Persons suffering from psoriasis (a chronic skin disease characterized by scaly reddish patches) should take Vitamin B9, combined with Vitamins B12 and C.
A lack of Vitamin A can aggravate a psoriasis condition. Good sources (in the form of retinol) are:
– liver of fish and animals
– fat in dairy products
– egg yolk and (in the form of beta-carotene):
– lettuce and green leafy vegetables in general
– melon, apricots, oranges
Remember that dried fruit contains more Vitamin A than fresh fruit.
– Even a slight overdose of aluminum can cause psoriasis and digestive problems. Try to avoid cooking with aluminum utensils.
– Also try to avoid acidifying foods:
– asparagus, Brussels sprouts, artichokes
– egg white
– fat broth
– processed meats, liver, kidney and other organs
– white flour and derivative products (white bread, pastry, biscuits, etc.)
– strong fermented cheese
– lard and other solid fats
– refined oils
– dried legumes (lentils, peas, beans, etc.)
– white sugar
– tea, coffee, alcohol
– fat meat, fish, poultry
In all cases it is essential to avoid stress as much as possible.
