One of the highlights of my year is the National Psoriasis  Awareness Weak in the Philippines, It starts from October 23, until October 29, which also World Psoriasis Day. (Proclamation No. 179 dated May 30, 2011.) It is a worldwide unity for people living with Psoriasis. It’s primary purpose is to act as a focus for people – patients, doctors, nurses and the general public – to raise awareness of psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis to give people with Psoriasis and/or Psoriatic Arthritis the attention and consideration they deserve. World Psoriasis Day (WPD) is also useful as a channel to encourage health authorities to offer better access to the most appropriate treatments.

And many more participants..

I was so happy  and  inspired with meeting a lot of my fellow “Skin brothers and sisters” during the event. So uplifting to know that we are not alone in our condition.

I know how you feel, you’re not alone.


I am sure that a lot of the people that I met were also like me before joining our group, depressed and felt alone in my suffering.

Psoriasis Philippines or Psorphil Inspire people with psoriasis to realize they are not alone
Psoriasis Philippines or Psorphil Inspires people with psoriasis to realize they are not alone.


But thanks to Psoriasis Philippines I was able to overcome my depression as I met people like me who have since inspired me to be active in my advocacy in spreading the message that ” Psoriasis is Not Contagious ” and that we can still live a happy and active life even with Psoriasis.

Thank you Psorphil, Psoriasis Philippines - Josef de Guzman

gorgeous ladies


I love this! “Fight Raise Gain” Breaking Barriers for people with psoriasis.


organizers, psor coaches, volunteers and moderators, Thank you for your efforts, we appreciate everything you have done to make this happen.


Our Psoriasis Philippines President Josef De Guzman has done so much to spread love and awareness since the time I have joined the group.

From numerous awareness campaigns,proving Psorcoaches to give health tips and advice and outreaches to the far provinces or Psorphil Caravan of hope, BMW, Hug-Me-Campaign that has reached so much of our brethren.

Mr. Josef De Guzman
Mr. Josef De Guzman #GoldenBoy is the President, PsorAsiaPacific; President, Psoriasis Philippines (PsorPhil); Treasurer, International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA); Chairman, World Psoriasis Day SC (WPD); Member, Board of Trustees, Medical Transparency Alliance (MeTA) Philippines; and Member, Philippine Alliance of Persons with Chronic Illness (PAPCI)


His life story was even shared and broadcast nationwide on  ABS CBN’s Maalaala mo kaya. I’m sure that this has reached a vast majority of Filipinos to help the campaign.

Last October 1, The  episode Maalaala mo kaya, the best drama series  in ABS CBN’s the actor JC de Vera portrays Josef De Guzman  true to life story of having psoriasis. The drama series  gives the audience a close approximation of the symptoms of the disease, as well as conveying the information that Psoriasis isn’t contagious. It was truly an inspiration for other patients as well.

  70. Hi to every body, it’s my first pay a visit of this website; this webpage contains awesome and
    truly excellent information for readers.

  71. Hi, I’ve been diagnosed with HIV, my CD4 was 91. They put me straight on Tribuss. They also gave me ilvitrim and norstan-isoniazid. That was a week ago. Now I am always tired and moody. Are these the side effects of all this? My stomach is burning,that feeling of a pregnant woman. Is there something wrong. Pls help.

  72. Your books have meant a lot to me and I reflexively found myself jumping to your defense on the Sweeping Zen website. As a childhood victim of therapists and their big pharma masters the language of her article really bothered me. I railed against her in the comments section as childishly as any zen teacher. I think the big question for me is, is there any benefit to practicing buddhism? It all seems pretty pointless to me. I’ve seen no evidence that long-time practitioners are any happier or wiser than anyone else and they kind of seem ill-suited to help anyone else. Anyone else finished with this sad theater? Who says there has to be answers anyway?

  73. As the admin of this site is working, no doubt very rapidly it will be famous, due
    to its quality contents.
