Urine Therapy + ACV Helping Psoriasis

Celine (UK) on 09/06/2021
5 out of 5 stars

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.

Multiple Remedies for Psoriasis Patches

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.

MIS Adventure Books (Earth Clinic's YouTube Channel) on 06/17/2020

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 ?...it'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 ???

Maximum strength zinc oxide diaper rash cream, 40% zinc oxide, works wonders. It's white cream. Rub it in. Each day will get better and better. The cream comes off with soap and water. : )

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?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.

Re: Lecithin for Psoriasis

I had psoriasis. (for decades) and the only thing that would clear it up was lecithin. When I first learned of it, I found gel caps that I was taking (1gram) 3x a day, it did start going away, and I looked for other sources, and found lecithin granules which I started taking 1tbl 3x a day which finally mostly got rid of it. But I never could totally get rid of it on my scalp.

I had severe psoriasis, had seen many doctors, and none could help me. Until I read Let's Get Well by Davis....there are clean organic sources of lecithin you can give her.

Good luck. I got the lecithin from a vitamin store. I took it every day for over 30 years, never had high cholesterol either.

Psoriasis: Effects of Sugar, Acidic Foods, Stress, and Gut Homeostasis

Number Five (Beez Neez) on 07/10/2020
5 out of 5 stars

Effects of Sugar, Acidic Foods, Proteins, Sleep/Fear/Stress and Gut Homeostasis

Here are two circumstances that created flares where psoriasis appeared suddenly, in new places (over my face and neck). I have never had it like this before, and have had only scalp psoriasis for thirty years. In both situations, my diet changed suddenly.

It might sound strange, but I am excited by the patterns! I hope you will clearly see the three elements that are common to guaranteed psoriasis outbreaks. My two cents at the end.

HOW TO INVOKE PSORIASIS FLARES, A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

[Circumstance 1: Vacation at parent's house for two weeks]

[Step 1] Eat daily diet of store bought BBQ chicken (2 days in the fridge then frozen), greens, coffee, soft cheeses with processed crackers and 1-2 glasses white wine. All of this was unusual for me. The greens didn't compensate for the acidic nature of the other foods, and the sugars in the wine and crackers. Usually I'd be gluten free, or close to it, and not eat processed foods.

[Step 2] Stress involved with packing and moving to a new location & wanting to pack a lot of luggage perfectly to make travel easier.

[Step 3] Sleeplessness due to worry about being late, not wanting to say goodbye on that note. This broadly translates to fear, stress, self doubt. I've noticed this is a primary trigger with psoriasis.

[Step 4] Went on a 5 day olive oil fast to try to correct. More on this in a separate post.

[Circumstance 2: Applying for Grad School on a Deadline During Lockdown]

[Step 1] Ate 1kg of sugar over a week. It is the first time I've had sugar in the house, and I went nuts with the deliciousness. After 7 days, I noticed the start of psoriasis on my eyelid (unusual). During this time I had to quickly try to decide how to spend the next six months, and there was a lot of uncertainty. Ate three cans of Kippers (smoked herring) over three days to try to get Omega 3s.

[Step 2] Sleeplessness due to concern about application. Offset the three hours of sleep by the gift of some gorgeous coffee someone sent me. While I stopped drinking coffee, I went to town, with 3 to 5 coffees over a day. The next day, the psoriasis was out in force, forehead, eyelids, behind the ears, over my ears. What the sugar and protein began, the coffee and lack of sleep turned into a quagmire.

[Step 3] Continue drinking coffee and not sleeping well. Not drinking much water, either. My tongue is now white. Before Step 1, my tongue had been pink. This indicates that

[Step 4] Attempt to offset psoriasis by eating lots of herbs and spices (sumac, cayenne, basil, rosemary, curry) in butter beans with coconut oil. Also having Vitamin C and green powdered drink, with pea protein and digestive enzymes to attempt to offset prior misgivings.

HYPOTHESIS: Psoriasis flares are the result of inflammation and ingesting foods that promote unfavorable bacterial and fungal growth. These conditions take time to resolve, however can be resolved by restoring balance. In scientific journals, this is known as "Maintaining Gut Homeostasis." Further resources are available via Google Scholar.

