Psoriasis and the banana peel cure

Remedy Description


'Ask the Doctor', Dr. Peter Gott, Newspaper Columnist, Dec 8, 2007



Dear Dr. Gott: Several years ago, my husband had psoriasis in his hair, eyebrows and

across his forehead. I heard somewhere that T-Gel Shampoo by Neutrogena would get rid of

it, so I got him some. Well, it worked! He has been completely free of the problem for years.

We had a friend with the same problem, so I suggested he try it. It worked for him, too.

It can't hurt trying and is a lot cheaper than seeing a dermatologist.

Dear Reader: This extremely irritating condition is caused by an overproduction of skin

cells, resulting in scaly, unsightly patches of skin. It can occur anywhere on the body

but is most common on the knees, scalp, elbows, legs and palms of the hands. It is often

difficult to treat, so I am delighted to pass on your experience.

Many of my readers indicate success in treating their psoriasis by rubbing the inside

fleshy part of a banana over affected areas two to three times a day. More difficult areas

can be managed by taping a banana peel patch directly to the site(s).

To give you related information, I am sending you a copy of my health report, "Eczema and



Dear Dr. Gott: This is for your reader that had psoriasis behind her ears and in her hair.

I had the same problem for several yeas and spent hundreds of dollars seeing a

dermatologist. He said it can be treated but not cured; he was wrong. I called a health

food store and asked them about the condition. They told me to take flaxseed oil and

vitamin B stress complex pills together once a day. I have not had the psoriasis in my

hair since, and the alternative treatment is much cheaper than the expensive medicine,

shots and radiation treatments that did not work.

I hope this letter helps your reader. It sure worked for me.


Dear Reader: Psoriasis can be triggered by anything from stress to weather changes. Siding

with your dermatologist, I was also taught it cannot be cured but can be managed.

Over-the-counter antihistamines, hydrocortisone creams, ointments and numerous alternative

treatments have been used successfully. I will now add your flaxseed oil and vitamin B to

that list. Thank you for sharing the information.
