How to Cure Psoriasis With Cucumbers
Whether cucumbers are fruits or vegetables I really don’t care, as long as it gives me beautiful skin. It can be any made up gender it wants to be.
Cucumbers can cure psoriasis because of three main attributes. One, the vitamins that are plentiful within cucumbers. Two, cucumbers are highly alkaline and do well to adjust the body’s acidity levels. Three, the minerals in cucumbers can reduce skin inflammation by large margins.
To better understand the psoriasis problem I recommend you also read the popular material on this website.
I could break down the fundamentals right here on this page. I could tell you once again all about the inflammatory skin disorder psoriasis. Or you could just click the links here or here, and we all win. But for clarity sake. I will repeat these important points.
- Raymond Francis, M. Sc. – who wrote, Never Be Sick Again. “There is only one disease,” and that one disease is called “Malfunctioning Cells. Cells only malfunction for two reasons: Toxicity and Deficiency.”
- John Pagano, D. C. – who wrote, Healing Psoriasis. Psoriasis is considered the “leaky gut syndrome, the workload for the kidneys and liver becomes so great that the body has to eliminate waste through the skin.”
All cells, white blood cells, red blood cells, and even skin cells require extremely high nutritional intake to operate properly. If the body’s systems are not functioning at their highest potentials, then there is definitely room for disruptive error.
When the human body errors, multiple immune systems within the body operate much harder, compensating for the lack of nutrients.
The mechanics of these immune systems also work vigorously reacting to off the chart toxins. Noticeable, symptoms on the skin occur in proof of this.
All in all, the problem and the solution with psoriasis can be summed up in two powerful terms.
- Toxicity: Too much toxin intake.
- Deficiency: Not enough nutritional intake.
If you want to know how to cure psoriasis it is simple. Give the body what it needs or it will malfunction. Stop giving the body what it doesn’t need or it will malfunction. This goes for many diseases and disorders.
Medical jargon for “symptom” is indication of disease present. Symptoms are indicators of important skirmishes going on in the body. These battles consist of white blood cells and body mechanics vs. bacteria, viruses, toxins, and many other contaminants foreign to the human body. The display of symptoms indicates malfunctioning activity in and outside of the body.
What is Inflammation?
Acute inflammation or short term inflammation is considered good because it is activated when the body is damaged or imperil, such as an injury, fever, or infection.
Acute inflammation serves to terminate and eradicate bacteria, toxins, and other foreign objects when it is needed, and deactivates when it is no longer required. Hence, its name, “acute”inflammation, it arrives, it performs its task and is gone as quick as it came. Like a samurai.
Chronic inflammation or long term inflammation is considered a bad sign because it’s a symptom of something amiss. Red and bothersome, it likes to hang around like a soar thumb with no purpose or indication of ever leaving.
It attacks the body’s own tissue and doesn’t turn off or go away. Chronic inflammation continues to be activated because something within the body is keeping it activated. All types of mechanisms, mechanical or biological, if left operational for long periods of time, it may cause devastating problems eventually.
The Anti-Inflammatory Vitamins in Cucumbers
A Vitamin. Cucumbers contain small amounts of vitamin A. Tiny amounts that are still very beneficial. The immune system uses vitamin A for many functions. One utilization is it helps keep the body from overacting with excessive inflammation. It does this by fighting against free radicals.
C vitamin protects the body from damage as an antioxidant. It does this by donating electrons that neutralize free radicals. This in turn reduces plasma levels of inflammatory mediators thus reducing body inflammation all together.
We know that chronic inflammation is terrible for the body. And as stated in my book, How to Remedy Psoriasis Naturally, we know that toxicity, such as excessive free radicals, as well as nutrient deficiency instigates inflammation.
Huge overloads of free radicals can cause major oxidative damage and devastating inflammation issues. Luckily, vitamin C counters free radicals and can even fix oxidative damage.
K vitamin, exclusively known for it’s key role in helping with blood clot formation. It’s special ability helps to prevent bleeding in excess. But it also reduces inflammatory markers. The latter benefits us more in this case.
Two kinds of K vitamin in particular.
