They CLAIM your meds are there to PROTECT you…
To SOLVE your problems…
And to make you BETTER.
But if you’ve ever had the sneaking suspicion that any of your prescription drugs could be actually CAUSING more problems than they SOLVE…
Then I’ve got a new report you need to see.
Because it CONFIRMS some of your worst fears, revealing how medications could trigger a common problem that many people find…
- and more.
I’m talking about psoriasis.
In most cases, people believe this condition is caused by poor genetics… or maybe an immune system gone funky.
Allow me to share what could be the TRUE cause of psoriasis.
More importantly, let me give some BETTER options than the ones most commonly behind this condition.
Studies show that nearly a third of all cases of psoriasis are “late onset” ones – starting past the age of 40.
The prime window for the onset of these late cases is 57 to 60 years old.
Hmmm… what typically happens past the age of 40? And what REALLY kicks in from the mid-50s on?
You guessed it…
MEDS, MEDS, and MEDS.
The new report from MedicalNewsToday names drugs often suspected in psoriasis cases…
And they’re meds that more people take during “middle age” and beyond.
They include 3 prime suspects:
- Blood pressure meds: Both beta blockers and ACE inhibitors – two of the most common classes of drugs for hypertension – have been linked to psoriasis, with beta blockers in particular linked to plaque psoriasis, the most common form of the condition.
- Painkillers: NSAIDs in particular can cause psoriasis if you don’t already have it… and worsen the condition if you do.
- Benzodiazepines: Honestly, if you’re on these anxiety meds, psoriasis might be the least of your worries. For seniors, they can cause cognitive problems, falls, pneumonia and a whole mess of nightmares.
Other potential drugs behind psoriasis include antibiotics, antifungals, antimalarials, TNF inhibitors, and biologics…
Each of which has MUCH BETTER and FAR SAFER options.
So if you’re struggling with this condition, speak to your doc about the meds you’re taking… and see what other alternatives you might be able to choose from.
In the meantime, I’ve got some ideas for ya.
Magnesium, lycopene, weight loss, and a daily walk can all help cut BP about as well as or better than many common meds.
Better options for pain include pregnenolone, bromelain, boswellia, capsaicin, MSM, and DMSO… as well as “bodywork” treatments such as chiropractic, physical therapy, massage, stretching, and more. (And don’t forget acupuncture.)
If you need some help relaxing, turn to herbals such as rhodiola or valerian.
And no matter what the cause of your psoriasis… there are some nondrug ways to get relief…
Starting with phototherapy.
Sure, it’s just light -- but it works. A 2017 analysis found it delivered at least a 75% improvement in patients with moderate to severe psoriasis.
