Psoriasis "Cures"

Apparently what works for some doesn't work for others. Here are some suggestions that have worked for some.
- "Some get relief by cutting out all traces of gluten from their diet. As so much gluten is hidden, it's possible that it could be the common factor, but most people inadvertently eat hidden gluten and then assume the diet is not working. In some research where the patients had a controlled gluten free diet, the majority had a reduction or complete clearing of their symptoms."
-Herbs that seem to help are: Nettle Leaves, Silymarin and sarsaparilla.
-Essential Fatty Acids in fish oil and flax seed oil will help psoriasis.
-Adelle Davis says that lecithin could cure it, several tablespoons a day.
-lack of Vit. D and sun is a big factor. Take cod liver oil, sit in the sun in summer.
