Psoriasis Diet to Reduce Flare-Ups

A psoriasis diet is a top notch way to help manage your skin woes. It is possible to reduce flare-ups with the right foods and nutrients; because psoriasis is an inflammatory condition, an anti-inflammatory diet can help.

Include
Be sure to work the following into your diet so as to reap the psoriasis-treating benefits:

  • Fish oil: Essential fatty acids are known to be good for a variety of skin conditions; this solution has been proven to be effective at helping psoriasis.
  • Vitamin D: Make sure you're getting enough vitamin D from milk and fortified cereals. You'll also get vitamin D from the sun if you're doing sunlight treatments.
  • Curcumin: This spice has been studied and found to be effective against psoriasis. This is the active ingredient in tumeric, the spice found in Indian curries.
  • Other anti-inflammatories: The key is reducing inflammation. Rosemary, ginger, garlic and onions all can help.

Avoid

  • Fatty meats and fried foods: Some foods can actually promote inflammation, so try to limit fatty meats and fried foods to only once per month.
  • Processed foods: The problem with processed foods is that they're often filled with sugar, which promotes inflammation. Also, since these foods are filled with a host of chemicals and additives, it's hard to determine what ingredients can be contributing to your psoriasis.
  • Carbohydrates: Like processed foods, carbohydrates are filled with sugar, an inflammatory issue.
