Psoriasis Treatment In Pregnancy And Breastfeeding
Is it safe to use natural psoriasis treatments during the pregnancy or breastfeeding time. In my opinion it is better to avoid this option.
Psoriasis In Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
First thing is that the body although affected with illness (psoriasis) is working in some way and trying to do the best it can. The whole body is used to it and some supplements can has very strong modulation impact on various processes in the body and it is not needed during the pregnancy or breastfeeding.
If you would start to use some new supplements or diet during that time it can start off detox reaction which is acceptable normally however not good during pregnancy or breastfeeding time.
Actually many people experience the detox reactions and therefore the best option is to use just vitamins and minerals if needed during the pregnancy. I would not recommend any supplements like strong probiotics, heavy metal detoxification formulas (EDTA, cilantro, DMSA), high doses of enzymes, Betaine HCL, any detoxification formulas, liver tonics or herbs which can have strong impact on the body.
Also the therapeutic doses of vitamins are generally not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
