After struggling with psoriasis for 35 years and also psoriatic arthritis for 10 years, I started out 4 years ago with the natural route. I went to 5 or 6 natural doctors. First was give up wheat and dairy. Did nothing to fix it. Next was acid/alkaline diet. Helped but not much. I did an allergy test and only ate acceptable foods I was not allergic to. Helped but not enough. I chased down Candida, leaky gut etc..etc.. I did the blood type diet. That helped a lot but I lost so much weight I was really limited on what I could eat.
So recently I went to a new naturopath. She said that Candida was just a symptom just like my other afflictions of a root problem. Made sense. Then I stumbled across Low stomach acid or hypochorydia. I went back to the best diet I believe which is proper food combining. I eat fruits for breakfast, carbs and veggies for lunch and the same for dinner or sometimes flesh and veggies. When I eat carbs or protein I take upwards of 8 to 10 hcl capsules to break the food down. I believe genetics had a play in this for I am a blood type a+ which they are born with low stomach acid.
It has been 2 to 3 weeks and my skin is drastically better. 90% of americans have low stomach acid. It causes just about every condition on this website. Follow the proper food combining, take hcl, vitamin u which is cabbage juice pills and stop chasing symptoms down. When food does not break down, it sits there and rots, causing all these problems. The liver and kidneys become taxed causing autointoxification, I believe is the term, which is like drinking booze all day. No good. I hope I helped someone today. It took me four long terrible years to get where I am at. I hope and pray and continue to eat right and get healthier day by day. Brad
