Psoriasis is a skin condition that can affect people of any age. It affects women and men at about the same rate. Thickened skin, itchiness, and flaking of skin are all symptoms but many find it embarrassing and simply uncomfortable.
It is thought that it is a result of the body's immune system confusing the skin with a pathogen, and attacking it, affecting its normal functioning. Around 5% of people who have psoriasis will get joint pain and potentially joint inflammation, also known as ' psoriatic arthritis '.
Whilst there is no known cure, wheatgrass juice can help in two ways, both by using it topically and digesting it.
By applying it topically to the skin every other day, it improves the skin's defence against the disease. Over time, improvement is seen in most cases. it seems to improve immune function, helping the body to fight the infection. Itchy symptoms decrease first, followed by lessening of redness and finally the thinning of hardened plaque-skin.
You can also take wheatgrass juice orally in the form of daily shots. With high levels of chlorophyll it helps cleanse toxins from our gut to support and repair our skin health, leading to clearer, less congested skin. It is also high in antioxidants which fight free radicals to prevent damage and reduce oxidative stress on the skin.
