In this article, I thought of sharing my personal experience meeting a customer of mine who had bought the functional food which is a botanical beverage mix from Japan for his skin issue.
The mixture for our immune system was launched in Malaysia not too long ago.
A few days after the launch, I’ve received a message from a person asking about the effectiveness of for his skin issue.
I have seen some testimonials on Facebook where the users shared that they experienced positive results on their skin.
There were “before and after” pictures where it has helped to relieve rashes on their skin, acne, skin infection and light psoriasis.
I know the mixture drink does help with skin condition, but I told him the end results actually depends on individual.
As a disclaimer, I told him the product is not meant to cure any sickness, it is just a vitamin to help regulate our immune system.
The healing effect is actually done by our activated immune system.
I told him, “I can’t guarantee that it will help with your psoriasis and the only way to know for sure is to try it”.
He said he wanted to try and I helped him to register for a member account. He then proceed to purchase multiple boxes of the product on his own.
I didn’t hear from him for a couple of months and in mid of April, I received a message from him saying he is happy with the product.
In fact he was quite surprised that it actually helped to overcome his psoriasis issue.
I told him I was very happy that the product worked for him.
I didn’t hear from him for the next couple of days.
Recently, I received a call from him requesting for a meet up. He wanted to know how he could share the product with his friends.
We’ve arranged for a meeting in a shopping mall. When I first saw him, he looked normal to me.
When we sat down to chat, he told me he actually had very serious psoriasis.
I asked him, “How could it be?”. He looked perfectly normal to me.
And then he shared with me his experience having psoriasis which started a few years back.
He had tried everything in his quest to find a cure. From steroid injection to all natural remedy.
However, the relieve on his psoriasis was only temporary. After a while, it will return.
When he contacted me back in January 2019, he was very desperate to find a solution and was about to make a trip overseas to seek treatment.
To him, trying botanical beverage drink to overcome his psoriasis was a long shot. He figured he had already tried so many remedies, might as well try it as well.
I listened intently to him sharing how he consumed it. Sometimes when he was feeling desperate, he will take up to 10 sachets in a day!
He told me in the beginning, he did not see much improvement on his skin, but he could feel something different in his body and the itchiness on his skin was not as intense.
He could at least start having a proper night sleep without being woken up by intense itchiness on his skin.
It was only after 3 months of consuming it daily, he started noticing his psoriasis clearing.
When I chatted with him, I could not see any sign of psoriasis on his face, neck, arm etc. He then showed me some of the psoriasis skin marks on the side of his belly.
After that meeting, I have a new profound amazement on it.
Doing my research on psoriasis
What causes psoriasis?
According to healthline.com.
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition that causes the rapid buildup of skin cells. This buildup of cells causes scaling on the skin’s surface.
When you have psoriasis, the T cells in your immune system triggered and become overactive and start attacking healthy skin cells by mistakes, as it to heal a wound or to fight in infection.
Overactive T cells also trigger increased production of healthy skin cells, more T cells and other white blood cells, especially neutrophils. The neutrophils then travel into the skin causing redness and sometimes pus in pustular lesions.
It seems, there is no cure for it. There are only treatments to manage it.
To be honest, I am not entirely sure how the botanical mixture helped to relieve psoriasis.
But I do know one of the benefits of the product is to help to activate macrophages in our body. One of the roles of the macrophages is to regulate our immune system.
Since psoriasis is associated with an over active immune system, most probably the ingredients in the product helped to calm down the T cells and other white blood cells thus reducing the effect of psoriasis.
Nonetheless, I am really glad and happy that my friend has found a solution to his skin issue.
