Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural
medicine and founder of DrAxe.com. 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
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
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, DrAxe.com. Just
go to D-R-A-X-E.com and search psoriasis or
