Love that John! I'll be flakin' through the weekend with this in mind. In the middle of a flare (again) - this testing foods is a perilous job! But someone's got to do it ✌️

Hello Sarah, i have given up the obsession with it but i choose to stay with my usual healthy psoriatic diet,This is a part of my life but having a few bad foods now and again is okay,some people use the term suffering with psoriasis and some people do suffer i know , i am not a sufferer and havnt been one for a lot of years,psoriatic arthritis yes i have suffered with that over the years now ,I dont suffer with psoriasis as its not plagued on my mind 24/7 and i am not covered in it not since a child and through my teens anyway , its a nuisance i have always thought of it with me that way for years now, i am sorry about your flare Sarah, sounds like a lot of work food testing though yes, someones got to do it,i hope all comes out good out of it thank you :)

IDA @ida1

what would you say is the worst foods for P?

Sarah @sarahuk

Ah John, thank you, wise words as always, I appreciate it! Actually I'm almost done with the testing now really. Just nightshades and gluten left to go. I have already done so many! Edible legumes, eggs, fruit and seed spices, nuts, seeds, cocoa, dairy, legumes and non-gluten grains all under my belt already. Now just the last 2 big hitters to go! IDA, so far from all of the above, the legumes and non-gluten grains are the biggest flares I've had. I have also had itching and redness from random stuff that I couldnt have predicted. Avocados, strawberries, cassava flour, banana chips, smoked mackerel (it turns out these are all actually a group of high histamine foods, so I have learnt I have low histamine tolerance!). Hope this helps IDA!

Thank you Sarah, its summer so, i feel i need to let my hair down a bit this year, i was so strict last year and a bit miserable with my obsession and found it didnt make any difference in the winter me being this strict, skin does get slightly better but not huge, if iwas covered in psoriais i may see a huge difference, if i was covered and to the point i want to top myself, i would be over strict to the point of being a full time hermit :) i dont want and need that life, i am single and want to live the dream a little haha,i will stay with what is good as i believe in good health for sure and better joints,i am so grateful to people that helped me in the past here and i will be sensible of course, you are very wise too Sarah and look a pretty lady,l am sure you will let us know how you get on, i look forward to hear results from you and everyone here with positive results i hope, thank you :)

thanks, John, will try to get to an allergist soon, in the meantime, I really eat most of the stuff except once in a while Pasta or rice. Have you tried [...] on your skin I heard it helps with the inflammation. Hope your feeling better..

Well said John! 💙 Being good to ourselves is so important. One thing I try hard to teach my boys when diffiicult situations arise is to Own it, learn from it, grow from it and then move on from it. Easier said than done in moments, but I am hoping that them learning that as well as self love at a young age, it will be helpful for them later in life.
