    Thanks for the support. He is hardheaded and resistant to any ideas of change I have. Right now I am trying to get him to quit eating grains as I really think that would help the psoriasis. But if I can convince him to try I will let you know!

    In terms of your son, the real thing that I would try to work through is the psoriasis. My husband had this for years (from undernourishment), and he managed to heal it largely through dietary changes. It's amazing what cod liver oil can do.

    You might ask your son if he would just like that single discomfort to go, and if he does, would he be willing to work with a naturopath/nutritionist to make it happen?

    I know a good one (who works with my husband). She's here in Aus/NZ (bounces between the two countries), but she does skype sessions and all you have to do is send the samples away for testing and such. She's very non-judgmental and a great problem solver.

    If you (or he) is interested.

    I think that starting with one thing and seeing if you can get results over time makes a difference. One moves from fixing one problem to the next to the next to the next.
    You know all those things you wanted to do: You should go do them.

    My husband's psoriosis was greatly improved by consuming grass fed butter, cod liver oil, and bone broth. It's easier for people to add-in than take-away. Fermented veggies will also help with his gut flora, even if he is still on grains/etc.

    After he has add-ins, then he can start taking away -- if he wants.

    It's worth a consdieration, at least.
