After releasing my hormonal acne e-book, I have been getting plenty of emails on how to naturally treat other skin conditions like psoriasis.
It is important to know that when you have psoriasis, it is not so much a hormonal issue – but an immune issue, meaning your immune system is overactive.
When your immune system is overactive, you have more inflammation throughout the body – for psoriasis suffers, this results in patches on the skin.
While certain baths or moisturizers may ease some of the symptoms, they do not target the internal issue.
How can you treat psoriasis naturally?
I personally suggest an anti-inflammatory diet and addressing the underlying cause of the condition.
An anti-inflammatory diet basically means that you want to avoid/minimize certain foods that cause inflammation and consume foods that work to fight inflammation.
Conventional treatments for psoriasis are actually corticosteroids (which work to suppress the immune system in order to reduce inflammation). The issue I have with this is that these medications also weaken the immune system and the body’s ability to combat infection.
To improve any autoimmune condition, I truly believe you must determine what triggered the immune reaction in the first place.
If you are looking for a guide to follow, I highly recommend “The Hormone Reboot – Immune Strengthening” in the guide section of my website.
