Purify Your Home
By 2013, my husband had been living with psoriasis for approximately 13 years. It was my daughters 3 month check up when she was diagnosed with exema. Watching them suffer with these skin conditions motivated me to do some research on natural remedies to help improve the symptoms. First I tried moisturizers like petroleum jelly and that didn’t work for her. Our pediatrician recommended we try hydrocortisone creams on our baby. Luckily I had a friend who told me that her pediatrician suggested never using that type of cream on children. I did a little research and found the possible side effects of using hydrocortisone cream: could cause hives, itching, difficulty breathing & if it got into her mouth by accident it could cause swelling of the mouth, face, lips or tongue. Well, I’m not willing to gamble when my children are involved.
As for psoriasis, doctors recommended coal tar, and other medications of which all had possible side effects worse than living with the symptoms of psoriasis (swelling of face, tongue, throat, dizziness, trouble breathing, decreases your bodies natural defensive response, irregular heart rate, trouble sleeping, slow wound healing, excessive weight gain, worsening of psoriasis, pus in the hair follicles, ect..) SERIOUSLY?
A little research in Google “natural remedies to improve psoriasis/exema” opened a whole new world to me and was the beginning of a new journey for my family and I. I started with homemade laundry detergent, and only used organic coconut oil as a moisturizer for the skin. We started making our own soap and shampoo’s. My daughters exema disappeared completely. My husbands psoriasis improved dramatically. This was only the beginning!
