What a ray of sunshine Leonie, hello! Great to see you back and see your post today. 3 years of healthy skin, we are all wishing for this! And you have achieved it, so fantastic ✨✨✨ Which of these things do you think is helping you the most? The sugar, dairy, ph balance or sunlight?

Hi Sarah and Michelle... my wonderful "p" friends...
going sugar-sensible got rid of my psoriatic arthritis..and it is a combination of all - that cleared my skin.. I test my ph balance with ph test strips.. gotta stay 7.3 - 7.5..

Hi Michelle, They say you shouldn't put the stick in your mouth.. so I spit on a spoon and dip the stick in... I find my saliva gives a more accurate reading.. but watch what you eat just before you test..

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.
