i've had 'p' for 25 years. the waiver: everything i recommend or say is my own opinion and works for me you will have to do your own research and experimentation.

steroids, enbrel, humira, bleach!!!!!! all of these take care of the symptoms not the cause and do more long term damage than help . steroids thin your skin over time, enbrel and humira suppress your immune system (definition of immune system - network of cells, tissues and organs working together to protect the body from attacks by germs, bacteria and disease) does that sound like something you want to suppress. for the love of god go to clorox bleach website and look at the safety tab (wear gloves when cleaning, bleach will corrode metal parts!) i don’t use bleach products to clean much less take a bath.

there is no quick miracle cure for 'p'. these creams and babies butt aid (which contain lead and cadmium only control the symptoms not the cause. temporary relief. you put cream on your “p”, the spot goes away and you think it “works”. but new spots pop up somewhere else so did it really work. “p” is an internal disease. think of “p” like chicken pox. the virus causes your skin to break out. you can put cream on your skin but until you get rid of the virus inside your body. your skin will continue to breakout. fix the inside and you won’t have to use any creams. you can only control it through diet. dr. john paganos book is good reference material but for me is incomplete. the premise of this diet is anti-inflammatory and reduce toxin intake.

first thing is go 100% organic. there is too much crap (pesticides, hormones and unlisted ingredients) in processed foods which is hard on your immune system.

do a body cleanse (whole foods has some good ones)

do a food allergy test to eliminate trigger foods that are specific to your body.

eat an alkaline diet (raw fruits and vegetables should be at least 50% of your diet. i'm lazy so i make vegetables shakes. (rice milk and 3 or 4 vegetables and fish oil with vitamin d3 and coconut oil) if you need it sweeter add grapes or apples. the roughage is good for cleaning your intestines (small price to pay for clean skin).

blueberries seem especially helpful.

i eat chicken, turkey and fish (low mercury like tilapia, no tuna) no red meat too hard to digest.

i drink distilled water only. many states put fluoride in their water which wreaks havoc on your immune system. yes that includes tooth paste. i use fluoride free 'natures gate' no cavities since using it :) - google 'fluoride toxicity'. Chlorine is bad too. they kill the good bacteria in your digestive tract. I use a chlorine filter on my shower.

i drink fruit juice but water it down by 90%, too much sugar. for cereal i use rice milk or almond milk (soymilk is bad - contains estrogen and causes a lot of problems - google 'dangers of soy') (cow’s milk is too hard on the digestive system. if not organic it contains hormones and antibiotics) goat milk is a good alternative if you can handle the taste.

only whole grain bread and pastas (processed white flour products are highly inflammatory)(gluten free diet is beneficial)

the deodorant i use is 'thai' liquid form. i've tried every natural deodorant out there and this is the only one that works. it's awesome. most deodorants have propylene glycol or some form of aluminum junk in it. use natural shampoos, soaps and household cleaners. it reduces the amount of toxins getting in through your skin.

stuff to avoid:

night shades- tomatoes, tobacco, eggplant, paprika, all peppers, goji berries and white potatoes (sweet potatoes okay, is considered morning glory) night shades all contain toxins which overload our immune system. hard to eat out with this list :)

all refined sugars (highly inflammatory)
no white or cane sugar, no high fructose corn syrup. alternatives in moderation: stevia is the best, agave, coconut syrup, brown rice syrup or honey. needless to say all artificial sweeteners are never allowed (sucralose, aspartame, saccharine, sorbitol, xylitol and many more. chewing gums and diet products contain all these poisons). if it says diet don’t buy it. Sugar is the main cause of my “p” getting worse.

no shellfish, fried foods, yeast, alcohol, smoking, smoked foods, peanuts, and reduce stress.

your skin goes through a 28 day cycle. it normally takes 2 months to get my skin almost clear. what normally happens with me is my skin normally gets a little worse at first, probably from the toxins leaving the cells and going into the bloodstream. after a week there’s no more flare ups. after two weeks or so the red patches start to heal from the center out. you will have a red circle but the middle of it will heal first that’s how you know if you’re on track. the rest of the healing process is up to you depending how dedicated you are to avoiding toxins and sticking to the organic diet. it’s really simple - if i'm on the diet my skin gets better, off the diet, my skin gets worse. i have no one to blame but myself.

