I have psoriasis over most of my body and scalp - what can I try and what does it cost?

I want to try the fish spa, full body and any other treatments that may prove medically helpful.

Hi
Psoriasis should be treated by a medical professional. There are lots of different ways to help treat it. Start by looking at the triggers, stress, alcohol, certain foods.... Then consult your GP (or dermatologist) they should look at treatments like betacap for the scalp with capasal shampoo or another similar. If the psoriasis flares up on your body - diprosalic or dovobet are useful. If it is not responding to treatment then your GP should refer you to the local dermatology department for further treatment like certain UV light therapy and possible immuno supressive treatments like Sulphasalazine, humira etc. (these are all very specialist treatments).
I would be really careful if you are wanting fish spa treatment as psoriasis often has open lesions.
I hope this information helps.

Hi , Iam Julia rhodes of West London Colonics.
Whilst , perhaps not she whole answer, I have seen that people with skin problems of all sorts benefit greatly from having a series of colonics.

The perspective from the point of view of colon hydrotherapy would be inner beauty first, the external beauty follows.
It’s very common for clients to see big improvements in skin complaints with a course of colonics. Not surprising really, since the skin is in part an excretory organ, as well as the organ with largest surface area. When there’s internal cleanliness, external well-being reveals itself in the quality of eyes and skin. Soothing substances can be added to the colonics water or implants to improve the cooling therapeutic effects.

Depends how extreme your skin is really -l I visited a Hammam Bath about seven years ago - What a difference - in fact I`ve never felt so good! They exfoliate the dead skin first with savon noir, a soft oil based black soap, then use Rhassoul Clay to detoxify the skin, activating the lymph ( the bloods cleaning fluid) to draw out the impurities, re-mineralise and moisturize the skin, then use Argan oil , (which is non-greasy!) to retain the moisture in the skin layer. I have never felt so clean in all my life and have continued using this system to this day! The old systems are just the best

Hi - My mum suffers from psorasis and she has been using Propolis Creme from Forever Living Products and it has made an impressive difference to her. It has aloe vera and propolis in which is creamy and soaks in the skin healing it from inside. Hope this helps x

Hi Kari,
If you haven't done these already, I'd recommend doing a series of detoxes for the liver, kidneys and colon which will support general health. These can be done every few months. Herbs for the cleansing of each organ are available through herbalists (I personally recommend the tincture herbs such as those from Vogel). Also, I'd strongly recommend ASEA. It helps to replace cells and regenerate them more quickly through the redox molecules it contains. However, it is not a quick fix, I'd recommend taking it for at least 3 months. Also, we've found that often there is a detox with ASEA as the cells regenerate which can mean a worsening of symptoms and possibly more fatigue. This can last anything from a few days to a few weeks but is temporary. Please contact me if you'd like more info.

I agree , detox , preferably with colonics is effective. Its the internal toxins which play apart in skin conditions. Its not all of the problem, but some of it. see my answer on this space as well.

My mum used to have it quite bad all over her body and used to wake up screaming where the skin had cracked. Although this is nothing to do with treatments as such, I'd though I'd share what products she uses at home. After many years of trial and error, she now has her own 'spa days' at home where she uses T-Gel shampoo (available from Boots, Sain, Savers etc) that has tar in to help her scalp, and swears by the Dead Sea range from Boots on her body. Good old Nivea works really well with her skin too so she uses that on her face, as well as an at-home sun lamp for when it gets really bad. I think the whole process is a case of testing, testing and more testing to see what suits your skin. Sorry couldn't help any more!

Over 1m people will search theses terms & words ever month
it's estimated theirs over 20 million effected in the UK with such skin problems
That’s 20 million the doctors have not been able to help
20 million adults & children which have not found anything to help
How many who use our products say they worked
Well it’s about 98%
And how many still suffer who don’t use our products
that’s the rest because they don’t try them
It’s said that people don’t want to know why, they just want to clear it
But to clear it you need to understand chemistry and why it affects you
That’s certainly something the doctors don’t know
Let us let you into a little bit of chemistry knowledge
Nearly all of what you wash with
Nearly all what you put on your skin i.e. lotions creams etc
is jam packed, full to the brim with chemicals which your skin cells absolutely hate
What are these chemicals..... well think
Anti freezes, Oven cleaner, Synthetic Petro Chemicals and often simple everyday petrol ie paraffin (you will see them all listed on the back of your bottles of what you use)
and that’s even the ones from the doctor or chemist

I have psoriasis on my knees & elbows and when I have a flair up I treat it with a chemical peel which seems to stop it in it's tracks.

Hi, Fish spa's are ideal as long and the skin is not broken anywhere. Tanning booths are also reported to have positive effects on psoriosis but obviously carry other risks. Speak with your doctor regarding injections. I have a friend who goes to the hospital for an injection every few months and she has seen a massive improvement. She used to get it under her nails, scalp and intimate areas and not says she just get the odd small patch if she is stressed. I am sorry I don't know what the vaccine is called I just know it is relatively new as she was one of the trials but this is going back a year or so ago and i know she still has it x
