Treating digestive problems is one of the most important natural cures and home remedies for psoriasis. Here's why you actually need to fix this problem first before you can cure this condition...
Poor digestion and yeast fungus growth are two very serious and potentially life threatening health problems. They are also two sure-fire triggers for psoriasis!
When you have poor digestion, food and vital nutrients can’t be assimilated properly or not at all. Yeast fungus in the body then releases toxic “candida buds” into the blood stream, slowly poisoning the blood and organs.
In addition, when you have an increase in toxins from bacteria in the gut and colon, the result is increased skin cell proliferation (cells that replicate too rapidly), which researchers now know is the root cause of psoriasis, eczema and dandruff. Incomplete digestion also creates compounds called polyamines, which contribute to excessive and rapid formation of skin cells as well.
So to cure your psoriasis, it’s absolutely critical that you get your digestion working at tip-top level and kill off all yeast fungus in the body. And the three best and easiest ways to do this are by consuming apple cider vinegar, probiotics and digestive enzymes...
Apple cider vinegar is one of nature’s most potent all round healers. It’s a super strong digestive aid, “natural gut antibiotic” and yeast fungus killer. In fact, nothing comes close to the absolute power of ACV and its health and healing abilities. This is one substance that you should always have in your house and be drinking every single day of your life... no matter what!
For best results, take one to two tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar (must still contain the "mother" apple) in a glass of water 20 minutes before every meal. Also make sure you splash a tablespoon or two over your salads as well for an extra supply.
Note: If you find that you really can't handle the taste of the ACV liquid, then it's fine to take the tablets or capsules instead.
Probiotics are needed to recolonize the digestive system with a much needed supply of “friendly” bacteria and kill off all yeast fungus in the body. Once the friendly bacteria begin to gain dominance over the bad bacteria (and basically "run them out of town") you will feel a terrific increase in energy and some much needed relief from your psoriasis. Just bear in mind that it will take at least 6-8 weeks for the full effects to be felt.
So when you purchase a probiotic supplement, make sure you go for reputable brands rather than the cheap brands. And never take crappy "sugar filled" probiotics such as Yukult (yeast fungus absolutely loves to feed off sugar, so it bewilders me as to why they put it in their products?).
For an extra supply of probiotics, also eat plenty of good quality natural yoghurts that contain lactobacillus, bifidus and casei cultures. In addition, it's also advisable to spend some time fermenting foods to give yourself even more probiotics every day (you can never have enough of these important little critters!).

Digestive Enzymes: If you have a really stubborn digestive system (reflux is a dead give away), you may need to take extra digestive enzymes. However, green foods such as wheat grass, spirulina and chlorella contain plenty of natural digestive enzymes. Of course, you will already be taking one of these powerhouse foods (from our 1# home remedy for psoriasis) so you may be perfectly okay with this. A simple pH test from a qualified naturopath or home pH tester will determine if your digestive system is either too acidic or not acidic enough. If you do need extra help then you can purchase specific natural digestive enzymes online or from most health food stores.
