I Had Psoriasis!Hello everyone! I believe I had an interesting experience with psoriasis and was wondering if anyone else will find this story helpful.
I used to have psoriasis on my back, scalp and eyelids that was troublesome and caused hair loss, but was not super itchy and ugly. I was reading one day in a quack medical book and it said that people with psoriasis genetically have a very thin intestinal wall which allows some poisons in food (nightshades) to get into the blood stream where the skin then has to deal with it. Nightshades are a family of plants that includes tomatoes, potatoes, peppers (bell and chili), paprika, eggplant and more. I began to avoid these foods, though it wasn't easy. Cayenne (a type of chili pepper) was hidden in the sausage. Lycopene (derived from tomatoes) was hidden in my multivitamin. Pizza, Oh pizza! was cluttered with the stuff! French fries and ketchup, say it ain't so! But after 3 or 4 weeks, my psoriasis cleared up. Occasionally, I would eat something with nightshades in it, accidentally or not, and the next morning I'd see a patch of red itchy skin and have to be more careful for a week while it healed.
My psoriasis had vanished all right, but I sure missed the picante sauce on my morning eggs! One day I was tired of avoiding some of my favorite foods and with prayer from my Pentecostal church (www.bayrevival.org), I asked God to heal me of my psoriasis. I've eaten everything in sight since then and I've been psoriasis free for 2.5 months now! Thank You God!!!
I hope you will find encouragement in this!
