My son Randy has been afflicted with psoriasis since he was an infant. For many years
we were able
to keep in check but not to heal it. Unfortunately he stopped improving and had not had
any improvement for over 2 years. We had exhausted traditional medical treatments for
him, I knew it was time for an alternative. So I spent weeks surfing the web, reading
books, talking to people looking for a nontraditional treatment.|
In my research I
found the KALAMA Foundation. I was impressed with their claims so I contacted them.
and after a few conversations, Randy and I decided to try the Botanical Oils.
The improvement was amazing, after 2 weeks the improvements were visible. I have
chronicled the healing in pictures. (See the Photo Pages). I am extremely thankful that my
search sent me to the KALAMA Foundation web site.
Because of Randy's
personality he doesn't let many things get him down. I didn't fully realize how affected he
was emotionally by the psoriasis until a few weeks after starting the treatment with the
oils he said to me, "Mom, I don't think I'm gonna be a rotten head any more". Not many
things have touched me more than those words. Thank you KALAMA Foundation for
making that happen.
Psoriasis is a
chronic skin disease that generally appears as patches of raised red skin covered by a
flaky white buildup. Psoriasis is believed to be related to faulty signals sent by the body's
immune system. These signals accelerate the growth cycle in skin cells, which pile up on
the surface when the body can't shed them fast enough
Psoriasis marks people as different, because the skin - that which "displays" the
human being - has an altered appearance.
It is not uncommon for people with psoriasis to feel sadness, despair, guilt, anger
and low self-esteem. A person's sense of self-worth can be affected. In some cases, the
emotional turmoil of psoriasis can lead to depression.
