    Got the book. Read it in two sittings. I’m totally on board. Not least because of the part where the lady with severe psoriasis saw a massive improvement.
    I too have severe psoriasis. It’s mainly on my feet and I can’t work, barely socialise and depressed.
    After careful research, I’ve sourced some recommended products and am focused on implementing the diet.
    I’m not exaggerating when I say that this could totally change my life.
    Would love to connect with anyone else in the same boat.
    I will keep you posted. XXX

    Good luck.. I’d say deffo focus on a healthy micriobiome but equally focus on no processed foods; no simple sugar; reduce carbs and substitute for healthy omega3 fats in the diet; also space meals out; don’t snack etc

    Absolutely.
    I’ve just finalised my meal planner and sourced everything I need.
    I’m feeling quite upbeat about it.
    Especially looking forward to bone broth. My Grandma used to make it when I was small and, if it tastes as good as I remember, I’ll be happy. Strangely my brothers used to hate it. She also used to encourage us to drink cabbage water too (she grew her own). Maybe Grandma’s knew best. 😀

    @coffeequeen – How is it going with your psoriasis.? I also suffer from psoriasis in my scalp, legs and elbows.

    Now I have been a month without sugar, almost no meat, but a lot of fish and veggies. I can see an improvement, but not that much though.

    Have a good evening

    My psoriasis is seasonal, and for the parts of the year when I have a particular problem, I drink a daily “seaweed smoothie” which reduces my psoriasis to almost nothing. I buy sushi nori sheets in the World Foods section at the supermarket. One packet contains five sheets weighing 11grams in total. I liquidise 2 1/4 sheets (5 grams) in a glassful of hot water to make an odd but not completely disgusting daily drink. I see excellent results within five weeks of starting. I have had psoriasis for sixty years and this is the only thing that has ever helped me.

    Argussie, I’m interested in trying the nori seaweed drink you mention. Do you drink the amount you mentioned (2 1/4 sheets) everyday? It sounded a bit much so I’d like to confirm it please. Also have you seen any difference or is it too soon? Thanks for your help, manyanna.

    If you look in the Seaweed and Psoriasis thread on this website, you will see that Pia Winberg gave this advice on 5 July 2017. It worked for me last year and this year it has worked for me again. Yes, I consume 2 1/4 sheets every day. Last year I blended it into homemade vegetable soup, but this year I’m taking it without the bother of soup. You will need to blend it into something liquid because it is too dry to chew on it’s own. I notice a reduction in itching from the start, and then the flaring up just stops. I have been taking it for five weeks and am more or less clear right now. Please post again if you try this and It works for you, as I try to tell people about this and nobody can be bothered to listen.

    Thanks for the reply and clearing it up for me. I will try it out, hopefully starting tomorrow and will repost results. Fingers crossed.

    Lovely to read these posts.
    I did start off rather well but, by February I got caught up in helping a friend with a new business venture.
    Little did I know how time consuming and stressful it would be. Consequently I neglected my own needs, my diet and the psoriasis came back with a vengeance.
    So I took a two week holiday.
    Plenty of sun, swimming in the sea, relaxation, lots of fruits and salads (meat free) and olive oil. I’m pretty stable now and have picked up the book again ready to get back on it.
    I’ve also taken note of the seaweed suggestion by Argussie and will be adding this to my plan. 🙂
