I have a large bottle of vodka to take with me and i will get some diet coke aswell as drinking lager and lime,i will buy sausages/burgers with buns etc, to barbi q, i will take salad as i would anyway in the past so the test will be in normal past conditions? it is an experiment , i will know if i am really food allergy or enviromental with my skin,joints i say diet really helps me, we are all different, its going to be hard going that weekend,tough,hhmmmm hard work :)

john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

I will go back to what i eat on a regular basis which is very healthy as i can do that :) its only for 3 days , it is an experiment to see, i am very happy the way i am at the moment, i dont think there will be any change to be honest, i would just like to know, hopefully the joints will not be affected ? i shall see :)

john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Thank you all, yes i will have lemon in my vodka and coke , drink it and rub it in Clint, sounds good,flake off party sounds great Clint :), i am going camping and thought hard about letting my hair down, i dont get psoriasis bad,, i will take pictures of my skin before and after and see, will i see a difference, i will have the usual sun on my arms and legs but not the rest as i dont display my flakes on my torso etc , LEMONS will be applied as usual,i would just like to know, i still had psoriasis last winter though not as flakey as year before but still same patches as the year before same places. i will go back to eating healthy as usual as i do, thank you all for the luck and i will inform you all :)

Enjoy yourself going off the reservation for three days John. Have a few bacon or sausage butties for me whilst you are at it!! Good luck!!


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Thank you Michelle, Lou and Millionways , well being its more a less summer,if bad foods give me a reaction meaning, skin gets a few more flakes etc then i know diet is affecting my skin for sure, if there is no change then i have to say its all enviromental with me, not saying diet dosnt help my skin, i am sure it does to a degree but is very small in my case , if i was covered in psoriasis i do think i would notice more of a difference with skin as mine is not bad at all and hasnt been for years ,i know mine gets more flakes in winter and summer it improves,i still have a bundle patch on my right side that is clearing up, no sun has got to this accept for 10 minutes though it was fading before that, i think i have hot spots, flake areas that psoriasis likes, seem like same places, be good to know. i am sure 3 days of toxins wont be good for me, i shall see thank you :)


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Ha ha ,thanks pat, i will, i be buying disposable barbi Qs to cook sausages, bacon, maybe some beans etc, it will be cheap living for 3 days ,very much a processed weekend thank you :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Pat
Pat @pat5326

john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Thing is , i dont actually flare, its usually winter it plays up and summer its good, always been that way, i suppose one could say i flare in winter,i dont seem to have days in the summer where my skin gets worse from certain actions generally, i know my hands have been clear for over a year, i used to get small patches on top of them by my thumbs , i will be watching for this, see if any turn up after all that inflammatory food etc, thank you :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Me too John. I flare up in winter only. My hands were clean but now I have a spot on my knuckle. Its not spreading though. I just keep my hands warm and wear gloves.
I hope you dont' get a flare up from all that toxic food your'e going to have. Lucky fish! lol


Peter
Peter @peter5300

Michelle

Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

But one thing is for sure....I'm not eating PORK again. Sheeesh, the pain I had on Monday... or was it Tuesday? Oh my goodness and now I'm getting the goldfish syndrome as well. I think it's the pork people.


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

I see Michelle,one thing i dont go for is pork, i have always looked at it as a dirty meat, i dont know why?i know a lot of Europeans eat this daily as my ex used to, i will be eating pork sausages no doubt when i go camping, see how things are with this , ye pork is dodgy for sure


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

rachel
rachel @wynnegee

Enjoy the weekend John. It's probably less of a stress to go with the flow and let your hair down than be the odd one out. It's nice to join in. You'll probably miss you're usual diet and be glad to get back to it.


Clint

Sarah
Sarah @sarahuk

Good for you John, it might take a while for the effects to come out if they happen at all? It's a great experiment. I think I will do this with a few foods if I really can't tell if I react to them or not during my reintroductions. For me though, that will be stuff like beans and pulses, or coffee, rather than the type of foods you will be experimenting with. It is a goof idea to change it up and see what happens! I will be following your progress posts with great anticipation!


Sarah
Sarah @sarahuk

Clint, "flake off", love it πŸ˜†


Jane

Elaine

Wowser, John!! Well, go for it and let us know!!!!!


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

I will indeed thank you Elaine, its just to find our=t with the skin more than my joints, photos i will take on wednesday and compare a week after my bad eating and drinking
thank you :)


Elaine
Elaine @elaine2018

Okay, would someone please tell me how to use lemon for psoriasis???!!!


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Yes, cut a lemon, maybe a slice off, squeeze onto skin and you can rube the inner skin of the lemon on it and thats it , i cut the top off mine like taking the top off like an egg, i rub and sqeeze it and put it into the fridge for next use :)


Elaine
Elaine @elaine2018

Yay! Thank you, John!!! I've been using an emery board lightly on my skin, then use coconut oil everywhere! I will try anything once! :)


Michelle
Michelle @mishlyn

I do the same Elaine, just rub the lemon right in my skin. I cut it in quarters and use one at a time. Its been amazing. Good Luck with it. When your use an emery board lightly on your skin, does it hurt? I wonder if that would irritate it more?


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Your welcome Elaine,Emery board, sounds drastic ,like getting out the sand paper or wet and dry to rub it down ,smooth it out ,sounds like it would hurt ?
