how i cured my psoriasis

Postby carlbukow on Mon Jul 07, 2014 12:21 am

Hi, I was diagnosed with psoriasis 8 years ago, Since then I have tried nearly every treatment known to man (and some that aren’t), including pharmaceuticals, over-the-counter creams and alternative medicine. I’ve lost count of the meds and herbs I have taken. I’m sure they’d fill up a dictionary.

With the pharmaceutical medicines (most of which were steroids) the psoriasis would clear up briefly but would come back worse than before and at times the meds simply didn’t work at all.

Finally I got fed up from seeing little improvement and with the doctors who kept putting me on steroid meds.

That’s when I embarked on the alternative medicine journey. After trying and failing with tons of herbs, cleansing, dieting and nutritional supplements. Someone advised me to try slippery elm, kigelia extract, vitamin C and shea butter.

For slippery elm I used to take one teaspoon fully mixed in 1 cup of warm water in the morning and evening. For vitamin C I would take 2000mg 4 times a day. I noticed my skin would glow about an hour after taking it.

For shea butter I use grade A (because it’s the only grade that has anti-inflammatory properties). It’s supposed to help moisturize and diminish itchiness and in my case it seems to work. Luckily for me shea butter grade A is produced locally so it wasn’t hard to get it.

For kigelia extract I was told to get it without any irritants or unnatural chemicals and if possible without glycerin. Hunting this stuff down wasn’t easy and it’s somewhat pricey but I eventually found it online and it was worth it. I have to say I almost gave up but after 3 weeks I noticed some improvement so I pressed on and after six months I was cured!
It’s now 1 &1/2 years since then and I am still psoriasis free.

My heart goes out to anyone who is suffering from this disease; I have been there and I know the embarrassment and the discomfort people go through. For me it was trial and error till I found something that worked.

Alternative medicine is not for the faint of heart, but it’s the best approach when conventional medicine fails. My advice is to be patient because at times this stuff can take quite some time before you see results or know for sure it isn’t working. Fair warning, some of the stuff I tried had the the most unpleasant taste you’ll ever encounter and the oils smell ‘not so nice’.

So, it all comes down to how bad you want to get rid of the disease. If you’re willing to try everything there’s a good chance you’ll see results. Worst case you know one more thing doesn’t work. Sorry for the long story, I thought I should share my experience; it might be of help to someone. Thanks!

The reason psoriasis takes time to heal is that we don't understand what is the best psoriasis treatment that can help us. There are many treatments available, but generally, we had no idea what is best for us. I hope that your experience will help others, as well.
Sometimes it is essential to take some skin care treatment.
