If your skin dry, painful scabs shows, red, accompanied by itching, you may have Psoriasis. It is an autoimmune disease that results in the formation of red tiles on the surface of the skin, unpleasant and uncomfortable.
No known cure to heal Psoriasis appears and disappears in cycles along with the life, manifesting through skin rashes that occur when immunity is low or when the stress level is very high — estimated that Psoriasis affects about 3% of the population of the West-that over 5 million adults.
Usually, doctors prescribe medicines and creams, which will improve the appearance of the skin, but they don’t solve the real cause of these autoimmune conditions.
Psoriasis makes skin cells to multiply in a very fast-paced, just under the skin, sometimes even 100 times faster than average.
This makes a large number of cells to reach the skin surface before their full maturation, and die (as do all skin cells at the right time), leaving behind a prominent red, covered with a crust of dry skin, silver, or white.
Experts still do not know the method by which to stop repeating this cycle, but studies show that enhancing immunity and gentle skincare with natural ingredients and relieves symptoms.
We have a life to manage stress every day. For example, studies show that 80% of those presenting recent eruptions manifests Psoriasis an emotional trauma.
Because Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder, you have made some changes in lifestyle and adopted some remedies to improve the condition significantly, especially if the autoimmune disease has become so severe that the manifest and other symptoms, such as pain and fatigue.
The symptoms of Psoriasis
Psoriasis in plaques is the most common manifestation of this disease but may take other forms.
All causes discomfort to the skin in one way or another, though when symptoms appear first, and in parts of the body which manifest themselves, they depend on the form it takes in Psoriasis.
Symptoms are more noticeable on the skin of the elbow, knees, and scalp. More rarely, they occur in the stomach, and of the back, of the hands and feet. There are several forms of Psoriasis, all having their symptoms:
Psoriasis in plaques (the most common): produces red, scaly skin covered with dry skin. By comparison with other forms of Psoriasis, Psoriasis in plaques appears even when a person has not previously suffered any disease or any symptom of the autoimmune disorder.
Psoriasis of the scalp or nails: affects the nails and head, causing dryness and breakage of nails. Natural causes of Psoriasis: psoriasis symptoms milder and may be confused with eczema or dandruff.
This type of Psoriasis is more receptive to natural remedies.
‘Severe’ Psoriasis: the term usually is used to indicate a severe form of Psoriasis, such as pustular Psoriasis: pustular and
Guttate Psoriasis forms blisters filled with pus in the skin, typically painful.
Inverted Psoriasis: shiny lesions occurring in areas where there are folds of skin (underarm, groin area and breasts)
Erythrodermic: crusts of skin fall into red “waves,” leaving skin exposed to sunburn or infection if not adequately protected or treated. This form occurs, usually as a reaction after the interruption of medicines for Psoriasis.
Guttate Psoriasis is common in children and teens. Manifest themselves in the form of small red bumps or spots which appear amid a low immune function, stress, or infection, like strep infection or tonsillitis.
The most common symptoms of Psoriasis, especially in people with Psoriasis in plaques, are:
Red skin, sometimes covered with a crust of dry skin and white or silver
Skin that falls off or touch-sensitive lesions
Itching and painful cracked skin.
Dandruff and washed-out, bleeding and discoloration of the fingers and bruises accessible to thumbnail or thumb

Guttate Psoriasis may also have other symptoms, such as pain and inflammations of the joints — most common in the case of psoriatic arthritis, affects between 10% and 30% of people who suffer from any form of Scrubs and Psoriasis
Severe pain in your hands or feet- more common in the case of Psoriasis pustular.
A damaged immune function- psoriasis can help return some infections, skin damage, and slows healing.
Fatigue symptoms specific to other autoimmune diseases, such as digestive problems, mental fog, and allergies.
How to treat psoriasis symptoms in natural
1. An anti-inflammatory diet
Symptoms of Psoriasis can improve with a healthy and nutritious diet. Among the most indicated that food contributes to relieve symptoms and decrease autoimmune reactions include:
Probiotics raw fermented: Dairy (yogurt, yogurt) and fermented vegetables which help digestion, reduce inflammation, and stimulates immunity.
Foods high in fiber: fibers are present in almost all foods rich in nutrients and antioxidants, fruits and vegetables, legumes and seeds germ or nuts.
Over wild salmon, mackerel, sardines, halibut are a few examples of more than abundant in omega 3, effects anti-inflammatory foods rich in zinc: Zinc is essential for skin health.
Zinc is present in pumpkin seeds, seeds, and legumes.
Vitamin D rich foods and vegetables and fruit: healthy, colorful fruit berries, broccoli, and green leafy vegetables are the best sources of vitamin a. Studies show that vitamin A is essential for the healing of the skin and acts as an antioxidant that reduces inflammation.
Vitamin D affects the immune system and skin cells positively. In nutrition, vitamin D found in eggs from chickens raised on the ground, raw milk, and some mushrooms.
On the other hand, some foods can aggravate the symptoms of Psoriasis and autoimmune reactions that accentuates:
Known Allergens: milk products from cows reared in industrial farms, and gluten sensitivities may give birth to some food. They can trigger a state of inflammation in the body of people with Psoriasis who have trouble digesting casein A1, a protein present in cow’s milk.