1. Sugar destabilises blood sugar, causing inflammation. It is also food for "bad bacteria" and candida to grow in the intestinal system. While in mainstream medicine, small intestinal fungal overgrowth (SIFO) is not commonly recognised, there are many studies in specialist scientific journals around Intestinal Candidiasis, accessible via via Google Scholar.

2. When the body is in a state of inflammation, it is less capable of tolerating proteins. This may be a result of changes in the intestinal structure during inflammation. It is also less capable of tolerating anything that may ferment in the intestines in a way that in open air would usually produce mold (e.g. coffee grounds, fruit, flours).

3. Caffeine and coffee contribute to inflammation by promoting acidity in the body. This may increase growth of unfavorable organisms in the gut.

3. Low quality sleep destabilises blood sugar and promotes inflammation. In part this is related to increased cortisol and stress levels, and circumventing the usual repair mechanisms that occur during deep sleep.

4. Self doubt and rejection are primary triggers for stress for all humans. The can be managed through establishing a lifestyle that promotes a healthy sense of self and good calm boundaries around that. An unbalanced gut promotes anxiety.

5. Die-off that can occur when we suddenly change the diet after promoting unfavorable gut organisms. The gut takes time to respond to changed conditions and heal. It takes less time to become unbalanced. Removing the triggers will remove symptoms, however the gut also needs to be healed. Olive oil fasting may help with this.

6. Early and focused intervention to maintain gut homeostasis after a dietary trigger results in a controlled and shorter psoriasis flare. Longer periods of gut imbalance lead to longer recovery times for the resolution of gut inflammation.

Coconut Oil, Hot Water Helpful for Psoriasis Itch Relief

Julie (Az) on 10/01/2018
4 out of 5 stars

My psoriasis came on 3 years ago - with a vengeance! I did not know what it was, and doctors were clueless (and predictably incurious). It burned, stung, and oozed. The itching nearly drove me insane (or perhaps it succeeded - not sure - haha). The ONLY thing that calmed the burning was coconut oil (extra virgin organic) but was not 100% effective. It sure helped, though.

For the itching, I discovered by accident that running the area under VERY hot water - almost scalding - was incredibly effective and the relief lasted for several hours (AH! Sweet sleep! ) but I had logistics problems because I could only access the bathtub faucet which prevented a lot of areas from getting this relief. You'll need to be right at the controls, as your skin will tell you "hotter" or "cooler" as needed, and it will vary by the moment. Pat dry w/ paper towel & don't apply anything to the skin.

There are a few theories why the hot water works, one of which is that it forces the release of histamines out through the skin. But as far as I know, no one really knows why. It just does.

Zinc and Dead Skin Solution for Psoriasis

Julie (Az) on 09/30/2018
4 out of 5 stars

I had what I called the Rash From Hell. It started 3 years ago after an extremely high stress episode. First my face broke out with oozing, itching & burning. That cleared up after 3 months, then it showed up on both hands. Couldn't prepare food, do dishes, household chores... That took about 3 months to clear up. Next was my legs - ankles, thighs and calves. Then my arms.

I went to the ER when it was at its worst. 4 times. No help. I got a range of diagnoses from "some kinda rash" to shingles to pellagra! No M.D. ever figured it out. Just prescriptions up the wazoo to treat their guesses. I didn't take them.

After researching off and on for almost 3 years, I finally realized it was psoriasis, which I then researched intensively. After less than a week, it is now 80-90% cleared up! Here's what I did...

I started taking 50 mg of zinc 2X/day. Won't mention brand name, but it's "zinc (as zinc gluconate dihydrate, zinc picolinate)." Chelated. You may want to try a higher dose or take more than twice a day -- I only weigh 88 lbs, so you may want to adjust accordingly.

The sores are 90% gone. All I have left are a few areas of flaky skin, mostly on my shins.

For dead skin clean-up, I'm using a solution recommended by Tony Pantalleresco made of about 16 oz white vinegar, 1 rounded tablespoon of sea salt, and 20 drops of 5% lugol's. Shaken - not stirred. :-) I dampen a wash rag with it and then gently rub off the dead skin.

I won't call this solution a cure, but it will help keep the dead flaky skin to a minimum, and some areas where I've used it have stopped being flaky altogether for about 3 days now (but that could just be the zinc doing its work).

