A common chronic skin condition characterized by scaling plaques, itching and inflammation, the most recent research on psoriasis points to an autoimmune process as the underlying cause.
In up to one-third of cases, there is a family history of psoriasis, pointing to an inherited tendency in this disease.
Psoriasis develops because the cells of the skin replicate at a much faster rate than they should, leading to skin cell build-up on certain areas of the body.
We look at your entire health history, including the health of your parents and other relatives, to determine possible causes of psoriasis.
In autoimmunity, symptoms result from the body attacking itself. Underlying every autoimmune condition is a fundamental confusion in the body about what is self and what is not self. The ability to distinguish self from non-self normally develops by the age of seven years old, but, in some circumstances, this process does not fully complete.
Working together, we will support your body to build the proper barriers between you and the outside world. As your immune system begins to recognize your own native tissues, your skin will have the opportunity to normalize.

We want to assure our patients that the continuity of your care is our primary concern during this period of transition. Your practitioner will continue to be available to you in the same way, providing the same services, and accepting the same insurance plans. The only change will be where you drive to see her (and easier parking!). Concerning your access to supplements, you can continue to get them from your practitioner at her new location, or she may have set up an online dispensary to make reordering more convenient. Those details will be shared with you by your practitioner.
After we receive your appointment request, we will call you within 1 business day to confirm details and officially book your appointment.
