***Testimonies on Psoriasis

=================================================== Dear Theresa, In response to your question regarding psoriasis, a combination of Ultimate Aloe Juice, OPC-3 and Oxygen Plus have worked well for some of our customers. It may also be helpful to topically apply the Aloe Gel.

Good Luck, Andy & Teresa Pizzo =================================================== Joyce,

I have a customer with psoriasis and has gotten great results with Face pads and OPC-3. The itching has been greatly reduced. The reddness has not completely gone yet but she has just started the 3rd bottle of OPC-3. The Face pads help with itching and reddness.

Hope this helps you.

Linda H Dublin, Va. =================================================== My wife's Uncle had a horrible case of psoriasis for many years. He would go to the dermatologist and get a different cream after different cream. Well after the success that his daughter had with shingles he decided to use the OPC-3 and Ultimate Aloe. Well within a month he had completely cleared up! We don't know which one helped or if it was a combination, all he knows is that he does not look like a leper any longer!!

Larry H M.C. So. Calif. =================================================== Dear Dr. Wilmer:

My son, 21 years of age, has psoriasis on his hands, scalp, and more recently on his face. He tells me the medical profession is treating him with some very scary drugs, steroids, and other meds that can cause damage to the liver and other organs.

Do we have anything in our nutritional line that may help him. None of the conventional drug therapies to date have worked. Next week the doctors will be giving him UVA treatments!

Thank you Jim F ===================================================

Talk with others who are coping with psoriasis on the Better Health boards!

Psoriasis is a common chronic skin condition, characterized by reddened patches called plaques covered with thick silvery scales. It usually starts with involvement of the scalp, elbows and knees, but is also seen frequently on palms, soles, nails and trunk. The face is rarely affected. Two to three percent of the population has psoriasis.

What Causes Psoriasis? The cause is unknown, although a genetic component is likely. There is some evidence that the body's immune system is involved.

Symptoms The red plaques and scale on the affected areas of the skin are easily recognized. In the milder form, the lesions are usually more of a cosmetic problem. Itching is minimal, except when on the scalp or skin folds. The more severe cases can involve almost the entire skin surface, including genitals, and cause discoloration and pitting of the nails.

Complications Psoriasis is rarely life threatening, but it can contribute to serious emotional and behavioral problems, because of social interaction and self-esteem difficulties. Persons with psoriasis may also have rheumatoid arthritis or another form of arthritis, psoriatic arthritis. Normal-appearing skin in a psoriasis patient often is not really normal; if the skin is scraped or cut, a psoriasis lesion may form at the injury site.

Diagnosis Psoriasis is relatively easy to diagnose by physical examination of the lesions alone. The borders of the psoriatic lesions are well defined, as opposed to the more diffuse boundaries of other skin conditions, such as dermatitis. When confirmation

is needed, a skin scraping can be done for a tissue analysis.

How Can You Prevent Psoriasis? Unfortunately, there is no known way to prevent psoriasis.

What Can You Do?

It is recommended that people with psoriasis avoid trauma to the skin (see Complications), keep the skin well lubricated, use mild soap and not over bathe.

Is There a Medical Treatment?

When the psoriasis affects less than 30 percent of the body surface, high- potency steroid creams or lotions are usually recommended, starting with twice-daily applications, then dropping down to three or four times on weekends. Less potent steroids plus tar formulations can also be employed after the high-potency start-up treatment.

Covering the affected areas on the trunk or extremities with a thin plastic film for up to a week has shown to be effective on a few people. A number of steroid and tar shampoos formulations are available specifically for scalp involvement.

A newer drug, calcipotriene, a chemical relative of vitamin D, has been shown to work well in two recent research studies. However, it is quite expensive and is, therefore, recommended for use as a supplemental agent to an existing treatment plan, or for those who don't tolerate or are resistant to other treatments.

