Psoriasis: symptoms and treatment of psoriasis. Who is at risk of psoriasis? Just read few official words about Psoriasis. Psoriasis is a skin disease, the causes of which are not completely known. Psoriasis is a non-infectious and non-malignant disease that is chronic and has a tendency to remission (spontaneous regression) and relapse. There are many theories on the development of psoriasis, but none of them is 100% confirmed by scientific research. Some specialists agree with the opinion that it is an autoimmune disease, which means that for some unknown reason the body begins to attack its own tissues and destroys them. There is also a widespread belief that psoriasis is present in the family. Children of the sick have skin problems similar to those of their parents. Psoriasis affects 2-4 percent of the population, according to others it is estimated that it affects 16 people per 1000 general population in Europe and the United States, with Asia and Africa being less frequent. Psoriasis: what happens to the skin of a psoriasis patient? In the normally functioning skin, the transformation process (development, maturation and death) of the cells lasts 26-28 days. In psoriasis, the immune system sends signals that shorten the process to about 4 days. New cells ripen quickly and the old ones do not keep pilling up. That is why the skin of the ill people becomes much thicker than the healthy ones. A layer of dead cells is formed on the body in the form of hard scales. The disease usually appears between the ages of 10 and 40, but in recent years more and more people have been falling into it even after the age of 70. It is assumed that the so-called late psoriasis can be caused by taking medications, e.g. beta-blockers used to treat heart disease or preparations of lithium administered during the depression. Often, the first sowing occurs after bacterial or viral infections (eg, flu, angina, smallpox). The disease is also promoted by inflammation, for example in the teeth, sinuses, tonsils. These all information if you suffer from psoriasis you may know already. And what does non-academic medicine say about peels? All chronic and non-curable diseases are a disease of the immunological system. To try to cure such a disease, you need to heal and strengthen the immune system. How to strengthen the immune system? As some of us remember from school, it is in our intestines that most of the immune system is found. How to take care of our resilience? In order for our intestines to work properly, we must control what we eat. The correct bacterial flora plays a major role in our intestines. Nowadays, where chemistry reigns, it is very difficult. The greatest enemy of our guts flora are the various preservatives found in the products we eat. What are preservatives? Preservatives are simply germicides that destroying bacteria in food products also destroy them in our intestines. Intestines that do not function properly leading to various diseases. Psoriasis is called a disease of the immune system or intestinal disease. The reduction of consumption of preservative products is a big improvement, but this is to a great extent because the damaged bacterial flora is very slowly reviving. The next element that a person with psoriasis should avoid is any form of gluten. Gluten is a protein that is not assimilated by our body and causes intestinal leakage. Leakage of the intestines causes that proteins, parasites and bacteria that should not get out of the gut enter the blood causing short-term local inflammation. If this situation persists for a long time, it can lead to many chronic diseases. Lowering the amount of gluten consumed very often brings a small improvement which in the long term can bring relief to many chronic diseases. The self-healing process is very slow and long-lasting, and avoiding the gluten that is contained in almost all of the grains is very difficult. Preservatives mentioned in the article should also be avoided. Another product that is harmful to us is milk of animal origin and its products. The main protein of milk from the cow is Casein. Casein is the main milk protein and its content in cow's milk protein is around 75%. Casein, or cow's milk protein (100 ml of cow's milk contains up to 2.8 g, which is 3 times more than human milk and is 20 times higher than in human milk). Perhaps it is she, not lactose, who is responsible for that cow's milk should not be drunk at all ... Casein is the main milk protein and its content in cow's milk protein is around 75%. Casein is a vicious and dense substance with mucopurative properties, which appear after ingestion, in the stomach of the gut, i.e. during digestion - after drinking milk by the infant in his stomach, heavy crumbs form, just from casein. The resulting mucus impedes the absorption of nutrients by the villi of the gut (the absorption of protein from cow's milk is only 50%). Man is not adapted to its digestion (or at least not in the amounts in which it is found in cow's milk) and, although casein is a good building material, it is only for, for example, calves, but not babies. The differences between cow's milk and human milk, and therefore the reasons why cow's milk should not be given to children, I will write in a separate post. Eliminating dairy products from the diet will not cause negative side effects in addition to a withdrawal effect similar to cigarette withdrawal. In our case, after 3 weeks, the skin became smoother to the touch, the skin's appearance also improved. New psoriatic eruptions have stopped appearing and the current ones have been slowly decreasing. We stopped using ointments prescribed by a doctor Dovobet. Instead, we used the Chinese Yiganerjing ointment forbidden for sale in the UK in order to bring relief because as we know these efflorescences are itchy. We started to use the ointment before starting a diet without milk, it helped better than the ointment prescribed by the doctor Dovobet but there were new eruptions. After 2 months of a milk-free diet, small skin eruptions have completely disappeared. Only scars remained after the old skin eruptions. No new vetch. Currently, only large efflorescences are lubricated with this Chinese ointment, we also use vaseline and soap from this company. The rest of the body is lubricated with coconut oil. I hope this article will help someone. In addition to the withdrawal of milk, we eat Vitamin C around 1000mg daily (5 times 200mg), Vitamin D3, Silicon, Vitamin K2 and Vitamin and mineral complexes. English is my second language, I do apologise for any errors and I am open to comments and help with article writing.
