 PSORIASIS

6 ways to manage itchy skin when you have psoriasis

If itchiness interferes with your daily routine, consider these strategies for finding relief.

People with psoriasis report persistently itchy skin as one of the most bothersome symptoms they experience. Itchiness can be painful, interfere with sleep and make it hard to concentrate at work.

If you struggle with skin itch related to your psoriasis, here are six strategies that might help you find some relief.

  1. Keep your skin moisturized. Dry skin is itchy and it can worsen the itch of psoriasis. Apply moisturizer daily. Use gentle soaps that won't dry out your skin. If the air where you live is very dry, use a humidifier to add moisture to the air.
  2. Stay cool. Being too hot can make your skin feel itchy. Use warm water instead of hot water for showers and baths. Wear light clothing if you're outside on hot days so you don't overheat. Turn on the air conditioning indoors to get a break from hot weather. Keep cold packs in your freezer and apply them to itchy spots for cooling relief. Some lotions include ingredients to create a cooling sensation, such as menthol.
  3. Don't scratch. Scratching provides only temporary relief from itchy skin. It actually makes your skin itchier because it activates the nerve fibers in your skin. If you find yourself giving in to the temptation to scratch, cover the area with confining clothes or a temporary bandage. Trim your nails so that they won't hurt your skin if you scratch.
  4. Be gentle with your skin. Wash gently, rather than scrubbing your skin in the shower or bath. Avoid harsh soaps that will dry and irritate your skin. Choose clothes with soft fabrics that won't contribute to itchiness.
  5. Avoid stress. Stress worsens itchiness. Take steps to reduce the stress in your life, such as making time for what matters to you and turning down additional responsibilities. Find ways to cope with the stress you feel, such as doing things you enjoy and activities that focus your mind on something other than your stresses. Consider meditation, yoga, and spending time with friends and loved ones.
  6. Talk to your doctor. Treating your psoriasis can help reduce the itchiness you experience. Tell your doctor how itchiness interferes with your daily activities. Together you might consider a new treatment strategy. Treatments specifically for itchiness are also available.
 

A condition in which skin cells build up and form scales and itchy, dry patches. Psoriasis is thought to be an immune system problem. Triggers include infections, stress, and cold.
 
The most common symptom is a rash on the skin, but sometimes the rash involves the nails or joints.
 
Treatment aims to remove scales and stop skin cells from growing so quickly. Topical ointments, light therapy, and medications can offer relief.
 


Very common
 
More than 3 million US cases per year
 
Treatment can help, but this condition can't be cured
 
Requires a medical diagnosis
 
Lab tests or imaging rarely required
 
Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong

Systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus)

The Bottom Line is that systemic oral enzymes help sufferers of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis and systemic lupus erythematosis. Enzymes help by slowing the disease process, and reinforcing important immune functions.  Although doctors in the 1800s first described lupus as a skin disease because of the rash it produces, it actually affects many organs, including the joints, kidneys, brain, and heart. 

The immune system normally fights off dangerous infections and bacteria to keep the body healthy. An autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system attacks the body because it confuses it for something foreign. There are many autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). 


The term lupus has been used to identify a number of immune diseases that have similar clinical presentations and laboratory features, but SLE is the most common type of lupus. People are often referring to SLE when they say lupus.
SLE is a chronic disease that can have phases of worsening symptoms that alternate with periods of mild symptoms. Most people with SLE are able to live a normal life with treatment.

According to the Lupus Foundation of America, at least 1.5 million Americans are living with diagnosed lupus. The foundation believes that the number of people who actually have the condition is much higher and that many cases go un-diagnosed.





Symptoms can vary and can change over time. Common symptoms include:

  • severe fatigue
  • joint pain
  • joint swelling
  • headaches
  • a rash on the cheeks and nose, which is called a “butterfly rash”
  • fingers turning white or blue and tingling when cold, which is known as Raynaud’s phenomenon

How you can help our Small Businesses Succeed on #Amazon

 

 How can you, the consumer, help small businesses succeed on Amazon ?

When we ask for "seller feedback" It helps us rank. Ranking means a lot because then we do not have to pay more to advertise. This economy has been crushing us for the last year. Not being able to qualify for any help from the SBA we have struggled with everyone from Amazon and the USPS to UPS raising fees. 

