Help Cure Your Psoriasis With These Great Recipes
Part of the joy of cooking is choosing the ingredients- especially when this involves selecting fresh fruit, herbs and vegetables and trying out new, unusual and exotic foods. Always buy the freshest ingredients possible, they contain more vitamins and minerals and have a much better flavor and texture than preserved foods. Grains, pulses, flours, cereals and herbs and spices, however, generally keep for at least 3 months, so it is worth maintaining a small store of basic dry ingredients, particularly those that need to be soaked or cooked in advance. It is also useful to keep a small selection of canned or bottled fruit, vegetables and beans for emergencies. But try to select those without artificial additives or a high sugar or salt content and use them by the “best before” date.
The range of “healthy” ingredients has grown dramatically in recent years, particularly low-fat, reduced sugar, reduced salt, high fiber and vegetarian alternatives to traditional foods. These open the way to both a healthier and a more varied diet and offer endless possibilities for personal variations. The success of a recipe depends as much on the quality of the raw materials as on the way you combine them. In many cases, it is better to use a fresh alternative than to use the specified ingredient if it is not at its best – use fresh, ripe peaches, for example, in place of hard or over-ripe nectarines. The following web pages illustrate some of the familiar as well as unusual ingredients found in the recipes. You will find advice on choosing and storing food, together with useful information about the origins, culinary applications and nutritional value of specific ingredients.

Western Medicine is Crisis Medicine
As you are no doubt aware, our current¬† Western medical ¬†model ¬†is designed ¬†to merely treat the symptoms of your psoriasis without ¬†determining ¬†the¬† underlying ¬†causes. Unfortunately, you are all too often ¬†prescribed¬† medication after expensive medication, creating ¬†more ¬†symptoms or ¬†side effects that require even more medication. Before you know it, you end up sicker than when you first went to the doctor. Is there much discussion in the doctor’s office about your lifestyle and diet and the link with psoriasis? Probably not, you may be referred to a dietitian if you are lucky, and even then, you may end up with a diet higher in processed foods, artificial sugars and “quick fixes” than I would like. For over twenty five years, it has been been my mission through my work to help people optimum health and wellness by encouraging healthy lifestyle and dietary habits, as well as helping to break the cycle of dependence on damaging and sometimes even fatal consequences of the current medical model.
Unhealthy Diet And Lifestyle Are Key Psoriasis Triggers
Remember some time ago, not that long ago in fact, when people cooked most of their meals at home? When people, like your grandparents perhaps, grew many of their own fruits and vegetables? Sure, there have always been “bigger” people in our society – but certainly nothing like the obesity crisis we now face in the Western world. Poor diets including convenience foods, processed foods and take-away foods have all been implicated in helping to cause the wave of many chronic health conditions we commonly see in our developed nations, including psoriasis, heart diseases, diabetes, cancers, along with many other chronic and degenerative illnesses. A move back to healthier eating is part of your permanent Psoriasis solution, and that is why these healthy recipes should be top priority when it comes to helping you beat psoriasis once and for all.
