Dead Sea Mud is good for skin conditions, because of all the Minerals found in the Dead Sea.February 17, 2010 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #674341nachasMember
I have a dermatologist on Kissena blvd Dr.Frederick Periara he is located on 5114 kissena blvd. flushing number is 718-359-4425. I have never been to his office but I did hear that his staff are not so friendly but I know him on a personal level (long story ) he is very good and I know for a fact that he saved peoples lives by catching things early (skin cancer and other things not even in his field.
If you do go please let me know what you think of him.
I have a friend with very bad psorriosis and he goes to Israel and sits in the dead sea and comes back “cured” for a long time. If going to Israel is not an option maybe you could get the dead sea mud Like Ahava products and see if that helps.February 17, 2010 5:36 pm at 5:36 pm #674342potpieMember
If you’re willing to travel to the Five Towns area, Dr. Robert Bruckstein is a good dermatologist.February 17, 2010 5:54 pm at 5:54 pm #674343HealthParticipant
Here is a list of treatments -I’d be suprised if you tried all of them:
Treatments for more advanced psoriasis include narrow-band UVB light, psoralen with UVA light retinoids (eg, isotretinoin [Accutane], acitretin [Soriatane]), methotrexate (particularly for arthritis), cyclosporine (Neoral, Sandimmune), infliximab (Remicade), etanercept (Enbrel), adalimumab (Humira), and alefacept (Amevive).February 17, 2010 6:04 pm at 6:04 pm #674344YW Moderator-80Member
from the National Psoriasis Foundation:
Biologically based practices include, but are not limited to, botanicals, animal-derived extracts, vitamins, minerals, proteins, prebiotics, probiotics, whole diets and functional foods.
Dietary supplements. These products include vitamins, minerals, herbs or other botanicals, amino acids, and substances such as enzymes. Supplements can be extracts or concentrates and can occur in many forms, such as tablets, capsules, softgels, gelcaps, liquids or powders.
A variety of supplements have been used by psoriasis patients to control their disease, including: evening primrose oil, milk thistle, and oregano oil. Turmeric has been used by a number of patients but recent studies have suggested that it is not effective in psoriasis treatment.
Herbal remedies are increasingly popular and mainstream.
It is important to carefully examine the herbal remedy you choose to use, as some cannot be used during pregnancy or when you have a pre-existing medical condition. If you are unsure of the potential side effects or possible interactions with medications, consult a health-care professional before starting to take an herbal remedy.
Functional foods are a part of an average diet that may have biologically active components, such as fish oils, that may provide health benefits beyond basic nutrition. Examples of functional foods include soy, nuts, chocolate and cranberries.
People with psoriasis are individuals with different backgrounds, habits and medical histories, who respond to substances differently at different times. Moreover, people with psoriasis can have remissions that have nothing to do with changes in diets or treatments. These variables make it difficult to evaluate whether any specific dietary change is responsible for clearing or worsening psoriasis. The addition or elimination of one substance from the diet can be the remedy for one person and the culprit for another.
Some psoriasis patients believe that a wheat allergy triggers their psoriasis. Others have found success by eliminating red meat and fatty foods from their diet. The National Psoriasis Foundation message board is a good resource to learn about what diets have been successful for other psoriasis patients.February 18, 2010 1:30 am at 1:30 am #674345Minute ManMember
Thank you nachas and potpie.February 18, 2010 11:08 am at 11:08 am #674346haifagirlParticipant
artsy: I know Mod-80 is going to disagree with me on this, but I know people who have been helped with NAET. The trick is to find a good practitioner. They aren’t all equal. The one I went to (although not for psoriasis) is a chiropractor and she was excellent. Different practitioners have different backgrounds.February 18, 2010 2:18 pm at 2:18 pm #674347YW Moderator-80Member
haifa judged me correctly…
although to give NAET a trial, couldn’t hurt. who knows for sure.
