I have given up almost all sugar and artificial sweetener as well as alcohol, red meat, egg yolks, dairy, nightshade veggies: tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peppers, paprika; condiments and spicy foods; citrus fruits and strawberries; junk food and chocolate. I've reduced my caffeine to only decaffeinated drinks and I'm working toward giving up gluten. I'm debating on egg whites. Some say they may be a problem, but I sure like having that source of protein. I have the book Healing Psoriasis by Pagano and haven't quite decided if I want to try the detox portion. I am drinking the slippery elm bark powder, using lecithin, and several other supplements. Don't know if it will work, but I figure it's worth a try.

Thanks Slenderella61 - there's so much news coming in now - and with you going to the workshop at the end of this month - we would love to find out what you learn. Boston isn't until June 6 (have patience I keep telling myself). In the meantime, I'm going to try to cut out as much sugar as possible; it's a possible psoriasis trigger - and it's not helping my weight loss, either. emoticon

Would love to help you get the Psoriasis Support Team more active. I'm going to a workshop by the National Psoriasis Foundation on Saturday April 25 in Tampa. Hope to learn a lot! -Marsha

my baby daughter Faith (is 4 now) she had tubes in her ears when she was under 15 months old ..then when she was 15 months old she stopped breathing in the middle of night ..she had a fever during church and came home gave her meds and she went to sleep a few hours later and i stayed up so i could check on her b4 i layed down (thank God ) i did bc she was unresponsive they lost her 3 times in the e.r. ...and had to life flight her to savannah ga.(3 hours away by car)..and did not even think she would make it there...she was in icu for 3 weeks and her organs started failing ..BUT PRAISE GOD ....SHE MADE IT !!!!!..she has no brain damage ..and except for a scar on the back of her neck (from being so swollen and a bed sore ) you wouldn't even know she was sick.....they tested her for everything under the sun...and bought in several specialist and never found anything wrong with her...
