As part of your healing process, it is important to see for yourself how you are contributing to your own psoriasis problems and how you can take charge of your own life to create the kind of health you really want. Unfortunately, some people I have seen with psoriasis donâ€™t appear to have a strong sense of personal accountability for their own health.
But this evidence is quite obvious when it comes to health in general and not just psoriasis, because there are many high-risk behaviors such as smoking, drinking alcohol daily, eating take away too frequently, surviving on nutritionally depleted, refined or highly processed foods and living a sedentary lifestyle (no exercise) which are all potentially predisposing factors in a number of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
Iâ€™m always optimistic nevertheless that I can encourage psoriasis patients to overcome many of these high-risk behaviors and move into wellness behavioral patterns if they choose to do so.

Iâ€™m going to let you in on a little but vital secret, are you paying attention?
Learn to act upon the conviction that your health is primarily within your own hands, not the doctorâ€™s, your mother-in-lawâ€™s, your partners; itâ€™s in your hands. Thatâ€™s what self-responsibility is all about, and so is a full and complete recovery from psoriasis. Are you ready to accept complete responsibility for your health?
But why you ask is everybody around me telling me that somebody they knew just got diagnosed with cancer or heart disease? Isnâ€™t that just a consequence of getting older? Not really, there are just too many people today developing seriously chronic and avoidable diseases prematurely, self-responsibility clearly hasnâ€™t caught on in any big way and it is because many people just keep on living without any thought of the future when it comes to their health. One of the biggest factors accounting for insufficient self-responsibility in our society today is a clear lack of effective health education.
You may not have been taught a lot of the dietary and lifestyle concepts you will read about in the Psoriasis Program, and I encourage you to investigate your current diet and lifestyle and ask yourself why you are not getting the permanent results you desire. Maybe itâ€™s time for a change, and while I canâ€™t persuade you unless you are committed and ready to make those necessary changes, you will almost certainly discover that the amazing benefits of asserting your sovereignty and autonomy will be more than sufficient to reward your efforts. You can have amazing health if you want to!
