Q. “I've had psoriasis all my life. Can True Moisture® Clinical Lipid Therapy® Cream cure my psoriasis?”
No. It does not cure psoriasis. True Moisture® Clinical Lipid Therapy® Cream is not a drug and does not cure any disease. However, since you asked, I would like to share some interesting insight into the treatment of psoriasis, especially resistant psoriasis. I look at psoriasis and many other dry skin type diseases as two different conditions. For example, with psoriasis, I see two skin problems:
Condition # 1: A depleted skin barrier.
Condition # 2: Basic psoriasis (a medical problem).
In my opinion, the best way to treat psoriasis is to treat two problems, not just one. Clinical common sense tells me that the patient needs total skin treatment. If I treat just one aspect of psoriasis, the patient is not fully treated. I call this method “ABC 1 + 2 Therapy.” First, I treat the depleted barrier by the ABC’s and lipid moisturization therapy. Second, I treat the patient’s actual psoriasis by appropriate medicines. I find that treating both problems gives much quicker relief. Patients are happier with results.
Case in point: Tazorac™ therapy for psoriasis. Tazorac™ gel can be very irritating to the point that some patients discontinue its use. I have found Tazorac™ therapy to be much better tolerated if I treat the dry depleted skin barrier prior to starting Tazorac™ therapy. True moisturization gives the Tazorac™ and other psoriatic medicines a chance to really work at their optimum potential. This same ABC 1 + 2 therapeutic principle also applies to the clinical treatment of atopic dermatitis, hand eczema, eyelid eczema, Retin-A™ rash, and other forms of eczema.
“ABC 1 + 2 Therapy”
First, Treat Condition #1: The depleted skin barrier.
Second, Treat Condition #2: The medical problem.
A common patient mistake is to use topical steroids as a moisturizer. Please note, a steroid is not intended for long-term use as a moisturizer. They can thin your skin and may cause harmful side effects. ABC 1 + 2 Therapy can help to reduce the amount of harmful steroids used in these conditions. So, think ABC 1 + 2 Therapy. Give your psoriasis a 1 + 2 knock out punch!
Finally, to answer your question: True Moisture® skin care products do not heal psoriasis. However, psoriasis, eczema, and other dry skin patients can moisturize with True Moisture® Clinical Lipid Therapy® Creams A and B.
