I have had Psoriasis since I was 8-9 years old. I am 28 now. My mom read in a Vitamin D book about using Vitamin D3 Gelcaps, prick them open and spread the oil onto the Psoriasis.

Well, I tried it. This is my 5th dose or so, and it has really taken the Psoriasis down, there are patches of more normal looking skin inside the Psoriasis! IT took away almost all the scales so its almost smooth skin now. It used to be bleeding, scaling, and really gross.

I used Vitamin D3 gelcap 2000 IU once daily!!

This could help tons of people and be an alternative to Steriod Creams!

I wonder if topical D-3 would help with acne? Has anyone tried this?

Hello to the earth clinic community, I am a 48 year young woman who has been suffering for psoriasis for about 9 years, I had try many and when I say many I'm talking about almost every treatment I could put my hands on it with no results.

About a week ago my sister gifted me a pound of organic Turmeric, after reading a lot about their benefits, it was meant for making the golden milk, which seems to be good for lots of ailments, but as busy as I am I never took the time to make the milk, so I start drinking it as tea. Two cups of boiling water for 1/2 spoon of Tumeric every day twice a day.( it last for the two servings)

Its been a week since I started and I can tell everybody here with the happiest smile in my face that my skin is 80% clear, the flares had stop and the ones I had kind of froze and are residing.

All I can say now is that it seems to be working for me, I haven't seen my skin, as white and clear for so long, and now I can't wait to see how is going to look in the next couple of weeks, ( I might be able to wear a bathing suit again...:)

Any way, I had the recipe out of YouTube, and from my heart I hope this help a lot of you who are in the same situation.

Full of love and hope!!

If someone has posted this, I have missed it. It is the cheapest topical cure you will find. I first heard about urine therapy years ago and you will find that if you GOOGLE it (that is, after you stop laughing at this post...), you will find that it is legitimate in eliminating psoriasis on your skin, scalp, etc.. The very first story I read was a man that had genital psoriasis. He thought for sure this was a JOKE. But in the privacy of his morning constitutional, he caught some of his morning urine and simply applied it topically. Within the week, it was about 90% eliminated. It works fast and effectively. This is not to infer that you don't need to clean up your gut, because you do....but whilst you do that, you skin can be clear.

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.

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

www.thecandidadiet.com/molybdenum/Cortisol allows candida colonization in a couple of ways. 1. Cortisol increases blood sugar: Cortisol stimulates gluconeogenesis – production of sugar. In a normal person, cortisol also balances this by triggering conversion of glucose to glycogen when glucose is in excess.

vinegar and olive oil Ailment: psoriasis

When I was in elementary school, I had psoriasis on my elbows and knees, and all over the side of my face! It got behind my ears so bad I used to dream that my ears were falling off.

None of the doctor's remedies helped. Then my parents found this old home-remedy book from around the 1700s. It had what I call the salad dressing cure.

You soak the affected skin with vinegar for a few minutes, then you cover it with warmed olive oil (make sure it isn't too hot).

It got so I hated vinegar for years because of the smell (I think Apple Cider Vinegar would have been much more bearable), but it worked! The psoriasis went completely away, and I no longer felt like a freak at school.

Every few years I'll get a tiny patch on my knee or elbow. If it bothers me I'll use the treatment and it will go away.

After trying many other treatments for psoriasis my doctor prescribed 'Soriataine" (a vitamin A derivative). It cleared up in about 2 months and never returned, even 20 years later.

For Psoriasis and Associated Arthritis:

Apply topically, directly onto plaque, Tamanu oil or (Rosehip oil+Glyercin+E+RosemaryEO) or helps a lot!

Stronger treatment is to again, apply directly onto plaque, liquid micellized Vitamin A, 5000 IU in the form of "retinyl palmitate" or "vitamin A palmitate". On Amazon.com you could buy vitamin A palmitate, micellized. You might be able to find it at a health food store as well. Put a few drops directly on a small scaly spot at night and again in the morning to see if it helps. If it helps, try expanding to a bigger area.

For the arthritis and toe pain, I find avoiding ALL nightshade plants solves the problem! You'll find a lot of information about this online. Absolutely nothing with tomatoes, white potatoes, eggplant, and all peppers except black pepper. This means no paprika, no chili powder, no jalapenos, etc. Mayonnaise has paprika in it! Most processed foods have some, however slight, red or green pepper in them. I switched from tomato based sauces to Italian dressings and I mix plain yogurt with garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, salt and black pepper for a Mexican flavor.

I also don't eat any preservatives or anything artificial. Yep, I pretty much make all my own seasonings, sauces, dressings, desserts. I also try to stay alkaline. 1-2 Alfalfa capsules helps alkalize after too much grain/meat. Also, I got colitis (bleeding colon) from the Clindamycin antibiotic that didn't cure my urinary tract infection it was suppose to cure (but that's another story). I stopped eating gluten to help my colon heal and now I just continue to not eat gluten. Gluten may increase your arthritis symptoms - you'd have to eliminate it from your diet and test that out for yourself.

