I have been told by my derms that Psoriasis is an inflammatory disorder and also related to immuno something or other. Well, in the last couple of years, I had bleeding after a few bowels movements and I thought that was related to fissures. I also had more cramping and thought that was related to mushrooms when I primarily ate at Japense hibatchi restaraunts like Benihanas. Anyway, I have had two colonoscopies and no findings, none of Crohns disease or irritable bowel syndrome or coilitis.
I was wondering if any other psoriasis suffers have had bowel-related problems or been told that they also have inflammatory issues there. That is why I read that Barney's formula thread and thought that adding Flaxseed and Fish Oil supplements would kinda help both problems: psoriasis and the bowel. The Vitamin D supplement makes sense for the skin, and the Ibuprofen makes sense for both.
