I'm most happy when I'm plucking weeds in my gardens. I'm a sun worshiper. I've had psoriasis since I was born and usually it's mild unless stressed.
I tried the ketogenic diet too but only for a few weeks. Since I can’t eat too many eggs, avocados and seeds, or else I end up with digestive issues, it was not for me. I do take ginger capsules for internal inflammation (1200 mg/day) and turmeric, drink a lot of water and rarely consume sugar. My P on my body is never itchy but the P on my scalp always is. I wonder why?!
For me the solution is sunbathing, not something I’m able to do during the winter in Canada. I’ve tried the elimination diet and only found a bit of intolerance with dairy. So I now eat bread and drink red wine with happiness! Stress is also a trigger so I gave up coffee which makes me jittery. I use a lot of creams (mostly aloe based) during the winter to keep skin lubricated. It’s a frustrating disease because it’s hard to know what to do and each person is different. Try to listen to what your body is communicating to you because ultimately our skin is talking to us and telling us that something we’re doing/eating/drinking/breathing is not good for our health. Good luck Courtney!
So sorry for your loss Ashley. Life will never be the same without your loving husband but you will go on. My husband lost his son at 14 years old. I’ve always been thankful that he was still able to enjoy life even though his heart has suffered so much. Your skin will improve with time. Try not to think about it too much. Hard I know but it’s a vicious circle. Try to do something every day that makes you feel happy.
I had a reaction to eating lobster the other day. Woke up in the middle of the arm with my skin all itchy, still have some spots on my arms too Rosey but they're slowly going away. I did use that magic Chinese cream (which supposedly has steroids in it although they claim it doesn't) and my aloe vera cream. So I guess no more lobsters for me!
