Fizzy pop,cakes, sweets junk foods just adds to the inflammation, I was a sugar junkie all my life up to over year and half ago and i changed and i dont get psoriasis bad but, i wanted to reduce inflammation and that it did,Think about it positively what you can do,,If your inflammation was reduced by half, thats something than nothing :) where do you want to be this time next year?Only one that can really help more with this is ourselves as psoriasis is from within,positive changes leads to more of a positive mind,your gut and your brain are both connected, treat the gut and your mind will improve to overtime , less inflammation happier person in ones self,Whats your thoughts? i know its a choice, some changes in Diet/lifestyle is better than none but, it is a choice a choice for everyone, i wish you all well and i hope that some of you will make improvements in their lives :)

Hello lou, I eat mainly vegetables no standard potatoes but sweet potatoes is fine,All salads no tomatoes or peppers,i put some raw veggies in my salads like carrots and courgettes aswell as leeks and all the stuff, cucumbers ,lettuce etc ,steer clear of all sauces, olive good to cook with and use as a dressing,limit salt, Himalayan salt is okay or sea salt is okay,limit fruits,processed meats, old meats,beef pork not considered good, put plenty of turmeric in your diet too , this helps, herbs are good ,sugar is a big evil for us , slow elimination of this is good not like i did and just stop it, cut it down gradually, paprika is bad ,I eat chicken mainly and fresh fish is good not shell fish though,eggplants are not good ,fried foods,fast foods not good, bread,pasta not good,gluten wheat not good, steer clear of packet,jars, tinnned items as the preserves and stabilizers are not good as well as these contain sugar,Alcohol can be a trigger too aswell as smoking .sweets cakes ,all dairy including eggs,glucose, lactose, fructose all can be a trigger , i eat mainly veggies everyday, i wish you well Lou

Your welcome Lou, though it is a choice i know thank you

Susan @godcares

Totally agree john. I'm pretty similar to you. I guess it's how badly we want it. I didn't just want no pain I needed to or I would be in a wheelchair. It was that bad! I was only in my mid 20's too! Honestly, I have no desire for crap in my body. Tasted a piece of chocolate the other day. Disgusting to tell you the truth. Same with a cinnamon bun. Had a bit and could only taste sugar. That's me though. I get that it seems tough at first. The rewards though is feeling great.

True John, I can't take any crappy food in my body, not because I don't want to but because I can't. Since I got P my body has showed Me that I can't eat certain foods and you know what? I like it. One has to listen to ones body.

So true Susan ,Michelle :)
