Beet and Carrot Salad with Ginger

This recipe pairs beets with carrots to create an excellent natural remedy for psoriasis. Beets are loaded with folate, with one cup of chopped beets providing more than a third of the daily value for this important micronutrient. Folate is important to people with psoriasis because a high proportion of psoriasis patients (44% according to one study) have reduced serum levels of folate. The folate deficiency frequently observed in psoriasis patients may be a result of increased utilization of this important mineral by the abnormally rapidly regenerating skin cells. The carrots in this salad provide plenty of beta-carotene and vitamin C.

Anti-Inflammatory Salmon Salad

Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which have anti-inflammatory effects. Salmon also contains astaxanthin, a carotenoid that gives salmon its pink color and that can act as a potent antioxidant. The psoriasis-alleviating properties of this salad are further strengthened by red onions and capers, both of which are among the best dietary sources of quercetin. Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that helps fight inflammation by inhibiting the action of phospholipase, an enzyme that generates free arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid increases the levels of prostaglandins and leukotrienes which are potent mediators of inflammation.
