    Psoriasis cure through diet?

    Shop Now
    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if anyone has cured their psoriasis through the primal diet on here?

    I been doing 80% Paleo the last two months. My acne has definitely reduced. But my psoriasis has not changed at all. I do eat grass fed butter as the only dairy source.

    I have recently been diagnosed with psoriasis. It took over 1.5 years to even diagnose it! I been to two dermatologists and one naturepath. None of them has able to help me in any way.

    So has anyone able to cure this? I have heard people with autoimmune diseases should avoid the nightshades and all forms of dairy in addition to the Paleo diet?

    Hello! I've had psoriasis since I was a teenager. Sadly, going Paleo seems to keep it from flaring up, but hasn't really helped kick it into remission. I don't do dairy, but do admit I find it hard to avoid nightshades. I know that for me any form of sugar, even palm sugar, honey, red wine etc... are triggers. I try to avoid them when possible!

    I started eating primal after I got a flare up on my face. After about a week the new spot on my face cleared up. Anytime I stray from the diet that area of my face starts to flare up again. I have had a very large patch of psoriasis on my scalp and neck for years and have seen no improvements in that area.

    So its completely clear as long as you avoid sugars?

    I've heard of some success from implementing a low lectin version of primal eating.

    Did you modify your paleo diet according to the autoimmune protocol? like no dairy and nightshades?

    I haven't tried eliminating nightshades and grass fed butter yet.

    I am going to have to look that up on here. I know there are lectins found in beans and grains? Of which I already avoid.

    Check out The Lectin Story, this thread, and also Mark's article on lectins.

    I found a quote in a thread here that states:

    I do low lectin PB - no eggs, grains, beans, dairy, or nightshades. Works great for inflammation.
