Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

This was a genuine post on the psoriasis sufferers' website.  It came with a number of people who had found it helpful.  As psoriasis is caused by a number of things, there is no guarantee that this will work for everyone, but if intestinal imbalance - gut flora upset - is the main problem then it may well be a great help.
 

A description of the experience

This diet/supplements regime cleared my skin of all psoriasis

Posted by alisonchesterlambert on 10th February 2012 12:02PM

I was diagnosed with pustular psoriatic arthritis in 2004. By 2005 I had it all over my palms and the soles of my feet and I was in agony. I tried all the NHS solutions and it made the pain worse in all cases. Then in 2008 I began to research seriously, looking at the academic studies coming out of China. (I am a Masters degree student myself)

It became obvious that one could not cure psoriasis topically, treatment would begin in the gut by addressing mal-absorption problems and in particular healthy gut flora. (Since then, NewScientist has reported on the growing scientific awareness of how a healthy gut environment affects all manner of the bodies `systems`.

I found an obscure diet which rang a bell with me, so I tried it out. It worked. Within two weeks, all the psoriasis had gone. If I relax my regime and allow myself the privilege of any kind of sugar, it is back with a vengeance, so I have proven this diets efficacy to myself over and over again.

Here's what worked for me!

Absolutely NO smoking! It really makes it worse.

Absolutely NO sugar AT ALL. So that's no fruit sugar either. No fruit or fruit juice. If I have any fruit, the condition returns.

Every day, morning and night, I have 200gms of Yeo Valley organic, natural, probiotic yoghurt. (NOTE - NO sugar!) This is to flood the gut with good flora.

Daily Supplements:

2 x Bio-Kult Candea capsules. (Again for gut flora)
1 x high strength Milk Thistle 350gms at 80% silymarins
1 x ultra high strength 5MG Biotin (from Nature's Remedy) - this stuff makes the gut flora healthy - it uses it to construct itself.

And that's it! The BIG one is giving up smoking and sugar. You can tell if something has sugar because it tastes sweet. IF it tastes sweet..... you can't have it! It's that simple. I hope this helps some people - I would LOVE it if others got the relief I did!

Two other people I know did this and both had clear skin after 2 weeks. It works for eczema too!

Best Wishes, Alison Chester-Lambert
