PSORIASIS is a chronic disease of the skin and the joints. It is a chronic autoimmune condition with no known cure. Autoimmune conditions are the result of the body attacking itself.

Symptoms

Other symptoms include dry, cracked skin that has the tendency to bleed, itching, soreness, thickened nails, swollen and stiff joints. It is easy to spot a person suffering from psoriasis since the symptoms clearly manifest on the skin. Psoriatic scales are whitish-silver and develop in thick, red patches. Sometimes, these patches will crack and bleed.

Causes and Complications

Dr. Sonny Viloria, former undersecretary of the Department of Health and now into integrative medicine, attests that since it is a chronic condition, psoriasis is usually triggered by different factors like streptococcal infections: skin injury, stress, smoking, cold weather, alcohol drinking and drug intake like lithium and/or beta blockers.

Treatment of psoriasis

There are many over-the-counter psoriasis medications and treatments available in the market. But the conventional western treatment only offers temporary relief and do not eliminate psoriasis for good. Dr. Viloria, who's also a firm believer in integrative medicine, said, "If you want to reduce or be rid of psoriasis, you need to consider treating psoriasis the natural way. Treating psoriasis with a natural alternative like the acai berry is a gentle, safe and efficient way that can help eliminate psoriasis once and for all."

New research has shown that many autoimmune diseases like psoriasis are caused by untreated chronic inflammation in the body. Doesn't it make sense that to eliminate psoriasis, one needs to eliminate inflammation? "That's exactly what Organique Acai Berry can do for psoriasis," affirmed Viloria. Testimonials have shown that Organique Acai Berry is far superior to any over-the-counter psoriasis skin care product.

One example would be a company executive who has been suffering from psoriasis for a number of years. The temporary relief provided by steroids is not enough. Through a friend's advice, she tried taking Organique Acai Berry and in just a few weeks, the itchy feeling and the flaky, reddish, cracked skin subsided. "I can actually wear shorts now," she happily said. Dr.Viloria confirmed too, that Organique Acai Berry is a healthy and natural approach to treating psoriasis. If one wants to try a more natural approach in the treatment of this disease, or to simply boost his immune system, one very good fruit that he highly recommends is the Organique acai berry.

"Because of the high level of antioxidants contained in Organique Acai Berry, one can enjoy optimum health-giving benefits that help in boosting the immune system such as weight loss, increase in stamina, cardiac stability and body detoxification."

Organique Acai Berry is 100 percent natural, with no chemical additives, no genetically modified organisms, no artificial coloring, no artificial flavoring, certified 100 percent organic by the USDA and is Halal-certified.

The "Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry" published in 2006, a review of the nutrient composition of acai berries, states that aside from the macro- and micronutrients, acai berries also contain a significant proportion of powerful antioxidants known as anthocyanidins, proanthocyanins and flavonoids. This combination of antioxidants links acai berries with the ability to impact adverse health conditions like arthritis, cancer, high cholesterol, skin problems and even weight loss.

Grown and harvested in the rainforests of Brazil, the acai berry is a healthy staple in Brazilian natives' diet. It is now lauded and considered to be a wonder fruit—a superfruit in the U.S. basically because of all the health benefits contained within.
