    is there such a thing as a diet specifically for those with Psoriasis?

    i really want to be able to follow a program or i will never do it on my own.

    my Doc is vegan and wants me to consider a vegan diet. i am researching and find it very strict although it is uber healthy with no meat and no dairy.

    what is your diet like? mine is too high fat but i do well with fruits and veggies. i need to eat more grains.

    if there is a Psor diet, i will be the first in line to try it!

    Dear Denise,
    I treat many psoriasis patients, and haven't found any specific dietary triggers, but if you look on the website of the National Psoriasis Foundation, psoriasis.org, there is a book written by a chiropracter which gives a diet for psoriasis. Try it and see if it works. Good luck!
