Psoriasis causes and solutions.
Psoriasis causes are not randomly hereditary. Here's why. My husband and I were blessed with a perfectly healthy daughter. When she started school and became exposed to typical environmental bacteria and viruses, she caught strep throat (streptococcal pharyngitis). Her pediatrician prescribed
They worked quickly and fit seamlessly into our life. The subsequent viruses that she caught were resistant to the antibiotics and her tonsils and adenoids became so enlarged that her airway was compromised. Antibiotics were prescribed and administered simultaneously in order to prevent re-infection. Her pediatrician said that her tonsils and adenoids had to come out.
Psoriasis causes linked to hereditary:
Not long after my daughter's tonsillectomy, she developed a severe, itchy skin rash. I figured that she inherited my husband's skin because he seemed to always have dandruff or a dry, itchy scalp (as he would call it). Then I started to see that my daughter and me shared a lot of similarities. When I had been her age, I remember having
a lot, being on antibiotics (tetracycline) a lot, and eventually, just like my daughter, having my tonsils and adenoids removed. At seven years old I developed really, really, bad allergies. I became convinced that there was some thing that my husband, daughter, and I all had in common, which was causing our prolonged skin irritations. I began trying different things, but much to my despair my daughter only got worse.
Meanwhile, my daughter’s pediatrician diagnosed her with eczema, but none of the treatments worked. She recommended we take her to an allergy specialist. That made the most sense to me, but the specialist we saw declined to do testing and sent us home with a prescription for a topical cream that he claimed helped millions of eczema sufferers. As you can guess, there was absolutely no relief whatsoever. Our pediatrician then recommended a dermatologist. This young doctor, with young children of her own, seemed determined to help us. She diagnosed my daughter with psoriasis and not eczema. She was willing to work with us when we explained that the treatments used thus far had only caused her condition to worsen. Then came the big let-down. Just like the others before her, she wrote prescription after prescription for this that and the other. You know, steroidal creams, anti-itch lotions...blah, blah, blah. I began reading everything about psoriasis causes, leaving no page unturned.
Each and every night we tried to soothe my daughter's discomfort, and each night she cried herself to sleep. I slept by her side and tickled her back with my nails, praying for help. My husband, thank God, decided it was time to take her to see his Chinese practitioner. This was the beginning of the end of my daughter's suffering as we grew to know it.
The Chinese doctor gave her this horrible herbal tea concoction that I had to literally force her to drink in order to
her body. When I say force-I mean force. Once, I put her outside the house and closed the door to scare her into drinking the tea before the boogeyman got her. It worked. Feeling guilty, I pretty much left the tea drinking to my husband because he is able to talk my daughter into anything. It seemed like in no time at all, her psoriasis began to ease up. Then one day, about two months into tea drinking and
(to keep the dermatologist from threatening to call Child Protective Services), her open, pus-filled, scaly, wounds disappeared. They were gone.
Peace had been restored to our household. This traumatic event in our lives sent me on a crusade, which I've been on ever since. I do not pretend to know it all, nor do I recommend any of the treatments that I mention. I do hope that you can get what you came here for, my experience, strength, and hope that led me to a natural psoriasis solution.
Real psoriasis causes:
I believe the single most contributing cause of psoriasis and of most modern disease is the body's inability to keep up with the insurmountable
it is exposed to as it is constantly being compromised by modern Western medicine. Read this again, and again, and again. Process this and digest it. Use it to make the best common sense choices to positively affect the health for you and your family. No matter what ails you today whether it is ADHD, autism, cancer, diabetes, fibromyalgia, or psoriasis you can start now to take back control of your health and well being.
According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, Copyright 2008, psoriasis causes can include emotional stress, injury to the skin, some types of
and reactions to certain
Stress can cause psoriasis to flare for the first time or aggravate existing psoriasis. Psoriasis can also be triggered in areas of the skin that have been injured or traumatized...Other psoriasis causes may include weather, diet and allergies. Triggers will vary from person to person and what may cause one person's psoriasis to flare may produce no reaction in another individual.
