have had p for too many years

I have been inspired by a new book Radiant by Hanna Silitoe and how she has been covered in psoriasis for many years and is now clear by going on a plant based high alkaline diet. I have been on this diet for two weeks as my P is worsening although i am on methotrexate which was doing a wonderful job for two years i felt it was time to look at my diet as you are what you eat!! apparently! I have also realised that celiac disease has a very possible link to psoriasis so i dont eat whole grains,sugar, wheat or meat and dairy. An awful lot to give up all at once but i am so very determined to give it a go or one day i will think i wish i had just to see if it helps me too. It will take 2- 3 months to show improvement. I will let you all know how i get on.

So far im into week 3 of my healthy eating plan.No gluten, dairy sugar or meat. I have slipped up once or twice with the odd sweet but doing very well otherwise. The psoriasis seems to settle and is hardly noticable at times then if i get too warm it shows up again. I am using only zerodouble moisturiser on prescription as dovobet makes it vanish but only for 24 hours. I plan to give it 2 months to see if it clears anywhere.
