I have had psorasis of the scalp for years. I have tried a lot of different treatments, even one I got from your site borax which works but I had to wash my hair every 2 days to keep it under control, just recently I tried boracic powder, 2 tsp in a cup of hot water allow it to cool then pour it onto my scalp and massage it in and leave it on my scalp for 15 minutes, I did this for 5 days, touch wood it's been 2 weeks now and no sign of the scalp psorasis.

Hi Maria I got mine over the internet from 2 places, the only I went to 2 places was that the supplier in nsw was a bit slow and it turns out he was having trouble with computer, so I went to another site from memory it's called whelping supplies, its near you in victoria. I purchased it to try to kill off foot odour, I had been using borax on my scalp 2 tbl to a glass of water, every second day, so I thought I would try the boracic acid (aka boric acid powder), so far so good even if you have to use it every 5-7 days, its better than scalp psorasis, best of luck it works for me.

I researched the Budwig Protocol after I read about on a yahoo group about 4 years ago. To help control my asthma AND terrible psoriasis. I consumed the foundation meal (flaxseed oil/cottage cheese - focc) religiously for 5 months. My psoriasis totally cleared and my asthma improved immensely. This diet, once you get used to it, helps many conditions but is used primarily for cancer. This is a "great anti-inflammatory diet."

Till this day, I eat it 3 to 4 times a week for breakfast. Be sure to follow the exact guidelines if you are on a quest to cure cancer. Also, be careful to stop consuming "focc" 3 to 4 days before any surgeries as it thins your blood nicely. I am a true believer in this diet as a "cancer preventative".

Blessings, Sofia

Here in South Africa, we have a plant called Bulbinella. I was advised to apply the gel from the crushed leaves on my patches of psoriasis by someone who was CURED doing this twice a day for 6 months. After only 1 week, I am amazed. My skin is smooth and the itch is almost entirely gone. I have continued using coconut oil as well to moisturize. Bulbinella grows and transplants easily here and is common in most gardens but that's not much help if you are not in SA. However search online for this. Here is some more info from Wiki: The genus Bulbinella includes 18 species occurring in the Northern, Western and Eastern Cape Provinces of South Africa and an additional six species from the main islands of New Zealand. All the species have attractive orange, yellow, cream or white flowers in dense, unbranched racemes.


Candida Connection

I suffered from psoriasis for 10 years, with nothing working, including both prescribed and natural remedies. Recently, I read a connection between psoriasis and candida. As far as I can tell, psoriasis can be caused by many things, which is why it's so hard to treat. If you haven't explored the possibility that you have an intestinal yeast infection, you may find that it's the source of your psoriasis.

I did the simple candida "spit test". Fill a tall glass of water & put next to bed. Upon awakening, gather as much spit as you can and spit into the glass before doing anything else. Wait 20 mins. If the spit forms long stringy 'legs' you probably have candida. If the spit sinks totally you could have severe candida. I tested positive.

I took Syntol (enzyme-probiotic) for 3 months to clear my candida (9 caps/day 1st month, 6 caps/day 2nd month, 3 caps/day 3rd month) and also ingested natural anti-fungal agents to help (fresh garlic clove, oregano oil extract, etc). I noticed within the very first week that my psoriasis was already getting better and within a month, it was totally gone.

A bonus tip: A few weeks into treatment I also discovered cold-pressed Castor Oil and rubbed it into my skin daily. This seemed to speed up healing and also took care of my dry and flaky skin in non-psoriasis areas.

Hi Herbgirl... My candida experience was similar to yours. As well as candida, I had psoriasis, eczma, tinea cruris(jock itch) and athletes foot (as well as alot of other problems). I had these skin problems for decades. When I eventually defeated and rid myself of my systemic candida, all these skin problems simply disppeared except the tinea cruris -- and I got rid of that in 2 days by simply applying Milk of Magnesia. So all these skin problems were associated with my candida and are perhaps best regarded as just part of the symptoms. This calls for a paradigm shift in our way of thinking about healing and cures that is wholly different from medical science's habit of treating just the symptoms. If I had gone to a doctor with all my candida problems, then undoubtedly he or she would have given me a powder and cream for my athlete's foot, another cream for my eczma, another cream for my tinea cruris as well as more internal drugs for my candida....

