2018 is the year to begin healing Psoriasis naturally. If you have Psoriasis and you want to try to heal naturally then here is so information on how you may be able to heal Psoriasis using some natural remedies.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition that manifests on the skin but seems to have its source in the digestive system. There is no cure for Psoriasis and for most people the outbreaks on the skin continue for life. This leaves many depressed and anxious every day of life. It’s a catch 22 because the more Psoriasis spreads the more it causes stress and stress makes Psoriasis worst. The normal treatment route involves taking medications to steroid creams. But now, thousands seek a natural solution. As more and more information come out about the side effects of medications and the horrible flare ups and withdrawal period with steroids, many seek to heal Psoriasis naturally.
Up til about five years ago, the ability to clear the skin, seemed impossible. Many theories were investigated but never gained the support of the medical community though now thousands of people are clearing Psoriasis through the use dietary changes and natural supplements. Other alternative therapies include light treatment, steam baths and colon irrigation. Many of these natural healing methods, seem to help the detoxing of the body and stimulation of vit D. Many natural theories point to the fact that Psoriasis is believed to start in the digestive system with leaky gut. Dr. Axe, discusses leaky gut in his new book. Dr Pagano who wrote “Healing Psoriasis” discussed this in his book 20 years ago. The idea is that people with Psoriasis are pre-disposed to leaky gut- a condition where holes develop in the gut which then allow bacteria, chemicals form food, pollution and food particles to get through the holes into the blood system. Normally these would all be kept out, but now, circulating in the blood the immune system, mistakes them for foreign invaders. Since Psoriasis is linked to immune system triggered, it makes sense that the immune system attacking the body and leading to a series of reactions which then affect skin cells. Since we already know that much of our immune system and nervous system resides in the gut, depression, moodiness and fatigue, are all normal for people with Psoriasis because the body is constantly fighting. When a body is constantly fighting, its constantly under stress and this overloads the organs. When the body thinks there is something toxic circulating it will attempt to get rid of it through detox organs like liver and kidneys. So the body mistakes food particles, chemicals, pollution and bacteria for foreign invaders now, triggers and overworks the liver and kidneys. Once the primary detox organs are overworked the theory is the skin, which is the secondary detox organ must now take over. So in the case of Psoriasis it is the skin which is affected.
So, what does this means for people with Psoriasis. Generally there is no scientific evidence to support leaky gut, currently so naturally doctors must prescribe medications and steroids which suppress the symptoms. It is the only way to control the outbreaks. But, now, more evidence is emerging about the effects of all the medications, some, are correlated with cancer and just what are the long term effects of the medications. The National Psoriasis Foundation website, actually reports on the withdrawal period of steroids. Once you have taken steroids and you try to get off them, the skin flares up. This is a normal side effect of the steroid. So when you are contemplating getting off medications to attempt to heal Psoriasis naturally you must be prepared for the withdrawal period where the skin could get slightly worst before it gets better. This could last 1 to 4 weeks.
One of the best natural remedies is to drink 3 liters of water. Water is 60% of the body and it helps to flush the detox organs and aid in detoxification. The next step is to stick to eating mostly organic fruits and vegetables. This reduces the amount of toxicity entering the body from pesticides and chemicals and it helps to alkalize the body. Research shows that the more alkaline a body the less likely disease will form. Then there is natural sunlight or light therapy to stimulate vit D. Many people with Psoriasis have also found relief with supplements like cod liver oil, turmeric, probiotics, milk thistle and greens powders. One of the best supplements for supporting the skin and helping to heal Psoriasis naturally is Organifi. It is not enough to simply cut things out of the diet, we also want to support the healing process. Greens powder in a smoothie in the morning is a great way to start the day and goes a long way to getting nutrients into the body.
Considering the use of natural therapies should never take the place of consulting your doctor. Psoriasis is still a serious medical condition and requires being under the care of a qualified medical professional. But, if you are concerned about the side effects of medications and the costs then healing psoriasis naturally could provide a solution.