Psoriasis, when it affects more than 30 percent of the body surface, is difficult to treat with lotions or creams. When it is this severe, ultraviolet (UV) light is often recommended. Exposure every other day for a few weeks until clearing is seen seems to be the best approach. Relapses after this course of treatment are frequent, so a maintenance treatment plan of UV light plus a drug to increase the skin's sensitivity to the light may be put into place. However, there is a real concern about skin cancer with long-term exposure to this combination.

Cyclosporine, a potent immunosuppressive drug, has shown promise as a treatment for psoriasis but here, too, relapses occur after the initial course of treatment. The long-term safety of cyclosporine has not been established.

Prognosis

Psoriasis is a chronic condition with no cure. Current treatment targets relieving the symptoms and providing emotional and psychological support. Response to medical treatment, much of which has serious side effects, is unpredictable and relapses occur frequently.

Sonya,

My husband has always had psoriasis, used many tar ointments and photo therapy treatments, all helped for limited time, if you could stand the smell. He used OPC-3, 3 caps a day and he healed in 3 weeks, along with aloe drink 2 oz. A day. There are times in the different seasons that it flares up a little more and he uses Clearshield to protect it from long sleeve shirts.

===================================================

Dear Mr. F:

Like so many diseases, psoriasis appears to have a major component that involves the overproduction of oxygen radicals. The second major component is a hyperproliferation of keratinocytes. The production of oxygen radicals and their release into the local cellular environment in the skin can stimulate the additional production of proinflammatory cytokines (or signaling proteins) that call for immune cells to circulate in the skin and attack the skin cells and associated connective tissue. Also, some forms of psoriasis can affect tissues other than the skin. I think that ingesting a variety of antioxidants might be one way to influence the frequency of flare-ups. He has probably tried steroid creams, such as triamcinolone, which suppress the skin-associated lymphoid system and the production of proinflammatory cytokines by keratinocytes. He might consider applying Vita Shield Moisturizer which contains antioxidants loaded into liposomes for deep penetration in the epidermis and dermis. This product is also an excellent moisturizer---damaged, inflamed skin can lose a fairly large amount of water, leading to increased dryness and the likelihood that the damaged skin will be even more brittle. Brittle skin tends to liberate more interleukin-1alpha, a major proinflammatory protein stored in high concentrations in keratinocytes, which can augment the flare-ups- -kind of a vicious cycle. I would suggest the new OPC-3 Triple Serum, but I recall that you live in Canada. I recognize that Vita Shield products are expensive and it would be a bit much to apply the products over large areas of skin, but perhaps it might be possible to catch the flare-ups in an early phase.

I hope this discussion helps.

Sincerely,

James L. Wilmer, Ph. D. Scientific Affairs/Quality Control Market America, Inc. 7605 Business Park Drive, Greensboro, NC 27409

I have been taking ThermoChrome 5000 for just about two months, the 25 th will be two months. I have lost forty-two

pounds, and I've gone down from a size twenty-four to an eighteen, and I'm not done yet. My son has lost fifteen pounds

in the same time frame, and his knee pain did subside some, but not enough. Keith Doyle told me about OPC-3: "Tell Bob to take a double shot twice a day." We did that - after a week, need I say more? It's gone, no more knee pain.

Well, I will not leave my daughter out, she likes to be involved. The only thing she was troubled with is Psoriasis. I was told to try it, it may work. She has been taking OPC-3 for about a month and a half. Her skin has cleared up one hundred and

ten percent. We are all so excited about our changes we can hardly stand it.

Betsy L. S =================================================== By Donovan J. Anderson, M.D. Willow Valley Medical Center, August 29,

1996

Psoriasis is a chronic disease that is found more prevalently in the USA than in less developed countries. Its cause is unknown. It is characterized by scaly, shiny lesions that break out on the erythematous areas of the skin. Although unsightly and irritating, psoriasis is neither painful nor contagious.

