Psoriasis (Psoriasis) is a chronic skin disease with a genetic component, widely effecting approximately 3% of the world population (just over 100,000 in Israel are known ill). The disease is not contagious and it appears in many forms: rapid division of skin cells formation from the basal layer to the epidermis layer. Normal skin cells take about a month to die, in patients with psoriasis, because of the accelerated process, it takes only 3-4 days so there is evidence of scales and skin lesions, reddish purple marks, skin tends to be dry, itchy, stiff and sore.
Symptoms of psoriasis include symmetrical rash, which appears mainly on the scalp, elbows, knees and nails. Location varies from person to person, and can change. The rate of chronic disease can be very slow and develop for years (the eruption and then relapse after a few years), but can also be a fixed rate. It occurs more among those with light skin and less for those with dark skin, there is no difference between men and women in the appearance of the disease. The initial outbreak of the disease could appear from 2 year olds to 50-60 year olds. The outbreak is most common between the ages of 20-40. It is caused by one of the following risk factors: stress, great physical damage in the skin (wounds, surgery), excessive physical effort, taking medication for heart and blood problems, mental illness (lithium), throat infections accompanied by streptococci, smoking and alcohol intake, obesity and exposure to the sun.
Naturopathy refers to people as a whole and makes connections between the external side of things and their deeper inner reasons, in the physical, emotional and spiritual level. Therefore, there are some important factors that appear in this disease: the intestines and blood toxicity, Candida, abnormal protein digestion, liver problems, improper diet and nutritional deficiencies in the body.
In fact the use of Moringa for patients with psoriasis help in several ways: Moringa helps in balancing the body, it disinfects the blood and all body cells, helps digestion, significantly reduces the damage to the liver, calming and stabilizing overall feelings and improves concentration and pressing problems. Moringa is a food that contains almost all that is necessary for the body including essential fatty acids like omega-3 and omega-6 fat contains fatty acids and most of the body’s energy reservoir. It was found that patients with the disease saw benefits in adding omega-3 and can be understood if we remember that there is an inflammatory disease and overwork of the immune system. Other studies have found that taking omega-3 alongside conventional medication significantly reduces the side effects of these drugs, such as hyperlipidemia and kidney toxicity.
