Eating Blueberries has cleared up my psoriasis

Posted Fri 17 Mar 2017 7.51pm by pdr321
A long sufferer of psoriasis who found an effective treatment after 27 years (blueberries). I have now been clear for nearly 2 years.

After living more that half my life with psoriasis, the condition has 99% disappeared from my body. I am a 50 year old man, and six months ago I was covered all over with psoriasis - now I don't really have the condition. This of course is nothing short of a miracle!

Anyway I started eating about 10 to 20 blueberries a day, blackberries also are good I believe if you can get them. After about a month my psoriasis was gone, I can hardly believe it. I stumbled upon this treatment by accident, and thank heavens I did.

I hope my experience will help fellow sufferers. BTW - ease off on the alcohol, I believe this makes the condition worse.

Good luck I hope others will benefit.

My plasic surgeon recommended blueberries 2 weeks prior to a procedure to minimize bruising and promote healing. I three weeks my psoriasis has completely cleared after 20 years! I was eating one cup a day and still can’t believe that it worked!!!

Istarted with psoriasis 10 months ago.Im on creams and hospital treatment.Sometimes i feel very low,and do,nt want to leave the house.

I'm going to give this a try.I am suffering with P at the moment.Do you know if frozen ones would be just as good. Thank you for the information.

Hi,

DH, I am really happy to hear that you have also had this miracle. I had hoped that others would also benefit, and you are the first to confirm my theory. I remain clear of psoriasis ever since I started eating them 21 months ago. I have just enjoyed a beach holiday without shame, wonderful.

Blossom, I did try frozen blueberries but didn't like the taste. I only ever eat them fresh so I don't know if frozen is as effective.

I have read that blueberries are a powerful anti-inflammatory, and so it makes sense to solve an inflammatory condition. Let us know how you get on.

I have PPP on the soles of my feet and on Cyclosporin at the moment. I'm just wondering if the blueberries would help me or not. Desperate to try something as having trouble walking at the moment as it's so sore.

The soles of my feet was about the only place that I didn't have plaque psoriasis. I was also on Cyclosporin for a while. It worked for me for a time but gradually lost its efficacy, then the psoriasis came back worse than ever. I had bad side effects with Cyclosporin as well. Thank heavens that is all behind me. I've no idea whether blueberries work for all variations of psoriasis, I recommend a try, it's easy and natural, you have nothing to lose. Mixing blueberries with other treatments may not yield optimum results, one thing to consider. Good luck.

Posted Fri 8 Jun 2018 7.26am by Cazzy27

Thankyou pdr321. I shall certainly try them. I have to stop the Cyclosporin soon for 2-3 weeks before starting methotrexate so that will give me a break from the meds anyway. It usually flares up over my body when I'm not on anything so that will be a good test. Do you eat the blueberries in one sitting or can they be spread out?

Hi Cazzy,

I almost ended up on methotrexate, I just couldn't face it, then luckily I discover blueberries and experience the miracle of normal skin. Even now I have to pinch myself that I am clear, I hope this works for you.

I started eating Tesco's Berry Medley about 4 times a week, at about 3 to 4 weeks I was clear. I now eat blueberries every day, either with morning cereal, or a Berry Medley at lunchtime. For me it's a small price to pay for clear skin. I probably don't need to eat as many as I do, but I like them anyway. I just had a beach holiday abroad where I only ate blueberries about 4 times in 2 weeks, still clear. To clear your skin initial I recommend that you eat some every day. I hope it works for you. Phil

Hi Phil. Wow that sounds amazing. I have started on the blueberries but as I'm still on meds I'm not sure if they will help but at least they will be in my system for when I come off. I so hope it works and I will give it a good try. It would be so great not to have medication every day and to lead a normal life. It would be life changing and think you and others that it helps are so lucky.

Hi pdr321, I've just bought mine today.Im looking forward to some good results before I see my Dermatologist in 4 weeks.So do you recommend eating Blue berries every day.Thankyou

Blossom, yes I eat blueberries every day.

Cazzy, the Cyclosporin and blueberries mix does concern me. Personally I'd ditch the Cyclosporin, you may get a flare up initially when you do. I think you will only really know if the berries work when your body chemistry returns to normal. I understand how you feel, I've been there and will be crossing my fingers for you. Phil

Posted Fri 8 Jun 2018 5.54pm by Cazzy27

Hi Phil. I should be stopping any day now. Just waiting for my appointment date to come through. They said 4-6 weeks and it has been 4 weeks already. I flare up really quickly after stopping the meds and literally can't walk that's why I'm loathed to stop until I have a date so I have something to fall back on if the blueberries don't work.

Good luck Blossom. Hope it works for you. Let us know.

It has been 6 weeks and I am still 100% clear for the last 3 after starting the blueberries 6 weeks ago. I eat 1 cup a day, frozen or fresh whatever I can get. My husband has just started so will see how he does.

