    • I would think they would all irritate it. Do you have psorasis? I ask because it is often nutritionally related. I know several people who used to have it but don't anymore.

    • Just a guess.

      My mother is a hair dresser and Logics with a 10 lift may do it and dont use a hair dryer to apply it.  Do your roots as needed dont pull through every time you do roots unless the color fades.  Color stays on for about 45 mins only with no cap or heat.  Need hairdresser license to buy.

      Id apply carefully not to touch skin as much as possible.  Also Sallys has some little round wipes that remove hair dye from skin I love.  Its called Dyzoff I think.  I dont know if it would irritate skin.

    • I will have to tell my hairdresser about Logics.

      Yes, it’s nutrition related, but what I can’t have is

      no coffee
      no sugar,
      no dairy,
      no wheat,
      no gluten,
      no meat,
      no chicken,
      no chocolate....

      NO LIFE..... NO THANK YOU

      I actually stuck to this diet for three months, and got rid of all of the psoriasis except the scalp.

      Stress has a lot to do with it, and how do I deal with that?

    • Yana,
      I had to laugh, even though I know it isn’t funny. I was on a very strict diet about 6 years ago because of health issues. My liver shut down, and rather than take drugs I did a liver friendly diet for awhile. It was not fun!
      Although I can't promise you that Mannatech's Optimal Health system would make it go away, I can promise you that you won't have to do without all those foods, and I can promise you that you'll be more healthy.. AND I can promise you that if you aren't satisfied, you get your money back. There is no 'measurement' for satisfaction. Either you love it, or it's free. To be fair though, it takes several months for most people to see results - which is why the guarantee is good for 6 whole months. I was noticing results after about 6 weeks. For my mom, it was only two weeks. I have another friend who had to be diligent for 5 1/2 months before the aches and pains she had in her knees went away. Everybody's body is different, but we are all lacking in glyconutrients, and it manifests itself in different ways for different people. Allergies are just one of them. All auto-immune conditions are a result of improper cellular communication. If we can provide the body with what it needs for the cells to communicate properly then it only makes sense that issues related to communication would improve.  

      Sharing Hope,

      Dee Dee, who also needs to color her hair soon!

    • My aunt had it really bad & she had a tanning bed in her house to help.  I don’t know how it works & we all have heard how tanning beds are bad for our skin.  Maybe you only use it for a few minutes.  I have a lot of skin problems as well as psoriasis.  I have contact dermatitis & I am allergic to everything.  I can eat one thing one day & not be able to the next.  When my husband kisses me, I break out in a rash.  It is something I have learned to live with.  Because I have such a hard time taking medications, I use children’s benedryl (only 1/2 a dose) when the itching is so intense.  I don’t know why my psoriasis is good one week & worse the next.  I do try to eat whole foods & not so much processed.  That is really hard as well!!  I also have severe acid reflux & a spastic esphogus.  I take one protonix a day for it.  There is no cure or surgery to help.  I have to go in every other year to be checked for cancer & have my throat stretched.  I also have IBS & it is under control.  I really think it has a lot to do with what we eat & STRESS.  On top of all of this, I have thyroid disease.  Now, at one point in my life, I was so depressed, then I decided I wanted to be happy & changed what I could in my life (what I can control).  I try to do everything in moderation.  That is my motto.  Plus, when I hear about some of these wonderful women who have so much pain every day, I am thankful things aren’t worse than they are!!

    • I have spent a lot of time on researching Psoriasis, because not only was I lucky to end up with it, I had to be “special” psoriasis was a very first symptom that later appeared to be Psoriatic Arthritis, what’s that? I call it Rheumatoid Arthritis with a twist.  So not only are your joints in pain you have skin patches of psoriasis, reallly, realllllly attractive.

      The ultimate treatment, and I know all Medical Doctors don’t believe in it, but I’m a walking proof that it works. The Dead Sea, I call it
      Miracle of Nature I spent three weeks there 2 hours on the sun and 4 hours in the shade every day. You have to know me to appreciate the irony, I can't sit for a second, but not having much choice (I arrived limping from pain and covered in psoriasis) The first week was hell, the second was beyond hell and only on the 18th day did I start to get better. On the 21st day when I left my skin was clear and I had no pain, and was meds free.

      May I also ad, that IBS which of course I have, and the acid reflex were also non apparent, WHY, because the Dead Sea is DEAD, the average age of the visitors is 85 and there I was Fabulously40 no one to talk to my own age. After few days of going nuts I had to chill out and RELAX...as the life guard encouraged me to do...as I began to socialize with the “youngsters” who were in their 9th and sometimes 10th decade, I began to appreciate the free time and the abundance of it...my brain was fried from the sun so no reading, writing or even desire to do anything except eat, sleep and relax was necessary.  

      I came home a new person. No symptoms of anything .....I was truly Fabulously40.

      I know what you want to know....How long did it last? This life of no symptoms...

      NOT LONG....IBS came back as soon as the stress did, if I remained on the diet my psoriasis was under control, but as soon as I stressed out and my stomach acted up so did the skin.

      The moral of the story?

      My grandpa always said:

      That ALL sicknesses are from STRESS and only Syphilis is from pleasure.

      Now, if anyone has a chill pill that works I would like to hear about it.

    • i think you should find a colorist to do your color off the scalp. You can foil color onto your hair without it touching the scalp. Also Baliage is a technique that is color applied freehanded onto the hair without touching your scapl. Also the old school frosting cap can be used to protect your scalp

    • Yana,
      If I told you I had the answer, would you try it?
      I just wrote out a long description of how our Core 4 System works, and what it does to support your body... and my browser session expired. :( boohoo
      The bottom line is - our bodies are missing key ingredients to keep the cells healthy, and communicating properly. If we can restore our cells, we can restore our health. One of the key components missing is the one that provided communication between the cells. Auto-immune diseases are a result of what? Improper cellular communication!
      So - if you would like to try the Optimal Health system for 6 months - just to see if it can improve your health - there is a 100% guarantee if you aren’t satisfied.  

      Sharing Hope,

      Dee Dee

    • Dee Dee,

      My problem is I’m consistently inconsistent, there is no way I can stick to any kind of structure for six month.

      I tried it few years ago, but like you said, it takes time and patience....I lack both.

    • I just added it to my mealtime routine. We even have some little packets that I can keep in my purse when I am on the go.  

      Once I got consistent for a few weeks, my body would remind me when I forgot. :)  

      Sharing Hope,

      Dee Dee

    • I was there this summer & brought back some Dead Sea water for my friend who’s 4 yr old daughter has it..but she said that being in the CA sun and being in the pool helped her daughter too and it has also disappeared...

      Also the Dead Sea mud is great too!

      I could only spend 10 mts in the water at a time...it was hot in the summertime, & I had to shower off in the cool shower on the beach often..
