Our focus today is on whether or not the Carnivore Diet can alleviate Psoriasis.
Instead of just treating the symptoms with overpriced creams and lotions. I think it is much more important to resolve the underlying issues.
The molecular mechanisms underlying autoimmune and inflammatory diseases are one area of autoimmunity study that is receiving significant attention. Psoriasis is extremely prevalent, and it is believed that there are nearly a hundred different autoimmune diseases. When the immune system becomes overactive and begins attacking the body’s own tissues and organs, this is known as an autoimmune illness. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s defense mechanisms attack healthy skin and, in severe instances, joints, resulting in psoriatic arthritis.
The gut is the primary site of immune system development, so it stands to reason that bad gut health would be linked to psoriasis. The intensity of psoriasis may be mitigated through improved gut health and immune regulation. Psoriasis, like other inflammatory diseases, is exacerbated by chronic inflammation. While the immune system’s initial reaction to an injury is protective, chronic inflammation can increase the risk of developing additional diseases and even death.
Our everyday choices, which we can actively shape, have a major impact on both our gut health and our levels of inflammation. Psoriasis and other inflammatory disorders can be effectively treated when patients take responsibility for their own nutritional and slumber routines, physical activity, and stress management.
Psoriasis is a multifaceted inflammatory disorder characterized by a wide range of manifestations. Psoriasis symptoms may include, but are not limited to:
- Scaly red patches on the epidermis that cause pain and itching.
- Infections of the cuticles and broken nails
- Skin that is discolored, desiccated, and brittle
- Anxiety and emotional anguish
There are many different kinds of psoriasis, and some are more common than others. Symptoms and signs vary widely between subtypes.
Gut health, chronic inflammation, genetics, nutrient deficiencies, elevated stress levels, and psoriasis all add to an overactive and confused immune system, though the exact cause of psoriasis is still unknown.
Fortunately, psoriasis sufferers have a lot of leeway in terms of how they can manage their symptoms and treat the underlying problem. The carnivore diet is one method that has benefited many people in these success stories on my blog.
How to heal your psoriasis with a carnivore diet
Psoriasis affects more than just the skin; it can manifest in other ways as well. Taking care of your stomach, reducing inflammation, and giving your skin what it needs can all have a profound effect on your skin’s appearance because the skin is a window to the health of the body’s internal organs.
Take away the inflammatory sugar and other meals
Dropping sugar and other inflammatory items from your diet is the first order of business. As an extremely addictive substance, sugar must be avoided at all costs if one is to see rapid progress. Most of the foods on the grocery store shelves are rich in inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids, especially processed and packaged junk food, soda, and industrial oils like soybean, corn, and cottonseed oil. You can avoid them by reading the labels of commonly eaten foods like salad dressings, granola bars, mayonnaise, crackers, breakfast bars, cereals, wraps, pop tarts, and goldfish crackers. Choose instead wholesome whole meals.
Increase your intake of Omega-3 fatty acids
Inflammation and cutaneous irritation can both be alleviated with the help of omega-3 fatty acids. The fat of grass-fed animals, eggs from chickens reared on grass, butter, and ghee from grass-fed cows are all good places to find omega-3s. There are substantial benefits to be gained from increasing your intake of omega-3s while decreasing your intake of omega-6s.
Get your nutrients in
The epidermis, like the rest of the body’s tissues, relies on protein for its structure and function. As the skin is the organ most frequently affected by psoriasis, high-quality protein is crucial for managing the disease. Good sources of protein for mending damaged skin and intestines include lean meats like steak and seafood, gelatin, and bone broth.
Incorporate more nutrients into your diet that can help your complexion
Psoriasis is a skin disease, and vitamin A is essential for good skin production. By triggering the growth of new skin cells, stimulating the production of collagen, shielding the skin from UV radiation, and bolstering the oil glands near hair follicles, it serves to safeguard and repair the skin. The greatest food sources of retinoids, the active form of vitamin A, are animal liver and animal fats. Liver, cod liver oil, butter, whole milk, and egg whites are also excellent natural vitamin A sources.
Stay away from meals that can harm your digestive system
If you have a leaky gut, your immune system is likely to be continually misfiring because it isn’t getting the signals it needs from the gut. You should stay away from gut-damaging foods like gluten, dairy, and refined foods.
Consume a lot of fluids
Maintaining hydrated epidermis requires drinking plenty of water. It aids in detoxification, keeps the skin moist, and stimulates new cell development. It is recommended that you drink 2 liters of water daily.
Psoriasis flares can be triggered by worry, making stress management essential. If you need to de-stress, try some slow breathing, yoga, or meditation.
Take care of your sleep needs
Getting a good night’s rest and staying asleep is important for our physical and mental wellness. Getting a good night’s slumber can do wonders for your productivity, memory, and focus the next day. In contrast, not getting enough shut-eye can cause a host of unpleasant side effects, such as lethargy, irritability, mood swings, and even melancholy.
In conclusion, psoriasis, a chronic inflammatory skin disease, responds well to the carnivore diet. The carnivore diet has been shown to be effective in treating psoriasis because it reduces inflammation in the body by omitting common dietary triggers like wheat and dairy.
The high protein and nutrient content of animal-based meals can also aid the healing process and improve skin health. It’s worth stressing that the carnivore diet isn’t for everyone and that cautiousness is warranted when considering it.
It is best to get the OK from a doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet, and this is particularly true if you have any kind of health condition.
However if you would like to get started on a carnivore diet, then I would recommend this 30 Day Carnivore Diet Challenge.