 


Here is quick reference to leaving us seller feedback. Put it into perspective- have had been selling on Amazon for 4 years and have only 56 reviews. That is hurting us a lot.

 

Simply go to your "orders" on your Amazon account page and then you will see this screenshot above, just click "Leave seller feedback" It is SO easy and takes literally less than a minute.

Fibromyalgia 


Before the 70's, fibromyalgia was most commonly known as fibrositis, where “itis” implied an inflammatory component. Despite the understanding of inflammatory pathways to pain, clinical research was unable to identify the role of inflammation in fibromyalgia for many years.

Within the last decade, fibromyalgia research has once again been focusing on the possible contribution of inflammation to disease progression, and is finding some new and interesting results.

Clinical studies have produced evidence that fibromyalgia is associated with the immune system’s improper regulation of proinflammatory cytokines that circulate in the bloodstream, contributing to the dysfunction of the central nervous system and pain-related neurotransmitters. Cytokines, depending on their concentration, induce symptoms, such as fatigue, fever, sleep, pain, and muscle pain, all of which develop in fibromyalgia patients.

These findings are uncovering new possibilities in research for fibromyalgia causation, as well as treatment options. Some experimental pain reduction therapies have been examined and shown positive results, correlating with decreased proinflammatory cytokine levels. Anticonvulsant drugs, analgesics, opiods and anti-depressants are commonly prescribed to fibromyalgia patients, but tend to carry side effects reflective of the syndrome itself,and many of which lack evidence for effectiveness.

Limited treatment options have led to an increasing use of systemic enzyme therapy as a means to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. Certain proteolytic (protein digesting) enzymes have been identified to have extremely beneficial actions when applied to inflammation and pain related to this condition.



It has long been known that people with chronic muscle pain or fibromyalgia have more fibrin in their tissues and blood. This fibrin, while initially helpful in the early stages of healing after an injury, can become problematic if the body does not clear itself of the agent after it has done its work.

Fibromyalgia sufferers experience micro-tears in their muscles from the normal activity of daily living — each and every day. But because the average fibromyalgia patient does not achieve and stay in stage 4 delta sleep at rest, growth hormone is not produced in enough quantities to heal these tears, which leads to more fibrin buildup.


For the most part, people with fibromyalgia do not have a strong enzymatic capacity for producing enzymes that break down fibrin. This leads to a buildup of fibrin, which over time catches red blood cells in a web of restriction. This fibrin causes a restriction of blood flow. Red blood cells literally become stuck, disabling them from getting into the capillaries to oxygenate and nourish the muscles where the metabolic waste that causes pain is removed.

The body uses fibrin to help heal itself after an injury. However, if you have poor blood flow and a lack of enzyme activity, fibrin will start to accumulate. If the injured area is slow to heal, fibrin accumulation appears as clumps of scar tissue in the muscles or at a surgical site.

Ultimately, if excess fibrin is present throughout the circulatory system, blood flow is restricted to areas of the body that need it most. Over time, the body compensates for this restriction by increasing its blood pressure. People with excess fibrin suffer from chronic fatigue, slow healing, inflammation and pain, as well as elevated blood pressure.

Proteolytic enzymes taken on an empty stomach break down these proteins into their smallest elements. The enzymes pass through the stomach and intestinal lining, and enter the bloodstream where they begin the process of breaking down the buildup in the muscles, connective tissue and blood. These enzymes bring nutrition and oxygen-rich blood that can remove the metabolic waste produced by inflammation and excess fibrin.

Serrapeptase has been proven to be the strongest of the proteolytic enzymes, inducing anti-inflammatory, fibrinolytic and anti-edemic (prevents swelling and fluid retention) activity in a number of tissues.

Using enzymes to clear your body of fibrin takes time. It takes years to develop webs of fibrin in your tissues — so be patient, log your usage and, over time, notice how much less pain and how much more flexibility you have.

#Excellacor #Proteolytic (protein eating) #Enzyme #Holistic #Natural #Anti #Inflammatory

 

 





The word “systemic” means body wide. Systemic enzymes are those that operate not just for digestion but throughout your body in every system and organ. But let’s take first things first, what is an enzyme?

