Are You Sick Of Hiding Your Skin? Psoriasis Sufferers Benefit From Colostrum Supplements!
Colostrum is the milk produced by the mammary glands in mammals in late pregnancy. This precious liquid is chalk full of antibodies and protects the newborn against disease. It is also very high in protein. The antibodies in colostrum provide passive immunity, while growth factors stimulate the development of the gut. They are passed to the newborn and provides the baby with their first protection against bacteria and viral pathogens.
What Are The Benefits Of Colostrum?
Colostrum has been shown to benefit you by significantly reducing the inflammatory process within the body, according to an article in Pediatric Research. How does this help you? Inflammation, or swelling/irritation, within the body, is the root of most autoimmune diseases including psoriasis. Colostrum supplementation naturally reduces this constant inflammation that is stressing your body.
You can also increase your immune system with the antibodies provided by colostrum.
There are growth components contained within colostrum that stimulates skin and muscle tissue repair by reversing the destruction of skin cells and protein breakdown.
These benefits of colostrum are also paramount in the healing of the gut or small intestine. Research has shown a link between autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis and a leaky gut. “Colostrum is the only known natural substance that has the capability of healing the GI tract and preventing it from becoming too permeable. Thus, colostrum may have the potential to slow or stop the progression of an autoimmune disease that progresses as a result of leaky gut syndrome.” (Centre for Nutritional Research)
Colostrum To Help Cure Psoriasis
Natural treatment alternatives speak to us personally because we have a 6 year old daughter who suffers with psoriasis. My mission has been to research and find the most effective natural treatments for psoriasis in order to help my daughter. The alternative would be prescribed immuno-suppressant drugs and cortisone creams, both of which we are opposed to using. Drugs like these will suppress your immune system to suppress the psoriasis, which means our daughter would be more likely to pick up other diseases.
I have found that a key player in the development of psoriasis and autoimmune disease is yeast, or properly, candida albicans. Research has shown that colostrum is a natural supplement that will clear the candida toxin out of a child’s body over a period of time. As I connected the dots, I realized that if I could clear the toxins from my daughter’s body, this would boost her immune system. I started her on colostrum as a candida cleanse ultimately to cure her psoriasis. The recommended cleanse time for a child was three months. She is just completing her second month and her results have been great. We are seeing healing of her lesions and healthy skin is emerging.
The health benefits of colostrum are particularly effective when you are fighting an autoimmune disease. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease.
There are many people that supplement with colostrum for different health reasons. The use of colostrum clinically for psoriasis and other autoimmune disease has been supported within many journals including Pediatric Research, The American Journal of Natural Medicine, and Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. If you suffer and are tired of other treatments not working, based on research and personal experience, I would suggest you explore the benefits of colostrum for you.
