To those of you readers who are trying the diet modification for
psoriasis relief I have another item to add to the do not eat list.
Bryers ice cream. I purchased 2 half gallons a month ago. I ate
approximately 2 large scoops daily for one week. I completed one half
gallon and then started the second. My skin went absolutely crasy.
The affect on the skin is slow. Coming and going. Now about 3 weeks
later I'm on my way getting back to clearing. Anyone had simular
results? Click on GodfatherII to see my diet progression. Knock on
wood its working.

Just a note to say that the above only works if you're viewing this newsgroup
through Google or another archive like Google. AOL doesn't give me the option
of clicking on GodfatherII. Here is what one gets when doing so within
Google's newsgroup reader, though:

(Its for those sun worshipPing P fans that crave vitamin D)
NIH told regular and moderate exposure to sunlight is the key to
preventing chronic disease
(Oct. 9, 2003) –
The researcher who discovered the active form of Vitamin D, Dr.
Michael F. Holick, a Professor of Medicine, Dermatology, Physiology
and Biophysics at the Boston University School of Medicine, told the
National Institutes of Health's symposium on "Vitamin D and Health in
the 21st Century" that the nation faces "severe Vitamin D deficiency"
which, if not properly addressed, will have profound far reaching
health consequences such as hundreds of thousands of new cases of
breast cancer, colon cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure,
diabetes, depression and multiple sclerosis. Dr. Holick said, "We have
a severe unrecognized epidemic of Vitamin D deficient patients on our
hands. The public health issues at stake go far beyond bone health and
involve chronic disease such as breast and colon cancer and high blood
pressure. There is a mountain of well conducted, validated science
that demonstrates that the production of the activated form of Vitamin
D is one of the most effective ways the body controls abnormal cell
growth. Regular and moderate exposure to sunlight is the best way to
help the body manufacture the Vitamin D it needs. The idea that we
should protect ourselves from the sun all the time is misguided and
unhealthy. "Moreover, the 1997 daily recommended allowances for
Vitamin D are totally inadequate to protect public health. New science
supports a significant revision of the recommendation. Adults should
be getting 1000 International Units (IU) of Vitamin D a day, not the
200-600 (IU) that was recommended in 1997. Rewriting the recommended
daily requirements as soon as possible should be a top priority.
"Taking diet supplements or drinking foods that have been fortified
with Vitamin D is too often inadequate since a patient would have to
drink the equivalent of 10 days of fortified milk or orange juice
every day. Only regular and moderate exposure to sunlight fulfills the
body's needs. We ought not to be like the groundhog that is afraid to
cast a shadow on a sunny day.
For the past decade at Boston University School of Medicine, he has
pioneered the use of activated vitamin D compounds for the treatment
of psoriasis. This is now considered to be the treatment of choice for
this common skin disorder. Dr. Holick has published over 200 original
scientific publications, written over 200 reviews, and edited several
books including two that will be published next year. [snip]

question or two that benefits a whole bunch of folks in
As far as diet goes some of us have fiddled with it for
a long time. I find omega-3 fats to be beneficial on

I have been a psoriasis suffer for about 7 years now , and in November of
2001 I had to cut corn out of my diet due to a GI condition, and I have not
noticed any change in my psoriasis, if anything it has increased since then
howeve, so has my stress level at my job, which I know has a direct effect
on my psoriasis.
