Shailene Woodley Does It

The most recent outbreak of psoriasis had me combing back through the internet searching for some kind of magic bullet. 

The latest thing is this ancient, but currently trendy activity called oil pulling.  You swish coconut oil around in your mouth for, like, 10-20 minutes.  The theory is that the oil sticks to some harmful bacteria, and then when you spit out the oil, you also spit out the harmful bacteria.  And then your health problems are magically cured.  It has something to do with strep mutans.

I know.

As I was describing it to Dan, he was like, "Umm, hmm. Yeah. But you are still following actual medical advice, right?"

Yes, I'm still following actual medical advice.

Let's not forget the spa option. There are great spas around the world that specialize in psoriasis treatments. You should definitely hit the spa for a few days.
