• Psoriasis

    Were you aware that your skin is your body’s largest organ? I was surprised when I first learned that myself. If you are currently suffering with this condition then what you are looking for is the cure for psoriasis and here we will look at the causes, symptoms as well as natural cures for psoriasis.

    The key to curing psoriasis is this: You need to help your body’s natural defense system by boosting it with proper nutrition, supplementation and lifestyle habits. I believe that the root cause of psoriasis is NOT a skin malfunction. It’s actually an immune system disease. So it is obvious to me that you need to learn how to boost your immune system in order to prevent psoriasis from making your life miserable.

    After all what you really want it to be Psoriasis Free forever isn’t it?

    There are several variations of psoriasis but the most common type is chronic plaque psoriasis.

    Firstly let’s look at what causes psoriasis or things that trigger a flare-up of psoriasis; Actually the causes of psoriasis are still somewhat of a mystery but here are some thoughts on this. One thing you may not know about Psoriasis is that it is not contagious so you do not need to fear spreading it to others.

    1. Genetics – in many of the cases there is a family history of this condition.
    2. Alcohol
    3. Stress
    4. Strep Throat and other infections
    5. Obesity or being overweight
    6. Anxiety
    7. Sunburn (also lack of sunlight)
    8. Some Medications
    9. Gene Mutations
    10. Overactive T-cells
    11. Skin abrasions
    12. Low levels of calcium

    When your immune system is functioning as it should, your white blood cells produce antibodies to protect your body against foreign bodies such as bacteria and fungi. These white blood cells also produce factors that help your body to heal and to fight off these infective invaders.

    When you suffer with Psoriasis, what is happening is that some of the white blood cells, known as T-cells, have become overactive. When your T-cells become overactive they begin attacking your skin which causes your skin to multiply much faster than is normal.

    Normally our skin has a cycle of around 30 days where new cells, form, mature and then die off and the cycle begins again. With plaque Psoriasis your skin actually goes through this process much faster, as fast as going through this process in 3 -6 days instead of 30.

    Mild cases of psoriasis may be a nuisance. But more severe cases can be painful, disfiguring and disabling.

    Here are the more common psoriasis symptoms;

    1. Red patches of skin covered with silvery scales
    2. Swollen and stiff joints
    3. Dry, cracked skin that may bleed
    4. Itching, burning or soreness
    5. Thickened, pitted or ridged nails
    6. Fever
    7. Chills
    8. Conjunctivitis

    There are several types of psoriasis; These include:

    Plaque psoriasis – This is the most common form of psoriasis. Plaque psoriasis causes dry, raised, red skin lesions (plaques) covered with silvery scales. These plaques itch or may be painful and can occur anywhere on your body, including your genitals and your gums. You may have just a few plaques or many, and in severe cases, the skin around your joints may also crack and bleed.

    Scalp psoriasis – Psoriasis on the scalp appears as red, itchy areas with silvery-white scales. You may notice flakes of dead skin in your hair or on your shoulders, especially after scratching your scalp.

    Nail psoriasis – You may find that you have psoriasis in your fingernails and/or toenails. It causes pitting, discoloration of your nails as well as abnormal growth. Your nails may become loose and separate from your fingers or toes.

    Inverse psoriasis – this type of psoriasis mainly affects your armpits, under the breasts, groin area and around your genitals. With inverse psoriasis you will have smooth patches of red, inflamed skin. People who are overweight or obese tend to suffer with this type of psoriasis more than others. Sweating and friction worsen the condition.

    Guttate psoriasis – this form of psoriasis is usually triggered by something like strep throat which is seen more in younger people.

    Pustular psoriasis – just the name alone sounds gross. This is an uncommon form of psoriasis that can occur in widespread patches (generalized pustular psoriasis) or in smaller areas on your hands, feet or fingertips. It generally develops quickly, with pus-filled blisters appearing just hours after your skin becomes red and tender. The blisters dry within a day or two but may reappear every few days or weeks. Generalized pustular psoriasis can also cause fever, chills, severe itching and fatigue.

    Erythrodermic psoriasis – while this is the least common type of psoriasis, erythrodermic psoriasis can cover your entire body with a red, peeling rash that can itch or burn intensely. It is triggered by a severe sunburn, by corticosteroids and other medications, or by another type of psoriasis that’s poorly controlled.

    Psoriatic arthritis – In addition to inflamed, scaly skin, psoriatic arthritis causes pitted, discolored nails and the swollen, painful joints that are typical of arthritis. It can also lead to inflammatory eye conditions such as conjunctivitis. Symptoms range from mild to severe. Although the disease usually isn’t as crippling as other forms of arthritis, it can cause stiffness and progressive joint damage that in the most serious cases may lead to permanent deformity.