K1: Green or leafy vegetables such as kale, cabbage and spinach.
K2: Liver meat or eggs.
Cucumbers are very alkalitic, which is good news for anyone wanting to know how to cure psoriasis.
If you read my section on Dr. Paganos 80/20 rule. You will understand that a diet that is at least 80% alkaline, and humbly 20% acidic, will get your skin back.
Most people with psoriasis have a pH balance of too much acid. This means they eat an abundance of acid forming foods. Over indulging in meat and various junk foods causes extreme acidity in the blood stream. The aftermath of eating too much acidic foods can cause heart problems, organ problems, and skin problems such as skin inflammation AKA psoriasis.
So as a golden rule for eating extremely healthy meals for the purpose of learning then knowing how to cure psoriasis. It is ideal to eat a 80/20 balanced diet. Eating a fresh cucumber or two during a meal is an excellent side dish or even main dish. This is how to cure psoriasis folks.
Minerals vs. Vitamins
One of the main differences between minerals and vitamins is vitamins are organic. And minerals are inorganic.
Because vitamins are organic they originate from animals and plants. Minerals are inorganic solids and originate from atmosphere, soil or earth but are obtained through the plant and animal kingdoms. Both are naturally occurring.
Vitamins can also be broken down further from their existing chemical compound. Air, acid, heat and the reaction to other compounds make the chemical break down possible. Some edible minerals can’t be broken down any further because they exist as an element (simplest form of substance) and not a compound (combination of two or more elements in a well ordered, natural occurring chemical structure).
Essential minerals are basically a handful of raw elements on the periodic table or their compounds connected with each other. Also known as dietary minerals or dietary elements. Some elements bond with each other such as Carbon with Hydrogen or oxygen ect. We catbolize these elements after consumption.
Just like some vitamins, some dietary minerals are ideal in just trace amounts of digestion. And similar to some vitamins, some minerals are more beneficial if consumed in a more generous amount.
Another similarity several dietary minerals share with vitamins is the ability to be stored in the human body.
Minerals in Cucumbers vs. Inflammation
Keeping the body hydrated at 95 percent water. Cucumbers still pack a lot of vitamins and a lot of minerals.
- Manganese – Reduces inflammation as an antioxidant.
- Magnesium- Abundance is good. Deficiency = inflammation.
- Potassium – Flushes excessive sodium reducing inflammation.
- Iron – Trace amounts are good. Deficiency = inflammation.
- Sodium – Trace amounts needed for fluid balance.
- Calcium – Fights obesity. Fatty cell common with psoriasis.
The cucumber is a terrific anti-oxidant and is perfect for healing the skin, just in case you were wondering how to cure psoriasis. Eat plenty of them.
Just remember not to eat any counteractive ingredients which I discuss on my “Don’t List.” It is also imperative that you follow the “Do List.” Because let’s face it, just eating the healthy cucumber here and there is not gonna cut it folks. Give the body what else it needs because it needs a lot.
Don’t forget folks, I used to have psoriasis and eating cucumbers a few times a week as a side dish for lunch or dinner along with the do’s and do not’s of other things was my routine until I eventually cured my psoriasis naturally.
Eating a couple here and there, I would have to sometimes peel them first because some suppliers put wax on the skin to keep them looking fresh and appealing. Even though the skin contains high amounts of fiber and vitamins. The wax could cause problems in the long run.
You can remove the wax by soaking them in apple cider vinegar for a few minutes and then rinse off the cider under cold running water or just leave the cider on. If it has wax then this is my preferred technique.
Or just peal most of the skin off. Eat some or leave some.
So peeled or not peeled, you can eat them whole or sliced. No need to add any seasoning because they taste delicious as is.
Eating plenty of cucumbers reduces acidity and inflammation because of the nutrients it carries as mentioned in my lists and book.
Now you know to buy plenty of this delicious food from the produce section and try to eat them through out your week. They are usually sold at descent prices. I live in south Texas and cucumbers are sold here at HEB or Walmart for three for one dollar. What a steal! That’s way cheaper than prescription medicine.
