When you think of chemotherapy, you typically think of cancer. Chemotherapy is an extremely harsh treatment that is intended to poison cancer cells, but of course it also poisons the patient. When it is used, it’s like a game of Chicken where cancer and the patient are the contestants, and the oncoming train is the treatment.
What you may not realize is that chemotherapy is often used to treat conditions other than cancer. And the results are similar. When the patient is strong enough to tolerate the chemo, they often beat the disease, but it is risky, dangerous, and very unpleasant.
One such condition chemotherapy is used to treat is psoriasis, which is a chronic skin condition that- in most cases- is not generally dangerous to those suffering from it, but it is painful and can persist for years. Medical professionals are using a chemotherapy drug called methotrexate that has mixed results.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition where the immune system attacks healthy cells for reasons that are not well understood. It causes the outer layers of skin to die, creating thick, dry, cracked patches of skin that cause pain and bleeding. For most people, it is an inconvenience, but for some it is debilitating.
When the condition is extreme, patients who turn to chemo, do so at some risk to their health- and they certainly sacrifice their quality of life for the length of the treatments.
But, as usual, natural medicine has provided an alternative. After a number of trials and case studies, a body of evidence is emerging that appears to show that essential oils can provide superior results compared to chemotherapy. Not only are essential oils more effective, but the studies all suggest that the treatment has no negative side effects.
British model, Victoria Fine, suffered from psoriasis for 15 years. It covered her from head to toe and forced her to give up modeling. She tried everything. Nothing helped. She changed her diet, wore special clothes and eventually went on chemotherapy. Nothing stopped the psoriasis.
That is until she tried using a topical product that contained a number of essential oil extracts including safflower, olive, castor, sesame, wheat germ, rosemary, lavender, rose, evening primrose, avocado, lemon grass, bergamot, and chamomile. After a few weeks, her psoriasis, she says, was 95% receded.
Another case study concerned a waitress who also had psoriasis covering her body from head to toe. She switched to a vegan diet, gave up gluten foods, minimized alcohol consumption, and eventually went on chemotherapy. After a few weeks of essential oil therapy, she reports that her condition is completely cured.
Another British woman who suffered from psoriasis, as well as a severe case of eczema, has remedied her condition by using a combination of a natural anti-inflammatory diet and essential oils.
Essential oils are nontoxic. They lubricate the skin and also offer valuable nutrients that can nourish the skin, and many have anti-microbial and antiviral properties. Because mainstream medical research centers are not interested in essential oils, there are no respected studies to speak of. However, many alternative medicine practitioners have used it to great effect, and many sufferers of psoriasis have used it on their own and reported success.
Once again, it’s the same story where the mainstream method of treatment seems to do more harm than good, while harmless treatments that work much better are suppressed. What all of this means is no one practicing medicine can legally recommend essential oils as a mainline treatment for psoriasis and other serious conditions. Therefore, many people are taking chemical treatments that come with many unpleasant effects while using essential oils on the side.
In so many cases, patients who use essential oils either cure the condition or greatly reduce the symptoms.
Essential and non-essential oils that are commonly used for psoriasis include; coconut oil, tea tree oil, castor oil, lavender oil, geranium oil, peppermint oil, argan oil, and black seed oil. These are not generally recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
Essential oils offer a pleasant aroma, are good for the skin- even if they don’t treat disease- and cannot harm you in any way. If you are suffering from psoriasis, these substances just might turn your condition around.
