Psoriasis is a disease which causes red scaly patches to appear on the skin.
Hi, I'm new here and I suffer from the same nasty problem for several years. I tried many things, something even helped me to alleviate psoriasis, but unfortunately did not cure. I saw you write about Dr. Bronner, I haven't tried it yet, but I've got a tip. On a net I stumbled on an online store cannabiscosmetics.com with special hemp cosmetics, produced from the seeds of Cannabis sativa that doesn't contain THC. I ordered a cream that has a high percentage of hemp oil, quite helps. Anyone with experience here?
michaelisserman ~ Keep us posted on your results. The peppermint is our favorite but, I would not suggest using it if you are broken out.
Thank you for the suggestion. I just picked up a bottle of Dr. Bronner's and will try it this week.
I have had Psoriasis since I was a child and have tried just about everything. I did not try Enbrel though. One thing that has greatly helped me is Dr. Bronner's soaps. You can find it at most health food stores and grocery stores like Whole Foods. I have been using it for the past two years and have only had two separate breakouts. One from stress and the other I think from allergies. I would not stop the Enbrel if it is working but, I would give the soap a try.
CoRDS, or the Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford, is based at Sanford Research in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It provides researchers with a centralized, international patient registry for all rare diseases. This program allows patients and researchers to connect as easily as possible to help advance treatments and cures for rare diseases. The CoRDS team works with patient advocacy groups, individuals and researchers to help in the advancement of research in over 7,000 rare diseases. The registry is free for patients to enroll and researchers to access.
Enrolling is easy.
After these steps, the enrollment process is complete. All other questions are voluntary. However, these questions are important to patients and their families to create awareness as well as to researchers to study rare diseases. This is why we ask our participants to update their information annually or anytime changes to their information occur.
Researchers can contact CoRDS to determine if the registry contains participants with the rare disease they are researching. If the researcher determines there is a sufficient number of participants or data on the rare disease of interest within the registry, the researcher can apply for access. Upon approval from the CoRDS Scientific Advisory Board, CoRDS staff will reach out to participants on behalf of the researcher. It is then up to the participant to determine if they would like to join the study.
