Statistics show that as many as 2-4% of the population suffer from Psoriasis, a chronic skin ailment characterized by patches of red and itchy skin and papules. It can be a great source of discomfort and embarrassment for many people. Psoriasis is not very well understood and some of the most common questions related to the disease include whether psoriasis is a permanent skin condition, whether lasting relief is at all possible and if possible, how can it be treated? It is undoubtedly a difficult condition to treat, but with the right treatment, permanent relief is certainly possible. Natural psoriasis treatments may hold the key.
What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is an immune mediated skin disease, as the rashes and papules that develop on the skin are triggered by the immune system of the body. As a result of build up of toxins in the body the immune system mistakes normal skin cells to be pathogens and ultimately starts attacking the body; thereby leading to irritation and inflammation. The symptoms of this inflammatory condition can then show up as chronic skin rashes and eruptions.
Symptoms and causes of psoriasis
While the exact reason for the development of psoriasis is not known, there are certain factors which can trigger and exacerbate the condition, such as stress, skin injury, changes in climatic conditions, reactions to certain types of drugs, reactions to certain foods and even genetic factors. Some of the most common symptoms of psoriasis include development of red patches on the skin, white and flaky skin rashes like deposits on the skin; thick flaky patches like dandruff on the scalp; ridged or thickened nails; swollen joints; genital lesions; blood spots on the skin and dry and crackled skin etc.
Treatment of psoriasis
Systematic treatment approaches like allopathic and other alternative methods of treatment can be used to treat and keep the symptoms under control. Allopathic treatment options make use of certain types of medications and drugs like topical corticosteroids, topical retinoids, light therapy, vitamin D analogues, cyclosporine, salicylic acid, anthralin etc.
Natural or alternative treatments
While allopathic medications are used to merely treat and control the symptoms, alternative treatments, especially Ayurvedic herbal treatment options aim to provide a more holistic approach to the treatment method by directly targeting the root cause of the problem instead of just treating or controlling the symptoms. Since psoriasis often occurs due to accumulation of toxins in the body, Ayurvedic treatments help to eliminate toxins from the blood, normalize the internal equilibrium and reinvigorate the body’s own healing mechanism. The approach here is to treat the problem from the inside out.
While natural treatments may take a little longer than allopathic and other conventional modes of treatment like topical corticosteroids, topical retinoids, light therapy etc., natural treatments definitely have a longer lasting and holistic effect. Some of the common herbs that are used to treat psoriasis are:
Smilax china (Madhusnuhi) – anti-inflammatory, inhibits abnormal cell proliferation
Thespesia populnea (Gardhabandha) – anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, antioxidant
Psoralea corylifolia (Bakuchi) – anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial
