I have suffered with psoriasis for over 44 years and tried numerous treatments. Sometimes it has covered 50% of my body. The only thing that has ever worked for me is to tan and try to reduce stress.
Recently, I happened to read different articles about the PH level in your body and how an acidic environment can cause all kinds of problems with your cells, systems and organs. I read that if ones PH remains unbalanced, overly acidic or alkaline, and undetected over a long period of time, it may lead to many degenerative conditions i.e.: cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and problems with weight gain.
I also read that researchers have made a connection between PH and diseases like psoriasis, eczema and acne. They say that "PH imbalance can have multifold negative impacts on psoriasis". They also say that "increased acidity in the body may create an environment that aggravates psoriasis". An acidic environment leads to toxicity which greatly impacts inflammatory conditions like psoriasis.
I went to the pharmacy and bought some PH test strips. My PH tested yellow which indicates a very dangerous acidic level. The pharmacist recommended that I try Vaasa's Buffer- PH+ a Homeopathic Medicinal.
I have been taking the capsules daily now for two weeks and my tests are now showing green (normal zone) but the truly amazing thing is that my psoriasis stopped spreading during another severe outbreak and in fact is almost totally gone right now. This is like a miracle happening to me. This has never happened before in over 44 years.
I also read that alkalinity and acidity of our system depends largely on the food we consume. After looking at the Acidic/Alkaline food chart, I started eating more alkaline foods and stopped eating the acidic foods like beef, coffee, and tea.
If you are reading this, please go to your pharmacy and purchase some inexpensive PH test strips and test your urine at home. It is quick and easy and you will know immediately if your system is too acidic or alkaline. Talk to your doctor about this too and see what he says. This is working for me and I want to share this with you.
Here are a couple of links that will explain this better than I have.
