Hi everyone,
I was wondering if anyone has a child with Psoriasis? My youngest daughter is 11 and has had it since she was I think about 6 or 7 yrs old. It is similar to but much more stubborn than Ecsema. I agree that creams cover up the problem and don't get to the heart of the problem. Any suggestions from anyone? Stress can bring it on I've read, but I'm guessing diet may have something to do with it also. I just don't know where to begin. We've been to many dermatologists, I have researched endlessly online to no avail. Am about to try a concoction of oils~ would love any feedback! Thanks! Kendra ;)

i have a little patch on my head and found manuka honey to really work.  i bought it to heal a burn on my child and after it took it away, i gave it a whirl.  its not cheap and the stronger the better.   i dont know where it is on your daugher - but thr honey is sticky then hardens when it dries.

my daughter is 16 now and has had psorasis since she was 3yo, they say it is triggered by stress, but it is an auto-immune disorder. I have also been to several dermatologists and the best steroid topical solution is protopic for her but she also has had good results with dovenex. The only bad thing is they are steroids and eventually thin the skin causing white spots and high risk of burning when out in the sun. Food wise flax seed, omega 3, beans, and green tea are some good things I have read, caffeine and greasy foods are not.

I did some research and this is what I found. You don't have to do all of this. Just start with a few and keep working at it. Ailments usually take 3 months to clear up.

It is caused by acid in the blood. Diet is important. Doing a candida diet may be helpful. A clean colon supports digestion. Eat according to your blood type.

Herbal:
Noni Juice - 4 oz. or Tai Go - 2 oz.
Ultimate Green Zone - 3 tsp. daily
Enviro Detox
Pau D'Arco lotion mixed with tea tree oil, apply to skin
Skin Detox

Vit / Minerals:
Beta Carotene
Silver Shield
Zinc - 100 mg daily
B-Complex - 3 daily
Lecithin 6-12 or Black Currant Oil 2, 3X daily
Omega 3 + Flax Seed oil
Candida Clear

Other:
Healing AC cream + Silver Shield Gel

Diet:
Eliminate red meat, avoid unhealthy fats, fried foods, milk, acid fruits. Drink 1 qt. carrot/celery juice, potato pealing broth. Check pH for acids, reduce sugar.

Aromatherapy:
Bergamot, lavender, chamomile mixed in Healing AC cream

Mini Program (should get results quickly - good starting point):
Ultimate Green Zone, Ayurvedic Skin Detox, and 5.5 acid water

Hope that helps! You can find this stuff at any health store that sells Natures Sunshine brand, or you can shop online at a store such as mine: http://mynsp.com/hollymoulder/index.aspx

Off the top of my head, i can only think of Red Clover, but look it up online first and/or ask a doctor.  I think most online sources call for bathing in it...it has been so long since i have had time to refresh my memory on my herbs....
