Natural Home Remedies For Psoriasis
These are the Psoriasis supplements, tools and treatments I use to heal.
Last Updated: April 2nd, 2022 (Listed in order of importance):
Psoriasis is just the tip of the iceberg. It's on the skin, but not due to a skin issue. All of the remedies I link here I use myself and they are for healing the body, which will then clear the skin. The gut, bowel, lymph and other systems need repair. Keep your blade sharp and your mind open!
- Zinc (liquid zinc sulfate) - Zinc is depleted quickly on chronic inflammation state and is necessary to healing process. It is hard to find in whole plant foods, so I supplement.
- Water Cup YETI Rambler 30 oz - Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tumbler w/MagSlider Lid - This cup is easy to clean and durable. My current Rambler has been going strong for FIVE years. With the lid on, you can drop this cup and nothing will spill.
- Magnesium (glycinate) - Magnesium is depleted quickly on chronic inflammation state and is necessary to healing process. It is hard to find in whole plant foods, so I supplement.
- Vitamin C - The detox vitamin. A constant flow of this along with water to help it absorb is a powerful change in the body. It kills pathogens and the causes of psoriasis while helping organs eliminate waste. Vitamin D you get with sunlight exposure. That is a must as well. Vitamin C is needed for proper elimination, lymph function.
- Vitamin B12 (adenosylcobalamin with methylcobalamin) - B12 is the methylation vitamin, it is used by the liver to absorb nutrients into the bloodstream. This enhances all plant foods you add to the diet. We are what we absorb. The plant and soil probiotics above also produce B12 as a byproduct.
- EPA & DHA - Omega Fatty Acids - Plant-based, it comes from algae. Do not use fish oils.
- Atlantic Dulse flakes - Sprinkle on guacamole, hummus, salads, meals. This seaweed is very good at eliminating heavy metals from the body.
- Herbal Tinctures; Cat's Claw, Lemon Balm, Nettle Leaf, and Licorice Root - That's in order of importance. Cat's Claw is most important. I like to use these alcohol-free tinctures for my herbs. I shake them well, then add a dropper or 2 each to my 32oz water cup, I put in a couple drops of zinc and fill with filtered water. I drink this down over a couple hours. You can also make herbal teas if you like. The important part is getting the FOUR herbs I list here above in your body consistently to kill the pathogens causing psoriasis.
- Chaga Mushroom powder - I add it to my smoothie, coffee and tea. You can also take in a little warmish-hot water, stir up and drink it down.
- Lion's Mane Mushroom powder - Same as Chaga. Lion's Mane helps heal the brain. You will think and feel better all day.
- Reishi Mushroom powder - Seeing a trend here? Mushrooms are working WELL for me healing my skin, and also improving my mental health, brain function, nervous system balancing.
- Mushroom Complex MyCommunity by Host Defense - Simply put, mushrooms improve and calm Immune System functions by helping eliminate bad pathogens that cause chronic mystery, inflammatory symptoms.
- Spirulina Powder - I add to my smoothie. A responsible binder and eliminator. This algae helps the body remove heavy poisons.
- Pitaya (Dragon Fruit) Powder
OTHER ITEMS TO GET:
- Castor Oil (cold pressed) | Castor Oil Organic Organic Highest Quality
- Himalayan Pink Salts for Bath- Add these to bath water and stir till dissolved. I also add Borax powder to neutralize chlorine and clean the skin.
- Organic Coconut Oil for Bath and Cooking - I add a cup to my bath water and dissolve it into warm-hot water.
- Organic Hemp Seeds
- Organic Shredded Coconut
- Organic Turmeric Powder
- Probiotics. I have taken Dr. Ohhira's Professional Formula, Saccharomyces Boulardii from Klaire Labs and Ozona Organics Psoriasis Formula both for multiple years with good results. I don't currently take them, I feel once the gut is well, gut microbes balance in the natural ecology of a quality nature-based diet and lifestyle. Read my full post on probiotics for psoriasis here. My diet is focused on supporting my own gut bacteria health which is the long-term strategy. Probiotics help you out of severe symptoms and balance the healing crisis responses you will face. They can reduce the pain and itchiness you go through while healing.
- Liquid Chlorophyll (paraben free)
- Essential Oils Diffuser - Bring healing in through aromatherapy and leave a pleasant scent all throughout your home. You add a few drops of essential oils and fill with filtered water, then turn it on for hours to clean the air, kill off mold and mildew and breathe in deep every time you walk by.
- BFB-1 Essential Oil Blend
- BfB-2 Essential Oil Blend
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Angel Juicer Pro - This is an incredible machine. It's very expensive but is in a league of it's own and will last forever. I got one as a gift, which is the only reason I have one. If you have money to spend, this is a worthy investment. I have used it for almost five years, it continues right along as new.
- Omega Masticating Juicer - An affordable slow-revolving masticating juicer. This ensures you get the most bang for your buck with the celery you buy. You get more of the life-giving enzymes and cluster salts with a masticating juicer.
- Hamilton Beach Juicer - Very affordable and durable juicer. I used this one for over 2 years, 100s of juices, never broke down.
- Nutribullet Magic Bullet Blender - Very affordable and durable blender. Very easy to clean, have a nutritious smoothie ready in 5 minutes.
- Celtic Sea Salt and Himalayan Pink Salt - dissolve a pinch in water for trace minerals or sprinkle on food.
Hemp CBD (cannabidiol) supplements & topicals heal Psoriasis:
The skin has it's own ECS (endocannabinoid system) which has receptors that are activated by cannabinoids. There are very interesting studies and trials showing the efficacy of CBD on the ECS in healing Psoriasis and other chronic skin issues. CBD benefits the nervous system and immune system directly and quickly. This brings instant relief to itching, pain, redness and reduces inflammation fast.
CBD will take a little while to activate the ECS' receptors. As this happens, I have experienced a lot of positive benefits. I have noticed MUCH less anxiety, incredible pain relief, less itching/scratching, better sleep, balanced moods, less impulsive, more relaxed, shaking in hands and feet is gone, and of course, the inflammation on my skin going way down, awesome stuff.
Quality is everything, so look for manufacturers who are cold-processing the whole plant which ensures that the CBD (cannabidiol) remedies are fully-laced with all the most beneficial cannabinoids and other compounds, including natural terpenes. It’s what they call Full Spectrum, and it’s designed to provide outstanding results. These products also contain NO or virtually no THC, which is the compound that creates the "high".
