Psoriasis is a very chronic disease that causes thick, silvery, red scaly patches on the skin and causes inflammation of the skin. This skin problem is seen in the 15-30 age group. This is not a contagious disease, but is caused by a faulty immune system. There are different types of Psoriasis – Plague, Guttate, Pustular, Inverted and Erythrodermic Psoriasis.
The factors that cause this skin disorder are seasonal changes, any injury to the skin, hereditary factor, and various other infections. Too much exposure to dirt and dust and walking in bare boots can also lead to this skin disease.
Home remedies for psoriasis can be chosen as a safe measure to combat its harmful consequences. It is beneficial to use a warm Epsom salts bath in conjunction with the olive oil application. Seawater is really effective as a cure for this problem. Therefore, either bathing with sea water or using it on the affected area will be a good remedy. Vegetables such as bitter gourd, cucumber, carrot, grape beet, and cabbage leaf are easily available home remedies. Bitter gourd juice mixed with honey when consumed daily is a valuable treatment for psoriasis. Among the most natural resource of all is Sunlight.
Aloe Vera oil or cream is also effective when applied to the skin. Boiling shikakai in water and bathing with it or washing the diseased skin is another remedy. Cover the area with a fresh banana leaf and use the fortified almond in the area. Some of the other alternatives are drinking buttermilk at least twice a day, drinking sesame seeds soaked in water on an empty stomach, and maintaining a diet rich in vitamin E is very helpful in the treatment of psoriasis.
There are certain restrictions in eating habits that should be considered. It is important to avoid spicy and pungent foods as these create toxins in the body that increase the growth of psoriasis. Salt and curd should be avoided as they cause itching and irritation. Fatty foods such as butter and too much oil intake should be avoided. Consumption of bitter food is healthy as it removes the toxins formed.
Psoriasis is a skin disease that comes on suddenly. It’s very painful. Even when water is touched on the affected area, it gives tremendous pain. Apart from home treatment and chemical treatment, Aurvedic treatment has been found to be very successful on a large scale. It gradually eliminates the skin problem and maintains its effect for a very long time.
