Natural Cures for Psoriasis

Have you had trouble finding natural cures for psoriasis that work? If so, it’s probably because psoriasis is more than just a skin condition. It’s a symptom of your whole health picture and your stress level.

When you use drugs and topical remedies, you will get temporary relief. But if you want to rid yourself of this painful and embarrassing skin problem, you need to address the underlying triggers.

That’s what natural cures for psoriasis do and why they’re so potent.

What causes psoriasis?

The medical opinion is that the cause of psoriasis is not known or understood.

What that means is that it doesn’t fit neatly into any medical categories. Psoriasis is not entirely genetic or immune-mediated and it doesn’t always respond to pharmaceutical skin treatments.

But that doesn't bother natural health practitioners because they don't just look at your skin; they treat psoriasis holistically.

Here’s the big picture…

Even though your skin is on the outside of your body, it is powerfully affected by what goes on INSIDE you.

Psoriasis is auto-immune and inflammatory. While the genetic evidence for it is inconclusive, researchers do know that it is linked to other auto-immune problems including…

  • celiac disease
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • alopecia areata
  • scleroderma
  • lupus erythematosis
  • Sjogren-Larsson syndrome

Clues to natural cures for psoriasis

This auto-immune connection offers huge clues about the most effective types of natural cures for psoriasis.


Because all of these health issues are linked to...

Dr. James LaValle also points out that…

“If you have chronic skin problems…such as eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis, more than likely your detoxification processes are impaired. If the kidneys and liver are not eliminating toxins, the body tries to shove them out through the skin…”  (Cracking the Metabolic Code, p. 151)

So all of that needs to be fixed.


With natural cures for psoriasis that include…

  1. Natural COX-2 inhibitors to combat inflammation. COX-2 is an enzyme that worsens inflammation. The medical form of COX-2 inhibitors are NSAIDs or Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs, whose side effects include ulcers, holes in stomach or intestines, stomach pain, headaches, dizziness, and kidney, liver or heart failure.
  2. Anti-inflammatory foods and habits
  3. Detoxifiers for liver, kidneys, digestive system, and lymph
  4. Boosting gut flora and healing leaky gut

Knowing this, you can design your own healing program for psoriasis because...

  • Once you take steps to reverse inflammation, and
  • You avoid chemical poisons and harmful foods, while you get your body working to expel toxins, and
  • You heal your gut…

...there’s no good reason for psoriasis to continue.

Except one…

Dr. John Sarno has found that psoriasis is very often linked to emotional stress.

He calls psoriasis a psychogenic condition, which means it originates in the mind. Before you get all offended and think that he’s telling you that you’re just imagining your problem – he is NOT!

Dr. Sarno has helped thousands of patients heal by teaching them to recognize the powerful effect of the mind on physical health. Sarno's point is that you can learn to use this effect consciously - to heal - when your subconscious creates an unwanted chronic condition like psoriasis.

Negative emotions wreak havoc on your body and stress increases inflammation, as Dr. Dawson Church points out in his fascinating book, The Genie in Your Genes. So they worsen skin issues.

While Church and Sarno agree that you need medical attention for acute trauma like a broken leg or burst appendix, they believe that the best natural cures for psoriasis and other chronic complaints include a good mind-body technique. Neutralizing stress and "unacceptable" emotions can clear your physical symptoms.

EFT Tapping is one of the proven
natural cures for psoriasis

The easiest and most effective way I’ve found to reduce disease-causing stress is EFT Tapping. Dr. Church cites research studies where patients with psoriasis improve with EFT Tapping.

One of the enormous benefits of EFT Tapping for psoriasis is… you can use it to calm the anxiety and embarrassment many sufferers feel about the unsightliness and discomfort of this condition.

Neutralizing those negative emotions will give you more peace of mind about your skin while you work on healing it.

As well as reducing your emotional triggers, EFT soothes the physical symptoms and pain of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
