Is it safe to use Alfalfa with Psoriasis?

I found this link here

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/19.html#Dosage

after having been told about the wonders of Alfalfa but in that link it mentions:

“Auto-immune diseases” such as multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), or other conditions: Alfalfa might cause the immune system to become more active, and this could increase the symptoms of auto-immune diseases. There are two case reports of SLE patients experiencing disease flare after taking alfalfa seed products long-term. If you have an auto-immune condition, it’s best to avoid using alfalfa until more is known."

So I am guessing it would NOT be wise to use this product for Psoriasis?