An enzyme is a biocatalyst (something that makes something else work or work faster). Chemical reactions are generally slow things, enzymes speed them up. Without enzymes the chemical reactions that make up our life would be too slow for life as we know it. (As slow as sap running down a tree in winter). For life to manifest as we know it, enzymes are essential to speed up the reactions. We have roughly some 3000 enzymes in our bodies and that results in over 7000 enzymic reactions. Most of these enzymes are derived or created from what we think of as the protein digesting enzymes. But while digestion is an important part of what enzymes do, it's almost the absolute last function. First and foremost these body wide proteolytic (protein eating) enzymes have the following actions





Natural Anti-Inflammatory
They are the first line of defense against inflammation. (1,2,3). Inflammation is a reaction by the immune system to an irritation. Let’s say you have an injured right knee. The immune system sensing the irritation the knee is undergoing creates a protein chain called a Circulating Immune Complex (CIC for short), tagged specifically for that right knee. (The Nobel Prize in biology was won in 1999 by a scientist who discovered this tagging mechanism). This CIC floats down to the right knee and causes pain, redness and swelling are the classic earmarks for inflammation. This at first is a beneficial reaction; it warns us that a part of ourselves is hurt and needs attention. But, inflammation is self-perpetuating, itself creating an irritation that the body makes CIC’s to in response!



Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Celebrex, Vioxx and the rest of the Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs all work by keeping the body from making all CIC's. This ignores the fact that some CIC’s are vital to life, like those that maintain the lining of the intestine and those that keep the kidneys functioning! Not to mention the fact that the NSAID’s, along with acetaminophen, are highly toxic to the liver. Every year 20,000 Americans die from these over the counter drugs and another 100,000 will wind up in the hospital with liver damage, kidney damage or bleeding intestines from the side effects of these drugs. (4,5).

Systemic enzymes on the other hand are perfectly safe and free of dangerous side effects. Best of all systemic enzymes can tell the difference between the good CIC’s and the bad ones because hydrolytic enzymes are lock and key mechanisms and their "teeth" will only fit over the bad CIC’s. So instead of preventing the creation of all CIC’s, systemic enzymes just “eat” the bad ones and in so doing lower inflammation everywhere. With that, pain is lowered also.




And here we come to the only warning we have to give concerning the use of systemic enzymes - don't use the product if you are a hemophiliac or are on prescription blood thinners like Coumadin, Heparin and Plavix, without direct medical supervision. The enzymes cause the drugs to work better so there is the possibility of thinning the blood too much.

Serracor-NK 150/ 300 Vegetarian Caps Circulatory & Respiratory Support Systemic Enzyme Formula  Contains Enteric-Coated Serrapeptase & Nattokinase 


The benefits of nattokinase and serrapeptase in the treatment of veins is just remarkable. Both enzymes are shown to have a major impact on inflammation. Both nattokinase and serrapeptase are fibrinolytic enzymes. The blood thinning and oxygenating properties of nattokinase make it an appropriate remedy for varicose veins. 



This will really please hemorrhoid sufferers. You will be glad that nattokinase works well for hemorrhoids because they are essentially a varicose vein. Also the function of these enzymes are to decrease excess fibrin. Fibrin is what causes scar tissues and increases healing time.  




Hemorrhoids are swollen, inflamed veins around the anus or lower rectum. They are either inside the anus or under the skin around the anus. They often result from straining to have a bowel movement. Other factors include pregnancy, aging and chronic constipation or diarrhea.

