It has been shown that might improve the arthritis of psoriatic arthritis. Research has shown this to be a helpful dietary modification. There is no other universally effective , or foods to avoid, for psoriatic arthritis. There are also no dependable home remedies for psoriatic arthritis. However, supplementation may be beneficial for both the skin and joints. In Europe, people have bathed in the Dead Sea for psoriasis treatment.
I've had Psoriasis since I was in my late teens / early 20's (Im 37 now). Over the past 3 1/2 years I have developed some fairly mild joint pain that is pretty wide spread. I would say my pain level is about a 2 or 3 on a scale of 0-10 (10 being the worst). Its not horrible but it is enough to be annoying. And it is constant 24/7. This effects many joints in my body (some finger, toes, upper back, shoulders, neck and to a lesser extend both hips and knees.) I went to see a rheumatologist a few years ago but he just said it was osteoarthritis (at the time it was only effecting a few fingers, toes and one shoulder). I've recently been thinking its psoriatic arthritis because #1 I have psoriasis and #2 my mother has psoriatic and psoriatic arthritis.
My question is this... I really want to stay away from prescription medication as long as possible (because of all the nasty side effects etc.) What are some good natural / home remedies for psoriatic arthritis? Thanks for your response!
