Secrets, looks, treatment

Who else have tried the turmeric paste on their P? I think it work's great to get rid of flakes. I still drink my turmeric water in the morning (skipped last week) but it still helps with inflammation. :)

Since drinking the turmeric water and changing my diet especially my salt, I haven't had stiff or painful joints. How many of my fellow Flaymers have seen improvement by changing their diet?

I haven't tried the paste on my skin yet. I make tea with turmeric root ginger and honey when I can get it. Diet has definitely helped me manage my p. And sunshine ☀

I have been putting turmeric root , ginger & cucumber slices in my water everyday ... I find it gives me a bit of a runny tummy ...( which I don't mind as I think its a good toxin cleanse ) ... does anybody else experience this...

That's great news Jen and I'm happy its helping you too. Ellen, I've never tried it like that but yes its great for detoxing. I only have ginger in my curry but not too much. But ginger beer is nice lol. How is your scalp Ellen? Getting better?

Hi Michelle , I put Turmeric in every thing when cooking , but how do you do the paste ? do you mix it yourself ? Thanks

Hi Ellen I think it's better if you boil the turmeric ginger water first?


Ellen
Ellen @ellen4

Thanx Jen ,.. will try boiling first.
Michelle I am flaring very badly on my scalp & bum cheek. I am back to my oiling everyday so I wear my hair wet with the oil ... that's the reason for drinking the turmeric & ginger water also....I used the last of my CoalTar shampoo this morning so I need to get more....my nails are looking good though

Hi EI, I just mix a bit of turmeric powder with my tar mix. Once it goes dry, the flakes fall off and the skin is smooth. Much better to treat the P then. :)
I'm sorry to hear about your scalp Ellen but its wonderful news about your nails. Do you color your hair? Home dye? Remember I said my P was triggered when I dyed my hair for the first time at a salon? After that, it disappeared when I start dyeing it with home dye. The mysteries of P. I know my P is going to flare up when I find a spot on my head. Ellen, have you tried the lpc cream yet? I remember you said you couldnd find Any?
Hi Julia, I will try the turmeric with lemon to give it a flavour. Does it work for you?
