yes, I'm taking omega's and 2Tbsp flax oil every day. as well as vitamin D and Oregon Grape extract.
2 weeks in and I can see a HUGE difference! my left hand (which was worse than the right) is starting to clear up - the fissures are healing and I can move my fingers and actually use my thumb. the patches up my legs are still flaky and red, but underneath it looks like REAL skin.
Its totally worth it to change! plus I've lost some weight.
Christine. I believe a healthy gut is important for skin health (it's all connected), so congrats on trying a new treatment for your psoriasis. If you haven't already, consider reading up on Vitamin D, omega-3 oils, zinc, and B vitamins in relation to your psoriasis (google around about vitamin deficiencies and psoriasis).
I have a friend who is not ready to consider gf diet, nor adding vitamins, etc., so I look forward to hearing how you do. I hope well, cause I know it's not a fun thing to experience.
Best wishes to you.
Be curious! If health is wealth, I'm aiming to be stinking rich!
Welcome to the group, I am fairly new to this way of eating as well. I have been Gluten Free for about two months now at the suggestion of my chiropractor. I can't believe how much better I feel. From what I have been reading, my family tree on my mother's side exhibit many of the symptoms of wheat/gluten sensativity including Rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, fibromyalgia, joint pains, IBS, etc. So far I am the only one who has gone gluten free. I keep encouraging my sister because she is every extreme with the fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, nerve damage, does not absorb vitamin B12. I keep hoping she will try gluten free even for a few weeks to see if there is a difference, I noticed a difference in 2 days.
Good luck with gluten free, I hope you have success with it as I have.
Be yourself, you are unique. Remember there is no one out there more qualified for the job.
I'm a newbie to the gluten free thing. I have severe psoriasis on my legs and hands. after doing lots of research recently i've found that gluten and wheat is sometimes a large contributor to psoriasis. Years of dermatologist and specialists I'm tired of the medications and steroids and stuff thats really not that great for me.
So, I've gone clean (cleaneating.com) and wheat/gluten free.
two weeks in, I've lost 10 pounds and my skin seems to be healing
I have about 20-30 pounds to lose but the skin is most important to me right now.
dh and the kids are 'kinda' into the healthy eating too.
