How To Conquer Your Psoriasis And Live A Normal Life!
If you’ve recently been diagnosed with psoriasis then it might feel like the end of the world as you know it. Although it is a huge blow to your confidence initially, you can get through it. Psoriasis is an auto-immune disease which causes red and dry patches of skin. Sometimes these patches of skin are raised, and become silvery like scales. This is referred to as plaque psoriasis.
Many people will tell you that there is no cure for psoriasis, and that is technically true. However in this article I’m going to give you some ways to cure psoriasis naturally, forever.
Before you can start healing your psoriasis, you’ll need to identify what the root cause is first. Psoriasis can be brought on by a single event, or multiple factors all strung together. There’s no single cause of psoriasis as you’re about to discover.
It’s a common myth that psoriasis is passed down hereditarily (from parents to children) however there are many cases of psoriasis where children do not have psoriasis despite their parents suffering from the disease. It’s also the case where children suffer from psoriasis where the parents did not.
One of the more recent discoveries is that being deficient in calcium can contribute to psoriasis. Calcium is a big part of the body, being part of our bones, teeth, nails and hair. Ensure that you’re getting the required amount of calcium by eating dairy products such as cheese, milk and yoghurt. This is so that your body can break down the calcium properly, and you’ll need vitamin D which you can get from sunlight.
Next up on the list is a high stress level. Stress is closely linked to psoriasis and has been found to cause psoriasis as well as cause flare-ups for those already suffering from the disease. Some psoriasis suffers report that stress doesn’t affect their psoriasis at all, while others insist they experience the worst outbreaks when they are under high amounts of stress.
If you find that stress is contributing to your psoriasis, you should look into ways of reducing stress. Take a look at stress management techniques and have some relaxation time to yourself each day. Meditation and Yoga are great activities to reduce your stress levels.
If you don’t exercise, then looking into an exercise activity will also help a lot. Start by taking a fast paced walk around your neighbourhood, or get into a physical sport. Exercise has been proven to boost the body’s energy levels and relieve stress.
Using effective communication also helps, such as talking things over with people instead of bottling up issues. Keeping things inside and to yourself only adds to the stress.
The key to learning how to beat psoriasis is identifying what the main cause is and taking it from there. Work out what works for you, and then continue doing it!
