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):

– carrots

– spinach

– tomatoes

– lettuce and green leafy vegetables in general

– asparagus

– corn

– 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:

– peanuts

– 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.)

– semolina

– white sugar

– tea, coffee, alcohol

– fat meat, fish, poultry

In all cases it is essential to avoid stress as much as possible.
