I know this might be weird but how many times do you “go” a day? A healthy normal digestive system will go at least once a day and up to three times a day! (No 2’s)

I know I don’t and I know I’d probably feel a lot better if I did! Well that’s because we have bad tummies! And we need to start building up our intestine walls to help aid digestion to stop the toxins from getting into our skin!

I’ll make a note that 98% of this program will be aimed at diet. Tonics, creams and drugs are not used as a means of healing your skin, its more that the beauty industry likes to make money of people who want to not be crocodiles.

One thing that we need to do is first rid our bodies of all the toxins that have been built up in our system for years without knowing it! All the gunk and gank that ur poor body has been trying to eliminate but can’t because we keep putting more and more and more in everyday!


I suggest two things. 1. DRINK LOADS OF WATER! 2. Have a colonic enema.  I know number 2 sounds weird but actually it really realllllly helps.

Have a glass with some lemon to help with your PH.


Your body needs to have the space to repair itself, and it can’t do that if the stuff wont budge and more toxins are being poured in without you knowing it.

I used a home kit, that you can buy online. The first time I had one was weird but the feeling of well being afterward was amazing.

Everyday drink 8 glasses of water. Drink 30 mins before and after meals but NOT during.

This will aid your digestion and not put pressure on work that your body is struggling to do anyway.


Look I know this sounds bad and you want to stop reading my blog anyway BUT if you have realllly bad skin and your at a point you’ll try anything or even if you just have amazing will power then STOP. (Or at least slow down until you do)

Since I came from North East England I LOVE my tea and was drinking it since i was 5, had my own little porcelain cup and everything! This was/is the hardest challenge for me.

It seems replacing your normal tea for a different one does really work! and I suggest Camomile or another digestion aid which isn’t acid based.



People with psoriasis have high acidic “neutrals” ph. This means we need to be more alkaline in order to balance out our natural state to give our bodies the best chance in fighting this thing.

Massage your tummy, and fart if you need to!!!!

We have bad tummies, if your aware or not. Keeping your farts in is like keeping your vomit in when you need to barf, or taking a bath of chemicals. LET IT OUT, it needs to come out, its toxic gas that does not want to be inside. A message from your body telling you it’s doing something to something bad!

Go to the toilet as much as you can! It’s a natural way of getting rid of waste we don’t need. Try a day’s worth of laxatives to start the process, just remember to keep hydrated!

Apples, apple and more Apples. If you don’t like apples then eat grapes!

Red apples or golden delicious! Always black/red grapes!


This is another way to help clearing out, eat a day of apples then have a home enema. The enzymes in the apples will help get the build up out and aid digestion. Eat a pint of plain natural yogurt after to keep you good bacteria in good nick!

Once we give our bodies a fighting chance then it can really start to get to work on what matters! Our Skin!

Weird fact – People are living long lives 60 years+ now because we have toilets everywhere and don’t need to hold it in to go out to the out house on a cold night.

Another one – white bread was invented to stop workers going to the toilet “breaks” regularly from eating their homemade whole grain bread.


Scales on Scales


Psora – “Itch” , Psoriasis meaning – a common chronic, inflammatory skin disease characterized by scaly patches. – Dictionary.

Unlike this very simple dictionary annotation of Psoriasis, it’s actually a very complicated deep rooted problem that takes quite a bit of explaining.

If your looking for the deep scientific argy bargy of it all I suggest reading Dr John’s book on healing psoriasis which is where I began my journey of health…

And to be honest everyone who has psoriasis should buy this book to fully understand the disease that you have and understand where it comes from and how it affects you.

Buy it here –


Long story short you have something that we call “leaky gut syndrome”. It means that the lining of your guts are thin and porous allowing toxins to seep through your guts, missing out your liver (the thing that filters everything) and head straight into your main stream. By this point your skin kinda goes “Oh shit, I’ll help out by trying to filter them myself!” (skin being the biggest organ on the body.) Thus ending upon a build up of plaque and dead skin cells.

The “bad” psoratic gene is the one that affects the immune system allowing the guts to become porous. Not only this but a mixture of high acidic diet and poor health will end up with a psoriasis sufferer head to toe with the cruel scales.

Once again I’ll mention Dr John’s book where he fully and clearly explains all the ins and outs of the psoratic body.

But what is I’m not covered? I only have a little bit on my elbows and tons in my scalp. I’m healthy, I’m a circus performer for god sake! So why do I still have it?!

Well self, You have it because what you see on your skin or scalp has taken a long time even years to develop to what it is now, “bad skin”. The toxins have been building up in your system so much that now it has to come out somewhere.

So now..

Psoriasis – Psora – “itch” – An auto immune disease that affects the “guts” of a sufferer due to over toxicity causing plaques to build up on the surface of the skin.

Well now that makes a bit more sense.

Where to begin?!


When anyone is starting a healing  journey they need to be ready for big changes.

They need to ask themselves 3 main questions…

  • Do I Want to change?
  • Am I ready to change?
  • Am I ready to work hard?

Living with a disease is tough enough as it is, do we really want to be putting ourselves through more misery or hard work? Do we need to work even harder for a condition We’ve had all our lives?

YES, nothing that’s worth having comes easy, and for us that applies to our skin.

I suggest that before anyone undergoes any radical changes in their life, for the better or worse that they ask themselves these three questions. That they ready themselves for an emotional and physical journey and be willing to learn.

This blog is intended to be used for people who like me are on a journey of health. People who want to be better and are actively looking for ways to help themselves. This blog wont do anything for you unless your willing to try and have an open mind.

I’m not a doctor, all I am is a sufferer of this skin disorder we share, and all information I put on here is correct to my knowledge and not of that of a health professional. (Unless Quoted)

So now all that’s out the way…let’s begin..

Oh and I’m a Circus performer, so I might mention that abit in this blog too!

Psora – The Itch

This a blog all about living with psoriasis.

Finding treatments, understanding the disease and pretty much trying to help other people cope with this scaly life.

When I think about psoriasis as a condition it leaves me asking a lot of questions like “where does it come from?” “how can I get rid of it?” “will I have it forever” “does it mean I have super skin cells?”  and most of the time I don’t really get answers.

Psoriasis is something that if you have it, you will have your whole life.

This doesn’t mean you can’t cure it. (Which most people/doctors believe is incurable.)

I’ve already started my journey to recovery, and I’m letting you all in on it. To help heal our community.
