Dahne Rodriguez had suffered from terrible itching for many years but could find nothing that would help. With her diagnosis of psoriasis, she had to drastically change her diet. Getting her diagnosis and finding treatment was a difficult and frustrating process, but she’s made it work. I’m so happy Dahne could join us to share her experience!

In this episode, we discuss psoriasis and how it relates to diet. Dahne shares her somewhat unconventional solutions to treating her condition. From apple cider vinegar in her hair to watching what she eats, her skin has improved drastically.

It’s so important to keep trying to solve the puzzle to your health. It can be frustrating but perseverance is so important. Dahne kept at it and is now doing so much better. The constant itching has stopped and she’s even wearing tank-tops again!

“It’s a hard struggle to go through, especially with the itchiness. My hands were constantly in my hair and on my shoulders and my back. I don’t want to live like this. It’s horrible. It’s very frustrating. But you have to try different things. Because we’re so individual, what works for me might not work for somebody else.” [12:16]

“For the first time since I was a teenager, I’m wearing tank-tops!” [13:56]
