Help for Mom with serious Psoriasis

My mom has suffered with this since I can remember. Within the past 3 years it has gotten increasingly worse. She has been under the care of a dermatologist for the last at least 7-10 years. No treatment has worked. She had a historectomy at age 38 and as a result takes Premarin 1.25mg a day x5. She also takes Bayer PM to aid in sleep daily. She takes vitamin E, when she can remember approx 3x week. Eats a lot of salt, bacon, eggs, cereal, whole grain bread, beef once a week and chicken, lunchmeat, spinach, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts and green beans. Eats chocolate chip cookies every now and then. Drinks no fat milk, 4 cups of coffee a day, beer 1 a day, lots of water. Just started drinking soy milk daily. The psoriasis is mostly on her elbows and knees and sometimes vaginal area. She is not using anything for it at present. I also have it, only on my hands. My outbreaks are rare My first daughter (22) has it on over 80% of her body. My 12 year old has it only on her scalp to date. My thought is that my mother is the root and we have developed same lifestyle. Hoping that we can all benefit through change in diet and life style. We are stubborn, emotional individuals. Any views would be greatly appreciated.

Please post in detail how the psoriasis of your mother behaves. In homoeopathy there is no single medicine for disease or pathological state e.g. psoriasis. We need to know how the eruptions are, when does it itch does any agent / cause aggravates the eruptions(if at all) or ameliorates. Whether any exudation from the skin.etc.etc.
I have only stated a small part of numerable possible symptoms of psoriasis. You should not get carried with it but in fact try to state as precisely as possible all the sensations, feelings that your mother feels along with psoriasis. You may state all the medical history along with specifically is she has any sort of acute disease like cardiac problems, diabetes, blood pressure etc.

My mother is very active. She has always had this problem and modern medicine such as steriod creams have only temporarily alleviated the itching. At this point the skin is thin and red. Any itching causes bleeding. This is probably due to the extended history of using creams with steriods in them (she thinks). It started with excessive skin growth and as she itched it flaked and left skin red and sensative. Itching intensifies during negative emotional extremes. Never when she is happy. She will unknowingly scratch even at night until the skin is raw a bloody.

We have just recently linked itching with food. It has taken this long to even get her to consider alternative medicine, since nothing else is working. Very stubborn in nature. I have her keeping a food diary and she has noticed that when she eats processed wheat and milk, it gets really bad. Milk has caused her to have a lot of gas for the past 15 years. She has taken Beano for that, because she loves milk. I have noticed that when i increase my milk intake, my problem also flares up. As i drink less or cut it out completely, i am on the mend. Mine will go completely away. Hers never has. It has left permanent scars on her elbows and knees. At this point it covers midway in both directions starting at elbows and the same with her legs. It is mostly flakey at edges. Skin at the center is red and sensative and sometimes cracked. Cold water stops itching. Also oatmeal based lotions help a little.

My mother was born with a hole in her heart, the size of the head of a pin. No surgery was done. she has had high blood pressure in the past, but not for the last 15-20 years.

I have had much luck with herb specialists in my own experience. I understand, that it is important to treat the person as a whole. Our skin in all three generations is very sensative. We literally wear our emotions on our skin.

I hope that i have made it clear that I understand that there is no quick fix and that there are many faucets to this disorder. Modern medicine has failed us to this point. I only ask for possiblilties as a "cure" seems too dubious in any sort of medicinal community.

Thanking you in advance for your assistance. I remain hopeful that a change in life style (ie diet, exercise, meditation???) may be the answer.
