Is anxiety a symptom(or side effect) of having psoriasis?

I saw a commercial and it said something about people having anxiety problems or social disorders due to psoriasis, but you cannot see anything on them during this commercial.

I also have a friend with psoriasis, and hes had bad anxiety attacks and still has anxiety, but you cant see his psoriasis at all…mainly cause he wears a hat a lot but still its not noticeable at all…
Are these people making a mountain out of a molehill? Or Is there something in psoriasis that triggers anxiety?

it is said that psoriasis is a psychosomatic disease. whatever it may be, the exact cause of this condition is not precisely known and more researches are going on. those people who suppress their emotions such as worry, fear anger etc have chances to get this disease more. but it doesn’t mean all people with suppressed emotions get psoriasis. but usually it is seen that people with psoriasis when relaxed, their symptoms will be much reduced. so relaxation is very important in psoriasis.Also, those who have psoriasis,when become anxious their symptoms may aggravate. all people with psoriasis can lead a normal life and it is not a contagious disease at all.

The only cure for the Psoriasis?

Hi All,

OK this is how I cured my Psoriasis. But please read my suggested book titles aswell as i think it is essential that you are also self educated about your particular case of Psoriasis as everybody is different and often respond differently to treatments (as mentioned in my previous posts).

Let me first describe what was my particular case of Psoriasis and symptoms: Chronic Scalp Psoriasis was my main symptom, also small patches on nose folds, ears and eyebrows (mainly during flareups). Also infrequent small patches on my lower legs and groin area. I also had a minor form of Gastritis/IBS which gave me constant stomach bloating. I also was increasingly becoming more intolerant to different foods (a sure sign of an intestinal imbalance and an unhappy Liver).

I cured my Psoriasis by working both from the outside aswell as the inside as follows-:

Outside (external treatment): Regular application of healing cream to Psoriasis spots (2 or 3 times a day). Also use only Natural shower gels and shampoos that do not contain Sodium Laureth Sulfate (most good health shops stock this). SLS is a harsh detergent that will only slow your healing process.

Ingredients: 2 Parts pure Aloe Vera Gel, 1 part Jojoba Oil, enough to fill a small 50ml/50g jar. Then add the contents of a punctured capsule that contains either liquid Vitamin A as Retynil Acetate or Palmitate (ask your pharmacy), or simply fish liver oil as this also contains pure Vitamin A&D (the smelly option). Also add a few drops of pure tea tree oil to the preparation. Keep a jar handy for regular use. Once your patches disappear you can use the same cream but without the Vitamin A as a maintenance cream. Or the Body Shop Aloe Vera daily soothing moisture cream is a surprisingly good maintenance cream aswell. A Great face cream too!

Scalp Psoriasis: You should apply this preparation once to your scalp and wash it out in the evening. It is a very light gel cream that is easy to apply even to the scalp and simply looks like you have used a wet look hair gel. Wash it out with an organic Apple Cider Vinegar before using an all natural shampoo that does not contain SLS (most health shops stock these types of shampoos. Avalon is a good choice). Apple Cider Vinegar is great for killing the yeast fungus on your scalp and restoring your natural acid mantle. It is also incredibly effective against dandruff and much better then any commercial product like Head & Shoulders. The first week you should use it every other day and then just once a week after that or when your scalp feels itchy or flaky. Directions: Apply about a cup full of Apple Cider Vinegar to your scalp (use an empty water bottle and make a hole in the cap) and gently massage it in to your scalp (you can add some clove oil and/or tea tree oil to cover up the smell on your hair). Then cover it up with a towel or plastic hair cap and let it sit on your scalp for between 1/2 to 1 hour. The longer the better depending on your time available before rinsing out.

Inside (Internal Treatment):

1.Liver Cleansing Diet
2.Anti-Bacterial, Fungus & protozoa course
3.Juice Fast Weekend
4.Immune restoring diet course

Using Liver Tonic and natural organic multi-vitamin tonic

All with regular exercise and massage to help toxin elimination

Week 1&2: Liver/Blood cleansing and elimination diet:

Wake up: Two glasses of warm water (not too hot) with a squeeze of lime or lemon juice in the second glass.

