My Secret Experiment! (BLOG #26)

MY SECRET EXPERIMENT

Over the past 5 months or so I’ve been privately working with a Canadian man in Saskatchewan with a nasty case of plaque psoriasis.

He used 40,000 iu daily of the D3. And k2mk7. And the magnesium chloride topically. And no dairy. Well, almost no dairy. He had a habit of eating a small container of yogurt several times a week which he decided not to give up. Continue reading “My Secret Experiment! (BLOG #26)”

Well, this inspiring audio is about Lisa’s 3 month battle (and it has been a battle) with a brutal psoriasis flare. Continue reading “WOW! This is inspiring! (BLOG #23 PODCAST)”

The Koebner Phenomenon (BLOG #21)

You know when you scrape your elbow and a few days or weeks later you have a flare of psoriasis where you damaged the skin? This is called the Koebner Phenomenon. It’s where psoriasis plaques appear at the site of cuts, abrasions, new tattoos, etc.

What I didn’t know about this was… Continue reading “The Koebner Phenomenon (BLOG #21)”

What I learned from this flare (BLOG #19)

I had a choice with this most recent flare–freak out, get depressed, hide, feel helpless and hopeless. And, in truth, I did have some moments of all of these less than stellar emotions.

BUT, there was this part of me that kept saying “use this flare for some experimentation”. Continue reading “What I learned from this flare (BLOG #19)”

I want perfection; Charlie, not so much. (BLOG #18)

I called Charlie, in Kansas. We hadn’t spoken for quite some time and I needed a Charlie fix. See, Charlie and I are quite different animals when it  comes to psoriasis (and a number of other things:) Continue reading “I want perfection; Charlie, not so much. (BLOG #18)”

3 ESSENTIAL TIPS when using our Protocol (BLOG #16)

I get quite a few letters from psoriasis sufferers who are starting the Protocol.  Some are desperate. Some are worried. Some are afraid. They want advice.

This got me thinking about three very important parts of the protocol that don’t involve the actual 4 parts.

They are: Continue reading “3 ESSENTIAL TIPS when using our Protocol (BLOG #16)”

New, important information re: HIGH DOSE VITAMIN D (BLOG #15)

Funny how something that seems bad turns out to be good. This little flare I’ve been experiencing sent me to do some more research on Dr. Coimbra’s protocol (the protocol similar to ours). We discovered our protocol by dumb luck. But finding Dr. Coimbra’s research gave us more confidence that we were on the right track.

Although I never stayed on the high dosage D3 for extended periods of time (the longest was two months and that was almost five years ago). Mostly I take 10,000 iu daily as a maintenance level. The only other time I increased was when I had a flare a couple of years back. That’s when I found out that it wasn’t just dairy that was an issue, but also anything fortified with calcium. An important piece of the puzzle.

Well, this new flare has given me a couple of new pieces.

A Hard Lesson Learned (BLOG #14)

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)”

Back after a “time out”! (BLOG #13)

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)”

Gratitude Heals the Mind (BLOG #9)

Remember last week’s photo? Dated August 21, 2014? My skin was covered with masses of bright red spots and plaques? Diagnosis=severe psoriasis.

This drawing was made 3 weeks plus 2 days later–using the high dosage D3 and k2mk7. Massive improvement. I had no idea how much my life was about to change…. Continue reading “Gratitude Heals the Mind (BLOG #9)”
