    yet this one who hasn't much concurrent scientific research has won you over with 179 reviews on amazon.
    I care about results, not how many scientific papers you've churned out. If this book is a pile of crap, where are all the negative reviews? (see Hillary's Hard Choices, for an example of dog poop)

    We know two things to be mostly true:
    1) People are saying it works (179 results)
    That's just from Amazon reviews. You'll find other testimonies on various psoriasis forums, but if you don't care for anecdotal evidence, then you won't find that convincing either.

    2) The Placebo effect is strong.
    The Placebo effect maxes out at around 30%.

    So the chance of people saying something works (especially if it's "natural"), given the placebo effect is quite high. Again, this is the reason for much larger sample sizes and double-blind studies.
    If the only truth you recognize are double blind studies, then I shouldn't have even bothered. See ya.
    'Dr. Stricker says that in multiple studies, tissues taken from Morgellons patients consistently show infection with various kinds of Borrelia spirochetes—mainly Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that’s present in Lyme disease. “As many as 98% of Morgellons patients have evidence of Lyme disease and/or an associated tick-borne infection,” says Dr. Stricker.'

    No problem. It's grown titing. At the end of the day, no study will be published based on amazon reviews, which are known to have shills. The population is heterogenous and no factors can be isolated. You have not given me reason to believe any reason why this causes psoriasis selectively. Also, the placebo effect has varying degrees of effect; it's inherently a psychological factor. Even with this, you have still not accounted for other variables, something a statistician will frown upon. If you think you've said something, cool beans. All I heard was reasons why people should have a firmer grounding in statistics.

    I'm all herbal, I smoke my steak.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped
    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.

    Are you one of those guys that's used to tell if something is indica or sativa dominant by looking at it alone?

    I smoke it first.

    If my heart races, Sativa. If it's a body stoned, Indica.

    It's not 7%. I believe Dr. Pagano claims a 95% success rate with his patients.

    Here are some before and after photos of Dr. Pagano's patients:

    Patients Who Have Been Treated By Dr. Pagano
    Psoriasis affects like 2 or 3% of the WORLD population. Of all different diets, lifestyles, and such. I'm not saying this doctor didn't do great work, or that it doesn't help some people.. Absolutely it does. But his basis is on the fact that it's leaky gut syndrome. I have a hard time believing that's the sole cause of it.

    Have you ever had a patient diagnosed with leaky gut? Like does this happen in medicine?

    I'm still new to medicine, but I can't say I have seen it yet.
