What Causes Psoriasis?

Psoriasis: Prevalence, Symptoms, Testing and Treatment



Studies* have shown that psoriasis is caused by food toxins. 

Certain proteins - set off an immune response - disrupting cell reproduction and leading to the raised silvery white skin lesions. 

These lesions are a hallmark sign of poisoning via food toxins.

Understanding the impact of food toxins is central to healing your 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 which affects the ability to walk and move.

Psoriasis is the result of an immune response in the body - usually caused by the presence of food toxins - 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.

However new research links psoriasis to simple food toxins - making it 'curable'... with a simple LOW-TOXIN DIET.

What are the causes of Psoriasis?

Even though this is not fully appreciated by doctors - Psoriasis is commonly caused by FOOD TOXINS.

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 are unable to fully digest that food. Som it roams around in the body causing mischief. 

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 like psoriasis.

How does food intolerance cause Psoriasis?

Food intolerance means toxins (say from yeasts, casein or gluten) are released 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

'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.'


What is the cure for Psoriasis?

Temporary relief treatment: You can use topical treatments, medications or supplements from the pharmacy for temporary relief. But you will need to keep using them for life - and it will never heal. 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: Avoid the actual cause of your psoriasis (food toxins) and substitute those food for other safer choices. 

The power of a Journal 

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 Proving Journal in the foodintol® LoTox Living program.



Why did I get Psoriasis?

Blame Your Parents! Poor responses to food toxins are genetic

Psoriasis - like many other inflammatory and autoimmune disorders is the result of consuming foods which contain toxins.

This response 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 food toxins, 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.
