The Do List is a long list of things to do to remedy psoriasis away naturally.
Most of these remedies on “The Do List” were learned from different sources and tested by me. Years of time and experience went to the finding of different ways and techniques that are used to cure psoriasis. Many books have been opened, and dozens of people who have cured their psoriasis have contributed their wisdom and knowledge on top of that.
This is the list of items and tasks that will remedy psoriasis naturally and therefore cure psoriasis. It will also help you maintain beautiful skin thereof. It is imperative that these items and tasks are carried out indefinitely. It is also very important that you read the other posts on this website.
All of these remedies will help the body heal itself over time. Read any cure psoriasis literature or listen to any post psoriasis patient testimony that has cleared his or her skin 100%, and they will tell you that the healing process takes time. ?
How much time it takes totally depends on the individual. It can take anywhere from three months to nine months, more/less. This is a disorder that the body itself has to face, fight, and win against, similar to facing a schoolyard bully for the good of everything that matters.
This website will arm you with armor and weapons to face it. Everybody is different, but plenty of personal time to be spent on this dilemma is what each individual person shares in common.
The time dedicated and invested is totally worth it so who cares about how long it takes. Months of work in exchange for the rest of your life back, sounds like a good deal to me. Let’s start the process of getting your skin and life back.
#1: Sunlight Has Been Known to Cure Psoriasis
– I bask in the sunlight several days a week, five to fifteen minutes a day, at least twice a day, not between the hours of 11:00 A.M and
Too much sun light of course is bad for the skin, sun burn and skin cancer are some examples. But if applied sparingly, sunlight does
Sunlight enables the body to create vitamin D, which not only helps with calcium absorption into the bones but plays a major role in overall skin health.
Vitamin D brings skin rejuvenation and repair. Adequate amounts can bring beauty and longevity as well as skin immune health.
Vitamin D goes through biochemical reactions turning it into calcitrial, an active vitamin D hormone that starts in the epidermis and
makes its way past the phosphor lipid membranes and into the nucleus. Once it settles in the nucleus it binds with vitamin D receptors giving the skin optimal immune health with more of a youthful appearance.
Hospitals know that “ultraviolet light is so effective for many with psoriasis” that they established UV Phototherapy centers to compete with the sun itself. These places exist in dermatology departments and use
different levels of sunlight like UVB (ultraviolet B) a short wave light, and PUVA (psoralen with ultraviolet A) a long wave light.
These places say to ask your dermatologist on what treatment is right for you but there is much discretion about using these phototherapy facilities. Personally, I would rather just go outside for a few minutes, do a
salute to the sun, and cure psoriasis that way.
Places to get Sunlight
– The Beach
– The Park
– The Backyard
– On Top of a Roof
– Going for a Walk
– Tanning Booth
– The Swimming Pool
– Middle of a Grass Field
Although many places offer sunlight while there, it is best to sun bathe in private. Psoriasis can be an embarrassing condition for most
people, so unless you could care less on what the attractive lifeguard thinks about your current skin situation, it would probably be best to sun bathe in private for now.
Ideal spots for private sun bathing would be in the woods or in your own backyard. Other secluded areas include, outskirt beaches, country fields, or upon high rooftops such as three story apartment buildings or skyscrapers.
By showing consistency with going outside a few times a day to stand in the beautiful sunlight, having healthier skin will become more likely than ever.

#2: Cardio Exercise is an Alternative Psoriasis Treatment
– I perform cardio exercises for at least thirty to forty-five minutes, three to five days a week. ?
Some people dread cardio because they’re not comfortable with being out of breath. I admit, it can be difficult at first but once you get the hang of it, cardio can be quite easy and fun.
Cardio means heart. Many people hear the word cardio exercise and think of jogging dizzy. They’re right; jogging is an excellent heart exercise that can make you dizzy if you go too extreme with it too quickly. But there are countless other
types of cardio exercises that one can perform besides jogging. Here are some cardio workouts to name a few.
- – Latin Dance Cardio
- – Karate
- – Cardio DVD Workouts
- – Mountain Climber Twist Variations
- – Sit- Ups
- – Pilates
A lot of these cardio exercises actually seem fun, fun like getting high, I’m not kidding. Exercise gives the body a “natural high,” it’s what some people call a “euphoric high.” Some people can become addicted to this natural high as if they were addicted to any other drug. They crave their fix of endorphins, so they grab their bike and climb a
mountain and reap all the benefits thereof.
