Eczema & Psoriasis: Healing From The Inside Out

plaque psoriasisOf all of the skin problems people experience, psoriasis & eczema can be the most frustrating.

Extreme itchiness, skin flakes, plaques, scaly skin.

Doesn’t sound like fun and rest assured it’s not, I know from experience.

So what exactly are these awful skin disorders and how can we help improve them naturally?

Eczema (definition) - a medical condition in which patches of skin become rough and inflamed, with blisters that cause itching and bleeding, sometimes resulting from a reaction to irritation (eczematous dermatitis) but more typically having no obvious external cause.

Psoriasis (definition) - a skin disease marked by red, itchy, scaly patches.

Topical treatment can help these two uncomfortable skin conditions, but full resolution will only come from the inside out.  

From the dietary perspective, it is fundamental to eliminate the foods that trigger the immune system. 

I recommend doing an elimination diet where suspect foods are cut out for 3 weeks to see if symptoms improve – common culprits are wheat, dairy, eggs, and soy.  

An alternative to this is a blood test checking for immune system antibodies to common food.




Eczema & Psoriasis: Healing from the inside outKEY ways to improve psoriasis and eczema:

  • improve you diet
  • detoxify
  • improve digestive health
  • balance stress. 

Toxicity of various sorts can overwhelm the body – clogging up the liver and slowing down its detoxification processes.  

Ultimately, if the liver is backed up, then unprocessed toxins spill into the circulation, affecting the immune balance in the skin.  

Signs of toxicity include headaches, fatigue, aches, digestive problems, skin rashes, allergy symptoms, and being uncomfortable with scents.  

Also realize that when we do not exercise regularly, we allow these toxins to just sit around, increasing the chance of triggering the skin’s immune cells.  

Simple approaches to detoxification include:

  • organic diet
  • 4-6 glasses of water
  • 25-35grams of fiber per day
  • liver-assisting herbs and spices such as milk thistle, dandelion, burdock, and turmeric.

Take care of your body and it will take care of you. We can put a band-aid on almost anything but the real treatment starts from the inside out.
