Introduction: Psoriasis is a chronic (long-lasting) inflammatory skin condition that is partly caused by an overactive immune system. The exact cause of psoriasis is unknown. However, it is clear that the immune system, environmental factors, and family history can play a significant role in triggering this condition.

The immune system is somehow a trigger, which can cause a series of consequences in the future, including inflammation and acceleration of skin cell growth. Instead of falling off (shedding), the cells pile up on the surface of the skin, forming psoriatic plaques.

This action causes the skin cell growth up to 10 times faster than normal. Instead of shedding, these skin cells pile up on the surface and form red patches, or lesions, called plaques. Psoriasis is characterized by sudden or gradual development of reddened, thick, itchy patches of silvery scales (raised layers of dead skin flakes) that cause mild to intense itching, usually in the elbows, knees, scalp, hands, trunk and/or nails.

The Aim: – When bee products are used as antioxidant stimulators of the immune system, they assist in correcting changes in psoriasis.

Materials and methods:
Materials which are used in the work with 15 patients with psoriasis are bee products: honey, propolis, pollen, royal jelly beeswax, with the use of low-calorie diet.

Results: With two patients, there were no results because they unexpectedly stopped the treatment. With other three that had the mild case of psoriasis, with the use of API-detoxification and the low-calorie diet, changes on the skin disappeared. 

The third group of 10 patients which had a full treatment experienced the disappearance of the changes on the skin in a period of 1 to 3 months.
If psoriasis is perceived as a metabolic disorder, then with the regulation of body weight, blood pressure, blood glucose and lipid status with the use of API-detoxifying bee products, low calorie diets and elimination of risk factors healing is achieved in mild and moderate cases of psoriasis.

: psoriasis, API-detoxification, low-calorie diet.
