...feeling frustrated Terri @terri1029

Itch, coping, treatment

Hello, I recently moved cross country and got a new job, am waiting til my insurance kicks in and am sorely missing my injections. Pain (inflammation) is now returning and I'm struggling. Just wanted to say hi, pain, flakes and all.

Hi Terri. I drink a glass of turmeric every morning to prevent inflammation. I also make sure I eat anti inflammatory food. The turmeric works very well. You can buy the tablets at your local chemist or you can use the powder like I do. I use half a tsp and mix it with boiled water and down it immediately (after it has cooled down) as the taste is horrible (which is why some takes the tablets. lol. But I would say for most effective try the tablets as it provide 400 mg of curcuminoids, while the same amount of turmeric powder (ground herb -- just like the spice) might provide only about 15 mg. I drink the powder as I'm a sucker for pain lol. (I need help!)

Psoriasis doesnt define you, yet I'm always trying to hide it with my hair!
