Psoriasis is a common skin condition that changes the life cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form thick, silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful.
Psoriasis is a persistent, long-lasting (chronic) disease. There may be times when your psoriasis symptoms get better alternating with times your psoriasis worsens.
The cause of psoriasis isn’t fully known, but it’s thought to be related to an immune system problem with cells in your body.
Psoriasis typically starts or worsens because of a trigger that you may be able to identify and avoid. Factors that may trigger psoriasis include:
- Infections, such as strep throat or skin infections
- Injury to the skin, such as a cut or scrape, bug bite, or a severe sunburn
- Cold weather
- Heavy alcohol consumption
- Certain medications — including lithium, which is prescribed for bipolar disorder; high blood pressure medications such as beta blockers; antimalarial drugs; and iodides.
The fact that psoriasis is linked to an impaired immune system means that by developing a strong immune system can help to alleviate psoriasis.
As the body’s immune system revolves around the gut, it is of the utmost importance to boost gut health.
We all know that certain medication like antibiotics can damage the good bacteria in the gut, but in most cases people are born with Psoriasis. We believe that a shortage of specific bacteria in the gut might be the cause of psoriasis and therefore we recommend the Manna GUT Support product which contains essential bacteria as well as digestive enzymes.
We have hands-on experience that the Manna GUT Support helps to clear psoriasis, especially one case where the person was born with the problem and after 57 years of different types of treatments, taking the Manna GUT Support for 2 months cleared his psoriasis.
