What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is an ordinary skin disease that causes the skin to be red and irritated. The skin looks dry with silvery scales on bright red patches.

It can occur on the hands, elbows, knees, crotch, forehead, or scalp.

It does show up on different parts of the body. Psoriasis is not contagious, and is most common between 15 and 35 age groups.

What causes psoriasis

The skin renews itself every four weeks when new cells grow from underneath to replace the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.
Sometimes the process occurs in about four days causing too many new cells to find a place in the outermost layer.

These new cells will now age and die causing psoriasis on the body. You can alleviate this problem with the right home remedies for psoriasis treatment.

The root causes of this skin problem may also originate within the intestinal tracts also known as leaky gut syndrome.
The walls of the smaller intestines become thin and permeable, allowing toxic elements such as bacteria, yeast, fats, and acids to enter the blood stream in large quantities.

The toxin overload builds up poisons in the body. Attempt by the body to eliminate them through sweat glands could result in psoriasis and lesions.

Some other factors that can trigger psoriasis include little or too much sunlight, dry skin, skin injury, bacteria infections, some medicines, excess alcohol, stress, difficulty digesting protein, overgrowth of candida albicans, and hormonal changes,

For you to get a better treatment, find out from your medical attendant about the real root cause of the psoriasis ailment and apply the natural home remedies for psoriasis for treatment.

Juicing for treatment

The celery juice treatment

Celery is very good for psoriasis. It is packed full of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, sodium, calcium, vitamin A, some B Complex, magnesium and more. Great kings of England like King Henry used it to treat skin diseases.

How to juice it

Celery juice alone can be too strong for the liver so it needs to be diluted with some other vegetables.

Wash clean two stalks of celery, one cucumber, a bunch of Swiss chard and about 3 large size carrots. Juice them separately and set them aside.  Pour all the various juices in a bender and blend them together for about 30 seconds. This should yield approximately 2 cups. Drink it any moment when you are not eating food.
