Diet and Psoriasis???

I have read that your diet helps your Psoriasis. I found what they call the “Anti-Inflammatory Diet” and minus the red meats, it’s really close to the Paleo Diet (from what I can see). Here’s some information on the diet… Recipes to follow!!! =) 

 

Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Psoriasis is an inflammatory disease. Many individuals benefit from following an anti-inflammatory diet to help reduce their symptoms.

Foods to avoid because they have been shown to cause or increase inflammation include:

  • Fatty red meats
  • Dairy products
  • Processed foods
  • Refined sugars
  • Nightshade vegetables, including potatoes, tomatoes and peppers

Foods to include in your diet that have been shown to reduce inflammation include:

  • Coldwater fish. Fish contains omega-3 fatty oils. Fish rich in omega-3s that has been shown to reduce inflammation include albacore tuna, mackerel, salmon, herring, and lake trout.
  • Flaxseeds, olive oil, pumpkin seeds and walnuts. These are plant sources of omega-3s.
  • Colorful fresh fruits and vegetables. Focus on eating foods from the colors of the rainbow.

Nutritious examples are:

  • Carrots
  • Squash and sweet potatoes
  • Spinach
  • Kale, and broccoli
  • Blueberries
  • Mangoes
  • Strawberries and figs
