Worked Temporarily

Not sure this will help anyone .. but here goes .. I have had psoriasis for quite a while .. first time for about four years and then gone for four year and this time for two .. they say that it is brought on by stress .. maybe so .. but I think if you have other issues .. and I think my grandfather had it and my son has had it .. but his I think has been exasperated by drinking .. the first time I changed my diet and added good oils to my diet and did a cleanse .. I also used prayer for my terrible itching. I found that the shots and cortisone helped only for a while .. including the shots .. it only masked the real issue .. I think it has to do with leaky gut and food allergies .. keto helps a lot but not completely.. lecithin has helped in the past might try again I'm also going to try doing more magnesium and zinc.

For me Apple cider vinegar and coconut oil only help for a little bit. Cracking and burning and itching drive me nuts and nothing seems to really help for any length of time. can go four weeks with splitting hands and peeling. I can't use my hands to having four days of nice hands. I think the things I am going to try to do another cleanse and try to work on my liver and go back on keto and possibly work on my kidneys cause I've always had issues with my kidneys. Apple cider vinegar has the yeast from the mother and baking soda helps. So I'll probably start bathing with baking soda and finishing with vinegar and then doing the olive oil again which seemed to help. The other thing that helps a lot are cold showers.. maybe that will help people I don't know everybody's different..

Hi Dave,

Just read your comment and want to thank you for being so generous with your thoughts, which seem very sound to me. I do not have psoriasis, but my skin is unhealthy and I have had chronic lyme deep in my body and brain, and also have researched that chonic lyme is because of EBV- so the viral connection as well. Thanks again.

Hello Gail,

I have been wondering how you have been getting on with the Psoriasis issue?

Here are some oils that you could consider incorporating into your diet in small quantities or utilizing in a salve.

My two favourites at the moment are Hemp Seed Oil and Coconut Oil.

Most people are aware of the many virtues of Coconut Oil and it can also be used as a carrier oil for other products for treating the skin. It is soothing for skin conditions. I find the smell very pleasant. I sometimes use it for "Oil Pulling" (see this Site for more info. on that). Use extra- virgin cold-pressed etc. You probably know the drill.

A bottle of Hemp Seed Oil or Flax Oil is usually on the dinner table and we take a drizzle of it with our meal whenever we remember, having faith that it will deliver Linolenic acid and the Omegas 3 and 6, as well as some fatty acids, reputedly able to support suppleness of hair and skin.

Whilst not aspiring to win any beauty contest, the skin tends to dry out a bit as we age and our climate can be harsh on the skin, especially as we tend to spend a lot of time outdoors. It has been claimed that HSO is an effective salve for treating conditions such as Psoriasis, Eczema, and Acne.

Avocado Oil Can be used as a moisturizer and can repair / heal skin. It has five Vitamins, as well as Omega 3 potassium and folate.

Almond Oil protects and nourishes skin, has fatty acids, Vitamins E and K, as well as antioxidants.

Zinc is required for more tasks in the body than any other substance (and I thought it was Magnesium! ) and yet is quite deficient in NZ soils. That's the bad news but the good news is that women need less Zinc than men! Someone I know resolved a long-standing, red nose issue in reasonably short order with a tiny application of topical Zinc (and Castor Oil) ointment to the affected area on a regular basis. There is a test for this - talk to the pharmacist near you.

Another, often overlooked trace mineral, is Selenium, which is also lacking in NZ soils (most Americans get enough from their diet apparently). This one is also necessary for Psoriasis control and skin elasticity. Applying Selenium products to the skin can fix psoriasis and dandruff of the scalp. Low Selenium can be a factor in some cancers and in Arthritis suffering.

The skin, being our largest organ, really ought to have more attention paid to it. It is a bit like your car: we don't attend to its maintenance very well until something goes wrong!!

Gail- let us know how you are progressing please - it may assist others too!

Cheers from somewhere Down Under.

Oregano Oil, Alkalizing +
Posted by Sabita (Florida ) on 04/18/2022

I had very good results to tame psoriasis itch by mixing about 4 tbsp olive oil, 2 capsules of Oil of Oregano (Natural Factors brand with 80 percent Carvacol) and 3 drops of DMSO. The itch went away and for the rest of the day, I kept my skin moisturized with olive oil. My psoriasis is slowly going away. I did use some left over antifungal creams I had from my last bout of psoriasis which helped a lot.

