Being overweight is considered as a problem of overeating rather than a real disease which should be addressed properly. Gaining the fat from eating excessive amounts of calories is not the same as gaining the weight (fat and water-weight) due to inflammation as it is present in obese people.

Chromium May Be Effectively Used for Psoriasis

Insulin resistance, elevated fasting blood sugar, hypoglycemia – all these symptoms are common in chronic inflammatory conditions like psoriasis. Natural products like cinnamon, omega 3 fatty acids or chromium supplements may effectively lower fasting blood sugar levels via their positive effects on insulin sensitivity. Decreased insulin sensitivity leads to higher insulin production which in turns makes a whole lot of other problems. There is a report describing the negative effects of insulin on psoriasis in diabetic patient who switched from...

Ginger for Psoriasis – Thinner Blood and Improved Insulin Resistance

Ginger is one of the best plants which can dramatically help us improve our health. It is able to act as an antioxidant, thins the blood, improves the insulin resistance which leads to less hypoglycemic episodes and that in turn leads to less adrenaline flowing through our blood. Less adrenaline = less anxiety and less depression which can appear after some time of having too much adrenaline produced in our bodies. Ginger (Zingiber officinale) overview It is not recommended to...

Insulin Resistance is Caused by Infection

Insulin resistance is involved in most chronic diseases. It is not just diabetes or so called metabolic syndrome. Psoriasis and other “autoimmune” considered diseases are accompanied by insulin resistance, elevated fasting blood glucose sugar and hypoglycemic episodes. Hormonal imbalances are actually often caused by gut imbalances (SIBO and fungi with other parasites) which lead to inflammation. Insulin is a hormone which is essential for the body to regulate the blood sugar and maintaining the homeostasis. It is a powerful hormone...
