Natural Treatments For Psoriasis | Dr. Josh Axe

Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural
medicine and founder of In this video I’m going to share with you the natural
cures for psoriasis, as well as psoriasis remedies and psoriasis natural treatments.
I can tell you this is very effective. In fact, you can see improvements in your psoriasis
in as little as 24 hours if you follow the tips I lay out in this video. I know this works because I’ve done it with
thousands of patients. Even my own father-in-law had psoriasis and saw a 98% improvement in
just 30 days by following this advice. In fact, my father-in-law was on 4 medications
for 20 plus years, diagnosed with psoriasis, said it could never be healed and we were
able to heal it through following the tips you’re going to learn in this video. So we’re
going to talk about diet for psoriasis, supplements and other things here over the next few minutes. So the number one thing you’ve got to start
doing when it comes to psoriasis is you’ve got to change your diet and you’ve got to
add in these foods. Number one is probiotic rich foods, whether that be yogurt or kefir
or fermented vegetables. It’s so important that you get to the root cause of psoriasis,
which really starts in your gut health. It starts with a condition called leaky gut.
By the way, if you want to learn more about that you can do a Google search for Dr. Axe
leaky gut and I have some great information there as well on that. But again, psoriasis starts in the gut so
you’ve got to increase those beneficial bacteria in your gut. The best way to do that is fermented
foods, especially things like goats milk yogurt is one of my favorite, or goats milk kefir.
You can find that at your health food store. You can also find it at your local farmers
market, are the best places to find those fermented foods. So that is step number one. You also need to get more fiber in your diet.
Soluble fiber feeds probiotics, so consume more berries, things like blueberries especially
are probably the best. Along with that doing cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower and
green leafy vegetables like spinach and then seeds, like flax or chia seeds. They’re full
of healthy soluble fiber which increases good bacteria in your gut. The third type of food that you want to be
doing are foods high in omega 3 fatty acids, such as wild caught fish like salmon, also
mackerel is good, arctic char is good, sardines are good and tuna is good. But fatty fish
that are full of omega 3 fatty acids and other foods that are high in omega 3 fats such as
grass fed beef. You’ve got to get more of these in your diet if you want to start overcoming
psoriasis. And then, just in general doing fruits and vegetables are some of the best
foods for helping you overcome psoriasis. And then herbs such as turmeric are very good
at reducing inflammation, and well as dandelion is another great one. The second thing you’ve got to do if you want
to get rid of psoriasis is get rid of the foods that cause inflammation that you’re
consuming. If you’re consuming a diet that’s very high in processed meats such as pork
or conventional beef, that’s very toxic to the liver. That’s going to increase the symptoms
of psoriasis that you are having. So eliminate conventional meat products. Eliminate hydrogenated
oils. Get rid of sugar, sugar is highly inflammatory. And even reduce your consumption of whole
grains, especially when it comes to things like wheat bread and white bread or any sort
of wheat and flour products. Get rid of those completely. That’s essential to healing psoriasis. Jumping back, one more tip I forgot, another
food you should absolutely consume if you want to overcome psoriasis is bone broth.
Bone broth is high in collagen which actually helps heal the gut, which in turn helps you
have healthy skin. And the best sort of broth to do is chicken broth because it’s high in
type two collagen which helps repair the gut lining and also helps in healing the skin.
So again, I would get chicken broth for that. The next thing you want to do is take certain
supplements. Here are the top supplements you should consume for psoriasis natural cures
and treatments. Number one is going to be a probiotic supplement. Again probiotics help
increase those beneficial bacteria. Don’t buy a junk probiotic supplement. Make sure
you buy a high quality probiotic supplement. Number two is experiment with taking hydrochloric
acid, that’s HCL with pepsin. Taking HCL with pepsin helps you break down proteins and part
of what causes psoriasis is poor protein digestion. So when you’re consuming protein with psoriasis,
you don’t want to consume large amounts of meat. You want to consume moderate, about
four to a maximum of six ounces at one serving, but typically four ounces of organic wild
caught meat. And along with that you can take what’s called HCL with pepsin. You only take
those with protein though. You’ll start with one tablet and if you feel any warming in
your stomach you back it down next time in terms of the capsules. But again that’s HCL
with pepsin. The third supplement you want to consider
taking with psoriasis is fish oil. Taking 1000 mg a day of a high quality fish oil with
EPADHA can really support the body. The fourth supplement for psoriasis is milk
thistle. Milk thistle helps detoxify the liver. Part of what is happening in psoriasis is
overburdening of the liver. So again by taking milk thistle and other herbs like dandelion
those help cleanse the liver. Those also help reduce symptoms of psoriasis. Also vitamin
D is a key nutrient in overcoming psoriasis. I recommend 4000-5000 mg a day of a high quality
vitamin D3 supplement. And one other thing you might consider as well are digestive enzymes.
Sometimes those can also help with psoriasis. So if you can follow those tips, I guarantee
you’re going to see tremendous benefits in psoriasis. And from a topical solution standpoint, I
recommend you make your own DIY recipe for a skin cream. Basically you’re going to buy
something called shea butter online, that’s S-H-E-A, and mix certain essential oils, specifically
my favorite is geranium oil. So again, you’re going to get a shea butter, maybe a little
bit of coconut oil and then you’re going to mix several drops of geranium oil in there,
geranium essential oil, and then rub that on your skin. Also tea tree oil, chamomile
oil and lavender essential oil are also very effective for naturally treating psoriasis
and other skin conditions such as eczema or dermatitis as well. But again, make a natural skin cream and get
that on your skin. Make sure you’re getting out in the sun when you can. You’re getting
more vitamin D that way. I know that’s a lot of tips. By the way if
you want the written version of this, I have it written on my website, Just
go to and search psoriasis or Google search me and search Dr. Axe psoriasis
and you’ll find my article going over the top supplements, where to get them, all online
on my website. By the way, if you want more of these tips, make sure you subscribe here
to the YouTube channel. I’ve got some awesome stuff coming out on natural cures you’ll enjoy.