I am also drink baking soda in water or lemon water after meals to combat acidity. After drinking these for a few days I noticed that the swelling above my right knee went away after being swollen for over a year. I started doing this after a source stated that arthritis is caused by acidity.

I am also taking Bill Thompson's Special Alkalizing Combo No. 1 in the morning and evening. You can do a search for this on this site. This Combo helps with fighting candida as well.

Thank you to everyone who responded to my request for simple meal ideas. I will certainly try what has been suggested. Also thank you for this site and all its contributors over the years. I have used many remedies for myself and my family with great results.

With all that going on in this world, I believe we need to start stocking up on our remedies, meds and also on food, etc.

Stay safe and be blessed!

Curel Fragrance Free Lotion
Posted by John (South Carolina) on 04/10/2022
5 out of 5 stars


My name is John.

Psoriasis appeared on my elbows, knees, wrists, ankles and on my face after a very serious automobile accident in 1979. I was very embarrassed by the patches of either very dry or red skin.

I started using a prescription from a dermatologist but I stopped because the patches appeared to be a much deeper red.

After many years of experimenting with over the counter products and some also from dermatologists, I saw a commercial on tv for Curel fragrance free lotion.

The commercial didn't speak about psoriasis. It was only focused on dry skin.

I remember a few years before reading a magazine article about psoriasis. It said it's always best to use products that are simple and more natural.

Once again I am thinking "What have I got to lose"?

I started using Curel Fragrance Free Lotion during the Winter of 2009

I would apply this lotion to all areas that have psoriasis patches before I left my home each morning and before I went to bed each night .

Please understand! I had either deep red patches of crusty patches of skin.

It did take me a week or two to control everything but I did.

I haven't thought about looking for anything more to control my psoriasis because I believe my skin looks good and there has never been any side effects since I started using Curel Fragrance Free Lotion twice each day.

You might want to test multiple fragrance free lotions to see which one works the very best for you!

I sincerely hope this will help many people!

God bless you all!


Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Teresa (CO) on 04/10/2022

hi, just wanted to say, I have read and do believe Psoriasis/Ezcema is from a too Acidic Body, same as Yeast issues. I have some spots but keep them at bay, thru cream. I used to drink AV daily in a glass of water, now have been drinking about 1/4 tsp of Baking Soda and it seems to help. One thing I drink Wine and that doesn't help me at all. Maybe I will go back to drinking the V although Soda is less expensive. Thank you everyone for your notes.

Posted by Wendy (London) on 04/06/2022

We only applied it once although it was a good soaking.

He too has had patches crop up elsewhere over the years which he just used to apply cream of all different types to try to keep it at bay, but this was worst so we decided to try ACV. After the initial treatment it was just left, no creams and thankfully all healed.

I wish you luck too.

Hi Wendy,

That is an awesome result! Was it just one application of ACV one time?

I have had psoriasis that looked just like that, but when I did, it wasn't just in one place like that, it was in many. If I ever get another one like that, I will test your remedy! Thank you for posting it!

My husband's on-off skin condition has never been actually diagnosed. He has been given cream which never worked. I am assuming it is psoriasis but can't be sure. Anyway, this patch wouldn't clear up it itched and was getting worse. I soaked cotton wool in raw apple cider vinegar and he kept it on for a day. This is the result a few weeks later.

Hello Gail,

Yes, Hope's Relief shampoo is a wonder that I wrote about on this Site a while ago now: I am glad that you are having success with it. The dreaded itchy scalp is held at bay with Hope's.

The conditioner they put out offers additional protection but I get by without it.

I don't need to shampoo as often either.

Unfortunately, it does not seem to readily lather in our water, does it lather in yours OK?

I still use it though, as it trumps all others I have tried - natural too, which is a plus.

I also use a 50/50 spray of ACV and H2O and leave on to soak for a while after the shampooing.

Malcolm Harker Herbals stock a skin, itch remover (again an NZ product) which is effective.

