It's a Common Skin Condition, But What Triggers Psoriasis?

qsota.com
Psoriasis is a serious skin problem that alters the life cycle of your skin cells. In summary, it is the rapid build up of extra cells on the skin's surface, causing the formation of thick and silvery scales which are dry and itchy, often showing red patches that can be painful.

Psoriasis sometimes gets better and may disappear but then returns after a while, sometimes looking worse. It is said to be incurable and may even spread across wide areas of the skin. It can thus dampen your self confidence.

Some Vital Info

But there are ways to get some  relief, like cortisone creams (ask your doctor about it) and exposure to gentle sunlight in the early mornings. 

It's said to be a common skin condition, so if you're affected remember that lots of other people have it, too--especially those between 15 to 35. 

The exact cause isn't certain yet, but the National Psoriasis Foundation in the US said that some 10 percent of Americans can possibly get it through their genes, but only 2 to 3 percent of the 10 percent actually get it. So it's not that rampant. Yet, it poses a real problem to those who do have it.

Psoriasis Trigger

But take note--among the main triggers for psoriasis are too much stress and tension. If you want relief or probable prevention, stay relaxed at all times. Avoid too much stress as much as possible. And exercise regularly to reduce stress and to get you a healthy fit life and wellness.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits?

Up to now, I see lots of folks who do not know the right way of eating fruits. I hate to see good, fresh fruits all go to waste and worse, actually harm the body.

Sometimes, I even see supposedly health buffs eat fruits the wrong way. And I'm shocked. I'd like to share with them the right way to eat fruits but I dread offending them---they're supposed to be experts.

Fresh fruits are good, to be sure. But if eaten wrongly they can rot in the intestine and actually produce deadly toxins there, ruining your health instead of helping it. Imagine buying costly fresh fruits only to poison your body with it.

Always remember this---eat fresh fruits first. Always. Before you put anything in your tummy, put fresh fruits first. And then eat your veggies. And then your fish and meat. A lot of people treat fruits as dessert---which is dead wrong.

Why?

If you eat fish and meat first (and fruits later), these things take 72 hours (3 days) to digest. So, if fruits wait last in line, they…
