10 Home Remedies That Cure Psoriasis

There is a lot of psoriasis home remedies that you can buy in a grocery store. Things like dried powdered ginger or turmeric, bromelain containing pineapple and antifungal papaya.

Just keep in mind that blood thinning herbs, supplements and foods are not recommended in people treated with blood thinning drugs!

1. Ginger

Thins the blood and improves the insulin resistance. Ginger is capable of inhibiting the adrenaline induced blood coagulation which is so important in hypoglycemia and when our HPA axis and adrenal glands are dysregulated.

If you understand how important it is to have good blood flow and oxygenation of the tissues then taking ginger daily will be a no-brainer for you.

2. Papaya

Just search “papaya psoriasis” on Google and read the stories.

3. Pineapple

Bromelain as a group of enzymes is the most important group of chemicals in pineapple we can leverage. Bromelain as a proteolytic enzyme significantly decreases the inflammation as well as dissolves the blood clots.

Bromelain also directly degrades the pro-inflammatory cytokines and inhibits the platelet aggregation.

4. Turmeric

Curcumin is the main active ingredient found in turmeric. Besides its antioxidant capabilities it also decreases the inflammation via modulation of the TNF-alpha production and thins the blood.

It also significantly modulates the detoxification enzymes in the liver which may significantly help to decrease the oxidative stress.

5. Cinnamon

The study on mice proved that cinnamon water extract significantly inhibited the serum levels of TNF-alpha and IL-6 compared to non-treated animals when injected with LPS (endotoxins).[1] These two pro-inflammatory cytokines are in the center of focus of researchers developing the anti-inflammatory drugs.

6. Fiber

Having the enough fruits and vegetables in our diet is one of the most important things we should keep in our mind. Fiber helps clean the small intestine of intestinal mucus and provides the food for good probiotic bacteria.

Even animals in captivity need fiber for healthy intestines.

7. Coconut oil

Coconut oil is no longer strictly a health food store product. Nowadays it is one of the most popular oils what makes it also one of the most expensive oils.

You can use it as anti-fungal supplement, for cooking, as a skincare oil but also as a carrier oil when preparing the anti-fungal mix of essential oils.

8. Garlic

The ubiquitous opportunistic pathogen C. albicans is sensitive to garlic; resistance to the broad spectrum of active principles present is unlikely so that its anti-candida effects may provide an important alternative route to chemotherapy.

Besides the essential oils like oregano oil, clove oil, lemongrass oil, cinnamon oil, etc… the garlic may be one of the best anti-fungal and yeast-fighting supplements.

9. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) is well known product used to improve the digestion and to fight the fungal and yeast infections.

ACV has the real fungicidal activity as the researchers proved.[3] However, I would not consider ACV as a major supplement for fighting the yeast overgrowth.

The malic acid found in apple cider vinegar helps the energy production via its supportive role in Kreb’s cycle.

10. Carrots

Beta-carotene which is found in carrots is a fat soluble substance so eating carrots or drinking carrot

    Interested in your newsletter. Wonder if you have studied nightshades with regard to psoriatic arthritis? It seems to make me extremely achy. I feels like there is a build-up of inflammation in my body. After 3 months of going off the nightshades, it goes away.

    Also get migraines with onions and garlic. Ginger and selenium gives me a dull headache.

      No, I did not study the connection between the nightshades and psoriatic arthritis specifically. I know that many people greatly improve on “no potatoes and no paprika” diet.

      It takes some time (in your case it was 3 months) to decrease the inflammation. The inflammatory cytokines are still produced by immune cells for some time after the cause of inflammation gets eliminated.
