What Diet is Best for Psoriasis? What you eat can make Psoriasis Worse??


hi and welcome back let’s talk about psoriasis if you or a loved one suffer from psoriasis then you know it can be literally devastating to your social and personal life if it gets out of hand I’ve had patients over the last decade who have had severe severe psoriasis when they first came to see me and it’s it’s just terrible it’s a terrible disease to have most of my psoriatic patients when they find out that they can have some control over their psoriasis they’re very happy about that so what I’m going to talk to you about today is how you can take control of your psoriasis and you’ll always have the predisposition to have it but you can make it so much better without slathering expensive creams and gels on your top of your skin and also without taking expensive medications that dumb down your immune system and put you at risk of serious infection but first take a moment please and subscribe hit the little button I think it’s right there it won’t kill you just to click that button so that I can share this word with other people okay now let’s talk about psoriasis now I in other skin videos I use the House of the barn analogy let me go through that quickly just so we’re on the same page if I decided to build a barn on my farm and I used the shoddiest crappiest cheapest materials I could find and then a few years later my barn started having holes in the roof and started to fall in wood we blame it on the sun shining on my barn is that what made the barn get holes in it or maybe we would go to a barn doctor and we would say doctor my barn it’s only a few years old and there’s holes in it and it’s falling apart what should I do and the doctor the barn doctor would whip out his barn doctor prescription pad and he would write a prescription for a very very expensive paint that you would paint on the surface of your barn once or twice a day and he would tell you that’s gonna make your barn it’ll it’ll close those holes up and it’ll make your barn stronger it does I mean any farmers out there does that sound like a good plan to fix your barn I don’t I don’t think so I certainly wouldn’t pay for that expensive paint or he might say you know me let me write you a barn doctor prescription for this expensive stain or varnish and you’ll put it on every day or once a week or anything like that and that’s gonna make your barn better that’s that’s a silly analogy I don’t have to go any further for you to understand that’s dumb that’s never going to make your barn stronger it’s never gonna make the holes heal up and go away that’s not how you fix the barn so your barn in order for it to last for years and years and be beautiful you have to build it with the right materials to start with right now let’s move from the barn to your skin did you know that your skin completely replaces itself every six to eight weeks so eight weeks from today you’ll have an entirely new skin with completely new skin cells none of the old cells will still be there they’ll all be gone your body will have harvested them broke them apart got the parts out to use other places and those skin cells are gone so every two months basically you have an entire new skin so we have to think okay so if slathering expensive creams and gels and lotions on our skin that’s silly because really you’re only just spreading those on the dead skin cells on the very top the stratum corneum that’s not gonna help anything those cells are already dead or about to die and all the skin cells are going to be replaced within six to eight weeks so how does it make any sense to pay hundreds of dollars for a lotion you’re gonna spread on your skin it doesn’t make a lot of sense does it what you’d rather do is you rather build your skin out of the right materials to start with you’d rather have that I have the right vitamins on board and you don’t want any poisons on board and you don’t want any inflammatory toxins on board okay and that’s the three main ways to make your skin better is to feed your body the things that it needs to build good healthy skin to start with that’s number one number two you want to take the right vitamins so that you have the right biochemical processes going on in your skin that’s number two and then number three you don’t want to put any toxins in your body because a lot of times they’ll come out or express themselves through problems in the skin so if slathering on expensive medications that’s that silly we’ve established that but now there’s this other class of medic patience for psoriasis that if you have psoriasis or you have a family member with psoriasis I’m sure you know all about them they’re super expensive and they actually lower your immune systems ability to fight infection so it basically makes your immune system blind or dumb different analogies of ways of looking at it it’s actually much more complicated than that but it increases your risk of developing other infections if you could control your psoriasis in a more natural way wouldn’t you like to not spend all that money to lower your immune systems ability to protect you I would so here’s the three things that you need to do to get your psoriasis better and I’m not saying you’re gonna cure your psoriasis because you have a you have a genetic predisposition to toward psoriasis so you may always have a little patch here or there or you may completely clear and then have a little patch come back from time to time but if you follow these guidelines closely you’re gonna be so happy with the improvement you have in your psoriasis number one you have to eat the right diet and in my 10 years practice what I have found that works for psoriatic patients is the keto diet ketogenic diet or the Paleo diet within the Paleo diet being very heavy and good fats okay you want lots of medium chain triglycerides you want lots of coconut oil you want lots of real grass-fed butter your your skin needs that you need that fat to build good skin you need protein to build good skin I tell patients in the office every day there is no such thing as an essential sugar there is no such thing as an essential starch for an essential carbohydrate if you never ate another sugar or starch your skin would be great it wouldn’t hurt it and would probably help but there are essential fats that you must have or you’ll die as an organism but you’ll also have bad skin until you die there are essential amino acids which make up proteins that you have to have or you will die and you’ll have bad skin before you die you have to have fats you have to have proteins in order to build the kind of skin you’re looking for okay number two is vitamin D I have had patients who are on multiple hundreds of dollars a month worth of psoriasis medications both topical and to take my mouth and to take my injection or infusion and we’re able to stop those medications by either taking five or ten thousand units of vitamin d3 a day and a lot of doctors will shake their heads and they’ll get that worried look about you taking that much vitamin D but in my office I always check a vitamin D 25 level to make sure that your vitamin D levels not getting too high if your doctor is willing to do that with you then that’s a very safe way and I’ve seen 8090 percent clearance by just taking five or ten thousand units of vitamin D a day the third thing is you’ve got to stop putting toxins in your body because that’s going to inflame your gut that’s going to inflame your skin neither of which you want okay an inflamed gut for some people will result in inflamed joints or an inflamed brain or inflamed skin and for you it’s your skin it’s your psoriasis if you smoke or use tobacco in any form you have to stop that that is making your psoriasis worse it’s costing you money it’s costing you health I’m not saying stop today but you need to start some sort of three-month wean down process or do something you have to get that toxin out of your body the same goes for wheat liquid dairy soy corn all these things are inflammatory in nature they inflame your gut which winds up for you and flaming your skin you have to stop the toxins
