Has anyone tried diet to heal psoriasis?

Hi All,

I’m new to this forum after suffering from psoriasis for many years

I have recently been reading a book by Adam Enaz on amazon called “how I cured psoriasis with diet”

Has anyone tried it, it focuses on treating leaky gut and the author seems to have good results as well as good reviews

It would be hard to cut out all those things but i am curious to try!

Things happen for a reason: Psoriasis makes us look younger afterall ;-)

Hello there,

In my experience, reduced-Gluten diet has been helpful. Vitamin D intakes are beneficial too, I think.

I hope this helps

There are quite a lot of Instagram accounts about diet too, check out Hannah Sillitoe. I’ve not tried it as it’s such a huge commitment but there are loads of success stories.

I have just been prescribed Cyclosporin after trying various other treatments including methotrexate and puva light therapy. The difference in a week is unbelieveable

I've had psoriasis for 40yrs and last year decided to have a food intolerance test. Showed positive intolerance to yeast, sugar, dairy, mushrooms etc. Also low in a few vitamins and minerals. Changed my diet, took the supplements and without doubt psoriasis is much improved. Stopped eating the 'nightshades' - tomatoes, potatoes, peppers. Definitely worth looking into foods v. psoriasis. I don't know why GPs don't suggest it instead of just keep handing out steriod creams! Had another intolerance test a year later and just positive to dairy and mushrooms. Whilst psoriasis hasn't totally disappeared it is certainly much better. Also, I use Calendula cream for any itching which I find good. Hope this info might help anyone.

newbie here to this forum

I eat low carb (and when I stick to it) my skin improves (mild psoriasis, elbows, eyebrows, nails) and my joints are less painful, feel less swollen (psoriatic arthritis - GP diagnosed)

I can only speak for myself, but cutting out sugar and carbohydrates - bread/potatoes/pasta etc - and identifying carbs and tracking to ensure staying low carb I feel better

eating low carb has good reports - see dietdoctor website

I'm also on a low (almost zero) carb diet since two years. I cut out all wheat and milk products. This was helping reducing psoriasis a lot, last summer it was gone completely.

Bit be careful, wheat is in many other products as well, like sauces and marinade.

I hope this could help you as well.

Had P on and off for many years 🤗

I went on a low carb diet for a year and my psoriasis increased a lot, no dairy no sugar and mainly eating meat. I lost weight but the psoriasis ran rampant. I’m now back to eating normally and luckily the psoriasis is decreasing. I did read somewhere that the keto diet isn’t good for psoriasis due to its high fat content https://www.news-medical.net/news/20191017/Keto-diet-may-cause-skin-problems.aspx?showform=email

Maorsharif, I hope you've had some positive results by changing your diet.

I was able to eliminate almost all of my psoriasis symptoms by cutting down on nightshades, dairy, alcohol, and sugar. I knocked off one thing every month, and it turned out to be easier than I expected. Cutting out sugar was the hardest!

I respect that dietary changes won't work for everyone, but they do seem to have helped a lot of people control their psoriasis.
