Banana peel rubbed on psoriasis, google it. I am in the process of noticing an improvement from doing it. It's worth a try.


Oregano Leaf

I noticed in your long list of ailments, psoriasis was not mentioned. Please let people know that Oregano Leaf absolutely gets rid of psoriasis in a big way. I have battled psoriasis since I was 10 yrs old (I'm now 48). I had heard that oregano leaf and olive leaf were good for infections so one day, I started taking them both. Within a week my skin was so clear my husband commented. I started wondering what I had done differently. I had taken olive leaf before with no visable result so I started investigating the oregano. There are MANY resources out there on psoriasis and oregano leaf, and also, that psoriasis is mainly caused by a fungus (which oregano goes after). I personally buy OregaMax since other oreganos have not worked for me. People should know about this!! It is wonderful. Three to five capsules a day (divided) should do it. I got my initial results simply taking 1 both am and pm.

I tried this several months ago and it did not have any effect on my psoriasis but I have read other reports of this working for people. I believe it really matters what type of p you have and the reasons behind it. Oregano leaf if basically a natural antibiotic and anti- fungal. It is very effective for many things. (If you have hormone balance problems beware and pay attention to your body as it can have some effect on you.)


Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda

I have suffered from psoriasis for years but have been able to control it with different types of creams, lotions, antibiotics etc from doctors and skin specialists but lost faith a few years ago & thought their must be an alternative out there and decided to research on the internet. I found aloe vera gel to be wonderful for 4-5 years but psoriasis always needs a change in treatment methods after a while so after having a terrible outbreak on my face (which I have always dreaded) I decided to try a Paw Paw cream (which featured on tv about a month or so ago), its described as liquid gold. I was still wearing makeup during the week so I didnt see a speedy improvement until I stopped wearing makeup and read about apple cider vinegar which I use for my scalp but never thought to mix with baking soda & take internally. After my husband returned from being away all week he thought I was wearing makeup. My face looks fabulous after only 4 drink doses of ACV, using the pawpaw ointment twice daily, and moisturing with a sorbolene cream during the day to keep my face moisturised. Thanks to reading this site I will be able to wear makeup again next week.

Can you update your condition? How many times a week and for how long did you do the bath? Thank you for putting out this info.


Vinegar and Olive Oil

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.

Eliminate Wheat

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.


Distilled White Vinegar

After I dampened a small sponge with water, I poured a small amount of distilled white vinegar onto the sponge, which I then used to lightly scrub away the unsightly white patches from my chin. Although this vinegar treatment does not STOP the appearance of white flaky patches (which I believe to be Psoriasis), it definitely slows-down the recurrence.


Ted's Remedy Reader Feedback
Posted by Wayne (Exeter, Devon, Uk )

Hi, I have suffered scalp psoriasis on and off for numerous years. Sometimes I find a shampoo that will clear it but the scalp appears to become accustomed to it after a while and it is no longer as effective. Recently, after washing my hair I noticed a strong ammonia smell from my scalp which eventually subsides. I would like to try Ted's lotion recipe of 5% Milk of magnesia, 10-15% Ammonium Chloride & 5% Xylitol. Is this solution made in water or an unscented shampoo? Will let you know how I get on.
