Healing Eczema and Psoriasis Naturally

Joanne knew it was time for a change but didn’t know where to begin. After suffering with eczema on her elbows, knees, and face for over a dozen years, she just couldn’t handle the almost constant itching any longer. Worse, she was tired of the embarrassment she felt. She said she had “tried everything.” Her story is similar to that of many eczema or psoriasis sufferers, since over fifteen percent of the population is affected by these skin conditions and drugs offer little, if any, help in most cases.

Eczema usually causes inflamed red, itchy, and dry patches of skin that sometimes blisters and weeps. Psoriasis is similar in that it also frequently occurs on the scalp, knees, and elbows, but it can occur anywhere on the body and also often shows up on the buttocks and wrists. It doesn’t usually itch, but may bleed if the red, swollen skin or silvery or whitish scales are scratched. It is caused by skin cells that replicate too quickly, usually around ten times the growth rate of normal skin cells.Most scientists and doctors are mystified by what causes the these conditions or the skin cells to replicate. Natural medicine theories include: poor diet; deficiencies in essential fatty acids and fiber; digestive difficulties, especially with protein; Candida albicans overgrowth; deficiency vitamins and essential fatty acids; or poor liver function or toxic buildup. Here’s how to help:

Detox Your Liver and Intestines
Detoxify the bowels and liver to eliminate a possible overgrowth of Candida albicans or other microbes that may be infecting the body. To do that, be sure to drink plenty of water every day (usually 10 to 12 cups) and supplement with a high quality probiotic supplement that includes: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Lactobacillus plantarum and Bifidobacteria, and Bifidobacteria bifidum. Avoid sugars and minimize fruit consumption while dealing with Candida.

Juice it Up
Drink more fresh vegetable juices. Because they are easy to digest, their nutrients are readily absorbed by the body and they encourage gentle detoxification.

Heal with Whole Foods
Eat a whole foods diet consisting primarily of vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, and grains, making sure to eat protein foods like beans, raw nuts and seeds at every meal to stabilize blood sugar levels. Avoid processed and packaged foods containing colors, flavors, and preservatives.

Go Gluten-Free
Avoid grains containing gluten, which include whole wheat, white flour, oatmeal, spelt or kamut, since gluten sensitivity is common in sufferers of eczema or psoriasis. Instead choose gluten-free grains like quinoa, brown rice, buckwheat, and amaranth.

Avoid Allergens
Dairy products, sugar, chocolate, and citrus fruits are also common culprits that should be avoided. Because alcohol often causes flare-ups, it is important to eliminate it as well

Add Skin-Soothing Aloe
In addition to being a natural and gentle colon stimulant, aloe vera juice taken internally can be helpful for healing skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis. It also helps to heal the intestines, lessening chances of reinfection from Candida or other microbes. Drink about a quarter cup of aloe vera juice, twice daily. Avoid if you are pregnant or lactating.

Get an Oil Change
Supplement your diet with increased amounts of essential fatty acids, particularly Omega 3s, which are found in wild salmon, flaxseeds and flaxseed oil, and raw walnuts. Fish oil from a pure source provides Omega 3 fatty acids along with other essential fats not found in most vegetarian sources.

Improve Your Digestion
Lessen the amount of animal protein you are eating and supplement with a full-spectrum digestive enzyme formula with every meal to aid digestion and to increase the absorption of nutrients from your meals.

Add Liver-Loving Foods
Support your liver function by eating more leafy greens, olives and olive oil, beans and legumes, garlic and onions, tomatoes, raw nuts, flax seeds and flax seed oil. Season your food with the best liver-friendly spices like cayenne pepper, cinnamon, and turmeric. Supplement periodically with the herb, milk thistle, containing 80 to 85 percent silymarin.

Help Your Cells
While most ointments or cream only mask the problem, many of my clients suffering from eczema and psoriasis have reported relief using Cellfood Gel, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the skin to promote healing.

Like Joanne found, a holistic approach to eczema or psoriasis can spell the difference between suffering and healthy skin.

If i was told that my skin will as fine, and as smooth as it is now and my health restored back to normal i will disagree with the person, This is because my skin has be badly damaged by psoriasis.
Brothers and sisters Rhoda Maxwell is my name and here is my testimony. if i don't share this with members of the public then i am doing myself no good, because i promise myself that i will share with the world if ever i get cued of this psoriasis. i have suffered psoriasis for a number of years now, and doctors were saying all sort of nonsense that it cannot be cured, that i am to remain in that condition till i die. But i have always disagreed with them because they are not the God who created me. i have always looked upon the lord because he is the author and finisher of our faith. so i kept faith in him, i continue to search for cure of psoriasis i did also in the internet but so many talking about different means of getting rid of it, i tried so many but none worked for me until i came across the testimony of a someone who was cured of a deadly disease by a herbal doctor Uwadia Amenifo. So i was surprised and i told myself that if that person can be cured of such a dreaded disease, then there is still hope for me to be cured. So i collected the contact of the herbal doctor Uwadia Amenifo and i contacted him. but he assured me that he have cured so many of psoriasis with his herbal mixture so i decided to give him a try, after counseling and all, he prepared the herbs and sen

I am suffering form psoriasis for more than ten years. Tried everything but nothing actually worked. Since Dermalmd Psoriasis serum, I decide to give a try. I apply this serum to my body twice a day for almost three weeks. Surprising, I start to feel that Dermalmd helps to reduce my redness and itchy at night. I think it would help even more if I use it for 12 weeks!

I am here to give my testimony about Dr Aleka who helped me in my life, i want to inform the public how i was cured from (PSORIASIS DISEASE) by Dr Aleka, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on PSORIASIS and i saw comment of people talking about how Dr Aleka cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony.
