PSA

Hello

I am borderriever, from the far North of Northumberland, I suffer from full blown PSA that effects my skin in various places and my Joints and Tendons.

i am unable to take DMARD Medications and associated Biologics so I am looking for various other treatments. I have had various light treatments and other treatments, I have been like this since 1983 and now using many alternative shampoos and gels as I was finding the tars and steroids were thinning my skin.

I am looking for more informations on other treatments that can help.

Why not try boosting your auto immune system? I have found sprinkling cinnamon powder on my ceareals and having garlic tablets seem to help reduce my psoriasis.

Here in lovely Northumberland. As soon as you arrive here you feel so relaxed and chilled. We went for a little walk towards bundle bay yesterday. Then drove to Wooler and had a potter round. Hope the weather is the same today. Our dogs are on their elements.

Have you ever heard of seacret products? They are from the dead sea and have helped many people out with psoriasis. It doesnt cure it but can help a lot with the itchyness. Let me know if you want more info.

Yes I used to use the salts from the Dead Sea in my bath, the problem was it packet was quite large and all the salts had to be used. I do not know if that has now changed.

The salts for me did work and I actually went to out there many years ago. I had a infected toe and they would not let me bathe

Where are you getting the salts now ??

I am getting it online. You can check the website out seacretdirect.com/danielcar... I would check on black friday. Amazing deals are on then. I personally would buy the salt & oil scrub. You can use it on the whole body and it also helps with healing the skin.