In most of the medical studies I've ever read on psoriasis, the research authorities, in their wisdom, have declared that you cannot get rid of psoriasis and, indeed, that it is a pre-cancerous condition and not so trivial.

However, through my own candida experience and riddance, I would say that these medical conclusions are incorrect. I got rid of my psoriasis 5 years ago at the same time as getting rid of my systemic candida problem and it has never reappeared. Therefore, I would also have to conclude that because of these facts, it is not the psoriasis that is pre-cancerous but that the candida should be regarded as the pre-cancerous culprit instead.

Gentle Earth,

Thanks for your well wishing. Yes! You are right about the coconut oil. I use only cold pressed organic coconut oil now when cooking, and I also use it on my skin. One of the anti-fungals--in addition to things like raw garlic, organo oil, pau d'arco, calendula and others--that is recommended for yeast infections is cold pressed coconut oil.

However, I did find that using it alone wasn't enough. The anti-fungal approach to yeast infections is only one part of treatment and if done alone doesn't seem to help rebalance your system. I did just anti-fungals first and felt great for awhile, but then the yeast just came back again.

After exhaustive internet searching I realized that it's a 3-pronged approach: 1) anti-fungals to kill back the yeast 2) digestive enzymes & probiotics to rebalance the intestines so the yeast can't get a new foothold and 3) change in diet (especially if your diet is high in processed foods and/or if you are sensitive to gluten and dairy)

Hope this helps!

Hi Bill,

I couldn't agree with you more. Psoriasis, eczema, etc. are all symptoms of something else that is wrong. Treating symptoms, and trying to treat just one part of the body without looking at the whole system, rarely gets anyone anywhere. A paradigm shift is needed indeed!

What first got me to look into self-treatment was when I began to have unexplainable stomach pains. I first went to the doctor for my stomach and she said, "oh tummy aches are very common. See if it goes away in a few months. " That was it! She didn't even examine me! I then went to a naturopath who said it could be food sensitivities. She tested me for gluten and dairy allergies, nothing. Like the doctor, she said, "see if goes away."

That was when I really took things into my own hands and hit the internet, discovering the candida connection to a host of ailments, including skin diseases, IBS, and other so-called untreatable illnesses.

Like any paradigm shift, if we do go to doctors it is our responsibility to speak up and share our own findings, even if the doctor shakes them off and tells us we're crazy. I have a friend who completely changed her doctor's perspective when she was prescribed antibiotics. She accepted the prescription but said she'd like to try some natural remedies first. She came back to her doctor in a week totally cured, and gave the doctor her own "prescription. " Since then, her doctor started to work with a naturopath and now prescribes alternative treatments before handing out antibiotics. So: there's hope!

In the meantime, viva self-empowerment and sites like this!!! :-)

Herbgirl, You are a fount of knowledge. Thank you. Question for you, how did you decide on such an aggressive syntol regime.

Also the saliva test has been pretty thoroughly discredited as a mktg hoax to buy a probiotic product. Tried it this morning and failed, part of my saliva went sallying to the bottom, while the rest kind of broke up leggy at the top

Hello Herbgirl. I must reply to your post since, your post lead me to alleviate all my symptoms of psoriasis out of the many I read. I reply to you in thanks but I am also in very large part writing to anyone who has symptoms of psoriasis so that I may possibly help someone. Much of the information on the web as of 2012 was not encouraging and I don't suspect it has changed. I read your post several months ago when I had an itching spreading spot on the front of my leg exactly where my cell phone was kept in my front pocket. I then learned that prolonged cell phone/skin contact causes a burn and psoriasis can be "triggered" from a skin injury. I believed a burn could be just such a skin injury. (Dear reader: If you are reading this to hopefully cure your condition please excuse my rambling style. I know how difficult it is combing through posts looking for a solution. I have included all I have done to elleviate my symptoms and all the reasoning I can remember, but it is scattered throughout the post).

