I’ve worked with psoriatic arthritis and psoriasis for years. Many of the topical treatments used by dermatologists to manage psoriasis are antifungal. I find that quite interesting given the association between Candida and the disease. Usually, the primary treatments for psoriasis are suppressive medications like steroids and methotrexate. Yet, according to the National Psoriasis Foundation, well over half of psoriasis patients are unsatisfied with conventional medical treatments. Many psoriasis patients have turned to natural treatment options. A Candida cleanse can help significantly with psoriasis. We know through research that around 65% of people with psoriasis have Candida. In fact, when I get a psoriasis patient, the first thing I determine is their level of Candida because they usually know they’ve got a gut problem. In nearly all cases, a patient with psoriasis will have a functional digestive problem.

If you have psoriasis, I strongly recommend that you do a comprehensive stool analysis. If you have an autoimmune problem like psoriasis, you need to determine what’s going on in the gut exactly. Remember, the small bowel is the seat of the body’s immune system. Only by identifying the problems in the GI tract, can you select the right treatment.
If you have psoriasis, a Candida cleanse can initially worsen your symptoms. Your body’s going to be throwing off lots of toxins that it has accumulated in the skin and deeper down. However, eventually the skin aggravation will die down as the detoxification process proceeds. I’ve had many psoriasis patients achieve remarkable results from a Candida cleanse.