The disease is mystifying doctors. They think it has to do with the immune system overreacting. Getting rid of the food triggers can help immensely! There is a whole class of "anti-nutrient" foods. If you find what I am suggesting helps tame your symptoms, you may want to go even further and google "anti-nutrients".

I had psoriasis of the scalp and tried for years to get rid of it. Nothing would work, one day I was on the net looking for ways to stop my eye sight from getting worse, this site recommended that vitamin B2 would stop cataracts from forming, I have a small cataract in each eye, so I thought I would give the vitamin B 2 ago, within a week of taking it I noticed that my scalp was being cleared of psoriasis, it's been 3 months now and there is no sign of it, vitamin B2 may help you, one tablet a day is all I take, it's a pretty cheap way to find out. like I said I took it for cataracts but it did another job.

In reply to Col (Qld Australia),

I am glad that you were able to find something that worked very well for your psoriasis! That is sometimes not an easy thing to do. Do you mind saying what dose you used and what grade your psoriasis is or was, such as moderate, mild or severe?

Based on some old studies from the 1950's and one newer study that is currently recruiting, I tried vitamin B2, which is also known as riboflavin. I started out at 400 mg per day based on the proposed dose for the newer study that is currently recruiting. I took that dose for 4 weeks and when I didn't see any improvement, I increased the dose to 800 mg per day in two divided doses of 400 mg each.......one in the morning and one in the afternoon. After another 8 weeks, I still saw no improvement. The main things that I noticed is that it turns your urine an irridescent yellow/green color which is darker than normal and it also made my urine smell.

Judging by my lack of response, I would say that vitamin B2 / riboflavin will not work for all cases of psoriasis, but given the good safety profile of riboflavin, it certainly seems worth a try. Here is a link to the study that is currently recruiting:

https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02622386

Here is a link to a study from 1952 that had mixed results using injections of B2:

The other studies from the 1950's are listed, but not available.

My husband had severe psoriasis-covering almost his entire body-he had two different kinds and was so ill at one point he could not work and eventually was on crutches due to cellulitis forming on his foot. He suffered from boils at the same time and only got worse with time. We went to medical doctors-holistic doctors-and chiropractors-we had blood work to see what deficiencies he might have and had allergy testing-he was given prescriptions for antibiotics (for the cellulitis)-salves-nasal sprays-and we used many home remedies recommended on this site. Although he found some relief with some of the remedies-nothing worked to slow down the psoriasis or the boils. We learned that Vit-D deficiency is a cause for psoriasis-he took mega doses of Vit-D 3. He is a carpenter and most of his work is outside in the sunlight-a wonderful, natural form of Vit-D. I do not believe he was absorbing the Vit-D in whatever form he got it. (Due to underlying issues.)

The doctors all asked the same question-was there an injury, or a life changing event-they were looking for a trigger-most people who have psoriasis to the degree my husband did-are younger at the offset-he was 50 years old. His only life change at the time was a job that had him working indoors and working through the nighttime when he normally would have been sleeping. He worked through the night and slept (as best as he could) during the day. He kept this schedule for several months and I believe this was the trigger they were looking for. He has always been a healthy, muscular, active man-he became tired, sick, and had a long list of illnesses. Regular sleep is important and I believe sleeping during the night is essential to good health. To wrap this up-after many months of searching and trying different meds, herbs, salves, remedies, we found John Pegano's book on Healing Psoriasis-followed his recommendation to stop eating nightshades and saw immediate results. The boils-terrible boils-dried up and have not returned-the Psoriasis is gone besides two patches on the insides of his legs near his ankles (we believe those will clear up with more time. ) We have followed other suggestions in the book but this one seems to be what turned things around, drastically. The nightshade vegetables include Potatoes, Tomatoes, Egg Plant, Spicey Peppers, & Tobacco. I hope this helps someone else suffering from similar problems with Psoriasis, cellulitis, or boils (cysts). We are still amazed at the results from something so simple-it was hard at first to change his diet to meals without these foods-but he will not touch any of them now.

I had bloodwork done and was very deficient in Vitamin D. I have suffered from mild psoriasis for about 10 years. I recently had a small patch come up on my elbow. I have been taking liquid Vitamin D-3 bought at GNC for a few weeks and the psoriasis is gone. I take one dropper full a day under the tongue and let it absorb in.

You spoke of success with clearing your psoriasis after taking a liquid form of Vitamin D, but didn't say how much Vitamin D per day... 1, 000 IU's? 5, 000?

If you could post how much per day, that would be helpful. Thanks.

For about 20 years, I had a chronic patch of psoriasis over my left eyebrow. I had tried several prescription and OTC creams, but none of them worked. After reading an article about how thousands of people got relief from psoriasis by sunbathing in the Dead Sea area, I remembered how my own psoriasis would practically disappear during the summer months when I sunbathed regularly. That was when I made the connection between sunshine and vitamin D. So, I started taking a daily supplement of 1000iu of vitamin D, which was in addition to the 400iu in my daily multivitamin. In about a week, I was amazed to see the patch of psoriasis had completely disappeared and has never returned. It may not work for everyone, but it sure worked for me!

