After almost five years psoriasis free (minus that flare a couple of years ago that taught me that anything “fortified with calcium” was a bad as dairy) I got a little wake-up call.
I have to be honest, I was experimenting [CHEATING]( with a little dairy now and then, forgetting to take the supplements once in a while, and running out of the Life Extension Super K and using a substitute.
The result=a few too many new spots of guttate psoriasis. It was nothing like I used to have but it was enough to get me worrying.
I upped my vitamin D3 from 10,000 iu daily to 20,000 iu daily. Nope, it didn’t help. My skin got more spots. I really Continue reading “A Hard Lesson Learned (BLOG #14)”
I needed some time away from social media. The book (now entitled “Make Your Bed”) is finished and the next step is to find a great literary agent (who likes quirky spiritual stuff:) This is a whole different kind of writing–putting together a package with synopsis, bio, marketing, etc.
And while I was letting myself get stressed about all manner of things, I also got sloppy with the protocol Continue reading “Back after a “time out”! (BLOG #13)”
2014 was the first time my dog, Lucky, saved my life. I was almost ready to give up. My skin was worse than it had ever been and the itching was driving me mad. Suicide was looking like an attractive option. Continue reading “HELP! (BLOG #12)”
We’re a tribe—those of us who suffer from psoriasis. A tribe that can be recognized by red spots and plaques and a tendency to hide away. Rarely seen at swimming pools. Sometimes smell like tar…lol. Continue reading “Our Psoriasis Tribe (BLOG #11)”
My apologies for being a bit late with the Blog this week but I was locked out of Microsoft Word (where my book resides) so I couldn’t record the audio. This happened because I finally took the plunge and got a new (for me) I-Mac computer. It’s actually previously owned but sweet it is. And boy is it F-A-S-T!!!! Yikes.
I’ve been noticing how many people, with psoriasis, Continue reading “An Exciting Week! (BLOG #4)”
September 2018 FFP letter
Goodness, it has been a long time since I put fingers to keyboard to write to you all. But in my own defense I have been completing my latest book “Rise & Shine” in which the main character, Truman, has psoriasis.
It has been a very interesting process. Sometimes magical. Sometimes frustrating. Sometimes just plain hard work. But I’m happy Continue reading “September 2018 Gratitude Letter”
BEWARE ALL CALCIUM FORTIFIED Foods and Drinks!
I wasn’t sure if I’d get the chance to bare my arms and legs this summer but by returning to the original dosage of the protocol…
- 40,000 iu soft gel D3
- 4-600 mcg Life Extension Super K
- no dairy (OR dairy substitutes “fortified” with calcium)
- magnesium chloride used topically
…my skin cleared in about 6 weeks and Continue reading “Clear Again–It’s the Demon Calcium:)”
If you didn’t read the July member letter, here is a second chance to learn something NEW (to Charlie and me) that will affect the efficacy of the protocol.
VERY IMPORTANT NEW INFORMATION
First, I apologize for taking so long to write this letter but trust me, it’s worth it!
Remember, in the last letter, I thought that my birthday celebration (which included a bit of dairy and a lot of alcohol) had caused a flare of psoriasis on my legs and arms.
I WAS WRONG.
It took 2 agonizing months before I had a hunch Continue reading “BIG, NEW AND IMPORTANT INFORMATION re: CALCIUM”
