August is Psoriasis Awareness Month!

Psoriasis affects nearly 7.5 million people in America alone, making it the most common autoimmune disease in the nation. Despite this, many people are still largely unaware of the disease's affects and impact.

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that manifests on the skin. The most common form, plaque psoriasis, appears as raised, red patches covered with white dead skin cells. The cause of psoriasis is unknown, but specialists do know that it is mainly affected by genetics and the immune system. Therefore, changes to diet are often suggested to lessen symptoms.


The Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research (MFMER) suggests that individuals with psoriasis eat a diet rich in:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Low-fat dairy products
  • Lean meats and fish

Fish oil is also believed to improve psoriasis symptoms, according to MFMER.
