My Derm Wanted Me To Take Injections. I Had A Friend Who Had A Terrible Reaction To Injections And Almost Lost Her Life.

My Derm Wanted Me To Take Injections. I Had A Friend Who Had A Terrible Reaction To Injections And Almost Lost Her Life.

I went online and read about anti-inflammatory diets. I tried eating a very strict anti-inflammatory diet and after three days, my psoraisis (mine is on both hands) cleared up quite a lot.

This stuff is a powder I consume everyday and so far I love the results- and have shared with some people who have also reported positive results. The immune system is in our digestive system so I makes sense to focus on an internal supplement. I also think allergies are linked to flare ups. Best of luck!

I, too, have that same issue! The dermatologists don’t want to say that psoriasis can be controlled by diet. They say there’s no research. I worked years to co trip mine with diet and believe me....it works! I would suggest a homeopathic physician or an allergist. That is what saved me.
