Psoriasis is a chronic, non-contagious, multi-system, inflammatory, medical condition. It occurs when skin cells grow too quickly. Typical characteristics of psoriasis are red, dry, patches of skin and inflammation. It may reflect systemic inflammation. Until now, there’s been no truly effective drug treatment for psoriasis. About 80% of people living with psoriasis have plaque psoriasis. Plaque psoriasis causes patches of thick, scaly skin that may be white, silvery, or red. About 50% of people who develop psoriasis see changes in their fingernails and/or toenails.

People who develop psoriasis inherit a particular mix of genes which when exposed to the right trigger lead to the condition. Scientists also have learned that not everyone who inherits genes for psoriasis develop psoriasis. What triggers psoriasis in one person may not trigger psoriasis for someone else.

Psoriatic flare ups can cause severe itching and pain. Depression seems higher in people who have psoriasis than in the general population. Psoriatic arthritis can inhibit sleep. Sunlight helps alleviate discomfort for some people.

Psoriasis certainly has to do with your immune response. Scientists have discovered that when a person has psoriasis, the T cells (a type of white blood cell that fights unwanted invaders such as bacteria and viruses) trigger a false alarm in the skin cells. Psoriasis is linked to abnormal Glutathione enzyme activities. Researchers associate this disease with high levels of free radicals. Raising your Glutathione levels can certainly be a benefit.
