I believe a healthy diet. We enjoy lots of sunshine in Sunny South Africa yet my P has spread like a wildfire since I was diagnosed.

I would say the sun with the skin, Diet helps my joints a lot ah and my finger nails :), i am good , no one would no thank you :)

At first, it was the sun that helped my P disappear, but when It flared up again, the diet helped my P to fade. I would say both are a terrific combination to manage it.

It's not a diet anymore. More of a lifestyle change to me. :)

Without the healthy diet you won't be here to enjoy the sun...😎

First the sun. If you live in a hot country you should be OK.
And of course a healthy diet is always good not only for the psoriasis but for our health in general.

I have no idea . My P seems to have a mind of its own. Comes and goes as it pleases like a naughty teenager....

Sarah @sarahuk

The sun isn't helping my skin this year so I'd say diet. But then my diet isn't helping much at the moment either so who knows!


Mavis
Mavis @mavis

I would say diet plays a big part and trying to be stress free


Jen
Jen @jen1984

I'm sure for me it's a combination of both.

I would say both for me too, along with a good mind frame. If my mind is not right.. down.. stressed.. worried..annoyed.. ect sun or food wouldn't be as much help. A book I highly recommend reading is called "The Four Agreements" It is very eye opening and makes total sense. Gives a different perspectives on life situations.
Here are the agreements to give you an idea about the book:

“The Four Agreements
1. Be impeccable with your word.
2. Don’t take anything personally.
3. Don’t make assumptions.
4. Always do your best. ”
― Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

Love that Michelle and it is so true. Thank you for recommending the book. It sounds very interesting and would love to read it :) .

I think diet and lifestyle for me. Sun helps more when I'm on holiday than sun at home so I guess that's relaxation too.

Doris
Doris @debinfo

I think sunlight, vitamin D and diet are all important. Because I had a histamine reaction on my skin at doctors office, when I went for my itchiness. He gave me an antihistamine.
I put myself on a low histamine diet until I see him again. He didn't recommend anything
I am already discovering foods that I don't tolerate well .So yes, I think diet is very important


Rosey
Rosey @sue2023

I swear by lemons to get me through the work stuff,rub it on drink it,i didn't do it for a week and flaked everywhere,not a cure,stings like heck on parts,but it's only thing that works for flakes,and yep diet got to work out not to eat,white bread milk and anything dairy not good,but sometimes got no choice,u will get there,its a displine thing too ,too tired to eat so that's a bonus haha


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

I drink lemon water every morning before I have coffee and it helps. Same with my turmeric.


Justin
Justin @justin1

I have bought some Turmeric - does it aid my Psoriasis?


Jen
Jen @jen1984

I believe it will Justin. If not for your skin then for your joints and gut. Turmeric is good for so many ailments. It's natural so it can't hurt.
