How Does Colostrum Help With Psoriasis?

Few people understand what psoriasis can do to a person. It can be painful, irritating, can affect your self esteem and confidence, and can morph into other health concerns. 

Colostrum has been a largely unsung hero in how it helps with psoriasis. It's unique health benefits and properties mean that it goes beyond treating the symptoms of psoriasis, to treating the cause as well - with only positive side effects.

To best understand how colostrum can be used to help those with psoriasis, let's dive into what psoriasis actually is, what causes it, and how colostrum addresses these issues.

What Is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis appears as a skin condition where the skin is flaky, dry, bumpy and scaly. Although psoriasis is often thought of as a skin condition, it’s more aptly described as an auto-immune condition.

The auto-immune condition causes the white blood cells known as T cells to attack skin cells, causing skin cells to multiply up to 10 times faster than normal.

Normally skin cells would regenerate approximately every 30 days, but with psoriasis this happens every 3-4 days. This escalation in the production of skin cells causes a build-up of skin cells, as they don’t have time to fall off as they naturally would.

Signs And Symptoms Of Psoriasis

The most common type of psoriasis is plaque psoriasis which causes dry, flaky, itchy, raised skin patches which look scaly and inflamed. Skin may be dry, cracked, and even bleed. It may affect small areas of the body or large ones, and can be painful.

Psoriasis is most commonly is seen on:

- Scalp
- Elbows
- Knees
- Face
- Trunk
- Hands
- Feet

      What Causes Psoriasis?

      You may be wondering, why doesn’t everyone with a compromised immune system experience the symptoms of psoriasis?

      As far as we know the difference between those who do experience psoriasis, and those that don’t can be attributed to:

      - Genetics
      - Environment

           

          It’s common to see psoriasis run in families, but it can skip generations. Even if you have the genetic predisposition, there are things that you can do to change how those genes express themselves.

          How To Prevent Or Heal Psoriasis

          There are many pharmaceutical treatments available to treat the symptoms of psoriasis. These usually aim to reduce inflammation and scales, slow the growth of skin cells, and remove plaques.

          What they don’t do is fix the actual cause or problem. Instead, they frequently exacerbate the problem and may create new ones. As an example, steroids may create light sensitivity, and anti-biotics may further compromise your immune system and gut health.

          A more holistic and healthy approach is to focus on healing your gut and immune system, and reducing inflammation in your body.

          We recommend the following –

          - Lose excess weight
          - Eat a healthy diet and include plenty of green leafy vegetables and cis fatty acids such as avocado, salmon and olive oil.
          - Avoid trigger and inflammatory foods such as refined sugar, highly processed foods, dairy products and gluten.
          - Drink less alcohol
          - Reduce stress by avoiding toxic people and situations where possible, and including meditation, journaling, breathing exercises or yoga in your routine.
          - Consider quality plant-based supplements from a naturopath or similar. (Avoid synthetic supplements)
          - Be aware that wounds and skin injuries, strep throat, anti-biotics, mood enhancing stabilisers (anti-depressants), and blood pressure medications may trigger or increase the likelihood of psoriasis.

              It’s not surprising that many medical publications report that psoriasis is commonly associated with type 2 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, heart disease, anxiety and depression, stroke – as these conditions all share common causes. The great news is that they can all be reduced as a result of similar changes to lifestyle.

              If the cause of psoriasis (compromised immune system, inflammation, and poor gut health) is left unchecked, it increases the likelihood of these conditions occurring. There is some suggestion that it may also increase the likelihood of the onset of psoriatic arthritis which is often confused with rheumatoid arthritis or gout. 

              How Does Colostrum Help Psoriasis?

              Colostrum is the earliest breastmilk for a young mammal. It has impressive health benefits as it’s rich in anti-bodies, macronutrients, and growth factors. It's also a fantastic source of amino acids, vitamins and minerals.

              It’s a natural option for healing the immune system; and repairs leaky gut by coating the intestines, and balancing gut and skin microbiomes. Plus, colostrum is a super hero when it comes to repairing cells, and the cell regeneration process.  

              These qualities uniquely position colostrum to address BOTH the symptoms, and the causes of psoriasis at the same time.

              Using colostrum to help with psoriasis isn't new. It's been used for years, primarily injected with a syringe, or as a supplement taken internally as a powder.

              With the help of some of the best scientists in New Zealand, a new colostrum concentrate has been formulated specifically for use with skin and hair conditions. The allergens associated with dairy reactions and intolerances have been removed, and the colostrum has been condensed into a form with enhanced bio-availability.

              RENEW Skin & Hair combines this potent colostrum extract with organic inner leaf aloe vera to produce a scientifically formulated leading edge 100% natural spray for use on hair, scalp and/or skin.

              It acts in three ways to help with psoriasis -

              1. It targets the stem cells in hair follicles, and skin cells in the scalp and skin to absorb and distribute nutrients and growth factors, providing cellular repair for skin and hair.

              2. Once absorbed by the exterior skin, the colostrum then works to improve the health of the immune system, intestines, and gut. 

              3. It fights off bacteria, infections, and disease for improved skin and scalp health.

                 

                We recommend trying RENEW Skin & Hair for at least 30 days, spraying affected areas daily.

                Results are usually seen and felt within a few days for psoriasis on scalp, face, hands, feet, and skin in general - but may take up to a month.

                It’s safe for babies, breastfeeding, pregnancy, those with dairy allergies, and has no known contra-indications. However, RENEW Skin & Hair is not vegan friendly. 

                Summary

                We believe that it’s best to both prevent and address psoriasis by making lifestyle changes which improve the health of your immune system, gut, and reducing inflammation in your body; and reducing triggers known to exacerbate psoriasis.

                This lifestyle approach provides the very best long-term results for psoriasis, and overall health and wellbeing. However, RENEW Skin & Hair may alleviate the symptoms and appearance of psoriasis quickly by providing cellular repair for skin and hair; and accelerate a return to a healthy immune system and overall wellbeing.
