Use tea tree oil to help psoriasis, combined with a change in diet, with health advice from a professional wellness consultant in this free video on natural remedies.
Hi there. My name is Isabelle. I am a nutrition consultant in the Tampa Bay area and today we're going to learn about how to use tea tree oil to cure for psoriasis. Let's understand what psoriasis is first. It comes from an allergic to, reaction to certain foods, mainly gluten, alcohol, any fried foods and processed foods. So if you eat a lot of these, and you have psoriasis, then don't eat those anymore, and instead, you going to replace this with lots of fruits, lots of vegetables like any of these that I have in front of me. Now, tea tree oil is also for the outside of the body and to treat exactly the area where you have those red patches on your skin and I find mine in actually essential oils. They come in very little jars. They are very potent, very concentrated, so all you need is a few drops. And what you would do, let's say you have it on your scalp. When you wash your hair and rinse your hair, you would put a few drops of the tea tree oil directly on the head mixed with water and a conditioner and just let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse off. Now let's say it is on my arm. What you will want to do is dilute, important, dilute the essential oil with either some body lotion that has absolutely no fragrance. If you can get some from a massage therapist, that would be the best. And then just apply it directly to the area. It is important not to apply the essential oil directly on to the skin as it can burn and obviously if you have psoriasis, you don't want to aggravate the condition to begin with. Something to consider is to do something relaxing. The reason why is because stress will cause a flare up. So if you find yourself very stressed out, do something fun. Go get a massage, whatever is relaxing for you, do it. And last thing, but not least, drink ample amount of water. Ideally, anyone and everyone should be drinking half your body weight in ounces or water. Yes, you heard me right, half your body weight in ounces of water, so if you're two hundred pounds, you need to drink one hundred ounces of water a day. That will help flush the toxins out, replenish your body of the liquids that it needs and help you funct, your body function the way it's supposed to.
