What causes psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a pathology that results from a combination of certain factors.
- A genetic predisposition to develop the disease in 30% of cases (2).
- This is a autoimmune disease. When the skin feels attacked, it reacts by overproducing skin cells. Its reproductive rate is multiplied by 4-5 compared to normal. Cellular regeneration occurs every 7 days instead of the usual 28.
- A psoriasis flare-up is often linked to the nervous system. It occurs when the subject is the victim of stress or psychological shock.
We thus understand that this pathology involves the DNA and psychology of the patient. As a result, the disease varies in its manifestations depending on each individual.
Genetic causes of psoriasis
Psoriasis has genetic causes. To date, there is no treatment available to cure psoriasis. Science does not currently allow us to act on our genes. Psoriasis is therefore a disease that can be treated, but never cured. We then talk about whiten psoriasis. It is then a matter of eliminating traces, plaques or drops. Treatment of psoriasis is done naturally or with medication. The choice of treatment is specific to each individual.
Note that only about 30% of people with psoriasis are hereditary. For many people, the presence of this particular bouquet of genes that predisposes to disease is simply coincidental, or even unexplained by science. Psoriasis is a capricious disease. Its appearance and development varies from one person to another, without it being possible to provide a precise explanation.
As we will see in the following points, many drug treatments generate more or less restrictive or even disastrous side effects. This is why we will focus here on essentially discussing natural treatments for psoriasis.
There are few hard and fast rules when it comes to psoriasis. His treatment is haphazard. It may vary depending on the person.
How to get rid of psoriasis permanently?
Unfortunately, nothing can cure psoriasis. This disease is caused by a cluster of genes that predisposes to developing the disease. It is not possible to act on DNA. Periods of psoriasis flare-ups are followed by periods of more or less long remissions. This is why some patients can consider themselves cured of psoriasis. This is a decoy.
However, some people only have one attack in their life. It is most often linked to a psychological shock or particular stress. Considering yourself cured of psoriasis is an illusion. But it is actually possible to only have one attack of psoriasis in your life.
Simply put, getting rid of psoriasis involves eliminate symptoms of disease on the skin. This is also the purpose of this article: to offer you different treatments or recipes to help you make your choice. You can also combine several recipes, in parallel or over successive periods.
