Psoriasis

 

Psoriasis responds well to Wheatgrass!

 

With wheatgrass treatment, psoriatic patients have noticed SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS and only maintenance treatment on a needs basis has been all that was usually required.

 
What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a noncontagious common condition of the skin that causes rapid skin cell reproduction resulting in red, dry patches of thickened skin. The dry flakes and skin scales are thought to result from the buildup of the rapid production of skin cells. Psoriasis commonly affects the skin of the elbows, knees, scalp, and ears.

Psoriasis is considered a long-term (chronic) skin condition. It has a variable course with periodic ups and downs. Sometimes psoriasis may clear for years and stay in remission. Some people have worsening of their symptoms in the colder winter months. Many people report improvement in warmer months, climates, or with increased sunlight exposure.

 
Causes of Psoriasis

The exact cause remains unknown. There may a combination of factors, including genetic predisposition and environmental factors. The immune system is thought to play a major role. Despite research over the past 30 years looking at many triggers, the "master switch" that turns on psoriasis is still a mystery.

 
Treating Psoriasis with Wheatgrass

Psoriasis, generally regarded as being auto-immune in origin, often responds well to the immunodulatory effects of wheatgrass Spray. Daily topical application (I use the liquid spray) helps boost the immunological status of the skin and, in time, clinical improvement is almost invariably observed. Some extract is also absorbed through the skin bestowing an added bonus of improved systemic immunological status. This appears to be augmented by twice daily oral ingestion of the extract ( Dr wheatgrass Supershots) and the patient also enjoys better health and greater resistance to infection.

 

Clinically, pruritis or itch tends to diminish early (sometimes in two or three days) followed by thinning and flattening of plaque over several months. Following continued daily application, lesions begin to fade and can eventually disappear or reduce in number or size. Patients generally find that in time they can apply the extract on a needs basis rather than every day.

 

I recommend that treatment be continued for at least six to twelve months. So far, all my psoriatic patients have noticed significant improvement in this time, and only maintenance treatment on a needs basis has been all that was usually required. Many patients are eventually able to dispense with both oral medication and topical pharmaceuticals.

 
Case Studies
 
Case Study 1 - Psoriasis 20 years

Psoriasis in a 63 yo male present for 20 years. Numerous topical applications, UV, cortisone injections with little, if any improvement over the years except in summer. The photograph on the left (after one month's treatment with wheatgrass Skin Recovery Spray twice daily) shows thick plaque, heavy scale formation and rough, thickened edges around lesions. By this stage, the patient's itch had significantly improved, and only required occasional topical steroid application.

Centre (6 months treatment), plaque visibly thinner, lesions flattening and spreading, pinkish skin colour returning to lesion surface and edges more clearly defined. Most noticeable are the numerous "skin lines" forming, a sign that I believe shows that skin "normalisation" has begun. More "pseudolesions" have appeared, but these tend to become pale and disappear in time. At this stage, the patient's genital psoriasis, present for many years, had largely resolved. Right (9 months treatment) Lesions flatter and fading, approaching normal skin colour. Significant improvement in appearance of lesions over treatment period.

From Patent

At this point I really don't care what any of the skeptics have to say. I know what I am experiencing and I am more encouraged by the progress than I have been in many years. I am very greatly in your debt for your interest and for giving me a chance to try the wheatgrass.

 

As I have told you before, even my dermatologist (who is one of the most respected in Iowa) has said in the past that I have been the hardest case to treat he has ever seen. He has had patients with more and wider spread psoriasis than mine, but they have responded to treatment much better than I ever have. He has even tried the cortisone injections with the expectation they would reduce or eliminate the worst plaque areas. They did not respond at all.

 
2 February, 2004 after 12 months' treatment with wheatgrass spray

I have now been using the Skin Recovery Spray for one year. I stopped using the three topical steroids I applied daily when I started using the wheatgrass spray. The first thing that I noticed was a distinct thinning of the plaques. Before very long all of the thick plaques were gone. I was somewhat concerned when I seemed to be developing new small lesions and the large one on my back looked as if it was spreading but with no thick plaque. Then I was informed about the rebound effect that many people experience after stopping topical steroid use. Through the months my large lesions have become smaller and many of the little ones have disappeared completely. I have developed normal skin in the center of the large lesion on left leg. I no longer have any thick plaque areas at all. My wife says she has not seen nearly as much dead skin on the sheets and a reduction of dust, which is mainly dead skin, in the house. She usually applies the wheatgrass for me because it is very difficult for me to reach the area on my back.

 

If my lesions continue to improve as they have been I look forward to most of them completely disappearing in time. Even if they do not, the absence of the thick plaque, the reduction of itching and the fact that the lesions no longer bleed, drain and hurt as they once did is a miracle to me. Add to that the fact that the wheatgrass contains no potentially dangerous steroids or dangerous chemicals convinces me that the wheatgrass is a winner at every level.
