Fifty years ago there was no psoriasis cure. Fast forward to today - there is still none. Orthodox psoriasis treatments are designed merely to alleviate the symptoms of psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and eczema. However, what "can't be done" Dr. Pagano did for fifty years! Dr. Pagano got remarkable results with all types of psoriasis patients, because he viewed the disease from the "inside-out" rather than the "outside-in."


Dr. Pagano helped and healed psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and eczema patients for fifty years with natural measures that fell within his scope of practice as a chiropractic physician: primarily spinal adjustments and nutritional counseling, based on the premise that all types of psoriasis arise from a build-up of toxins in the intestines (The Leaky Gut Syndrome) which then manifests itself on the skin. After nearly thirty years of research, he wrote a report of his thesis and his work in his landmark book Healing Psoriasis: The Natural Alternative which he initially self-published. Dr. Pagano's book contains before and after photos of his patients, describes the causes of psoriasis and his protocol for treating it. The book quickly became a best-seller on, achieving and maintaining the rank of #1 in the category of psoriasis for over fifteen years. The publication and distribution of the book is now in the hands of Turner Publications.

Since Dr. Pagano's approach to healing psoriasis is based on his psoriasis diet, patients and readers were constantly besieging him with requests for recipes that follow his dietary treatment for psoriasis. After years of collecting recipes as well as having original ones created by professional chefs, Dr. Pagano released Dr. John's Healing Psoriasis Cookbook in the year 2000.

In 2008, as more information was wanted about intestinal permeability (the underlying cause of psoriasis as he understood it) Dr. Pagano researched and wrote One Cause, Many Ailments: The Leaky Gut Syndrome: What It Is and How It May Be Affecting your Health, published by the A.R.E. Press.

Dr. Pagano spoke throughout the United States and Europe regarding his natural approach to healing psoriasis. He presented his findings before distinguished audiences in Japan, in India (sponsored by the Dalai Lama), and before the Russian Academy of Science in Moscow! In June 2001 he was invited to address the World Psoriasis Conference hosted by the National Psoriasis Foundation. Dr. Pagano appeared and was interviewed on countless radio and television programs. Healing Psoriasis: The Natural Alternative has been translated into Finnish, Japanese, Russian, Italian and French, and several other translations are in process.

Although Dr. Pagano passed away in December 2012, he was that rarest of individuals - a true "Renaissance man!" In addition to being a knowledgeable physician compassionately dedicated to the needs of his patients, he also wrote and performed his own original songs. Dr. Pagano was also an accomplished artist who illustrated his own books and was known for his paintings of the American West which grace many private collections.
