About the Author

Elliott Douglas Derzaph was born and raised in Canada. He traveled and lived in various cities in Central and Western Canada. In the mid 1970's, he immigrated to the United States where he became an American citizen. He lived in Hawaii for 5 years while attending school studying Philosophy in which he later obtained a degree. During the same period, he was the personal aide to distinguished author, psychoanalyst, philosopher and lecturer, Dr. Kenneth (Thane) Walker.

Upon leaving Hawaii and settling in Los Angeles, he entered the world of computers, later specializing in Project Management. In 1990, the author started his own business as a Project Manager including Research & Development and Consulting.

Elliott has discovered the necessity of lifelong learning and has engage in perpetual pursuit of knowledge. He specializes in the field of “Emotional Intelligence,” for which he received a U.S. registered trademark in 1994. Elliott, an entrepreneur and researcher, has written books, scripts and poems as well as doing volunteer work since his youth... including marketing, text compilation (a book on Philosophy), video and digitizing. He regularly contributes to a variety of non-profit organizations and has won “Man of the Year” twice for his volunteer work. He has traveled throughout North and Central America as well as Europe.He has a loving wife who is an attorney and spirited young son.

The author was prompted to write this book by the questions of his many friends, acquaintances and family who were curious about the psoriasis data he had started to compile since 1978. Further impetus was given by his conversations with many psoriasis sufferers who indicated there was an extreme lack of information on the subject.

The author felt that if just one idea was helpful to each reader in relieving some of the discomfort of psoriasis, it was well worth his efforts in writing this book.
