Gluten free diet and Coconut oil

Posted Fri 26 Jun 2020 1.08pm by SilviaG

Hello everyone!

I am new to this interesting forum.

I will be 43 next month. I have had psoriasis since I was 14. Yes, for a long time!

It started on my scalp, then in my ears and in the last few years on my elbow, especially the right one.

My psoriasis comes and go but I have never been completely clear.

It was def. better when I was living in Malta (now I live in London) due to the weather and the sea salt.

Last year in November I started a gluten free diet, after reading that it would be great for psoriasis, I saw very good results after a few months.

Then sadly my father passed away in March and it flared up badly...!!!

I will continue eating gluten free.

I started using coconut oil and it's great! The skin is so smooth.

I have also bought a new shampoo and it looks like it's effective. Not sure if I can mention the brand though. Please let me know if I can.

Wishing you all a great day!
