What type of food we have to take for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis any natu

Anyone tell what food we have to take for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

  1. Hi anav12

    I find myself, like you I'm sure just totally overwhelmed by the amount of info on the web about this topic. There are loads of articles about anti-inflammatory foods, spices, etc out there.

    My question is, If the condition is auto immune, does that type of diet have any effect on it? I know that obesity can really affect the joints but I dont think introducing or eliminating certain types of foods actually impact the disease.

    Interested to hear what others have to say on this.

    1. Hi and Cshell. Dietary changes are an interesting topic in relation to PsA. They can make a huge difference or no difference at all. My own theory is that individual sensitivities and allergies can cause inflammation. So, if you are allergic to gluten and you eliminate gluten, you will feel better. Same with dairy and a whole host of other foods.
      Here is an article from one of our advocates who found that genetically modified foods and non-organic foods along with foods that contain high fructose corn syrup were triggers for inflammation:
      Your best bet might be to eliminate one food group at a time for at least a few weeks and keep a journal. See whether your symptoms improve without any foods from that group. If they do, add that food group back into your diet. Are your symptoms worse? Remove it again. Do they improve again?
      This will help you determine whether certain foods are triggers for you, personally.
      I hope this helps. Best wishes! - Lori (Team Member)
