Healing Psoriasis Begins with Your Diet!
You may be surprised to learn that what you eat can drastically affect the condition of your skin. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables and their juices, plus whole grains may help to alleviate some of the discomfort associated with not only psoriasis, but other skin conditions as well, such as acne and Rosacea.
Vitamin D-3 and the Skin
Although there is currently no proven cure for psoriasis, recent research indicates that there are numerous health benefits to vitamin D. Supplementation with D-3 provides relief from many inflammatory ailments and medical conditions. We believe these include psoriasis, dermatitis, dandruff, eczema, rosacea, and severe acne.
Inverse Psoriasis
Inverse psoriasis is found in skin folds such as the armpits, groin, under the breasts, around genitals and the buttocks. Inverse psoriasis is more common in people who are overweight and people with deep skin folds where friction and sweating occur.
