Natural Ways to Improve Your Psoriasis
In my 25 years of living, I have found that doctor’s turn to prescriptions and medications far more than they need to. It seems like everything is driven by the almighty dollar and not by the well-being of the patient like it should be. I firmly believe that we should try natural treatments first, long before medications. If people make some positive lifestyle changes, they could easily overcome many health conditions without the negative side effects that many medicines have. It almost seems like doctors might also believe that many patients with health problems are so lazy and set in their ways that they figure prescriptions are the best way to treat people.
The best natural way to treat your psoriasis is by eating lots of fruits and vegetables. If you are one of those people who just doesn’t really like the taste of vegetables like I was, it is pretty easy to still get in the habit of eating them. I just started eating a salad before every meal at lunch and dinner. It is much easier to do when you know you have a great main course waiting for you. Also, broccoli and carrots with ranch dressing are an amazing snack. Making a veggie stir fry with mushrooms, broccoli, zucchini, and soy sauce not only tastes great but gives you a good amount of vegetables.
Maybe even more important than the items you are eating is the items that you need to avoid. The number one thing that people suffering from psoriasis need to avoid is alcohol. I find myself breaking out all over the place after only a few drinks. It is very hard young people to completely abstain from alcohol, but it is absolutely necessary. My friends look at me like I’m from another planet when we go out sometimes and I tell them I’m not drinking. If you just have to have a drink when you are at a social event, go with a glass of wine, and make sure you do not have more than two.
I have discovered some food items that seem to cause my psoriasis to act up. Tomatoes are the main culprit. Any time I eat pizza or pasta or some other tomato-based food item, I have scales on my shoulders and back the next day. Spicy foods like hot peppers and jalapenos seem to trigger an outbreak quite often as well. I read in a book that strawberries might not be good for people with psoriasis as well, but I have not had that experience. If there is a way for you to completely avoid pizza, it will be a major victory in your fight against psoriasis.
While battling psoriasis may seem like an uphill battle that just can’t be won, it is possible to keep your breakouts to a minimum. I know having psoriasis is horrible, but if it makes you change your life for the better, it is possible that this skin condition might even end up being a blessing in disguise in the long run. It is better to treat your condition as a challenge for you to make yourself stronger, instead of helplessly playing the victim card.Natural Ways to Improve Your Psoriasis,
