I get rashes that indicate that my body has toxins that are causing problems. I have spent the past 18 months detoxing and cleaning up my diet and my skin currently shows no signs of psoriasis. I am no longer on a restrictive diet but I eat and drink the things that poison me in much more moderation.
I have not used any pharmaceuticals in about 8 months. The steroid cream has its own set of problems but as my blog followers know, I have used it when I needed a break from a bad flare.
I know I will get the occasional flare going forward, but I know that flare is reminding me to stay away from my toxins. My toxins may be different than yours but for me it was:
- night shades
- pesticides from non-organic foods
How do I know this? Well it is all in my blog but the short answer is I had a toxicity report that tested me through the roof on some heavy metals. The only source of these I can figure out are from pesticides, maybe bad tap water. I get itchy when I drink more than 2 glasses of red wine. I get itchy if I eat too much sweets. I don't feel itchy with night shades but I have been eating those in moderation. If I eat tomato sauce 2 times in a row rashes looked a little redder - at least to me.
How I healed is clearly spelled out in my blog but to summarize I did the following:
- Read Dr Pagano's book and educated myself and tried to follow it
- Detoxed myself per Pagano's recommendations
- Addressed my leaky gut with supplements - (Probiotics)
- Detoxed with MediClear
- Drink more filtered water
- Went organic!
- Check lotions - a lot of them have bad stuff in it. I switched to olive oil.
I wish you all the best.
My daughter has eczema - and I am starting her on my regiment. I will keep you in the loop on how she is doing.
