Psoriasis – Emu Oil and Indigo Are a Great Healing Combination

Drugs can help some people with psoriasis, but drugs are not the answer for everyone and drugs are not always the best idea, either. Psoriasis sufferers who’ve tried the drug route unsuccessfully are learning that they don’t have to live with psoriasis any longer. There is a natural product that, with daily application, regulates skin cell growth and takes away any itching at the same time, and with no side effects. That natural wonder is Emu Oil.

This amazing oil works because it is a powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. Your skin will return to it’s normal state because it helps your skin regenerate new, healthy cells. Because of its’ very fine particle size, it is quickly absorbed deep into all layers of your skin to regulate the cells’ growth. The oil is odorless, tasteless and anti-bacterial and it is trans-dermal. There is no oily residue unless you’ve used too much.

And now, scientists have discovered something that gives this healing oil a double whammy against psoriasis. There is an herb that researchers in Taiwan thought might help psoriasis, so they had volunteers willing to try it on half of their bodies, with a control on the other half.

The herb is indigo (indigo naturalis) and the researchers mixed it with petroleum jelly and spread it on one arm of the psoriasis suffers. They spread plain petroleum jelly on the other arm. Seventy-four percent of the participants in the study experienced significant clearing of the psoriasis on the arms treated with indigo.

Now, we would recommend that you mix the powdered indigo with Emu Oil instead of the petroleum jelly because this oil, in and of itself, is excellent for returning psoriatic skin to health. It nourishes your skin with omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids and is composed of forty-three percent omega-9 fatty acid, a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent. This wonderful oil also relieves any itching you might be experiencing and the omega-7 in it is an anti-oxidant that promotes the regeneration of healthy tissue.

We do not recommend using petroleum jelly on your skin at all, because it is a chemical and a significant portion of it is absorbed into your body. Some people are allergic to it.

Powdered indigo is available from health food stores, Chinese herbalists or online. We would caution you against taking it internally as it can cause liver and gastrointestinal problems when taken long-term.

People who want to continue taking drugs should know that Emu Oil can enhance the effectiveness of topical medications by carrying those creams deep into their tissues, along with the benefits that the oil itself carries.

Are you also suffering from psoriatic arthritis? If so, this versatile oil is an excellent pain reliever for arthritis because it penetrates deeply through all the layers of your skin down to your muscles and bones and lubricates and gives relief from pain. You can buy Emu Oil products mixed with natural botanicals to enhance the beneficial effects of the oil, at [] Check out the Pain Relief and Arthritis pages for products made from the oil.

You can also take this healing oil internally, in the form of supplements, and the healing properties of the oil will speed up recovery from psoriasis and other ailments, the list of which is too long to list here.
