Nature’s answer

Dr A.Vogel’s Boldocynara liver drops is most beneficial in stimulating healthy liver function when treating Psoriasis.  Dr A.Vogel had a strong conviction that psoriasis and a sluggish liver was synonymous.

Dr A.Vogel’s Urticalcin tabs assists to normalise blood acidity in the psoriasic patient while providing an excellent source of calcium to strengthen all body systems.

Dr A.Vogel’s Molkosan liquid gives rapid relief to external symptoms of Psoriasis such as itching and flaking.  This concentrated whey extract can be applied undiluted or diluted to affected skin a few times per day.

Dr A.Vogel’s Echinaforce drops has a stimulating and regulating effect on the immune and lymphatic system.  Both are vitally important in the treatment of Psoriasis.

Dr A.Vogel’s Gastronol tablets is particularly useful in Psoriasis patients suffering from a weak digestive system characterised by bloating of the stomach, flatulence, diarrhoea or constipation.  Incorrect assimilation in the digestive tract, specifically of proteins, is at the root cause of many ailments, including psoriasis.

Some useful advice from Dr Vogel

This is one of the skin diseases which is extremely difficult to heal.  One successful treatment, however, is with Formic Acid 30x and an external application of graphite powder.  Although orthodox doctors consider psoriasis incurable, natural therapy, especially with the help of homoeopathy, can claim a considerable number of cures.

I remember the case of one girl who was almost completely covered in scaly patches, with the exception of a few small areas on her body.  Anyone afflicted with this disease knows what a terrible strain it is on the nerves.  Once the awful irritation starts up very few patients can bear it without scratching themselves until they bleed.  It was just like that with this unfortunate girl, who was suffering from one of the worst cases I had ever seen.  Often, by the morning she had scratched herself to such an extent that she was bleeding under the breast, on the legs and on the stomach.  After three months of intensive treatment the girl was cured, although two follow-up treatments were later necessary to cope with a few minor relapses.

Despite having been treated before, her skin was not so badly damaged that it could not be healed.  For some patients who have undergone an extensive tar and sulphur treatment and have perhaps even used grey mercury ointment, achieving a cure can be much more difficult. The chances of healing the disease are also very poor if the patient has been given radiation treatment and I would warn patients never to resort to this particular therapy.

Skin eruptions, including psoriasis, are generally curable if the patient perseveres with the treatment until the disease is completely healed.  However, if you handle skin irritants, such as terpenes, turpentine, household cleaners containing turpentine, or other strong turpentine products, the stimulus can provoke a relapse.

Psoriasis is not infectious and cannot be spread from one person to another.  It is, however, possible to pass it on to one’s children through the genes.  For this reason such children should be given prophylactic treatment.  Make sure that they have plenty of calcium (Urticalcin) and vitamins (Bio-Strath) in their diet and take proper care of their skin.

Did you know?

Treatment of Psoriasis takes time and perseverance.
The main thrust of the treatment is:

  • A basic healthy diet devoid of foods known to cause allergies
  • Improved liver and kidney function
  • Improved assimilation of nutrients by improving digestion
  • Stress factors which worsens adrenal function
  • To stop all suppressive measures

A basic healthy diet which consists of at least one raw food meal per day.  Emphasis should be on yellow vegetables and fruits.  No sugar, dairy, wheat, alcohol, coffee, tea, fizzy drinks, fruit juices, or refined wheat products are permissible to start with.  Please carefully read the advice of Dr Vogel as well as the Healthy Nutrition guide enclosed/attached.

The regular use of Dr A.Vogel’s Boldocynara liver drops and Nephrosolid kidney drops is to be couraged to improve kidney and liver function.  The healthy diet will contribute to the restoration of these organs.  At least 2 litres of water needs to be consumed daily.

Digestive processes can be improved by eating healthy food and by regularly using Dr A.Vogel’s Gastronol tabs.  In patients suffering from Candida Albicans, it will be necessary to also take Bioflora capsules on an empty stomach.  Candida Albicans has often been associated with a weakened digestive system, resulting in a compromised immune system, leading to many ailments.

Psoriasis often flares up when high tension levels are experienced by the patient.  The typical psoriasis patient is usually intense with an inability to relax easily.  Therapy to teach patients life skills to deal with worry, anxiety, fear and anger greatly assists to reduce the outbreak of this uncomfortable condition.  Dr A.Vogel’s Hyperiforce is nature’s own central nervous system tonic.  Use it long term together with Rescue Remedy to treat emotions.

The medical approach to psoriasis is one of using drugs externally on the skin and internally, which suppresses the eruption.  This is not the route to follow.  Many patients suffer needlessly with severe side effects from these suppressive treatments.  Psoriasis is not a disease of the skin only.  It is an external manifestation of an internal disorder.  The genetic component of this disease is high.  One could say it is in the blood, passed on from one generation to the next.  A trigger sets it off.  Very often the trigger is an inoculation, or the use of some drug, usually an antibiotic.  To clear this condition from the skin, it is necessary to remove the cause from the blood.

What to do

Stay with a basic healthy diet.

Do not suppress the eruption on the skin.  Use Molkosan or/and Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Cream to relieve the itching and burning.  Wash your hair with Thursday Plantation Shampoo daily and use the Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Conditioner as needed.

Try to introduce exercise into your daily routine as a stress reliever.

Regularly swim in the sea.  Seawater has been found to be very beneficial to psoriasis eruptions.

Supplement your diet with Bio-Strath Herbal Yeast Extract to nourish and to restore the body systems.  Bio-Strath contains the extracts of 50 herbs which is needed for each and every cell in the body.

Use Dr A.Vogel’s remedies regularly.  Psoriasis will not be cured or relieved overnight.  Give enough time for the treatment to take hold.

Psoriasis is treatable.  Consult your homoeopath to support your efforts with professional advice.


Psoriasis is a condition which runs in families.  It has a tendency to erupt after inoculations or after the use of drugs which compromises the digestive tract.  Psoriasis sufferers are sensitive to stress, which will worsen the condition. A simple lifestyle of healthy food, exercise, rest and peaceful activities will rapidly pay off in the reduction of psoriasis eruptions. Psoriasis is not easy to cure. Perseverance and patience is required.