Then 2 capsules of Evening Primrose oil

Breakfast: Fruit only- Apple compote (or stewed apple without sugar), Bananas, Kiwi fruit, Papaya, Pineapple, (no citrus fruits).
=> If you are prone to a sensitive stomach or some form of IBS then stew your fruit first by simply cooking on low heat in a saucepan with a cover for about 10mins with a little water (this will avoid the raw Cellulose and starches irritating your system)

Teas: Lots of Camomile, Peppermint with honey teas during the day

Lunch: Liver green salads (which include: Cress, Lambs lettuce, Parley, Raw Garlic) or cold cooked vegetables, especially cruciferous vegetables (cooked the night before) with a lemon and virgin olive oil dressing (must be home made).
=> IF you have a sensitive stomach avoid raw salads and opt for the cooked vegetables.

Teas: Lots of Camomile, Peppermint teas with honey during the day

Early evening Liver/Skin health drink- Home juiced: Carrot,Beet and Celery juice.You can add some fruit juice to taste if you like.

Dinner: Fish or organic farm chicken (cooked in lemon, olive oil and garlic sauce) with fresh ginger or fresh herbs (choice of: Dill, oregano, basil, rosmary) and steamed cruciferous vegetables (choice of: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage)

Snacks(between meals): Apple Compote (or sugar free Stewed Apples), fruits, Rice cakes dipped in olive oil.

Also use a good liver tonic to speed the process up like: Swedish Bitters (a world renown natura


This sounds much easier to do, and less expensive too, only about $1 a day.

This is a demo video to watch for the eczema cure as seen in Japan. It is not used in Hospitals all over the world yet – but as more people get this water then they will all see that Eczema is curable.

You can try to get free alkaline water – place a wanted add on Place a add to ask for 8.5 PH drinking water, and hope that the person can also make 2.5 PH water. Drinking the alkaline water will help, even if you can not spray the 2.5 PH water on your skin and hair.

I have been helping a friend get rid of his psoriasis’ on his skin, it covers about 2 square feet of his arms and hands.

He has been spraying on 2.5 PH water for about a month now, and it is working. He is also drinking 9.5 PH water. His wife has MS, and is also drinking the 9.5 PH alkaline water, and is doing much better.

Good Luck!

What to Expect From Psoriasis Symptoms

Knowing Psoriasis Symptoms

There are a number of types of psoriasis, and because of this, the way in which the skin disorder presents itself can vary. The most common psoriasis symptoms are the appearance of raised and red skin patches which are often topped by a layer or layers of loose scaly skin. The scales of psoriasis often appear silvery in color, but can sometimes seem yellowy.

Most people with psoriasis have the plaque form of the ailment, which is that described above. Patches of plaques or scales can appear in various areas of the body. Most commonly they are found on the elbows, knees, hands, feet, scalp, and lower back.

Psoriasis SymptomsMany patients who have psoriasis in other areas of the body also have it on their scalp, though scalp psoriasis can occur independently as well. The psoriasis symptoms in the scalp include thick, crusted plaques on the skin, often visible around the hairline. These plaques can also be found on the surface of the skin beneath the hair.

Common Psoriasis Symptoms

Another common psoriasis symptoms is the itching which can occur with the disorder. Sudden flares in the illness can increase the itching sensations. The placement of the plaques on the skin surface can also impact the degree of itching and general irritation experienced, and those which appear in folds of skin can often be the worst. Bleeding in small amounts can also occur, particularly when skin scales are scraped off or picked at.

Disorders affecting the finger and toe nails should also be anticipated as part of psoriasis symptoms. These disorders are especially common in patients with more severe overall cases of the disease. Yellowish colored nails with tiny pits appearing in them are signs of the disorder. Nails can also split from the nail bed as a result. Occasionally skin debris can buildup under the nails as well.

Other psoriasis symptoms which can accompany more severe cases include the presence of mirror plaques appearing on both sides of the body. Raindrop shaped patches can often occur in guattate psoriasis, which is a common form of the illness that can develop following a strep infection. Psoriatic arthritis is another possible form of the condition and is accompanied by pain, swelling and tenderness in the joints in addition to the presence of skin surface symptoms.

  5. Psoriasis is often a lifelong condition; there is presently no cure but numerous treatments can help to alleviate the symptoms that affect the victim.

  7. The scaly patches caused by psoriasis, known as psoriatic plaques, are areas of inflammation and over-active skin production around which skin rapidly accumulates.
  8. Psoriasis plaques usually occur within the skin of the elbows and knees, but could affect any part of the body like the scalp and genitals.
