Treating Psoriasis with Aloe Vera

Description: Psoriasis is a skin condition that causes red, flaky, crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales. These patches occur when the skin replacement process speeds up. What normally takes 3 or 4 weeks occurs in just a few days. This build-up of skin cells, or patches, normally appear on your elbows, knees, scalp, genitals and lower back, but can appear anywhere on your body.

Psoriasis affects around 2-3% of people in the UK, around 1.8 million people. It can start at any age, but usually in adults under 35 years old, and affects men and women equally. Most people only get small patches, which can often be itchy or sore, but the severity of psoriasis varies greatly from person to person. For some it's just a minor irritation, but for others it can majorly affect their quality of life.

It is probably a problem with the immune system, but the process is not fully understood. The condition is not contagious, so it cannot be spread from person to person. An added complication is that patients can develop tenderness, pain and swelling in the joints and connective tissue. This is known as psoriatic arthritis.

What can I do about Psoriasis?
If you want to treat your condition naturally, or in conjunction with a conventional treatment, you might like to try using our Aloe Vera gel. The gel contains dozens of different nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, sugars, anthraquinones or phenolic compounds, lignin, saponins, sterols and salicylic acid. Often these are the very constituents found in your medication.

How do I use my gel when it arrives?
Take a frozen cube of your gel and allow it to dissolve and warm to room temperature. Use this time to clean around your patches and hands with an anti-bacterial tissue. Dry thoroughly.

Apply your gel to the areas affected, rubbing it in and making sure you get right into any cracked areas of skin, or if the patches are raised, around the sides. Allow to dry in situ. This will only take a minute or so because the gel will oxidize and set. Reapply often during the day. For cleanliness make sure to use a clean cotton pad to apply the gel each time and disgard after a single use. This is to prevent infection or contamination of your gel. Psoriasis is not contagious, so you are not endangering other areas of normal skin, or anyone else.

This is solely to prevent any bacteria from entering the cracks in psoritic skin patches. Aloe vera is beneficial against both bacterial and viral infections. It also soothes the affected area and has a cooling effect on the skin which will help reduce further itching, redness, inflammation, and discomfort.

Special note: You do not need to use a new cube of gel each time. As long as you haven't contaminated it by dipping a used pad into it, you can use it up until it is all gone. Even with repeated applications, one cube should last all day, or longer, if you keep what remains in the fridge. This extends the life of your gel to many months making it really good value for money.

Disclaimer: Aloe Vera is known to be a wonderful cure-all around the world and back again. But it is always best to keep an open mind on both sides of the orthodox and natural remedies debate, and cherry pick the best solution on a condition by condition basis. Natural remedies alone may not always help to cure your condition, especially if there are contributory factors. If the condition worsens or takes longer than anticipated to recover, you are advised to contact your doctor. Normally, your aloe may be used along with any conventional medical treatment offered.
