At 8-years old, I was diagnosed with psoriasis. I was devastated for a lot of reasons.
The shampoo and soaps for my skin smelled like an old tire and were sticky!
The topical solutions were either greasy and ruined my clothing and my image, (who wants to go to school or work with oily smelly hair?!) or burned my skin as if it was on fire. Oral medications were expensive, and the injections hurt!
When I was young, these annoying healing methods were more comfortable to deal with and ignore. But as I aged, I began to have a lot of side-effects to all these medications. I began to realize that none of them were working and I was getting worse. My condition seemed always to be changing or moving locations, and the doctors always and still have the same advice and the same answers. (none.)
Psoriasis is incurable and causes massive inflammation on the inside and outside of my body. Inflammation can turn into severe ailments and lead to death. Our diet, stress level, and living conditions trigger our disease every single day. Someone with this kind of disease has a false signal in their body that makes its cells attack itself. Our bodies are always at war, and they have no cure as of this writing.
Some common everyday symptoms of someone who has psoriasis:
Someone with moderate to severe psoriasis will try almost everything to get rid of the nasty symptoms they have been living with. I did. Here are some of the most common side-effects from what doctors prescribe to people.
- Uncontrollable itching
- Severe pain
- Burning sensations
- Extremely dry skin areas
- Bleeding of the skin
- Cracking of the skin
- Low self-confidence
Prescription Drug Side-Effects:
- Upper respiratory tract infections
- Fungal infections (ringworm, athlete’s foot, and jock itch)
- Burning and itching (yes, the same symptoms I am trying to heal!)
- Sensitivity to sunlight
- Weak hair!
- and so many more! (Yikes!)
*and over-the-counter (OTC) at the local drugstore never seem to work
I have slowly been integrating my life into a more natural and holistic approach on the inside and outside of my body. I don’t believe there is a single approach to healing psoriasis. I will be revealing over the next months’ several ways to help heal your psoriasis through my personal experience and exploration of this widespread disease.
Today I am going to tell you the truth on what I have been so excited about the last week! I began putting our Primary Green CBD oil on my scalp 3-4 times a day and have noticed incredible personal results! Within six days, my scalp and my troubled skin areas are now about 50% clearer than they were before I was doing this. And there are no side-effects. My hair hardly is greasy at all thanks to the organic MCT oil we use in our products. There has been no burning, zero smell, (thank goodness!) and only improvements on a completely all-natural plan.
I am planning on adding more healthy approaches to my daily practices and will be sharing them with all of you who suffer the way I have with psoriasis and eczema and inflammation in general. I am so passionate about all of this after being able to clear up without all the pain, how could I not share this with all of you.