The point of cardio exercises is to get the heart pumping at higher rates of speed enabling faster blood flow throughout the circulatory system. This permits increased oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange within the body’s cells as the lungs breathe deeply. The exchange allows the body to release more toxins via sweating and metabolizing.
Stress is also another toxin released and stored in the body. Sometimes stress can be so faint, we don’t even know we’re stressing out. Stress has been known to affect the skin negatively, psoriasis included.
Cardio exercises contend with the body’s stress factor by releasing hormones called endorphins. Endorphins are neuro-transmitters that block stress receptors and replace it with pleasure instead. In other words, stress causes inflammation, so block that stress by substituting it with endorphins. Endorphins are acquired by cardio exercising.
Evidence shows an excessive amount of fat and cholesterol present in
psoriasis skin samples; meaning that psoriasis patients are consuming above average amounts of cholesterol. Cardio helps the body burn massive amounts of fat by using fat as an energy source.
Cardio exercises are ideal for overall health and exceptional when ridding high amounts of toxins from the body as well as burning cholesterol.
The heart and the circulatory system are primal keys to our well being. For this reason, the heart and the circulatory system should be exercised the most.

#3: Lecithin Can Cure Psoriasis
– I ingest spoonfuls of lecithin every day.
I found this ingredient in the book Let’s Get Well, written by nutritionist Adelle Davis, first printed in 1972. There was a section on psoriasis, describing “254 patients” ceasing new break outs after the first week, after being given “4 to 8 tablespoons” of lecithin. Even severe cases of psoriasis displayed recovery after just five months.
Because massive amounts of cholesterol exist in the blood and the skin cells of those that have psoriasis, lecithin can work beneficially by reducing cholesterol and dissolving it. Lecithin also emulsifies fats, enabling the fat to be dispersed in water. Since psoriasis patients have shown to have an excessive amount of fat cells. Taking advantage of lecithin should be definite because it dissolves fat cells. While attempting to cure psoriasis from your system, lecithin is a God-send.
Lecithin is a lipid that exists in the body already. Produced by the liver, it is one of the main components that hold together the cell walls; it is also in other animals, eggs, spinach and peanuts and many other foods. It is a natural phospholipid in the body’s cell membranes.
*Note: Because peanuts are associated with allergies. People who are trying to cure psoriasis should not eat peanuts. Only four eggs are allowed a week and most meats should be avoided until their skin has recovered. More on this information is in The Don’t List of this website.
I looked for lecithin in stores everywhere but they were only sold in pill capsules in select places. It would take five to ten capsules just to fill one table spoon. And pill bottles had only about 200 soft gel
capsules, meaning that I would definitely have to finish a twenty dollar bottle in less than a week.
Liquid lecithin are sold by quarts online, likely cheaper than a bottle of soft gel lecithin, but also more convenient then popping 50 pills a day. Stock up on plenty of liquid lecithin. Ordering several
quarts will ensure lecithin will be taken regularly at least 4 to 8 table spoons of lecithin a day.
I prefer to use the liquid lecithin that has no soy and is Non GMO.
Read my Lecithin review and know where I get my Liquid Lecithin for cheap.
#4: The 80/20 Alkaline/Acid Ratio is the best Psoriasis Diet Plan
– I try to enforce 80% fresh vegetables in every meal. ?
The 80/20 rule is an awesome platform to base your diet on. The Psoriasis expert Dr Pagano educates us that when eating alkaline forming foods, your body is less likely to become inflamed and also allows the body to “become more resistant to all types of diseases and physical ailments.” Yes acid forming foods are highly beneficial too, but eating them in the proper proportion is best for the person who wants to cure psoriasis.
Alkaline foods, for the most part, consist of leafy/juicy vegetables, and acid forming foods consists of mostly meats. To properly benefit
from the 80/20 rule, only eat small portions of meat during meals. Force feed yourself plenty of green vegetables while eating meats
Eating lots of vegetables does NOT include eating nightshades. Nightshades will not cure your psoriasis. In fact, nightshades will do the opposite. Nightshades, and why you should avoid them will be discussed in further detail on the “Don’t List” and on my “eBook.”
Safe Alkaline Foods that Made 80% of My Plate
- – Cucumbers – (Peal the waxy skin off because wax is sometimes added)
- – Celery
- – Squash
- – Almonds (12 almonds a day only)
- – Beans (Eat sparingly & Never with meat)
- – Peas (Eat sparingly & Never with meat)
- – Mushrooms
Small Portions of Sweet Potatoes can be eaten sparingly. The reason for this is sweet potatoes have a lot of natural sugar and as you keep reading you will understand why too much natural sugar, especially from fruits, should be avoided in the first month and eaten in small amounts after that.
