What to do to get the best nutritional support?

What to do to get the best nutritional support?

Healthy diet & supps: I am not sure what you are asking. The foundation of nutritional support is a healthy diet. No one diet is best for everyone but a diet emphasizing a variety of organic fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds & possibly organic dairy/eggs/meats in moderation is a good foundation (though it can be argued that a vegetarian or vegan diet might be healthiest for many). See comments for further advice. ...Read more

Sunlight in moderation helps clear psoriasis, but getting sunburned can cause it to flare. ...Read more
