I am a thirty year old male who has had psoriasis since I was six. Every summer I use ointment and sunlight to clear my skin from head to toe. Only to have it return in the fall and worsen throughout the winter. I recently visited a certified practitioner at my local natural health store who told me something very interesting. She ran a Limbic Stress Analysis on me (which is basicaly a new technology that asks your body questions in order to find out what your body does not agree with) and then reading from her computer screen she told me my body does not agree with dairy products and that it causes me skin inflamation. I then told her about my psoriasis. She recomended me a few products from the natural health store and also to cut way back on my dairy intake of course. This lady knew nothing about me. I was quite suprised. I will report back to this site in a few months to update. Hope it works...

[YEA] I had been wheat-free for 7 months and my gas, acid-reflux and psoriasis went away. When you are on a wheat-free diet, it can cause other problems like constipation if you do not watch your fiber intake. I am now off the wheat-free diet and all has returned. I will be going back on the wheat-free diet ASAP.
[Eczema is listed on your emu oil page, but not psoraisis.]
I am a 54 year old female whose body erupted with a case of psoraisis upon moving from a Southern climate to a less Southern climate. (There is a history of psoriasis in the males in my family, but I had never had it before.)
I saw a doctor when my case quickly went from peeling "plaques" on my scalp, to my legs, back and stomach. The doctor gave me a mild steroid ointment and then progressed to much stronger steroid ointments and creams. I used the $600. Prescription shampoo and also a messy scalp oil. None of these things worked very well, if at all.
I trolled the psoriasis Web sites for alternative remedies and bemoaned getting the heartbreak of psoraisis after 54 years.
I tried tanning salons, an oil from India and glycerin. I also began taking vitamin D3 lozenges more regularly. None of these things worked.
THEN, purely by accident, I put some cracked heel foot softener on a bad patch on my thigh. I had purchased the foot softener at Walmart, 2 oz. For under $4. The softener contained emu oil and beeswax. The very next day, I noticed more improvement from this treatment than from any of the other things I had been using. I thought it was a fluke, so I continued to treat just that one spot more than once a day. WOW! That patch went away.
So I went back to the psoriasis cure Web sites and searched for emu oil. There it was, listed as a cure... For some, not all people. I also read a few medical study abstracts concerning the fact that emu oil absorbs through the skin very quickly.
I used up the 2 oz. of foot softener and cured all the patches on my body that I could reach. I also found a more expensive cream at the drugstore that was not yellow and greasy like the foot softener and contained a higher percentage of emu oil. Both of these cured all of my patches except for some hard to treat bumps left on my scalp. I never ended up buying 100% emu oil as the two weaker preparations worked for me. I continue to use both of them on any dry or suspicious-looking skin, and my heels!

[YEA] Fasting will CURE psoriasis. It's hard to do tho. I was hospitalized for 3 months as a child due to my psoriasis, I have done PUVA, injections, and tons of horrible meds. Then I tried fasting. Cured it. There is a book on fasting called the miracle of fasting. GET IT.

[YEA] It started as mild scalp psoriasis when I was 17. By the time I turned 21 it turned into an aggressive red itchy scaly patch on the back of my head above my neck. I blamed it on hair dye. Then I finally gave up and got a prescription steroid cream, after a week of use, my psoriasis disappeared. In the case I would get a slight itch, I would dab on the cream and it went away.
I was psoriasis free for years until I hit 33. This time it started out as small dot on my hip. When one spot would subside after using prescription steroid cream, another one would appear somewhere else. It would eventually show up on my groin and the crease of my leg and hip. Stress would cause flare-ups, along with spicy foods, and sugar. Sugar was a guaranteed trigger. I decided to take the natural route. I tried taking many products including vitamin D oil, primrose oil, coconut oil, flax oil, apple cider vinegar, chia seeds, kefir, and curcumin. Externally, I tried sweet almond oil, and oil of oregano (heavily diluted w/ a carrier oil), I don't recommend oregano oil as it is very powerful and can cause serious burns. All these items seemed to work for me somewhat, but didn't relieve the symptoms entirely.
In my searches for natural cures on the web, time and again I would see the words Leaky Gut and Inflammation relating to psoriasis. As a last ditch effort I resorted to going on a leaky gut healing regimen. I took out the bag of flaxseed meal, I had used for baking, that I kept in the refrigerator. I mixed 2 Tb with water and had it first thing in the morning. If you let it sit, it will become thick much like Metamucil. I had no flare ups that day and slept like a baby all night. I've been taking this every morning for the last 5 weeks. As a bonus side effect, it curbed my appetite and kept me full. I'm confident to say that it works for my psoriasis. Really, truly works.
Flaxseed meal had been known to help with Insulin Resistance, Diabetes, Weight Loss, and lowering LDL Cholesterol. Psoriasis has been linked to insulin resistance, cholesterol, and obesity. I find this interesting as diabetes type 2 and psoriasis runs in my family.
Aside from flaxseed meal, I am also drinking Slippery Elm tea. I found the Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat w/ slippery elm and licorice tea at my local super Target and decided to give it a try. Slippery elm is a folk remedy used for upset stomach. I don't mind the taste at all, but I should warn that it has a mild laxative effect.
Lastly, to help heal my gut, I don't eat after 7pm. If I get hungry, I drink water or have tea with almond milk. It was hard for me for the first couple weeks, but I stuck to it because the benefits definitely outweigh the costs.
So do just these 3 steps:
- Drink flaxseed meal and water in the morning
- Avoid Fried foods, Spicy foods, and Sugar
- Don't eat after 7pm, drink water instead
I am so glad I can share my experience with you all. The efforts I made were so simple and easy to do. Please give it a try, you really have nothing to lose. I hope that this could be the answer to other people out there like myself who want to treat this ailment using a natural remedy.Replied by Angelina
