I'm a type O with Psorisis that comes and goes. Aggrivated by stress and worse in the winter. Any suggestions on helping this? I eat very blood type friendly, no dairy, sugar, and very very little grains and legumes.

Blood Type Diet and Psoriasis

In Response To: Psoriasis (Karl Webber)

The blood type diet is singularly effective in curing psoriasis. It is well-known that psoriasis is aggravated/caused by excessive levels of proteins called 'polyamines.' Polyamines result form the action of the gut bacteria, or are made in the liver, where they are used as growth stimulants, especially in young children. Polyamines also make cancer cells grow as well. It is well known that dietary lectins stimulate the production of polyamines (though some actually can lower them).

In essence:

ER4YT= low lectin=low polyamine= low level of cell growth in psoriasis.

There is an extensive discussion of polyamines in the next book.

PS, also a very good thing in a recovering cancer patient.

So now what would clean up polyamines in the gut for an O? read this old thread.

Found this too.. regarding lectins..

Lectin treatments
Lectins can be both good and bad. Some lectins stimulate cell production (known as mitogens), thus creating increased cell growth that can be problematic medically (think tumors). Another lectin, Agaricus bisporus lectin (ABL), was discovered to actually inhibit such cell proliferation in Keratinocytes. As mentioned earlier, Keratinocytes are your body's skin cells that can run amok and overproduce cells, resulting in the skin disease psoriasis.

Quoted Text
Jacalin lectin (created from the Jackfruit seed) and Agaricus bisporous lectin (ABL) were both available for commercial purchase - and mentioned in Johnathon Rhodes' patented lectin study in 1989 about their potential benefit for psoriasis treatment--but they were not being used for that purpose. Rhodes' study purports that psoriasis could be successfully treated using topical products like cream or lotion which had been formulated with a percentage of ABL lectin. However, that particular product has not been released onto the market to date. But there are companies moving in that direction, and Lectin Labs is one of them. A link to Lectin Labs' website, as well as other key information included in this article can be accessed in the Resources section below.

I'm not positive but I think I am a Hunter. I have an insane metabolism, and an athletic lean build. I can eat lots of animal protein and fat and do well. Carbohydrates do not fair well with me.

My son (age 22) suffers from psoriasis as well and I have done endless searches for some relief or cure. He is also Type O and the condition has greatly improved with dietary changes.

He did see results with applying oregano oil (found in health food store) to his scalp. There is plently of info on this if you do an internet search. One of the drawbacks is sitting around smelling like a pizza! It is pretty potent but definitely helped.

Hi there,

I have a suggestion for you.  Have you tried a homeopathic cream called "Psoriaflora"??  It is made by Boericke & Tafel and you can get it at any health food store.  You have to use it 3-4 times a day and stick to it, but it does work.  AND, I found the interesting part to be WHY it worked.  The active ingredient in it is Berberine...which, if you look it up is an anti-bacterial (so is oregano, by the way).  So maybe your issues have to do with a bacterial load?  Not that I'm saying Dr D is wrong....I believe so many of our health issues these days are gut related.....including overgrowth of bacteria.  It probably boils down to the same thing.  Anyway, the cream may help you get through while you figure out the actual "cause" of the psoriasis.  I love the cream and actually use it as a facial moisturizer....WHY, you ask??  Well, the antibacterial properties of the cream help prevent my face from breaking's good stuff.  And I have seriously sensitive skin and have no problem with the cream.

Good luck!
