Do You Suffer from Psoriasis?
If you or a loved one suffers from psoriasis, you’re no stranger to its irritating symptoms. With a psoriasis lesion, the surface area of the skin becomes red, inflamed, extremely sensitive, visibly raised and scaly. Psoriasis lesions can be found anywhere on the body, but the most common sites are the scalp, the elbows, the knees, the small of the back and the lower legs.
If you ask the typical family doctor about psoriasis, chances are he or she may say there’s no cure for the condition, but there are ways to manage it and relieve the discomfort it causes. For someone who’s been suffering for months or even years with psoriasis, that’s not too encouraging. However, as a result of the work of Dr. John Pagano, there’s reason to be optimistic!
Who Is Dr. John Pagano?
Dr. Pagano is author of the breakthrough book, Healing Psoriasis: The Natural Alternative. Although trained as a chiropractor, he became deeply interested in psoriasis when he met his first patients with the condition while interning at a Denver hospital in the 1960s. The thought of their torment never left him, and he embarked on more than 35 years of research to prove that psoriasis can be controlled and healed naturally.
In his book, Dr. Pagano wrote, “Psoriasis is the external manifestation of the body’s attempt to ‘throw off’ internal toxins.” In other words, the skin is doing what the bowels and the kidneys should be doing.
Normally, it’s the job of the bowels and the kidneys, not the skin, to remove waste matter from the body. In some cases, however, the bowels and kidneys can’t work quickly enough, which results in a toxic overload known as “leaky gut syndrome.” When this happens, the skin is called upon to act as a backup system and takes on the task of removing toxins – thus the rash, irritation and lesions.
Dr. Pagano cited Edgar Cayce as the first to offer this explanation for the cause of psoriasis more than 70 years ago. And although Cayce didn’t specifically use the term “leaky gut” when referring to the seepage of toxins through thin intestinal walls, Dr. Pagano felt it quite obvious that the “Father of Holistic Medicine” was describing the same phenomenon using the language of his day.
Attacking Psoriasis from the Inside Out
Dr. Pagano’s life-altering guide presents a proven, all-natural, safe and healthy program for healing psoriasis. In simple, straightforward language, his book:
- Explains why the disease must be viewed from the inside out
- Reveals the importance of diet, detoxification and attitude in overcoming the disease
- Offers a clear, step-by-step regimen that’s helped many people worldwide win their battle over psoriasis
To achieve his regimen’s goals of clearing out poisons accumulated in the body, and then preventing further intake of toxic elements, Dr. Pagano identified 6 essential measures:
- Internal cleansing
- A high alkaline-low acidic diet
- Specific herbal teas
- Adjustments of the spine
- External applications
- Right thinking – a must in the healing of any disease

Does the Pagano Regimen Really Work?
This question was asked of Dr. Pagano more than any other, and his reply was always yes – and no. His yes answer applied to most of those patients who seriously committed themselves to his regimen. It was a no, however, for those who played at the regimen, didn’t take it seriously enough and were always looking for a quick fix.
As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, and the powerful message of Dr. Pagano’s book is driven home by a variety of before-and-after photos of completely healed patients, such as the one shown below. The subjects of this and many other images in Dr. Pagano’s book are patients who followed through with patience and persistence to bring about their desired end result – triumph over psoriasis.
Learn All You Can about The Natural Alternative
Before John Pagano passed away at age 82 in 2012, I came to know him both professionally and personally, and valued him as a mentor and a friend. I encourage you to learn more about him and his research, as well, and the best way to do that is through Healing Psoriasis: The Natural Alternative. It’s a fascinating read, especially for anyone who’d welcome a resourceful ally in the fight against psoriasis.
