My elderly father had a horrible case of psoraisis. After researching I made this salve many times for him:

1/2 cup shea butter; 1/4 c castor oil, 1/8 cup aloe, 1 oz almond oil; 1/2 t Vitamin E, 5-10 drops lavender, 5 drops tea tree, 3-4 drops Myrhh & Frankencense essential oils. Melt over low heat, mix and apply. You can also add Neem.

The massage therapist we had seeing him 2x week called to ask what it was... she was amazed at how it helped heal in in a couple months and loved the way her hands felt. The thick skin disappeared on his elbows but we didn't have the oppty to see how it worked on the scarring as he passed. Liver detox is also important.

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!

I've had severe, widespread psoriasis my entire life ( nearly 45 years) and I have gone into remission three times, miraculously and rapidly due to the following. Each time it eventually returned many years later, but only due to extreme stress in my life.

  • First: homeopathy. Each person has a unique remedy, different for everyone. Need to see a homeopath though, not over the counter pills.
  • Second: Took 10.000iu D3. In two weeks it was gone... like a miracle.
  • Third: Took 4000mg omega 3 fish oils per day. It took a few weeks and it was gone.

I was without for years, and only severe prolonged stress made it return. I'm currently back at the homeopath, and it's working again.

I made no other changes during these; ie diet or lifestyle.

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

I have a friend who had psoriasis really bad. It covered her whole body, her head too! I told her to take food grade (35%) hydrogen peroxide drops in a glass of distilled water as follows,

1. Take for 30 days.

2. Start with 1 drop day one, day 2, 2 drops, day 3, 3 drops continue to 21 drops if anytime you feel nausea back off a drop for a day and continue, take no more than 21 drops until the 30 days are up.

That was almost a year ago and her skin is clear and healthy! Hasn't had a outbreak since!

I've been reading a lot about hydrogen peroxide, is it safe to use in treating hep c?

Age 66. I have had single areas and multiple of what I called psoriasis (not diagnosed) for years. About 3 weeks ago, I got the typical rash, redness, and thickening on both forearms and chest. I have used peroxide 3% full strength rubbed on areas with good results. It still takes months to completely get rid of it but it works. It takes longer, too, when scratched or shaved over areas. The most recent is looking much better already.

I use a pint about 2-3 cups of h2o2 in the bath water, use a rag to remove the scales without discomfort and for a few days it's at ease. I'm sure used often it would work a lot better. Does work with eczema great also.

For Psoriasis, try inclined bed therapy. This is a circulation and digestive problem. I know a few folks now whose skin conditions got cured from inclining their beds. Its a brilliant treatment, that costs next to nothing.

A friend of mine ask me about how to cure psoriases in her toe nails. Her doctor said it was not of fungal origin. I did some research and find that Iodine 3% cam be used in the area. She did it and in a months + or - it was gone. I believe psoriases is not fungal in origin but related to toxins in the body.


Iodine

Oh my I can't believe iodine as a cure for psoriasis is not on this site. My sister came to visit for a week earlier this month. She was covered in psoriasis scales on her elbow, knees, wrist and inside the palm of her hand, also with scratches and lesions from scratching herself. I was shocked to see how aweful it had gotten since the last time we visited. She had been to Drs and Dermatoligists and spent thousands of dollars and no help. She spent hundreds on single tubes of cream that didnt even stop the itch let alone get rid of her psoriasis.

I had just started on Lugol's solution for my own symptoms of low iodine ie no energy and hair falling out... So I told her about the lugols and mentioned that in my reading about it, I heard it could help Psoriasis! She agreed to try it and started putting it on, after a couple of hours she stared at me in disbelief stating she had not itched or scratched since putting it on so put it on again. She and I were both excited the next day when here psoriasis was 50% gone! Needless to say by the end of the week all she had was a small patch where it was the worst on her wrist and probably due to the fact that she didnt use it as much the last couple of days because she didnt want the discoloration on her wrist when we went out for the evening! I'm still in shock that nothing helped her for years and in one week she's 95% cured of Psoriasis!! I sent the bottle home with her and she continues to improve...

I just hope this helps someone since I saw it with my own eyes how beneficial even 2% Lugol's solution is. I imagine the 5% will work even faster but it did work for her maybe you too:)

PS She did take a couple of drops in water each day as well as topically!

I hope you're following the procedures for iodine supplementation. As iodine replaces bromine in your system, it leaves the bromine to float free in your bloodstream and it does some very bad stuff to you if you let it build up. For me, I was craving so much salt it was ridiculous and I was feeling more and more run down. I went to my functional medicine doctor and told him I thought it was possibly bromine detox. It turns out it was interfering with my body's utilization of magnesium. That is a pretty serious consequence. You can't foot with bromine detox. However, it is pretty simple to deal with. You must ingest chloride (in the form of unprocessed sea salt or, if your sodium sensative, I saw that ConcenTrace Trace Mineral drops contains a decent amount of chloride. ) If you don't already have it, search for a document called "The Guide to Supplementing with Iodine." It has some great tips for dealing with all the concequences of iodine supplementation. I found it here: http://home.comcast.net/~jocy1/junk/The Guide to Supplementing with Iodine.pdf

FYI: The ultimate cause of psoriasis (and many degenerative diseases) is leaky gut (resulting from poor diet and excessive toxicity. ) A functional medicine doctor will help heal your sister from the inside starting with, I presume, cleaning up the gut (getting rid of infection) and working to kill off the systemic candida (fungus) in her bloodstream, etc. (I've been working on cleaning up my system for the past year and the number of changes are immense! ) I wish you both luck!!!