it takes time for the body to heal itself. so if you’re looking for a quick fix or not willing to make some changes for your health. you will continue getting frustrated and your “p” will continue to get worse. this diet works just give it time!!!!!!!!! put up or shut up!

in addition to getting plenty of sunlight (without sunscreen! 99% of all sunscreens actually cause cancers. because of the chemical that get absorbed by the skin. google 'sunscreen dangers'). probiotics are very important. 80% of your immune system is located in your digestive system. the proper ratio of bacteria in your gut is 85% good bacteria, 15% bad bacteria. when this ratio gets out wack, it starts creating a lot of problems. thats why it so important to eat an alkaline diet. thats why when you drink a coke it kills all the bacteria in your gut. never drink any of these poisons ever. i use new chapter probiotics. its a little more expensive but it has prebiotics that help the proboitics flourish. good luck.

excellent. the best is vitamin d3. the best source is sunlight. its free :) only supplement if you can't get sunlight or spend a lot of time indoors. just don't burn and don't use sunscreen. sunscreen will put more toxins in your system. be patient. should see results in 2 or 3 weeks but will take a couple of months to really clear up. if you have flare ups try to identify what caused it (food, soap, ect.) stuff like coloring your hair. i've heard a lot of women have flare ups after that. tons of toxins getting in through your scalp. good luck :)

Crissy

Thank for sharing your remedies. I have started using Dr. Bronner Magic Soap and I love it for my skin but not so much for my hair. My skin has improved. Plus, before I read your article I started to change my diet to eating more raw vegetables and it my health over all has improved. I have psoriasis mostly on my scalp and I'm still looking for a good organic shampoo that might help. Any suggestions?

crissy i am glad its helping. shampoo is very personal. for me i can't use lavender scented shampoos makes my skin break out. weird. some organic brands are aubrey, avalon, alterna, giovanni. when i buy shampoo, i look to make sure it doesn't have parabens, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate,phthalate, butylene glycol. i've used aubrey and avalon. they are pretty good. i hope this helps. let me know if i can help with anything else. best wishes :)

i just found out flu shots contain mercury!!!! a very nice nurse at a major chain spoke very openly with me. ask if it contains thimerosal as a preservative. it's 50% mercury!!!mercury is stored in your kidneys and does neurological damage especially your to your brain. i would rather have the flu than mecury wreaking havoc on my neurological system.

Seroflorous

You may want to check your sources on xylitol.It is widely used in Europe and even purposely given to children. it has proven benefits for suppoting/improving dental health and is a low glycemic sweetener. I understood that it is sourced from sweet birch trees. It is sold in bulk or by the pound at my local food coop where one can also purchase xylitol sweetened gum, mints and lollipops....sorbitol, on the other hand...now that's a 'dirty bird'.

seroflorous great catch :) i made a correction on 8-15-12 about 10 comments up. i can't correct it on the post so i had to do it on the comments. have a great day. pura vida :)

Sue

I read that you have tried many natural deodorants and shampoos- I was wondering if you agree with and/or have used Melaleuca's products? I have had 'p' for 9 years and I am going to try to heal from the inside out! Thanks for all your suggestions- so interesting!

sue i know some one that sells melaleucas products but for me its has unacceptable ingredients because our digestive system is not working properly we have to be extra picky about any toxins. i looked up their deodorant which contains propylene glycol (your skin is your largest organ and many things get absorbed by your skin and leaches into your bloodstream wreaking havoc on our immune system. their toothpaste has fluoride extremely toxic ( i use natures gate fluoride free toothpaste). the drinks that they sell has sucralose-highly toxic. if it were me i would not use their products, there are better alternatives. if you read the comments i put extra info on there. it will help you do your research so you will understand why we can't use so many of these products and food. i'll try to help anyway i can. good luck :)

I am covered with p as you put it. I have tried everything except your diet and if I have to live that way I'd rather die. No it is not my fault. I was just lucky to have it passed in my families genes. I take a kenalog shot ( steroid ) and it lasts quite awhile. Trying to home cure it is miserable. I have enough to do, and I do eat healthy, just not as healthy as you. I think you are blaming the person that it was passed to. Sad, they do have a 4 injection method of getting rid of it, and my friends swear by it. I don't like the maybe side effect of cancer or TB. I know you were trying to help but you came across as blaming and rude.