Yes, Hope's Relief is the only shampoo that works for me. They also have a skin cream which is the only thing that has worked for my skin itch, flaking etc.. The Hope's Relief line was developed by New Zealand Naturopaths and is now sold out of Australia lol

Please look up on herbal and follow the Natural Procedures for Systemic Yeast Overgrowth and Leaky Gut Syndrome. For Intestinal Sweep I used Oil of Oregano with Carvacol (80%) Properties. You can pretty well substitute other brands for products listed. Just compare ingredients. The Lower Bowel Formula is a bowel cleanse. After I finished the procedures, I stayed on high doses of Oil of Oregano spread throughout the day. (I took 2 capsules every one to two hours while I was up) I am also using it on the scalp. Also find other candida cleanse products to alternate with the Oil of Oregano after 3 weeks. Then get back on it. It took away the itch and my skin is clearing. During the procedures I only ate Vegetables, nuts and seeds as recommended. Tough bit necessary. No sugar! I have struggled with skin issues mainly due to allergies and eating sugars. Learned my lesson and eating better now.

maybe an infection?

well I been dealing with psorasis for almost 10 ten years now. and its driving me crazy. so I think im having a throat, ears, and stomach problem. an infection I guess. a few months back I bought pepcid complete tablets and prilosec for heartburn(1 tablet a day) and after a few days I noticed the psorasis slowed down. kind of weird. so I did another colon cleanse and it looks like its slowly clearing again. but I'm still dealing with itchy throat and ears. ordered some stuff to deal with that. we'll see what happens.

Avoid Nickle-Containing Foods

Update: soy seems to be the trigger for the psoriasis or rash. I applied ACV with paper towels and instant relief! Also, I used Sarna itch cream and O'Keefe's at the base of my scalp to “break up” the rash. It is clearing up. I also took baths with coconut oil and one day did an ACV bath. Stinky, but effective! Thanks, Earth Clinic! Check ingredients at your local restaurants for allergens such as soy and caramel coloring (causes cancer).

High-Dose Vitamin C, Zinc and Vitamin D

I got rid of my psoriasis with vitamin D, zinc, and high doses of oral vitamin C!

I've had psoriasis since I was in middle school. I don't take medication, I don't drink and I eat pretty healthy so it's pretty well controlled. Occasionally I will still get a spot that pops up here and there.

Recently I was looking for a good vitamin C product to take in conjunction with my Vitamin D and zinc just for immune support. I happened across an article called The High Dose Oral Vitamin C Protocol for Cancer and Viral Infections on a site called Chris Beat Cancer. I read the article and figured if this guy beat cancer by taking high doses of vitamin C, surely it would work to strengthen my immune system.

I ordered 2 pounds of non GMO water soluble vitamin c in a fine powder form on Amazon. After about a month of following the protocol laid out on the Chris Beat Cancer site, my psoriasis is gone! What a pleasant surprise!

Beware of this advice if you have a nickel allergy. Look up foods containing nickel. Beans and nuts are high in nickel.

I recently developed a psoriasis condition. The dermatologist said it was the citrus shampoo I was using that caused it. I've used the same shampoo for many years. I started thinking about a nickel allergy I have and looked up nickel-containing foods. BINGO! Nickel is in coffee, canned goods and beans, for example. I switched shampoos just to be safe. I purchased one on Amazon called Honey skin. It worked like a charm. The inflammation is very low now.

Molybdenum is particularly useful for reducing the symptoms of Candida overgrowth and for avoiding Candida Die-off. It helps to process and expel toxins like acetaldehyde that are produced by Candida albicans as a byproduct of its metabolism. Molybdenum has other health benefits too.

Molybdenum: An Essential Trace Mineral » The Candida Diet allows candida colonization in a couple of ways. 1.

In a normal person, cortisol also balances this by triggering conversion of glucose to glycogen when glucose is in excess.

I've had Psoriasis for over two years compounded by other health stuff. Itching really bad and noticed like others that eating sugar made it worse at night. So started cutting the sugar- and then began dipping my foot in urine (an old skin repair/ healing remedy) and then ACV topically or coconut oil, my foot has gone back to normal not a belt of thick angry skin...I'm realising I need to clear candida and do probiotics to sort my other health problems out but it's great to have results on one level. I really appreciate this website and the community.

Psoriatic patches on face and thigh

My daughter had (HAD) psoriatic red patches on her face, thigh, and arm. We tried many methods and of course, the DR did nothing. We did not want to introduce antibiotics only topical. We tried Retin-A and everything else in between. What finally took care of it was one or a combination of the following...

  • MG-217 psoriasis(coal tar) multisymptom ointment over the counter at your local Walgreens or CVS,
  • Hyaluronic acid beauty cream from Vitamin world,
  • NOW brand tea tree oil,
  • Uncle Harry's spearmint toothpaste.

