Try turmeric for psoriasis, digestion

Full story: Newsday

I want to thank you for writing about turmeric for treating psoriasis. I developed this condition two years ago, and it made my skin very itchy and sensitive, as well as unsightly.

FYI: Psoriasis, arthritis, thyroid disease are all issues with autoimmune system, I found acupuncture worked for me on all three problems.

You may want to buy a bar of Neem soap as it too works on psoriasis and does a great job of healing and relieving itching, pain, infections etc.. on skin.

I had a sore on the crease of my leg and foot for past 10 years and I put Neem Oil on it and within a month it had totally dried up and my skin is all like I never had a sore there. It was always red, bleeding, oozing with blood and white liquid and it itched beyond belief and no steroids or medication patches given by my doctor or dermatoligist helped unitl I used Neem.

Neem can be bought at local India stores or online just Google it.

My daughter has Psoriasis and since she's been on a gluten, wheat and dairy free diet, her stubborn patches of psoriasis are under control. My daughter said she never realized how important diet can be. Even tomato sauce causes outbreaks so she has also eliminated it from her diet, although she can have an occasional cherry tomato in her salad without effect. Try eliminating one of these foods at a time and see if you don't notice a difference. It's amazing what it has done for my daughter.

use the turmeric spice when cooking....turns the food a golden yellow. not too much of a strong taste. smells though.
it's very good for you:

I take two turmeric capsules in the morning and have for months. I do believe it has helped somewhat. Taking a couple of fish oil capsules, around 2,400 mg a day is a good idea too.