White processed sugar from sugar cane must never be eaten. Artificial sweeteners must also never be eaten. Sweet potatoes do not include the regular white potato which is a nightshade. As you read on, and continue to “The Don’t List” in the next post, you will understand why sugar and nightshades must be avoided if you want to cure psoriasis.
Glyco-Thymoline is a alkaline antiseptic used to cleanse the intestines and help make the body alkalitic. Doctor John Pagano says
that even though it is nonprescription it must first be approved “by an MD or an osteopath” before using. He states that a few drops in water before bedtime a few days a week “promotes alkalinity and cleanses the digestive tract.
Although I have never tried applying Glyco-Thymoline externally to affected areas, claims have been reported that the product relieves
I strictly only use this a couple times a week, but only as a mouth-wash. I do not put a few drops in my water and drink it.
The All Natural Glyco Thymoline brand is the original alkaline mouthwash and it has been family owned since 1894. It has been recommended by doctors and dentists since the 1800’s to reduce acidity.
I personally use this product as a mouth wash because of it’s alkaline effects on the blood.
Some featured bonuses of Glyco-Thymoline is that is works like other mouth wash brands but with the alkaline effect.
- Reduces Acid
- Reduces Inflammation
- Cleanses Mouth
- Counters Bad Breath
This stuff is hard to find in stores, but they sell it on Amazon, here’s the link. Glyco-Thymoline.
#6: Zen Fusion Reduces Inflammation, Psoriasis, and Redness
-Everybody has their skin lotion, this is mine.
Zen Fusion Clear Skin Formula sold by Doctors Defense online, is a wonderful herbal cream that literally improves the appearance of
inflammation after application. Within the next day of application my skin had a better appearance. The Doctors Defense website has many testimonies of satisfied customers.
Zen Fusion Sell Slogans
– “Gentle enough for babies”
– “Physician tested and endorsed”
– “Get the red out naturally”
Zen Fusion has an advantage over other formulas because it combines natural ingredients with no side effects. Other products combine
unnatural ingredients’ and have many side effects. Zen Fusion is gentle with the body yet tough with Psoriasis; specifically made to counter inflammations caused by Psoriasis and Eczema. Zen Fusion is a must use, especially if you want to see less flakes and inflammation.
Ways to Apply
Zen Fusion is on the pricy side and for good reason. Literally nicknamed “Miracle Cream,” it runs about $28 for one 5oz container.
In the morning after showering; a tiny amount can be applied to the affected areas. Rub the lotion in good so that it absorbs deep into the skin. In the middle of the day, it is good to apply a second application.
At nighttime after showering; rub in the third application. This last application can be rubbed in real deep for a long time. My preferred method is to apply the Zen Fusion while watching TV and settling in for the night.
Just massage the lotion in gently but firmly for several minutes on one area of the affected skin, then move on to the next. Make sure to be very conservative with this miracle cream because it will run out quickly.
You may see results almost immediately after application, maybe to a
point where the lesions won’t be visible. However, please don’t get the
impression that this cream has banished your psoriasis away for good. It is not a psoriasis cure on it’s own.
It may do a good job on masking the symptom of psoriasis but it definitely won’t stop the problem. It won’t cure psoriasis by itself as most people think creams do. To cure psoriasis you have to attend to the problem within your body and not continue to react to the symptom. You have to be proactive and not reactive. It is necessary that you continue reading and abiding with the measured steps that others and I have done.
Go to Doctors-Defense.com to get the Zen Fusion.
#7: Vitamin E Treats Psoriasis
– Generous amounts of Vitamin E every day.
Vitamin E is a fat soluble vitamin and it does the skin wonders. It is believed to be nontoxic and a preventative for many diseases and
ailments. Vitamin E is considered an antioxidant. It also provides the skin with a firm yet flexible appeal.
Not only does it slow the ageing process of the skin by promoting more vigor in the body tissue, but it also helps heal scar tissue and improves the appearance of acne.
Vitamin E also stops-free radical production, which means most of the negative effects from aging will be less likely to occur. Dodging
chronic diseases and degenerative metal imbalances like Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia are also a plus.
Many health books give different doses on the recommended daily in-take. Personally, I take 1000 mg of soft gel capsules a day. But
different doses are on preference for different people depending on age and weight. Just know that whatever the dose you decide for yourself, Vitamin E is considered very advantageous and should be taken in abundance.
