Lipids are connected with psoriasis. Being a physician, I have seen hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol) patients with psoriasis are cured miraculously by cholesterol lowering drugs (statin drugs). This is not the case for many, but a few patients are cured by only statin drugs. But dermatologists ignore this fact, because the efficacy is still controversial. But if you search [statin psoriasis], you find a lot of interesting articles, for example ;
Of course some articles are negative. But I think it is worth trying. I am generally against statin drugs for lowering cholesterol (http://en.drmakise.com/cholesterol/). But for psoriasis, it should be tried. Especially Simvastatin, marketed under the trade name Zocor, seems to be effective.
Iron metabolism is connected with psoriasis. Because when anemia patients with psoriasis take iron supplements, their psoriasis almost always worsens. When psoriasis patients get phlebotomy (blood letting) the symptoms get alleviated. Blood --- red blood contains iron. Please refrain from taking unnecessary iron supplement, if you can do without it. And please don't take too much vitamin C supplement that accelerates the absorption of iron at the intestine.
It is important not to forget that the intestine is the body's largest immune system organ. Many hair-like villi occupy the small intestine, with Peyer's patches and their patchwork-like structure between them. Peyer's patches are a collection of lymph follicles, major players in controlling the immune system. Also, the epithelium in the small intestine contains 1 lymphocyte for every 5 to 6 epithelial cells, and accounts for 60% of all immune system cells in the human body. In addition, a Japanese researcher recently discovered lymphoid tissues containing undifferentiated lymphocytes called cryopatches. These cryopatches house lymphoid precursor cells that become intraepithelial T lymphoctyes with their central role in cell-mediated immunity. It is easy to see how important it is to maintain intestinal health to effectively treat skin disorders such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis.
By virtue of its massive surface area, the intestines are linked to the brain, so much so, that the intestines are called the second brain. They are typically 6 to 7 meters (19 to 23 feet) long in adults. The intestines are composed of almost 100 million nerve cells, constituting 50% of all nerve cells in the body aside from those in the brain. Together, the brain and intestines control emotions, stress, and sleep. Consequently, the severe symptoms of psoriasis that are caused by extreme stress and anxiety can only resolve by ensuring that the intestines are patent and functioning well. Although the constraints of space will not allow a lengthy description of how the brain and intestines function together, one notable example of their importance is that strabismus (when the eyes are not aligned with each other and move quickly back and forth) was cured after conditioning the intestines with good intestinal bacteria.
We use a preparation called Bio-Three. This is the trade name of a probiotic product, which contains three active strains of host-friendly bacteria, E.faecalis T-110, C.butyricum TO-A, and B.mesentericus TO-A. Research results have shown that the combination of these three bacteria provides optimal synergistic effects. For more details, please open http://www.bio-three.com/ which is the website of the company that makes this preparation. But you may not able to get it in your country. If so, please try to find any effective probiotics for you by the Internet. You may have to try 3 or 4 probiotics till you can find the best one for your intestine.
Also, try to eat one apple a day. Apple pectin is a good dietary fiber for conditioning the intestines.
Mainstream medicine (medicine taught in a university) is not a proponent of a treatment that is critical to maintaining wellness --- detoxification. Great traditional systems of medicine, including classical Chinese, Ayurvedic and Tibetan medicine all believe that before therapeutic medicines are given to patients, the poisonous substances that build up in the body over time should first be detoxified. In contrast, modern medicine, now and in the past, prescribes medicines to patients with no prior detoxification. In fact, it isn’t really a concern to mainstream doctors, a glaring omission in Chinese, Ayurvedic and Tibetan standard medical practices, known in the West as the standard of care.
Detoxification is essential for treating psoriasis, as well as many other conditions. It is first necessary to eliminate substances that actually help cause psoriasis. These include heavy metals, toxic chemicals, artificial food additives, remnants of medicines, viruses, bacteria, and others. One of the best ways to detoxify is being in a sauna, especially one using Far Infrared rays. These toxic substances are eliminated in sweat from apocrine and eccrine glands. However, one should not take saunas more than three times a week.
Bbloodletting (phlebotomy) is also very effective for detoxification. Please open http://en.drmakise.com/shaketsu/ A warning, which may seem obvious, but should be mentioned anyway, is never to undertake phlebotomy on your own. The procedure should only be done by experienced health professionals in accordance with the particular best practices utilized in each country.
UV light, or sunlight, is very effective for treating psoriasis. Solar UV light stimulates the production of vitamin D. 7－dehydrocholesterol (a cholesterol precursor) is found in food and absorbed in the small intestine, where it is converted to vitamin D3 in the skin. In the liver, it is converted to 25 －hydroxyvitamin D3, and is metabolized to 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol in the kidney. The latter form of vitamin D3 is most important. Vitamin D3 reduces the overproduction of skin cells that causes scaling, a precursor to skin cancer in some cases. Sunbathing standing by the window is not effective; being outside with the natural rays of the sun is best. It may take several weeks to see an improvement in your psoriatic lesions. Some people travel even to a tropical zone, an approach well worth trying.
UV light is used as UV blood irradiation therapy, today more commonly called photoluminescence. Blood is drawn from a patient, irradiated, and then injected back into the patient via autotransfusion. This technique has been used to alleviate many diseases, including psoriasis. The treatment is safe and free from adverse side effects. Photoluminescence Therapy (also called Biophotonic Therapy), was first used by Kurt Naswitis in 1922, irradiating blood directly via a shunt. In the 1920s Emmet Knott developed a precursor to the machinery we use today allowing blood could to be irradiated outside the body. He received his patent on September 11, 1928, the same year that he irradiated blood from the first human subject.
Please go to bed till 11 pm at latest. The best is till 9 or 10 pm. If you go to bed later than 12 am, your psoriasis will be never cured. Because from 12 am to 2 am, growth hormone is secreted even if your are 80 years old. Growth hormone cures the skin problem and it does other many beneficial jobs for the human body. If you don't sleep between 12 am to 2 am, growth hormone is not well secreted and your skin remains damaged.
You know well human growth hormone is touted very much as Anti-Aging supplement. Some Anti-Aging clinics offer injections of growth hormone. But you don't need the supplement or injection. Just go to bed earlier. That's enough. But no doctors tell the truth. If you cannot fall asleep when you go to bed at 10 pm, you don't need to worry about "not being able to fall asleep". Just laying your body is enough. Or take melatonin 30 minutes before bed time. If you have many works to do, you can do them early morning. You can get up 4 or 5 am in the morning, and do the works.
To become a monk of Zen Buddhism and also other sections of Buddhism, young people need very hard training and ascetic practice for a few months or one year. Time of sleeping is only 4 hours. But they go to bed at 11 pm and get up 3 am. They sleep during the most important time for keeping health. Traditionally they know the most important time for the physiology of the human body.
With the skin symptoms of psoriasis, If you feel joint pain or stiffness and swelling, please go to a doctor first. Because it might be "Psoriatic Arthritis", and you may have to take immunosuppressant such as "Methotrexate" immediately to avoid deformation of joints.