Understanding #Fibrin & #Systemic #Enzymes #Serracor

 

Understanding Fibrin
& Systemic Enzymes


Fibrin is an insoluble protein the body produces in response to injury or trauma. It is the body’s natural response to recovery.  Fibrin performs important functions in the body.  Although fibrin has many functions, the most important include clotting and wound healing. One of the first steps to wound healing is the process of blood clotting.  The protein precursor fibrinogen is converted into fibrin, which forms a layer of connective tissue inside the damaged blood vessel.  This is a normal process.  To do this, the fibrin strands assemble into a net-like structure over the damaged vessel and harden, forming a “patch” or small clot to prevent further damage.  While fibrin is meant to work as a protective function, too much fibrin build up can cause problems such as:
  • A high level of circulating fibrin in the blood has the potential to accelerate scarring
  • Impede normal circulation
  • more serious fibrotic conditions or cardiovascular conditions
The human body produces enzymes responsible to support all biological reactions within the body. The different systems in our bodies including our cardiovascular, digestive, and immune systems, would not be able to function without the support of these proteolytic enzymes. Enzymes carry out chemical reactions necessary for simple everyday functions such as our metabolism, breathing, and even our heart rate. It is important for us to supplement with necessary enzymes when our bodies fail to supply adequately.

As we age, our bodies gradually become unable to meet the daily demand of producing enzymes. When this occurs, it is imperative for us to begin to supplement our body with the necessary enzymes to prevent havoc within. With the use of proteolytic systemic enzymes, they can increase the support of many conditions including:
  • cardiovascular and respiratory health*
  • the breakdown of excess fibrin*
  • promote faster recovery *
  • immune system regulation*
  • healthy blood sugar levels*

Good Health Begins With Proper Digestion
 
Specialized cells in the pancreas, stomach and salivary glands produce digestive enzymes. These enzymes, along with those found in live foods, facilitate the break-down of food that results in their absorption and the eventual production of energy. When we eat a meal, producing digestive enzymes becomes a high priority for the body, requiring a lot of energy and adding stress to the pancreas. Despite this effort, digestive enzyme needs may still not meet the demands of the body, and undigested food particles may remain. These particles can accumulate and prevent proper nutrient absorption, cause digestive discomfort, or worse, leak back into the bloodstream from the colon and cause toxicity.

There are a many causes of indigestion and other digestive disorders.  At least 10% of the population is lactose intolerant. Combine this with non-digestible complex sugars from legumes, cruciferous vegetables and cereal grains, abdominal discomfort, bloating and gas are inevitable.  Others consume far more protein than their body’s enzymes can digest, resulting in digestive discomfort. Typically, people reach for an antacid, which only neutralizes stomach acid and slows the digestive process. Yet, the true cause for indigestion has not been addressed. Digestive enzyme supplementation can enhance nutrient absorption, relieve digestive discomfort and promote overall better health.

Digest-GI (DigeSEB-GI) is a premium, all-encompassing blend of digestive enzymes formulated to optimize digestion of dairy, legumes, cruciferous vegetables, cereal grains, proteins and other foods. Digest-GI (DigeSEB-GI) includesalpha and beta amylase, invertase, maltase, alpha galactosidase, lipase, cellulase and a complete array of protease enzymes, all of which are designed to enhance the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, while increasing the nutritional value of food and reducing the discomforts of incomplete digestion.
Digest-GI (DigeSEB-GI) contains all-natural digestive enzymes specifically tailored to break down a broad range of foods into nutrients that your body can readily use. The powerful combination of proteases in Digest-GI helps hydrolyze proteins into smaller peptides and amino acids. Further, these enzymes are designed to be effective across a wide pH range throughout the entire digestive tract.

After about the age of two years, the body begins to produce less lactase. Undigested lactose molecules pass into the colon and are fermented by bacteria, contributing to bloating, cramping and gas. DigeSEB-GI supports the digestion of lactose, as well as casein and other proteins and fats inherent in dairy products.
Digest-GI (DigeSEB-GI) is also formulated to assist in the breakdown of carbohydrates found in vegetables, grains and legumes. Complex carbohydrates found in these foods are very nutrient dense but slow to digest. Undigested food is fermented in the colon, which can cause discomfort and limit the amount of nutrients made available for the body to absorb. The inclusion of two kinds of amylase in Digest-GI helps breakdown carbohydrates and assimilates them into usable sugars and starches. The complete digestion formula also contains HemiSEB®, a special enzyme complex that breaks down hard-to-digest components of plant fiber. Alpha-galactosidase breaks down complex carbohydrates found in legumes, vegetables, and grains, while reducing the discomforts of incomplete digestion.
 
*Digest-GI Dosage
Take 1 or more capsules with each meal, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