Because it’s a natural moisturizer, vitamin E can also be used as a lotion that helps treat psoriasis on the spot. Many skin products and lotions have Vitamin E mixed in with other ingredients; some products have natural ingredients in the mix, and some do not. Some people skip all that and just open a Vitamin E capsule and rub it on the skin.
Remember Vitamin E is considered non-toxic, so plenty of this enriched vitamin, whether ingested orally by food or pill, or applied as a lotion to the epidural surface, will guarantee healthier skin.
Note on vitamin Manufacturers:
Some vitamin suppliers try to make their products cheap and affordable by using only inexpensive ingredients. The problem with this method is, you get beneficial additives in your multivitamin that your body can’t utilize effectively or at all. Thus your body still becomes deficient because of it.
High quality vitamin products should always be considered. Along with eating all my greens, I have been using E Vitamin supplements for a long time now. Try to find high quality Vitamin E.
Here’s the link for high quality Vitamin E.
Foods Rich in Vitamin E
- – Spinach
- – Zucchini
- – Taro Root
For those that are scared of swallowing pills, don’t worry. There are many ways to ingest pills without swallowing them whole.
About a decade ago I almost choked on an antibiotic tablet. The tablet was so huge, I have no idea why I even attempted to swallow it,
but me being a dumbass sometimes, I did try, and it got caught in my throat. It was lodged between my windpipe and esophagus, thus leaving a small hole to breath.
Being an EMT, I know from experience that if the patient can still breathe, then a good, solid cough should pop the object right out. Only problem was that when I inhaled deeply to give a cough; I could feel the huge horse of a pill start to dangle closer towards my windpipe.
So then when I finally coughed and nothing came out, I found myself having to inhale even deeper yet again, due to my loss of breath from my last cough/exhalation. And again the pill lurked even closer to my windpipe causing me to breathe with a wheeze. I swallowed saliva several times and the pill moved more towards my esophagus. The wheezing went away.
I decided to calm down and breathe slowly through my nose and just let the pill dissolve where it was. “At least I could still breathe” I thought.
I called my medic friend over and slowly drank some water. I must have drunk a whole gallon of water by the time it dissolved in my throat.
After that day, I decided I wouldn’t swallow a big or even medium sized pill ever again. What was the point of trying to get better if I was just going to literally choke on my own efforts?
Ways to Consume Capsules, Pills, or Tablets without Swallowing Them Whole.
– Chew it up and down it with water.
– Cut or break the pill right down the middle.
– Mash and mix it with a blended drink.
– Squeezing. If it’s a soft gel capsule, poke a hole and squeeze past the tongue.
#8: The Law of Attraction Will Allow You to Cure Psoriasis
– Watch, The Secret documentary on YouTube or read the books.
The brain and the brain waves it emits work in mysterious ways. They can be considered reality creators. Whatever reality one thinks about passionately, it will eventually manifest itself in the universe in some way or another. To put it is in simpler terms. Thoughts eventually become things.
The desk you sit at; somebody imagined that desk before, and now the desk is a real thing that originated from the mind. The guy saw himself as a doctor, so now he is a doctor. They passionately dreamed they would live in a big house, and they do. Some people really do live in their dream homes and don’t even realize it.
Here is a relative example: She passionately saw herself with beautiful skin. Her skin is beautiful now.
If one is constantly thinking of positive things, then positive things manifest. If one is constantly thinking of negative things, then negative things manifest.
To truly utilize the law of attraction, one must not only think what they truly want, but also truly feel what they want, deeply believe that they have what they truly want, and dwell in it.
There have been many people in the world that have healed their incurable diseases by just using their minds. They have cured many diseases and ailments on themselves and in others. Some would say that mind over matter can definitely cure psoriasis easily, and is powerful enough to work so long that there is nothing working against it. By “against it,” I’m referring to self doubt, disbelief, and bad dieting. Negative thinking can be a poison in itself.
More than just a placebo effect where your mind was tricked into believing a certain outcome to benefit the body; the secret law of
attraction is the creation of one’s own future by just simply believing, feeling, and living in that reality; but only in the reality that you truly desire.
Law of Attraction Reading Material
– The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
– The Power by Rhonda Byrne
Tell your mind that your skin is clear now; and truly believe that that’s what really is. Ignore the mirror and the appearance of your
skin. Concentrate really hard, that your skin really is smooth, moist, clear and attractive, and only ever think that and nothing else.
