Pierre: You have psoriasis? Please tell me when and where it started.
OK, what else can you tell me about it?
Well, I wonder if it doesn’t bother you why did you come to see me?
Describe how it makes you feel, please.

“The psoriasis is clearing up. I’ll call you when it doesn’t.”
I present this case because for someone with a skin disorder he does not display the common emotional aspects. People with skin disorders generally feel quite embarrassed and want to get rid of it as quickly as possible. It is a bit like Job’s story in the Bible. If they can’t get rid of it, people go to great length to hide it.
Bill also has some pretty severe acne on his nose, which he didn’t even mention. Then he showed me his arms and his legs and there were numerous large patches of psoriasis eruption. I have seen people with far less and smaller outbreaks with much more concern than he had. That was quite interesting to me.
I asked many many questions and he truly did not care about the psoriasis. He wasn’t hiding any emotions at all nor was he avoiding my questions, in fact he was genuinely puzzled that everyone was making such a big deal out of it. The question for me was: Is he telling me the truth? How does one know whether the person is telling the truth? First, it is in the person’s interest to get better. They are not coming to waste their money. At the same time it is so unusual to not care about one’s own skin that I was puzzled by it. So I asked a lot of questions and I looked for inconsistencies. I also looked at his body language. He was very relaxed, not at all on the defensive from my probing questions.
The facial acne is gone, too.
The remedy was repeated several times and the psoriasis eventually completely cleared up.
I started again with the same remedy because he expressed similar qualities as before and it proved to be as effective. The remedy should really have been taken longer than he did but seeing the psoriasis gone, he didn’t feel there was any reason to go any further with it. The psoriasis cleared up quickly because the VF (Vital Force) on the emotional level is quite healthy. Most psoriasis cases are not like this and take much longer to clear.