Vitamin D3 2000-4000 iu per day (more in winter, less in summer, if you get natural sun)
fish oil - _____ (this is high grade Omega-3)
1 ibuprofen per day

This greatly reduced my symptoms and i have very few small spots left. This does take serveral months.

I would like to share with you my cure for Psoriasis. I had never had psoriasis until a few years ago when it broke out on the back of my scalp and quite severely on my left hand area inside the thumb and the palm of the hand. Anyone who has had psoriasis knows this is an extremely bad place to havce it!! I am also left handed so it became difficult to even write with a pen or do basic tasks.

I believe in natural medicines and it became an almost two year long journey to find the natural cure (for myself) and I'm hoping and praying it will work for others as well. I tried different natural topical treatments to no avail. And in a moment of clarity, realized that skin eruptions happen because of an imbalance 'within' the body.

First of all, i must stress that i was diligent about having my Vitamin D levels tested by my physician. I followed Dr. Mercolas advice on getting the correct vitamin D test and getting myself within the optimum range for good health. This took a few months. During that time i used a homemade cream with vitamin D drops on my hand. This helped, but did not cure the problem.

What truly made the difference was when i added in a very high quality omega 3 fish oil supplement. I vary between the capsules and the liquid high quality grade. Also, I use the recommended dose of 2 capsules daily or 1 tsp. liquid daily. If i take more than the recommended dose i feel imbalanced. Needless to say, one has to experiment with the correct dose as each person is unique biochemically.

The improvement in the psoriasis was startling. Within two months it was 98% gone, and it looks like it is never coming back. Since psorisis is a skin inflammation, and Vit D and omega fish oils are powerful anti-inflammatories, one can see why the remedy worked. I had used fish oils (omegas 3's) in the past, but had lapsed in taking them (stressful time in my life). I can see now how very important these two simple things are.

Also, I had a cat with a very serious allergy and skin problem. I started putting the Vit D drops (very tiny amounts) and fish oil in his food, and he cleared up almost completely. His condition was so serious that he would lose his hair and have bleeding crusty patches all over his body. Also, his nose would plug up so much he couldn't breathe. Now he is all clear and his dandruff is gone, he can breathe, and his fur feels like absolute SILK. All this with no pharma medicines.

So i gave it to my 3 elderly dogs....two german shepherds and a wolf hound. Huge improvement in their arthritis symptoms! Also, their fur and skin feel like absolute SILK.

Regarding the psoriasis and skin: i must mention that i use all natural soaps, dish soap and skin lotions. I also have a chemical free home (clean with baking soda, vinegar, and essential oils) Also, i wash my animals in a solution of borax and rinse them in clear water thoroughly. No chemical soaps or junk on their bodies!

I recently started adding a little Apple Cider Vinegar (the good organic kind with the mother in it) to my pets food. I only use tiny amounts, but they all seem to like it. I am trying this to see if it helps repel fleas, as I heard from elsewhere on Earth Clinic that his helps. We don't have a flea problem at all, but i'm hoping the ACV will keep it that way. (I also put garlic in their bone broth that they get).

I must mention again: the ACV i've been taking for a week dropped my blood pressure. I don't know if it has helped me lose weight because i don't use a scale. But i feel less bloated and more mentally perky. As with all things, i believe in consistency and in not overdoing. I only use the Earth Clinic recommendation of 2 tsp in 16 oz. water drank throughout the day. On some days i have ane extra glass because my body/mind is asking for it. I can hardly wait to see my doctor and give her the news that i lowered my blood pressure with such a simple thing.

May mother earth bless everyone who contributes their cures to this site!

Sunsong, just to let you know. You do not need to see fleas to have a problem. We learned this the hard way with "Pretty" the young calico kitty that came to our home late last year. She stayed mostly in our garage and was doing very well with the good diet we gave her, including a garlic capsule (to help control fleas) and a lecithin capsule daily. After awhile we noticed a small bump on the back of her neck, that was all. However, during this past month she started to have more bumps there and they looked like sores, raw and open. We took her in to see what was wrong. Then we learned that she was infected by the fleas. (They said that they are a real big problem here.) If you feel any bumps under the fur (especially at the back of the neck or under the chin), please start flea control immediately. Eventually, they can kill your beloved pet!

Ive tried them all for Psoriasis, and nothing works. I decided that in order for the scales to grow they have to have air/ 02. So I got out my squeeze bottle of washable school glue. Just sorta squeezed in all the places on my scalp as well as one elbow last night. I got up this am and to my surprise I peeled the glue off my elbow and it was smooth as silk. Washed my hair (a couple of times:() and most of the scales were gone. I probably missed places. I used a lot of lotion today on my elbow and it's fine.

I just finished putting more glue on my elbow just in case, and a lot on my scalp. We will see in the morning. I hope this works.
