If someone had told me just over a year ago that I wouldn’t have psoriasis or that I’d be swimming in a public pool  or that I’d be part of a team running a website about psoriasis, I’d have told them that they were just plain crazy.

But here it is–my first anniversary psoriasis-free. It has been a steep learning curve to be sure. With many positive experiences. I got Continue reading “1 YEAR WITHOUT PSORIASIS”

Psoriasis-free…..Part 2

Nope, not everyone was happy. As a matter of fact there appeared to be some pretty angry people on the site who didn’t like what we were doing and certainly didn’t like the good results we were getting.. They posted scare tactics (particularly about the high dosage D3)–about the negative side effects. And they were relentless.

Our thread was constantly under attack–warning letters, threats of suspension, posts deleted. When Charlie was given a two week Continue reading “Psoriasis-free…..Part 2”

Coming Up For My First Year Psoriasis-Free!!!

Wow! Talk about a year!!! Not sure I’d like to repeat all of it–ha! A steep learning curve in some areas. But I have to remind myself that throughout it all–the stress, the changes, the challenges–my skin held. I can’t remember another year in the past 47 when I wasn’t battling psoriasis on some level.

And so much happened. There I was just over a year ago–90% of my body covered with a combination of plaque and Guttate psoriasis. Continue reading “Coming Up For My First Year Psoriasis-Free!!!”

Glycerin….another little bit of magic for the skin

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”

Anger & Psoriasis…a love story?

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?”

Stress and Psoriasis

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”

No Psoriasis…but I forgot to have fun!!!

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!!!”
