Itch, diet

I didn't want to try biologics because I was afraid, but now I have to because phototherapy is not working and I feel like I'm going to lose my mind sometimes with the itching everywhere.

It's the lesser of two evils

If you don't already, you need to find a way to get a lot of turmeric into your diet. It could cure your psoriasis and also help with your Celiac disease.

Thank you Steve. I keep hearing that so
I am definitely going to try it.

I juice it and add it to kombucha in the second ferment along with pineapple and ginger juice. It's delicious and very refreshing. I drink two 16 oz bottles a day and I am almost completely psoriasis free now. I am also messing with making kombucha with galangal, lemongrass, and pomegranate, all believed to be effective in treating psoriasis.

What is kombucha?

Hi Peg, Kombucha is a probiotic fermented beverage. I make my own, but it is also available in some grocery and health food stores.

Thanks Steve. Will have to look into that

Hi peg, I think the additives I use, juiced turmeric, ginger, and pineapple are more critical to curing psoriasis than kombucha itself. Kombucha provides a culture to ferment those juices and make them more bioavailable..

Steve this sounds great. I definitely have to try. At this point I am willing to try anything. Someone told me to try the Aloe Vera plant and mix the inside of it with 100% pure Avocado oil. Rub it on my skin and it is supposed to help with the itching and to clear the skin. Like I said, I'm willing to try.

Biologics arent even touching my psoriatic arthritis issue. Ive been trying to make better choices with diet but its so hard when you spent your life eating "whatever, whenever". ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜–
