Treatment

I have just started taking glucosamine and fish oil tablets to help with the P arthritis in my feet. After a couple of weeks, it doesn't seem quite as bad in the morning when I get up. Hope it is not my imagination.

Hi Diane. That is awesome news. I have P arthritis in my thumb and I can feel its spreading. Thank you for sharing. I'm definitely going to try it :)

Hey Diane, glucosamine takes ages to kick in, that's why it seems that it doesn't do much in the beginning. I once stopped taking it because of that reason. Only 2/3 weeks later my symptoms were back completely... Helps a lot for me.

Diane turmeric pills have been proven as effective as arthritis meds - I take 2 before I go to bed - I also take omega 3 fish oil - I preach the gospel of turmeric!

Hi Shawn. What is the most effective. The turmeric pills or the turmeric powder?

I was taking turmeric but it made me have very weird and vivid dreams!

Diane that is soooo weird - I’ve never heard of such. It just proves that not every remedy works for every person. Michelle I was able to reduce overall inflammation with turmeric pills (for me it’s easier as I don’t cook) - the pills I take I buy online - I’m not allowed to send you a link but I’m happy to describe them for you - Turmeric Extract Curcumin C3 Complex 1160 mg per serving with BioPerine - also I encourage you to google - turmeric vs. pharmaceuticals - turmeric has all sorts of benefits - I take two pills before I go to bed - I wake up with zero joint pain! I should mention that I also changed my diet drastically and added other supplements however turmeric is an integral part of the equation!

Glucosamine never helped me much.

Thank you Shawn. I cook a lot (well...every night (because I have grown up daughters with a grandson who never gets hungry! but eat when I dish up. hmpf!)) I ad turmeric to most of my dishes, I even include it in my green salads! lol. strange combination but it helps a lot. I will try the pills as well. I prefer the herbs instead of pills and I always forget to take it when I'm sick. which is never by the way. I'm a very lucky girl. Must the antioxidants I take in once a week 😈

I have weird reactions to all kinds of things. Avocado make me vomit, which is annoying because I quite like it and know it is so good for you. Carrots give me hiccups - not serious I know but when you are out for dinner and you start making sounds which resemble a wattle bird ( an Aussie native) it is a little embarrassing.

Oh dear diane, sorry about this,a wattle bird, i will look on youtube :)

You don't cook Shawn? Do you eat a raw diet with your organic foods?


Shawn
Shawn @EatOrganic

@Sarah - I don't have an entirely raw diet, I do have some cooked things, the extent of my cooking is gluten free toast in the morning, baked sweet potato fries for a treat, or slow roasting walnuts for salads - I've been a vegetarian my entire life and a vegan for almost a year - that explains why I don't do much cooking additionally I've worked in hospitality my entire career - I'm an event sales director - I've been surrounded by food and kitchens for 30 years... in the past I didn't cook because the kitchens were full of every food you could imagine - however I'm no longer indulging in any of the things produced in those kitchen as I now only eat certified organic foods - I explain it like this... instead of spending time cooking, I spend that time going to certain stores for certain items... (I shop at 5 different grocery/health food stores) - there are lots of easy healthy foods and snacks that are certified organic so I do a lot of "grazing" throughout the day - I don't sit down and eat a "balanced meal" per se - like most people, I'm busy and on the go so I eat a handful of pistachios, or almonds, or protein enriched crisps with a little garlic hummus, or a salad with pumpkin seeds and gogi berries, or a handful of frozen raspberries - I've always eaten this way but prior to eating organic I ate junk food and fast food... you know... the typical American diet... a bagel and cream cheese, doritos and cheese pizza - I don't miss any of the junk because I've replaced it with a healthier similar item - e.g. vegan provolone cheese and gluten free tomato basil crackers... it may not be brie and wheat crackers but it's great and satisfies the craving for cheese and crackers - I will say it's easy for me to eat this way because I'm a single person with 2 dogs... I imagine a partnered person with 2 kids would have a more difficult time eating this way as there is an expectation for a family sit-down balanced hot meal.

Oo Shawn that is a new way of eating compared to what I do! It sounds quite exciting actually. I love to hear more about your habits, as I know how much they have helped you bring your psoriasis down to almost nothing. It's amazing!

I love animals, traveling, my children and my grandchildren. My psoriasis is an inconvenience, it doesn't define me or stop me living my life how I want. Live, laugh, love :)
