3 Natural Approaches to Improving Psoriasis

3 Natural Approaches to Improving Psoriasis


Hey, Dr. Osborne here. Today, we have a question from Denise. Denise wants to know what she can do naturally
help her psoriasis. She’s been already to five dermatologists
and not getting much relief. Let’s talk about some simple strategies that
might be really helpful. Strategy number one, sunshine. Vitamin D’s very, very important for the health
of the skin, and a lot of dermatologists have scared people out of the sun and said avoid
it because it causes skin cancer, even though that’s not really true. Sunburning causes skin cancer. Sunshine does not. Getting more sunshine to the limit of your
skin’s ability to tolerate it. If you’re a fair redhead, don’t go bake on
the beach for two hours, but get the sunlight that your skin tolerates without burning and
get it on a daily basis. Don’t save it up for the weekend. Get it on a daily basis, so sunshine. Number two, struggling with psoriasis? Have your doctor, your functional medicine
doctor preferably, check your vitamin and mineral status. Why a functional medicine doctor? Because they’re trained in nutrition. Traditional docs are not trained in nutrition. Generally, they don’t have the advanced training
or the knowledge to be able to help you with nutrition. Functional docs do. You want to know with psoriasis particularly
about zinc, about vitamin A, about vitamin E, about vitamin C, about certain B vitamins
like niacin or vitamin B-3 because deficiencies of these nutrients can actually contribute
to inflammation of the skin. You want to know whether or not you need to
support yourself, but you need to get tested to do that because a multivitamin won’t always
cut it. Sometimes the multies aren’t a high enough
dose of the nutrients that you need to dig yourself out of a hole of psoriasis. Sometimes it takes a stronger dose. Number three is diet change. With psoriasis, I’ve not yet seen in 20 years
a person who responded with any type of supplement, anti-inflammatories or anything regarded to
helping with psoriasis, unless they changed their diet too. What’s the best diet for psoriasis? Go pick up a copy of No Grain, No Pain if
you haven’t already. In chapters eight and nine, there’s a 30-day
protocol that you can follow toward healthier skin. Grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free is just
a start. You’ll want to look at some of the additional
food restrictions that we’ve created in No Grain, No Pain based on my 20 years of clinical
experience and helping people with autoimmunity find real natural health solutions to their
problem. Hopefully that’s helpful for you. Look, if you’ve got a question you’d like