You can spread it out or eat it all at once, it really doesn’t matter. I am thinking of cutting down now for maintenance maybe 3-4 times a week.

I encourage you all to try and please let us know. There are blueberry councils that do research on how good blueberries are for you, but I can’t find any research on psoriasis. I am thinking about starting an informal study with people’s initials and their individual results so please keep me posted. It might spur real research on this that can help a lot of people.

Posted Sat 9 Jun 2018 4.14pm by Cazzy27

Hi DH. Thanks for that. I know that there are different kinds of Psoriasis so this might only work for some. I have PPP but I will certainly give this a go as it would be amazing if it worked. I will keep you posted.

Posted Mon 11 Jun 2018 11.14am by Chrissie NW

Hi Phil I am amazed at what you have written about Blueberries, Ive had Psoriasis for over 50 yrs I have not gone down the road of the Cancer drugs, but just done it myself, but I am terrible at the moment very sore and very, very red, been to see my Consultant and he recommended drug after drug, blood tests etc I just said no thank you. After reading your article I am going and buying my Blueberries, its absolutely amazing, with me using Steriod Creams most of my life my skin is like tissue paper, so now my hols are spoilt as I burn very easily, so I have to stay out of strong sun. I would like to thank you for all the info and I will certainly come back to the Forum and let you know how I get on, we will be calling you the Blueberry Man. Chrissie

Posted Mon 11 Jun 2018 11.49am by Cazzy27

Hi Chrissie. May I ask what type of psoriasis you have got?

Posted Mon 11 Jun 2018 1.45pm by Chrissie NW

Hi Cazzy, yes you certainly can, I have Psoriatic Psoriasis, I've had Psoriatic for about 18 months you have the pain of that, together with your skin to take care of, it's the worse and painful one. Thanks for contacting me.

Chrissie

Posted Mon 11 Jun 2018 1.52pm by Cazzy27

Hi Chrissie. Ooh I do feel for you. I have PPP on the soles of my feet and some days it's like walking on glass. I'm on Cyclosporin but have to come off it any day now so I am going to give the blueberries a go. I don't know if they work for PPP but time will tell. If that fails then it's back onto methotrexate injections which I don't want to do! Good luck and keep us posted.

Posted Mon 11 Jun 2018 2.57pm by Chrissie NW

Hi Cazzy and I feel for you too. I had P on my feet, only once, but it drove me mad, so I do have sympathy for you. I have never been on any drugs for P when I read all the nightmares people have, I refuse them, one Consultant struck me off his list, so I got in touch with the Ombudsman and they re-instated me, but with a different one and he is great and so understanding, in fact Im going to the Hospital on Thursday am trying the Lamp again its been about 10yrs since I last used it, Im trying it as Im so down at the moment, I hate the travelling three days a week for approx 12 weeks, but we will see if any improvement, Im also going to take the blueberries as well, or should I say magic blueberries!!!!I will keep in touch with my progress. There is a new injection coming out at the end of the year, so Im hoping I may try that, this has no cancer agents in it and has specifically been done for psoriasis suffers only, so there should be no harmful after effects the person who has done this is a Prof at the Manchester Hospital, so thats fantastic news. Thanks Cazzy I will keep you in the picture, let me know how you get on. Good Luck.

Chrissie

Posted Mon 11 Jun 2018 4.04pm by Cazzy27

Hi Chrissie. Ooh I haven't heard of the new injection coming out. Are you able to give me anymore info on it or a website I can look at. I don't like the idea of biologics etc so it would be good if they could find something else that works. Hope you get some relief from the lamp but meanwhile enjoy the magic blueberries! Bye for now.

Hi Carole, well with the injection coming out at the end of the year I have put it somewhere safe and can't find it, leave it with me and I will search I've put it in a book not my Chrome Book, so I will have a good look, with it being later in the year for availability I will look for it in my spare time, I will definitely get back to you I am a bit of a scatter brain . Spk soon. Chrissie

Hi Chrissie, what has happened to me is amazing, it all seems too easy after all those years of agony, steroid creams, hospital appointments, nasty pills etc. If only I had known about blueberries when I was 23. Now it just seems like a bad dream I had. I do hope that everyone here will experience the same miracle. Phil

Posted Wed 13 Jun 2018 6.38am by Benh1988

I’ve been watching this chat for a few days now and after having P for around 15 years nothing as really worked for me , I used to use betnovate on my face which in the end just thinned my skin. now I just moisturise with aveeno which isn’t too bad , however I always wear jumpers and trousers to cover my arms and legs up , only other good thing that works is sun for me if I go abroad to Turkey or Greece , I’ve tried everything sunbeds , vitamins , creams , steroids , tablets , nothing works , I’m going to give the blueberries a try and will keep updates I started on the 11th of June having around 15 a day so will come back with another update in a few week then a few week after that , I have also bought some blueberry smoothies . Fingers crossed it works

Iv just had a large flair up, due to getting stressed over been told I had a BCC on my face, which was removed last week,(results back in a week)

This is amazing I hope everyone Who tries it Will get the same results, I always have a small hand full in my porridge, but now I have doubled the amount

Fingers crossed for us all

Hi Summer, sorry to hear of your BCC and trust all will be good when you get your results.