Specialists who treat psoriasis frequently, believe it is brought on by genetic factors in combination with several factors including diet, immediate environment, and lack of vitamins A and D. The lesions respond well to sunshine, concentrations of ultraviolet rays, and recently they have been found to respond well to saline rich muds of the Dead Sea resorts. (I wonder if the mud from the Salton Sea would work?)

The Aloe program includes an applied regimen of regular daily topical applications of Aloe vera gel. Large daily doses of Aloe drinking juice, supplemented by a specific regimen of megavitamins and anti-oxidants. And with a strict all natural diet which excludes any intake of processed foods, "junk" foods, fast food meals, sugar or foods heavy in animal fat or other high LDL cholesterol. We also find that more fresh fruits and vegetables help the skin to heal faster.

1.After showering with mild soap, 2.spray the affected area with Aloe liquid spray. 3.Apply Aloe gel 4 times per day is best. 2 times minimum. 4.Drink at least 4 oz of Aloe drink per day. 5.Take multivitamin and mineral combination. 6.Get at least 1 hour of sunshine to the affected skin each day or UV light. 7.Eat natural diet with fruits and vegetables with as little animal products as possible. 8.Try to limit processed foods and "junk" foods. 9.I strongly recommend a potent antioxidant such as pycnogenol or grape seed extract.

The Aloe juice and gel must be high quality.

===================================================

I do not have psoriasis, but I do have very, very dry skin. I have found that the best product for my skin is Aloe. I hate the

taste and try every once and a while to not drink it for a few days, but I ALWAYS notice and have to go back on the Aloe. It just helps to heal the cracks I get in my hands and feet and makes me not so scaly. I get less cracks when on the Aloe. I definitely notice a difference. It takes about 4-7 days from not taking it at all to notice a difference in the skin. I take only

1-2 oz a day mixed with juice. I also read in "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" by Phyllis and James Balch that "Current research points also to an immune system role in psoriasis. People with HIV or AIDS often have severe psoriasis. The buildup of toxins in an unhealthy colon also has been linked to the development of psoriasis." (p.452) So Aloe may also stimulate the immune system and help keep the colon healthier which may also contribute to good healthy skin. Hope this

helps!

===================================================

I have heard the aloe is great for psorisis! It worked for my mom but she didn't have it real bad. It works from the inside

out. I had her using clearshield as well.

Psoriasis Frank April 9, 2008

I had customer who had tremendous results from our products. She was a severe case of this condition on steroids and

she refused to take chemo agents to treat her psoriasis due to fear of side effects (she is a cancer wood nurse and knew how bad the chemo agents can be). We started her with 7 day NutraClean and then she was on opc and digestive engyme. (the key to any skin condition is digestive track health). Before she ordered the second bottle, she had seen dramatic improvement. As she put it herself, the stuff saved her two lifes. (she was suicidal and her mother was very worried). Now she is off all medications and her skin is clean and smooth.

hope this help.

I had psoriasis so badly that the dermatologist wanted to give me chemo as a last resort treatment. Sorry, but I've had cancer and would live with it rather than have chemo again.

Then MA was introduced to me. I was interested in the website division; but Valerie Castleman was also a nurse and noticed my skin problems. She suggested OPC3 and aloe, which have worked wonders! The combination of the two are awesome!

I've also heard people say that they use Omega III oils as well.

I started OPC-3 in Jan 2009 when my husband, a health food nut, brought the product home. I had been on antibiotics for

an illness and I only took the product to please my husband. I took 2 capfuls daily for 3 weeks when one day I noticed that almost all my psoriasis had cleared.

This was amazing to me as I have tried EVERYTHING on the market and I had just given up on ever being free of psoriasis.

I have used tar,cortisones,vitamin E creams and shampoos. I have taken prednisone, soriatane, even Enbrel injections. None of these methods have worked and most have made me sick with terrible side effects not to mention they were very expensive.

People who have known me for years have been coming to me and asking where they can get the "miracle" stuff that has cleared my skin. I'm a walking miracle thanks to OPC-3.
