As I am a psoriasis sufferer myself, on ‘World Psoriasis Day’ I would like to share some all-natural remedies that have worked for me. And even though to date there is no known cure for this disease, there are certainly treatments that can ease the symptoms. Fish oil, vitamin D and milk thistle are all supplements that can quell and sometimes even stem this skin disease. Using a humidifier in the home can keep the air moist and prevent dry skin before it starts. My personal favorite, chocolate, has been said to be a ‘functional food’ that can help when used alongside these other treatments. Applying castor, coconut or even olive oil to the scales and patches can lock nutrients in, and using olive oil as moisturizer can even infiltrate scales. These are just a few ways to keep the itching and flaking of psoriasis to a minimum.
