Re: Question about psoriasis
My son had psoriasis from the time he was 12 (he is now 29). He had tried all of the doctor and some natural remedies that were recommended. His psoriasis was so bad (how bad was it?!) that it was an embarrassment for him to go out in public.
Last year we discovered a product made by the Mannatech Company (I do not work for or represent this company) called Ambrotose. It is supposed to help with the immune system.
Within three weeks of taking the Ambrotose in the "bulk" form (one quarter teaspoon a day) the psoriasis in his scalp was completely gone and there was absolutely no scarring in his scalp.
Within 4 to five weeks all of the ugly "oozing" sores that covered his body were dried up and a white-ish powdery scale covered the sores. Within a month and a half, he had absolutely no sign of psoriasis.
The product sells for something like 58 dollars for a jar of the powder, but it lasts up to 3 months. As long as he was on the Ambrotose the psoriasis was gone. He has been off of it for about 7 months now, the psoriasis has come back, but is no where near what it was before Ambrotose. The only reason he came off the product was due to its cost (seminary student - no income).
I believe that, if he had stayed on the Ambrotose for at least six months to a year, his psoriasis would either have been completely gone...or nearly completely gone. Because of this I have told him that I will pay for the stuff if he will continue to use it.
I can not say anything about other claims that Mannatech makes, but I do know that it works for psoriasis.
