PSORIASIS: Effective Natural Cures

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease, not infectious or contagious.

We analyze natural cures for psoriasis, its mechanisms and official medical



                           WHAT is the PSORIASIS

Psoriasis worsens due to stress and is found in 2-3% of people. It represent a

cardiovascular risk factor.

Psoriasis development occurs due to an overgrowth skin cells disorder. Autoimmune,

genetic and environmental factors are involved in its appearance.

Psoriasis lesions are characterized by areas of increased skin cell growth, accelerated

skin turnover (approximately 10 times compared to normal skin). There is also incomplete

maturation of keratinocytes (skin cells) and maintenance of nuclei in the outer layer of the

skin (parakeratosis).

In psoriatic lesions there is increased growth of immature lymphatic vessels, of new

blood vessels, but twisted.


                            WHAT are the CAUSES of PSORIASIS

Some substances released by cutaneous nerve endings during stress can take part in

onset or development of psoriasis. Some biochemical  mediators produced in the skin

and released by mast cells in response to stress, trauma and infections are involved. These

alter mast cells metabolism. Some cells (T lymphocytes) are activated and migrate to dermis

(deep layer of the skin). The result is release of cytokines (TNF-α, interleukins) and growth

factors (NGF) which cause inflammation and rapid cell reproduction

However, natural remedies for psoriasis reduce presence of excess biochemical mediators,

without side effects, thus repairing cellular imbalances.

There is also an increase in blood flow and appearance of serum-protein fluid secretions


                         HOW MANY KINDS of PSORIASIS are there

Several forms of psoriasis are recognized: pustular and non-pustular, plaque psoriasis

(80% of cases), guttate, inverse. It's located in elbows, knees, scalp, back, hands, feet

and genital region. Fingernails and toenails are often affected with thickening and cracks.



Official treatment is carried out with immunosuppressive drugs (methotrexate and

cyclosporine A), retinoids, biological drugs (all with several and serious side effects).


                   WHAT are the NATURAL CURES for PSORIASIS

But natural cures for Psoriasis are possible thanks to action of natural substances like

Calendula Officinalis and Rhodiola rosea. They have anti-inflammatory, soothing,

anti-free radical action, and normalizing on blood microcirculation.

   Other natural substances, like flavoproteins and coenzymes, contribute effectively and

harmlessly to the restoration of mast cell metabolism. The restoration of them cell membranes

leads to a normal release of cytokines and neuropeptides and to the rebalancing of the

immune system without side effects.
