How to aid in healing psoriasis:
When it comes to psoriasis, I have spent many years getting to know this condition better than I would like, however its not something we have to just live with anymore. My grandfather, and mother are extreme cases and currently I have a mild spots that come and go. Seeing my Mom suffer has taught me about the medications they use and try alternative methods to relieve its effects. I will discuss only those that I have seen work, and experienced myself.
To begin with, you should stop using any body product that includes alcohol, or any harmful chemicals to include shampoo, conditioner, body soaps (I suggest Ivory or homemade soap using recipes from this link DrAxe.com), scented lotions, deodorant, etc. Taking just 15 minutes of your time, you can make all of your own products that will last for weeks if not months, and actually save you money. Plus it is all natural ingredients, which aid in the healing of psoriasis instead of working against it, drying it out further and causing more irritation. Essential oils is called for in just about every recipe, so for psoriasis I recommend using Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, and Lavender oil.
(Please note that when using baking soda, use NON-ALUMINUM baking soda & 100% pure aloe vera gel, which can be found at most grocery stores in the organic section. By visiting DrAxe.com you can find recipes to replace any of these products, many of which I use now along with further information about eating habits that will help as well. )
For bathing and topical spray solution for psoriasis, I highly recommend using Dead Sea Salt. Use 2 Cups per bath and for spray use 1/8 tsp. per 1 oz. of sterile, distilled, or bottled water. If at all possible and for best results, take a bath every day and soak as long as you can. You should notice a difference within just a few days. For spot treating and areas that cannot be soaked, spray the salt solution on 2-3x per day allowing it to dry naturally.
There is a foam product called Olux, which I have found to be very effective when in an outbreak, but not for continued use to keep it away.

How to aid in healing Eczema:
Home Remedies involving carrot pastes, virgin coconut oil, aloe vera gel, cucumber slices, and oatmeal baths have also been connected to reducing eczema symptoms. Eliminating fruits and vegetables that have been sprayed with pesticides and herbicides can help eliminate those toxins from the body, which exacerbate skin conditions. Also, increasing your intake of omega-3 fatty acids with foods like salmon, eggs, organic nuts, tuna, or flax seeds can improve this skin condition.
In my personal experience, Dead Sea Salt also clears the skin when used daily. Click this link to purchase DSS.
There are also a number of behavioral changes that can be made which can improve the symptoms of eczema.
How to aid in healing candida:
Coconut has been shown to prevent and even cure candida. It provides relief from the inflammation caused by candida, both externally and internally. Its high moisture retaining capacity keeps the skin from cracking or peeling off. Further, unlike other pharmaceutical treatments for candida, the effects of coconut oil is gradual and not drastic or sudden, which gives the patient an appropriate amount of time to get used to the withdrawal symptoms or Herxheimer Reactions (the name given to the symptoms accompanying body’s rejection of toxins generated during elimination of these fungi). But, in the treatment of this condition, people should systematically and gradually increase their dosages of coconut oil and shouldn’t initially start with a large quantity.
