Itch, healthcare system, diet

Hi My lovely Flaymers. I had Gammon last Sunday and I thought I'm going to be covered in flakes and be inflamed etc. It's Wednesday and there's no sight of flakes or inflammation. Anybody else have experience with Gammon?

Ah so I guess I can eat Gammon a lot then Bev. Just a pity its so rich in flavour. I'm not really crazy about it but I think with honey and mustard it might taste nice?

What is gammon?

Sounds delicious Bev. I will try it.
Hi Carol. Gammon is pork. Pork is not good for us but apparently Gammon works for some P sufferers. I won't eat it too often though. :)

Pork huh? That is good. Think lean pork is OK unless you are allergic.

Not sure if this is lean pork. I know it's heavy on the tummy. :)

Pork is generally not good and nor is beef, though most meats are pumped full of rubbish and its down to what the animals have been fed on too, Vegan is more ideal but, i cant go vegan as thats my choice, I am happy to leave dairy though, Yes true , these meats are hard to digest Michelle,why people get bloated on it :)


Michelle

Yeah John, I'm not a vegan person. I love meat too much but Pork is not an issue and easy to eliminate from my diet. I've never had a problem with beef though. Dairy I don't do, apart from Milk in my coffee and sometimes cheese when making macaroni & cheese. Not often of course.

I was a big cheese lover ,i loved my cheddar Michelle,I look at cheese very differently now, cant help it, I think of it as poison and yet i dont know why?I used to have my wensleydale cheese at xmas with cranberries in and chives etc, red leicester cheeses not now for 2 years , I will have a hot chocolate or a coffee with milk in now and again if out even brown sugar but i can leave these things,Now and again its okay have these things if one wants them,after all , a bit of bad is good for you ,too much bad is really bad for you :)

Me too I miss eating cheese 😞. Dairy is the one food that I continue to eliminate although very infrequently I consume some if no choice. We grew up drinking copious amounts of milk and I believe this contributed to skin issues.

I wish i knew with me what affects me, think its just winter Rita,My mother contributed to my psoriasis,I chose to give up Dairy but dont think it affects me to be honest ? Thanks :)

I try to keep everything original. Like your cheese with cranberry? I won't eat that. Or vanilla milk. Everything I buy is original.

I guess I'm lucky as food doesn't seem to affect my P, even the nightshades. I still eat healthy though. I only eat meat occasionally cause I have no idea of the origins or treatment of the animals that provide supermarket meat. My local butcher only sells local organic meat. It is more expensive though, so just once, occasionally twice a week. Anyways, I've always loved veg in most forms.

I wonder if food affects me too James ?, i know it helps my joints for sure but it seems the same these last 2 winters with skin ,I am on vita biotics at the moment liverel, see if that helps and my 2 vit D tabs a day . just think just winter dosnt like me but keep to
eating healthy as ones health is important :)


James
James @ferns

I just figured I'm at an age now where eating healthy becomes even more important for living an active life. However, I wasn't a particularly health eater way back, so maybe it did aggrovate my P then. I hadn't been told it could. I can saying I recently eliminated nightshades for over two months but so no change. I absolutely love fresh tomatoes so they're back on the menu now.

It can take a lot more months to see some differences,i know we are all different for sure,My toxin portal patch as been with me 2 years now and wont go no matter what i do, In summer it gets smaller winter it gets larger, I think my flake build up is less for sure, scales are smaller and thinner ,I rarely have tomatoes but used to love them too in salads, only if its in something when out then i dont worry about it nowadays, i used to obsess with it but not now i dont but wont add them to anything,I have just started back on mushrooms after 2 years so,i dont mind doing those on a regular basis , I changed my lifestyle for my joints mainly and to improve ,health ,weight etc as like you James, i just ate most things that werent nutritious though i always had veggies for sure and mainly chicken in my diet, red meat wasnt a thing i had all the time so, whether i been doing most right things over the years,i do not know?Good to have a healthy lifestyle but have a little bad thrown in now and again , small amount whats bad for you is actually good for you , too much bad is really bad though thats a choice, Some changes in diet/lifestyle is better than none but, it is a choice a choice for everyone :)
