Psoriasis is a chronic disease that is found more prevalently in the USA than in less developed countries. Its cause is unknown. It is characterized by scaly, shiny lesions that break out on the erythematous areas of the skin. Although unsightly and irritating, psoriasis is neither painful nor contagious.

Specialists who treat psoriasis frequently, believe it is brought on by genetic factors in combination with several factors including diet, immediate environment, and lack of vitamins A and D. The lesions respond well to sunshine, concentrations of ultraviolet rays, and recently they have been found to respond well to saline rich muds of the Dead Sea resorts. (I wonder if the mud from the Salton Sea would work?)

The Aloe program includes an applied regimen of regular daily topical applications of Aloe Vera gel. Large daily doses of Aloe drinking juice, supplemented by a specific regimen of megavitamins and anti-oxidants. And with a strict all natural diet which excludes any intake of processed foods, “junk” foods, fast food meals, sugar or foods heavy in animal fat or other high LDL cholesterol. We also find that more fresh fruits and vegetables help the skin to heal faster.

The typical Aloe gel sold at the pharmacy OTC is single strength, fillet only. It doesn’t work I have tried it. Whole leaf has 5 times more healing power than single strength fillet gel.  Aloe juices OTC generally are single strength or 1,00 to 1,400 mg MPS/liter. Some have as low as 40mg/MPS/liter. Others have high MPS counts because they add maltose as sweeteners that are measured the same as MPS but have no healing power.

Aloe vera gel comes from inside the leaves of the aloe vera plant. It’s believed to have soothing properties when applied to irritated, sunburned, or environmentally damaged skin. The gel may also have antibacterial properties. Because of its soothing abilities, aloe vera may be helpful as a supplemental treatment for psoriasis. (1)

Creams made from extracts of the aloe vera plant can be applied to the skin to help reduce redness, scaling, itching, and inflammation. (2)
