If you are wondering what else you can do besides consulting your doctor about your psoriasis when everything else seems to fail, we are so glad you found us.
We understand your autoimmune condition and know how to relieve your psoriasis condition.
When you live with psoriasis, it can feel like a perpetual situation that causes you stress. Every decision is based around your psoriasis condition.
Through having to deal with itchy, tight, and painful skin patches that nothing seems to cure, the stress that is invoked is another trigger for psoriasis flares and pain.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition and chronic illness that isn’t contagious or infectious and is characterized by patches of silvery red, dry, and scaly skin. It can appear anywhere on the body. It can be accompanied by immobility (arthritis), burning pain, bleeding, itchiness, joint stiffness, depression, and anxiety.
As always, with many autoimmune diseases, you can go through periods where it is better and then periods where it feels worse (flare-ups). Medication that used to stop the symptoms may have stopped working.
You may also be dealing with the emotional symptoms due to the nature of the Psoriasis condition, as well as how it makes you feel physically.
As Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition, you may also be concerned about developing another autoimmune disease, which is often the case because the inflammation pathways are open.
Having Psoriasis can affect your life; what you wear, how you sleep, what to eat and drink, self-esteem, confidence, relationships, school, work – and so on.
How to Treat Psoriasis Naturally
What usually happens with skin cell renewal is that new skin cells are created in the deepest layer of the skin. As the new skin cells move up and reach the outermost level, they die off, which takes 3-4 weeks.
With psoriasis, an autoimmune condition, the process is speeded up due to the body protecting itself after detecting foreign pathogens. T cells that travel around the body fighting germs start attacking healthy skin cells by mistake when psoriasis is present. So, the deepest skin layers produce more T cells quickly, and the skin moves up to the outermost layer within seven days. As they die off, they have these red, cracked, and scaly patches.
Understanding the cause enables successful treatment of psoriasis.
Many factors, including genetics, skin injuries, Leaky gut syndrome, stress, environmental issues, alcohol, deficiencies, and medication, can cause psoriasis. The number one cause, which everything is linked to, is systemic inflammation.
So, psoriasis treatment should be aimed at lowering inflammation in the body. This cannot be done by medication alone. Many medications mask the symptoms but don’t fix the underlying cause.
We advise that you carry on consulting with your doctor and pursue an anti-inflammatory lifestyle to keep your inflammation down and symptoms at bay. Yes, it is possible. Read the testimonials about successful psoriasis reduction.
If your autoimmune disease is genetic, of course, you cannot do anything about that, but what is lovely to know is that you can learn to deactivate those gene expressions. If your lifestyle is inflammatory, you will activate your genes.
Inflammation and gut health are very closely linked, and 70% of immune cells sit in the gut, so improving gut flora will reduce inflammation and boost the immune system.
An anti-inflammatory lifestyle that encourages good, regular sleep is also essential.
Sleep deprivation is a common occurrence with many autoimmune conditions. Sleep deprivation activates the sympathetic nervous system, increases pro-inflammatory cytokine production, and can have severe immunological effects. So sleep promotion is imperative to healing your autoimmune condition.