There is no room for pessimism. Even though a positive thought is 10 times stronger than a negative thought, why bother with it and waste
time. Why put wind resistance on the fuselage of a plane when it doesn’t even need it? We want to get the ball rolling not slow it down. If
positive thoughts are a 75MPH sign on the expressway, then negative thoughts can be considered speed bumps
From now on, don’t think about the subject matter, and definitely don’t talk about the subject matter. Because by doing so, you verify to the universe that that is what still is, and that’s exactly what we don’t want. We don’t want the universe to confirm what we don’t want but instead we want the universe to manifest what we do want, and that
would be clear and attractive looking skin. So that’s exactly what you should think, “clear and attractive skin.”
Pick two or several of the mantras below to repeat in your mind daily. You can think them whenever. When you wake up in the morning and when you go to sleep at night. It’s considered peaceful thinking. Use them while driving in the car, while taking a shower, while walking, bike riding or jogging.
Yes there are other things on the mind that us as humans must contemplate about throughout the day but mantras are considered good meditation exercises to be used whenever. They can be used when negative thoughts try to surface. Negative thoughts will indeed surface. It is up to you to train the mind and breathe through the negativity until it evaporates away. Mantras are perfect tools to use to cure psoriasis.
Like a Mantra
– “I have clear skin.”
– “I have smooth skin.”
– “I have sexy skin.”
– “I have great skin.”
– “I have wonderful skin.”
– “I have perfect skin.”
– “I have flawless skin.”
– “I have attractive skin.”
– “I have radiant skin.”
– “I have angelic skin.”
– “I have miraculous skin.”
– “I have excellent skin.”
– “I have superb skin.”
– “I have good skin.”
– “I have gorgeous skin.”
– “I have cute skin.”
– “I have hot skin.”
– “I have better than normal skin.”
– “I have stupendous skin “
– “I have astounding skin.”
– “I have amazing skin “
– “I have stunning skin.”
– “I have pretty skin.”
– “I have handsome skin.”
– “I have young looking skin.”
– “I have awesome skin.”
– “I have breathtaking skin.”
– ”I have astonishing skin.”
– “I have fantastic skin.”
– Make up your own and put it here. “I have ( ) skin.”
So don’t even think or say sentences like “I don’t have Psoriasis.” Because just by saying you don’t “have psoriasis,” you are still saying the word “psoriasis”, and the universe will interpret the sentence as just “have…psoriasis.” Therefore it will still exist and that’s the opposite of what we want.
This philosophy may seem very bazaar at first, but I guarantee if these books and documentaries are viewed and put to use; magnificent things will start to happen.
#9: Fish Oil Fights Inflammation
– Eat more fish and omega 3 fish oil. ?
It is well known that fish oil is an antioxidant, and has many benefits; two of those benefits include lowering cholesterol and inflammation in the body. The long-chain Omega 3 fatty acid in fish oil is basically EPA
(eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenic acid) molecules. These oils are used right away, skipping the conversion process because DHA and EPA are already converted into useable molecules.
The problem is, some Omega 3 products (which are anti-inflammatory), have more Omega 6 oils (most are pro-inflammatory) mixed in the supplement. Taking capsules with more Omega 6 than Omega 3 defeats the whole point of taking anti-inflammatory oil supplements in the first place.
And yes, almost everything with Omega 3 (productive) has trace amounts Omega 6 (counterproductive if over consumed), but if the food in
question has more Omega 6 than it does Omega 3 then most anti-inflammation benefits will be lost.
Through time, mankind has kept a suitable ratio between the Omegas. Omega 6 and Omega 3 would both be present in our diets with an even ration of 1:1. Through this equilibrium, mankind sustained a less inflammatory existence.
According to Kris Gunnars, BSc, at Authoritynutrition.com, as of now, in the twenty first century, the
American diet holds a cringing “16:1;” with Omega 6 leading immensely. When there is an overload of the inflammatory types of Omega 6 and an under-load of the anti-inflammatory Omega 3, “bad things start to happen
in the body. The excess Omega 6 fatty acids build up in our cell membranes and contribute to inflammation.”
Understandably, Omega 6 has its benefits too. In conjunction with Omega 3, Omega 6 helps maintain bone integrity, metabolism regulation, helps maintain reproduction functions, and brain functions as well as triggering acute inflammation when needed.
