This week is a good week. I have a huge amount of relief. I’ve gone from this: My Psoriasis has covered my feet, legs, thighs, buttocks, private parts, stomach, back, forearms, armpits, shoulders and scalp. There are very few places that it was not on.. I am at month 4 of a very concerted effortContinue reading “Psoriasis relief”
I’ve always been the foodie in the family. Well before I was married, before I was finished secondary school (pre-university), I had an adventurous palette. If mum wanted someone to try something, I was always the first to put up my hand. And as those teen years transformed into early twenties, I was eager toContinue reading “Food and more food”
I was thinking that maybe this blog is nothing more than an outlet for my complaining. Grumpy man syndrome… but if it was then it would contain no benefit for either the reader or myself. I realise that there is a quantifiable benefit, in both mental and physical health by writing down the journey andContinue reading “Taking stock”
I used the ripple of water metaphor in an earlier blog to say that stress and crisis moments in life do pass. Another metaphor is the expression “Ebb and flow”, typically describing the ebb or receding tide, followed by the inevitable flow or return of the tide… and so it is with treating Psoriasis… RememberContinue reading “Ebb and flow”
I mention dietary decisions as being a trigger or factor in Psoriasis on several blogs. Some schools of thought would say that while Psoriasis is multi factorial (meaning that it’s complex), diet is a key factor and probably the one we have most control over. I have several family members and friends that attest toContinue reading “The diet blog”
As I write this weeks post, I’m exhausted again. My Psoriasis is creeping back and as I have to be truthful at all times, I missed some treatment days and skin care sessions. As the title of the blog says: A week is a long time Often misquoted and attributed to Harold Wilson The thingContinue reading “A week is a long time”
At the start of this journey I stated on the main page of the website that “no Dr had provided relief or quality advice on living with Psoriasis, and all they do is prescribe topical steroids that never work” I decided to deal with both of these elements “Dr’s” and “steroids”… so at the beginningContinue reading “A doctor”
The site has a new logo. Easy enough to make using http://www.looka.com And I have had some more progress with the treatments. The last picture was a bad time, the middle showed that it was still spreading (you can see that in the top right of both pictures) The first picture is a happy place.Continue reading “Subtle Progress”
I continued from the last blog, with great enthusiasm but as the days past, I found that my brave statement about dealing with the sting of the Dermalex was to be my undoing. Bottom line is that while the Dermalex is showing results, I jumped in and used it on over half of my PsoriasisContinue reading “Change is in the air”
So after a week of ensuring that I moisturise and treat each patch of Psoriasis, there are tangible results… The observations : Significant reduction of inflammation – You can see the roaring red colour on the first image and how much paler it is on the second image. Large reduction of plaque development, I wasContinue reading “A week makes all the difference”