What really I believed helped after using the previous for about 1 to 2 weeks alternating was putting Elmer's glue on at night time which starves the area from oxygen. Also, Dog licks can help which my daughter said the dog liked to lick her arm.

Eucerin lotion if it gets too dry or itchy. Use sparingly so it can heal. Any q's please ask. Good vibes.

It's also because she stopped eating sugar, guys. That's a key component she did, which you're probably not doing. As it is a fungus you're dealing with.

I read about Borax years ago and recently came across "Forbidden Health" by German biophysicist, Andreas Kalcker where I read about many wonderful forgotten therapies including Borax. It mentioned many of the things mentioned in this video. Here's mind blowing my testimonial: I have been suffering from psoriasis gone wild on my left inner ankle which I scratched into an infection that spread to my whole foot.

The burning itch was unbearable and my foot was swollen to the point it couldn't fit in my soft slip-on sandal plus it weeped plasma continually, so I had to wrap it. I went to a NATUREPATH CLINIC and got VIT C and H202 IV (Hydrogen peroxide) several days plus $300 worth of supplements for a detox cleanse.

Nothing worked my foot was still swollen and itchy 😕...then upon waking, I started getting shooting pain and couldn't stand or walk for several minutes till veins expanded to receive blood flow. That night my foot tingled, I panicked, I read folks lost limbs when circulation is cut off to a limb. In middle of the night I got up and took tummeric and an aspirn. They helped with swelling and itching but in the morning I spit out blood from gums and I had blood blisters plus a large bruise on my arm.

What the heck‼️😟 Then I remembered that tummeric and aspirin are blood thinners and some of the supplements I was taking from the Natural clinic had curcumin in it which is also in tummeric so I had to stop the tummeric and aspirin.

I was out of options so the next morning I went running to Urgent Care and was given an antibiotic and a dreaded steroid (the reason I went to a natural clinic in the first place, to avoid steroids).

Well, the conventional doctor (a girl my daughter's age) assured me it was a low dossage for only 5 days to reduce swelling and prevent circulation issues), so, l I took the antibiotics and steroids as prescribed 😒 and my foot was almost back to normal ☺️.

But after the meds ran out, my foot swoll up again and the burning itching returned. 😟 Now what?

Was I going to become dependent on antibiotics and steroids?! I had previously joined a natural health chat line on WhatsApp where someone posted the PDF of the book, "FORBIDDEN HEALTH" that's when I read Borax is a one of the many minerals in SEA WATER💧and how it use to be a natural occurring mineral found in rich soil where apples and other produce would have as much as 20mg and diseases caused by high acidity like arthritis, psoriasis, diabetes, etc., where RARE.

I was unsure of the amount I should take, (now I'll take the amount recommended here) so, I took an aspirin size pinch of Borax with a glass of water and within an hour the burning itching stopped and my foot seemed less bloated and dry.

I repeated it later in day when I felt the itching come back. The next day my foot was 2 sizes smaller 😲.

I took it twice again, and I was blown away! Within 2 days the Borax had reduced the inflammation, stopped the unbearable burning itching, and stopped the weeping. Now, 4 days later my foot is the same size as my healthy foot, and no longer weeping 😀's still healing of course.

Per labs at the clinic my thyroid is out of wack and I have candida. So, I will continue taking Borax as recommended here to clean my gut and continue healing my foot now normal in size except for a bit of red patches still in healing process, I'm delighted ❣️🤗

I was recently working on a client (I'm an LMT), and she mentioned that she had psoriasis, but that it had entirely cleared up, except for a small spot on her back. She said that she had it everywhere. The specific places she mentioned were: stomach, arms, legs, inside her ears, back.

The most severely affected area was her back--she was even waking up with blood on her sheets. She tried different prescription ointments (including a $1000.00 spray!), none of which were very effective. After doing some research, she decided to try CBD oil. Her dose was 1 drop sublingually (under the tongue) in the morning. On day 2, her psoriasis was clearing up.

When I saw her, it had been 2 weeks since she started taking it, and the psoriasis had completely cleared up, except for that dime size spot on her back. She even forgot to take the CBD oil one day. I didn't think to ask her what type of psoriasis she had, but the remedy that worked for her --1 drop CBD oil under the tongue in the morning.

I had good results with this supplement taking it multiple times per day.

I also took some capsules and emptied two capsules into one ounce of body lotion and mixed it and applied this mixed lotion directly to any plaques.
