I'm looking for people who know and/or have experienced changes in their psoriasis with a paleo diet/lifestyle.
I've been having a little bit of psoriasis around the elbows and knees for some 7 years. I was generally healthy and fit, and was eating a 'normal' european diet, when it started. Stress does not seem to infuence this.
Since going paleo (1,5 years ago), I've definitely seen the psoriasis improve, and last summer it was completely gone. This winter it has returned, but really in little amounts.
I'm interested in what other people have experienced, and what specific dietary/lifestyle changes brought improvement, or made things worse.
I've found that sunlight surely is important! I've been taking (orally) Vit D for 2 months, and I think this works, but am nor sure yet. I don't use cortisone (it's not that bad), and I don't use the Vit D ointment, because I want to 'measure my status'.
My jury is still out on the dairy thing. Butter is no problem at all, but milk (which I drank in huge amounts all my life) does seem to cause some internal discomfort, and maybe some increased psoriasis. So now I'm on a very low dairy regime (occasional bit of yoghurt and cheese), but still use high amounts of butter.
Does anybody has some advice, some experiences? Literature and references would be nice to.
