One alternative treatment for psoriasis that a lot of sufferers are familiar with is Aloe barbadensis or Aloe vera. But few psoriasis sufferers know that a better choice would be Aloe arborescens, a species of aloe that’s a lot more potent that Aloe vera. You can use it both externally and internally and, if I were a psoriasis sufferer, I would follow the same A. arborescens protocol used by cancer patients, but I would also apply it directly to the skin, especially the psoriatic lesions.
Drinking the Aloe barbadensis is an alternative treatment for psoriasis. A. barbadensis is the type of aloe commonly referred to as “Aloe Vera” and it’s okay to drink fresh Aloe barbadensis if this is all that is available to you, but if you have the ability to get your hands on an Aloe arborescens plant or a drink that was made according to the Aloe arborescens cancer cure recipe (which was developed by Father Romano Zago), this powerful psoriasis home remedy would be worth trying.
An Aloe arborescens regime combined with a colonic could help soothe your intestines, reduce inflammation, and promote healing, but again, if you only have Aloe barbadensis available to you, use that! Aloe barbadensis and Aloe arborescens have a lot in common, but according to research from the Palatini Institute in Italy, Aloe arborescens has a 200% higher concentration of medicinal properties than Aloe vera. A. arborescens has accomplished amazing things for people, including curing cancer but all aloe types contain the healing substances that are in A. arborescens (just in smaller quantities). If you can, find several large fresh, edible aloe plants and grind the leaves in a blender for use in the following recipe:
- ½ kilogram (1.1 pounds) of pure honey. DO NOT USE SYNTHETIC OR REFINED HONEY.
- 3-4 leaves of Aloe arborescens (wash, and remove the spines)
- 40 to 50 mL (6 to 8 teaspoons) of whiskey, cognac, or another type of pure alcohol (The alcohol acts as a distillate to preserve the product and make it more biologically available. It is an important medicinal part of the formula that cannot be omitted.)
Mix the above ingredients together in a blender. Store the final product in a 16-ounce, dark, violet-colored HDPE non-toxic plastic or glass bottle that you can buy from a pharmacist or drug store. Refrigerate it or store it in a cool, dark place.
One dose = 1 to 2 Tablespoons
Patients should take 1 Tablespoon 3 times per day. Doses should be taken 20 to 30 minutes before a meal on an empty stomach. Shake well before taking it.
Aloe arborescens is the only known plant that contains 73 of the 95 enzymes in the human body. Enzymes catalyze or facilitate chemical reactions in the body. So the A. arborescens plant has the highest number of enzymes of any plant currently known on earth that are identical to enzymes produced by humans. These enzymes promote normal physiological functioning in the body and they can help the body rebalance itself and find health if imbalances exist.
A.arborescens is well-known for its ability to accomplish the following things for psoriasis sufferers:
- Detoxification of the blood
- Enhancement of intestinal health
- Enhanced immune response and function (balances autoimmune responses)
- Enhancement of digestive health (diminishes reflux and gastritis)
Studies have demonstrated that a 0.5% aloe vera extract cream was able to definitively resolve the plaques caused by psoriasis without side effects. This study was conducted on participants with plaque psoriasis and 25 of the 30 patients resolved their plaque psoriasis with topical use. But despite the results of this study, many patients anecdotally report that aloe vera cream alone simply isn’t strong enough. Though a commercially produced cream product may work for some patients, a cheaper and better approach to psoriasis treatment would be to buy several aloe plants (ideally Aloe arborescens plants) to use their leaves directly. Simply cut the leaves open and spread the mucilaginous substance on the areas that need it. Let it dry and soak into the skin. For psoriasis, drink the recipe above as well.
One systematic review of the scientific research that’s been done on Aloe vera for psoriasis treatment, concluded that the results of the studies that have been done on aloe for psoriasis are contradictory, but there are problems with a lot of the research studies so the authors of the review decided that it wasn’t possible to reach a solid conclusion about how reliably Aloe vera is at psoriasis treatment. However, these researchers did note that Aloe vera didn’t cause any side effects and self-treatment with Aloe plants is well-tolerated. So if you’re looking for an alternative psoriasis treatment, this is an affordable option that anyone can try without risk. Again, remember that even if Aloe vera (A. barbadensis) doesn’t work for you, Aloe arborescens is stronger so it might have an impact on psoriasis even if Aloe vera doesn’t work. A. arborescens used both internally and externally may need to be used consistently for a period of time in order to demonstrate results.
Because the pharmaceutical industry is intent on protecting its own interests, few studies have been funded for A. arborescens.
