Do you want soft, glowing skin but suffer from psoriasis, inflammation or psoriatic arthritis? You could be at risk for more serious complications, like heart disease and cancer. With these Body Ecology guidelines, you can nourish your skin AND your body from the inside out.
Psoriasis is a skin disease that most commonly appears as “plaque psoriasis,” which is raised, inflamed red patches covered by a silvery white scale. It can appear anywhere on your body.
Psoriasis is not contagious and may seem like an unattractive and inconvenient part of your life, but it can become more serious. Psoriasis can develop into psoriatic arthritis, a condition characterized by inflammation, pain and swelling of the joints.
With documented risks like these, psoriasis is more than just a cosmetic disease.
Common over-the-counter and prescription treatments of psoriasis aim to slow cell turnover and reduce scaling, but experts have not yet found an “official cure”.
Psoriasis is linked to systemic inflammation. Inflammation is your body’s response to stressfrom diet, lifestyle and/or environment. It causes many diseases like arthritis and cancer, as well as psoriasis and general aging.
Common treatment of psoriasis includes anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin and ibuprofen, but these just temporarily ease the symptoms. Body Ecology’s approach to whole body health provides a road map to wellness for those who suffer from psoriasis by: addressing your internal health, reducing inflammation by conquering infections (especially candidaisis), and healing your body from the inside out.
Here is our step-by-step approach to improving your psoriasis with the Body Ecology system for health and healing:
To heal any disease including psoriasis you must focus on alkalizing your blood, building your immune system and conquering the infectionsthat cause inflammation. Over the years we have received many emails and comments from those on The Diet saying it “totally cleared up their two year old’s psoriasis” or I have struggled with psoriasis and nothing helped until I went on your diet.”
The Body Ecology Diet is an anti-fungal, alkaline, largely plant based, sugar and gluten-free,probiotic diet. We focus on helping you regain your health from the inside out. Of course, conquering yeast infections is our specialty and research clearly indicates a connection between yeast/fungal infections and psoriasis.
They are good for you both inside and out. In fact, here’s an interesting tip: Applyany of our probiotic liquids topically right onto your irritated and scaly skin. Simply steep a cotton cloth in the liquid to create a compress and apply. Cocobiotic, InnergyBiotic, BE WholeGrain or Dong Quai are all effective. Of course, throughout the day you will want to consume small amounts of these liquids taken internally, so that the beneficial microflora in these liquids can help alkalize your blood, build immunity and help conquer the yeast infection that often is the underlying cause of psoriasis...especially in young children.
Sooth inflammatory conditions of your body and skin, like psoriasis, with probiotic-rich Coco-Biotic. Coco-Biotic is a champagne-like, sparkling fermented drink that helps improve your skin and can even help ease achy joints. Drink Coco-Biotic and heal your skin from the inside out.
And for a great probiotic-rich fermented vegetable option, try making our cultured vegetables for a daily dose of skin-healing beneficial bacteria and yeast.
