Re: psoriasis please help me !!!!!
I have had psoriasis for over 25 years - it's always been mild, thankfully - on my elbows (and ocasionally a spot on the back of my hand at the pinkie knuckle).
There are different reasons one may get psoriasis. Soemtimes, it's because a person is sensitive to wheat gluten. Actually, that's quite common - I would suggest eliminating wheat from your diet for a few weeks to see if that's the problem. Sometimes, that's all it takes.
Some say psoriasis can develop due to an overly acidic environment within the body, by eating too much meat, etc. If this is the case, a change in diet once again is in order. Apple cider vinegar supposedly can help with this.
It also can be liver-related. If the liver has difficulty in filtering toxins, the skin suffers.
Yet another reason may be Leaky Gut Syndrome. I have this. It's when the mucosal lining of your gut is porous and food particles are able to escape through the cracks and end up in your bloodstream. Your body attacks these food particles as if they're little foreign invaders and throws your immune system out of whack.
Mine flares up during life changes - new job, etc. I thank God it's always been mild, but I also have granuloma annulare, another lovely little skin issue, which is worse than my psoriasis but not horrible. I've had that for even longer.
I also have Candida issues, and that can contribute as well.
My suggestion to you is to take an IgG test to see what you may be allergic to. Hopefully, your body just may be acting out and rebelling against wheat or something else you're eating. In the meantime, there is a product called "MagiCream." Unfortunately it only comes in a teeny container, because you need to use it within 2 weeks of opening for best results, but when I use that stuff it completely clears my psoriasis. Works better than Clobestol (Clobetasol? I forget now) or any other prescription I have used, and is 100% natural and safe.
