Ayurvedic treatment for Psoriasis

September 12, 2019

Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition which exhibits itself on the skin. But it can affect the whole system. Psoriasis grows very fast and results in reddened inflamed patches having whitish scales on them or dry and scaly patches on the skin.

Uneven and unhealthy food habits, consumption of foodstuffs in the wrong combination, excess intake of yogurt, black gram, seafood, sour or salted, etc can trigger psoriasis inducing pathogenesis. Stress, alcohol and tobacco consumption may also lead to psoriasis.

Improper handling of psoriasis leads to psoriatic arthritis, heart conditions and/or other complications. Medical handling by steroids has been never the right way to deal with it. Oral or topical application of steroids will only make conditions worse. It will take the condition of the skin to the deeper tissues. All complications follow the same modality of treatment. This treatment gives temporary relief and, to a certain extent, some cosmetic benefit. But, in reality, steroids cannot be continued for long durations as it is harmful to all internal vital organs.

Ayurvedic treatment for psoriasis involves a total body cleansing technique that clear the scales from the uppermost skin but internally insulates our body from foreign impurities. Therefore, it can get rid of psoriasis permanently. It also avoids other blood impurity related diseases like psoriasis arthritis, debility, and autoimmune problems. The main Ayurveda treatment used to treat psoriasis is Panchakarma Treatment. Panchakarma treatments use plant-based remedies and dietary changes. These are meant to detox and purify the body. A vegetarian diet is often recommended. The Panchakarma Treatments starts with pre-treatment procedures of internal medication(also known as snehana) and then continues with external medication( also known as abhyanga)

According to Ayurveda, psoriasis is caused due to the imbalance developed between the doshas within the body due to the increased level of toxins.
