Psoriasis, the bane of my existence. Hello all, I am about to return to systemic treatment after a brief period of spontaneous remission. I am currently covered over about 30% of my body, mostly arms, back, and lower legs. Glad I found this site.
Please don't include specific medical product brand names or external links.

Keep the head up and stay positive and always remember to watch your stress levels and be kind to yourself.
This should help.

Thanks for the kind words. It's been a challenging year. Had a hemorrhagic stroke back in February. I also, haven't had much in the way of psoriasis treatments available for about 18 months. Still kickin', though.

Timothy (Tim) glad you found this site as well. It's such a great place to find out lots of different solutions. I have other autoimmune diseases as well and consider myself healed. Most of what I did was diet/lifestyle changes. You'll learn a ton here. Welcome.

Hi Tim, leaky gut plays a part in the severity of the condition, it may help to speak wit an nutritionist probiotics and kefir help I find this can have a positive effect on my skin, also I eat little red meat, lamb is best, as this has a proven inflammatory effect.

Hi Eileen. Thanks for the response. I've always wondered about Leaky Gut, as I've had stomach trouble since I was about 7 or 8. Still have some reflux issues. Currently trying apple cider vinegar, which helps. And I already limit red meat to about once a week, staying away from sugar (I don't drink Pop, haven't for most of my adult life, just the rare can of something.) I have been trying everything from Curcumin to wiping out nightshades, to limiting dairy and cheese. Most my diet is chicken or pork, basmati rice, 2 cups of coffee/day, homecook most everything, no fast food, very little fried food. I do make a banana & frozen fruit with low-sugar yogurt smoothies every other day. All in all my diet is pretty good, but always looking for that magic touch that may truly heal at the source.

Tim, have you researched any companies that are natural/organic and have non toxic products! They might help with your psoriasis issues especially since you seem to have the diet down. I changed my skin amd hiar crae and also my household cleaning products and my psoriasis completely cleared. I was completely surprised and ha dto apologize to my friend for telling her that the samples she gave me wouldnt make a difference for me 😞. There are 3 different companies that I deal with and have become obsessed with because some of the products smell so good, but at least its all positive!!