I tried many many things over 3 years' time before I realized what I had, so feel free to ask me about something you're considering.

Tea Tree Oil, Aloe, Coconut Oil Relieves Scalp Psoriasis Itching Temporarily

Crystal (Connecticut) on 06/17/2018
3 out of 5 stars

For scalp psoriasis, I currently use 6 drops tea tree oil, 1 tbsp aloe vera gel, and 1/2 tbsp coconut oil. I apply it to my scalp and leave it on overnight. In the morning, I wash it out and shower. This helps relieve the itching for a while. I have to do it every night, though. I hear shampoos can flare it up. I've been using a cleansing conditioner. Are there good shampoos for psoriasis that won't fade my hair color? Regular dandruff shampoos will fade my color with their sulfates and parabens, and they could also irritate my scalp.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda Helping Psoriasis

Elizabeth (Tennessee ) on 01/22/2018
4 out of 5 stars

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking soda tonic promising after just 2 uses.

Summary: diabetes, alcoholism, bulemia, topped with a 10yr abusive relationship ending in a soul crushing divorce, and job struggles equals a nasty outbreak of psoraiasis. Shocked it didn't happen 10 yrs ago from all the stress.

It all started about a month ago around all *sensitive* areas, I had been crying so much it started occurring around my eyes and got so painful that there was more crying and depression while basically crying blood. Now it's under my arms, on my wrists, the palms of my hands, between my breasts, on my chin, behind my ears, shoulder, and neck. It was so dry and cracking so often.

Tried topically applying ACV diluted with a little water - it does help with the itching however not long lasting and burns like a SOB on cracked skin (of course) and when every crease by your eyelid and corners is an open wound - owww!

Coconut oil also provided temporary relief but again after 30min - 1hr I was peeling more scales off.

The unrelentlessness reached an unbearable pinnacle after spending over 8hrs tweezing off scales yesterday that reappeared within moments.

I gave up and tried the 1Tbsp ACV with 1/2tsp baking soda and a small amount of warm water and took it as a few small shots chased by gatorade.

No doubt it is completely vile and no fun, I took it in the afternoon and planned to take it again before bed but fell asleep. I was shocked upon waking up my eyes weren't glued shut from painful scales and scabs! There was a HUGE reduction in the amount of scales which I removed most of so I took another dose. Right now I can stand and sit without the crease between butt and legs tearing painfully, touch my ear without it splitting, and squinch my eyes shut without grimacing in pain for the first time in weeks.

I'm going to keep it up and see how it goes but I'm already excited after suffering from low self esteem and adding these painful, unsightly scale covered eyes and chin that can't be hidden it would be great to keep this relief and catch my breath to heal.

Also I'm a picky eater and have a terrible diet so I've added more fruits and veggies opting for grilled vs fried things. This didn't seem to have a big impact but still gonna keep trying to opt for healthier choices and cut out junk food. As for alcoholism I weaned off liquor without experiencing typical withdrawals by drinking wine and now have days that I don't drink, so cheers to self improvement.

Will update if it becomes ineffective, good luck everyone!

Pine Nuts and Blackberries for Psoriais

Canadaguy (Vancouver) on 11/07/2017
4 out of 5 stars

I wanted to let you know that my psoriasis, which I have had for about 15 years or so, has gotten better since I started doing two things. First of all, it's only about 3' by 4", which is kinda small compared to many other people. It hasn't gotten worse in that time, just moved down from my knee to my lower leg. It itched and scaled a lot. The itching went mostly away when I started eating blackberries every day. Then I bought pine nuts, and wow! The scaling went completely away too! In addition it seems some of my food sensitivities went down or away with the pine nuts. I know psoriasis is considered an auto-immune disease, and I think the pine nuts may be useful to interrupt that process for some. It definitely hasn't fixed my psoriasis, just made it less 'angry', and less thick a bit too. I think it may be the sterolins in the pine nuts and the mannose in the blackberries, as that is why I tried them. But I am not really that sure.

I used about 2$ Canadian in pine nuts a day and about 2 cups of blackberries per day also. I also avoided pasteurized milk products and wheat, but I have been doing that for a while.

Herbal Salve for Psoriasis

Marsh57 (Denver, Co) on 09/08/2017
5 out of 5 stars

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.
