Psoriasis affects about 3% of the global population. It isn’t contagious, and there is no need to isolate yourself away from friends and family. However, it can look unsightly and can feel very itchy and sore. Some of the main causes of psoriasis include an autoimmune disorder, genetic and environmental.
Anyone can develop psoriasis at any age. However, it seems more common in those in their 30s and 60s.
If one of your parents suffers from this skin condition, you have a higher chance of developing it yourself. You may find that certain triggers can start a flare-up. This could be an allergic reaction to something or broken skin due to an injury.
Psoriasis And Diet – Examining several Dietary interventions.
It has been widely established that psoriasis and diet are interrelated. It’s impossible to say with 100% certainty to what degree a person eats affects the development, expression or progression of psoriasis, just as it is difficult to determine how well dietary interventions serve to prevent, treat or cure the condition.
Many individuals sense a connection between psoriasis and diet and begin experimenting with various ways of eating, including but not limited to vegetarianism, veganism, raw foodism, paleo diet, gluten-free diet, etc.
While eating healthier Psoriasis Diet is vital, most people misunderstand what’s healthy and what’s just misinformation on eating correctly, and it’s not their fault.
For example, in the United States, the population has been lied to and effectively mass-poisoned by its government in the interest of the agricultural lobby. This is illustrated perfectly by the abomination that is the Food Pyramid. The food pyramid was produced by the US Department of Agriculture in 1992 and shoved down kids’ throats in public schools (myself included) as a model of perfect nutrition.
In this pyramid scheme, children were taught (while the rest of the country was similarly indoctrinated via television and other advertising channels) that grains should account for the vast majority of a person’s diet and that meat and fats should be consumed. Irregularly!! This obvious scam was exposed, forcing the USDA to redraw the pyramid into a slightly less dishonourable version that is STILL way off base.
For psoriasis sufferers, this is a scary and significant fact because gluten – a highly inflammatory protein in wheat – is not only a potent gut irritant but an ostensible allergen for over 2 million Americans and a tacit inflammatory agent to every single human being on the face of the earth. Gut irritation causes gut permeability and holes in the gut lining, interfering with nutrient absorption and exacerbating the autoimmune response.
In one study, psoriasis patients with gluten intolerance were put on a Gluten-Free Diet (GFD). 30 out of 33 patients strictly followed this diet and showed a substantial improvement in psoriatic lesions! Many psoriatic experience remission of the disease upon cessation of grain consumption (and any botanically related foods, e.g. rice, quinoa, pasta, etc.)

Since psoriasis is an autoimmune condition, the best way to prevent, treat and cure it is to correct the malfunctioning immune response in the body, whereby the body mistakenly attacks itself out of biochemical confusion. A systematic introduction of foreign chemicals causes this confusion into the body, and the primary way this happens is through diet.
But going vegan or going raw isn’t the answer by a long shot. Veganism still technically allows grains, rice and other indigestible foods. It’s also very common for vegans to be deficient in many vital nutrients and vitamins in high concentrations in high-quality meats and organ meats. 100g of beef liver contains more nutrients (without the sugar) than a combination of dozens of fruits and vegetables.
This begs the question: If there is such an intimate psoriasis diet connection, what should one eat to prevent psoriasis, treat it and cause it to enter remission?
To answer these questions, we have to look at what human beings have evolved to eat. If you feed the wrong food to an animal that has grown to eat a certain type of food, it will almost invariably become ill. This is exactly what’s happened to human beings. Human beings’ last “iteration” evolved eating large quantities of meat, organ meat, and high-quality fat. This was supplemented by nuts, seeds and vegetables, as well as small quantities of seasonal berries.
There’s no escaping the fact that psoriasis and diet are so powerfully connected, and preventing, treating and curing this unsightly disease begins with a truly healthy diet. This way of eating is popularly called the paleo diet. Individuals who have adopted this way of eating have sometimes seen miraculous reversals in disease processes, visible aging, energy levels, and more.
