End Psoriasis Naturally

 

by Luella May

(The Best Years in Life) Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder that affects 80 million people around the world. It presents itself with round red dry patches on the skin that are often itchy and subject to cracking, blistering, and bleeding. Psoriasis can be a direct result of what is known as Leaky Gut Syndrome, a condition where the intestinal lining is damaged. Toxins and waste are then able to penetrate through the intestinal walls into the blood stream, and circulate throughout the body. The liver and kidneys become unable to effectively eliminate these poisons, and this results in the body attempting to remove them through the skin. This process triggers an autoimmune reaction which can lead to a number of problems, examples of which are abdominal bloating, excessive gas, cramps, fatigue, joint pain, neurological disorders, and skin conditions.

A damaged intestinal lining has several causes some of which are:

* Food sensitivity
* Chronic inflammation
* Stress
* Certain drugs such as NSAIDS, certain antibiotics, chemotherapy and radiation;
* Excessive alcohol consumption
* A compromised immune system.

A big contributor to Leaky Gut Syndrome is the Standard American Diet (SAD). SAD is ripe with unhealthy fats, processed foods, and toxins. It is low in fiber, complex carbohydrates, and plant-based foods. The SAD Diet will ultimately lead to digestive problems of one kind or another because a person simply cannot exist on this type of diet for decades without some type of damage occurring.

Another cause of Leaky Gut Syndrome is gluten sensitivity. Foods containing gluten irritate the digestive system in people who are gluten intolerant. This leads to numerous digestive problems, one of which is leaky gut syndrome. Therefore, the diet recommended for this and other digestive disorders is a gluten-free diet.

An autoimmune disorder occurs when the immune system is not able to distinguish between healthy body tissue and antigens. The result is that, in its confusion, it destroys healthy body tissue. It is important to point out that continuous triggers such as unhealthy foods or medicines can result in an autoimmune disorder. Mainstream medicine does not have a grasp on autoimmune disorders and, therefore, has no cure. It attempts to manage autoimmune disorders through the use of drugs such as corticosteroids and long-term antibiotics. Like most mainstream medicines, these drugs have side effects – some of which may result in compromising the immune system even further.

Nature has given us natural immune modulators that help to regulate the immune response. These immune modulators may be the key for controlling and beating autoimmune disorders without the side effects of prescribed and unnatural medications. The following are the best immune modulators that Mother Nature provides:

Oleander extract is a powerful immune modulator that has proven to be quite effective in treating autoimmune disorders. Please note that the oleander plant, itself, is extremely toxic and only a properly prepared extract should be used.

 

Probiotics have shown to have immunomodulation benefits, stimulating as well as suppressing immune responses.

Digestive enzymes are necessary for someone with Leaky Gut Syndrome in order to ensure proper nutrients are being absorbed. However, there is substantial evidence that digestive enzymes, especially protease, can help to control autoimmune responses.

Magnesium, a powerful immune modulator, plays a crucial role in approximately 300 of the body’s chemical processes. Furthermore, there is a strong link between autoimmune disorders and magnesium deficiency. It has been estimated that anywhere from 70% to 95% of us are deficient in magnesium.

Vitamin D3, which is essential for good health, is a powerful immune modulator. It has been found that individuals with autoimmune disorders are deficient in Vitamin D3. The sun is the best source of Vitamin D3. However, when getting adequate sunshine is not possible, supplementing with Vitamin D3 is an option.

Other effective immune modulators are curcumin and black seed oil (Nigella Sativa).

Detoxing the body regularly is important when addressing psoriasis. Coffee enemas are an excellent way of detoxing the body. Coffee enemas help the body to release toxins by opening the bile ducts.

The following are also very effective in detoxing the body:

* Coconut oil
* Beetroot juice
* Milk thistle
* Alpha lipoic acid

A good quality blood tonic will help to cleanse the blood and liver.

Physical activity is another effective way to cleanse the body. If exercise is not part of an individual’s daily routine, it is important not to over-exert the body. However, the goal of exercising when addressing psoriasis is to sweat. Sweating is one of the body’s way of expelling toxins.

 

Home remedies used to treat psoriasis:

A very therapeutic remedy used in treating psoriasis is bathing in sea salts. Fill the tub with hot water, making sure that it is not uncomfortably hot. Add at least 16 ounces of sea salt to the bath water and soak in the bath for at least 10 minutes. After the bath, remove loose scales and dead skin by gently rubbing the affected areas with a damp cloth, being careful not to break the underlying skin. Adding Epsom salts to the bath may make it even more effective and is a good way to provide the body with magnesium. Oatmeal and bentonite clay baths are also good remedies.

Commercial soaps play an important role in drying out the skin, thereby worsening the condition of psoriasis. A natural soap that moisturizes the skin is the best option. The ingredients should include colloidal silver, aloe, oatmeal and Shea or cocoa butter.

Colloidal silver applied topically and taken internally is also extremely effective in treating psoriasis.

Another excellent home remedy is applying castor oil to the affected area. After application, wrap the area in a plastic bag for several hours in order to keep the area moist.

The last effective remedy can be found in your kitchen cabinet. Mix raw apple cider vinegar, the juice of half a lemon, a quarter of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper, and a teaspoon of raw honey. Drink this mixture twice a day between meals. Reports say that this remedy will eliminate psoriasis symptoms in about a month.