I've been no stranger to strange skin conditions (and doctors shrugging their shoulders at me and giving me some ointment of some sort and hoping that I go away) so I read up on it myself and ended up using hydro-cortizone cream very early on which cleared it temporarily and allowed me to sleep without the burning itch but would come back even more severe and spread out days later. I read and searched more. I chose not to be diagnosed since the hydrocortozone cream made it go away temporarily. I figured my guess was as good as most any doctor I had run into at that point. If the hydrocortozone didn't have any affect at I all, I would have been at a dermatologist at once with fears of chemotherapy. Using the hydro-cortozone cream lead me to believe that what I had was most likely psoriasis and not anything more severe. Also I had quite of a bit of separation of my middle fingernail bed on both hands which I understand is an indicator of psoriasis or a type of it. On the spot on my leg, there was a bit of flaking and it seamed to have a cyclic nature of spread and scale/flake and it always itched, especially when I was stressed. All these things were consistant with psoriasis symptoms and the pictures of diagnosed psoriasis affected skin on the web looked most like my condition.

Based mainly on your posts I started eating two table spoons of organic coconut oil twice a day and soon I was sore all over. I had attempted a candida diet about ten years before and I had given up on it. I realized this ache was the "die off" feeling that I had felt on the candida diet so I started on the Syntol immediately. Also I was drinking the organic apple cider vinegar and baking soda (1 TBSP to 1/2 teaspoon baking soda to about 10 oz water) twice a day. After a week on the Syntol (3 capsules 1 hour before a meal and 3 capsules 2 hours after a meal) two or three times a day, I noticed less itching and no more spreading on my leg. For the next several weeks I would only itch and flair up during periods of stress but it was less severe and there was healing (natural looking skin) at the center of the red spot. I quit taking the 2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil after I believed the Syntol was doing a better job of eliminating and evacuating the yeasts. My meaning is that I felt less sore and I figured I was exposing myself to less toxins and in this way take longer to accomplish the gut flora balance which I thought might be easier on my system in general. Plus the relaxation of the symptoms resulted in less stress and more confidence that my body was being allowed to heal itself. As far as I can figure, when the coconut oil kills the yeast it just releases the toxins into your body, but the syntol surrounds them colloidally (I'm familiar with colloid action having had a bit of chemistry in a previous lab job that I had to quit due to allergies... ). I now see the soreness after ingesting coconut oil as a very useful indicator of yeast in the gut (the more sore the worse the problem I suppose).

After about a month and a half of taking the Syntol there was a red circle left around the affected area which diminished after a few more weeks. At this time I relaxed my intake of apple cider vinager and baking soda. In times of stress, a small area of where the problem first started would turn red for about an hour or two and then subside without itching. It has been several months and I am completely itch free even under stress. The area of the first redness and itching is now just barely visible like a year old tan line and invisible under bright light. Thank you so much for your post! My first symtoms started about 8 months ago with a spot about the size of a silver dollar and after three months was about 5 inches in diameter. Now, at about five months from the worst point, I am completely free of any trouble from it. I am now quite thankful for the ordeal to have brought this underlying gut flora balance problem to my attention again and hopefully I have solved it. It is quite likely the underlying problem would have come to the surface in a possibly more severe manner in the future. I drink the apple cider vinegar occasionally. I took the Syntol for about three months. I've taken a break from it for a while since it's not exactly cheap (worth it though). I believe I'll experiment taking a maintance type of amount to see if my fingernails will completely attach. They are not quite as seperated but still a noticeable bit detached at one side.

