My 10-Year Psoriasis is Gone!
- Naomi S.
I had suffered with Psoriasis for more than 10 years, my skin was very dry and itchy all the times, and I had to constantly scratch my arms, making me very uncomfortable in front of people. At night time, I couldn't sleep because the itchiness. The affected skin looked very bad as it can make anyone feel bad by just looking at it. I never have the confidence to wear any short-sleeve shirt or tank top like other people do even in the very hot summer days, not to mention wearing swimsuit enjoy the San Diego beaches. I had always felt that I had to hide from people; it was really a psychological heavy burden which affected my personality’s overall balanced development.
Before Dr. Liu, I had seen many doctors. All of them kept giving me medications, but none of them could get me better. The cream that my dermatologist prescribed was very strong, it can only be used for 5 days, and then I had to stop using it for another 5 days. But by the end of the 5 th day, the bacteria grow back and the cycle never stopped, and it got worse and worse in the past few years which stressed me out, I was very anxious, tired due to being unable to sleep well and depressed because of this problem.
I am very lucky to find Dr. Liu and I was amazed by the fact that the first treatment stopped the itchy feeling. I remembered the skin also looked better and I slept very well at that night. Each following session made not only my skin get better and better, but emotionally, I became more calming, confident and positive. After 2 month treatment with Dr. Liu's therapy, the psoriasis over my arms, legs and back were all gone.
One year has passed, my skin is even healthier and smoother. I am very glad about the stable healing result. Now I can wear short-sleeve shirt and skirt anytime I want. I would like to say thanks from my heart to Dr. Liu and his excellent technique which changed me into a new person. I highly recommend whoever has shared my same experience try this great, amazing and drug-free therapy!

What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disease. There are five types of this disease, each with unique signs and symptoms. About 10% and 30% of people with psoriasis get a related form of arthritis called “psoriatic arthritis,” which causes inflammation of the joints.
The most common type of psoriasis is plaque psoriasis. About 80% of people who develop psoriasis have plaque psoriasis, which appears as patches of raised, reddish skin covered by silvery-white scale. These patches, or plaques, frequently form on the elbows, knees, lower back, and scalp. However, the plaques can occur anywhere on the body.
The other types are guttate psoriasis (small, red spots on the skin), pustular psoriasis (white pustules surrounded by red skin), inverse psoriasis (smooth, red lesions form in skin folds), and erythrodermic psoriasis (widespread redness, severe itching, and pain).
Regardless of type, psoriasis usually causes discomfort. The skin often itches, and it may crack and bleed. In severe cases, the itching and discomfort may keep a person awake at night, and the pain can make everyday tasks difficult.
Psoriasis is a chronic, meaning lifelong, condition because there is currently no cure. People often experience flares and remissions throughout their life. Controlling the signs and symptoms typically requires lifelong therapy.
Treatment depends on the severity and type of psoriasis. Some psoriasis is so mild that the person is unaware of the condition. A few develop such severe psoriasis that lesions cover most of the body and hospitalization is required. These represent the extremes. Most cases of psoriasis fall somewhere in between.
Who Gets Psoriasis
More than 4.5 million adults in the United States have been diagnosed with psoriasis, and approximately 150,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. An estimated 20% have moderate to severe psoriasis.
