What if psoriasis is not a disease.

What if psoriasis is not a disease as such but instead a natural coping strategy for ridding the body of excess toxins?

We as humans became fat adapted apes which was a process that took at least 200,000 years. Caveman were hunter gatherers and ate animals, the meat was rich in nutrients and free from toxins. Toxins are what plants use use to defend themselves from being eaten. Plants are like all other things, they don’t want to be killed and eaten so many of them use powerful poisons to deter bacteria, insects and animls from consuming them.

Hunter-Gatherers had the lions share of animal meat (especially the men) where fat was the prize because it gave them strength and vitality. The fat that cavemen prized so much was an essential process for them to get enough calories to grow big brains. This only came possible after humans learned how to cook meat and that helped them kill off bactera which otherwise would make the meat go rancid.

However, it’s hard and dangerous catching and killing a wild animal and so our developing ancestors had a life of feast and famine, often going days without neither food or water. Along the way humans also lost a lot of the digestive mechanisms that our ape cousins still have in place for eating plants.


The payoff is we grew huge brains.Naturally, cavemen did intermittent fasting, the process puts the body into autophagy.Autophagy cleanses the body of toxins and forces cells into processes that are not usually stimulated when a steady stream of fuel from food is always present.When we fast, the body does not have its usual access to glucose, forcing the cells to resort to other means and materials to produce energy.
