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.
