Scalp Psoriasis it is quite unsightly, and most people think you have dandruff…However psoriasis is much more stubborn.
Psoriasis is a difficult word to spell for many people…and is a difficult skin problem to treat for many practitioners!… Or so they say!!
For me in a clinical situation, from first-hand experience, I would have to say that Psoriasis WAS the most stubborn of all the skin diseases I treated. But, I also found that the patients who had psoriasis, were also the most compliant, and followed my advice perfectly. Probably because most of them had been down the road of mainstream medical community and spent a lot of money in skin specialists offices, with no results.
Scalp Psoriasis Vs Dandruff
When psoriasis affects the scalp on the head, it is quite unsightly, and most people think you have dandruff. They may even let you know about it!…However psoriasis is much more stubborn.
Dandruff is a fairly easy fix with more regular shampooing and the use of more natural hair care products, plus of course a change of diet and much more hydration.
Scalp Psoriasis is a more serious event. It may take up to 3 – 6 months to treat properly, but the good news is that within weeks, there should be an improvement. I did find that within the treatment process, there were ups and downs and it would come and go, however when it came back a bit, it was not as extreme…seemed to be the nature of the healing process for many.
…Some literature will tell you that psoriasis is ‘incurable’, which I believe is just another cop-out to say, they just don’t know how… When you’ve cured these so called ‘incurable diseases’ in a clinical environment, then who cares….it is curable to your patients and that’s all that counts…
Psoriasis of the scalp can also extend down to the forehead, back of the neck and around the ears, with extreme itchiness and dry flaky skin cells, falling off onto the clothes and shoulders. Many psoriasis sufferers will wear white, which doesn’t highlight the flaky skin cells on the clothes.
Is Psoriasis a curable skin condition?
Psoriasis is an immune response to stress…no doubt about it. Again, the stress response must be addressed. Some say that it is an auto-immune response, however, I don’t believe that the body attacks itself. The body is always trying to heal itself in the best way it knows how. It is no mistake. Some literature will tell you that psoriasis is ‘incurable’, which I believe is just another cop-out to say, they just don’t know how… When you’ve cured these so called ‘incurable diseases’ in a clinical environment, then who cares….it is curable to your patients and that’s all that counts. I always said, one patient at a time, that’s all that matters. In writing my book “The Skin Program”, my aim was to get the information out to more people.
I’ve always taken a 100% natural, holistic approach to the treatment of psoriasis and it’s always been ‘the turtle wins the race’…not the hare! Quick fixes don’t work and don’t last.