As an alternative, you can consume fermented products from milk (kefir or yogurt) or cow’s milk contains casein A2. Instead of foods with gluten (containing wheat, barley, rye), they can consume gluten, grain ancient as oats, buckwheat, amaranth, and quinoa.
Products of meat from animals reared in industrial farms: they contain few nutrients and many with omega six fats, which increase inflammation.
Hydrogenated oils and Prajelile: They are difficult to digest and are too rich in fats with omega 6.
2. Medicinal herbs and supplements
Here are some natural remedies that can relieve the symptoms of Psoriasis:
Hydrochloric Acid (1-3 capsules at the table): help in the digestion of proteins and reduces Cutaneous eruption of fish oil with omega 3 (1,000-2,000 gr per day): minimize inflammation.
Vitamin D3 (5,000 IU per day):
low levels of vitamin D and vitamin D deficiency are associated with psoriasis milk thistle (250 mg three times a day): helps to detoxify the liver and reduces cell growth (50 billion Probiotic units per day): decrease autoimmune reactions and improve the beneficial bacteria from the stomach, which can keep harmful bacteria in check
Adaptogens and vitamin B12: helps the body cope with stress better effects of digestive enzymes: stimulates the absorption of nutrients and reduce food sensibilities,
3. Exposure to the Sun for at least 20 minutes a day
Sun Exposure for at least 20 minutes, three or four days a week, relieves the symptoms of Psoriasis due to the increase of vitamin d. Vitamin D studies show that changes in the way cells grow and can slow the production of skin cells, reducing, therefore, and plate.
Exposure would lead to a decrease in skin flaking and thickening
. Vitamin D affects positively and how does the immune system and can reduce inflammation or autoimmune reactions. People with Psoriasis should keep away from the intense sun, especially if you are at the end of treatment or in the event of an eruption.
Recommended to use a sun protection cream with SPF 30 or higher, or that sun exposure to make between it is not very strong, such as between 10:00-14:00.
4. Reduce stress
Both mental stress and emotions can trigger or aggravate the symptoms of Psoriasis.
Relaxation techniques and stress management often give outstanding results, which should not surprise if we take into account that Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition.
Autoimmune diseases are often aggravated by stress due to how the answer to “fight or flee” of the body influences the immune system, releasing inflammatory proteins called Cytokines and contributing to hormonal imbalances.
Many studies have found that a majority of patients suffering from intense emotional experiences are suffering from a disease or an ailment, which does not only emphasize the State of stress and to give birth to a vicious cycle.
As mentioned previously, most of those who have Psoriasis have traumatic experiences reported just before the onset of symptoms.
Stress elimination techniques (reading, meditation, prayer, and time spent in nature) helps decrease inflammation and thus can keep symptoms of the disease under control.
5. Moisturize the skin
Using essential oils and soothing the symptoms of Psoriasis are aggravated by dry and inflamed skin.
Skin moisturizing and anti-inflammatory natural oils can improve the symptoms of pain, redness, and flaking. Depending on the place itching
and flaking skin, moisturize with the help of shampoo, lotions, gels, foams of al, and almost fats of ointments.
You can use shea butter, vaseline, almond oil, or extra-virgin olive oil. These applied after a hot shower (not too hot), but I won’t use too much fat before exercise or during the warm months, because sweat combined with greasy sunscreen can worsen the symptoms of Psoriasis.
Essential oils, such as lavender, geranium, and incense, tea tree, can soothe inflamed skin and helps in the healing process.
Before using essential oils, to do a sensitivity test to avoid adverse reactions. Essential oils are used in small quantities, because they are very concentrated and never be applied directly to the skin, but also through another neutral oil or cream. Mix three drops of lavender oil and three drops of oil incense with a spoonful of coconut oil and rub the affected area 1-3 times a day.
The difference between Psoriasis and eczema psoriasis is easily confused with other skin conditions, including eczema, which has similar symptoms or rosacea.
Eczema causes, like Psoriasis, dry or cracked skin, inflamed. How do we tell the difference between them? First of all, by locating disease: Psoriasis is more visible on the knees and elbows, while eczema occurs in sensitive areas, like behind the knees, hands, cheeks, or the beard and the inside bend.
Eczema causes usually itch, while Psoriasis causes pain and peeling skin, besides the skin-specific motherboards.
Another element that distinguishes the eczema psoriasis is that it makes your skin moist eczema, causing suppuration, thick and scaly rashes, painful cystic acne, or similar. Psoriasis does not cause such blisters and leaves the skin very dry.
Both diseases are hereditary, although their causes are quite different.
Eczema occurs at an early age, in the first years of life, while Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that occurs mainly in adults with weak immunity, which it recovers after an illness or are affected by stress.
There is a link between immune function and Psoriasis — for example, respiratory infections, diabetes, and arthritis may contribute to its onset.
Even if eczema caused by inflammation and sensitivity, it is triggered more by external factors like sunburn or skin reactions to products (soaps, detergents, lotions, etc.).
