Psoriasis triggersare not universal. What may cause one person's psoriasis to become active, may not affect another. Established psoriasis triggers include:
Stress
can cause psoriasis to flare for the first time or aggravate existing psoriasis. Relaxation and stress reduction may help prevent stress from impacting psoriasis.
Injury to skin

Psoriasis can appear in areas of the skin that have                      been injured or traumatized. This is called the                        Koebner [KEB-ner] phenomenon. 

Vaccinations, sunburns and scratches can all                      trigger a Koebner response. The Koebner                      phenomenon can be treated if it is caught early enough.​​

Infection
Anything that can affect the immune system can affect psoriasis.

​​Certain medications are associated with triggering psoriasis, including:Lithium, Antimalarials, Inderal, Quinidine, and Indomethacin.

        What You Should Know About Psoriasis             Why Sitting Too Long May Lead to Diseases

​​​A WALK OF HEALING  -  August 2018


AUGUST HEALTH AND WELLNESS NEWSLETTER


​I've always been an active individual -- never one to enjoy sitting in one place very long. But throughout the years, I have held certain positions and assignments that required sitting for long periods of time. Writers, editors, accountants, telemarketers and researchers are only a few of the occupations that require extended periods of sitting at a computer.

     However, research completed over the last five years reveal a                       disturbing finding:Sitting too much can have detrimental                     affects on your health.

                Did you know that long periods of sitting places you at                risk for organ damage to your heart, pancreas and                      colon? Research published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, for instance, showed that women who sit for 10 or more hours a day may have a significantly greater risk of developing heart disease than those who sit for five hours or less.

Prolonged sitting also has shown an increase in digestive disorders, brain damage, posture problems including strained neck and back problems, muscle degeneration, hip problems, varicose veins and weak bones. In other words, too much sitting can shorten your life span!

​​In September's Health News:How to combat the issue of sitting too long and avoid being a coach potato.
