"Psoriasis and nutrition: the Mediterranean diet can reduce the symptoms of the disease"

The study conducted by Créteil's Hôpital Mondor has shown how the Mediterranean diet can positively influence the severity of psoriasis.

Psoriasis is a non-contagious skin disease, chronic and recurrent, the causes of which remain partly mysterious. Many factors seem to be involved in its etiopathogenesis: genetic predisposition, immune system (in particular some interleukins), presence of inflammatory and / or autoimmune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease, Chron's disease, etc.), diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, but even stress and poor nutrition play a key role. Generally an anti-inflammatory diet is indicated to assist in the treatment of psoriasis, but according to French scientists from the Hôpital Mondor of Créteil, the Mediterranean diet would be the most effective in reducing symptoms and progressing the disease.
