This common condition impacts up to 7.5 million Americans to varying degrees.[i] While some cases of psoriasis are mild and merely a nuisance, others can be debilitating; about one in five people with psoriasis have a severe case that covers more than 10 percent of their body.
It’s thought that there’s a genetic link to psoriasis that may predispose you to developing this disease. Certain external factors, or “triggers,” also contribute to flare-ups in those affected, and include stress, skin injuries, certain medications, foods and even cold weather. Oftentimes, however, the exact cause of psoriasis is unknown, which makes allopathic treatment frustrating since it often focuses only on treating psoriasis symptoms with topical and oral medications.
Even then, the effectiveness of most conventional psoriasis treatments are questionable, and psoriasis drugs are notorious for their serious side effects, which range from liver damage and birth defects to anemia and life-threatening infections.
A Natural Psoriasis Cure You May Not Have Heard About
Every day you’re exposed to toxins — they’re found in your food in the form of antibiotics, preservatives, artificial flavors and colors; they’re in your water and in the air you breathe. From household chemicals to car exhaust to trans fats in your morning doughnut, these toxins accumulate over a lifetime, contributing to chronic inflammation in your body.
Chronic inflammation, in turn, is linked to a condition known as leaky gut syndrome (sometimes referred to as increased intestinal permeability), in which bacteria, toxins, undigested proteins and fats and other “waste” leaks from your intestines into your bloodstream. This can trigger an autoimmune reaction that causes all sorts of gastrointestinal problems (like gas, bloating and cramping), along with joint pain, fatigue and skin conditions, including psoriasis.
According to Dr. John Pagano, a leading holistic psoriasis expert and author of Healing Psoriasis:
“… the primary underlying cause of psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis is a toxic buildup within the body due, in many cases, to a leaky gut. The toxins “leak” into the blood circulatory system through compromised intestinal walls.”[ii]
He believes that not only is cleaning up your diet (to include primarily fruits and vegetables with only 20-30 percent meats and grains) incredibly important in dealing with this disease, but so is detoxification. In fact, Dr. Pagano defines psoriasis as:[iii]
” … the external manifestation of the body’s attempt to throw off internal toxins.”
Flushing Your System of Toxins is Key to Healing Psoriasis
A report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed that Americans have, on average, more than 200 chemicals in their blood and urine. This “body burden” can easily manifest as a variety of chronic health conditions, including skin problems like psoriasis.
Regular detoxification is therefore incredibly important, and can be achieved by making healthy lifestyle changes such as:
- Eating more detoxifying foods, such as cruciferous veggies, turmeric (a curry spice) and cinnamon
- Focusing your diet on unprocessed, organic foods
- Making sure your water is pure
- Eliminating toxins from your home by choosing natural cleaning products and natural building supplies (paints, flooring, etc.), using an air purifier, and so on
- Exercising, which helps you get rid of toxins via your sweat
- De-stressing regularly, as chronic stress will inhibit your body’s regular routes of detoxification
A Gentle Natural Cleanse to Flush Toxins from Your Colon …
You can further help to flush toxins from your system by choosing a gentle detoxification system like Natural Cleanse. Unlike chemical laxatives or fad cleansing diets, which often contain harsh ingredients that can irritate your GI tract and make inflammation worse, Natural Cleanse combines the very latest research and clinical studies in digestive health with centuries of traditional healing wisdom into a natural product that gently releases and flushes impacted fecal matter from your colon.
You might be surprised to learn that a clogged colon can also cause your gastrointestinal tract to become inflamed, leading to leaky gut, inflammation, an inability to absorb and synthesize key nutrients, and, ultimately, a worsening of brain and organ function. Poor skin condition like psoriasis is also a common sign of a clogged, toxic colon.
In just 2 capsules daily for 30 days, Natural Cleanse can help to flush your colon clear of toxic build up (including impacted fecal matter, toxins, bacteria and parasites) while soothing the inflammation of your GI tract lining to reduce leaky gut. Natural Cleanse contains herbal remedies like buckthorn bark, ginger root, and milk thistle extract combined with psyllium husk and a patented probiotic blend that helps rebalance your vital gut microflora and is clinically proven to improve digestive function.
If you’re having trouble with psoriasis or other “mystery” symptoms, cleansing your colon gently with Natural Cleanse should be your first step on the road to recovery and better overall health.
