Diet

It is wonderful to be psoriasis free after 25 years. No drugs., no supplements just an alkaline diet and adding 1/8tsp of baking soda to my 4 glasses of daily drinking water. I have had clear skin for 3 years and counting

hello valarie, alkaline diet is not eating foods with preserves,additives etc like packet items , jars, tins, good veggies and salads no tomatoes or peppers or potatoes unless sweetpotatoes,no dairy at all including eggs butter,milk, cheeses , no sauces including gravys,dressings ketchups and mayo, junk foods, fast foods, friedfoods, pizzas,bolognese and currys etc ,caffeine,smoking ,sugar,sweetners,citrus fruits,alcahol,drink plenty of plain water bottled or filtered a day i could go on, i am on a clean diet and have been for 10 months now, it does make a difference, diet/lifestyle changes is a choice, some changes in diet/lifestyle is better than none but, it is a choice a choice for everyone i wish you well :)

Welcome back! Great to hear you're still clear and seeing results from your alkaline diet. Do you eliminate anything completely from your diet, or do you eat any foods as long as the balance is heavily in favour of the high alkaline foods?

Hi all,
I found eating 80% alkaline foods and 20% acidic foods until my psoriasis was in control.. then going 60/40.. which I continue to do.

I just choose the acidic foods I can't live without to make up my 40%.

Also I eliminated all sugar and dairy... this made a huge difference.. I had psoriatic arthritis in my ankles... within just a couple of weeks of eliminating sugar.. my PSA subsided... now it is completely gone...

I know we all hate diets... I was a sugar junkie.. .. little did I know I was feeding my psoriasis.. ..

Please check out my blogs for tips, recipes.. and tried and true tips for clearing your psoriasis... It's free and it's the healthy alternative to clear skin... just google my name

Hi John, Great news you are healing so well. Yes.. I have been a member here for some time... I, too, try and pass on what has worked for me.

Psoriasis is an awful skin condition.... finding a healthy way to clear my skin was a huge relief...

Don't know if you have seen the movie "That sugar film" - it changed my life and started me on the path to learning more...

Happy 2018... and a year of clear skin..

I suffered from the pain and embarrassment of plaque Psoriasis for over 25 years... I tried everything from quartz crystals (yeah really!) to tar and vitamin D ointments to every drug imaginable- my social life and love life suffered along with me.
