April fools update

Hi all, things are still going well but I will say that the last little spot on my right foot is still there. I went back to my holistic dr today and he said that particular spot on my foot is indicative of weak kidneys. He showed me a Chinese acupressure chart that showed me what he was talking about. Then he did some muscle testing and said everything does seem to be fine except my kidneys.

I am going to try the following supplements for a month, and if this spot heals then we all can start creating some new theories. BTW, he reminded me that when one puts steroid cream on one spot the psoriasis will simply move to a different spot. I have not been using any cream for a while so let's see if making my kidneys stronger helps.

Happy March

Hi All,
just to let you know, all is still well. I spent a little time this past week on Inspire.com to see what is going on with other psoriasis sufferers. The good news is some of the people that started the diet the same time I did have also seen fantastic results and are happy (go Jitterbug and a few others who's handles I can't remember right now).

The sad news is many other people write that they feel so depressed and sad because this condition is making their life miserable and their meds have stopped working.  I have chimed in on a few discussions to 'enlighten' sufferers to another path - but I don't want to be pushy.

When the student is ready the teacher will enter.
I will post there every now and then - but that is all.  My traffic for this sight has gone up so I know I am getting through to some of you.  Please know that I am not trying to make any money off of this blog.  Google tells me to add ads to make money - but that is not why I am doing it.  I really just want to give people hope that their body can heal if you give it a chance.

Peace and love to all!

Happy Valentines day

Hi all,
it has been a while since I actually posted with a picture so I wanted to do that.  Not bad considering a holiday season of night shades and alcohol.  I actually gained 10 lbs but I have started my diet and exercising again to get into shape.

If you look closely my left foot looks as good as it ever has but there is a slight discoloration on my right.  This is strange because my right foot was always the best one.  But I know this is because I did a 10+ mile rollerblade with my kids right before Christmas and my socks were awful.  Its bruised but it will heal.  It is not itchy at all.

I have started going to the gym 2-3 times a week and do about 2-3 miles on the elliptical machine.  I make sure I remove my sweaty socks as soon as possible because I think that causes too much "stress" on my delicate skin.

People keep asking me what is the one thing that helped me. There is no answer other than clean living.  Educate yourself on what a good diet really means in terms of alkaline, sugar, gluten, night shades and all of the other things that are mentioned in the Pagano book.  Steer clear of processed foods because there are so many additives in there that you don't know what you are eating. Go organic to avoid pesticides.  This is the only thing I can think of that caused the heavy metals in my toxicity report.  Make sure your digestive track is doing what it is supposed to do daily, (if you know what I mean). Finally, believe.  Please tell me your stories.  I will keep blogging if it helps people.
xoxo

Still doing great

Hey all, I just want to let you know my skin looks great.
I feel blessed and fortunate.
I watch what I eat and drink but I still indulge. I promise I will tell you if any new changes come up but for now, I am declaring myself healed.

I hope this blog has helped at least one other person. It was scary to ignore my doctors and "heal like a hippy", but it worked and I am so happy.

I feel like some people have a better sense if smell, or are smarter, or better at math. I happen to have sensitive skin. My skin is my warning system that I need to eat something different. I see it as my blessing in disguise. I have learned so much about nutrition that I drive most folks nuts, but it has saved me.
Good luck to all of you.

Thanksgiving diet does not equal Pagano

Hi all! I thought I would give everyone an update.... 
The holidays are upon us and I have been off the wagon - the Pagano wagon, but still holding up pretty well.
I have indulged in egg nog with rum, more wine than I usually drink, I had lasagna with tomato sauce, tomatoes, white potatoes, etc.
But... I indulged more carefully than past years.  I have also been drinking my Golden Milk every night. Winter is here and weather is dry and I have been using lots of lotion - but not steroidal cream... none!
And my skin continues to improve. Here is a picture of my last plaque as of this morning.


I feel blessed.  I hope all of you are also on your way to healing.
Happy Holidays!

7 1/2 months later .. not too shabby

Ok, no preaching - just results.  Yes these are the same hands and feet.
There is still some slight redness on my left foot but I imagine this will be perfect by summer.

Getting a little better every day

All,
It has been a long time since I last posted and I am sorry.  The great news is I am really doing great. I'll let the pics speak for themselves. If you have follow my blog you've seen that I have been through just about every holistic cure.  I rarely (maybe once every 2-3 weeks) use a little steroid cream.  I do this if I am going to do a lot of walking and I don't want to inflame my feet.

I hope this blog serves as hope for people that have psoriasis, that there is a way to heal.  But know you have to take responsibility for your health.  You have to eat better.  You have to drink water and limit alcohol and anything else you know is bad for you.

I hope this blog gives you some ideas of how you can cure yourself, but I do believe everyone is an individual and what works for me, may not work for you. You have to experiment and be patient.

Here are some before and after pics....

My feet and hand in May

My feet and hand in June

My feet and hand in Sept

Today I enjoy wine 1-2 times a week.
I try to steer clear of night shades and gluten but I am not super hyper about it.
I try to eat organic all of the time but that can't be controlled all of the time.
I am starting to get back into my work out routine - now that my feet are not in pain anymore.

I will post again when my left foot is as clear as my right. maybe next month. ;)
Thanks for reading.
