Psoriasis is a chronic skin rash consisting of elevated patches which coalesce to form plaques with distinctive borders – a pileup of skin cells that have replicated too rapidly. As the condition develops, a silvery, yellow-white scale develops. Most commonly found on the knees, elbows, scalp, umbilicus and genitals. Most cases of psoriasis appear to be caused by hidden food sensitivities, especially to gluten – the complex protein found in wheat, rye, oats, barley, spelt, kamut, and triticale. Total abstinence from the offending foods usually brings complete relief. Supplementary essential fatty acids, such as those found in organic flaxseed oil capsules, also promotes healing from psoriasis.
