My bathroom is where I keep the arsenal of psoriasis creams, jells, medications, experiments etc. Easier to find when it’s all in one location. So, yesterday I was doing a bit of tidying up and I found my container of glycerin. How could I have forgotten?….well, life has been a little hectic to say the least…..
Glycerin is fantastic stuff for those of us who suffer from this skin condition. Unfortunately I can’t give you a link to the NPF Inspire site as I have been permanently banned for being a bad girl (which would include spreading the word about a natural remedy which doesn’t cost an arm and a leg and that has no side effects–that would be k2, D3, Magnesium Chloride, No dairy).
Anyway, there was a guy who Continue reading “Glycerin….another little bit of magic for the skin”
I felt like moving away from the protocol–in the sense of looking at how an emotion might affect this disease called psoriasis. And I remembered three different parts of books that have the possibility of hooking together.
One was from a book of Chinese medicine or healing that spoke of the liver as being the seat of anger. Another was one of those you-can-cure-your-psoriasis books that we all fall for at least once–but that did have two good suggestions. Continue reading “Anger & Psoriasis…a love story?”
Well, so much for my little experiment with goat milk yogurt. I only had to eat it once before a couple of little spots showed up on the inside calf of my left leg. Now, most people wouldn’t have even noticed them–or maybe thought they were mosquito bites–but I knew better:(
So I thought it would be a good opportunity to experiment on topical medications. I tried tar, cortisone–the old standbys– and those little spots didn’t budge. Now, they didn’t get worse but they stubbornly sat there, staring at me.
The next step was to increase my D3 and k2. I had been on a maintenance dosage for Continue reading “There’s something about Dairy:)”
So, Charlie, I just read your lightning horror story. And your take on stress and psoriasis. My friend, Julie, explains it by astrology. It all makes sense when she’s talking about it but then I totally forget it.
Stress is weird. I kind of wonder if you get to release it somehow…now this is another story from Julie. It seems some animals, when they escape from the jaws of their predator, they shake their body fiercely–releasing the tension. Then they just walk away.
But we got a brain, which can mess things up. We don’t Continue reading “Stress and Psoriasis”

Ok, this has been one stressful year. Starting back last summer when I was covered with psoriasis. Then having a remission that was so fast that it put my body and mind into shock. Then learning how to host a thread on the NPF. Then dodging and diving the trolls. I actually found myself reading “The Art of War”in an attempt to keep my head together. Then finding that we were being shot down by the very people who we thought wanted to help people get rid of their psoriasis. Shock and disbelief!!!
Then deciding “to hell with them” we’ll Continue reading “No Psoriasis…but I forgot to have fun!!!”
Well, as you may already know, we are lucky to have guinea pigs to experiment on. That would be OURSELVES:) So, I read something about there being two kinds of milk. Most of North America use one kind and Australia (and some Asian countries) use the other. Supposedly, the kind used in Australia is less disruptive to the immune system.
The only milk in North America that falls into the ok category happens to come from Continue reading “TAKING A RISK WITH DAIRY”
Remember to stay Well hydrated, drink lots of water. It kind of goes without saying, but to many of us are so concentrated on our Psoriasis that we overlook the importance of staying well hydrated, it will really help and its so easy that it is overlooked! ….Do it!
Here is a good link on Hydration I find very informative.
Come on in and Bitch …. I am going to!
We started a Web site to help people Honestly (Not for money) and what happens!, the Ass holes who pretended to be helpful to psoriasis sufferers decides to give us shit! (Why) ?
because it works! without putting Money into the Big Company’s Pockets! What a crying shame, that there are so many companies ready to make a buck off of other people’s miseries. As Gomer Pile would say ……. Shame Shame Shame.
Today I received my second letter from the NPF sponsored Team Inspire. This company (which monitors the discussion groups on the National Psoriasis Foundation), and which states: Continue reading “Oh, how I wish this wasn’t true….but it is!”
Perhaps a better title for this blog is “a handful of luck is better than a truckload of wisdom”!!!
Here’s a little background information. Incidence of psoriasis in North America and Europe is around 3-5 people per 100. In Asian countries it’s around 1-2 per thousand. Now, that’s a pretty hefty difference. My first theory Continue reading “Magnesium Chloride: Part of the reason for lower incidence of psoriasis in Asians?”
