Here’s a bit of brutal history. Back in the days of pirates (not the modern-day kind found on Wall Street) there was a nasty form of punishment which involved lashes with the cat of nine tails–a whip made from rope with nine ends that caused multiple lacerations. To top up the pain, a bucket of sea water was thrown on the open wounds of the poor devil who was getting lashed.
How the heck does this apply to psoriasis? Or to our protocol? Well, this is it in a nutshell. If you have psoriasis, you probably scratch it–because it’s itchy. That has a tendency to break the surface of the skin.
So, you find out about the protocol and mix up the magnesium chloride with some water. Magnesium chloride is a salt (and one of the most common forms found in the Dead Sea). You slap that solution onto your plaques and then find yourself screaming around the house using language reserved for pirates:)
Yes, putting salt on a wound is painful and can turn your already nasty looking plaques bright red. Some people throw in the towel when they see this. Those who have a high pain tolerance (such as Charlie) stick with it. After a few days or weeks, the pain slowly diminishes and the redness recedes. Pay now–fly later.
If you can’t stand the pain, then put the mag solution under your arms (a good place for absorption) or where there aren’t a lot of plaques. The mag solution is taken into your body transdermally.
I didn’t start using the magnesium chloride until after my skin was clear BUT every once in a while I have a paper cut or some other little abrasion and don’t see it until I’ve rubbed the mag onto it. Yup! it smarts!
You can always dilute the solution from the recommended 50/50 ratio until you can tolerate the higher ratio.
But it does work! You just have to become a psoriasis pirate. It’s not as bad as walking the plank!!!
