Psoriasis and Acidic Blood: The Cause Is Deficiency of B vitamins

Lactic acidosis is often caused by biotin or thiamine deficiency. The role of B-vitamins is still underrated by most people including those with psoriasis. We have a huge promotion of magnesium, zinc, vitamin C, … but where are the B-complex vitamins? I think that generally the most important thing in healing of psoriasis is proper intake of B-vitamins.

If you want to get all of the B-vitamins even those who are no longer considered as vitamins you should take brewer’s yeast or what is even better – beef liver.

Even though our bodies are able to synthesize some chemicals (including those who are no longer considered as B-vitamins) that does not mean it is not important or (sometimes) inevitable to provide them in the food we eat.

Not just that we need the minerals and other vitamins to make some very important non-essential chemicals but everybody is unique and we have various genetic variations (I prefer word variation over mutation) which may prevent us from producing or processing some important molecules efficiently and in sufficient amounts.

Of course, B1 (thiamine) and B7 (biotin) deficiencies are not the only possible causes of lactic acidosis but they are well documented. Overall nutrition is important and elimination of unnecessary toxins (including the various drugs) is advised.

Symptoms of Lactic acidosis

You may ask why I write about lactic acidosis?

Well, I believe that lactic acidosis is very common in people with many chronic diseases including psoriasis.

The thing with lactic acidosis is that it develops when there is some metabolic problem affecting the production of energy from glucose.

The symptoms of lactic acidosis include nausea, vomiting, general weakness and others.

    I just found this article after search for “thiamine psoriasis”. I have developed severe psoriasis after many years of struggling with ill health and bad digestion. I also have problems with my heart related to POTS Syndrome and PVST which I have read is caused directly by a thiamine deficiency. Since I was raised on junk food and soda growing up, I am almost certain that I developed this deficiency in childhood.

    I was just wondering what the connection is to thiamine deficiency and psoriasis , since I didn’t see it in your article.

    Also, I was shocked to see that lactic acidosis is related to thiamine deficiency since I have been experiencing burning and inflammation in my arms and face for well over a year now. Some internet searches suggested that it might be a sign of lactic acidosis. Now I am convinced that it is.

    Is there a specific test that I request from my doctor to determine if I am indeed suffering from lactic acidosis poisoning?

    Thanks so much for your time and information! God bless you. 🙂

      Psoriasis just like the most others chronic inflammatory diseases DO NOT have only ONE cause.

      But most of them share the same biochemical processes in the background, just the symptoms are different – Inflammation Causes The Symptoms We Call Diseases

      In one person it can be a B-vitamin deficiency (like thiamine) in other person it may be vitamin B3 deficiency, in other case it may be smoking (nicotine intake may make the nicotinic acetylcholine receptors quite unresponsive), or it may be choline deficiency, low bile flow due to gallstones, infected tooth,…

      Thiamine, specifically is involved in energy production (Krebs Cycle) and acetylcholine production –
