Ibuprofen: Barney’s Formula For Psoriasis
Psoriasis can be significantly improved, cured, cleared up or put into a remission if you want with anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen. Psoriasis cause is all about the excessive inflammation and Ibuprofen is one of the most popular anti-inflammatory drugs.
Usually it is a headache, tooth pain or achy back what makes you take a pill containing ibuprofen but the underlying causes – production of inflammatory mediators – are very similar in psoriasis as well.
This blog post is not intended to make you think that taking ibuprofen is good for psoriasis or that it is a cure.
I do NOT recommend taking Ibuprofen for psoriasis because it has some nasty (side) effects like – stomach ulcers, kidney failure and heart attack!
Ibuprofen is considered relatively safe only when taken occasionally to suppress the acute pain. It is not intended and safe for regular or even daily use and treatment of chronic inflammatory diseases!
The sad truth is that doctors are commonly prescribing it for joint pain which leads to further deterioration of the joint function because ibuprofen blocks the processes involved in repairing of the various tissues; including the cartilage.
Ibuprofen for hangovers
It’s nothing very surprising that Ibuprofen can cure psoriasis in a few weeks or months in some cases. It is a potent anti-inflammatory drug… and psoriasis is just a symptom of inflammation.
Even hangovers caused by excessive alcohol consumption can be significantly ameliorated by ibuprofen.
The off-label use of Ibuprofen for hangovers was mentioned also by Dr. Stewart – the head scientist of team who developed Ibuprofen in early 1960’s.
As you can see, hangovers seem to be just a symptom of inflammation as well.
Ibuprofen cure psoriasis in a few weeks
The use of Ibuprofen became fairly popular about 11 years ago when user with nickname bjmacc shared his experiences with the combination of his supplement stack + Ibuprofen on psoriasis discussion boards.
His protocol became known as “Barney’s formula” and was quite popular for a few years after.
one small multivitamin
and add to that
1000-1500 iu of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferal ) more in winter less in summer
250 mcg B12…….
400 mcg folic acid
2x 1000 flax seed oil
2 x 1200 fish oil
400mg calcium if you don’t eat a lot of dairy cheese etc…
200 mg ibuprofen in the evening with water or fluid
If cost is an issue…then take just
1000 iu -1500 iu of vitamin D3 (not D2).. more in winter less in
200mg ibuprofen with water or fluid..
go for cheap…should be less then $.25/day
However, when you check his supplements list you will find out that Ibuprofen and D3 is probably what was doing the biggest job in healing his psoriasis.
I’m 58 and have had P for over 20 years. The last 5 years it increased in severity to the point where i bled so bad after a bath it would soak through my cloths .My psoriasis was severe plaque and some spots..hair,arms,legs and waist were covered. Severe nail pitting and PA in shoulder and hands. I won’t go into a long story on how i came upon this treatment but Ive been on this regimen for over two years with almost total remission for most of that time. Last winter i went off the formula and within 2-3 months i had returned to full blown psoriasis. I know this works and believe it will help almost anyone who tries it. I will answer any questions i can.

You know as I always say it does not matter where you cut off that inflammatory pathway if the result is less inflammation, less hypercoagulation, better nervous system function and shift to rest-repair-digest state
