Getting Rid Of Inflammatory Foods
The first step to correcting an autoimmune condition is to get rid of inflammatory foods, which cause chronic inflammation in the body. Foods that are high in refined sugars and carbohydrates are first offenders. They increase the inflammatory response by causing irritation to tissues. Psoriasis occurs when the immune system attacks the skin. Other inflammatory foods to avoid include soda, candy, sweets, gluten, dairy, hydrogenated vegetable oils, artificial sweeteners and additives, and soy products.
