Natural Cures For Psoriasis
If you suffer from psoriasis you will know the misery it can cause. In this post I am going to provide natural cures for psoriasis which will help you alleviate the symptoms as well as stopping flare ups happening in the first place.
Causes Of Psoriasis
The initial cause of psoriasis is still unknown to science today and this simple fact is enough to convince me that drug companies do not have the best cures for this condition. It is thought that over 30% of sufferers get this condition passed down through the genetic make-up from their parents.
Skin Generation Takes 30 Days
To explain a little more about psoriasis and how it appears on the skin we need to see how our bodies work normally. The normal process for the skin is a complete change of skin cells over a 28-30 day period. This process starts deep down in the skin and is a continuing process.
People that suffer from psoriasis this process is in an accelerated to 3-4 days. This leaves dead cells on the skin which is the redness associated with this condition. Now you understand how the process works we need to address the cures for this condition.
Main Causes Of Psoriasis Flare Ups
The main causes of flare up’s vary but below is a list of what I believe to be causes.
Stress – This can aggravate existing psoriasis and cause flare ups as well, try relaxing techniques what are used in meditation.
Infections – If you suffer any infection that effect’s the ability of the immune system to work properly can cause flare ups.
Skin been injured – Anything that damages the skin can cause the condition to appear. These include sun burn, vaccinations and cuts or scratches to the skin can all cause a reaction leading to psoriasis.
Bad diet – This one area has a huge impact on the amount you suffer from this disease. You should aim for a diet that is high in fruit and veg that are coloured like the colours in the rainbow. Meats should be a lean cut and poultry should have its skin removed.
Foods to avoid – No Trans fats what are associated with processed food and fast food, these Trans fats will cause inflammation which will trigger an attack. Also you may be surprised to learn that tomatoes, potatoes and red chillies also aggravate this condition.
Gluten – This should be avoided as it will cause psoriasis to appear, gluten is in pasta, bread, ice cream and a whole host of other products. To follow a gluten free diet you should always read the labels of products as manufacturer’s change ingredients quite often. You should stick to this diet for at least 3 months to see the results.
Alcohol – This should be avoided as much as possible as alcohol will affect the immune system and other negative effects can cause an outbreak.
Refined sugar – This should be cut down to a minimum.
What follows is a list of methods that should be used to stop psoriasis from appearing in the first place.
Stop Psoriasis Using These Methods
Try to get your weight down to a healthy level as this will help to improve the overall health and well-being of the body. Also fish should be eaten at least 3 times a week; these fish need to contain omega 3 fatty oils which are very beneficial to stopping out breaks.

All colourful fruit and veg that are in the colours of the rainbow as a guide should be consumed daily. These wonderful natural foods are exactly what you need to be consuming to battle this skin condition.
Flax seeds, walnuts, pumpkins seed, carrots and strawberries are excellent to eat as well.