Suffering from severe psoriasis since 2009, mayo has given me so many drugs to try and steroids none of which gets to the root of the problem, lost alot of work over this condition. What did they give you to kill off systemic canida(fungas) in the bloodstream? and is there a functional Dr.in dermatology? making homemade salves they feel good but need to get to the root of this problem asap. I refuse drug therapy cuz it causes problems with your organs. At least once a yr end up in the hospital for 2-3 days being wrapped up like a mummy, with steroids and vanicream. This calms the condition but does not take it out of my body. Gonna find out what test they need to do for fungas. Wish me luck.

Hey Karen. Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE), is great for addressing fungus issues. Some have reported noticing results starting within minutes and I cleared up a spreading fungal infection (both the spreading and the original infection site) completely within a few days. All traces are gone. You can check on line for more information on GSE but I think it is a very easy and safe thing to try.

Thank you SO MUCH for the info on iodine and on bromine detox! I have only got tiny spots of psoriasis in the 48th year of my life. Popping open a capsule of vitamin D3, and applying it would provide relief, and heal it. But this latest spot on my eyelid has been a really bad problem that would not go away. AND it came up as soon as I started iodine supplementation, for the first time since moving the farthest north I have lived in my life (Chicago suburbs).

So I read the PDF Guide to Supplementing With Iodine which you provided. And then I went and took 1/2 tsp of sea salt in some water, and then drank as much fresh water as that made me need. Also, I had quit taking iodine for a couple of days, as I noticed it made the psoriasis flare up way worse. Finally, my eyelid is mostly healed up! In ONE DAY! The PDF says that the chloride part of sodium chloride (salt) binds to the bromide that the iodine supplementation set free, and then the bromide (which was causing the psoriasis, as my body was trying to detox it) gets peed out.

I had no idea that bromide is probably causing me so many health problems. The PDF says iodine is needed in all the organs in our bodies, especially the ones with mucous linings. I think this also solved my HORRIBLE acid reflux problem. The acid reflux is suddenly gone, after one tsp of salt, too. Here's my logic on why: Acid reflux is caused by a bad bacterial overgrowth in the stomach, which weakens the sphincter and lets the acid out into the esophagus. Iodine kills bad bacteria, but leaves the beneficial bacteria. But iodine couldn't help my stomach until I took the salt that removed the bromide, or bromine, or whatever form that stuff was in.

I have psoriasis behind my ears and at times it weeps and is so painful. Having had it for at least 10 years I tried cortisone in the early days but my inner instinct turned me off it very quickly. I've tried all sorts of so-called remedies since then. On this site recently I read somewhere about Jojoba oil and have used it with great success on my psoriasis. It is so soothing and clears it up within a couple of days. If I miss a day, however, it returns, but not as bad as previously. Although the Jojoba oil isn't a permanent cure-all it's the best I've used. The extra virgin or virgin is the best and you can buy it from any health store. Another bonus: it's absolutely beautiful on your face and body, is inexpensive and goes a long way as well.

Psoriasis:

Green juice, milk thistle and exercise. I was covered in it, started juicing and blending, eating tons of milk thistle and mine cleared up for years. When I stop, it's back. Lidex ointment, not cream, is what I was prescribed as a child, but its a steroid. It works but not healthy long term. :}

I'm looking for advise on what supplements to take for psoriasis and possible pcos. I have not been officially diagnosed with Pcos but I have many of the symptoms including issues with facial hair, fatigue etc. Two years ago I gave up drinking alcohol and adopted a healthier lifestyle including exercising every day etc. My skin had never been better, pretty much all traces of psoriasis vanished (the poss pcos symptoms stayed the same). All of a sudden last year at precisely the time my hay fever erupted I had a huge outbreak of psoriasis (possibly guttate).

This has mostly cleared up after many months but a few patches remain and where my skin was badly affected. I now have discoloured marks where there is little or no pigment. I'm really interested in addressing these issues and I think there must be an autoimmune system link with them all. Can you suggest anything to try and keep another psoriatic episode at bay and get rid of the remaining psoriasis? If it helps the other issues then that would be a huge bonus.

Thank you so much for your time.

I had good results with this supplement taking it multiple times per day. https://amzn.to/2Dl8VFM

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.

The role of mind and emotional peace in psoriasis

84, male, from Berlin/Germany, in Australia since 1952.
Stressful marriage on top of all other newbie cultural adjustments.
Psoriasis all over the usual places.
After 15 years in AU visited my home town Berlin on my own for about 3 months, at the end of which all symptoms had dissipated and I was cured.

It never recurred.
