Why Beets May Beat Psoriasis


May 26, 2010

Juice therapy is believed to clear up this skin condition "Many people with psoriasis have congestion in the bowels and liver," says Cherie Calbom, MS, a certified nutritionist in Kirkland, Washington, and coauthor of Juicing for Life. "A high-fiber diet will absorb toxins in the gut, and beet juice is wonderful to help detoxify the liver."

Because beets have a strong flavor, she suggests blending beet juice with carrot juice and lemon. "One beet to four carrots (add one-fourth of a lemon to improve the flavor) is an ideal proportion," according to Calbom. She recommends drinking one glass of the beet juice every day.
