PSORIASIS – A Severe Disease Deserving Global Attention

There are more than 125 million people, or nearly 3% of the world’s population, even newborn babies, who suffered from Psoriasis. It is estimated that at least 10% of psoriasis sufferers have a severe form that causes disability and exclusion from normal life.

Psoriasis has an overwhelming impact on the patient. Recent studies have shown that people with psoriasis are at an increased risk for other inflammatory diseases, such as arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, Crohn’s Disease, lupus, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, obesity, and can result in early death.




The underlying cause of the condition is not known, but it is associated with:

  • The overproduction of new skin cells (10 times as fast as normal), leading to the buildup of live cells (the cause of thickened patches) and profuse shedding of the outer skin layer. 
  • Several underlying factors may trigger the disorder or flare-ups, including the following: 


  • Disorder of the immune system
  • Food allergies
  • Heredity
  • Emotional stress
  • Skin injuries or sunburn
  • Accumulate toxins in an unhealthy colon
  • Certain drugs
  • Acidic food
  • Alcohol
  • Obesity
  • Overgrowth of the organism Candida albicans




  • Raised red patches of skin, covered with dry white or silvery scales. The patches usually appear on the elbows, knees, nails (fingers and foes), scalp and trunk 
  • Profuse shedding of dead skin (looks like dandruff when on the scalp), in severe cases 
  • Cracked painful skin that may bleed or itch





  • Eat a whole food diet as much as possible. 
  • Eat fish, fruits and vegetables.
  • Eat olive oil, garlic and onion. 
  • Drink fresh hand-pressed fruit juices, beet juice and carrot juice always. 
  • Drink plenty of water. 
  • Proper stress management and follow a healthy lifestyle. Keep a healthy body weight.



  • Alcohol and simple sugars. 
  • Pro-inflammatory food (saturated fats, dairy products and other animal products). 
  • Acidic food e.g. pineapple, oranges, coffee and tomato. 
  • Allergic food e.g. wheat, corn and egg. 
  • Nuts (except almonds) and aromatic spices (mustard, pepper. curry, etc).
