My parents did not have P nor did their parents or grandparents but two of my uncles had Psoriasis and now myself, my brother and my sister but mine was the most severe. My brother and sister drink beer. YES BEER lol. and their P is gone. they might sometimes get a spot or two but never bad. None of their children have Psoriasis. I got married and my husband doesn't have kids. Luckily he doesn't want any either and maybe its because he is scared the child will be born with it like himself? so yes, I do understand where you're coming from and I would be too if I didn't have children but there is a big chance that the child may not get P? this is a choice everyone has to make unfortunately as we do not want our child to go through what we do sometimes. :)
Hi Claire, I just take a teaspoon turmeric powder and mix it with my water. not a heaped spoon though. But now I only drink it maybe 3 times a week as my skin is good and I can't complain about inflammation. :)
Elizabeth, definitely, dairy products aren't good for us but I do like cheese once in a while. I do drink milk in my coffee as well. Well you should consult your doctor first before drinking turmeric if you have other problems too. turmeric is great for detoxing the liver and keeps inflammation at bay, but, what works for me, might not work for others :)
I've read that recent studies continue to examine the relationship between the two. One study showed that children with psoriasis were at much greater risk of being obese, while another showed being overweight at 18 increased the risk of developing psoriatic arthritis. Research also shows that losing weight can improve psoriatic disease symptoms and help make treatments more effective. - This is the truth. I was very overweight a couple of years ago and my P was worse than ever. Since I've started to loose weight, my P got better and inflammation wasn't as bad because I changed my lifestyle around food and exercises. Unfortunately, we can't just go and eat what we like the whole time. we have to pay attention to our body.
Ed, I'm sorry. Yes your mom is too old to change now I do agree with you but hey, keep your chin up and stay positive. You are doing good and not long you'll be great. :)
Elaine, how sweet of you to say that thank you. Oh, I can be very rude and obnoxious too but we are all in the same boat with our condition and it breaks my heart to see how some suffer because of others. We are here to support each other and I have learned so much from a lot of Flaymers and their advice has made me a stronger person more sincere person. Thank you :)
