Psoriatic Arthritis | Naturopathic Doctor | Rose of Sharon Holistic

Psoriatic Arthritis Lifestyle Recommendations:

•   Engage in strength-building exercises that don’t stress the joints such such as swimming, water aerobics, or stationary biking

•   Incorporate weight reduction program, if needed, to lose any excess weight

•   Use hot and ice packs to manage pain and inflammation; relax in a bath with plain MSM powder

•   Check for IgG food sensitivities, gut dysbiosis, and AA:EPA ratio

Dietary Tips and Caveats for Psoriatic Arthritis:

•   Reduce sugar in the diet; avoid white flour products and refined carbohydrates

•   Avoid safflower, corn, sunflower and soybean oils, which aggravate inflammation. Instead favor flax oil, fish oils, fresh fish, raw nuts and seeds.

•   Avoid nightshades of peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, and eggplant if necessary

•   Avoid fried foods, trans fats and partially hydrogenated oils which may contribute to inflammation

•   Eat a diet according to the Paleo template – low in grains and free of allergenic foods such as gluten, dairy products and citrus

•   Consume PaleoMeal® or Whey Cool™ to raise glutathione levels and to keep blood sugar balanced throughout the day; can also use PaleoBars™ for snacks along with healthy fats such as nuts and seeds
