“This is the longest I have been clear of Psoriasis in at least a decade”
Our friend and customer Matt has suffered from Psoriasis most of his adult life. He has tried everything over the years in an attempt to control his symptoms.
Matt decided at the beginning of the year to make a radical change to lifestyle and gave up alcohol, dairy and foods stuff containing gluten. He’s got some tips here.
“So my diet has been anti inflammatory – No gluten or Lactose and no booze, loads of green veg fruit, white meat and oily fish. Some people also don’t eat foods associated with the deadly nightshade family, like tomatoes and Aubergines.
It all sounds really bland, but actually it’s fine. Rice noodles and asian food do Umami and you can still have a roast dinner as well and occasionally goats cheese. Hummus and gluten free pittas for the win, if you eat meat make a chicken broth to use as a base for loads of differnt meals to add flavour and make sure you’re not rummaging around in the kitchen for snacks, frittatas for breakfast with goats or vegan cheese. Once you start it’s not so hard, just need to plan more. You can still eat Christmas dinner then!”
A noticable change did occur, but it wasn’t consistent and the Psoriasis persisted to flare.We introduced Matt to CBD following another of our customers success stories

Lou bravely agreed to talk to us about her battle with the sympstoms of Psoriasis. She has finally foudn sollace after 20 years of stuggling to find a remedy.
Matt’s finally found his sweet spot; a combination of The Tonic 8% taken orally and direct application of the Tonic 1% CBD infused coconut oil to the effected areas.
“I have seen new hair growth on my arms and legs which I hadn’t even thought would ever be possible again”
So how does CBD work? Topical CBD can maintains your skins natural flora and soothe irritation. With the 1%, the CBD’s carrying oil is raw organic extra virgin coconut oil, which the skin can absorb extremely well, taking the CBD deep within. Taking CBD orally has been known to help with anxiety, which can be a cause of skin issues, like Psoriasis, flaring up. It also balances out our endocrine (hormone) system, which in turn regulates subaceous glands oil secretion and its natural anti-inflammatory properties can ease a whole range of skin conditions.
Matt concludes, “I haven’t been good at sticking to the diet of late, but what with CBD and perhaps already calming down my inflammatory response, the results have been phenomenal”
