Sasha Sadly no after 25 years of 75% of my skin being scales I did not think for a second I would ever be free from the condition.
05 Dec 09:19
I'm so happy for you. Worked for me too!
05 Dec 10:12
Woo hoo Victor!! 🎉🎉🎉
05 Dec 13:13
Okay, were you on any other Prescription medication or vitamins with the biologic? And what was your diet like?
05 Dec 14:10
Yes! Brilliant news victor
05 Dec 14:14
I am so happy for you!! I hate to be negative, but are you sure?? I couldn't count the times that I thought I finally found something that worked....only to discover I was just having a natural ebb of the the disease. The "ebb and flow" has made it so difficult to find a solution. I have been on a biologic for 6 months and recently changed to a new one. It helped for 1 week, but now it is worse than it ever has been. Does it get worse before it gets better? ( I am so very new to this group! I am glad I found it.)

Welcome CarolElaine to our family. We are all different on a different journey. I never did biologics and found healing for all my autoimmune diseases with diet/lifestyle/mind reset/exercise/positivity/Faith. Lots of things. We are lucky to choose.
05 Dec 15:19
A lot of people have talked about how diet has helped. Where do I begin??? What kind of diet?
05 Dec 15:28
No more steroids no special diet - just an injection at home once a fortnight. Life changing folks cannot name the drug on here and apparently different biologics work differently for different people but after 25 years this is life changing. I have been seriously suicidal in the past with the extent of my psoriasis but all that negativity has been turned around and the only emotion I feel about my skin is gratitude x
05 Dec 15:46
CarolElaine diet isn't the quick fix. It's a process and for me, the route I chose. Honestly, I would start in January, after the Holidays, with a cleanse/reboot and if you want the one I did you can private message me. This is not the month to try to eliminate any foods. You can, however, start by living in the present moment, maybe journalling and getting things out of your head onto paper. Listen to some great, uplifting music. That's free and will help with the renewing of the mind. Diet, I am happy to share with you as well.
05 Dec 16:25
Will you continue taking it to maintain clearance or stop and see what happens?

Victor I'm not 100% free, but I've been on biologics for 10 yrs. & have no desire to stop. The only issue I have being 100% is knees & elbows! It is the happiest I've been since 1977 :)
05 Dec 23:50
CarolElaine I have been on 3 variations of biologics since 2004 & the 1 I'm on now I've been on since 2007 & I'm not looking back, what works for me might not work for everybody.

Good for you Victor.
11 Dec 15:30
Victor can you please message me the name of the biologic. This fellow up the street has psoriasis really bad. Horrible on his face and says it's worse on his body. I mentioned that someone on this site has had great success with biologics. Thanks.
