Treatment, healthcare system, diet
With all these anti-inflammatory foods that we ingest, do you think that they might cancel each other out when using too often together?

Good question Michelle...also what are the possibilities of the body becoming immune to their anti-inflammatory properties.....
18 Jul 13:50
Yes but it's not the body that becomes resistant, rather it is the bacteria responsible for infections that become resistant. :)
18 Jul 13:53
so which means, by using it too often the bacteria becomes immune to it. I guess I should make turns with it so that we can confuse the bacteria. Monday = Turmeric ; Tuesday = Ginger etc etc, then the next week, change the whole ritual to something else.

I've noticed that if I eat a lot of dairy products my psoriasis flares up. Does this happen to anyone else
18 Jul 15:29
I dont know with that, it is a good question though, i just think a little bit of crap food is okay now and again, you body needs a little as it is actually good for you, too much and its bad,we need a little dirt in our bodies so to speak to build resistance, You hear now of parents wrapping their children up in cotton wool and not letting their children get dirty, then their children pick up a bug and they are really ill,I hope i am on the same wave length as i am as battered as a sausage, basically knackerd, :)One of my friends,she says if you eat a bit of dog hair its good builds up resistance etc hhhmmm noooo, rather her than me ,geeeze, shes so wrong haha :)
18 Jul 16:32
Eat dog hair?? Very wrong.
18 Jul 16:50
I know she is wrong, I think she eats dogs hairs?well she said if it ended up in my food i am not bothered, i know some wrong people haha.,i see hair in food i trash it, cant stand it yuk yuk,well she comes camping with us with her boyfriend,i should ask her if her view has changed ? :)
18 Jul 18:07
John. I'm really speechless. Lol. All I can say is ...good luck? And enjoy your camping :)
18 Jul 18:14
i know Michelle,,honestly thats what she said. thank you Michelle,just hope when we are camping she dosnt stick her head in the grass and start eating dirt,though i dont think so
18 Jul 18:20
We were all speechless when she said that Michelle
18 Jul 19:32
Good question Michelle! Who knows?! For me, I think that it wouldn't work like that, but I am not a scientist or nutritionist, and it may well do! I do agree with John for sure that we need a little bit of things in our system to keep all of our enzymes working so that we can still manage to breakdown foods that get into our system. But I just think the more anti-inflammatory the better, and the less inflammatory the better. Simple as that for me right now!
18 Jul 20:00
Mmm! For now all I am taking is Turmeric, even though you have asked a valid question....how many more are you taking?

Ann, flares from dairy could be due to the calcium in it being misused by your body due to a K2 deficiency. Without K2, calcium ends up in plenty of places you don't want it, like your arteries, your kidneys, and your skin. With K2, calcium ends up in your bones reducing the risk of osteoporosis, week bones, and tooth decay.

Yes Ann dairy is not good for us. I still have a splash of milk in my coffee and tea and I eat cheese. Just not matured cheeses. I love cheese. In the past I went completely dairy free for a long time. Not sure if it made a difference...

I am not selective in the foods I eat. My main diet after work is generally garlic and herb flatbread with a ring of sliced meats and a pile of celery in the centre. I do enjoy the properties of celery

Chemist said today for me not to take k2, calcium,and d3 until I have talked to Dr,prob see him before I get to see my specialist haha due to work commitments 😂
19 Jul 09:35
The two foods I have a passion for are celery and honey, but not together 😂
Celery for the potassium to ease cramps and swelling. Honey as a natural sweetener rather than sugar. Wether its good or not, I have a teaspoon of pure local honey everyday and it has no effect on my psoriasis. I also drink amber ale as it contains a natural silicone that has eased my painful joints immensely

Love to hear that Glenn! Love your choices of your passion foods. I love local honey too, I buy it raw and it is soooo nice. I don't have it everyday, but wouldn't have a problem with that! I love ale. At the moment I am only drinking gluten free ale but my husband home brews it so that is great!
19 Jul 13:18
Glenn,cramps and swelling? What's that's from?
19 Jul 15:17
Sue, sometimes my knees flare up with ps and the joint swells. But unfortunately for me, I have other medical problems, one of which gives me severe cramping. I have statins for this and the celery helps also, without the celery the cramps sneak in at night.
21 Jul 09:24
Sorry to hear Glenn,some people çop more than we deserve with other medical conditions on top of p,least you know what works for you am still trying natural plus strong creams and pain relievers,good luck and here's hoping sleep will come easier to you
