Food Is Powerful Medicine When It Comes to Psoriasis
It should not be overlooked the impact of food on multiple pathways leading to and worsening psoriasis. We're beginning to gather evidence that a diet high in micronutrients, low in calories, protein adequate, gluten-free, plant-based whole food, and anti-inflammatory has healing powers for psoriasis. The suffering and stigma with psoriasis alone, not to mention the inflammation-related comorbidiities such as obesity, heart disease, and metabolic syndrome, and the toxic side effects of the lifelong medications make this treatment plan absolutely essential for those suffering with this codition. Patients should be taught this option, given tips to make it work for them, and given the opportunity for a disease-free life.
