"A rather remarkable twofold approach towards relieving the itchy misery of psoriasis is by eating half of an avocado daily and applying chamomile flower extract to the skin. The oils in the avocado will work internally towards the surface of the skin, soothing deep muscle inflammation. The oils help the skin to literally repair itself from the damage done by psoriasis."
