Understanding Psoriasis

PsoriasisPsoriasis is a completely different kind of skin condition from eczema or dermatitis. It is a chronic, recurring inflammatory skin disease characterized by red patches, dry, scaly skin with distinct border between the patch and normal skin. Pain and itching usually accompany this condition.

Psoriasis is a diverse form of skin disease that may appear in a variety of forms, each with their distinct characteristics. In some sufferers, it can change from one form to another.
Diet/Lifestyle Suggestions

We now know that excessive toxins in our blood stream that cannot be properly filtered by a poor liver and kidney, will try to escape through the skin, causing skin disorder and disruptions like psoriasis.

Skin ailments are warning signs that the body is not getting rid of toxins as it should. Psoriasis is said to be a life-long disease, but I believe that a total change in your dietary and lifestyle may make it short-lived.

Limit the consumption of sugar, animal products, i.e. fats and dairy products as they contain a certain arachidonic acid found only in animal tissues that are especially toxic for chronic psoriasis sufferers.

Also eliminate tobacco and alcohol entirely as they can increase the absorption of toxins from the gut that stimulates psoriasis.

Cut down on omega-6 type vegetable oils, such as corn, sunflower and safflower oils and margarines and shortenings made from these products. Avoiding sources of gluten, such as wheat can also help in reducing the problem.

Learn to love the rich benefits of plant produce that are “orangest” and “greenest”. A diet that is high in fiber, and high in mineral diet with lots of vegetable protein can help flush out the toxins. The orange and green juices are especially beneficial in these circumstances.

Drink lots and lots of water that will help the cleansing process. I will post some recipes.
