    Unconquerable Dave. Suggesting a 30 day trial. Talking when appropriate about your successes, but not beating over the head with it. Praying. Waiting.

    At this point I think he would just get mad if I shared Unconquerable Dave. Doing the others and trusting God that it will be okay. (well sort of...trying to anyway )

    I have it myself and was diagnosed with it as a very young child. It came and went, not a big drama but as I got into my twenties, it became more "regular." Came in the winter, left me over the summer. Always located on my hips, and under my forearms. Nothing crazy but it was there and I found it irritating. Anyway, when I was vegan for 2 yrs (yikes! I know...) it more or less stopped. But it did linger over the winter months, but was much better than it ever was.

    BUT, since going paleo, it has all but stopped and the scars remain. What was a real game changer was adding in a lot of vitamin D to my diet. I now take 6000 IU's a day and the psoriasis has stopped. But I check my levels and they were low even with 4000 a day so I might actually need more than 6000.

    My advice? Get his diet in check, cut out dairy especially and coffee (there is potential cross-reactivity with coffee and wheat gluten) and check his vitamin D status.

    Good luck
