Psoriasis: breaking the cycle of stress


Psoriasis is a ‘stress-related’ disease. It is triggered by stress and it causes major stress. This means that it creates a vicious cycle which causes terrible angst among most Psoriasis sufferers, young and old.

New research shows that up to 9 out of 10 psoriasis sufferers report that stress triggered their symptoms.

Whilst we cannot avoid or control stressful situations in life, we can control how we react to those situations and we can learn techniques to help manage stress and reduce – and, in some cases, eliminate – the physiological effects of stress. For example, several controlled studies have demonstrated that relaxation, hypnosis, biofeedback, and behavioral and cognitive stress management therapies have been effective in people with psoriasis.

These techniques take time to master but they are well worth the effort. In the meantime, there are two things all psoriasis sufferers can do:

  • Use a topical application to reduce the symptoms of Psoriasis. Topical steroids can work in the short-term but they come with a plethora of side-effects which include thinning of the skin. Many people who use corticosteroids tend to end up relying on them because the best a corticosteroid can do is alleviate symptoms. For this reason, many people prefer to use a more natural treatment that works by supporting body chemistry through anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-proliferative alkaloids such as the herbal extract, Mahonia aquifolium.
  • Try using natural calmatives mood relaxants to alleviate the impact of stress. Essential oil of Lavender has been found to  alleviate stress from fear as well as reducing pain.  And, inhaling Citrus aurantium or Citrus sinensis has also been shown to reduce anxiety in people. Using these can be as simple as having an inhaler or vapouriser dispersing the aroma at home.

However one of the most exciting developments in stress management today is the advent of CBD (otherwise known as Cannabidiol). In December last year, researchers confirmed that CBD can significantly reduce pain, stress AND inflammation which is why it is now being used as the supplement of choice for all stress-related conditions. Just a few drops of 15% CBD oil was found to be effective for most users. The benefits of CBD was confirmed by The National Cancer Institute (NCI) which now recognizes it as an effective treatment for providing relief in a number of symptoms associated with cancer, including pain, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, and anxiety.

One thing is certain, for anyone who has Psoriasis or has had Psoriasis in the past, managing stress in life is one of the most important things we can learn to both prevent outbreaks, overcome symptoms and maintain clear, healthy skin.

I have recently been diagnosed with psoriasis and was looking for something that I could treat it with that wasn't a prescription medicine. I came across M Folia and thought I would give the lotion and cream a try. My parcel arrived on the date expected and was well packaged. I decided to use the products before going to bed for the night in place of my Vitamin D cream but I wasn't prepared for the results I saw in the morning. My skin looked pink and rosy and the dry flaky patches were moisturised. Over the next few day's use my psoriasis really started to clear up to the point where I just now have a few red areas which I am still treating. The cream has a lovely feel and doesn't leave your skin greasy. Overall, I am very satisfied with M Folia.

My daughter has suffered with this condition over 20 years. I have seen her in a terrible state, with it coming up all over her. She is a hairdresser by trade and so is very conscious of her hair. Within one night of using the products I purchased it had all cleared up. UNBELIEVABLE PRODUCT. Would highly recommend to anyone. She is so different. thank you.

I have endured psoriasis for 30 years but very mildly on scalp and outer ears. My son(57),daughter(60),grandson(35),daughter(30) also suffer on various parts of the body. I am not aware of previous generations suffering, though information is scant. I have tried many things over the years. Most recently a beconase steroidal liquid and capsal shampoo. Having now used your product for about 2 months I feel that I have at last found something which leaves me much less itchy and generally in a much improved situation. I cannot say that is has "all gone" because it hasn't, but I am , as I said feeling hopeful for the future. Which, at 87, is saying a lot! From the family's situation each person seems to react differently to the condition and to the medications, which leads me to think that each case has to be handled individually. What works for one may often not work for another. I have one question. The flesh toned cream. Is it suitable for putting on my outer ears? I hope this is helpful Bruce Henderson

Brilliant service and brilliant product, this is the only conditioner that works on my itchy scalp. I do find that it works better if after shampooing I leave a very small amount directly on to the itchy areas of my scalp.

Wonderful products I had an outbreak on my scalp about 30 years ago. I talked it through with my GP at the time who had heard about MFolia benefits and after a long search for good products found Taylor Jackson. I used the scalp oil, the shampoo and the conditioner at first and when it cleared, I carried on using shampoo and conditioner. Although all symptoms have disappeared, I have only used these ever since. These are great products and importantly are SLS free. The multipacks are great value too. I definitely recommend these products. Whenever I have needed to speak to customer services they are friendly and always very helpful.

I have had psoriasis since i was a teenager and have been prescribed all sorts of products (including steriod creams) that never worked/helped. I discovered M.folia whilst browsing the internet and have been using it now for many years. I no longer have any plaques on my body just some stubborn patches on my scalp which i treat with the scalp oil, shampoo and conditioner. These are great products; they soothe and damp down any outbreaks i may get, smell fresh and most importantly to me are SLS free. The company is easy to deal with, customer services are friendly, quick to respond and always very helpful.
