Psoriasis is a common skin condition that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells. It causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful. This is a chronic disease that often comes and goes.
While the exact cause of Psoriasis isn’t fully understood, scientists believe it is the result of several factors, including the immune system. When you have psoriasis, your immune system is overactive. This creates inflammation inside the body, which is a cause of the symptoms you see on the skin.
The nervous and immune systems are closely related with neuropeptides and neurotransmitters serving as a link between the systems. (Psoriasis and Stress: A Review)
Emotional stress may influence the development and exacerbation of Psoriasis. The proportion of patients who believe stress affects their skin condition (i.e., “stress responders”) is considerably high, ranging from 37% to 78%. Stress may worsen Psoriasis severity and may even lengthen the time to disease clearance.
Fifty-one patients (39%) recalled specific incidents of stress within 1 month prior to Psoriasis exacerbation.

Common trigger factors include infections, trauma, medications and stress. Emotional stress (or trauma) can be brought on by any number of emotions, including: grief, anxiety, fear, etc.
Although a chronic long term condition with no cure, it can be controlled and go into remission. Not all people will be affected in the same way and doctors will class the condition as mild, moderate or severe. However the side effects of steroids and other medications exasperate the effects of toxins in the body.
While these treatments may help in the short term, they can cause rebound reactions which are more severe than the initial attack, or in the case of topical steroids, cause immediate worsening if the psoriasis is currently very active. Long-term use of these treatments can produce serious side effects ranging from advanced osteoporosis, high blood pressure (from corticosteroids) to liver and kidney abnormalities (methotrexate) and hair loss, severe gingivitis necessitating tooth extraction and fetal malformation (retinoids).
Why AcuDetox for Psoriasis
Our body is a reflex organism. This means that an accumulation of toxicity somewhere in my body will show up externally as a sign or reflex. The reflex of Psoriasis is then an indication that something inside the body needs attention. This accumulation of toxicity comes about from unresolved traumas and emotional stresses.
Psoriasis is a signal that there is something that needs to be healed internally.
