I was diagnosed with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis in 1979 at age 25.
It tortured me for years. Intermittent flare ups turned into large, permanent plaques on my torso, elbows, eyelids, inner ear, head, groin and buttocks.
The pain and discomfort was so bad some days I considered giving up.
In 2001 I had a particularly bad outbreak. I was living in a beautiful house on a lake but didn't know I was allergic to a mold that grew profusely in the water there.
Within a year my allergies were so bad I could barely breath, and my psoriasis was as bad as it had ever been in my life. My skin was cracked and bleeding through my shirts. I threw dozens of them away.
One day, out of desperation, as NONE of the usual ointments and UVB light treatments were working, I sat down and thought of what possible natural solution might at least lessen my suffering.
I decided to start with food. I needed to lose about twenty-five pounds, which made my psoriasis even more painful.
One day, it came to me as I was brewing on the subject: WHAT DID WE AS HUMAN BEINGS EAT BEFORE WE HAD ANY TOOLS OR AGRICULTURE?
Certainly not any sugar. I knew from years of trial and error that foods high in sugar --- I LOVE PASTRY AND COFFEE!! -- made my psoriasis worse.
So, I devised an eating plan that I felt would help me.
Sugar(s) -- including any type of pasteurized fruit juices, honey, maple syrup, etc.
Grain(s) -- of any type including rice.
Dairy Products of any type
Oils -- with the exception of cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil
Fermented Products -- wine, vinegars, etc.
Animal Proteins -- low fat, skinless chicken, etc. cooked at low temperatures
In six months my skin was completely clear. In addition, my cholesterol went from 288 to 126. My doctor was so shocked he retested my blood. My LDL cholesterol went from 320 to 70 and my triglycerides went from 300 to 65.
Of course, over time, I went back to eating the dangerous and fattening, highly processed diet that I had most of my life. BOOM. My psoriasis came back in spades.
A few years later I tried the A. C. E. regimen again, and, again, in six months, my skin was completely clear.
I've done it five times since 2001. Most recently starting on January 14, 2013. In six weeks the thick, bleeding plaques on my torso were quiet. Smooth. But the skin is still red.
I will keep you posted as my progress continues.
Not an easy eating regimen to stay on, but, I KNOW THAT IT WORKS. I've had over a dozen other people with psoriasis try it and they had the same results...WHILE THEY STAYED ON THE EATING REGIMEN.
