The healing power of diet

A lot is written about the benefits of anti-inflammatory diets and with good reason as diet plays a key role in the effective management of psoriasis. These photos (published by request! and with permission) show before and after 3 weeks of dietary treatment of plantar psoriasis of a 57 year old woman – a rapid response indeed.

The dietary treatment was largely plant based, with some grass fed animal protein and no processed or packaged foods. Some probiotic and medicinal foods were included such as healing stewed apple and sun-baked mushrooms (for their vitamin D content). The diet was followed rigorously but once healing is complete, can be relaxed.
