Effective Ayurvedic Treatment for Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a non-contagious and common skin condition which causes rapid skin cell reproduction. This results in red and dry patches of thickened skin. The dry flakes and the skin scales are the result of rapid build-up of skin cells. Psoriasis commonly affects the skin of the elbows, knees and scalp.
What are the causes of psoriasis?

Psoriasis is caused due to a variety of reasons. Heredity can be crucial. Consumption of opposite foods, trauma on the skin like cuts, bruises or burns, skin irritants, excessive smoking, alcohol consumption and mental stress or psychological trauma can also be responsible for causing it.

What are the symptoms of psoriasis?

  • Itchy and burning skin
  • Pus-filled pimples
  • Skin redness and rashes
  • Restricted joint motion
  • Skin blisters
  • Dry skin patches

What is the Ayurvedic view of psoriasis?

According to Ayurveda, Psoriasis appears due to imbalance of two doshas - Vata and Kapha. Vata and Kapha doshas manifest in the skin and cause accumulation of toxins. These toxins accumulate in deep tissues like rasa, rakta, mansa and lasika. These toxins will cause contamination of the deeper tissues, eventually leading to Psoriasis.

Purification of blood and tissues is the main aim of Ayurvedic treatment in the different cases of Psoriasis. Toxins are cleansed from the body and the digestion restored to prevent further accumulation. Nourishing herbs are then administered to strengthen and tone the tissues to promote complete healing of the skin.
Which are the diet & lifestyle pointed by Ayurveda?
  • Avoid consuming opposite foods.
  • Do not take cold water bath immediately after a heavy exercise.
  • Do not eat too much of salty, sour or acidic foods.
  • Avoid sleeping in the afternoons.
  • Say no to radish, sesame, jiggery, curds, fish and other sour foods.
