Psoriasis is crippling in many ways!

If you suffer from psoriasis it’s not only the physical symptoms that are difficult to deal with. The emotional part can be grave. The social limitations are quite significant.

It is not unusual that the disease limits your daily life activities. It might prevent you from living the life you want to live. Like going to the gym. You can easily get very conscious of getting undressed in front of people. You might experience that some people get weird around you because you itch a lot. You might even completely avoid activities and social gatherings, not to have to reveal your psoriasis damaged skin.

More than just skin problems

PsoriasisBecause psoriasis is a disease that alters the appearance of your skin it makes it  blotchy and scaly. Therefore many who have the disease also experience psychological problems. Especially young people may run into depression. Psoriasis affects your confidence and self worth.

What is not seen is that the organs of the body also takes damage from psoriasis. The risk of cardiovascular disease, inflammation of the joints and tendons increase significantly. As does stroke. It is therefore important that you get the medical care you need. Treat your psoriasis and minimize the disease’s physical, emotional, social and long term health effects.

For many it gives some comfort to hear that famous people suffer from the same problem. Ben Franklin, Henry Ford, CariDee English, Amy Winehouse and others, to name a few.

Within my customer base I have people with psoriasis. It is a pure joy to be able to help them relieve some of the symptoms to make life easier. Less itching, less flakiness and milder outbursts are just a few of the positive results achieved.

Last week I met with one of them, Catherine Näslund. She has found the best help she ever got. On her lower legs and ears it has just about disappeared! And even if it might come back, the period it is gone just makes life so much better. I will be back with more of her results in future posts.

If you or someone you know suffer from psoriasis, please share below how it affects the quality of life. Thank you!

Hi Stella, thank you so much for writing about this… I have friends with psoriasis and they are very self-conscious about it at times. They have had “some people get weird” around them and it hurts them a lot…

    Hi Sigrid, great to have you come visit! 🙂

    This is very much an issue of education. Apart from providing topical and supplemental solutions, I like to be a part of raising the awareness about theses problems. If people are more understanding and less scared it will make the situation better for those affected with skin diseases like psoriasis, eczema, rosacea etc.

I see many people with this problem and unfortunately they are usually so low that they don’t believe they can be free of it. But I have also seen people be totally free through changing their diet and including raw foods and juices – Jason Vale is a prime example and he shouts about it – so there is hope folks!

Great Article 🙂

    I think the “low” is such a back fire! Whatever the problem, never give up. Work on your attitude and always, ALWAYS look for new ways to make the situation better! Diet, nutrition and topical aids are available. Just because it gets worse every year they say its chronic does not mean you can’t put it into remission!
    I have some beautiful stories to tell! 😀

My girls dad suffered from this though not extreme, and it is a very full on thing to deal with. He hated going to the beach or swimming etc because of how his skin looked more than anything.
He found juicing really helped his body deal with it.
