August is Psoriasis Awareness Month

Psoriasis is a common skin condition that affects four percent of the U.S. population. Psoriasis is caused by a pileup of skin cells that have replicated too rapidly. It appears that rather than a disorder of the skin, psoriasis is primarily a condition that owes its origins to defects in the gastrointestinal tract and immune system. The primary factor appears to be an increase in cell signaling via compounds secreted by white blood cells on skin cells.

When you read the various announcements on National Psoriasis Month on conventional medical websites, do not be surprised to see the false claims that there is no cure for psoriasis and that the cause is largely unknown or that there is no mention of the link between diet and psoriasis. Everything in the conventional medical approach to psoriasis focuses on the use of drug therapy to suppress symptoms.

The effective treatment of any health condition involves addressing the underlying disease process – not suppressing the symptoms. In psoriasis, current medical treatments do not focus on correcting the problem – that is why the medical community says there is no cure. But, if you focus on correcting the key underlying defects by addressing the “leaky gut” seen in most patients, reducing inflammation with diet and natural products, and improving digestion a cure is definitely possible.

If you have psoriasis, get the 3rd Edition of the Encyclopedia to learn more about the causes and natural treatment. Or, check out the brief summary on psoriasis in my Health Conditions section.

Mind Your Ps and Qs

PQQ may be the perfect answer to preventing or reversing age-related mental decline.

kiwiPQQ (short for pyrroloquinoline quinone) is a vitamin-like compound found in plant foods that shows a wide range of benefits for brain function and energy production. Learn more about PQQ with the following Q&A.
What Exactly Does PQQ Do?

PQQ is an extremely potent antioxidant that is able to carry out the role of an antioxidant in the body more than 20,000 times—which is a rare thing. For example, other antioxidants, such as vitamin C, are only able to accomplish this “cycling” process about four times.
Are There Any Food Sources of PQQ?

PQQ has been found in all plant foods analyzed to date. Particularly PPQ-rich foods include parsley, green peppers, kiwi, papaya, and tofu. These foods contain 2–3 mcg of PQQ per 100 grams. Green tea provides about the same amount per 4-oz. serving. While these amounts appear to be sufficient in helping our cells carry out their basic functions, research indicates that boosting PQQ through supplementation can produce some amazing effects.
