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 PSORIASIS
Psoriasis worsens due to stress and is found in 2-3% of people. It represent a
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
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.
HOW PSORIASIS is TREATED in the TRADITIONAL WAY
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
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.
