I do not know about the combination, but I can tell you that MSM alone has been known to help psoriasis and eczema go away. But usually not that quickly.
: Can anyone shed some light on this phenomenon? I have a severe case of psoriasis (no arthritis at all), and the plaques covered 30%-50% of my body. I started injecting Enbrel twice a week, and after about 3 months, the bulk of my plaques disappeared, and new, normal skin resulted.
: Now after about 7 months, although I experienced a dramatic reduction in psoriasis plaque, my body still was covered with maybe 10%-15% plaque.
: A friend of mine gave me a large jar of MSM powder which he swore was a great supplement to his diet. He gave it to me merely as a "vitamin" to make me healthier. He had no idea I was on Enbrel, battling my psoriasis.
: NOW, after about a month of taking a heaping teaspoon of MSM powder in water everyday, and still injecting myself twice a week with Enbrel, the remaining 10%-15% of my psoriasis plaque disappeared!!!
: It took me awhile to put 2 and 2 together, and I THINK that perhaps the MSM might have made the Enbrel more effective.
: Anybody know of a correlation between Enbrel & MSM? Was this just a coincidence for me? Any good feedback?
