Psoriasis- The Bigger Picture

Hello. I am Kristin Killops of Quantum Techniques. I’m going to talk about psoriasis. There are a number of factors that are crucial to healing psoriasis that are completely overlooked in most healing systems. Diet is a big one. Our skin is the largest organ of elimination in our body. When we are eating foods that our body cannot properly break down, or doesn’t tolerate, toxins are created in the gut and then absorbed into the blood and go directly into the skin via various pathways to be eliminated. When foods are eaten daily, it’s just a constant toxic flush onto the skin, which really both create but aggravates the condition. Nightshades are often involved in psoriasis. This is a family of plants that includes potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant. Many people eat them a few times a day, and they will only aggravate the condition dramatically.

Pathogens are involved. Psoriasis usually involves a fungus, but there are also different viruses and bacteria that glom onto a weakened area of the body, in this case the skin, and create co-infections, do you need to address all the different pathogens in the area.

Emotional factors are huge. The skin is, in a sense, our edge. Its our barrier between us and the world, so it’s not at all unusual to have very strong emotional components involving our, one’s relationship with the world, either fears or shutting the world out, many different things. Those can be looked at and addressed.

One key thing, is it’s really important to individualize treatment. Every body is unique and so what the focus of treatment and the parameters of the treatment, what various factors are involved, need to be determined and treated for that individual specifically. It’s really good to consider the various factors and address them. If you just come at it and try to kill the fungus, or use Cortisol, or some kind of cream to stop the inflammation, you’re not addressing what’s going on with the body. Although it’s a really nasty condition, it can be very embarrassing, very aggravating, and isolating, and it’s actually pretty simple to treat when the various factors are looked at and considered, and addressed.