Few types of omega 6 oils can even be an anti-inflammatory agent. Omega 6 is present in good foods too, like chicken, eggs, seeds, and nuts. But the main point is to reduce inflammation, and too much Omega 6 fatty acid causes body malfunctions and chronic inflammation which is counterproductive to a person with psoriasis. Balance the Omegas by consuming more Omega 3. Purchase fish oil with more Omega 3 fatty acids and less Omega 6 fatty
Here’s the link for quality omega 3 fish oil.
According to the CDC, Omega 3 Fish Oil is Beneficial for Many Diseases
- – Coronary Heart Disease
Ratio: Omega 6/ Omega 3
– Salmon: 3.1
– Spinach: 3.1
– Flaxseeds: 4.1
– Swordfish: 2.1
– Red Lettuce: 5.1
– Kale: 2.1
– Mackerel: 3.1
Lately, my meat intake has been mostly fish. If I don’t eat fish that day, I will take some Omega 3 fish oil capsules as a substitute.
Sometimes I’ll do both; I’ll eat fish and still take the Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules.
For those that don’t like fish, the Omega 3 Fish Oil capsules are perfect to ingest without the fishy taste. Just don’t chew them.
To those with Phagophobia
Use the squeezing technique. Fish oil comes in a soft gel capsule, poke a hole in the capsule and squeeze out the oil deep inside your
mouth and past the tongue. Try to aim for the uvula, (that thing that hangs in the back of your throat,) that way the fish oil taste won’t be so potent due to the oil mostly just touching the back of the mouth.
When using the squeezing technique with fish oil capsules, the preferred method would be to do your squeezing in the bathroom. This way you can quickly brush your teeth after you drink some water. This cancels the fishy taste left in your mouth.
#10: Monounsaturated Fats Can Prevent Inflammation
– Healthiest Oils in the World.
Some people hear the word “fats,” and unpleasant thoughts manifest in their heads. “I can’t eat that. It’s too fattening.” Or, “If I eat fat it’s going to make me fat.” And a very popular statement, “Fats are unhealthy and clog your arteries.” These statements are not completely accurate.
Yes, some fats are unhealthy and can cause medical problems. However, some of us forget that there are good fats too. Good fats do quite the opposite of their bad-fat counter parts.
Good fats can do miraculous things for your health, including, life expansion, weight loss and even prevent inflammation. A lot of us forget about these good
fats. If we learn where they are, and more about them, we can better utilize them.
Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) are good fats. MUFA is present in both meat and in plants. It’s present next to saturated fats in animals
and can be found in the olive and in the avocado alike. Both meat eaters and vegetarians benefit from monounsaturated fats.
Monounsaturated fats are fatty acids with one unsaturated carbon bond (double bond) in the fatty acid chain and the remaining atoms are single bonded. One easy way to distinguish the difference is MUFA stays in a liquid state while at room temperature and it solidifies during refrigeration. There are many places to get monounsaturated fats.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
In the 1960’s, Greece, Italy, and most other Mediterranean people lacked fat related diseases despite having a high fat diet. It was later learned that olive oil was their primary fat source, which contained high amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids one of which is oleic acid. Oleic acid is a MUFA that is linked to anti-inflammation.
The Mediterranean people ate olive oil with everything and had lower heart problems versus countries with heart problems that didn’t eat
olive oil at all. Mediterranean eating is now very popular and the olive industry has been booming ever since.
During cooking, most monounsaturated oils can be resistant to low heat damage, which means it keeps its molecular stability and
nutritional form. This is great news for us; because it rarely receives any oxidative damage at low temperatures. It can help us be
unsusceptible to free radicals and inflammation.
But according to Doctor John, like other oils, if subjected to too much heat it can in turn “change to a free radical.” He recommends eating “olive oil in its natural state as often as possible,” and to take “one teaspoon of olive oil three times per day unless there is a gallbladder problem.” Extra virgin olive oil is ideal for most recipes.
Raymond Francis says that “is a very healthy food, we know that it helps to prevent cancer, it has been used for thousands of years, the problem is you can’t get any. More olive oil is sold today then produced. The demand has simply out striped the supply. So what they do is they dilute it with other oils.
They did a study that 96 percent of all the extra version olive oils that they tested had been adulterated by other oils. This loses all the health given properties. Here is the link for pure, high quality, unfiltered, fresh, natural, unrefined, organic extra virgin olive oil.
