well, look my friend... it's not about medication.. it's about FOOD, EXERCISE, ANTI-STRESS TECHNIQUES and THE BEACH.. there's NO other solution for this terrible Thing I suffer from and your beloved husband suffers too
I don't know from where to start as there are too much things to do!!
but let us start with the easy anti-psoriasis process
1- Eliminate alcohol, yes ELIMINATE, alcohol doesn't just worsen Psoriasis, IT PROVOKES IT
2- Eliminate all hot peppers, you can still use black pepper
3- Avoid the Nightshade Family: Tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, bellpeppers, eggplants.. they're known to trigger psoriasis and many people healed just by eliminating these from the diet (it may work wonders for some and have only an acceptable result for others, but in both cases it's pretty good)
4- The MOST IMPORTANT known cure for psoriasis, forget the herbs, it's about ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) many many many people cured by drinking about 35 MLs/day (or 1.2 oz/day) ACV is wonderful, and also you can spray ACV on your skin specially face, scalp, neck and chest, it takes 2 seconds and the itching is gone for some time, and with time the areas sprayed will get wonderfully better and may even clear up
Don't believe it? Google it, type "apple cider vinegar psoriasis" and read the wonderful effect it has on psoriasis!!!
5- Vitamins, vitamins and vitamins, from natural sources!! He should eat A LOT of green leafy vegetables full of vitamins and fibers!! squeeze two oranges each day and drink it!! don't eat bread for at least an hour after eating a fruit!!
6- an onion a day keeps psoriasis away, and it's the case for garlic too!! we psoriasis sufferers are known by all medical sources to have high amounts of toxins in our bodies and the intestines fail to manipulate those toxics so the last way out of the body is the skin!! onions and garlic are known as cleaners and very effective cleaners too!!
7- not less then 20 minutes of sun/day preferably while the patches are getting to the sunlight
8- summer is coming, so beach every single day, start out with 20 minutes the first day.. 25 the second to reach a full hour in about 10 days, let him put his entire body in the water and come out and let the sun dry all the water, then again into the water, and back up to dry, NEVER GET BURNED!! also Google it, the beach makes wonders!!!
9- Exercises, very important!! 15 minutes of soft exercises and 30 minutes of hard ones daily!!! when we sweat, the sweat keeps us from having a dry skin and helps relieve itching and has a hand in clearing up, the exercises also relieve stress which has 50% of the psoriasis, if you can control stress you can control 50% of the outbreaks!! Exercises also help in moving the muscles and not giving space for psoriasis to continue growing underneath the skin
10- Avoid sugar, sugar triggers psoriasis, said and proven
11- Eat WHOLE WHEAT ONLY
12- Avoid Meat, but eat a lot of fish, specially tuna and SARDINES, and eat lots of chicken too
13- Avoid foods with preservatives, as they're hard for the body to get rid of, imagine the case for someone with psoriasis who has problems clearing the toxins
14- he's a pharmacist, so i know he could mix this cream, VASELINE 50g, SALICYLIC ACID 2g, DERMOVATE (tube of 100g), it's really really good!!! it helps clear and i'm sure, it really helps me, twice/day to start wih on places that are really going bad, after a week once/day for about a month and a half, when the skin goes smooth, once/2 days for about a month and a half, then once/3 days for 3 months, for the areas that have quickly healed from the once/day stage you can go quickly to the once/3 days stage without going through the once/ 2 days stage, if psoriasis is still really stubborn don't switch to another stage, it it's still itching then you have to put at least once/day without changing stages, if it's going really bad stay on the twice/day stage, it might seem difficult now, but it's really really easy doing it, he just needs a strong will to become better.. it's effective!! i'm clearing up!! this cream SHOULD NOT be used on the face, neck, scalp or genitals!!! it's wonderful for the skin in other areas but these are sensible areas with fewer skin!!
15- STRESS, 50% of psoriasis, manage stress, sadness, anger.. if he has any, help him and tell him to avoid any stressful or sad situation, when i get angry it takes half an hour for my calm psoriasis to start itching!! and when it's itching it's really going bad!! praying and mediation helps a lot... avoid sad or tense movies, sad heartbreaking news, it may seem silly, but it has a bad effect on psoriasis
16- VERY IMPORTANT, NOT less then 2 liters of pure water/day!!!
water clears the toxins!! it's crucial!!
there are lots of things to talk about, i'll never finish here, i've learned and read so much, i have psoriasis on my right hand (severe) on my scalp (severe) on my neck(moderate) chest(mild) back(moderate) right and left leg(moderate) both knees(left knee-mild right knee-moderate) on my toes(mild) my genitals(moderate) stomach(mild)
after going through a strict diet and style of life, here's my results
right hand(moderate and clearing but it's a little stubborn now as it was clearing at first then came back!! but now it's getting okay) scalp(moderate and clearing up) neck(mild and clearing) chest (99% clear) back(mild and nearly 99% clear) right and left leg (95% clear), left knee(still mild but clearing) right knee(moderate and clearing) toes(99% clear) genitals(100% clear) stomach(100% clear)
although i'm struggling with stress and passing through some hard time with my family and relationships, you noticed the results, and can't wait to get to the beach in summer!!! your husband maybe will not follow the strict diet and style of life i'm following, but he can benefit from some of things, though i strongly recommend the strict diet and life, it's up to him to decide what to do, start by throwing information here and there about what you're reading to get him interested don't tell him everything at once he'll get angry about "controlling his life".. slowly get him the information and slowly stick to the diet, start buying Whole wheats, talk to him about ACV the sun and alcohol, slowly.. that's my advice.. he may not follow all of the things but here are some essential things that help!!
and now i'll give you the links of the strict and difficult diet i'm following that i didn't mention above..
I'm following the Dr Pagano diet, Dr Pagano has 40 years of experience with psoriasis and has cured ALL OF HIS PATIENTS by food ONLY! some patients had 99% of their bodies covered healed within 3 months to 1 year...
and read about ACV, alcohol and the SUN.. and try the cream i use!! and keep the idea that he can't cure in a month, or even see results in a week, he should know that it takes time, and IT'S NOT DIFFICULT, stay strong!
and take care.. thanks for reading, have a nice day
