All those people who suffer from chronic constipation for prolonged periods appear to be getting these skin diseases.
All those who accumulate abundant calcium in their body seem to be constipating.
All those who sweat profusely seem to be accumulating calcium in over-abundance.
Generally, curing psoriasis and eczema seems to be a difficult task. I have experienced some amount of success in curing these skin diseases essentially by correcting their chronic constipation.
In other words, almost all patients suffering from any of the skin diseases tend to have chronic constipation. So, a strict diet control preventing the consumption of chronic constipation-enhancing food items such as, cakes, chocolates, all forms of nuts (especially groundnuts), peanut butter, papaya fruit, etc. becomes a necessity for such a cure.
Another important cause for this kind of skin diseases appear to be related to the intake of poisons from detergents, pesticides, etc.
I have recorded the occurrence of psoriasis in a few people who had consumed too much of Sesbania leaves (called ‘Agathi Keerai’ in Tamil), which is often sold in the market. In indigenous medicine, this is considered good for the elimination of intestinal worms, and people are expected to eat it only once in a month.
