Winter tips for Psoriasis Sufferers

Winter is the coldest season of the year. It is a time when many feel lethargic and unmotivated as the body needs to rest and meditate while gaining a small amount of weight in preparation for the colder months.

Below are some foods to add to your winter diet:

Vegetables: asparagus, alfalfa, cabbage, carrots, celery, endives, lettuce, parsnips, spinach, turnips, watercress

Fruits: apples and pears

Meats: lamb, chicken

Fish: Atlantic mackerel, bluefish, monkfish, Pacific salmon, red snapper

Winter Handy Hints

  1. Meditate – it’s the time of year to feed your body as well as your soul. Often psoriasis exacerbates in winter and keeping calm will minimise the outbreak.
  2. Exercise regularly as the colder months can often result in an exacerbation of psoriatic arthritis resulting in more joint aches and pains. By keeping up a regular exercise regimen you are promoting blood circulation and consistent endorphin release to keep you positive and healthy.
  3. Sleeping early will promote the healing process of your skin. The cold weather can often intensify the pain in your skin and joints. Getting to sleep early means you can minimise exposure to heating (which dries your skin), while simultaneously promoting the healing process.
  4. Stews are a great idea as they fill you up and warm you all over, while providing intense nutritional content.

Winter is a beautiful time of year. It’s the time we can snuggle up with a blanket and enjoy warm meals that are filled with nutrition. For some, it can be a time of lethargy and lack of motivation as the days shorten and the nights become cold. It is for that reason our diet needs to alter with the change in season to nourish our mind to regulate emotions, promote gut health to boost immune health and nourish skin health to cope with the change in weather.
