Diabetes & Psoriasis

A 73 year old woman came to the center suffering from what she described as a “dry, itchy, and sandy” scalp, and was diagnosed with Psoriasis.  In her meeting with Dr. Song, she explained that she has been diabetic for 10 years and had tried various means of treatment, from retail shampoos to Western creams, but there had been no improvements.  After a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Song discerned that the woman’s diabetes were the cause for her Psoriasis.  Dr. Song then gave her dietary recommendations regarding her dry skin condition, customized herbal drink for controlling her blood sugar and other diabetic related symptoms, and customized external herbal wash for the scalp that were to be applied nightly before bedtime. Within the first week, the “dry, itchy, and sandy” feeling improved and the Psoriasis was completely expunged.


A 66 year old man with type II diabetes came into the center seeking treatment for his condition. He has been using insulin injection for the past 38 years and had a variety of diabetes-induced complications, such as glaucoma, tremors, ulcer, and insomnia. When he came into the center, both of his ankles and feet were ulcerated. Despite his nurse having been attending his house to change the dressing of the ulceration daily, the ulcer had deepened, and the end result would be the need for an amputation. Dr. Song composed an herbal formula made specifically for him. Within 2 weeks the man was seeing improvements! His ankles had gotten significantly dryer, and after 2 months the ulcer had healed up almost completely!
