Some patients with psoriasis complain to doctor when they visit doctor: “I have been very careful with my diet. I don't eat beef and lamb, I don't eat seafood. I even quit smoking and drinking. I only eat soy products and vegetables. The condition is still very difficult, why is that?"
Proper diet and balanced nutrition
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. In clinical records, we have observed that when general health of psoriasis patients is poor, such as overwork, bacterial viral infection, etc., psoriasis can often relapse or flare up.
From this phenomenon, we can conclude that occurrence and development of psoriasis and our individual health status are inseparable from each other. Eating only soy products and vegetables cannot fully replenish nutrients needed by human body, which will make our human body nutritionally imbalanced, and body's resistance will also decrease, which will relieve colds and inflammation. As one of causes of psoriasis, common cold can easily exacerbate or cause psoriasis, which may cause disease to recur in some patients.
Nutritional supplements are more important for patients with psoriasis
The white scales that come off from psoriasis cause a lot of protein and other nutrients to be lost in body, so more nutrients need to be added. Universal taboos are not recommended, as this will easily lead to nutritional deficiencies, which will lead to physical deterioration. Psoriasis simply takes advantage of situation and forms a vicious circle that causes great harm to health. patients.
Although psoriasis patients favor a light diet, moderate and appropriate supplementation is also very important to maintain their own nutritional balance. Finally, I would like to remind all patients with psoriasis that eating less does not mean that you can’t eat at all, diet adjustment depends on stage of disease.
