Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition of the skin, which results from a faster skin-cell cycle. The extra skin cells build up as red patches and scales, which may sometimes bleed or itch.
Psoriasis is not contagious. This means you cannot get psoriasis from being in close contact with person with psoriasis or from coming in contact with his/her clothes or other personal articles.
Like all autoimmune conditions, psoriasis occurs because of an interaction between genes (more than 80 susceptibility genes (1) Ref have been identified) and the immune system, triggered by different environmental factors in association with gut barrier dysfunction.
What is lifestyle?
According to the Cambridge English Dictionary, lifestyle is someone’s way of living; the things that a person or a particular group of people usually do.
In this post I will consider the acronym SEMM under “lifestyle”:
- E-Eat (Food, drink)
- M-Mind-body Interventions