  • tissa john says:

    I am someone who believed that I had psoriasis for almost 7 years. I was diagnosed at the age of 16. My college life revolved around trying to hide my scabs. I tried all sort of medications from ointments to tablets then ayurvedic medications, nothing worked. But 6 months ago I visited a village poison expert of sorts who after seeing my scabs claimed that my skin condition is not psoriasis but spider bite reaction. When I heard his claims I was skeptical, but decided to give it a try. Lo and behold I am totally cured now. He claimed that for most people who is diagnosed with psoriasis , it may not be the case. I just wanted to share my story here.

  • YorkGod1 says:

    Ive tried loads of "cures" for Psoriasis, but they all never ever seem to work. The best methods to help calm it down for me is getting sunburnt, Argon oil cream and drinking natural juices  with kale/avocado or spinach in them.

  • Caitlin Wai says:

    This is totally wrong being a sufferer myself from severe eczema, every dermatologist I’ve been to the most basic things they say to stay away from is dairy, gluten, sugar. I grew out of my eczema by having an alkaline diet and staying away from these foods. I know psoriasis is different but the foods to avoid are actually the same. Being born with eczema and suffering my entire life I’m always curious to see what these types of videos say. All these oils he’s talking about can be very beneficial however can also extremely irritate the skin if your allergic. I would go putting random oils on my skin unless I know if I’m allergic to them or not.

  • Taino Tribes says:

    Dairy is bad for you

  • Eduardo Arizmendi says:

    On medication for 30 years. That’s what Big pharma wants; to sell people meds that will on target symptoms and not cure the root problem. Why, all because of greed. We don’t need big pharma when Nature has a cure for everything. The reason why Big pharma hates natural alternatives is because you can’t put a Patent on nature.

  • Dejan Jankov says:

    the greatest results that i've had was by following the Swift soothe system (i found it on google) – without a doubt the best method i've followed.

  • Silver K says:

    I had serious psoriasis for 20 years and tried every diet and complimentary medicines as well as hospital treatments. It was only cured when tried neuro linguistic programming (NLP), a type of counselling. Had 2 sessions and was clear for the first time ever! Just make sure you choose a registered professional.

