Does anyone have any hacks for Psoriasis?
I've been paleo for about 8 or 9 months. During that time I have developed psoriasis on my elbows, knees and he back of my legs. I've tried low carb, moderate carb, supplements, I cut dairy for 3 months, eggs for a month, I eat plenty of fats and offal, Am careful about vegetable oil or gluten contamination, my vitamin D levels are in the 60s at my last blood test, and I use nothing but Dr. Bronners unscented baby soap and coconut oil on my skin. (and I used those things pre-paleo without issue.
Other than those areas my skin looks great without dryness, oiliness wrinkles or acne.
Any natural cures? Dietary changes? Is there a possible deficiency or glandular issue related? I refuse to use topical steroids, though they've been offered because I'm breastfeeding.
I don't think it was paleo that caused it but I didn't have psoriasis before. I did however have high CRP at my last blood test (which was about 4 months ago) low hdl, and I've had some joint stiffness in the past 6 months. My doctor hasn't figured out what that's about but we are doing a thyroid panel And rechecking my cholesterol and CRP this week. Just mentioning this stuff in case it is related. I'm 27 years old and a new cosleeping/breastfeeding mom so I don't get optimal Sleep at night but I do nap.
