Psoriasis is a skin disease caused by a weak immune system that affects people aged 11 to 45 years old. It is characterized by a rash with itchy, scaly patches, most commonly on the knees, elbows, trunk and scalp.
Recent research has identified the cause of psoriasis to be in the gut and not the skin. Accumulation of harmful toxins in the body for long periods of time induce the detoxifying reaction of the body to occur through the skin, thus, causing psoriasis plaques. Hence, psoriasis is the external manifestation of the body’s attempt to rid itself of internal toxins.
Although there is still no definitive cure for psoriasis, there are a number of treatments that help people manage the symptoms.
There are natural methods that can reduce the burning sensation and inflammation, therefore, significantly improving the appearance of the skin.
Acupuncture helps restore balance to the body. Thus, by bringing the body back to harmony the disease can be cured.
