August is National Psoriasis Awareness Month

August is a hot and sticky month and I was thinking this is kind of a good month for an autoimmune disorder that affects the skin with skin redness and irritation. Today we are going to look at Psoriasis.

I’m going to share Dr. Frita’s explanation of Psoriasis. Dr. Frita is very interesting and informative.

The Psoriasis Diet

Many of our illness can be positively affected by changing our diet and psoriasis isn’t any different. Adding foods to our diet that will help and removing the foods that hurt is one of the easiest ways I know to bring relief to my body.

Personally, I started taking stock of the foods I was eating and how they helped or harmed me. I definitely wanted to stop eating the foods that would make me worse and eat plenty of the foods that made me feel better. I would journal the foods and write down what changed after I ate it. Sometimes my eyes would flare, other times the back of my neck would flare. There were days that I had to add a sugary food like raisins or prunes to get my eyes feeling normal again.

If you have never paid attention to how foods affect you. Think about it. Relief could be one bite away.
