In this video, we’re going to talk about the three best remedies for psoriasis. If you have psoriasis, then you don’t want to miss out on this video—I put a lot of research and energy into this topic to summarize it for you.
The word Psoriasis comes from two Greek words: psora (itchy) and iasis (action/condition).
Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition—this is where your body creates antibodies that attack your own healthy tissue. With psoriasis, certain areas of your skin are replaced every 3-5 days instead of 28-30 days. This accelerated production of skin cells is what causes the redness, scaliness, and flakiness with psoria
What’s really happening behind the curtain is a T-cell dysfunction—in particular, the TH17 cell. T-cells are part of the acquired immune system. This means you aren’t born with it, but instead, you acquire it over time.
This dysfunction of TH17 cells is typically triggered by an altered microbiome.
When these cells dysfunction, they induce a massive amount of inflammation and autoimmunity. Additionally, they release cytokines, which can also be inflammatory. At the same time, T-reg cells are suppressed.
TH17 is directly linked to vitamin D. This is why the first remedy for psoriasis is vitamin D. Take a look:
1. Vitamin D – Vitamin D helps regulate T-cells. Vitamin D acts as a hormone in the body. In particular, it acts like cortisol, which is one of the primary treatments for psoriasis. This is why psoriasis cases skyrocket in the winter—most people get less vitamin D.
2. Cod liver oil – Cod liver oil not only contains vitamin D and vitamin A, but it also has omega-3 fatty acids. Low levels of omega-3s are known to cause dry, scaly, and red skin. Omega-3 is a powerful anti-inflammatory.
3. Bile salts – Bile salts stimulate vitamin D receptors. This means that it allows vitamin D to work much better in the body.
It’s also a good idea to go on an intermittent fasting plan and avoid all gluten.
