A new diet, created by Mike O’Brien, has the potential to help those who suffer from psoriasis and arthritis get back to living an active and pain free lifestyle. O’Brien, who has dealt with the autoimmune diseases psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis for decades, has seen miraculous results while using the diet.
Psoriasis is an uncomfortable, and sometimes painful, skin disease that causes the body to create skin cells too fast. This abnormal growth causes the skin to become thick, white and flakey. Rheumatoid arthritis is most common in joints in the hands and feet. The disease causes these joints to become inflamed and makes using them very painful.
One of the unique things about this diet is that it has been created by someone who has first hand experience with the diseases it treats. O’Brien understands very well the effects psoriasis and arthritis can have, including pain and immobility, and it was those painful symptoms that prompted him to create the diet.
Before implementing the diet, O’Brien had psoriasis on large portions of his body including his legs, back, elbows, forearms and torso. At one point, his arthritis was so acute, he couldn’t straighten his arms and his fingers and many other places ached, forcing him to leave the workforce.
For years, O’Brien had looked, unsuccessfully, for ways to treat his pain and other symptoms. After seeing several doctors and trying different treatment options as varied as methotrxate, and hypnotherapy, he decided to try a new approach to treating his psoriasis: changing his diet. The first step O’Brien took was eliminating red meat and food high in protein and carbohydrates from his diet. He later added supplements to the diet, and today, is living proof that he has found a winning combination.
The diet, which O’Brien found to be effective in treating both psoriasis and arthritis, has made it possible for him to do things he hasn’t been able to do for years. He can now bend over, kneel and get in and out of low seats without any pain. Things most people take for granted, like knocking on the door and getting in and out of the car, are things O’Brien can do pain free again for the first time in years.
The diet, which is available at psoriasis-inc.com is just US$32. It calls for eliminating some food entirely and eating other food in moderation, as well as taking dietary supplements. The diet can help people avoid eating food that will irritate or even worsen their auto immune diseases such as psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, making it possible to manage the diseases.
For many people, this diet doesn’t require drastic change, but it does require an understanding of what kind of food irritates psoriasis and arthritis and what food can lead to a pain free life.
This diet can be a very effective way for many psoriasis and arthritis sufferers to manage one or both of the diseases and get back to living a life where they aren’t restricted by immobility and pain.

I was first afflicted with psoriasis towards the end of 1979. My doctor at the time advised me to consult alternative medicine people.
In the early to mid 90s I became aware that certain processed food that was high in protein and carbohydrates would adversely affect my psoriasis. So over the years I experimented with my diet but it was not until January 2010 when a naturopath hooked me up to a software program she had in her laptop and gave me some advice that things took a turn for the better.
During 2011 I was advised to make an appointment with Dr Joanne Cummings @ Back to Basic Wellness Centre in Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia. After some tests Dr Jo recommended adding a couple of supplements to my diet and when I followed her advice my arthritis symptoms started to improve. I continued to experiment with supplements, sometime as a liquid other times in a capsule and I have made major improvements to my arthritis; particularly to my knees where I have rheumatoid arthritis. Things I could not do before like bending my knees are now relatively easy to do and I can actually kneel down on either knee. Getting into and out of the car was real painful but it is a breeze now. I have added videos to the site showing me doing these things.
Unfortunately Dr Cummings closed her clinic in February 2013 and returned to England. Our loss is Englands gain.
Before I managed to get everything to come together simple everyday things like sitting in a low seat (I am sure you know what I mean there) or sitting on the sand or the ground was not possible mainly because of the pain in my knees. Had I have manged to sit down I would not have been able to get up unaided.
