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.

Here's more on psoriasis:

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:

You'd be Shocked How Healthy Butong Pakwan Really Is

Butong Pakwan or watermelon seed. We've been thinking, all we get from eating it is salt (butong pakwan sold in small packs are salted for taste) and chewing fun to kill time away.

I used to just let the seeds remain in my mouth until I have sucked all their saltiness. And then I'd spew them all out.

But don't take butong pakwan lightly from now on.

Nutritionists claim butong pakwan actually has tremendous health benefits.  No less than the US National Institute of Health says butong pakwan is rich in magnesium which is important for regulating blood pressure and metabolizing carbohydrates which is good for normalizing blood sugar.

Butog pakwan also has iron, phosphorus, potassium, copper, sodium zinc and manganese which are vital minerals.

It's also so rich in protein. A cup of it satisfies 61 percent of your daily recommended dose of protein. The protein includes tryptopjan, amino acids, glutamic acid arginine and lysine. Some experts say added arginine may be good f…