Re: Post by Brendan from Adelaide, South Australia- Neither ACV nor baking soda worked for me, but when my scalp psoriasis was noticeably better after a week at the beach, I began using pure castile soap to clean my scalp and then rinsed it with a small amount of sea salt dissolved in warm water. Saline solution does sting a bit at first, but I decided to rinse it from my scalp only. My existing sores healed quickly - and without the excessive itching that had kept me constantly digging at my scalp. (I preferred sores to the constant itch! ) I've experienced 95% improvement after three months of this regimen and will likely fare much better when I finally conquer the learned scratching habit. I pray that this information will help others who found no relief from the many other remedies suggested, because psoriasis has such a negative effect on the quality of one's life. Best wishes!

I've had a small case of psoriasis for over fourteen years on one of my elbows. I tried various topical applications recommended by doctors, like OTC cortisone cream and another cream called Elocon which you can get only by prescription. Cortisone cream did nothing for me whatsoever; Elocon cleared up the legion temporarily but it would come right back when I stopped putting it on. I stopped using both creams because I did not like the chemical ingredients in them.

This winter I decided to change my face-washing method from regular facial cleanser to natural Oil Cleaning method using the mixture of castor oil and olive oil. The oil cleaning worked very nicely... But it turned out that there was an unexpected bonus effect on my psoriasis! Without giving much thought, I rubbed the oil mixture (with greater concentration of castor oil) on my elbow. The next day, when I looked at the elbow -- I was surprised to see the thing actually clearing up just as good as Elocon! Since then, I've only tried this for about a week and I haven't been very persistent in my application, just randomly putting things on whenever I remembered.. But I'm guessing if I continue this everyday perhaps it will really be gone completely. I read that castor oil is naturally antibacterial so I wonder if it played some role to clear up my small psoriasis. If anybody else share the same experience I'd like to know. I am posting this because I noticed there was no section for castor oil under the category of psoriasis.

Hi Paloma, I just wanted to back you up on the castor oil. It is one of those 'miracle' remedies that can be used on the skin, hair, and even as a hot pack for curing major internal diseases (see Edgar Cayce and castor oil).

I used castor oil on my psoriasis, along with an internal yeast treatment (see my psoriasis post called 'Candida Connection'), and found that it really sped up my healing. After just one use I noticed a huge difference on my psoriasis patches!

Castor oil is also great for age spots, wrinkles, dandruff, and a host of other maladies.

Glad you are well!

I was talking to someone and she said that cayenne pepper made her friend's psoriasis go away. I have been taking it for two days now and for the first time, I have no pain in that area.

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.

For over 6 months I have been drinking 8 oz. or more of cherry juice (bought concentrated and I diluted and added agave to sweeten) to see what affect it would have for me. My mother-in-law began drinking it to reduce uric acid that inflamed her gout. I have found that my psoriasis, which I have had since age 9 and am almost 40, is greatly improved and many of my worst patches have disappeared entirely. I try to eat a healthy diet of fresh fruits and veggies, less fried foods, and less sugar as well. I take digestive enzymes and d-limonene to help prevent heart burn and issues with my hiatal hernia and I also take a daily calcium/magnesium supplement.

Don't know if it is the combination of these things or the anti-inflammatory and mineral properties in the cherry juice that has brought about this healing. I am thankful for this amazing improvement! My skin hasn't been this clear since I was a kid!

To all sufferers of dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema I have a very good news for all of you I have found a cure but before that I have to tell you. I had Psoriasis for over 12 years now I am at the 4th day of using virgin coconut oil. I drink 2-3 tablespoon a day or better mixed the coconut oil with your salad in every meal. As I was saying I am just at the 4th day but My God I couldn't believe it my skin looks much much much healthier no itch, no flaking I can even well well sleep better than I used to. Guys trust me it will change your life for the best Im like is this for real. I've seeing dermatologist, these worsening steroids they gave doesnt help at all instead it will get worst. Just give it a try and see for yourself I'm not kidding at all this is it.

