What does an anti-inflammatory diet have to do with psoriasis? That is the exact phrase I Googled when I started educating myself on what psoriasis really is and how nutrition could play a key role in managing it. I’ve had psoriasis for 20 years and I’ve tried everything under the sun when it comes to diet and lifestyle changes. By looking online, talking to other people with psoriasis, and testing different strategies, I’m here to say that, at least for me, focusing on anti-inflammatory foods can make a huge difference.

First, let’s get this out of the way: I don’t like the word “diet.” Changing how you eat in order to better manage your health is more of a lifestyle change, but you get the point. It’s also about understanding what exactly you’re putting into your body and how that affects your immune system – and therefore, your psoriasis. I learned all there is to know about an anti-inflammatory diet and making this change has helped my psoriasis immensely.
