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.

Louise Hay states, ““Probable emotional cause of skin problems (hives, psoriasis, rash) is anxiety and fear. Old, buried guck. I am being threatened” in her book Heal Your Body.

Louise Hay believes every disease is connected to an emotion. Over a period of time, this emotion manifests into a dis-eased state, which can be seen in the body as a physiological change to the healthy state of the body.
