What Causes Psoriasis?

Psoriasis: Prevalence, Symptoms, Testing and Treatment

Studies* have shown that Psoriasis is caused by food intolerance - or the inability to digest certain foods. Semi-broken down proteins - set off an immune response - disrupting cell reproduction and leading to the raised silvery white skin lesions.  These are a hallmark sign of food intolerance.

Understanding food intolerance is central to healing Psoriasis.

How common is psoriasis?

Psoriasis, a genetic skin conditon - is the most common auto-immune disease in the US.

  • Psoriasis affects around 9 million Americans and 125 million people worldwide
  • Onset is frequently during the teenage years - to mid twenties
  • One study shows psoriasis keeps people home from work or school for 26 days per year
  • If neglected - one in three sufferers will go on to develop psoriatic arthritis

Psoriasis is the result of an immune response in the body - usually caused by the presence of an 'unrecognised protein' - as in food intolerance. Psoriasis is characterised by raised itchy red patches on the skin. It can affect almost any part of the skin - but is common on the scalp, back, torso and front of the knees and the outside of the elbows.

Psoriasis sufferers can be burdened with such discomfort they may not sleep soundly, miss work or school and suffer low self-esteem. Long term consequences can include high blood pressure and depression. But new research links psoriasis to simple food intolerance - suddenly making it 'curable'.

What are the causes of Psoriasis?

Even though this is not fully appreciated by doctors - Psoriasis is commonly caused by undiagnosed and untreated Food Intolerance.

During digestion food proteins break down into smaller proteins called peptides. When these peptides are not recognised as 'friendly' by your immune system - it means you have food intolerance and are unable to fully digest that food.

Your body's immune response is always some type of inflammation or disruption of processes. For psoriasis the immune system sends out muddled signals and over-multiplication of skin cells happens - resulting in the familiar silvery white patches on the skin.

Food intolerance is responsible for dozens of inflammatory disorders including psoriasis.

How does food intolerance cause Psoriasis?

Food intolerance causes partially digested proteins (say from yeasts, casein or gluten) to get into your bloodstream. These are not recognised as 'friendly' by your immune system. Frequent responses are inflammation and/or disruption of normal processes:

  • Inflammation at the joints causes stiffness and arthritis
  • Inflammation in the lungs or nasal passages: respiratory congestion, asthma and cough
  • Inflammation in the membranes of the brain causes headache and migraine
  • Inflammation at the skin can cause hives and eczema
  • Disruption of skin cell reproduction leads to the familiar raised white skin lesions known as Psoriasis

How to cure your psoriasis?  . . . Find your food intolerance - and remove the offending food from your diet - by substituting it for other foods. Do this with a simple Journal and track your symptoms against foods eaten.

How do you test for Psoriasis?

It's really is easy to find the cause of your psoriasis: you simply use a Journal or purpose-designed Daybook to find out your Food Intolerance.

By "Switching a Few Foods" and tracking the changes in your symptoms - you pinpoint the true cause of your psoriasis. Then you have full control over psoriasis - rather than the other way around.

For this you'll need our simple Journal and food guide program.

The Power of a Journal to find Your Food Intolerance

A journal puts system into your exploration. It's easy. All you do is track your symptoms as you switch a few foods. We recommend the purpose-designed Detection Diet Journal in  the Healing Program.

You'll also need food substitution guides so you can enjoy a wide variety of great foods. The full series of six Complete Guides (to Gluten-free, Fructose-Free etc. ) is included in the Healing Program. Find out more >

You will also find that your other symptoms will diminish too - not just the Psoriasis:

"How could all those Doctors I saw not know about this?  I feel like I have wasted so many years of my life.I am so happy that I found your website, I wish I had found it sooner.  You have given me the knowledge to get on with my life and ENJOY it!! From my family and I, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH". Kindest Regards - Kate P.

"Dear Deborah, My neurological issues have reduced significantly!  This is great, since it was the category that was giving me the most grief.  I have had two to four migraines with aura per month for the last two years.  I have now gone 31 straight days without one!  That's huge!

My skin issues have diminished significantly. My musculo-skeletal symptoms have decreased to almost nothing. Thanks, Bob S.

 

Why keep using medications and topical treatments - when the problem comes from 'within'?

What is the cure for Psoriasis?

Temporary relief treatment: You can use topical treatments, medications or supplements from the pharmacy for temporary relief. Some people choose to keep using creams and lotions. Unfortunately - few doctors ever realise there could be a food sensitivity at the root of psoriasis - because food intolerance is not taught extensively in medical schools. So doctors miss a real chance to heal their patients. Unfortunately psoriasis sufferers continue to spend hundreds of dollars per year without being cured.

Permanent cure: Find the actual cause of your psoriasis (find your food intolerance) and substitute that food for other great foods. It's easy with a simple Journal program.

Why did I get Psoriasis?

Blame Your Parents! Food intolerance is Genetic

Psoriasis - like many other inflammatory and autoimmune disorders is the result of eating foods you cannot digest properly - food intolerance.

And food intolerance is genetic - it's in the genes. You got it from your parents, grandparents and other ancestors. You cannot change your genes. Therefore if you have children - you have already passed on that genetic material to your sons and daughters - and even your grandchildren.

That makes it even more important for you to be fully aware of your food intolerance, doesn't it - so you can share the precious knowledge with other family members. Doing this will allow them to make informed choices about foods - and protect their health.

I think I might have food intolerance: What should I do?

Beginning with our free e-book, we can help you establish if you are suffering from gluten or wheat intolerance or if your symptoms indicate an intolerance to dairy, fructose or yeast. You may even be suffering from more than one food intolerance.

The research indicates doing nothing can be a risk. Undiagnosed food intolerance can cause serious long-term health problems like osteoporosis, anaemia and many others. Sign up for the Free E-book 'How to Tell If You Have Food Intolerance'
