Can juicing help with skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema?
I was asked “if you were working with a client struggling with a skin issue, such as psoriasis, what advice would you give them?”
Your skin is your largest organ of elimination and helps to detoxify your cells so that you can stay healthy, full of energy, and disease-free. Combatting skin conditions is not only about what you add to your diet, but also what you eliminate.
Psoriasis is a common inflammatory skin disease affecting 2% of the population and in 2009 researchers from the University of Edinburgh said that eczema was now one of the most common chronic condition in England and cases had risen by 40 per cent in four years.
Add nutrients, eliminate toxins
In some sufferers, toxicity in the body appears to be an important underlying factor. In practice, the purging of toxins from the system seems to have the ability to improve symptoms.
Consuming an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables is key and juicing is a great way to maximise your intake. Water helps detoxification and it is important to stay properly hydrated.
Reducing or eliminating processed foods, added sugar, red meat, dairy, alcohol and tobacco has also been shown to help.
