Psoriasis and Alkaline, Ionized Water  
by E. Jean Perrins
According to Dr. Kenneth Seaton and the book Prostate Health in 90 Days by Larry
Clapp, Ph.D. J.D., allergies are not caused by allergens such as pollens, house mites,
dust or other such substances. While it is true that these types of things trigger
allergic symptoms, the underlying cause is a malfunctioning immune system;
"Immunity gone wrong". And, it is all triggered by a water shortage in the body.
When there is an inner drought, the body actives a neurotransmitter called histamine.
Histamine has two functions, one is to manage the immune system and the other is
to manage the available water supply.

Histamine protects vital organs and body processes by practicing drought
management. Histamine activates and we appear to have an allergic response. But
what is more subtle, is when our intestines are affected. When there is an intestinal
water shortage we become more sensitive to triggers called allergens. We appear to
have sensitivities to certain substances which create symptoms in our bodies that
make us feel unwell.

The allergen simply triggers an incorrect immune system response. In a sense, the
immune system identifies the harmless allergen and tries to kill it. The allergic
symptoms many of us are so familiar with, runny noses, watery eyes, itching, etc.,
are direct signs of our immune systems trying to kill these harmless substances. This
type of immunological mayhem cannot be separated from the stress put on our
immune systems from infections (in many cases sub-clinical infections). Many
auto-immune diseases can be viewed as a severe form of allergy where the immune
system attacks its owner. Psoriasis is one of them.

Let me explain. Between eighty and ninety percent of your immune system is in your
gut. In simplistic terms, you have an outer mucous layer, a under layer containing
zonulin protein and some patches called Payer's Patches. This area of the intestines
must be fully hydrated to function well.

The mucous layer allows the food to slide along the gut and protect the zonulin
protein and the Payers Patches. In a dehydration response, the mucous layer partially
dries up. When you eat scratchy food or strongly harsh foods, you can also damage
the mucous layer. What happens then is the first stage of allergic response. I use the
analogy of a tile floor. When the floor is new and shiny, the grouting is all in place,
there is no way that the subfloor can get dirty. When the floor is abused, the tiles
crack and the grouting starts to fall out, especially when it is dehydrated. The
subfloor starts to collect dirt and debris. What happens in the gut is that the subfloor,
too gets dirty. This is called leaky gut syndrome and is when allergies and
auto-immune problems start. Leaky gut syndrome is when partially digested food
leaks into the cellular lining of the intestinal walls. Histamine activates its drought
management policy because there is a water shortage and. in addition activates the
immune system to kill the invading forces, in this case partially digested food.

In cases of serious allergic reactions, the leaky gut syndrome starts affecting the
Payer's Patches. This is where your immune system starts. These Patches produce
B-lymphocytes, one of the first steps in immune response. Through a process of
chemical and hormonal signaling these produce monocytes, dendrites then signal the
thymus to form T-cells. The T-cells that have the biggest effect on immune disorders
are the Natural Killer T-Cells or NKT's. When the signal goes awry, B-lymphocytes are
cranked out of the Payer's Patches in great numbers which, at the end of the
hormonal signaling chain, also crank out NKT's. Unfortunately, this malfunction
creates a situation where the NKT's seem to 'think' that they have to respond to the
histamine that has gathered as a result of dehydration. This creates a response that
they need to 'eat' whatever has caused the histamine response. They begin eating
whatever they are close to, in this case, the skin, resulting in psoriasis and other skin
disorders.

When the skin is dehydrated, it causes histamine to gather in the spots where
dehydration is the worst. The dehydration also activates the immune system which
eats away at the layers of skin causing reddening and scaling. The skin attempts to
repair itself by speeding up the cycle of cell replacement and the scaling deepens. The
itching and scaling breaks down the acid mantle on the skin, which further
compromises the immune system. This auto-immune disease started with
dehydration and cascaded into skin inflammation. The dehydration response in the
body can simply be relieved with clean, healthy water. The healthiest water for the
body is alkaline, ionized water. It is split into two streams by an electrolysis unit - one
alkaline and the other acidic. The alkaline water relieves the dehydration because it is
broken up into little bunches of water molecules.

These smaller bunches can enter the cells more efficiently. It is like me saying to you,
"Put this apple in your mouth." You can't do it, it doesn't fit. If you cut the apple up
into small pieces, they easily fit into your mouth. Your cells are no different. The body
becomes acidic from dehydration, so when you drink lots (at least half your body
weigh in ounces) of alkaline ionized water, the cells become hydrated, the cell
function is restored and the histamine response diminishes because it is no longer
needed.

To restore the skin's acid mantle and keep the skin moist, the acidic component of
the water is dabbed on the skin where the psoriatic lesions are located. As the skin's
pH is restored and is rehydrated from within, the skin starts growing "normal" cells
again and the "eating" frenzy stops. After a while, the skin looks normal again as long
as you keep drinking lots of alkaline, ionized water. A few different food choices help
too.


About The Author

Jean Perrins is a retired nurse and an alkaline, ionized water specialist. She has been
field testing the effects of structured water on health in her clinic with sometimes
astounding results. It is clear that water has an affect on health that we, in the West
are just beginning to understand.  Jean is currently working with a team to develop
microbicidal and Free Active Chlorine applications to revolutionize industrial and
agricultural methods using Invins-AbleTM electrochemically activated water. She and
her team believe that Invins-AbleTM will help eliminate antibiotic and hormone use in
food animals and will allow cleaning and chemical services to do more and more
processes with this structured water. The economic and environmental savings are
astounding. Check out

The digestive tract is central to
health, particularly the intestines. If
they are not in top form, lots of
things happen in the body that lead to
illness and disease. Besides the blood
and the lymph, the digestive tract
uses a large amount of water. You
need approximately two quarts of
water just to digest a meal. Water is
also lost from the body through
urination, defecation, perspiration and
respiration. The body will pull water
from wherever it can, but if there is
not enough, certain troubling
symptoms start to appear.
