Psoriasis is caused by saturated fat deposits under the skin, in skin tissue and in the blood.  These come about from eating foods containing saturated fats.  Reduce these fatty deposits through the use of Lecithin powder (available from most chemists).  Lecithin breaks down saturated fats and cholesterol and can also be sourced naturally from the foods listed below.

Lecithin powder dosage:  4 – 6 tablespoons per day until cholesterol is reduced. (3 months for cholesterol levels of 1000 + mg).

Take 1 -2 tablespoons daily to maintain levels once they are reduced.

Psoriasis is also caused by the stripping of vitamin D from the system; usually brought about by taking certain prescribed medications, such as doxycillan and other such antibiotics.  In particular, those medications and creams which are cortisone based should always be avoided.  Incidentally, cortisone based medications and creams also cause rapid weight gain.

Supplements that may be taken which will improve the skin and aid in lecithin absorption:  Vitamin C, Vitamin b6, Vitamin A

Expose the skin directly to sunshine for a minimum of 15 minutes per day.
