If you are searching for a fix you can do all on your own start to look at your diet. That’s right! What you are eating could be worsening your symptoms. Check out these four substances that could be sabotaging your psoriasis without you knowing:
- Gluten and Yeast: There is no scientific evidence to support this idea, but people have reported eliminating these products from their diets has helped diminish their Psoriasis symptoms. Maintaining a gluten-free diet is not very hard nowadays, due to heightened understanding of gluten allergies within the medical community, as well as an increased variety of choices at grocery stores. Here are some yummy gluten-free recipes to get you started: Gluten-Free Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins,Gluten-Free Blueberry Peach Crumble,and Gluten-Free Baked Fried Chicken.
- High-fat Dairy: High-fat dairy is associated with inflammation. Therefore, try to use low-fat products, which are healthier over-all. According to webmd,when you switch from high-fat to low-fat milk you cut calories, saturated fat and cholesterol. When sticking to low-fat dairy products you still reap the benefits of dairy, which is a great source of Vitamins A and D, and Calcium.
– Red Meats: High fatty red meats are shown to lead to inflammation. Instead choose leaner cuts.
- Alcohol: There is no scientific study to support this, but patients report when they consume too much alcohol their psoriasis worsens. Alcohol dehydrates your body, which can lead to dry skin, and therefore aggravate psoriasis.
