  • garteful mom "grateful mom" - itworks

    I just want to add my results to the many reviews for this book. My daughter, 6 y.o., has guttate psoriasis for almost 8 months now. Right when she was diagnosed with it I asked the dermatologist what I could do about her diet. He said nothing. We went to a total of 4 dermatologists and they all said the same thing. The last doctor speiciailized in pediatric dermatology gave me three choices for treatment: UV light, methotrexate, or biologic injections, besides the high potency steroid creams that she prescribed. At first the creams worked great but as all psoriasis patients know that oftentimes their efficacy wears off. I was so desperate about the "incurability" of this disease. I found this book on Amazon. I read and reread the book and decided to call Dr. Pagano to get clerarer instructions since I was going to be trying it on a little girl. He gave some helpful suggestions and assured me that if I follow through, my daughter will see results. I started the diet in mid December 2008. After 2 weeks, I started to see a flareup. I was very worried but Dr. Pagano warned that a purging reaction may happen. I started giving the slippery elm , saffron tea, and lecithin after 1 month of the diet (January 2009). After 2 months of the complete regimen, her scalp is now clear and the lesions on her back, chest, bottoms are almost gone. The areas on her legs and arms are fading away. If you are a parent of a child that suffers any diseases, I'm sure you know how ecstatic I felt! I don't use any drug right now on my daughter. It's such a good feeling to be able to not have to put any harmful medication on a little child. I just wanted to write this for other parents who are searching for a treatment for their children. The diet is difficutle for a picky child but the results are worth it. Your child may lose some weight but hopefully with time she will see that it's a lifestyle that will give her clear skin and be able to wear clothes that she likes instead of trying to cover all the red spots.
