Biografía Since 1986, the various clinical forms of psoriasis have been treated in the Neukirchen Special Clinic using a holistic, complex therapy model. The scientists of the clinic had previously worked for several years with the problem of the causative factors of psoriasis seborrheic dermatitis cause hair loss. The data available today from the literature clearly show that in 50-65% of the cases of psoriasis a genetic disposition is present, which today is compared with the so-called genetic blood marker systems (antigens of the Lewis blood groups, the HLA- and MLC- Systems). It is interesting, however, that in both these cases, as well as in a large number of patients, in whom neither a familial predisposition nor genetic features were recognizable, the disease was only relatively late (usually in the second decade of life). This clearly shows that in addition to the mentioned genetic disposition additional provocation factors have to occur here in order to convert a latent, genetically anchored psoriasis into a clinically defined, visible psoriasis.

Provocation factors of psoric relapses

According to the data available to us, the following are important somatic triggers of psoriatic relapses:

    Skin irritation of chemical or physical nature
    negative climate influences (wet-cold weather, sunglasses)
    Deviations in the humoral or cellular immune function
    recurrent bacterial or mycotic infections of the skin, the airways and the intestine, the long-term intake of various medicines.

Among other things one must first think of: beta blockers, lithium, penicillins, sulfonamides, cimetidine, y-interferon, Means, among others, the consumption of certain foods and supplements which significantly increase the skin's irritation state by the IgE-mediated or pseudoallergic reactions, Pollutants such as pesticides seborrheic keratosis removal at home, fertilizers, wood preservatives, solvents, cosmetic ingredients or heavy metals from dental alloys, jewelery, preservatives, drinking water, the inhibition of the energy metabolism, coupled with low levels of energies (ATP) and cyclic nucleotides (cAMP).
    
Deviations in the purine, protein and fat metabolism,
    a lack of antitoxic function of the liver and the blood (own studies show reduced MAO, DAO and ß-glucuronidase values) as well
    neurohormonal disorders associated with significant catecholamine deviations and blockages of the β receptors.

The negative effect of various psychogenic factors, e.g. Conflict situations, probation, loss of workplace, accidents, operations, divorce, death of relatives and others. was also statistically documented in more than 40% of the psoriatrics. Recent results from our laboratory seborrheic dermatitis cause hair loss show significantly increased norepinephrine levels in the plasma (p <0.005), which indicate a chronically altered response in neurohormonal regulation in the psoriatist. The negative stress effects on cellular immune function have also been reported in the literature.
