Can a psoriasis diet be the new psoriasis cure? Well the National Psoriasis Foundation has received a number of claims from former psoriasis suffers about the positive effects of certain foods and supplements on their psoriasis symptoms. However, due to the variation of psoriasis symptoms, life style habits, medical histories, and individual backgrounds it’s hard to pin point exactly what type of psoriasis diet is best for everyone.
For example, what dietary change may have worked well for one person and put their psoriasis symptoms in remission may not work for another or may even make some symptoms worse. These factors make it difficult to determine exactly what type of diet a psoriasis patient should follow. However, there is no harm in experimenting with your diet to see if a change can positively affect your condition. – as long as you don’t endanger your health.

In fact, the National Psoriasis Foundation states "As more people become active partners in their treatment, interest in alternative medicine has grown.
A survey released in May 2004 conducted by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) and the National Center for Health Statistics found that in 2002, 36 percent of U.S. adults were using some form of complementary and alternative medicine."
However, most natural products have not been very effective for most types of psoriasis, like rapid skin cell replication which causes skin cells to produce much faster than normal healthy skin and results in that white, scaly, thick, patches you often see in psoriasis suffers.
