Q Have discovered that the rashes stemming from past cuts and scars are most likely to be psoriasis, not sure what to do now, are there any dietary/lacking of vitamin factors that may help to reduce? Or reccommendation of someone I should see??

A With many skin complaints there is an underlying cause arising from life issues previously not dealt with adequately. The body has surprising ways of getting our attention; it wants/needs us to be 'comfortable in our own skin' literally, and can use symptoms such as yours to spur us into dealing with things. The solution may surprise you, but is quite do-able with guidance. Curious? Check out my page; phone and/or Skype make it accessible anywhere.

A Hi there always much more productive to get an individual assessment but to get you started some general considerations;
a number of factors appear to be responsible for psoriasis, including incomplete protein digestion, bowel toxicity, impaired liver function, alcohol consumption and excessive consumption of animal fats.
nutritional considerations;
zinc indicated, insulin insensitivity so chromium helpful, B vitamins, antioxidants like selenium and vit E,A dietary oils are extremely important so fish oils results in significant improvement
mind and stress support always helpful to any healing
sunlight extremely beneficial
individualised nutritional/herbal therapy plan depending on presentation
topical treatment - dermasoothe lotion

A There is much more to physical symptoms that just physical causes. One really needs to identify the root cause of the problem and clear it from there. I have more info on my website if you are interested. Good luck :)

A Hello, and Happy New Year.
Psoriasis most commonly appears on the elbows and hands but there are many different types. There are numerous factors that can contribute to its development. Examples include genetic predisposition, allergenic food, "leaky gut", low digestive enzyme production and bacterial overgrowth in the gut. Stress (in any of its many forms) is often a trigger, or the tipping point.
I recommend you consult with an experienced naturopath who will do a thorough assessment to determine the likely factors and to work with you to make a plan to bring your system back into balance.
kind regards
Sharon
