I HAVE HAD PSORIASIS FOR OVER 22 YEARS.
Hello my name is Chris, this is my site, I do the research and write a lot of the articles (along with some other authors who are well informed about psoriasis and psoriasis treatment) for my websites and others. I also own Silly Goat Soap Company. I do all this because I have been dealing with my psoriasis for a very long time, and I do care about you, what you are going through, and what can we do about treating our affliction .
You know, as well as I do, that it is a disorder that is frustrating, embarrassing, depressing and sometimes just exasperating – it just TORKS YOU OFF to no-end and there is really nothing you can do about it. You can buy the topical treatments, go to the doctor and get steroids of all kinds, go to the tanning booth, and all sorts of things, that do help us keep the break outs down and the redness and flaking at a minimum, but in the end. We still have psoriasis and we still have dry flaky, scaly skin that, still makes us mad, embarrassed and sometime very sad.
I am going to my wife's company picnic today and the first thing I asked her this morning was, "Is it ok if I wear shorts?" "Would she be embarrassed if I did and how bad was my psoriasis looking on my knees and elbows?" But that is the just how life is for those of us that are dealing with this disorder.
So you got to do something for your self, right? Can't sit around and cry about it, can you?…
We own a little farm in upstate, New York and I work from the farm. My wife, daughter and I wanted to get back to nature a little and be more self-sufficient, to just get healthier. I know from my years of research that we are getting pumped full of steroids, chemicals, growth hormones and nasty stuff from the big farms and food processing corporations out there. NONE of it is any good for us, especially if we have psoriasis, our bodies cannot filter out all of those harsh chemicals through our kidneys and livers like other people can. All of that garbage comes out through our skin in the form of dry, silvery, flack, scaly, nasty skin.
So what we did was start growing our own fruits, vegetables, and herbs and we dry or can as much as we get, so we can get through the winter and hopefully do not have to buy stuff from the store. We also started raising our own beef, pigs, meat chickens and have a coop full of laying hens for our eggs. We feed the best feed to our animals as we can afford, organic feed is so expensive, and we do not have the equipment, or storage to grow or own animal feed. even though I would like to some day.
We also wanted to have fresh milk and again after much research decided that goats would be the best bang for our buck. We could get fresh milk, cheese, make our own soaps and lotions with the extra milk that is awesome for our skin. So, that is what we did. We started our goat herd with registered Lamancha goats. We like the temperament of them, the milk fat in their milk, and the taste. We also ended up with a lot of extra milk.
I know you cannot do all that we are doing. Most people are not in a situation that they can raise all of their own food but you gotta start some where. Why not start with what you put in your mouth and what you put on your skin?
I started Silly Goats Soap Company because I know the pain and suffering you go through as psoriasis sufferers and I can help a little with the skin care aspect. And even if you do not have psoriasis, most of you have families. I love my children and spouse as I am sure you do too. Get away from those mass produced chemical laden poison bars they call soap and look into good products for your loved ones.
Here are some of the benefits of goats milk soap:
- The lactic acid in goat’s milk helps to break down skin cells, aiding the natural process through which we continually shed old cells as new ones are formed.
- Naturally rich in alpha-hydroxy acids , which is known for soothing and rejuvenating skin.
- Goat’s milk has the closest PH level to our skin. This helps protect our skin from invading bacteria and chemicals.
- highly rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins. Goat Milk contains over fifty essential nutrients, like vitamins A, B1, B6, B12, C and E, minerals, citric acid, amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, natural enzymes.
- Vitamin A slows down the aging of our skin, helps prevent brown spots and the thickening of skin.
- Packed with luxurious cream for moisturizing your body and healing your skin.
- No harmful chemicals, all natural.
- There are many other benefits of goats milk soaps but you get the point.
Our old-fashion, Pine Tar & Goats milk Soap, Pine tar is a dark vegetable liquid from pine trees that can be combined with goats milk to make a gentle, healing soap bar. Pine tar soap is known for its therapeutic benefits for rashes such as psoriasis and eczema. It is also said to heal inflammations caused by poison ivy, poison sumac, sunburn and insect bites. It does have a very unique smell to it, but if you are one who suffers from skin conditions, it’s uniqueness would be appreciated!
The Oatmeal & Honey Soap is the one that I use the most for my psoriasis. The ground oatmeal is a natural exfolient and gentle on the psoriasis. The oatmeal milk essential oils, are a fantastic moisturizer and has anti-inflammatory properties. The Honey, is long known for its anti-fungal and healing qualities. The goats milk and natural oils of coconut, olive, and palm just add to this wonderfully healing, creamy bar of soap.
and I have "Tea Tree", and Doggie Soap", curing on the shelves and I am working on a Pine Tar soap recipe, as well as goats milk lotions and will have them available soon!
