Knowing that psoriasis is more than skin deep is the first step in reversing the condition for good. While most doctors focus on creams, ointments, and steroids, the root causes of Psoriasis are more straightforward than that and should be addressed immediately in order to shut ‘OFF’ the genes that activate inflammation for good.
The skin is usually the “bystander” organ, meaning it’s the victim of inflammation that is present throughout the body. The inflammation typically originates from the intestines, which contain 70% of the body’s immune cells. Typically, making the diagnosis of psoriasis is not very difficult, but understanding the underlying causes are. And this is where most medical professionals do a poor job. They are busy prescribing ointments and medications before addressing the root causes of inflammation. However, once you understand how the immune system works, you can easily control these risk factors and begin to reverse skin damage as early as several weeks.