Benefits Linked to Olive Oil
– Counters Psoriasis
– Prevents Inflammation
– Fights Stress
– Counters Obesity
– Reduces Chance of Heart Disease
– An Antioxidant
– Contains Omega 3
– Helps Prevent Osteoporosis
– Reduces Risk of Diabetes
– May Help Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease
– Defends Against Cancer
– Helps Regulate Blood Sugar Levels
– Reduces Blood Pressure
– Lowers Cholesterol
– Lowers Risk of Stroke
The Avocado? , known as “the sexy fruit,” is very peculiar because it has monounsaturated fats. Unlike other fruits which carry mostly carbohydrates. The main MUFA in the avocado is oleic acid, the same anti-inflammatory fatty acid that is in olive oil. The avocado is loaded with fibers, nutrients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, good fats, and a few carbohydrates, making avocado a supreme super food.
Besides eating avocados daily, they can be used topically too. According to healthdiaries.com, there has finally been a study on the avocado on the psoriasis remedy. Basically, avocado oil and olive oil are mixed and added to the skin to help it heal faster.
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “many people experienced positive results from using avocado oil. Applying avocado oil directly to the affected area of skin may help your psoriasis patches to heal faster.” This doesn’t work for everyone, for those that have been changing their diet; this remedy seems worth experimenting with. And unless you are allergic to avocados, you have nothing to lose.

Another food that has a high amount of MUFA is the almond. My girlfriend’s opinion, almonds taste like unsweetened ice-cream. I don’t agree, and I think she’s crazy. They belong to a fruit group, related to plums, peaches, and cherries and are the seed of a fruit on the almond
tree. Almonds alkalize the body, and are subjectively the healthiest type of nut there is. If you still want to call it a nut and not a fruit
(because people will call you crazy if you do) then call it the super food of nuts; a super nut that’s jammed packed with benefits.
Some of the most beneficial almond ingredients include linoleic acids and linolenic acids. Both acids are powerful types of monounsaturated fats. Linoleic and linolenic acids are highly anti-inflammatory and are allowed to eat sparingly on psoriasis diets.
Doctor Pagano says that eating “a few almonds a day” is very advantageous; therefore, almonds are on his recommended list, but only
one dozen almonds a day at the most he says. He is very specific in his books about not over eating, and not over portioning foods. He stresses that “when there is a choice to eat more or less, always eat less.”

#11: Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Heals the Skin
– Generous Amounts on the Skin
Did you know that extra virgin coconut oil (EVCO) contains the same type of fatty acids that are present in your skin? That’s right; EVCO is an excellent lotion for dry skin because it bonds with skin cells by acting as a nourishing, moisturizing, absorbable, fatty acid. Not only that, studies show that coconut oil also decreases inflammation and loosens flaking skin all over the body including the scalp.
From experience, coconut oil helped reduce my itching to bare minimum. This fact alone was considered gold to me. Sometimes the itching would be so annoying and unbearable that I would just yell “Forget this… AHHHHH, something cure my psoriasis now!” I would yell things like that as loud as I could.
Prescribed medications did nothing for my itch much less decrease inflammation. The types of treatments prescribed to unfortunates like me included cream that smelled like charcoal and other topical medications that didn’t seem to do anything for my skin or itch.
The reason EVCO works so well is because it contains the good type of saturated fatty acid. This is called “medium chained saturated fatty
acids” which “are easily digested, absorbed and utilized by the body,” says Todd Bello in his internet article The Negative Effects of Coconut Oil. He “has been suggesting coconut oil for psoriasis since” he “can remember.
Coconut oil has about 90 percent saturated fats and the rest monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Yes coconut oil can be eaten, but the real benefit comes with direct application. Applying EVCO to inflamed, itchy patches of skin all over the body are what thousands of people are doing all over the world, most users experience ultimate relief.
So yes, adding this anti-inflammatory psoriasis cure to the “To Do List” is a must. Be very generous with the quantity applied every day. I applied it several times daily. Coconut oil not only decreased my inflammation and loosened my flakes but it decreased my itch. That latter fact alone makes coconut oil a must have for any temporary itching sufferers. Relief is a great thing.

Coconut Oil can also be used for cooking at high temperatures because it is one of the few oils that remain stable over high heat. Most other
oils oxidize, or chemically combine with oxygen, changing its molecular structure and becoming toxic.
Coconut oil is a good saturated fat and is known to do something different than oxidize when heated. When EVCO is “produced with heat,”
it “results in the highest amounts of antioxidants,” according to Dr. Axe in Food is Medicine. A study published by Food Science and Biotechnology theorizes that this is “due to the release of polyphenols.”
