Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disease that typically causes red and silver-white “patches” of excessive skin to form on the elbows, knees, lower back and scalp.
Affected areas are often itchy and sore. Scratching and picking (especially while asleep) aggravates the problem. They may also crack and bleed, rendering the area continually problematic.
It’s also important to note that, although it is a skin disease, psoriasis can target more than just the skin. Since skin overproduction typically targets joint areas (e.g. elbows, knees), a condition known as “psoriatic arthritis” can erupt. This painful condition causes inflammation of the joints. This not only hurts, but limits mobility and impinges on an individual’s quality of life. Obviously, psoriasis also affects emotional health, too. Many sufferers experience depression and lack of self-esteem due to their perception of their appearance.
Considered by many to be a “chronic condition”, many psoriasis sufferers are forced to tolerate life-long flares, and to rely on harsh, symptom-suppressing treatments that are not designed to deal with the problem at its source.
At The Centre For Integrated Health, we understand that a “whole-body approach to health” is appropriate to address a condition as layered, complex and serious as psoriasis.
We begin our treatment by identifying two key areas that often cause and “trigger” psoriasis: diet and emotional health. Based on the results of these initial evaluations, we may recommend nutritional changes and lifestyle improvements that increase emotional wellbeing. We may also recommend other treatments (inside or outside of The Centre) such as “Emotional Freedom Technique” (EFT), which is a powerful, innovative approach to dealing with embedded emotional tension that could be causing or contributing to psoriasis outbreaks; or Lymphatic Drainage treatment, which uses a “Light Beam Generator” (LBG. This treatment helps relieve lymphatic congestion, while increasing immune defense strength.
We have also identified homeopathic remedies that, when combined with the right diet, can achieve powerful, lasting results.
Susan had suffered from psoriasis for 17 years. Some of her outbreaks caused skin plaques to form, which forced her to take considerable time off work. Thus, Susan didn’t only suffer physically, emotionally and psychologically; her financial stability was affected too.
In the past, Susan had tried conventional treatments and light therapy, but with no effect. She came to our clinic following a whole body break-out of the illness that was causing her considerable physical and emotional distress; ailments that her GP could not improve.
Fortunately, Susan didn’t give up and resign herself to a life of suffering from psoriasis. Together, we helped identify the presence of parasites in Susan’s gut. We used herbal treatments to totally clear these. We also added homeopathic treatment for tissue salt imbalance. Specific skin related remedies and immune system stimulation were identified and recommended.
And the results? Within two weeks of treatment, Susan had this to say:
“I needed to get to the cause of my problem and word-of-mouth led me to Nutrivital. Following the advice and remedies prescribed I was ‘cured’ of all psoriasis. Thank you Nutrivital for showing me the way back to having a healthy 57 year old body.”
We know that psoriasis is a serious – and emotionally stressful – condition. We also know it’s more than likely that you’ve been told by your GP and other well-intentioned, qualified health professionals that there is no treatment, other than some harsh medications that can only serve to suppress symptoms.
However, as Susan’s case inspiringly shows, there are natural alternative treatment and remedy options to explore and potentially benefit from. Learning about your options is the next step to take.
Contact us today for a confidential, compassionate discussion of your psoriasis condition. We’ll carefully describe the potential treatment options open to you, and how our assessment, monitoring and treatment methods can help.
