I find that mine fluctuates wildly depending on diet. When I was eating 100% plant based and mostly whole foods, my psoriasis basically went away. Now that I'm eating animal products and significantly lower quality food than I was previously, it's come back with a vengeance. I'm not sure how much of it is the foods themselves and how much is just the poor quality of the food sold in supermarkets here. That's part of the reason I'm focused on growing the bulk of my food.
My doctor wasn't surprised that my psoriasis went away on a plant-based diet, though, since that eliminated most of the pro-inflammatory foods from my diet.
As far as treating the symptoms... 🤷🏻♂️ I've never found anything satisfactory enough to continue to use it.
I luckily do not have psoriasis. I do have eczema and extra problems with bug bites.
That’s why I grow marshmallow. I’ve never found anything that gives immediate relief like it does. The fresh root is best but dried also works. I cut it open and wet it before rubbing some on. I’ve read that it can be ground in a mortar and pestle with a little water too.
I’m happy to report that it’s very easy to grow from seed.
if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