It is important to use organic coconut oils and not synthetic or altered coconut oils because some coconut oil manufactures produce their oil using a more refined process, altering it via chemical distillation, heat, preserves, desiccation, and substitutes. This alteration perverts the saturated fat and converts it into an unhealthy “synthetic trans fat,” which is highly unbeneficial.
When buying Extra virgin coconut oil, especially when using it to cook, choose, pure, organic, high quality coconut oil, and find the one with excellent consumer product ratings. Study up on the product that interests you before you buy it online or while walking down to the grocery store. It’s easy, just pull out your phone and ask Google via microphone “top five healthiest coconut oil brands,” or “Mom and Pop Coconut Oil brand good or bad?” Nine times out of ten there will be information about that oil.
You can also look on the back of the bottle it comes in. If it has any other ingredients besides EVCO, or if it says is was processed in a facility that produces soy, or anything strange or counterproductive for the person that wants to cure psoriasis, then it may be a clue to just browse a different brand.

#12: Garlic Prevents Psoriasis Flair-Ups
– A Little bit of garlic here and there.
Garlic is known as “nature’s penicillin” meaning its nature’s antibiotic. Yes this glorious root fights infection causing bacteria. But it also lowers cholesterol levels by 15% which is why garlic was added to this list. Because high cholesterol levels exist in the skin of psoriasis patients, fresh garlic should be consumed weekly.
Garlic has been used since farmers first started farming. It is an alternative medicine, natures medicine. Scholars say it was originally cultivated in Asia, but that can be debated.
Ingestion of a garlic can reduce plaque in the arteries, lower cholesterol, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Our bodies are literally trying to tell us something. If findings of too much cholesterol are evident, then reducing the excessive cholesterol levels should be obvious by eating fresh garlic or taking quality garlic supplements.
Garlic Helps Prevent

But if you don’t want to cook with garlic and don’t like the smell. Here is the link for the highest rated odor controlled garlic supplement with little to no preservatives and has the highest quality organically sourced ingredients.
#13: Probiotics treats Inflammation
– Quality and quantity are very important..
Probiotics are good bacteria. Our bodies have billions of good bacteria already functioning in our digestive track with the sole purpose of, digestion, fighting infections and bad bacteria. But if we eat high amounts of cholesterol and dairy product, good bacteria becomes depleted, giving room for bad bacteria to take over.
Bad diet and stress destroy billions of good bacteria every day, which leads to digestive problems that also effect the skin. When we take probiotics, it helps us digest food more efficiently thus supporting our immune system.
When a bad bacterium takes over the digestive system, problems occur and the body starts to malfunction in different ways.
Friendly Flora, or probiotics can be bought in supplement form and it’s best to find tested, and high rated brands that are known for their variety of different strains. The total number of different strains, or types of bacteria in each probiotic formula, varies significantly. Each strain is diverse and affects the overall gained benefits.
Furthermore, some Flora brands lay dormant in their warehouses, exceeding their shelf life and collecting stale dust. This renders the percentage of live cultures down to sometimes even zero percent. Which means the product purchased is obsolete.
The CFU or Colony-Forming Units is also very important when shopping for probiotics. It represents the total amount of bacteria present. The CFU is extremely important because Flora are only effective in large quantities.
Ultimate Flora – Critical Care is a good brand that meets the requirements in question.

#14: Olive Leaf Extract Is Good For The Skin
– This was one of the best recommendations ever presented to me.
Olive leaf extract is another antioxidant that can be placed in this list. I discovered this wonderful extract in the first few years of looking for something to cure my psoriasis. A random lady was selling information off her own blog on how to cure psoriasis through time.
She charged twenty dollars for a list of about five items that worked for her. I wrote down the items on paper after I downloaded it. The next day, somebody stole my laptop bag with the paper in it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t remember who she was, where to find her online again, and the items on the paper, except the antioxidant olive leaf extract.
To make things clear; an antioxidant prevents free radicals in the cell, it does this by taking up the space a free radical may converge. A
free radical is an atom or molecule that has a single vulnerable electron by itself (AKA, valence electron) leaving the atom or molecule
without a closed electron shell. When bonded to a cell, free radicals make the cell more susceptible and chemically reactive to other
substances which may even react badly with each other. Olive leaf extract establishes itself to an atom rendering it closed and not vulnerable.
For centuries mankind has used olive leaf extract for health benefits. In ancient Egypt, Olive Leaf extract was commonly used as medicine for illnesses. Today it is also used inside skin lotions, creams and an assortment of beauty products.
Oleuropein, (a polyphenol), found in the olive tree is what is sought after because of its antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal
