naive... I also have rosacea, and the Paleo diet has helped me immensely. My face is clear and smooth right now, no red patches, no itching and burning, no dryness or flakiness.

Scroll back through this entire thread. We have all linked to many good sites, books, recipes.

I highly recommend starting with Mark's Daily Apple. He has some AWESOME articles, recipes, and tips to adapt to clean eating. As well as a really good forum for posting questions and getting solid advice.

No doubt, rosacea can be helped immensely through proper diet and eliminating environmental triggers. You can't help the genes you were born with, but you can surely control what you expose those genes to.

For some absolutely scrumptious recipes, check out PaleoLeap. Click the "Recipes" link at the top of the page, and feast your eyes! Who knew eating "clean" could be so sublime???

Re: Strict Paleo diet for A/I issues??

My dear husband has psorasis on his feet and occasionally on his hands. He never had it in his life until it flared up a year or so ago. He's 56 years old by the way. He started out using topical creams from the dermatologist and that helped for a while, but now he's having more flare ups that don't want to heal with just the topicals, so the doctor prescribed him methotrexate. He hasn't started taking it yet, because of all the side effects he's read about. Do you guys think that the Paleo diet would benefit him? If so, where do I even get started in regards to getting information and recipes? I've seen several recommendations in this thread, but it seems so overwhelming. I don't know where to begin.

I will try anything though to help him. I can't stand seeing him in pain from the skin cracking open on his feet and he can barely walk some days.

Thanks in advance for any direction you can provide!

Yes! karole, speaking from my own personal experience, those meds are poison. Pure poison. They work for awhile, but they are like putting a band-aid on an arterial wound. Until he addresses the ROOT cause of the problem, he will continue to go through med after med. The root causes are found in dietary and environmental conditions.

No doubt. It IS overwhelming!! All of the links and suggestions are a lot to digest.

Start with a small looseleaf binder. Broken into categories: Symptoms...Diets...Anecdotal advice... Testing... Big Pharma Meds... Paleo Diet... Recipes... Psoriasis... etc. Print out articles, links, research, etc. Make your binder an "active" process... IOW, keep what makes sense and "fits"; toss the rest.

This is how I approached it. The anecdotal and Paleo suggestions provided me with all the ammo I needed to RETHINK my entire way of eating, living, being.

Our "modern" society is killing us. That's all I can really say.

PM me if you would find it helpful .

Correct. I haven't had just one test.

I'm okay with occasional meat consumption, much to my daughter's dismay. In fact, I would call myself a "Pegan" (Paleo-Vegan). Dr. Mark Hyman is also a Paleo-Vegan. He talks about why he makes this choice here: Why I am a Pegan – or Paleo-Vegan – and Why You Should Be Too!.

Venus Williams, professional tennis player, has Sjogren's and she is also vegan, but calls herself "cheagan" (cheating vegan) because sometimes she will have a steak.
There's a great documentary about whole food, plant based diets called "Forks over Knives" ( available on NetFlix).

They also have a website with recipes.

I highly recommend it.

Personally, I'm ok with a little chicken or fish per day. But making animal protein the center of your meal is a quick recipe for an early death, along with the pain and suffering that come before it.

I have to disagree with this.... Maybe it works for you, but my experience is that Low Carb is the way to go, veggies and meat...

As much as I complain about Western Medicine, I don't encourage self-diagnosis.
Agree.
