Are There Any Specific Supplements Or Diet Advice To Help With My Psoriatic Arthritis?

I have PSA hands and feet and try not to eat any thing with gluten/wheat or foods that cause inflammation (like potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant and peppers). For me when I eat those foods I am lot worse the next few days. I also drink lemon and ginger tea, tart cherry juice and pineapple jiuce. They help with inflammation on days that I have flair ups.

I remember feeling so overwhelmed & scared too when I was diagnosed 16 yrs ago.
I found reading as much information as poss inc books by Dr Pageano etc helpful. Obe if the best things I did was carry out an elimination diet. From that I found my triggers. Everyone is different but my triggers seemed common. Wheat, dairy, nightshades & citrus.
For me processed, sugar, alliums & red meats too. But like I said we are all different so see what your triggers are. It's a slow process but worth it.
I felt that when my body went out of sync it was my bodies way of saying, look after me, put me 1st with good nutrition, rest, pampering, good quality sleep & de stressing.
If I overdo it, get stressed, eat crap or inflammatory foods & come into contact with chemicals my body becomes inflammed & I really know about it.
On the plus side.......there is so much I can do to help myself to calm & prevent flare ups so it's not all helpless.
Sending big hugs....
