Interestingly, some research indicates that pH levels may also be affected by seasonal changes. Many patients with eczema and psoriasis see a marked improvement over the summer months, only to relapse once winter arrives. There is some evidence to suggest that the summertime improvement may be related not only to increased sunlight levels, but increased humidity and greater water consumption, all of which aid in balancing acidity and alkalinity.
How does pH affect psoriasis?

As with many other conditions, pH imbalance can have multifold negative impacts on psoriasis. Organs work harder to balance the system, stored minerals are used up, toxins are filtered though the skin to compensate for the workload placed on other organs, and some researchers believe it may also lead to leaky gut syndrome. Oftentimes people with a pH imbalance suffer from joint pain and arthritis as well as skin problems.
Increased acidity in the body may create an environment that aggravates psoriasis. When the system becomes too acidic, organs such as the kidneys have to work extra hard to return the system to more alkaline levels. In order to achieve this, sodium, potassium and often calcium are utilized, depleting our mineral reserves. These minerals are often leached from the bones, and unless foods or supplements containing these minerals are consumed, mineral stores may remain low or depleted, which over time can lead to even worse health problems, including osteoporosis.
If you have read our articles on toxicity, you already know that increased toxicity from overtaxed organs can greatly impact inflammatory conditions like psoriasis. Just to quickly review, when organs like the kidneys and liver cannot effectively filter toxins from the blood, other organs like the skin and lungs take over the job of filtration. When this occurs, toxins, which usually are excreted through the urine, end up on the surface of the skin and exacerbate existing conditions like acne, psoriasis, and eczema. In the instance of an overly acidic system, the kidneys are working very hard to balance the system, and may not be effectively doing their job of filtering toxins. This can compound existing problems of overtoxicity, leading to systemic problems throughout the body.
For example, an acidic system can lead to leaky gut syndrome, which many researches consider one of the main driving factors in increased psoriasis flare-ups. "Leaky gut" is the term some researchers use to describe a condition where the intestines actually develop small holes and leak toxins and particulate food matter back into the system. This is most often caused by poor dietary choices. The toxins and particles travel through the system and can cause inflammation both internally and externally. Read more about leaky gut.

Thanks you #1

As you know, Grandma and Grandpa both have some joint pain, and it is noticably better in the summer.

Keeping warm and sunlight? Helps raise ph at a high level.

Good work Sister