I'm going for my blueberries tomorrow as my P has been horrific, so I'm going to eat lots. Miracle Phil will have help a lot of us P suffering people with his Blueberries.

Hi Cazzy, I know what it's like, and many patient stories on here are heartbreaking. This condition can certainly ruin lives. In a way I feel like I'm pushing snake oil. It took a while for me to decide to post my experience, when I did the post got next to no feedback. My consultant noted my miraculous recovery but gave it no credibility. Reading the stories of sufferers on here made me decide to post again. It's good to hear that it has worked for at least one other person. Even now some people look at me in a t-shirt and say where are your spots? I tell them what happened and they look at me speechless, not quite believing. I should probably stop pushing this though, I don't want to give false hope. Lastly I do believe that a reasonable diet is also factor. Smoking, too much sugar and alcohol are all bad for psoriasis. I find that I can still indulge within reason. In actual fact I don't smoke and only drink very moderately. Phil

Posted Wed 13 Jun 2018 5.35pm by Cazzy27

Well said Phil and this forum is a great way to share ideas and treatments. I think people are only to pleased to be able to try something else that has worked for others even if it is only one or two people. I'm like you, never have smoked and only have a couple of drinks at the weekend but if I go onto methotrexate I won't be able to do that. Looking forward to hearing from the others on this forum seeing if the blueberries worked for them.

Many many Thks to Phil, I couldn't get my blueberries the other day I have a round trip to the supermarket of 46miles so I thought I have the Hosp tomorrow so I will get them tomorr I have faith in the blueberries, if it's not worked for me, these things happen, all trial and error, like everything in life when you have problems. I will come on the Forum and let everyone know how I get on, I love all this chat when we all suffer with P one way or another. Chrissie

Posted Wed 13 Jun 2018 7.35pm by Cazzy27

Hi Chrissie. Wow 46 miles! I moan when I have to go to the supermarket and mine's only a 2 mile round trip!! I shall never moan again. As you say these things are trial and error and don't work for everyone but you have to try them. Good luck with the hospital tomorrow and hope the supermarket have got lots of blueberries for you.

Hi Ben,

I recall that after a couple of weeks I noticed first that no new spots were forming. Next the scales just started falling off, dead skin everywhere like snow! At about 3 weeks to a month I was clear. I healed really rapidly, it was quite the miracle. Just before I had been covered nearly all over, it was really bad.

Hello all Nice to see a group of people helping one another

Hi all new on here and like you guys looking to rid myself of my P

Thanks to Cazzy for pointing me in direction of this forum

Along with blueberry is there any other recommended superfood that helps us sufferers

Any feedback appreciated

Hello All,

I just recently been diagnosed with psoriasis and i find it very daunting. I have never suffered from any skin condition until a year ago. I have been on the steroid creama nd coal tar lotion but nothing seems to help. Its getting worse. First it was only on my knees and elbows and now its all over my body. The itching is also getting worse. I have been waiting to see the dermatologist for 6 months. It’s very frustrating. I will definitely try the blueberries. I haven’t slept all night due to the itching and i feel very down as a colleague just pointed how awful my skin and if its contagious! I just want to hide.

Hello all Nice to see a group of people helping one another

Hi MAD Firstly sorry to hear of your skin troubles. Like you i only contracted P a year past march and mine started with a few spots with got bigger and eventually spread. My worse effected areas are my lower back shins and forearms.

I started cyclosporin on saturday but only taking 100mg per day instead of the 200mg i was meant to take. Of course i also started on the blueberries on saturday and im hoping for a result by way of combining them with the cyclosporin

Will keep you posted as to how it goes and good luck with the super blueberries

Posted Mon 18 Jun 2018 8.54am by OhNo_NotAgain?

I find it quite strange that there are so many posts on these forums from people who say things like - "I have been prescribed xxxx but I don't want to use it" or "my dermatologist gave me xxx but I only use it yyyyyyy". Here is another example - and please do not take this as personal criticism Stuart - but why if you are "meant to take 200mg" would you only take 100mg?

My doctor prescribed my certain things for psoriaisis and when I saw no impreovement at all - particularly in the itching, I went back to him, discussed options and non-prescription options and was given something else which has helped.

When some post that "xxxx did not help me at all" I do occasionally wonder for how long and in what way did they use it - was it as advised?

Hi Stuart,

I don't like the idea of the blueberries cyclosporin mix. Try the blueberries, if they don't work then you have no option right? My view is avoid strong meds unless there is no other option.