  • Enchantress Tarot says:

    Besides aloe vera juice, do you recommend, or see success with 1-3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, diluted in water daily as a drink? This is for scalp psoriasis, that I developed about 3 months before having a gangrenous gall bladder removed over 25 yrs is painful.

    you are the best. thanks

  • Janet Isaac Morrison says:

    go to a dead sea and soak 6 hours a day for 4 days. It totally cleared up a bad case of psoriasis I had . Drink lots because it detoxes and yet gives your body minerals it may be deficient in.

  • Britney Diane says:

    Maybe this video isn't for everyone.. since everyone's bodies are different
    You're suggesting a lot of meats, bones stuff, fish supplements. And personally- for me and my friends when we went vegan we were pretty much fully cured of our psoriases since we got rid of all the meats, dairy espically, etc..

  • Nur Azam says:

  • Andrea T says:

    My new Bible!

  • Lotusrk123 says:

    WARNING: Fish oil is a blood thinner and it caused me to have a repeated eye-bleed at the retina which almost cost me my vision in one eye. Also, DON'T take D-3 (cholecalciferol) obtained from lanolin from sheep's wool. It is THE active ingredient in rat poison and causes bone loss, heart attacks and dementia/Alzheimer's. If you must take small amounts of D-3 then take K-2 along with it as it directs the D-3 as to where it removes and deposits the calcium. If you are D deficient, get some sunshine or take D-2 instead. I had bad psoriasis on both arms and it was gone in less than 1 week by applying 3% topical hydrogen peroxide with a cotton ball. I applied every 4 or 5 minutes for an hour to 90 minutes. As it soaks into your skin it bubbles oxygen deep under the skin causing mild pain or itching which goes away after the treatment. When done let it air dry and then use good lotion to restore moisture. I repeated every day for about 4 or 5 days and all signs of psoriasis was gone.

Thanks very much I love your videos and I would like your brand to be selled in the uk

  • Farfallina Italia says:

    I have been diagnosed with Addison's Disease and my consultant has said that my failure to produce any cortisol from my endocrine glands is directly related to the steroid cream I have been using for my pustular psoriasis over the past few years on my feet. What is your opinion please? I shall be making up the cream you recommend as I now have to stop any steroid creams. Thank you for your advice. I look forward to checking out your website for more help ♡🦋♡

  • Bobbie Deligero says:

    Thanks, Dr. Axe. My nephew recovered psoriasis.

  • Sam Ryell says:

    Hopefully this advice helps. Psoriasis is so embarrassing… I've only had for half a year now and it'
    s only on the palms of my hands and fingernails. I work as a fine dining server so you can only imagine the frustration I'm having… it's getting to the point where I think I gotta switch careers. If you guys have any advice for helping to clear it up I'd love to know. Vaseline gets rid of the flaky-ness but it's so greasy and difficult to have on constantly. But it doesn't get rid of the red patches on the palms of my hands.

    Ok my daughter and I live a very holistic life. I was using all natural skincare and haircare products as well. Began having issues with my skin a little over a year ago. Itchy bumps on my legs that advance to my arms. It all disappeared during Christmas break. Then came back with a vengeance on my legs. Ive tried everything. More than one dermatologist told me to stop with fragranced skincare and that essential oils were horrible for my skin. I stopped ad nothings changed. A naturopathy friend of mine says its due to stress. Anyway, I am 50 and want to go back to my Origins skincare line but super nervous to do so. Is it true that these fragrances although natural are bad for your facial skin?

    What is the Recipe for the topical please

  • George Tullos says:

    De Axe, I have suffered from psoriasis all my life, following western medicine was the only thing I knew to do. However when they wanted to put me on Humana (which clearly states causes cancer). I said “no, enough is enough”. I started following your instructions for how to control psoriasis. Impressively, I’ve lost 32 pounds and the food isn’t bad. I can now say I don’t have any signs if psoriasis. The geranium works wonders and I now even make my own soap with geranium. I feel much better on the diet and using the essential oils you suggested. What is wrong with Western medicine these days. I don’t trust Doctors anyway, I feel like all they want to do is give you drugs. I’m a old timer and have always made my own cold and flu, sinus medicine, cough syrups…it has been a blessing for me to follow your teachings.