Just few things things to remember Cut all your sweets anything that is made of sugar, white flour, starchy foods . Drink a lot of water in between meals, exercise chill out stress free lifestyle. Eat a lot of veggies mixed it with coconut oil. That's All. Please spread this words to all you known who suffers from this diseases.

Coconut oil is helpful for some people, but not for others. I went through many jars of quality CO both orally and topically with no noticeable change in psoriasis. I've read anecdotal reports saying it helps and others saying it doesn't. Definitely worth a try in case you are one of the lucky ones! It's pretty inexpensive and readilly available.

As far as being a cure, well......not for me.

In reply to Kalpanamayee (I),

Thank you for the thought!

I have tried coconut oil, evening primrose oil, castor oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, canola oil, shea butter, almond oil, black cumin seed oil, vegetable oil, emu oil, sesame seed oil, fish oil, black currant seed oil, borage oil, mineral oil and others with mixed results, but none helped to lessen my psoriasis, only soothe. Jojoba oil and Emu oil would be my favorites as far as being easy to use with minimal smell. I have tried well over a hundred supplements and alternative remedies including everything Ted has posted on EC and again with little if any benefit or benefit that was very short lived and not maintainable.

Psoriasis is different for different people and some people can get benefit from certain oils while others can not. The type and severity of the psoriasis also plays into the equation. I have had guttate, inverse, plaque and the dreaded erythrodermic psoriasis which can kill you. My psoriasis falls into the moderate to severe category and is fairly resistant to many treatments. I suspect that what we know as psoriasis can be caused by many different problems in the body and the psoriasis that we see may only be a symptom of any of those problems. This could explain why something may completely clear one person with psoriasis while doing absolutely nothing for another person with psoriasis.

I am currently experimenting with a supplement that seems to be helping and I will post about it here on EC if it it continues to improve my psoriasis and continues to work over time. For now it is just another experiment for me and it is too soon to even discuss it because I have tried many things that initially showed some benefit, but that was all as the benefit quickly went away.

I slathered it all over my feet before bedtime and put ankle socks on and go to bed. After 2 wks, the psoriasis has completely gone away. Amazing stuff!

Starting from what appeared to be insect bites, this skin ailment covered most of lower legs and appeared on arms also. It was apparent that anything with fragrance in it was affecting this skin condition, so I proceeded to use soaps like pine tar, and ones that were fragrance free. I purchased approximately $300.00 worth of over the counter ointments, antihistimine, antibiotics from doctor and after waiting seven (7) months to for epidermist I was diagnosed with psoriasis and given prescription for cortisone cream. I filled two prescriptions, with no results. My daughter's husband had an ointment for treating poison ivy, same as mine, only half the strength. I applied this ointment occasionally and EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL three times (3x) per day, and got healed with marvellous results within one month. No more psoriasis.

Coconut oil amazingly cleared the Psoriasis I have had on my hands, elbows, knees and spots on my legs and ankles for over 40 years. I take one teaspoon in the morning. It took about one month to clear. I would like to say thank you very much for such a fantastic website and thank you to all the contributors!

I am a little mad at myself for not using this sooner (I think I avoided it because I hate using anything greasy). For starters, I found my coconut oil at my local Walmart. I use Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil, which you can find in the vitamin section for $10.

The first time I applied this, I put it directly on the affected areas and left it on overnight (to heat the oil I leave the container in a bowl of hot water). By morning, all the red patches had turned white and were completely smooth. I can't tell you how thrilled I was. I now use this as a deep conditioner once a week, as well. Coconut Oil has become my go-to treatment for my psoriasis.

Hi did u rub the coconut oil into ur skin or just take it by eating and it cleared up?

EC: Sounds like the poster from 2011 took coconut oil internally.
