Re: Psoriasis & Psoriatic arthritis

i have Psoriasis
a few small patches and 2 bigger 1s (3cms wide or so)
the small 1s goes after a day or 2 of applying betnovate
the bigger 1s are harder to deal with
doesnt really seems to go away even after days of betnovate and donovex(?)

well all the patches comes back after a month or 2
had it for like 5 years or so

havent seen GP about for years about (just get repeat presciption)
wanting to see GP about for some time

Re: Psoriasis & Psoriatic arthritis

Covered with it. I was very bad about a year ago and got light treatment 3 times a week. It worked great. But I'm unluckily in that it comes back when I'm stressed.

I reacted badly to the light treatment and had to stop

I've not been offered any treatment.......and it does get worse when I'm stressed.
Good incentive to stay chilled

Re: Psoriasis & Psoriatic arthritis

I diagnosed myself as having Psoriatic Arthritis and Psoriasis about three years ago. The rheumatologist prescribed steroids and that was that.
Knowing what steroids do to the body with long term use, I decided to find an alternative.
I'd already noticed that my arthritic symptoms improved in minutes after I ingested ginger so I researched natural anti-inflammatories. That lead me to turmeric as well as ginger.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19110321
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18484280
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15659827
etc, etc....
I bought a masticating juicer and ice cube bags
and set about juicing turmeric root and ginger root.......messy.

Every day I dissolve 4 cubes of turmeric and 3 cubes of ginger in some water and drink it. Tastes horrible but it does the job.
I have been largely symptom free ever since. My skin is almost clear and my arthritis is kept at bay.
Not had a single steroid, still have the prescription.
Works for me and there is quite a lot of research to back this approach up......
