Flaxseed oil

February 28, 2013 — 9:46pm

I have had psoriasis for many years and at times it has been severe. I have used many medications with limited results. 3-4 years ago I was on a clinical trial for Enbrel which worked well in the beginning but it’s effect diminished over time, after about 1 year. About a year & a half ago I tried flaxseed oil caps, 1000mg 3 times a day. That has helped me nearly as much as Enbrel did in the beginning. This has helped me a lot. I am one of the rare ones that cannot take sunlight when I am flared as it causes it to turn into Pustular Psoriasis, which is very painful. When I am not flared I can tolerate some sun; last summer I had no problems from sunlight. Thank you for all your work.
